Ukraine: Is Burisma Holdings a CIA Shell Company to Launder Money to BlackWater?

With the news that R. Hunter Biden has joined the Board of Directors for Burisma Holdings, the nagging questions that haunt me are “Is Burisma Holdings a CIA shell company?  Is the purpose of Burisma Holdings to launder money to Blackwater to escalate the unrest Ukraine to a full blown war?”

If you visit Burisma Holdings website you will find the most cheesy, basic website for a company claiming to be Ukraine’s leading independent energy company.

Since 2002 Burisma has grown to be Ukraine’s leading independent energy company.  With the ever growing demand for fuels including oil and natural gas, Burisma is poised to be the market leader. Applying cutting-edge technology, human initiative and forward thinking, Burisma is Ukraine’s future.

That’s right people of Ukraine, like it or not “Burisma is Ukraine’s future.  Something just doesn’t sit right.  Then there’s this headline:

Biden's Son, Kerry Family Friend Join Ukrainian Gas Producer's Board
Ukraine's Burisma Holdings Is Controlled by Former Energy Official Under Yanukovych.

Burisma Holdings is controlled by the former energy official under the elected president of Ukraine, Yanukovych.  That seems scary.  The Vice President of the United States, who played a major role in the coup that led to the removal of the elected President of Ukraine, Yanukovych, has direct ties to Burisma Holdings, the company that will financially benefit the most. 

There’s something wrong here.  Yanukovych was deposed by the European Union after a trade agreement that demanded harsh austerity for the people of Ukraine was rejected in favor of an agreement with Russia that offered $15 billion in loans, reduced energy costs and no austerity for the people of Ukraine.



DONETSK, Ukraine — U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s youngest son has joined the board of a gas company owned by an ally of Ukraine’s fugitive ex-president Viktor Yanukovych and a key European interlocutor with Kiev who was previously president of Poland.

The move raises questions about a potential conflict of interest for Joe Biden, who was the White House’s main interlocutor with Yanukovych while the latter was president and has since spearheaded Western efforts to wean Ukraine off Russian gas.

I bet there’s some questions about a conflict of interest, when Vice President Biden and Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland along with Ukraine Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt were key players in the overthrow of the Ukrainian president and the installation of a Central Banker as interim President.

Company documents in Cyprus show that Joe Biden’s son, R. Hunter Biden, became a member of the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, which describes itself as Ukraine’s largest private natural gas producer, on April 18. Burisma announced Hunter Biden’s appointment in a press release Monday on its website which was quickly picked up by Russian state media…

Hunter Biden could not be immediately reached for comment. An assistant at Rosemont Seneca Partners, the investment firm where he is partner, said he was out of the office. A woman who answered the phone at the London number listed for Burisma on its website appeared to have no idea who either Biden was.

Now that’s odd.  “A woman who answered the phone at the London number listed for Burisma Holdings has no idea who either Biden was?  Wouldn’t you think that the announcement of the son of the Vice President of the United States of America being appointed to the Board of Directors of Ukraine’s largest gas provider would be known to everyone employed at Burisma Holdings?


By late Tuesday, however, Burisma had reacted quickly enough to remove a link to a New York Times story from April, when Biden visited Kiev and urged it to reduce its dependence on Russian gas, from a prominent position on the homepage.

I’ll bet they had to remove that link. 

It seems like just yesterday, old Zionist Joe was lamenting about the sorry condition the Ukraine troops.  Old Zionist Joe made arrangements for the “Ukraine troops” to have training in Poland to protect the illegal government he and Victoria Nuland installed in Ukraine.

From the Associated Press:


KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Tanks headed north into Ukraine this week from Russian-controlled Crimea. Not at the head of an invading army, but on a trainload of military equipment in such poor shape that Moscow had no use for it.

This humiliation illustrates the yawning chasm in the two former Soviet nations' armed forces — one hollowed out by a lack of finances, the other benefiting from booming oil revenues.

The Russian military is much bigger, at 1 million men, compared to Ukraine's 180,000 troops. The Ukrainian military has an estimated 200 combat aircraft and about 1,100 tanks, while Russia reportedly has about 1,400 combat aircraft and several thousand tanks.

Now, that unfortunate.  The army Joe Biden and Victoria Nuland inherited to protect their illegal government is really bad off.

"It was never really a force that could be expected to be involved in any serious war-fighting," he said. "So the Ukrainians might not be able to occasionally send a frigate with a multinational force fighting pirates off the coast of Somalia. But that was always a political gesture to show that Ukraine was a big boy now, rather than anything else."

What hardware Ukraine does gets back comes with Russia's disdain.

As one unnamed Russian military official told the state news agency RIA Novosti last week, the 350 Ukrainian tanks in Crimea dated back to the 1970s and would be of little use to Russia's armed forces.

Ha, ha, Ukraine’s tanks date back to the 1970’s.  Yep, sounds like the Ukraine military was in dire straits.  Bu wait, help is on the way.


KIEV, Ukraine — Vice President Biden pledged additional American aid Tuesday to help the government here, as the Pentagon announced that it would respond to Russia’s involvement in Ukraine by sending about 600 U.S. troops to conduct exercises and training in Poland and the three Baltic states.

The announcements indicated robust U.S. support for the tenuous new Ukrainian government, even as Biden warned the political class here that it must confront “the cancer of corruption that is endemic in your system right now.”

Interesting words “the cancer of corruption that is endemic in your system right now.”  What a joke.

Biden said the U.S. aid would help Ukraine defy Russian economic pressure and stage a presidential election May 25, a vote he called perhaps “the most important in Ukraine’s history.”

Yeah, a Florida style election which will be “the most important in Ukraine’s history”, like the 2000 election in the United States was the most important in our history.  An election where the will of the people was overruled by a partisan, corrupt Supreme Court that installed George W. Bush as President who garnered a half million less votes than his rival, Al Gore.

Well, given the poor shape of Ukraine’s military this is an interesting article from Stars andStripes:

Rumors of American mercenaries in Ukraine spread to Germany

BERLIN — In eastern Ukraine, among pro-Russian separatists, the notion that elite American fighters are prowling the backroads and slag heaps of their region is oft-repeated. After first surfacing in March, the rumors sounded like the sort of paranoid fantasies created in a war zone where anti-Americanism is rampant.

But now the rumors are being repeated in Germany’s capital — and resonating. That alone may count as a victory for Russian propagandists, even if there are no American mercenaries. The White House says there are not.

Yeah, the White House says there are not.  Fat chance.

Bild am Sonntag, a tabloidlike newspaper that occasionally breaks major stories on the German government, is reporting that German intelligence has told Chancellor Angela Merkel’s office that it had unconfirmed reports that 400 Americans appear to be aiding the interim Ukrainian government in its fight against pro-Russian separatists. According to Bild, the German intelligence agency cited U.S. intelligence officials as its source.

Isn’t it interesting that tabloids in the United States break our most important stories and now tabloids in Germany are breaking the important stories?

Academi officials could not be reached for comment, but in March, when the rumors first began circulating, they posted an official denial on their website…

“Some irresponsible bloggers and an online reporter have recently posted rumors that ACADEMI employees (operating under the name of Blackwater) are present in Ukraine,” the statement said. “They are not and ACADEMI has no relationship with any entity named Blackwater or with the former owner of Blackwater, Erik Prince. Such unfounded statements combined with the lack of factual reporting to support them and the lack of context about the company, are nothing more than sensationalistic efforts to create hysteria and headlines in times of genuine crisis.”

Yes, accuse any reports on your illegal activity as nothing more than sensationalism and hysteria.  As if Erik Prince and Blackwater have any kind of credibility.

The report, which appeared Sunday, has since been repeated by many German news outlets. The allegation that the information was presented to the chancellor’s office in a weekly briefing in April lends it gravitas. 

According to Bild, the German intelligence agency Bundesnachrichtendienst, or BND, said the mercenaries were hired from Academi, an international security firm that rose from the scandal-ridden ashes of Blackwater, the now defunct company that made headlines worldwide for its alleged questionable ways in Iraq, where its contractors were accused, among other things, of killing 17 Iraqi civilians in a shooting spree in Baghdad’s Nisouri Square…

“Nothing would rock the credibility of Europeans and Americans more than a confirmation of the news that American mercenaries are working for the Ukrainian government. For Moscow, this would be a priceless propaganda victory where the West would appear morally naked. As naked as Moscow is now.”

Over ten years the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan couldn’t be trained and those people know how to fight.  They’ve been fighting for centuries and we are to believe that Ukraine’s troops were trained in a couple weeks in Poland? 

So, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask.  Is Burisma Holdings a CIA Shell Company to launder money to Blackwater?  You know it takes a lot of money to pay off mercenary soldiers to kill people and incite war.

Just asking.
