- Crisis in the Ukraine: USAID Support for Destabilization of Russia!
by Wayne Madsen, Libya 360° , via http://www.infowars.com/
Editor’s note: Now that security forces in Ukraine are allegedly shooting protestors, corporate media coverage in the United States will focus on the violence and calls for President Viktor Yanukovich to step aside. The situation in Ukraine, however, is not entirely as the corporate media would have us believe. Wayne Madsen provides a look at the effort by the United States to destabilize not only Ukraine, but Russia. The crisis in the Ukraine provides an additional headache for Russia as it deals with terrorist threats on the eve of its hosting the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
One “themed revolution”, for which the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and its allied operatives of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the George Soros Open Society Institute have become so infamous, went virtually unnoticed in the English language Western media.
In 2010, anti-Russian government provocateurs, financed by Western non-governmental organizations (NGOs), staged a number of protests featuring plastic blue buckets. The buckets were meant to symbolize the portable flashing blue lights, known in Russian as migalki, used atop many vehicles for Russian VIPs, including government officials and private businessmen.
The themed blue bucket protests were directly linked to the “pro-democracy” activities of USAID in Russia. American-backed provocateurs began placing blue buckets on top of their cars to mock the use of blue lights by officials. In response, three parties represented in the State Duma, United Russia, A Just Russia, and the Liberal Democratic Party, proposed a bill to crack down on the use of the blue buckets by protesters who were intent on causing traffic problems, sometimes resulting in vehicle accidents.
U.S. NGO support for the “blue bucket” revolution preceded by a year the nomination by President Barack Obama of anti-Russian activist Michael McFaul as the U.S. ambassador to Russia. McFaul began his tenure in Moscow by opening up the U.S. embassy to all sorts of anti-Russian political activists, provocateurs, and troublemakers.
These political provocateurs, which include People’s Freedom Party leader political blogger Aleksey Navalny, “Left Front” Sergey Udaltsov, chess celebrity Garry Kasparov, Russian “cover girl” Ksenia Sobchak, “Solidarity” co-leader Ilya Yashin, Boris Nemtsov, neo-fascist National Bolshevik Party leader Eduard Limonov, Yabloko Party leader Sergey Mitrokhin, and Lev Ponomarev were all well-schooled in the use of various devices and contrivances to gain media attention for their political causes and protests.
Themed street protests were used by Gene-Sharp-trained activists in a number of CIA- and Soros-advanced political operations. The first such group to successfully oust a government was OTPOR, which led protests that ejected Slobodan Milosevic as president of Serbia. Other groups backed by U.S.-trained activists included Kmara in Georgia, Pora in Ukraine, KelKel in Kyrgyzstan, and Zubr in Belarus.
The art of using symbols such as the clenched fist and devices like blue buckets was developed by civil disobedience “guru” Gene Sharp of the Albert Einstein Institution and Harvard. Sharp’s work on “non-violent” actions to bring down governments was adopted by the CIA to foment rebellions in countries in the post-Soviet and Soviet bloc space. Sharp denies his work is connected to U.S. intelligence, however, it has been funded by the largest funding pools used by the CIA for contract work by academia. Sharp has been directly funded by the RAND Corporation, Ford Foundation, and NED. His work also received funding from the International Republican Institute, an arm of the U.S. Republican Party.
- Who is the brains behind this? Zbig Brzezinski (Committee of 300)!
The Grand Chessboard is a strategic plan to secure US world domination by encircling Russia/China. For this purpose, the domination of central Asia is a must. The plan was launched by Zbigniew Brzezinski, adviser to 5 US Presidents, Obama´s mentor – or rather his (Ras)putin. The following is the Russian view of that project – which preoccupies Russia much – and which has been seen as a possible forerunner of WWWIII – possibly already planned.
What worries Russia now is the British plan to make the Middle East an “Arc of Crisis” , presented by the Jewish historian, Bernard Lewis, to the the Bilderberg meeting in 1979, and accepted there. The plan was to start a chain reaction in the Middle East to oust the Shah of Iran (by means of the Muslim Brotherhood); the riots were then to swap onto the Soviet Union. The forces behind this plan, which is far from dead, are still the same: the Bilderbergers, the Club of Rome, Brzezinski and the CIA, and here.
Zbigniew Brzezinski and the CFR Put War Plans In a 1997 Book – It Is “A Blueprint for World Dictatorship,” Says a Former German Defense and NATO Official Who Warned of Global Domination in 1984.

“THE GRAND CHESSBOARD – American Primacy And It’s Geostrategic Imperatives,” Zbigniew Brzezinski, Basic Books, 1997.
These are the very first words in the book: “Ever since the continents started interacting politically, some five hundred years ago, Eurasia has been the center of world power.”- p. xiii. Eurasia is all of the territory east of Germany and Poland, stretching all the way through Russia and China to the Pacific Ocean. It includes the Middle East and most of the Indian subcontinent. The key to controlling Eurasia, says Brzezinski, is controlling the Central Asian Republics. And the key to controlling the Central Asian republics is Uzbekistan. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Uzbekistan was forcefully mentioned by President George W. Bush in his address to a joint session of Congress, just days after the attacks of September 11, as the very first place that the U.S. military would be deployed.
Brzezinski sets the tone for his strategy by describing Russia and China as the two most important countries – almost but not quite superpowers – whose interests that might threaten the U.S. in Central Asia. Of the two, Brzezinski considers Russia to be the more serious threat. Both nations border Central Asia. In a lesser context he describes the Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Iran and Kazakhstan as essential “lesser” nations that must be managed by the U.S. as buffers or counterweights to Russian and Chinese moves to control the oil, gas and minerals of the Central Asian Republics (Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan). ….
