CIA Operated Spy Bases In Ukraine For Past Decade

In a bombshell report from The New York Times, it has been learned that the CIA built 12 secret spy bases in Ukraine and has been funding and operating them for the past decade.

This puts their creation at the time of the Maidan coup in 2014 when Western-influenced operatives overthrew the elected government of Ukraine and ran the pro-Russian president out of the country.

The spy bases were concentrated along the Russian border and used to not only intercept Russian communications but to launch drone and missile attacks within Russia itself. Among the targets were oil refineries and energy infrastructure including major cities, such as Rostov.

It has also been learned that the CIA used this spy program to train an elite force of operatives that would perform missions in Russia, Cuba, the rest of Europe, and other places where Russia has interests.

Although the program was started under the Obama administration, it attempted to operate discretely during the Trump presidency. This was due to Trump’s anti-war stance towards Russia while simultaneously having hawks such as John Bolton and CIA Director Mike Pompeo in his administration.

With the pro-Russian Ukrainian government toppled and a pro-Western one practically handpicked and installed, the CIA turned Ukraine into an information-gathering hub and a launching pad for missions that fought Russian separatists in the east. It is now serving as a base for attacking Russians both in and out of Ukraine.

Although Russia has accused the U.S. and its allies of doing this for years, its confirmation as part of the official narrative could have serious consequences, as it now gives Russia an open justification for retaliation in kind. The possibility of Russian agents now targeting U.S. and European infrastructure in a destructive way may increase, bringing us even closer to an outbreak of global war with Russia.

Of course, it may be asked exactly “why” the U.S. has chosen to confirm this information. With the Ukrainian army in retreat and low on ammunition, some speculate that it may serve as a warning to Russia concerning the extent to which the U.S. is prepared to defend its interests. However, it could also be a deliberate provocation to dare Russia to escalate, as it is also speculated that there are factions that may actually want NATO to have a greater role in the war if not a direct war with Russia.
