KHARKIV, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Several US agencies - the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice and the Department of State - have commissioned their specialists to Ukraine to help coordinate the activity of Ukrainian state structures on issues of security, law enforcement, interior affairs and international contacts, since the Ukrainian authorities are unable to do it themselves, a source in the Ukrainian Security Service said on Tuesday.
“Since Ukraine’s law enforcers have turned out to be unable to ensure intelligence information collection in southeastern regions of Ukraine, now the staff of the US defense attache in Ukraine is engaged in this activity using the diplomatic immunity status,” the source said.
“Since Ukraine’s regular army has demonstrated poor efficiency and is not reliable in respect of the new authorities, the Americans recommend the Ukrainian leaders, while staging a 'counter-terrorist operation', to use the army only to cordon off the outer boundaries of populated localities in Ukraine’s southeastern regions,” the source said.
Earlier, the White House press secretary, Jay Carney, confirmed that CIA Director John Brennan had made a brief visit to Kiev last weekend.
Meanwhile, Alexei Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, said Brennan’s visit only “proved that Ukraine’s current government is not independent and consults on everything with Washington.” “No wonder that part of the country does not recognize this government,” he said, adding that such contacts were another proof that “the United States was behind the change of regimes in Ukraine, having established a regime that is more beneficial for itself."
