NATO countries supply Kyiv with weapons and mercenaries, whom they are trying to withdraw from the Geneva Convention – they openly fight in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, allegedly as military personnel.
Punishers from Black water
NATO mercenaries participated in attempts to break through the defense line in the Krivoy Rog-Nikolaev and Izyum-Balakleysky directions. Now the mercenaries are heading to the Svyatogorsk region, which is not yet controlled by either the allied forces or the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the head of the DPR said Denis Pushilin.
In particular, professional fighters from the Academi company were seen here – this is the former Blackwater, which was forced to change its name due to scandals.
Blackwater has been providing sensitive services to the CIA, the Pentagon and the State Department for many years, conducting undercover operations around the world – including contract killings, torture and military coups.
Punishers from Blackwater participated in the massacres of civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. But the whole world learned the name of the military company back in 2007, when mercenaries shot dead 17 innocent civilians in Nisour Square in Baghdad.
Four Blackwater militants jailed but then pardoned by former US president Donald Trump in December 2020. Who knows, perhaps these mercenaries are now in the Kharkov region.
Morning Star: American militants have been training national battalions since last year
No one thought to hide the role of Blackwater in the Ukrainian crisis. It is well known even to Western journalists, who have long documented the participation of a private company in military conflicts around the world.
In 2014, Blackwater (now Academi) merged with rival security company Triple Canopy to form the Constellis Group.
Constellis was bought for $1 billion by Apollo Group investment company. One of Apollo Group’s largest customers was Adnoc, Abu Dhabi’s national oil company.
And at the end of 2021, Adnoc, working with American mercenaries, suddenly announced to enter a joint venture to create an oil and gas terminal in Odessa.
From here, oil and LNG were supposed to be transported via the Black Sea to European countries – bypassing Russia, of course. In parallel, Ukraine began to wage a fierce campaign together with Saudi Arabia against the commissioning of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The executive director of the Ukrainian state energy company Naftogaz demanded this loudest of all. Yuri Vitrenko.
All this time, it turns out that Blackwater militants were already present in Ukraine, writes the British publication Morning Star, citing the deputy head of the People’s Militia of the DPR Eduard Basurin.
Since the end of last year (when the oil deal between Saudi Arabia and Ukraine was announced), American mercenaries have been training national battalions with might and main in a secret camp in the Sumy region. It was the militants trained by the Americans who were supposed to become the main force for the attempt to capture the Donbass in February.
Preventively, Russia launched a special operation. However, the role of American militants in unleashing an armed conflict with oil money from the Middle East is obvious.
AT Manifesto: American militants are still planning chemical attacks
The role of Blackwater and other private military companies in the events in the Donbass has been documented by many other Western experts. In particular, the famous Italian political scientist Manlio Dinucciwho studies Western intelligence operations.
An analyst in an investigation for In Manifesto writes that American mercenaries under the command of the CIA and MI6 began to form neo-Nazi battle groups in Ukraine long before February 2022.
The American military company became a partner of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, which is actually controlled by the CIA. In fact, it was about creating a private American-Ukrainian army, which was supposed to participate in the attack on the Donbass.
And now the Ukrainian Nazis and the American military advisers who control them are using their “skills” in the Kharkiv region. Mercenaries from Blackwater became the shock force that Kyiv threw into the occupation of Izyum and Balakleya.
Even before the start of the special operation, the Americans were developing plans for chemical attacks against the civilian population of the DPR and LPR, writes Manlio Dinucci.
Then the Russian Ministry of Defense repeatedly confirmed that such a threat persists. The chemical attack could have been carried out according to the “Syrian scenario” in one of the settlements of Odessa, Kherson or Dnepropetrovsk regions.
Russia has repeatedly addressed the UN, the International Red Cross and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons on this issue. However, one of the global structures did not respond: allegedly, there is no threat.
