Internet activists found inconsistencies in the message of the GPU on the participation of Glazyev and Zatulin at Ukrainian events
A group of independent investigations of military conflict Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) conducted the analysis published by the Prosecutor General of Ukraine (GPU) records of telephone conversations of the Russian President’s adviser Sergei Glazyev in the winter and in the spring of 2014, allegedly proving the involvement of the Russian authorities towards the Ukrainian events, found inconsistencies in the datings. At the same time as published on the website of the group, the report notes that despite such inconsistencies within several days, there is a “significant amount” of circumstantial evidence of the authenticity of the wiretaps.
According to CIT, if there is direct confirmation of the authenticity of the published materials, it will be possible to consider them “convincing enough proof of the involvement of the top management of the Russian Federation to the organization of the Pro-Russian protests and riots in the South-East of Ukraine in the spring of 2014. From open sources it is possible to establish that the defendants in the wiretap was indeed directly involved in Ukrainian events two years ago, according to the study.
According to the GPU, in particular, on the recordings, a detailed transcript of which was published in the edition “jellyfish”, are dated February and in the spring of 2014 talk Glazyev and former Duma Deputy, Director of the Institute of CIS countries Konstantin Zatulin on the organization and financing of mass riots in Donetsk, Odessa and Kharkov.
Were also released, as claimed in Kiev, negotiations with the coordinators and organizers of the action, including a citizen of Ukraine, head of the Union of Orthodox citizens of Ukraine Valery Kaurov on the organization of capture of the Odessa regional Council in the spring of 2014. On the records and a telephone conversation about holding a referendum in the Crimea On the status of Crimea” Glazyev with the current head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov.
On the eve Zatulin declared “rigging” the published record. Eyes simply refused to comment, as he put it in an interview with RBC, the “nonsense of Nazi war criminals”.
After examining the released records, the CIT group found that dates of some of the conversations surrounding wrong, but according to Internet activists, it does not follow that such discussion was not. For example, in a conversation dated GPU 27 Feb 2014, Zatulin said Glazyev, “I tomorrow early in the morning there (in the Crimea) go”. Thus in an interviewgiven to the newspaper “Moskovsky Komsomolets” on March 2, 2014 Zatulin says that is in the Crimea Tuesday, that is 25 February 2014. Thus, this conversation with Glazyev may have taken place on 24 February 2014, concludes the study.
As noted in the report, it is difficult to establish what activities Zatulin was carried out in the Crimea, but from open sources it is known that he participated in Pro-Russian rallies in Sevastopol, and in June 2014 became an adviser to the actual head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov. He Zatulin admitted the day before that really was in the Crimea on 26 February 2014, but noted that no relationship to power had. According to him, together with Glazyev and one of the leaders of the protest in the Crimea, Alexei Chaly, they organized public Foundation “We are all “Berkut”, which helped people affected by the violence of the Kiev authorities.
CIT tracked numerous, according to her, the connection between all defendants in the wiretapping “through various conservative and Pro-Russian organizations (the Union of Orthodox citizens, the Institute of CIS countries)” and came to the conclusion that all the sides Glazyev – Konstantin Zatulin and Kirill Frolov, Valery Kaurov, Denis Yatsyuk, Evgeny Zhilin and Sergey Aksenov took an active part in the events of the spring of 2014 Pro-Russian side.
So, the Internet activists had to “at least 2007″ employee “of the Institute of CIS countries Kirill Frolov, who organized the Glazyev contact with the Odessa activist Denis Yatsyuk, another defendant in wiretapping, Odessa Valery Kaurov. But in the case Kaurov also, there is a mismatch of dates. From the records that the March 1, 2014 Kaurov called to the reception and Glazyev said that together with like-minded people broke into the meeting of the regional Council. However, Odessa edition “Timer” wrote about the fact that this event occurred on 3 March.
CIT gives information from the media about the participation of other defendants in the wiretapping of the events of 2014 in Ukraine, pointing out that “Glazyev’s plan” set forth in the wire, before the Russian troops activists ought to encourage Russian President Vladimir Putin, occupy the regional councils and to force them to accept the request to send troops. But this plan was not implemented fully and at the right time, and the “Crimean scenario” is not repeated in any region of Ukraine, according to the study.
