Ukraine Scenario Has CIA Modus Operandi Written All Over It

Original article: OPINION: Ukraine Scenario Has CIA Modus Operandi Written All Over It By: Daria Chernyshova of Ria Novosti Posted on: April 14, 2014.

Last Sunday evening, April 13, 2014 I was contacted by RIA Novosti and asked to give my commentary about rumors of CIA director John Brennan’s alleged visit to Kiev, Ukraine. I stated “Yes, I do believe that CIA director Brennan was in Kiev on Saturday,” as well as explaining my rationale. Approximately 8 hours after the article below that quoted me was published, this article was published and quickly went viral on the Internet: White House confirms CIA director visited Ukraine over weekend


MOSCOW, April 14 (RIA Novosti), Daria Chernyshova – The events unfolding in Ukraine are in line with other international Central Intelligence Agency operations, George Mapp, an investigative journalist and a contributor to the Daily Journalist, told RIA Novosti on Monday.

“The Ukraine scenario that has developed over the last several months has the CIA’s modus operandi written all over it,” Mapp told RIA Novosti.

“As far as the Central Intelligence Agency being involved in the protests, yes it is extremely likely that they have not only been involved but also engineered and orchestrated the protests from the onset,” he added.

Ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has said CIA director John Brennan met with Kiev authorities over the weekend.

A source close to Ukraine’s security agencies confirmed the CIA director visited the country under a false name and might have travelled to the city of Slaviansk in Eastern Ukraine, where Kiev authorities suppressed pro-federalization demonstrations by force. The decision to sanction the use of weapons and provoke bloodshed might have been influenced by the CIA chief.

“Yes, I do believe that CIA director Brennan was in Kiev on Saturday,” Mapp said.

“I have not as of yet received direct confirmation from any of my sources. Not only is the CIA extremely experienced in political coups, they have a history and thus experience in Ukraine. I am referring to the ‘Orange Revolution’ in 2004 and 2005,” he added.

At least three people, including a pro-federalization supporter, were killed in the clashes between forces loyal to Kiev, including Right Sector fighters, and the local protestors, who had seized a local government building, a district police department and a security service office.

On Sunday, Ukraine’s acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on his Facebook page that an operation was underway in the city involving “all the country’s law enforcement agencies.”

CIA veterans, who wished to remain anonymous, told RIA Novosti they were skeptical about Brennan’s visit to Ukraine. The political standoff between the West and Russia over Ukraine “is an extremely important and delicate chess match,” according to Mapp, so a visit of a high-ranking US official would be quite possible.

“The huge importance and implications depending on the outcome of this multi-faceted political chess match – it makes perfect sense that CIA director John Brennan would himself go to Ukraine,” Mapp said.

“Also, I don’t think that director Brennan would mind a bit of time away and a temporary distraction from Senator Feinstein and the Senate Intelligence Committee due to the current situation in Washington,” he added.

The US Embassy in Kiev hosted several training sessions for young digital enthusiasts known as “TechCamps” across Ukraine over the past two years. A TechCamp in Warsaw last October was attended by representatives of Polish NGOs and “socially active students from Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia and Belarus.”

The workshop in October 2012 in Kiev was kicked off by US Ambassador to Ukraine John F. Tefft, who expressed America’s commitment to youth development and said that technology in the hands of teachers, librarians, and youth advocates “gives hope for the future.”

On Monday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia is not interested in interfering in Ukraine’s domestic affairs. “It contradicts our interests,” he said at a press conference with the Sudanese foreign minister in Moscow. He also condemned the decision to use force, including army troops, against protesters in eastern Ukraine as extremely dangerous.

I have recently become re-acquainted with Journalism. Last summer I started a blog called Dobroyeutro which can be found at Dobroyeutro means good morning in Russian. However, I use it more in the slang sense of the word to mean 'wake up' or 'pay attention'. Due to recent life experiences and acquaintances with authors Daniel Estulin and Dimitri Khalezov (which have now become friends). I have thus become fascinated with investigative journalism. I guess you could describe me as a blogger and amateur investigative journalist. It is more than just a hobby but I say amateur because I am not getting paid but I enjoy passionately seeking, discovering and sharing the truth with as many people as I can. I earned a B.B.A. in Finance / Investments in 1996 from Baruch College in New York city. I finished my degree in the evenings whilst working on Wall Street during the day. I started at the bottom and rather quickly eventually worked my way up to an international equities trader for over 12 years. I traded foreign stocks and currencies for such firms as Deutsche Bank, S.G. Warburg which was then bought out by Swiss bank as well as a couple of other firms. It was through this career that I was able to travel and see the world. I am very fortunate to have traveled to over 30 countries including India, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, United Kingdom, Kuwait, Cuba, Morocco and Russia. It was through my world travels that unexpected and unpredictable life experiences led me to become re-acquainted with writing and journalism. I am currently unemployed and plan to devote most of my time to writing my upcoming book project. It has always been a dream an goal of mine to write a book. The titled that I have selected for the moment, though rather long but very apropos to what will be written, thus the title is "Drug Smuggler's, Gun Runner's, Russian Intelligence Officers and Terrorist's Wives: And These Are My Friend's, Not My Enemy's"
