BREAKING: Leaked recording—Ukrainian Opposition Shoots Its Own

Reading Time: < 1 minute

CaptureAs noted by our very own Russ Baker, a lot of the news coming out of Ukraine seems eerily familiar—and not in a good way.

And whatayaknow, the Russian state television channel RT has now published a leaked telephone conversation between Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton. In it, Paet relays some important takeaways from his recent trip to Ukraine. Among the highlights: that opposition protestors and police killed by sniper fire in the early days of the protests — which galvanized world attention — were actually the victims of guns hired by the opposition.

Skip to the 8:20 mark to hear it.

This follows on the heels of a leaked conversation between State Department officials over who would be best to install in the next Ukrainian government. As it would turn out, their choice became the next prime minister. Funny how things work out.

US intelligence and its ersatz-comrades at the National Endowment for Democracy have long been known to cook up shady protest movements. But Russian intelligence is just as much a player in the game. Though not known conclusively at the present time, it’s widely believed that each call was recorded and leaked by the FSB.

    Nuland “EFF the EU”, this cost us so far $5 billion? and now, the midan guys in Kiev kill their own, and blame the government? Earlier, report of British sniper teams killing people in the streets of Syria from roof tops also, and blamed Assad?
    It does not matter how many times it has been revealed to our robots (citizens) the evil foreign policies, still, the average American has no clue.

    Having the old bonesman Kerry rattle his stick at Putin ‘Not to interfere in the sovereign politics of Ukraine’ while his very own ass.sec.State Victoria Nuland is outed IN Kiev saying ‘Fu ck the EU” in a phone call with US Ambassador Pyatt – scheming the revolt – plus photographs of McCain(you’ve done it again) posturing with Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party leader Oleh Tyahnibok , Kiev, December 15 2013; breaks ALL known boundaries of H y p o c r i t e.

    William Engdahl at boilingfrogs came right out and said veteran US intelligence sources told him snipers were GLADIO. Paet confirms “stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition”. Engdahl tells us after Nuland/Pyatt fingers-in-pie phone call was youtubed, EU went it alone, creating consensus without USA, which was the point the snipers were activated. (“At the end of this process came an agreement between Yanukovych and the opposition leaders, witnessed by the foreign ministers of Poland and Germany, as well as a Russian representative and Russia, to hold early presidential elections and guarantee amnesty to the protesters. It seemed like finally the standoff was over.” )

    I guess someone didn’t like the direction things were going in.

      This sniper idea is a cook book process that has been repeated all over the world. Kill people from roof tops, and blame the government. Voila, instant anger among the croud. The dude who discovered that system at the CIA should have patented this concept.

    Reading this made me think of the report you gave about the FBI allegedly having a plan for sniper fire “in case it was needed” with the Occupy Movement? The possibility of sniper fire being used in some way to create chaos or to blame Occupy protestors for escalation; all of the possibilities are very disturbing with the expectation that this spring will probably bring more Occupy protests.

    Sun Tsu says “hulabaloo in East, attack in West”… The whole operation, snipers and all, was obviously betrayed to the Russians by the Saudis – to remove their disobedient pal, and it has to do with removing a man from his job, the coup in usa, not eu…and it’s still going on.

    Eerily familiar? Sounds way too much like the CIA in Tehran, Iran, in 1953, financing certain elements to overthrow the democratically elected government there.

    Obama’s legacy, should he ever have one, will be that he was the president who was so involved in the coverup of the illegal mortgage foreclosure (fraudclosure) of millions of Americans.

    Could you imagine o’bama doing that? I could but of course, he’d reverse it to have gov’t shoot gov’t to make the protestors look worse.

    This story is still being buried by most of the mainstream media.
