'Complete lie': Pro-Russian official denies role in mysterious leaflets to Ukrainian Jews
Foxnews.com ^ | 4/1/2014

Posted on 04/18/2014 6:01:29 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

A pro-Russian official initially thought to be behind fliers telling Ukrainian Jews to register vehemently denied any involvement on Friday, telling Fox News the leaflets were a "complete lie."

The leaflets were first reported in Israel's Ynet News. The news site said the notices were circulated in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, demanding that Jews register -- as well as provide a list of property they own -- or else face deportation and revocation of citizenship. Pro-Russian activists have asserted partial control over some government buildings in that city.

Ynet reported that the notices, sent as the Passover holiday began, were signed by Denis Pushilin, chairman of Donetsk's temporary government.

But after the fliers gained international attention -- including a public rebuke by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry -- Pushilin and others described them as a deliberate "provocation."

Pushilin said his organization did not distribute the leaflets. To back up his case, he said the notices were too sloppy to have been sent out by him.

"Moreover, this provocation has been done unprofessionally -- first of all, it is signed as 'people's governor Denis Pushilin,' and I never referred to myself as such and nobody called me like that first," he told Fox News. "Secondly the stamp that is there, it is bigger in size meaning simply it has been done in a Photoshop. And third, if you read the text you will see that it's relatively badly written."

The flier seems about as realistic as Obama’s birth certificate.

The Spokesman for the “People’s Republic of Donetsk,” a few hundred strong, is apparently a notorious anti-semite and neo-nazi in East Ukraine. If they are not actually anti-Semites, then why are such high level positions in this little “country” filled with such people?

Even if it’s true, what’s the big deal?

Registration never leads a government to oppress the people in any way, shape or form, right?

Because that’s what the left tells us when they start trying to push national gun registration.

I thought yesterday the story was that Pushilin said yes they distributed them, but no they didn’t write them.

Well, that's true. But what if that was the intent (i.e. to publish a message and then deny the attribution).

I certainly don't know what is going on here...yet. But the evidence is building.

One wonders if Obama has castrated the CIA. With Brennan in charge, the executive management has been corrupted. But the under-structure...probably more alive than ever.

Keep your ear to the track.

The note is "too sloppy"?

I have it on good authority that Pushilin is indeed a slob.

Has poor penmanship, never cleans up his room and has two GAZ Volgas up on blocks in his front yard.

It probably was done by the NSA at the direction of the DNC. False charges of racism is all they have.

Right.

This is much more interesting than would appear on the surface.

I think we are right to be pouring over the tea leaves for the trigger for WWIII.

This may not be it...but it doesn't hurt to search.

The advancement of weapons--particularly nuclear weapons--makes the next war something of a different nature.

The planet itself and our very species is in danger.

As the devout followers of Allah believe..."we will domesticate the world for Him...or we will destroy it as he has commanded."

We are sitting on a powder keg...yet half of this nation is in denial of the danger of such.

Be of good cheer and pray to the True God.

It is possible that the end times are upon us.

Or not,;-)

Hang tough, grab your weapon...and wade into the enemy (for such is our destiny).

Total bullfeathers. It’s scary how Kerry jumped on this like it was the real deal. The US and EU war parties are slobbering to get us into war. Any excuse will do.

Neither side is particularly positive toward Jews. I think this is a non issue, simply both sides using Jews as a wedge issue, which will probably cause them harm in the long run.

Ukrainian Jews wrote an open letter to Putin asking him to stop lying and stop “saving” them.

Look at the signature list at the end. It basically covers every Jewish organization in Ukraine.

Skinheads? Have the 80’s returned? (Just kidding.)

Yes, the Ukraine has a history of Nazi collaborators and many of them joined the SS (Just as many French did as well), but I just don’t see the new interim government doing something this blatantly stupid while begging for the West’s help, just as I don’t see Putin doing anything this PR-stupid as well.

Something just doesn’t seem right.

And I have no doubt of the authencity of that letter. IMO Putin would love to use persecution of Jews as an excuse to intervene. What is western Europe going to say, no, leave the Jews to their fate. What Putin needs is a mini Kristalnacht. And if it could be established it was a Putin ruse, Barry and the Euros would jump on that. However I stand by my position that the Jews in the Ukraine are pawns possibly to be used by both sides. So few left, it’s a shame they can’t be left alone for the non Jewish Euros to fight amongst themselves.

Psychological Warfare (PSYWAR), or the basic aspects of modern psychological operations (PSYOP), have been known by many other names or terms, including Psy Ops, Political Warfare, “Hearts and Minds”, and Propaganda.[1] Various techniques are used, and are aimed at influencing a target audience’s value system, belief system, emotions, motives, reasoning, or behavior. It is used to induce confessions or reinforce attitudes and behaviors favorable to the originator’s objectives, and are sometimes combined with black operations or false flag tactics.

This is news to those of us who keep our ears to the tracks.;-)
