CIA And FBI Agents In Kiev 'Assisting Ukraine Security'
06 May, 2014
A German press report said: CIA and FBI agents are in Kiev and they are assisting the Kiev authority
The German newspaper Bild revealed: Numerous US CIA and FBI agents are helping the coup-appointed government in Kiev to “fight organized crime” in the south east of the country.
According to the daily, the CIA and FBI are advising the government in Kiev on how to deal with the ‘fight against organized crime’ and stop the violence in the country’s restive eastern regions.
John Brennan, the CIA head, met the acting Kiev prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and first vice-president Vitaly Yarema to discuss a safer way to transfer US information to Ukraine during his mid-April Kiev visit.
However, Jen Psaki, spokeswomen for the US department of state, said that there was nothing to read into Brennan’s visit to Kiev, and that the head of the CIA did not offer support to the coup-appointed government in the country to help them conduct tactical operations within Ukraine.
Following the CIA chief’s Kiev visit the toppled Ukraine president Viktor Yanukovich linked the CIA chief’s appearance in Kiev to the first stage of the new government’s crackdown in Slavyansk.
Brennan “sanctioned the use of weapons and provoked bloodshed,” Yanukovich said.
Bild’s reports comes as US president Barack Obama rules out that Washington will interfere in the situation in Ukraine.
“You’ve also seen suggestions or implications that somehow Americans are responsible for meddling inside Ukraine. I have to say that our only interest is for Ukraine to be able to make its own decisions. And the last thing we want is disorder and chaos in the center of Europe,” he said speaking in the White House after meeting the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, just two days ago.
