West Visits Newly Installed Regime in Kiev

43324April 23, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – The BBC reported in their article, “Ukraine crisis: Biden to meet Kiev leaders in show of support,” that: 

US Vice-President Joe Biden is to meet Ukraine’s new leaders in a show of support for the pro-Western government. 

Mr Biden is due to discuss the forthcoming elections with the
country’s interim prime minister and president during his visit to Kiev
.

A
phone conversation between the US secretary of state and Russia’s
foreign minister earlier led to both sides blaming the other over the
crisis.

Biden’s
visit is not the first time Western representatives have traveled to
Kiev in direct support of the “Euromaidan” protests and the subsequent
unelected regime that violently seized power. US Senator John McCain
would literally take the stage with the ultra-right, Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party leaders as well as meet with “Fatherland Party” member and future “prime minister,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

 

In mid-April, CIA director John Brennan was confirmed to have travelled to Kiev. Forbes in their article, “Why CIA Director Brennan Visited Kiev: In Ukraine The Covert War Has Begun,” reported that: 

Over
the weekend, CIA director John Brennan travelled to Kiev, nobody knows
exactly why, but some speculate that he intends to open US intelligence
resources to Ukrainian leaders about real-time Russian military
maneuvers. The US has, thus far, refrained from sharing such knowledge
because Moscow is believed to have penetrated much of Ukraine’s
communications systems – and Washington isn’t about to hand over its
surveillance secrets to the Russians.

Forbes
would continue by suggesting arrangements were being made to prepare
Ukraine for a possible proxy war with Russia – describing the
shortcomings of Western backing during another proxy confrontation with
Russia, the Georgia-Russia conflict in 2008 where Western equipped
Georgian troops were humiliated after invading South Ossetia and
incurring a counterattack by superior Russian forces. 

 US Roadshow to Cover for Kiev’s Nonexistent Legitimacy 


First
McCain’s and now Biden’s trip to Kiev is meant to lend the “Euromaidan”
derived regime international recognition and – Washington hopes – the
illusion of legitimacy. However, the “Euromaidan” protests were led by a toxic mixture of Neo-Nazis, bigots, racists, and anti-Semites,
many of whom were armed and conducted a campaign of violence to
overthrow the elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych.

These included the Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party, the “Fatherland Party,” and the admittedly armed Neo-Nazi “Right Sector” movement. The BBC would even concede that armed Neo-Nazis spearheaded the violence that ultimately overthrew the Ukrainian government in a short video report titled, “Neo-Nazi threat in new Ukraine,” which showed Neo-Nazis occupying the vandalized, ransacked offices of the ultra-right’s political enemies.

That the current regime has afforded top
ministry positions to Neo-Nazi parties like Svoboda is particularly
troubling. The Daily Caller in an article titled, “Ukraine party accused of anti-Semitism receives top positions in new government,” would admit:

As the fires die down from the turmoil in Kiev, a
political party that has been accused of promoting anti-Semitism and
xenophobia is set to reap the benefits of the new government
arrangement. 

The Svoboda Party will take control of not one, but three ministries in the interim government.

These posts include the deputy prime minister and the
heads of the agriculture and environmental ministries. In addition to
these positions, a Svoboda lawmaker was appointed the new prosecutor general in the interim government.

If the nature of Svoboda is widely known, having been reported on for years by
both the Western media and Western human rights organizations, then
surely the United State’s and the European Union are well aware of the
true nature of the new regime in Kiev. McCain and Biden’s rush to lend
support for the regime is an attempt not to bolster leadership in
Ukraine that represents the alleged values of the West, but to cover up
the fact that the regime in Kiev represents the very antithesis of these
values.

And
of course, the very fact that the regime came to power through a
violent coup, and not “democratic elections” as the West has repeatedly
claimed is the only way a legitimate government can come to power,
further undermines both the legitimacy of the regime, and those that
seek to now back it – particularly the United States government and the
European Union.
