Tymchuk is the portal news stations in Ukraine go to for official
information. On June 3 rd He
called the victim of
victim of the Lugansk Militia. This "intelligence" made the
rounds of every major publication. Look back at the White House

are growing weary of
these intimidation attempts. Putin has such a maniacal craving to
instill fear in others that we're beginning to suspect that his
complexes go far beyond harmless mental abnormalities.
one nice thing about Mr. Tymchuk is that he is predictable. You can
find a Russian soldier, tank, plane, or goat invading Ukraine on
every social media page, under every bush, and in every report Kiev
hands the US government thanks to his efforts. His no nonsense
Bandera-inspired venom spewing anti-Putin rhetoric has made him a
favorite of the intelligence services in Ukraine and a shoo-in for a
BBQ invite in Arizona.
And yet, US officials are trying to convince the world that " Washington knows best what is happening in Ukraine." The problem is trying to prove Russia's interference. They've come to the point where even the State Department refers to social networking posts rather than the U.S.'s vast media resources.
the April 21, 2014 briefing, one
question to Jen Psaki says
you're not -- are you saying that the United States Government,
with its great tradition of intelligence gathering and sources and so
on, is now dependent on publicly traded photographs on the internet
and Twitter and so on?
29 Psaki said: "Our intelligence community tells me that Russia's
intelligence and military intelligence services and special operators
are playing an active role in destabilizing eastern Ukraine with
personnel, weapons, money, operational planning and coordination.
The Ukrainians have intercepted and publicized command-and-control
conversations from known Russian agents with their separatist clients
So despite the breathless headline, apparently Jen's boss, Kerry, was referring, as he did in public comments the night before, to information the Ukrainians gathered themselves.
QUESTION: Oh, so when he says intel has recorded, he was not talking about U.S. intel, he was talking about Ukrainian intel?
6, 2014 MS. PSAKI: Well, I think I was pretty clear in answering
Matt's question that I don't have any independent information on
the origin of the YouTube video, but obviously, they were the first
ones to post on Twitter about it, which is an indication. But again,
I don't know -- I don't have any independent --
Tymchuk's rants with Psaki's assertions and the pattern syncs. Yet
even a pro-Bandera outlet like the Kiev Post take precautions that
John Kerry, Barack Obama, and the EU did not. They put a disclaimer
on everything Tymchuk writes.
Ukraine Youthful Exuberance or Nazi Youth?
as promised, we come to Sviatoslav Yurash, a student at the
University of Warsaw International Relations Program, whose true love
was English. At the beginning of January, then 17 year old Sviatoslav
walked onto the Maidan wanting to help. He managed to get an audience
with the then three "opposition leaders" Klitschko, Tyhanybok,
and Yatsenyuk and asked if he could run the international PR for
Maidan. They agreed. Sviatoslav was immediately set up with an
office, a staff, and went to work. Soon he became the Spokesperson
Maidan and "the" international media contact. The international

through him for interviews, stories, and translations. According to a
60 Minutes news feature, Yurash took charge of the entire
media operation for
the then opposition leaders, and ABC called him one of the leaders.
Clearly, the media has been taken for a ride by an eighteen year-old!
pro-Bandera youth has almost single-handedly worked to make Ultra
Nationalist propaganda a Face Book "like" affair, his goal

genocidal history .)
His office is located three floors down from Pravy Sektor, who don't
