US intel: Russian spies, saboteurs infiltrating Ukraine

Full story: Hot Air

Think of this as a successful plan redeployed. After the Euromaidan protests overthrew the Viktor Yanukovich government, Crimea suddenly filled up with military forces without insignias that began seizing buildings, roads, and eventually the entire peninsula.

Russia’s activities in Crimea have been widely described in the west as an invasion. But while some Russian military forces did cross into Ukrainian territory, the Moscow government still claims that all of its military forces in Crimea are abiding by the terms of its agreement with Ukraine.

This, U.S. officials believe, is because Russia is invading Ukraine with its Spetsnaz — the special operations units and battalions attached to both the military and the country’s intelligence agencies.

U.S. intelligence officials now say Russia’s Spetsnaz are expanding into eastern and southern Ukraine, as well. The intelligence report from February assessed that Russian provocateurs would look to instigate low-level street brawls or “skirmishes” in eastern and southern Ukraine. The report also predicted that Russia’s shadow warriors would seek to pay off Ukrainians to attend pro-Russian rallies and in general fan the flames of separatism. And since then, eyewitnesses say, that’s exactly what’s happened.

One U.S. official said the U.S. military intelligence analysts suspect elements of the 45th Spetsnaz regiment of Russia’s military intelligence service known as the GRU were conducting the provocations in Ukraine.

“This is the use of deniable special operators under GRU control to create provocations and really these are quasi-deniable operations,” added John Schindler, a retired NSA counter-intelligence officer and specialist in Russian affairs who now teaches at the U.S. Naval War College.

Now starts the fearmongering of the pathetic Marxists in the White House! The filth funded and encouraged bands of thugs in Ukraine to murder and mayhem. The Marxists are the perps.

The sick bastards are now signing executive orders allowing the Hitler like tyranny from the White House to steal property from anyone they don't like objecting to their US/EU/Soros Axis nonsense of selling our birthrights to foreign concerns and then robbing us to finance supplying OUR natural gas to others in order to enslave them too!

Russia has every right to protect itself and its citizens from a US/EU/Soros funded neo-Nazi assault. They've lived through this type of crap before and survived with victory. Apparently, all the Nazi scum weren't eliminated and the US since 1997 (started under the traitor Clinton, who gave missile tech to Red China for campaign funds) has been funding and supporting their reemergence in the Ukraine.

Well, gee - somebody's got to counter those western spooks and ukranazi provocateurs invading from Kiev and keep those Ukrainians safe. Good job, spetsnaz. You've remembered the no. 1 boy scout motto - "always be prepared". ;-)

False propaganda from the US authorities is predicable, since people are starting to remember Senator McCain going to Kiev to meet with the neo-Nazi provocateurs in latter 2013. What was McCain doing fomenting the violence and killings that transpired? Why has the US been funding approximately fifty "NGOs" in Ukraine since 1997, who have direct associations with the neo-Nazi thugs even now taking three top positions in the illegal government in Kiev? Why couldn't the US/EU/Soros combination wait and allow the May elections? Why has the US/EU/Soros money lending machines allowed the sale of US utility companies to German and other country firms?

I can't figure out why Russia just doesn't ship 1000000 kalashnikovs and half as many RPGs to the Eastern Ukrainians and let them defend themselves. From what I hear on FOX, Russians are just as crazy as McCain but I think FOX might be exaggerating.

You mean this photo-op? He's getting kind of stale around the gills, don't you think?

What if he drops dead over there? Falls and can't get up or just keels over on the spot. Does he have a Life Alert buzzer? Oh boy, I hope that doesn't happen. CNN will say the Russians poisoned him and all hell will break lose.(or maybe there'll be fireworks and free cookies in the US. You never know with these things. Politics is just one big crap shoot.)

I see on the news that the nazi militias are now targeting Jews, who are now leaving the country for asylum in Israel. Now how is Uncle Tom Obamy going to square this one with his lords and masters in Tel Aviv? How will he spin this one in the media. You can't hide the truth forever and Obamy has just been busted!

And to think Stalin was an ally of the Nazis - who gave him half of Poland.

Two of a kind.

President Obama became the main opposition in Russia. Strange that Vekselberg, Avenue, Alekperov, Sechin, Prokhorov came under sanctions. Arayik Sargsyan, academician, President of the Geopolitical Academy, Honorary Consul of Macedonia to Armenia. http://start.westnet.ca/video.php...

Tell us something we don't already know. Russian provocateurs have been stirring up trouble in Eastern Ukraine for weeks. It's good that a tougher stance is now being taken against them with hundreds being denied entry at the border and Russians now requiring visas to enter Ukraine.

Russian neo nazi provocateurs stay out of Ukraine!

This type of provocation proves your dishonesty. The US Assistant Secretary of State admitted in December 2013 they had put Five Billion Dollars into encouraging street rabble, who eventually murdered people. Senator McCain met with the neo-Nazis, three of whom have been appointed to high government positions. The trouble and violence the US instigated has been going on for a lot longer than a couple of weeks. The trouble includes outright lies about their involvement and extreme allegations, which are never proven.

The rise of Naziism in Ukraine should not be allowed.

It is interesting how the anti-Jew and anti-Russian rhetoric from the thugs taking power in Kiev match perfectly with the anti-Israel policies and radical Muslim support of Obama. Some of those meeting with Obama's Assistant Secretary of State actually called for Chechen extremists to attack Russia, maybe with another school attack slaughtering many children. Obama has put 5 Billion Dollars into causing the unrest in Ukraine.

You're all criminals.

Next step; nationalization of their assets. Then we can complete this surreal turn around of the US becoming the old Soviet Union and Russia becoming the new US. LOL
