Russia Says U.S. Mercenaries in Eastern Ukraine

Via u_96

Russian media reports today the American security firm Greystone has teamed up with Right Sector fascists in a bid to prevent eastern Ukraine from joining the Russian Federation.

Greystone is a former Xe (aka Blackwater) affiliate with offices in Virginia and the United Arab Emirates. Employing “personnel from the best militaries throughout the world,” the company offers “large scale stability operations requiring large numbers of people to assist in securing a region.”

“We are particularly concerned that the operation involves some 150 American mercenaries from a private company Greystone Ltd., dressed in the uniform of the [Ukrainian] special task police unit Sokol,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “We urge [Kyiv] to immediately stop all military preparations which could lead to a civil war.”

  1. Sorry, but to call what happened in Kiev as the work of 'fascists' is disingenuous. I personally know some people who were out in the Maidan and every single one confirms a huge cross-section of the public being out in force, far from the Russian claim of it being a fascist takeover of Ukrainian government. What Russia is now doing is bringing people in to stir up trouble in the Eastern cities to justify further invasion and annexation of Ukrainian territory. Its important to keep the starting premises correct before making further claims. As Khodorkovsky said in a speech he gave in Kiev, there may well be fascists in the Maidan, but certainly no more than there are in Moscow. Don't believe the hype - true fascism is to be found in the Kremlin. Russia has found it very easy to slip back to the Soviet methods when there are resources to be grabbed and people to be re-conquered.

    1. May be, but Obama backed them and regardless of what one think of the ousted President, he was elected legally and ousted illegally. Putin has nothing over Obama, in fact, I would trade Obama for him in a minute.
