Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Crimean Anti-Coup Move

...According to news appearing in the French, Ukrainian and Russian press, Turkish Intelligence has a finger in the ongoing pro-EU protests in Ukraine. News stories from these three nations have claimed that the governmental intelligence organization of Turkey, the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) organized the transfer of separatist, jihadist Tatars trained in Turkey to the Ukraine.

...Voice of Russia reports about an alleged Anonymous hack of emails between the coup plotters in Kiev and a Tartar leader:

    [H]ackers posted a quote from one of the emails:

    "Everything is going according to the plan. We are ready to proceed with the second part of the play. As agreed earlier last week, my guys together with people from the "Karpatskaya Sech" and UNA-UNSO will arrive wherever is needed and with the necessary weapons. You only need to let us know the addresses of the warehouses in Simferopol, Sevastopol, Kerch, Feodosia and Yalta, and the time of the meeting...Don't worry about the money, everything will be fine, just a little bit later. In the end, you know that if we succeed, you will get a lot more."

    According to the text, the neo-Nazi organization "Trizub imeni Stepan Bandera" along with "Karpatskaya Sech " and UNA-UNSO are ready to fulfill all the dirty work: to kill, burn and banish all the opponents of Maidan from Crimea. Crimean Tatars should "only" provide them with "instruments", ie weapons and store them in the most important cities of the Crimea.

    A lot of people might consider that the Ukrainian nationalists and Crimean Tatars pursue different goals, and their union at first glance looks quite unnatural. However, they have one aim in common, which is to eliminate the Russian-speaking population from the Crimean region and for that their «union» is neccessary in pursuing the common strategic objective.

    It is also important to note that Aslan Omer Kyrymly is the founder of several companies and president of the board of the Crimean International Business Association (CIBA). He controls serious financial flows associated with various business projects, both in Ukraine and abroad. It is believed that Aslan Omer Kyrymly is a true leader of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars.

Turks...don't they have enough trouble at home?

Meanwhile, Tatar lawmaker Mustafa Dzhemilev of Batkivshchyna has asked acting President Oleksandr Turchynov to deploy the entire Ukrainian army to Crimea.

"I spoke with Turchynov that all of our military might should be deployed to Crimea. There are no threats in other oblasts yet. Call a state of emergency and take control," said Dzhemilev cited by RBK-Ukraine.

Obviously that's why Russians said today that military intervention is possible...
Today the government of Crimea brought forward a referendum on the region's status to March 30 and called for Russian help. What is the "west" going to say against that? If self-determination applies to Kosovo it surely also applies to the Crimea as well as to other east Ukrainian areas.

Huh...this is great!Now they have another " special case" like Kosovo to solve...

According to news appearing in the French, Ukrainian and Russian press

The evidence for this is:

M of A - The Crimean Anti-Coup Move

According to French news site Egalite et Réconciliation, dozens of Crimean Tatar Jihadists were extracted from Syria by the MİT and transferred to Ukraine via Turkey

Egalité et Réconciliation (I refuse to link to it) is not a news site but a propaganda outfit belonging to extreme-right homophobe anti-semite conspiracy theorist and inspirer of Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala, Alain Soral.

M of A - The Crimean Anti-Coup Move

According to information based on sources from the Security Service of Ukraine, (SBU),

That is all the backing given for the supposed "Ukrainian press" reports.


According to a Russian news site, Svobodnaya Pressa,

What Svobodnaya Pressa is exactly I can't say, there's too much Russian for me, but here's their current front-page lead article:


Entry of NATO troops into Ukraine is likely.

Those are the three sources quoted.

The M of A post by b then goes on to quote an unsubstantiated report by Voice of Russia of a supposed e-mail. Then:

M of A - The Crimean Anti-Coup Move

Anonymous (or Russian intelligence) earlier published emails

The stuff on the Voice of Russia site is a clumsy mock-up, zero credibility.

Just like this post from M of A. There is no serious backing for any of it. It's an insult to ET to repost it here.
