A creeping anti-constitutional coup takes place in Ukraine today. We know how independent the current president of Ukraine is and his actions, first to ban television channels, and now to ban one of the leading Ukrainian oligarchs, are an indicator of his power. But everything is exactly the opposite. He was ordered to go beyond constitutional norms.
Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt was recruited by the US in 1973. At the time, he was working within the program International Visitors, targeted against Communism. Presently he openly attacks the Russian authorities and even calls on using military action against Russia, as he considers Moscow’s policies “aggressive”.
An unfounded claim. No sources for Mr. Bildt’s alleged “call for military action” is presented.
Carl Bildt received a scholarship in 1973 on the International Visitor’s Program, an exchange programme, led by the US Departement of State. Various US organisations offer scholarships and training programmes for an international audience, including Russian citizens. Dmitry Kiselyov, the head of the state-owned Rossiya Segodnya media holding and Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of RT and Sputnik, have both attended US government funded training programmes.
