American officer: I was offered three times to become the Minister of Defense of Ukraine


Information appeared in the Western press that high-ranking Ukrainian officials addressed foreign citizens with proposals to take up certain posts in the Cabinet of Ukraine. So, in the American edition of The Daily Beast published material that describes the proposal coming from (at that time) Secretary of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council Alexander Danilyuk to the officer of the American Security Council, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Windman.


The publication writes that Danilyuk at least three times suggested that the American officer think about the possibility of taking the post of head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense. Windman announced such conversations the day before at a regular hearing in the US Congress on the so-called “Ukrainian case.”

It should be noted that recently, American officials, representatives of special services and other government agencies in fact "drain" any information about conversations with Ukrainian officials and politicians. Windman is no exception.

From a statement by an American officer at congressional hearings:

I did not take these statements seriously, but he (Danilyuk) was persistent. I was offered at least three times to take the post of Minister of Defense of Ukraine.

This conversation between Danilyuk and Windman took place on the day when an American officer flew to Kiev for the inauguration ceremony of President Zelensky.

The Ukrainian media asked to comment on Mr. Danilyuk Vindman’s statements (Danilyuk is no longer the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council). The ex-official of Ukraine said that his words “were a joke,” adding that “in the end, we both just laughed.”

Recall that it is Windman in the United States who is the key "witness" in the so-called case of "Trump pressure on Zelensky during a telephone conversation." The Republicans call Windman the "registered figure of the Democratic Party."

It is important to note that the practice of appointing foreign citizens to ministerial positions is not new for Ukraine. In the government of Yatsenyuk, at one time many portfolios were handed out to individuals with American and other foreign passports.

        Not as it was in the Tale?

        "They went overseas to the Varangians, to Russia. Those Varangians were called Rus, as others are called Swedes, and others - Normans and Angles, and also other Goths - like these. They said the miracle, Slavs, Krivichi and all:" Our land "great and plentiful, but there is no order in it. Come to reign and rule us."

        Grandmother told me that a long time ago in the village there was such a ritual ---- they offered to eat, drink tea. I had to say --- already had lunch today. Then again they offered ---- it was necessary to say that everything is at home. Then it was necessary to persuade at least a piece, at least a little ..... that would not offend the owners. ..... Then, with great reluctance, one should agree to a little ....
        The American apparently somehow hesitantly refused, if 3 times offered

          Shah, he is not an ordinary American, but to present him as "the god of the chosen people" and that means he clearly feels what needs to be agreed upon and what not. The post of some minister in Ukraine, he clearly does not like, he seems to be marking in the Procurators

        This would be the next step, if Windman agreed.
        And then Danilyuk would tell everyone that the Minister of Defense is his man.
        Well, as Zelensky Trump said that the General Prosecutor is his man.

      Alexander Semenovich Windman was born in the USSR in 1975. Jew. In 1979 he was taken to live in the United States.
      He graduated from university. He joined the army and completed officer courses. Served in infantry. Passed courses rangers and paratroopers. He fought. Was injured. He served in the system of military attaches. The man is clearly intelligent, intelligent. Why not appoint a minister? For Ukraine, it would be the norm. Although, I think, I could not have done it - local specifics.

                    Perun Ferret- a troll, retyping materials not prepared by him, the so-called "manuals".
                    Even the words are erased. "Botox" is a confirmation of this. This purely Hoh-lak "drove", another 5 years ago.
                    I know that in a couple of days, you will come out here under another "nickname". Plus, you're not alone here. But that will not change anything. On this site, your "manuals" are deciphered in flight.

            Remezkov’s eldest son, Stepan, recently graduated from Valley Forge Militar College in Pennsylvania ... The deputy’s son studied under the program for US Army officers (!!!).

            This "college" does not graduate from the US Armed Forces! It’s just a high school + high school with a military-like type of training. That is, the "cadets" wear a military-style uniform, they are really taught and drilled (and not as it is accepted "for the people" - do shaw hosh). In general, this is the closest analogue of the Soviet-Russian Suvorov schools. Only there is still a semi-university "college" course.
            In general - a school for the future elite.

      So much for the price of the Ukrainian general. Here I occasionally communicate with the American lieutenant colonel, the guy is literate and knows Russian well, was a battalion commander. Listening to the statements of Ukrainian generals, I see that the battalion’s training and intelligence are higher than the noise-general’s.

    Personally, I’m already on the drum, which regular donkey in Ukraine will row a vablo at a post. If they get it, I’ll just collect the monkeys and return home to Siberia. There may be enough problems, but the air is dear.

    In every joke there is a fraction of a joke ... It seems that there is one plus, he would steal less. Although, as practice shows, the "Varangians" - heads of Ukrainian enterprises from the opening opportunities and temptations, the roof goes very quickly, they begin to steal even more and quickly molt with impunity and stolen.

        This is it in vain. A small example: Natulka Yaresko, was the head of the economic department at that time of the US Embassy in / in Ukraine. She became the Minister of Finance of Ukraine and almost a billionaire, owner of a heap of real estate and co-founder of a bunch of companies.

    I did not take these statements seriously, but he (Danilyuk) was persistent. I was offered at least three times to take the post of Minister of Defense of Ukraine.
    This conversation between Danilyuk and Windman took place on the day when an American officer flew to Kiev for the inauguration ceremony of President Zelensky
    Well, if the "svoi" consider the American lieutenant colonel higher than the Ukrainian "three-star generals", then the state of the highest command leaves much to be desired. But the main thing was found in the states of "their" Ukrainian Windman, this is a significant indicator.

    Danilyuk at least three times suggested that the American officer think about the possibility of taking the post of head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense.

    And the American officer figured out from whom, in which case he would have to defend himself and with what forces, and said: ... (then follows untranslatable American folklore).

    It's simple.
    As always, looking for freebies!
    Take a minister from America and immediately the Americans will rush to restore order from them, clean up the Donbass and take away the Crimea from Russia.
    And to a chubby chuvachka in an embroidered shirt and trousers they’ll bring it all on a little platter with a blue border, and they will definitely pay extra money!))

      Not at all. It was a combat officer who fought, was wounded.
      Well, what is the title, so for 404 just right.
      Although a master sergeant would have been enough for them.
