Kiev "antiterrorist" forces conducted by Poland’s Jerzy Dziewulski


The "antiterrorist" forces unleashed by Kiev to ward off the independence of Donbass are led by the Pole Jerzy Dziewulski.

Security advisor to former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski (1995-1997) and a member of parliament (1991-2005), Jerzy Dziewulski is a Polish officer who underwent operational training in the United States and worked in Israel.

In this photo taken near Slavjansk last week, he is seen on the left-hand side sitting next to Alexander Turchinov (former intelligence chief who was then Acting President of Ukraine), in the center. The "anti-terrorist" operation was carried out under the supervision of Assistant Secretary of U.S. Defense, Derek Chollet.

Poland played an active role in the Maidan riots: some of the leaders were taking orders from by the Polish representative of the European Union in Kiev, Jan Tombiński, while some of the rioters had received prior training from the Polish police. In addition, Poland had a hand in the coup, for which Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski apparently gave the signal after the 21 February mediation meeting between the opposition and President Yanukovych. Sikorski may be thanked for his role in replacing Baroness Catherine Ashton as High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
