 as you read thru this remember how the empire is always complaining about other countries meddling in the affairs of others, and featuring how wonderful, democratic and supportive of the intentions of the native populations. this article also clearly presents evidence of why i haven't paid any attention to the mumblings of 'our free press' for years as they are only mouthpieces for the empire and its machinations. victoria nuland is scum as is her husband. they are neocons who only exist to expand the empire at the expense of everyone else;

US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland, who choreographed the 2014 coup that overthrew Ukraine’s democratically-elected government and set the current crisis in motion, was invited by PBS NewsHour on Dec. 7 to explain the standoff in Ukraine.

Typical of Western media, the story began with Russia’s involvement in eastern Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea, which took place in March 2014. The crisis actually began a week earlier with the violent overthrow of democratically-elected President Viktor Yanukovych on Feb. 22, 2014. While accusations flew of Russian aggression, invasion and annexation, there was not a word about the US instigated coup or Nuland’s role in it.For the sin of declining a Western aid package loaded with austerity measures, and accepting instead an unencumbered Russian package, Yanukovych became a target for US regime change. Undersecretary Nuland’s role in the coup is essential to the story.

While Senators John McCain and Chris Murphy appeared on-stage in Kiev with far-right opposition leader Oleh Tyahnybok in support of the coup, Nuland and Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt passed out cookies to anti-government protesters in Maidan Square. This would be like Russian parliamentarians and diplomats coming to Washington to encourage protesters to overthrow the US government.

Behind the scenes, in an intercepted phone call with Pyatt, Nuland can be heard plotting the make-up of a government to succeed that of Yanukovych. "Yats is the guy" she said, referring to Arseniy Yatsenyuk, America’s preferred leader for the Ukrainian people.

Her plan for the other two opposition leaders, Vitali Klitschko and Oleh Tyahnybok, was to keep them out, saying "I don’t think Klitsch should go into the government" and "What he [Yatsenyuk] needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside." As for Europe’s competing interests in the outcome of the affair, she infamously said "Fuck the EU." Nuland had told the U.S.-Ukrainian Foundation on Dec. 13, 2013, that Washington had spent $5 billion over a decade to support Ukraine’s "European aspirations," in other words to pull it away from Russia.

The PBS NewsHour invited on just about the worst person in the US government to help Americans understand the crisis in Ukraine............read and watch more.......
