Fran's earlier post today ...
Haven't seen this site before, don't know how reliable it is, but it still makes interesting reading:
○ Meet the Americans Who Put Together the Coup in Kiev
No surprise here!
Read about USAID and the linked NGOs operating in the Ukraine in my earlier posts. From Fran's first link ...
Many of Hromadske's journalists had worked in the past with American benefactors. Editor-in-chief Roman Skrypin was a frequent contributor to Washington's Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty and the US-funded Ukrayinska Pravda. In 2004, he had helped create Channel 5 television, which played a major role in the Orange Revolution that the US and its European allies masterminded in 2004.
Senator John McCain chairs the parallel International Republican Institute, with a board that stretches from his longtime advisor and a paid lobbyist for Georgia, neocon Randy Scheuneman.

○ USAID funding a network of interlocking NGOs - Chesno (Honestly), Center UA and Stop Censorship, to name a few
○ Confirmed: Omidyar's NGOs Clearly Partner in Regime Change
○ Embarrassment to GG, MW of The Intercept: Omidyar Co-funded Ukraine Revolt
The earliest propaganda footage and photo's of "snipers" at Maidan Independence square were shared between RFERL and the pro-West Ukraine's Pravda:
Photo's of police with yellow armbands were released on a phony website: "Украинской правды" which translates as "Ukraine's Pravda."

Remarks on the Conference 'Ukraine's Choice' (2004) -- By Krystyna Litton
On Friday, December 10th, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) held a conference entitled "Ukraine's Choice". The conference attempted to assess Ukraine's geopolitical orientation, civil society, and economy after the presidential elections.
The AEI is one of the largest public policy think tanks in Washington, DC. The conference was also sponsored by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation, Freedom House, the International Republican Institute, the National Endowment for Democracy, and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
Among speakers were well know politicians and researchers such as Zbigniew Brzezinski, Radek Sikorski, Vyacheslav Briukhovetsky, the chief of staff for Viktor Yushchenko Oleh Rybachuk, Adrian Karatnycky of Freedom House, Paula Dobriansky and others.
Any relationship? WhoIs Paula J. Dobriansky ... appears to be daughter of anti-communist Lev E. Dobriansky.
Did we mention Poland's FM Radek Sikorski and spouse "first lady" Anne Applebaum
