Readers likely recall that despite the fact that the U.S. and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) knew months in advance that Russia was building up its forces around Ukraine in preparation for an invasion, Washington and Brussels appeared to do little to shore up Kyiv's defenses. Once Russia sent its forces into Ukraine on Feb. 24, most outside observers figured that the Red Army would make quick work of the lesser-armed and overmatched Ukrainian army.
But shortly thereafter, out of nowhere, the Biden regime moved quickly to provide Ukraine with lethal aid even after the same people criticized then-President Donald Trump for doing the same thing during his administration. This, of course, after tens of millions of Americans learned that the Obama regime meddled in Ukraine in 2014, causing a coup, and Hunter Biden scored lucrative business deals in the corrupt country, much of which he was forced to share with his dad.
And since then, the globalists in Congress have gotten on board as well, approving billions in weapons aid and money to what was one of the most corrupt countries in all of Europe.
Now we learn that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been heavily involved in Ukraine as well, likely running operations there like the Cold War never ended.
The New York Times has now confirmed what many have suspected for some time.
"As Russian troops press ahead with a grinding campaign to seize eastern Ukraine, the nation’s ability to resist the onslaught depends more than ever on help from the United States and its allies — including a stealthy network of commandos and spies rushing to provide weapons, intelligence and training, according to U.S. and European officials," the Times reported.
"Much of this work happens outside Ukraine, at bases in Germany, France and Britain, for example. But even as the Biden administration has declared it will not deploy American troops to Ukraine, some CIA personnel have continued to operate in the country secretly, mostly in the capital, Kyiv, directing much of the vast amounts of intelligence the United States is sharing with Ukrainian forces, according to current and former officials."
Meanwhile, "a few dozen commandos" from other NATO member countries such as Britain, Canada, France, and Lithuania have also deployed inside Ukraine, though the U.S. reportedly withdrew some 150 military instructors ahead of Russia's February invasion (a further indication that the U.S. and NATO were aware of what was coming). That said, "commandos from these allies either remained or have gone in and out of the country since then, training and advising Ukrainian troops and providing an on-the-ground conduit for weapons and other aid," the Times added, quoting three unnamed U.S. officials.
The paper said there are not many more details regarding what the CIA personnel and associated commandos are actually doing. However, the fact that they are in Ukraine at all appears to suggest that the effort to provide lethal assistance to Ukraine was not only happening secretly (and without the approval of American voters), but is much bigger in scope than previously known.
Also, having any U.S. military and intelligence personnel in the country entails huge risks, especially if any of them are captured.
Army Secretary Christine E. Wormuth offered a few details regarding the operation in May at a national security event held by the left-leaning Atlantic Council. She noted that the special ops cell was providing assistance in managing the flow of weapons and other gear into Ukraine.
"As the Ukrainians try to move that around and evade the Russians potentially trying to target convoys, you know, we are trying to be able to help coordinate moving all of those different sort of shipments," she said.
The globalists running Biden's regime are doing all they can to pick a fight with nuclear-armed Russia. Americans did not vote for this.
