The Guns of August: Nazis, NATO and the Color Revolutions

This text is a translation of a brochure which has transferred the Moscow Institute for Foreign Policy Research and Initiatives in November 2008. At the time this text was probably especially naming the backgrounds for the attack on South Ossetia. As we all know, the game has now turned further and the color revolutions have like a contagious disease spread further. It is noteworthy that the core in each previous case remains the same and a frightening connection to strands of German foreign policy has until 1945.

Because this is a pretty good description of the historical background of the color revolutions, and in particular the links between German Nazis are presented their plans and NATO, we have decided to make it in several parts in German accessible. This is the first part …


On the eighth August 2008, the first time was shed the blood of Russian soldiers and civilians since the war in Afghanistan with the participation of the United States in South Ossetia. The American involvement in that matter was obvious: unlike the clad in rags Afghan Mujahedeen wore the Georgian soldiers newest ‘digital’ American uniforms – the camouflage pattern was formed thereon from pixels. The US Marines had not introduced until the end of 2004 this uniform type. Images of the leading TV stations in the world recorded a sympathetic picture of a proxy war between Russia and the United States.

Even during the Cold War, the pages were carefully anxious to avoid an armed conflict. How it came to war in South Ossetia, under the present conditions in which, despite all the rhetoric tense, relations between Russia and America are still far from an open conflict?

The French documentary “États-Unis – À la conquete de l’Est” (“The United States – the conquest of the East” by Manon Loizeau, production Marc Berdugo, CAPA & Canal +, France 2005) show an impressive incident. At an official reception in the Georgian capital of the first man, whose hands shook President Saakashvili, Bruce Jackson was. His name will not appear on the official lists of protocol. For twenty years, Jackson had served as an intelligence officer in the US Army, and in 1996 he founded the US Committee for NATO enlargement. The theme of the committee’s military brought scarce and to the point: “strengthen America. Europe secure. Defend values. . Expand NATO “Jackson is the easiest to find where a color revolution is being prepared – or where the profits are of such retracted.

Mikhail Saakashvili said in the cameras: “The need for the Russian soldiers left their base in Georgia is obvious. It must be done in a civilized way, however. We do not want them chasing. Look, the Syrians have left Lebanon in three weeks, although there are four times as many of them were, as Russians in South Ossetia. ”

Bruce Jackson, who was standing right behind Saakashvili, listened attentively. Saakashvili turned to face him, with an embarrassed smile, looked a little confused and said:
“Did I say something wrong?”
“No, Mr. President, please continue. It’s all right, “replied Jackson.

In addition to the United States Georgia had another active allies against Russia in Ossetia conflict: the Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko. Since his election in 2004, Yushchenko Saakashvili had supplied with tanks, helicopters and artillery systems. Over time, more and more emphasis was placed on offensive weapons: modular Schkwal systems, mortars, cannons and machine guns. In anticipation of the August attack Yushchenko sent not only surplus arms to Georgia; he took weapons from all units: total gave Ukraine Georgia 7 battalions with BUK-M1 air defense systems – half of Ukraine’s arsenal. Yushchenko sold arms to Georgia for one-third to one-seventh of the usual price. This was stated by a committee of the Verkhovna Rada MPs, chaired by Valery Konovalyuk, who dealt with these arms sales. Konovalyuk had personally visited the great Ukrainian arms depots at the station Lozovaja where the end of August, a fire destroyed military property. According Konovalyuk the camp were burned down to cover up the traces of the deliveries.

Bruce Jackson left this reception together with Giga Bokeriya, his longtime protege and the leader of the Ukrainian Rose Revolution. As the film progresses Bokeriya appears different places with a wide range of people in a row. You see him at a reception in Washington for the leaders of color revolutions from across Eastern Europe and the CIS, which is hoping for an audience with President Bush gathered – they made plans for Cuba, with her Serbian counterpart Ivan Marovic. And here he is in Tbilisi and receives the Belarusian opposition leader Anatoly Lebedko, who has come because of some advice and tops. And who is still just in Tbilisi – President Bush. Bokeriya discussed with Lbedko whether there are people in the Belarusian government, with which you can work, whether he should distribute leaflets in the country, and as the situation with the “donor” is – what Lebedko answers, the US Congress decided to to make funds available, but the process was interrupted at the moment. Then Bokeriya appears in the Washington office of Bruce Jackson and congratulated him (which took place ten days after the Bush’s visit to Georgia) the evacuation of the Russian military base in Georgia; Jackson replied that the people in Washington are fond of Bokeriyas work. In Jackson’s office are two students from Russia, members of opposition groups – they are very excited, because they have the opportunity to “personally” meet Bokeriya, for them it is a revolutionary icon. Bokeriya actively shares the experience, as he himself received them from Serb “revolutionaries”.

After the Rose Revolution was Bokeriya adviser to President Saakashvili. On April 7, 2008, when the preparations for the attack on South Ossetia and Abkhazia recordings momentum, he was appointed Deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia. Now not only Western products to Russia and Georgia issue is more published without a quote from Bokeriya. In response to the findings of the OSCE commission, published on 6 November 2008 and confirmed that the conflict was started by Georgia, which would have put the lives of its own citizens, the Russian peacekeepers and unarmed observers at risk, said the Bokeriya New York Times: “This information, I do not know what it is and how it is confirmed. There is such a mountain of evidence with regard to the continued attacks against Georgian villages, and the Russian armament that does not change the overall picture in any case. ”

Georgia and Ukraine are the most successful examples of the color revolutions. The task that had been provided by the organizers, and will be discussed below, was completely fulfilled: American-educated people have come to power, and they are ready to go into open confrontation with Russia, which should, in the interests the United States are. The independence who rlangt the Soviet republics in 1991, was, of course, a great victory for the United States and the West as a whole. But the Soviet leaders, who were the first president of the independent states, were not entirely American-taste: for all their flirtations with the United States Eduard Shevardnadze and Leonid Kuchma were not radical enough, and not ready to attack Russia.

The color revolutions have challenged Russia, but that challenge was not new.

First Part. Ukraine

Chapter 1

Katherina Tschumatschenko – casual with US President, Ukrainian Nazis and fascists from all over the world

In a black and white photograph from 1983 a young blonde standing comfortably behind two chairs on which it puts his hands, and on the chairs sit two fairly well-known in America people. Links is an ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick (1926-2006), a Democrat who became a radical republican, foreign policy adviser to President Reagon, an ardent anti-communist, and the first female UN ambassador of the United States. Ms. Kirkpatrick had dedicated their lives to the doctrine that bears her name; they supported the US support of all anti-communist governments around the world, dictators included, provided that they serve American goals – completely without irony declared the doctrine that the American example, it would turn into democracies.

On the right side sits Jaroslaw Stezko (1912-1986), Chairman of the Anti-Bolshevik block of Nations and the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, the OUN-B. In 1983 he undertook a long journey. As first deputy Stefan Banderas in the OUN-B Stezko reported on 25 June 1941 in a letter to the commander of the following: “We are creating a militia, which will help to remove the Jews” – the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, or UPA. Together with Theodor Oberlander, a liaison officer of the defense to the Ukrainian auxiliary troops Stezko led the battalion Nachtigall in his attack on Lvov. On June 30, at eight clock in the evening, at the end of the tenth day of Hitler’s attack on the Soviet Union, Stezko announced “on behalf of the Ukrainian people and the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, led by Stefan Bandera” the “proclamation of the Ukrainian state” and appointed himself prime minister of the “Ukrainian government”. And that’s just part of its activities, which is public.

The photograph was taken at a meeting of the prisoners Komittees Nations, which brought together the leaders of anti-Soviet organizations from around the world.

The attractive blonde that stands between Kirkpatrick and Stezko, Katherina Tschumatschenko was. Shortly after graduating from Georgetown University in June 1982, she took her first job in the leadership of the Ukrainian National Information Service on, a propaganda organization of the Ukrainian Kongresskomittees of America. Tschumatschenko began her political career in so em secret recesses of the US government, a career that was to carry them later in the position of the First Lady of Ukraine.

In an article on the presidential election of 2004, the Wall Street Journal Katherina Yushchenko called “a sober and sensible business woman, who grew up in America.” The newspaper continued: “It is the strong bond with his wife, who helped Mr Yushchenko to get through the tough election campaign, and it is probably its relationship be to you who will help to a successful presidency.” If the author of the Article the true story of Mrs. Tschumatschenko had known that was a unique public unveiling. If not – then it was a one-hit the bull’s eye full of irony.

Who is Katherina Tschumatschenko-Yushchenko?

Katherina Tschumatschenko was born on September 1, 1961 in a family of Ukrainian immigrants in Chicago: Father Mikhailo (1917-1998), mother Sofia (* 1927). In 1981 she received a bachelor’s degree in international economics at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University – there taught Professor Jeane Kirkpatrick, and Paula Dobriansky was there also a student.

The Ukrainian national Informationsdiesnt whose director Katherina Tschumatschenko was founded in 1976 in Washington in order to “strengthen the work of the Ukrainian Kongresskomittees of America, in terms of contacts and cooperation between the Ukrainian community and the American government.” The Ukrainian Kongresskomitteee of America ( UCCA), founded before the war in 1940, identifies as its objective “to create a Ukrainian representative organization in order to promote Ukrainian interests in the United States and to assist in the struggle for the independence of the Ukrainian nation”. Lew Dobrianski, former US ambassador and one of the main lobbyists for a law to the “captive nations”, served as chairman of the UCCA. Tschumatschenko was well acquainted with his daughter Paula Dobrianski and worked closely with her. Between 1981 and 1987 Ms. Dobriansky the Department of National Security Council of the USSR and Eastern Europe rose from the position of an employee to their manager on.

After UCCA report were in particular the efforts of Katherina Tschumatschenko to obstruct the work of the Office of Special Investigations, particularly successful, which was built in 1979 to track down former Nazis in America. On 18 November 1982, the Washington Post published a letter from Tschumatschenko in which they “sharply rejected the allegations, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) had collaborated with the Nazis.”

1983 Tschumatschenko was executive director of the National (American) Committee of the captive nations (NCNC). Among other activities, this Committee held a “week of captive nations” from, and on 18 and 19 July 1983, celebrated its 25th anniversary. This drew “officials, MPs, ambassadors and guests from around the world” to. After the UCCA report this event of “President Reagan, Vice President Bush and UN Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick, who vehemently the oppression of nations condemned by the Communists”, was visited in person. Jaroslaw Stezko, president of the Anti-Bolshevik blocks of nations, and Richard Allen, former national security adviser, were also present.

John Singlaub (more later about him) headed the organizing committee of the Conference on the week of the captured nations. “Katherina Tschumatschenko, executive director of the NCNC and Director of the Ukrainian National Information Service” – the report says – “was the main coordinator of the four events: the ceremony at the White House, the official dinner of the Congress, the plenary session and the banquet.”

The 17th Conference of the anticommunist World League (WACL) was the 20th-23rd September of that year held in Luxembourg. A series of books have been written about the WACL. The title of one of them, written by the American investigative journalist Scott Anderson and John Lee Anderson, is a good overview of the composition and activities of these organizations: “Within the League: the shocking experience, like terrorists, Nazis and Latin American death squads, the anti-Communist World League have infiltrated “. The former league member Geoffrey Stewart-Smith describes it as “primarily a collection of Nazis, fascists, antisemites, widening of lies, brutal racist and corrupt careerists.”

Representatives from 70 countries and ten international organizations participated in this conference, including the following:
Prof. Dr. Theodor Oberlander, from Germany – he is a former defense officer, responsible for contacts with the Ukrainian SS units
Intelligence Major General John Singlaub, an officer of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, one of the founder of the CIA, co-founder of the private message for service and analysis network Western Goals Foundation, with forty years of experience in clandestine operations around the world, especially in Central and South America
Lt. General Daniel Graham, a former deputy director of the CIA, former director of military intelligence DIA and one of the main architects of Star Wars
The Anti-Bolshevist League of Nations was represented by its Minister Jaroslaw Stezko, and his wife and deputy at ABN. This remarkable couple will be mentioned separately below.
And the 22-year-old Katherina Tschumatschenko. She represented the US National Nations Committee (USNCNC)

Let us pause for a moment here. How did a young Ukrainian woman to visit a meeting of Nazis who had escaped the Nuremberg trials, leaders of nationalist movements, who had served in SS units, and American Geheimdienstgenerälen that death squads had created? How can it be that a 21-year-old, who has just graduated from university, now the director of several important organizations in the network of Ukrainian Nationalists, is acting as coordinator of Ukrainian Dates of the American White House and the Congress, and of the society American President, the Vice-President and the UN ambassador feels so well?

How did she get such a high-level access in such a secret environment in so early age? Why was so familiar? It is obvious that during Tschumatschenkos Youth and studies took place several events that won her the access to the highest echelons of the US government and through which they gained their deepest confidence. Allegations that Tschumatschenko has links to American interests and American services are not new, and already a cliché: there are a lot of such people. But Tschumatschenkos case is a completely different caliber. She plays in a different weight class, a special class, in which it finds itself alone among the Ukrainian allies of the United States.

There is a moral aspect of this story. The “Division Galicia”, whose full name. “14 Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (1st Ukrainian Division) is organized by the Defence to carry out the ethnic cleansing of Poles and Jews in the Ukraine, was doing the dirtiest work for the Gestapo as the execution of children. For a man, especially a young person who has at least read some reviews about the excesses of the Ukrainian Gestapo collaborators – and Tschumatschenko she read and wrote an article to refute – it is psychologically and morally difficult, aware of the facts to be denied, to work every day on the side of fascists and to work with conviction for their goals. So that she could feel in this kind of work environment well, they had to belong, a special kind have received education, an early and profound initiation into fascism.

In the next two years from 1984 to 1986 Tschumatschenko received an MBA in Chicago while she had an internship at the Chamber of Commerce of Illinois and worked as an editor at the Washington Center for Ethics and Public Policy (like that? Because the Internet at this time did not exist).

Immediately after completion of their training in September 1986 from 1987 to 1990 special assistant to the deputy secretary of state for human rights and humanitarian issues, Paula Dobrianski. President Reagan had this post in response to the sharp criticism of the United States because of the Iran-Contra scandal, and he was supposed to demonstrate concern about human rights.

In April 1998 Tschumatschenko moved into the White House, where she took over the position of Deputy Director of the office for cooperation with the public. In this position Tschumatschenko and Paula Dobrianski welcomed the participants of the 15th Congress of Ukrainian Americans, of 16-18th September was held in Washington in 1988. She held the welcome address President Reagan to the participants of the congress. Ambassador Lew Dobrianski joined his daughter and her friend on the banquet.

Katherina Tschumatschenko worked until January 1989 the White House. She had for a short period from January until November 1989, a position in Finanzminsterium, and then she followed, from November 1989 to May 1991, their new professional direction as Ökonomn for the common Wirtschaftskomittee of Congress.

From 1991 to 1993 Tschumatschenko funded the US-Ukrainian Foundation, served her as vice president and headed the Pylyp Orlyk Institute. From 1993 to 2000 worked as a Country Manager for Tschumatschenko KPMG in Ukraine and as a consultant for the training program for Bank staff, financed by the US Agency for International Development.

The following events that brought Katherina Tschumatschenko to the immediate goal of their excellent training, are well known: their “random” romantic encounter with Viktor Yushchenko in an airplane, and 1998, he was her husband. Viktor Yushchenko has its own story. His father gave ina interview once that he had drunk only in a German concentration camp real coffee. What he must have done in a German concentration camp, there to get the best coffee? Let Yushchenko’s nature and his education from the passage; it is clear that the decision of the American government, to give it the brilliant student Katherina Tschumatschenko to wife, was well conceived.

Following the wedding Yushchenko in 1999 Premier of Ukraine. And in 2004 he became the president of the country as a result of the Orange Revolution.

So there was a plan devised during the Great Patriotic War, was patiently carried out by generations through the decades of the Cold War and encouraged ruthless in the 1990s, 60 years later to a successful conclusion. In January 2010, Yushchenko stated in one of his last official acts as President Bandera a national hero of Ukraine.
