Editor’s Note: We have CIA and FBI paramilitary operatives heavily involved in aiding a broken, weak and incompetent Kiev government with little to no experience in regime change or any productive covert revolutionary military activities.
The Ukrainian armed forces are in complete disarray, weak, poor military equipment/ leadership and not sure if they should carry out orders to shoot and kill Russian separatists or join them. That is why you bring in foreign mercenaries to lead military operations in Eastern Ukraine, they are paid to shoot and kill anything that moves.
400 U.S. mercenaries are fighting in eastern Ukraine against the separatists. The newspaper “Bild am Sonntag” and references to intelligence information. The fighters come from military service contractor Academi, formerly known as Blackwater.
It was a clearly worded denial. “Irresponsible bloggers and online reporters” have spread “rumors” of mercenaries in use, according to employees of the company Academi in the Ukraine. This is false and nothing more than a “sensationalist attempt to create hysteria.” Thus spoke the U.S. military service contractor, formerly know as Blackwater , on March 17 on its website .
The Russian state news agency “Ria Novosti” of course reported on 7 April :: Blackwater fighters operating in eastern Ukraine – and in wearing the uniform of Ukrainian special police “Sokol”. An independent confirmation of the fact was not confirmed.
A newspaper report suggests now that perhaps the rumours are ture and there might be something: According to “Bild am Sonntag”, the Ukrainian security forces are supported by Academi 400 elite soldiers. They have led operations against pro-Russian rebel around the city of Slowjansk. On April 29, German Intelligence Service (BND) informed Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government about the mercenaries’ participation in the operation, the paper said, RIA Novosti reported. It is not clear who commands the private military contractors and pays for their services.
