U.S. and EU sponsored coup against the elected
government and president of the Ukraine had several
strategic implications and aims. One of them is the
Black Sea base of the Russian Navy which is used to
supply and defend Syria. A takeover of the
government in Kiev was necessary but not sufficient
to neutralize the base as a strategic Russian asset.
To do that a takeover of the local government of the
Crimea and all its powers would also have to take
place. The Crimea is historically Russian and most
of it inhabitants are Russians. There is also a
rather small minority of Tatars of Muslim heritage.
There seem to
have been plans in place to use that minority to
help with a takeover of the Crimean government by
the "western" sponsored coup-government in Kiev.
December 2013(!) the Turkish website Aydinlik Daily
to news appearing in the French, Ukrainian and
Russian press, Turkish Intelligence has
a finger in the ongoing pro-EU protests in
Ukraine. News stories from these three
nations have claimed that the governmental
intelligence organization of Turkey, the
National Intelligence Organization (MİT)
organized the transfer of separatist, jihadist
Tatars trained in Turkey to the Ukraine.
According to French news site Egalite et
Réconciliation, dozens of Crimean Tatar
Jihadists were extracted from Syria by the MİT
and transferred to Ukraine via Turkey on an
İstanbul-Sevastopol flight of Turkish Airlines
on the 22 November. According to information
based on sources from the Security Service of
Ukraine, (SBU), Crimean Tatars who attended the
protests in Ukraine's capital Kiev on November
21 were charged with establishing the security
of the square. The Crimean security staff who
obtained the support of separatist "Azatlık"
movement operating in Russian city of Kazan
received political support from Nail Nabiullin,
the current president of Tatar Youth League in
26, shortly after the Kiev coup-government was
installed, Tataric groups
rioted in the Crimean capital:
fistfights broke out between rival demonstrators
in the regional capital of Simferopol when some
20,000 Muslim Tatars rallying in support of
Ukraine's interim leaders clashed with a smaller
protesters shouted and attacked each other with
stones, bottles and punches, as police and
leaders of both rallies struggled to keep the
two groups apart.
health official said at least 20 people were
injured, while the local health ministry said
one person died from an apparent heart attack.
Tatar leaders said there was a second fatality
when a woman was trampled to death by the crowd.
Authorities did not confirm that.
reports about an alleged Anonymous hack of
emails between the coup plotters in Kiev and a Tatar
posted a quote from one of the emails:
"Everything is going according to the plan. We
are ready to proceed with the second part of the
play. As agreed earlier last week, my guys
together with people from the "Karpatskaya Sech"
and UNA-UNSO will arrive wherever is needed and
with the necessary weapons. You only need to let
us know the addresses of the warehouses in
Simferopol, Sevastopol, Kerch, Feodosia and
Yalta, and the time of the meeting...Don't worry
about the money, everything will be fine, just a
little bit later. In the end, you know that if
we succeed, you will get a lot more."
According to the text, the neo-Nazi organization
"Trizub imeni Stepan Bandera" along with "Karpatskaya
Sech " and UNA-UNSO are ready to fulfill all the
dirty work: to kill, burn and banish all the
opponents of Maidan from Crimea. Crimean Tatars
should "only" provide them with "instruments",
ie weapons and store them in the most important
cities of the Crimea.
of people might consider that the Ukrainian
nationalists and Crimean Tatars pursue different
goals, and their union at first glance looks
quite unnatural. However, they have one aim in
common, which is to eliminate the
Russian-speaking population from the Crimean
region and for that their «union» is neccessary
in pursuing the common strategic objective.
also important to note that Aslan Omer Kyrymly
is the founder of several companies and
president of the board of the Crimean
International Business Association (CIBA). He
controls serious financial flows associated with
various business projects, both in Ukraine and
abroad. It is believed that Aslan Omer Kyrymly
is a true leader of the Mejlis of the Crimean
(or Russian intelligence) earlier
published emails between coup-plotter Klitschko
and the Lithuanian government.
27 Russian forces stationed in the Crimea and
supported by allegedly local paramilitary took over
security at two airports and of some government
buildings in Crimean cities. A Turkish flight to
Simferopol airport was
called back and further Turkish fights to Crimea
were canceled. The Turkish foreign minister
announced that he would today visit the
coup-government in Kiev:
important in Ukraine due to its strategic
location, multi-ethnic and multi-faith
formation. It is difficult to maintain peace in
Eurasia unless it is secured in Ukraine.
Likewise, maintaining peace in the Black Sea is
difficult unless it is secured in Crimea," [Davutoglu]
The status of Crimea amid the Ukraine crisis
cannot be determined without Turkey playing a
role, a deputy from Turkey’s ruling AK Party
"Turkish Foreign Minister [Ahmet] Davutoglu's
visit to Ukraine is an indication of Turkey's
intention to be proactive in developments in
Crimea," Samil Tayyar told the Anadolu Agency.
Two Turkish Airlines flights from Istanbul to
the Crimean capital of Simferopol on Friday
night have been canceled amid escalating tension
on the peninsula.
Early Friday, another Turkish airline, Atlasjet,
cancelled a flight to Simferopol after media
reports that Simferopol International Airport
had been seized by armed groups.
attempt by coup forces to
seize the interior ministry of the Crimea
tonight was repelled. In Kiev anti-Russian Tatars
call for more trouble:
Tatar lawmaker Mustafa Dzhemilev of
Batkivshchyna has asked acting President
Oleksandr Turchynov to deploy the entire
Ukrainian army to Crimea.
spoke with Turchynov that all of our military
might should be deployed to Crimea. There are no
threats in other oblasts yet. Call a state of
emergency and take control,” said Dzhemilev
cited by RBK-Ukraine.
emerging from the above seems to show that:
Turkish intelligence helped with training Tatars
in support of a local Crimea anti-Russian coup
Russian intelligence has thoroughly penetrated
the coup-plotters communications (see
Nuland tape) and knew what was coming
Russian aligned forces secured the Crimea and
prevented infiltration of more Tataric units
- On the
Crimea, as well as in other Russian aligned
areas in east Ukraine (Donetsk, Mykolaiv and
Dnipropetrovsk), counter coups are establishing
separate regions which will ask for Russian
support and eventual incorporation into the
- If all
this goes well for the Russians the "western"
coup in Kiev will have resulted in the "west"
acquiring a bankrupt, dirt poor west Ukraine
while Russia will acquire the industry and
resource rich east Ukraine and will keep the
Crimea as its strategic asset
- In the
context of the war of Syria the coup in the
Ukraine was a countermeasure to Russian support
for Syria. Unless the Crimea falls to coup
forces that countermeasure will have failed.
little the U.S. can say against Russian troops in
Crimea. According to the status of force agreement
Russia can post up to 30,000 soldiers there. The
normal size of its forces there is just half of
that. If Russia wants to reinforce those it can do
so without breaking any national or international
government of Crimea brought forward a referendum on
the region's status to March 30 and
called for Russian help. What is the "west"
going to say against that? If self-determination
applies to Kosovo it surely also applies to the
Crimea as well as to other east Ukrainian areas.
