MID Sez Ukraine’s Recruiting Foreign Mercs Attempt to Suppress Patriotic Resistance

00 US Soldier in Afghanistan. 4 April 2012

This is Kabul… THIS is what the USA wants to create in Kiev. Think on that… Victoria Nuland sticks in her thumb and pulls out her plums… “Oh, what a good girl am I… to hell with the Ukrainian people… I’ve got mine!” Evil walks the corridors of power in Washington… Satan laughs at his victory. Remember, the Axis of Evil is Washington-London-Brussels…   


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) commented on media reports claiming that the Ukrainian junta wants to recruit personnel from private foreign military companies “to maintain law and order” might suggest that they want to suppress patriotic protest and discontent. The MID said, “One can state that, in the absence of popular Ukrainian support, the Euromaidan junta has only one option if it wants to remain in power… to mobilise any support possible from foreign sponsors, including foreign mercenaries. Amongst the candidates for the role of gendarme is Greystone Limited, registered in Barbados, which is part of the Academi Corporation. It’s an analogue, or, probably, an affiliate of the Blackwater private army, whose ‘soldiers’ face charges of committing serious and regular human rights abuses in troubled regions. It looks as though this practise, if they really carry it out, goes against Ukrainian laws that ban foreign citizens from working with private security companies. Such initiatives prove that those who seized power in Kiev can’t guarantee minimal order or even their own security. The question arises, ‘What does this plan cost; where will the money come from?’ To what extent will they the shift the burden of paying for these expensive foreign specialists to ordinary Ukrainians who, besides swallowing a painful tax increase, including taxes on gas, as the precondition for securing IMF loans, will have to tighten their belts even more?”


Not to put too fine a face upon it, there’s no money to pay for pricey mercs. The only way that the junta can get Blackwater muscle is for Langley to front the funds. This is political dynamite. If anything were GUARANTEED to piss off patriotic elements, it’d be importing foreign mercs. Remember, King George III lost a lot of cred in the American colonies when he brought in Hessians… English soldiers were one thing… but foreigners? That, perhaps, gave the rebels enough of a leg up to allow them to win through in the end.

It shows the junta’s desperation. They have less and less connection with reality with every day. By the way, there are plenty of jobs as waiters and short-order cooks on Second Av…
