On Monday afternoon White House spokesman Jay Carney confirmed that CIA Director John Brennan visited Ukrainian capital Kiev over the weekend and met with high-ranked Ukrainian officials.

Previously, deposed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich accused Brennan of ordering a crackdown on pro-Russian activists in the east of the country.

The CIA had already dismissed these accusations as "completely false", but did not disclose whether its chief had actually been to Kiev - until now.

White House confirms CIA director visited Ukraine over weekend

So...

What possible business could the American CIA director have in Kiev when he met "high-ranking officials"?

The Russians and the elected Ukrainian government seem to believe that the visit from the CIA director coincides less than coincidently with the announcement of massive "anti-terrorism" operations in eastern Ukraine- also coincidentally where countless rallies against the new Kiev regime has resulted in a separatist movement that seeks independence.

It sounds like a stretch.

Most people know the CIA is looking at the situation between Ukraine and Russia.

If the CIA is stoking the fire it is up for debate. You have provided no proof.

Although I believe the CIA is involved in quite a bit to include resistance going on in Russia...its pretty normal for many agencies to observe each other during times of crisis for education sake.

Did you know Delta Force was present during the raid in Waco, Texas? They were just observing though.

As it seems that the Russians are as good at hacking communication lines as the NSA(the Nuland call) The face to face meeting must have been to give the directions on what to do .I mean like they (Ukraine) are a Washington puppet now ....peace

Re-read the source if you have not bothered to read it:

"On Monday afternoon White House spokesman Jay Carney confirmed that CIA Director John Brennan visited Ukrainian capital Kiev over the weekend and met with high-ranked Ukrainian officials."

Maybe he just went there for vacation and happened to bump into the leadership in Kiev?

The Voice of Russia, April 14 2014 - US journalist says CIA Director's visit to Ukraine perfectly logical

Mapp told RIA Novosti in a commentary that the situation around Ukraine was an extremely important and ticklish chess game, played by all the countries involved.

According to him, the US is trying to divert Russia's attention from Syria, while Moscow may show one and all, above all the BRICS countries, that it is capable of damaging the US economy and currency in this standoff with the West. For these reasons, the way the chess game in question ends will have an enormous importance and consequences, it is therefore quite logical that the CIA Director decided to personally visit Ukraine.

Mapp says he believes that Brennan did pay a visit to Kiev, although he admits he has no direct evidence of that from his sources. According to Mapp, small wonder if the CIA was not only involved in, but also organized and controlled the protests from the outset.

According to the journalist, the Ukrainian scenario of the past few months is very much like any other CIA-planned scenario. He says the CIA has quite an experience in staging state coups, including in Ukraine, citing the Orange Revolution of 2004 as evidence.

Business Insider, April 14 2014 - The US Is Considering Arming Ukrainian Forces

Kinda like how they have been arming Islamofascists in Libya and Syria. Lately they just handed over TOW missiles to terrorists in Syria.

Military truck captured near Mariupol (Donetsk). Drivers had no documentation. Truck contained RPGs, rifles, ammo, grenades, etc.

Five more western mercenaries captured, claimed separatist forces.

American (possibly CIA) Predator drone filmed on landing route, claimed to be in Dnipropetrovsk

One only has to put the pieces together...

April 14, 2014 "ICH" - "WSWS" - Seven weeks after the right-wing coup in Ukraine, evidence is mounting that the Western-backed opposition at the time was responsible for the lethal shootings in Independence Square on February 20. This was suggested by a report on the German public television programme “Monitor” last Thursday evening, and which is available online (in German).

“According to research it appears unlikely that the shots on demonstrators came exclusively from the side of the old regime,” stated a press release made available prior to the program. In its report, “Monitor” raised the question, “Did radical oppositionists end up shooting in order to produce chaos and place the blame on Yanukovitch?” The presented videos, interviews and sound recordings suggest precisely this!

“Monitor” presented an extract of radio traffic from alleged sharp-shooters of the Yanukovitch regime, who were positioned on various rooftops in the centre of Kiev on February 20. The discussion was picked up by a Ukrainian radio amateur. One of the snipers can be heard asking his colleagues, “Hey guys, they are over there, on the right of the hotel Ukrayina. Who is shooting? Our people don’t shoot at unarmed civilians.” Then he calls, “Guys, there is a sniper who is aiming at me. Who is he aiming at from the corner? Look out.” A short time later someone else says, “Someone shot him. But not us. Are there more snipers over there? And who are they?” www.informationclearinghouse.info...

"The Next 24 Hours Are Crucial For Ukraine
By The Saker
The following cities have seen uprisings taking place over the week-end: Kharkov, Slaviansk, Krasnyi Liman, Kramatorsk, Lugansk, Enakievo, Gorlovka, Donetsk, Khartsyzk, Ilovaisk, Mariupol. To get a feel for the spread, check out this map:"
www.informationclearinghouse.info...

"The second big development is the clear increase in the quality of the forces opposing the takeover of the eastern Ukraine by the revolutionary regime in Kiev. Up until Friday, most of the demonstrators were civilians, "armed" with bars, stones, Molotov cocktails, bats, etc. and, frankly, their barricades looked pretty lame. Over the week end some better equipped forces have appeared, this could be due to the seizure of weapons caches from the SBU, but my guess is that there is a traffic going on between Crimea and the eastern Ukraine. Some Crimeans have said so openly. Furthermore, it is very likely that there are also volunteers from Russia, probably with military backgrounds, helping out the locals. The barricades look far better built now, they are over 6 feet high and they seem much better protected.

The Kiev regime and the USA have accused Russia of having GRU agents involved. Well, I am pretty sure that they are there - they would be stupid not to - but to present the spreading insurrection as the result of the Kremlin's covert operations is rather silly. While I would expect the SVR and GRU to try to help, they are going to try to stay several steps removed in order to avoid a potential political scandal for Russia. But could the GRU be providing equipment for Russian volunteers in eastern Ukraine. Yes, that is definitely possible, thought not necessarily the most likely explanations. The fact is that nobody really knows."

Well it is obvious why they are there.
They don't want to lose control of the eastern part of Ukraine.
The recent uprisings seem to have alerted many agencies.
I doubt that the CIA is the only foreign agency there.
It seems pretty intense though that the CIA Director himself is in Kiew.
Putin must have something to do with the recent uprisings...

It has been known for a long time that they shoot their own people and Russia has been calling for an investigation from day one but this is only now starting to hit the main stream propagnda outlets.

Could it be that the potato was too hot and now they are planing on droping it (the Ukraine) and this is why this is only just comeing to light ?

I think that the Ukraine will be split up and the only question is where will the lines be drawn.

We get another Greese, want it or not and Russia gets a buffer zone against US lead agression in the region.

Can we now please get on and blow the gas lines (yes sure its was russia that done it, found Putins passport in the fire) so that the USA gets to save our soles in Europe by offering to sell us gas at treble the going rate so we then get an excuse to frack europe to death in a few years time.

I like your little rant / sarc at the end .Ok so we knew about the sniper's being part of the coup very early on in the story or at least suspected it dew to the phone call hack .At that time we had listened to the Nuland f_ _ _k EU phone call and new it was Washington that was behind it . Now it's a cold potato that no one wants to eat and may have to be thrown out lol I am not so sure that the US will be fracking anytime soon over there .I read a study somewhere that it would take a min. of two years to be able to replace Russian gas so unless Europe and Ukraine want to just use extra sweaters for the next two winters ,it aint gonna happen .....peace

Disturbing how involved top American leaders are with Ukraine, as if helping Kiev was a greater priority than helping their own country. I have no idea why people still believe these clowns.

I think that Russia is a threat to US ability to be # 1 ..Without the ability to place your military bases where ever you want there is a problem ..Another thing that I think is playing in this is the monetary system .It would seem that the USD is going to crash because of all the fraud .Their plan to have the world currency is like the ability to launch war at will .With Russia being close to China and the BRICS nations working out the details to dealing in their own currencies that would be a big no no for the US .If US can some how cause the flow of gas to Europe they will weakin the Russian Economy ....big players ,playing for big bucks ...
