    Clinton, Democrats, and the Atlantic Council have invested a great deal of time and money in getting their people installed in Ukraine. They will do everything possible to preserve that investment. Fusion GPS, Russia Russia Russia, McCain's dirty dossier, and so forth are means to that end. Victor Pinchuk has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. https://www.clintonfoundation.org/contributors?category=$10,000,001+to+$25,000,000 He has lent his private plane to the Clintons.

    The firm headed by Hillary Clinton’s former chief strategist, Mark Penn, is helping run incumbent President Victor Yushchenko’s campaign. Meanwhile Paul Manafort, whose firm worked on Republican John McCain’s losing effort, and Tad Devine, a top strategist on the Democratic presidential campaigns of Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004, are consulting for Victor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian frontrunner in the polls.

    KIEV, Ukraine — After his name surfaced last August in a secret ledger listing millions of dollars in payments from a pro-Russian party in Ukraine, Paul Manafort not only lost his job running Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign but also assumed center stage in a bizarre internecine struggle among Ukrainian political forces. On Monday, the intrigue took another turn, when a member of Parliament in Ukraine released documents that he said showed that Mr. Manafort took steps to hide the payments, which were tied to Mr. Manafort’s work for former President Viktor F. Yanukovych. The documents included an invoice that...

  • UN climate change body suffers mammoth European carbon fraud [Russia, Ukraine]

    The United Nations body that oversees greenhouse gas reductions is reeling from another cap-and-trade scandal that may have put 600 million tons of carbon emissions into the atmosphere — roughly speaking, the annual CO2 output of Canada or Britain — while the emissions were ostensibly suppressed, according to an independent study. In the process, the fraudsters, largely in Russia and Ukraine, were likely able to transfer credits for more than 400 million tons of their apparently bogus greenhouse savings by April 2015 into Europe's commercial carbon trading system — the largest in the world — thereby undermining that continent's ambitious...

    “Ukraine is at War,” states Herman Pirchner, Jr., President of the American Foreign Policy Council in Washington, D.C. The AFPC is a much needed Conservative alternative to the Council on Foreign Relations, which although much larger, exhibits too many Globalist themes and aims while diminishing America’s presence on the world stage. President Pirchner explains in his just released treatise that sanctions by the Obama administration and the EU have done little to tamp down Vladimir Putin’s campaign of aggression known as “hybrid warfare.” (1) Russia’s persistence in its Ukraine offensive is deeply rooted in the bloody history of the Ukraine...

    We know not what is good until we have lost it: Mikheil Saakashvili, who actively supported the Euromaidan turmoil that toppled President Viktor Yanukovych, now asserted that it will take 20 years to reach the social level of Yanukovych's Ukraine. Ukraine has slid into such poverty that it will take 20 years to reach the level of 2013, if the country develops in favorable conditions, Odessa region governor Mikheil Saaksshvili said, local Timer reported Sunday. "Now Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe. If the collapse of the economy suddenly stops, and Ukraine develops by four percent annually, we will...

    Revelations that Hunter Biden and Aleksander Kwasniewski serve on the board of a company controlled by a Yanukovych ally raise serious conflict of interest questions for Western countries’ Ukraine policy. DONETSK, Ukraine — U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s youngest son has joined the board of a gas company owned by an ally of Ukraine’s fugitive ex-president Viktor Yanukovych and a key European interlocutor with Kiev who was previously president of Poland. The move raises questions about a potential conflict of interest for Joe Biden, who was the White House’s main interlocutor with Yanukovych while the latter was president and has...

    THE sight of Ukraine’s corrupt leadership taking to the skies in private jets has finally focused attention on how the oligarchy led by former president Viktor Yanukovych looted the country for so long, necessitating the bail-out that Europe’s taxpayers will be asked to pay for. Before complaining too loudly, though, we might ask how our own leaders allowed it to happen. The Eye first reported the staggering scale of corruption routed through UK “limited liability partnerships” (LLPs) in 2012, documenting the millions flowing out of Ukraine, usually via Latvian and Austrian banks. These corporate vehicles were created by the last...

    In October of 2008, Sarah Palin was mocked as being too far-fetched by foreign policy media elites for predicting that if Obama won the presidency, Putin’s Russia’s might indeed invade Ukraine. "Saturday Night Live" had fun with Palin by lampooning her statement when she said one could see Russia from Alaska. Yet late last week, Palin got the last laugh when Putin invaded the Ukrainian Crimea, “Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I'm usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ‘an extremely far-fetched scenario’ by the ‘high-brow’ Foreign Policy magazine....

His condition was said to be 'grave', Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper, known as MK, has claimed, citing unofficial sources. Vladimir Putin dismissed a report earlier this week that Yanukovych had died from a heart attack in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don. On Tuesday, the Kremlin leader said his former ally was 'alive and healthy', and that he had met him several days earlier. However, Yanukovych has not been seen in public since giving a press conference in Russia...

    Simferopol, Ukraine (CNN) -- Ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych gave a defiant performance Friday in Russia, as he insisted that he remained the country's legitimate elected leader and was not giving up yet. "I intend to continue the fight for the future of Ukraine against those who, with fear and with terror, are attempting to replace the power," he said, speaking Russian, not Ukrainian. "Nobody has overturned me. I was compelled to leave Ukraine due to a direct threat to my life and my nearest and dearest." Yanukovych, making his first public appearance since his ouster Saturday, said the newly...

    Ukraine’s fugitive president surfaced on Thursday in Moscow, where he was said to have been seen at an opulent five-star hotel and a Kremlin country retreat once favored by the late Boris Yeltsin. Viktor Yanukovych reportedly was granted protection in Russia, but he has not received a warm reception. Although Russia still considers him the legitimate president of Ukraine, the Kremlin has treated him cautiously and portrayed him as a coward who betrayed those who stood by him. …
