Former Ukrainian Intelligence Officer’s Explosive Revelations of Neo-Nazis in Kiev Regime
March 28, 2019 (EIRNS)—On March 25, a former officer of the Ukrainian security service, the SBU, by the name of Vasily Prozorov, held a potentially explosive press conference in Moscow exposing not only the spread of Nazi ideology throughout the Ukrainian armed forces, but also on secret prisons run by the Azov Battalion in the Mariupol region, and the Kiev regime’s role in the July 2014 downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 over the Donbas region. Aside from TASS, the only extensive coverage of Prozorov’s remarks, so far, has been in Mintpress News, which report concludes that there is no reason at all to doubt anything that Prozorov said because it’s all coherent with publicly available evidence.
Prozoro—who stressed that after working for the SBU from 1999 until 2018 is seeking asylum in Russia, but has not defected—reported that soon after the February 2014 coup in Kiev, the new regime had begun planning combat operations in the Donbas region even before fighting broke out, and that the government had requested plans that would result in mass civilian deaths among ethnic Russian populations, who were to be labeled as “accomplices to terrorists.”
With regard to MH17, he called the Kiev regime an “accomplice” to that disaster, when the commercial jet, flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. “The amazingly prompt reaction of the Ukrainian leadership was the first thing that made me feel suspicious,” he said. “My unequivocal opinion was President Petro Poroshenko and his press service had prior knowledge of the affair. Secondly, hostilities had been underway for several months by then, but the airspace over the area was not closed.” Prozorov reported that when he attempted to learn more about what happened, he was told not to poke his nose into it if he didn’t wish to have problems.
Mintpress author Whitney Webb then goes into why Prozorov’s allegations should not be dismissed, the primary reason being that they’re coherent with available independent reporting dating back to 2014. It cites several examples of reporting on the secret prisons, including a UN attempt to investigate reports of torture in the secret prisons and the reporting by the late investigative journalist, founder of ConsortiumNews, Robert Parry describing how the official investigation into the MH17 disaster was almost completely dependent on the SBU.
“Thus, while Prozorov’s testimony will likely be dismissed by mainstream Western media outlets and Western governments that support Kiev, there is plenty of evidence suggesting that many of his claims—including his most shocking—deserve careful consideration, not outright dismissal,” Mintpress concludes.
There is also an additional TASS report which details Prozorov’s allegations about the involvement of U.S. and U.K. secret services in support of the Kiev regime. “I do not know for what motives. I believe this is for not only security but also conspiracy reasons, because CIA employees have been present in Kiev since 2014. They are residing in clandestine apartments and suburban houses,” he said. “However, they frequently come to the SBU’s central office for holding, for example, specific meetings or plotting secret operations,” he said.
