There has been minimal coverage of the international "business" connections during the interference by the US and Russia in Ukraine, from 2014-2019. What has euphemistically been referred to as "partisanship" on the part of the Obama appointed ambassador to Ukraine, Ms. Marie Yovanovitch who served in Ukraine from 2016 until recently, would-under any other administration-be fired immediately. Disagreeing in public and denigrating your boss, especially in an international arena-such as in foreign embassies-when your boss is essentially the President of the United States-should not be tolerated in the diplomatic sector.
Evidently Ms. Marie Yovanovitch after decades with the State Department, burnt out in diplomatic skills 101. She was "called out" by both Ukrainian nationals who worked with her and by Americans who were involved in investigating for the "impeachment inquiry".
Let's have a look at what is listed as "official" (not wikis) for Marie Yovanovitch's background and bio.
Marie Yovanovitch has Serbian, Russian and German roots. Her paternal grandfather was a Serb who, at the end of WWI lived in the Russian city of Chita. Right after the birth of his son, Marie's father, he returned to Serbia and from there emigrated to Canada. Marie’s maternal grandfather was anti-Bolshevik. He fled from Russia to Germany, which is where his daughter Nadya (Marie's mother) grew up. Marie was born in Canada in 1958. Marie speaks and understands Russian fluently. She grew up in a household where Russian was the main language. it is not stated on any official bio that she speaks any other Eastern european language such as Serbian, but French is listed. Their family was not Jewish as some sites would suggest. Her parents moved their family to Connecticut, USA when Marie was very young. She attended Kent, a private high school.
Marie attended both Princeton University and the Pushkin Institute (Russia). She furthered her studies in the Russian language. She graduated from Princeton in 1980. Ms. Yovanovitch started her career in the foreign service in 1986. Marie was posted to a number of countries in various capacities then her star rose in 1998 when she served as the Deputy Director of the Russian Desk.
From 2001 to 2004, Marie or "Masha", worked as the U.S. deputy chief of mission in Ukraine, as second-in-charge to Herbst, before being named ambassador to Kyrgyzstan in 2005, then Ambassador to Armenia from 2008-2011. I had a few direct short meetings with Ms. Yovanovitch during the time I served in a DOS sponsored program with CIED as an invited faculty member for the Yerevan State Medical University (Heratsi) and the Yerevan Institute for Medical Genetics, as well performing other cultural support activities such as talks at the American Council and acting as a panelist for US exchange programs, the Salzburg Medical conference series and for IREX, from 2008-2010.
I was given "strong advice" from Armenian nationals who were working and had worked for years for the US embassy, and who served as my support while I was there...to slant all my American council programs leading up to the election and after the 2008 election...toward Barack Obama. My role was a minor one in the scope of DOS programs. Mine was not a political purview but throughout my two years there I did receive directives which I felt were political in nature, not the least of which was "do not mention the 'genocide' of the Armenian people".
Moreover I received a list of sites in 2008, which were "restricted" from online viewing. I found that curious and imagined these would be salacious/porn/criminal sites but when I researched them on my own computer, I found them to be sites which were political/libertarian and generally ones which offered different points of view than corporate news. I felt this was controlling for no other reason than to sway us all toward the democratic candidates and "ways of thinking". My next posting was to Siberia, Russia in 2011-2012 the last years of Hillary Clinton's term as Secretary of State. What happened there with her push for shoving "millennium goals" down our sponsors throats, will take up a few chapters in my next book.
Marie Yovanovitch was an avid Hilary supporter as was my immediate foreign service supervisor in both Armenia and Russia. There was no hiding their political views, partisanship and their prejudices. To express my true values and political beliefs anywhere around them and their staff would have been career "suicide". There was no diversity of opinion tolerated for decades in the US DOS.
Moreover, in Armenia and Ukraine (I was there with Peace Corps Response in 2015) the US embassy pushed George Soros Open Society Programs. George Soros funded the Salzburg Medical seminars (for example) and "civil society" capacity building programs.
When, in both Armenia and Ukraine, a number of organizations and officials wanted/needed to investigate Open Society and George Soros's actions in their countries-the US officials (ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at the time) pressured the legal entities involved to "stand down" and "drop the cases". thehill.com/opinion/campaign/435906-us-embassy-pressed-ukraine-to-drop-probe-of-george-soros-group-during-2016 Speaking of "interference" and "Quid pro or No $Dough"...that tool was leveraged mightily under Barack Obama's Secretaries of State (Clinton and Kerry) and their servers in country-Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Ambassador Michael McFaul (Russia) Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt and the foul mouthed Victoria Nuland-all three were ambitious career foreign service officers who patted each others...backs and pushed hard for coups. Did you know of the fiasco of the "white revolution" tried in line with the other "color revolutions"? What a backfire on the "re-set" button Hillary Clinton conjured.
Ambassador Nuland served as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs from September 2013 until January 2017 under President Obama and Secretary Kerry. She was State Department Spokesperson during Secretary Hillary Clinton’s tenure, and U.S. Ambassador to NATO during President George W. Bush’s second term. Ms Nuland served as Special Envoy and chief negotiator on the Treaty on Conventional Arms Control in Europe from 2010-2011, and as Deputy National Security Advisor to Vice President Cheney from 2003-2005. She was also a rising star-seemingly for both Republican and Democratic presidents-or as some astute observers would say...for the DeepState. www.vipr-bg.com/en/articles/coup-detat-in-the-ukraine/
"We know from the leaked, early 2014 telephone conversation between Victoria Nuland, (then assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs), and Geoffrey Pyatt, then U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, that then Vice President Biden played a role in “midwifing” the U.S.-backed overthrow of an elected Ukrainian government soon after that conversation. That’s the biggest crime in this story that isn’t being told. The illegal overthrow of a sovereign government."
Former CIA agent Ray McGovern on the conflict in Ukraine, stated: “It was a coup, sponsored by the West”. McGovern was in the inner circle.
Moreover the "prize" for this coup went to the offspring of then Vice President Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a good friend of Secretary of State John Kerry-given lucrative contract positions with Burisma Holdings and Viscoil/ NRG Gas companies and agricultural rights. thepatriotwatchdog.com/video-nancy-pelosis-son-caught-in-massive-ukraine-energy-scandal-trump-was-the-target/
American companies also benefited:
The investment banker Michael Cox said: “Ukraine and Eastern Europe are very promising markets for agricultural companies, DEERE, Monsanto and DuPont." In a secret "white paper" on goals for policy in Ukraine-the US was keen to have "access and management to fertile Ukrainian lands" but they had little concern for Ukrainian people and adamantly worked to "de-Russify" Ukraine in any way possible including starting a civil war...brother against brother. An active propaganda campaign against Russia, Putin and anything "Russian', including the Russian language; was launched in both Ukraine and the USA.
In 2016, Marie Yovanovitch returned to Ukraine after President Barack Obama nominated her to be the U.S. ambassador. It was common knowledge that Ambasador Yovanovitch supported both Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton for president. Marie as ambassador was appointed to be there during the final allocation of more than five billion dollars to "promote democracy" in Ukraine." It would be due diligence to follow on with forensic accounting on exactly where those funds went in terms of "promoting democracy...against Donald Trump".
“All the leading Ukrainian politicians in 2016 supported the Democrats. Absolutely all of them, with the exception of Tymoshenko. I think that neither Trump, nor the Republicans in general have forgotten this Ukrainian interference in the internal affairs of the U.S. Nor have they forgotten the scandal in regards to Manafort; nor all the insults hurled at Trump in the Kiev press. I have no idea how much interference there was on the part of Russia, but I do know that Ukrainian citizens participated in (American) internal politics, on the side of the Democrats. There is absolutely no doubt about that.” Statement by Ukrainian sociologist Evgeny Kopatko in 2018
“The embassy in Ukraine was a ‘Hillary Clinton for president’ office. And they were looking to dig up dirt on President Trump,” Giuliani said. “There was a lot more collusion with Ukraine than in Russia, where there doesn’t appear to be any. They were trying to bring Trump down.” So much for "non-partisan" Marie.
Hillary Clinton and Marie Yovanovitch were, and remain very close. Hillary came out to personally advocate for her against President Trump and his decision to "recall" ambassador Yovanovitch- on as many media platforms as would have her speak.
Although he passed away last year, before his earthly departure John McCain was a major player in Ukraine as well. For more details see my previous post: https://www.jopatti.com/blog/playing-with-fire-trying-to-split-christians-in-ukraine You will notice all the same names/players keep coming up within these circles gouging at eastern European countries...why is that? What are/were the real agendas other than the "buffer against nasty Russia" narrative....your thoughts?
This has been an eventful weekend in the United States of America. The US Marine Corps Birthday and Veteran's Day and the first time a United States President has opened a Veteran's Day parade-which was in New York city. This week I close with the US Army chorus singing and playing "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkkIUsV36f4
I also include the Mormon choir singing the same majestic song and mourn the terrible and violent death of some of their community. I believe many will also be heartened and awe inspired by the bravery and resourcefulness of the children who hid, who walked miles for help and who survived. What battles they have endured.
May the murderers be found and brought to swift justice and may the truth be revealed in all these cases: www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSiVjlknuSw
Until next week,
