Pacific Americans in Ukraine

Hidden forms of US military involvement in the Ukrainian crisis have a far greater scale and danger for Russia than officially recognized minor episodes


Pacific Americans in Ukraine


At the same time, the attention of a respectable public interested in Ukrainian affairs is focused on the exaggerated stories With the delivery to Ukraine of an extremely limited party of a rather dubious combat value of the Javelin anti-tank complexes, much more significant and promising events are taking place in the dark depths of the Ukraine-US “partnership” relations.

This is reported, in particular, by the informed French newsletter "Intelligence online" in the material "Le Pentagone resserre ses liens avec la defense ukranienne" ("The Pentagon is strengthening its ties with the Ukrainian defense"). The publication draws attention to the fact that the United States is actively flooding the military-industrial complex of Ukraine with its advisors. Moreover, in some cases, these people occupy key positions in the Ukrainian military-industrial structures. Here is one of the most prominent examples:

“Former director of the Advanced Defense Research Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense in 2001-2009 Anthony Tether in early February 2018 was appointed to the supervisory board of the Ukrainian state concern Ukroboronprom - the core of the Ukrainian defense industry. Since August Tefer has been an adviser on the strategy of this concern since 2016, and he should launch a project to create a “Ukrainian DARPA” - the so-called Ukrainian Defense Research Agency. This organization will have separate funding allocated by the President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko and the Government of Ukraine, and this agency will be responsible for supporting long-term R & D.»Https://www.intelligenceonline.fr/grands-contrats/2018/02/14/le-pentagone-resserre-ses-liens-avec-la-defense-ukrainienne,108294096-art

In this case, it is striking that no one has been appointed to a leading position in the Kiev defense concern, but the former head of one of the most secret Pentagon agencies who owns a large amount of knowledge of the highest level of confidentiality. The fact that such an informed person was sent to Ukraine, with its extremely high political risks and espionage threats, in itself speaks volumes. And above all, that from the point of view of the Americans, its mission is worth it.

We can judge about exactly what it is based on the previous specialization of Anthony Tefer, who was involved in the organization of the development of advanced weapons systems in the United States. His goal in Kiev can be twofold. On the one hand, it is a purely reconnaissance and intellectual and heuristic potential of one of the parts of the former Soviet military-industrial complex consisting in the most in-depth assessment. In order to extrapolate the data obtained to the defense industry of the Russian Federation and thus obtain indirect data on its style of innovation and potential opportunities. Americans understand perfectly well that defense specialists in Russia and Ukraine are people of the same school and that which is characteristic of some is also characteristic of others.

However, one cannot exclude the other, more practical purpose of this mission of the former head of DARPA. It is no secret that Washington is extremely interested in strengthening the military potential of today's Ukraine, in which they see the sworn enemy of the rest of Russia and the main brake on the way of strengthening the historical East Slavic enemy of the West.

At the same time, however, in the United States they are afraid, for obvious reasons, to lift all restrictions in the field of military cooperation with the very problematic Kiev regime and fully take its side in a possible conflict with the Russian Federation. In particular, in the form of massive and fully open supplies of American weapons. That is why even very mediocre anti-tank grenade launchers Ukraine receives homeopathic doses from the USA - several dozen units.

Given this fact, as well as the vast experience gained by the United States in the field of behind-the-scenes military-political and military-technical partnership, it is quite possible to assume that the saturation of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex with American specialists, including those of higher qualification, may be related to the plans of strengthening the military potential of Ukraine. Which will be provided, mainly, due to imitation of independent Ukrainian efforts as a cover for large-scale transfer to the Kiev regime of the American military technologies and the corresponding equipment.

In order, as far as setting up their production in Ukraine, to be able to maintain the illusion that new types of weapons are, entirely and completely, the result of the work of local scientific-design and production personnel.
One example of such an indirect interaction is supposedly the entirely independent development by Kiev of the operational-tactical missile complex “Thunder-2”, which Saudi Arabia suddenly needed so much that it even fully paid for its development. Meanwhile, the secret of Polichinel is that the Saudi monarchy is one of the most loyal geopolitical vassals of the United States and it is not the first to fulfill the most delicate tasks of its strategic "ally".

It is difficult to say which “Ukrainian” developments will be further initiated by overseas advisers. But it is quite obvious that, taking into account the overall military-technical backwardness of the current “Ukrainian army,” such efforts will be focused primarily on the development of high-precision systems weapons, including cruise missiles and long-range ballistic missiles, reconnaissance, control and communications systems, as well as cybernetic means of warfare.

By the way, it is Ukraine, which is actually in a state of undeclared war with the Russian Federation, considered in the USA as the most convenient testing ground for practical tests and unlimited combat use of all types of modern electronic weapons and for organizing direct cyber attacks on the territory of the Russian Federation. Which, in fact, has already begun.

“Under the auspices of Congress, the United States wants to infuse several hundred million dollars into Ukrainian security structures in 2018 using several financial aid packages spread across various articles (Department of Defense Appropriation Act 2018, Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, State Foreign Operations and related programs, and National Defense Authorization Act 2018). In addition to military equipment and training of Ukrainian specialists, American resources are focused on strengthening the country's cybersecurity capabilities. Ukraine has become a real laboratory in terms of maintaining cyberwar between Russia and Western countries. ”


To solve very specific organizational tasks of this kind, the needy American managers from the Advanced Defense Research Agency of the US Department of Defense and other specific structures could have been needed in Kiev. And it seems that even the rather high risk to which these specialists are exposed, being in the zone of the military-political crisis, did not seem excessive to the Pentagon against the background of the importance of the tasks that were set for them.

From which it follows a logical conclusion that the American stake on the further build-up of the military power of Ukraine, sharpened by them for a long confrontation with Russia, is much more solid and ominous than it may seem, if we take into account only the almost anecdotal story with the notorious “Javelins ".

    Everything goes to the fact that UKRAINE is being prepared as a battering ram in the fight against RUSSIA ... smart people spoke about this even before the events on the Maidan ... the next step is the war until the last Ukrainian against our country on all fronts ...
    ideological ... informational ... political ...
    economic ... military, etc.
    In total, it is predictable if we do not do anything against this expansion ... the pan-and-panheads from Ukraine should die in the name of US democracy.

      “Under the auspices of the US Congress, in the 2018 year, they want to pour several hundred million dollars into Ukrainian security structures with the help of several financial assistance packages, spread over various articles (Department of Defense Appropriation Act 2018, Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, State Foreign Operations and related programs, and National Defense Authorization Act 2018).
      I give a translation of the names of the legislative laws indicated by the author from English. Namely:
      (2018 Ministry of Defense Appropriations Act, Ukrainian Security Assistance Initiative, state foreign operations and related programs, 2018 National Defense Authorization Act)

        The article is very, very correct!
        Americans in Ukraine for a long time - from 2013 of the year - have entrenched and continue to dig in all directions.
        It is enough to recall Biden in the chair of the President of Ukraine.

      (For pro100) Excuse me, where did you get this from? Did your grandfather, grandfather of the Ukrainian and my father fight during World War II ... Did they betray each other ??? Your ancestors did not fight, it seems. And in order to talk about Ukraine like that, one must live there, people should see, talk. I would say so, the people of Ukraine are our people (without banderlogs). And then ... wait and see wink

      Red sneakers again? Well, if you get to the bottom of corruption, it is possible that the evacuation will not be in time.
      American pro, okay. that his goal is to study the potential for the restoration of the defense industry and investment prospects.

    Ukraine is already openly occupied. No one is going to make her a member of the EU or NATO. It is made a shock bridgehead.

    Moreover, in some cases, these people occupy key posts in Ukrainian military-industrial structures.

    All military achievements of the USSR and many Russian States will receive unhindered.
    But in general:
    America will NEVER give up control of Ukraine, no matter how much it costs. FOR ITS COSTS FROM RESTORING THE GLOBAL STATUS OF RUSSIA MUCH ABOVE. And the restoration of Russia's global status will begin with the restoration of control over Ukraine. This is understandable both to Europe and the United States, which, despite the existence of their own contradictions, equally consider it the most important task to prevent the strengthening of Russia by restoring its influence in Ukraine and joining its territorial potential to the potential of Russia.

    With our stubborn "we are not them," we made such a cesspool near the gate! When will politicians work in the future, and not anyhow!
    They have been surviving since 2014, everyone has been babysitting, and now even the advances by Gazprom, the svidomy propagandists will give out to blind and deaf protoucars as an unfriendly gesture of Russia, and for this they will call us Slav brothers, no doubt! So we multiply their number ourselves with our indecision, myopia and sometimes mediocrity !!!

    So what? We have a building in Smolensk, on Shevchenko street. With a five-story building, the shape resembles a bolt. Such a glass bolt ... This building belongs to the organization, which is called something like the "Agency for the collection of public information" or something like that. The main founder of the CIA. USA. Yeah, that’s so simple. Most of our citizens work there, collect this very information. Maybe DARPA was noted there.
    For the first time I drew all this attention when I met an advertisement for the sale of this building. Then it was just built, more than 10 years ago. All this information was there - both the name and the main founder ... And the building was sold to the local employee for a million. Which reduced its value and tax from it at least once every twenty to thirty. The guys carefully published their entire operation in the press (even in the newspaper), apparently in order to have iron otmazy for the tax.
    Ukraine, of course it is. But maybe it’s worth a bit of fumbling at home? We also have enough for everyone here ...

      good Exactly. Only the koment of the “director of the Institute of Space Problems” and something else under Skolkovo regarding the military part of the GDP’s speech is a common example of the work of mice and rats at the Godep suction, not to mention the crying boy from Siberia who took the tragic death of German prisoners of war to heart, who just wanted peace and didn’t want to die.
      Those. our grandfathers at Stalingrad deprived a bright future of a dumb nemchuru.

      What are the secrets? They are interested in intelligence. They themselves remained very much at the bottom. Have you heard anything about serious projects implemented, for example, by Google? But Google is investing billions in "intellectual development"! And the results they have, in addition to the next "breakthrough programs", which are sold in the Apple Store and which allow you to calculate the pulse, do not have any.
      They need high-quality development, and who needs to do it? This DARPA ... not so long ago, it was announced that it made the military happy with a super-super-system to increase intelligence. Sure sure. Last year's Boomstarter record holder for attracting investment - a Moscow neurophysiologist raised money for dressings that stimulate areas of the brain to improve the absorption of information. I collected money instantly and ... No physiologist, no bandages. DARPA has developed, yeah.

    the same KhPP, got rid of Ukraine and that’s all, you don’t need to feed them, they threw everything to America. Like a joyful soul. But why write articles about some bridgeheads, a threat nearby, turning into a ram ... if they themselves created everything? Under the guise of victory.

    The question, of course, is interesting. Taking into account the information stated in the article, that the adversary is building a military facility in the Ochakovo district ... There is Pervomaisky Island in the Kinbursky Spit area, our OCHNAZ team stood there ... Doesn’t it work there, it closes the Dneprobug estuary ... Yes, and secrecy, the infrastructure remained ...

    Fortunetelling on coffee grounds, Americans in Ukraine because nature does not tolerate emptiness; a holy place is empty; there are no Chinese and the European Union in many economic projects involved;
