Top U.S. diplomat launches f-bomb on EU in leaked recorded conversation


The more I live in Ukraine, and the more I write about the freedom movement, the more western ‘diplomats’ scare me. Why are ‘diplomats’ working against the will of the people? What do they expect to gain? Why aren’t they working for a peace deal?

A leaked audio recording of a phone call allegedly catches the top U.S. diplomat to Europe working on a behind-the-scenes deal to end the Ukrainian political turmoil, and using profanity to express strong frustrations with inaction and indecision by the European Union in resolving the crisis.

In the conversation, voices closely resembling those of Assistant Secretary for European Affairs Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt discuss a plan to broker a deal between the Ukrainian government and the opposition.

    Granted, it doesn’t mean that Ms Nuland’s insult stings any less, mind you. 🙂
