In the classic film about Watergate, “All the President’s Men,” Deep Throat warns that in unmasking a conspiracy, it is important not to go too fast but rather to build from the outer rings into the center. Otherwise, the conspirators will feel protected, and the possibility that anything will be done to those really responsible is diminished.

And while it is just as obvious now to those with eyes to see that Vladimir Putin has orchestrated the attack on Ukraine and Ukrainians as it was that Richard Nixon organized the break-in and cover-up, it is important to build the case against the Kremlin leader in the same way as it was built against the disgraced American president.

That is now happening.

Valentin Nalivaychenko, the head of the Ukrainian intelligence service, said last night that his officers had statements from those suspected of shooting Ukrainian demonstrators during the Maidan were being directed by Vladislav Surkov, Putin’s closest aide.

In addition, Dmitry Muratov, the editor of “Novaya gazeta,” said on Ekho Moskvy that his paper now has in its possession a document which confirmed that “the plan of war in Ukraine was developed in the administration of the president of Russia,” that is, by Putin’s entourage.

As the Watergate case showed 40 years ago, Putin will still have his defenders much as Nixon did his. But the noose is tightening, and it is long past time to recognize that Putin is guilty as charged whatever his supporters say and that like Nixon he must be stopped before he does any more damage.

The “document shows, Muratov said, that this plan was developed in the Kremlin between February 4 and February 15 of last year, that is before Viktor Yanukovych fled from Kyiv. And it specifies that Russia must intervene in Ukraine lest it lose control of gas pipelines and a major market.

The Kremlin document specifies that Moscow should exploit “the centrifugal strivings of various regions” of Ukraine “with the goal of initiating in one form or another the unification of its eastern oblasts to Russia.” First among these, the document says, according to Muratov, should be Crimea and Kharkiv.

And the Kremlin plan also outlines Russia’s diplomatic strategy. Moscow must insist on talks to “resolve the crisis,” even though it will have been the source of the problem. Moscow must “demand federalization or even confederalization” of Ukraine to block pro-Western groups in that country.

Then, the document says, Crimea and other portions of southeastern Ukraine must then be integrated into the Moscow-dominated customs union and the last step must be their “unification” with Russia, because Russia, its diplomats will argue, “is the only guarantor of economic development and social stability.


At the very least, these developments in the latest “case” should become the occasion for a dramatic expansion in the list of Russian officials who should be prevented from traveling to Western countries. But more than that, it should be the end of those who try to present Putin as an innocent as far as Ukraine is concerned.

As the Watergate case showed 40 years ago, Putin will still have his defenders much as Nixon did his. But the noose is tightening, and it is long past time to recognize that Putin is guilty as charged whatever his supporters say and that like Nixon he must be stopped before he does any more damage.

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

      There are things to say. Things not to say. Things that should be said. Things that are known. That is how diplomacy works. Some times it looks beautiful and good results will come out of it. I agree that this looks very ugly.

      The problem of NATO and the EU is that any one country can block the whole thing. Putin succeeded to buy for example Orban in Hungary. This has destroyed the ideas of a single European market on energy, that would have been a very serious challenge to Putin. In Hungary I think this should count for treason. Syritsa in Greece got support from Putin and now they try to block new sanctions, but have not done that yet, because they need money.

      I am so sorry that this is the reality. It is ugly and meanwhile Ukrainians die in a battle so important for us here in the West. There are countries very supportive of you. Please don’t forget that. My own country gives you quite a lot of help. The Baltic states are very active in your support and so is Poland.

      Don’t underestimate Germany and Merkel. The pacifist stand from Merkel seems almost Chamberlainish, but remember she is German and the daughter of a pacifist priest. I am happy that the Germans want peace, though it really is too much now. However, I am absolutely sure that Merkel no longer believe in ANYTHING said by Putin. Did she ever do that, then those days are over now.

      The EU did after all agree that the members individually can give you weapons. Here we did not, but we did give you money to use on your own arms factories and that does become weapons and for now that is more than the US and many other countries have given to you.

      Personally I write as much as I think that I can to journalists and politicians I know, without pestering them. I hope many more will do that, but I am afraid that few realize the real danger we are in.

      Putin is a perfect example why the world must ensure that terrorists never get nuclear arms. He belongs to the Hague and after that a very, very long life in prison.

      But please remember, that most European countries do support you and feel great sympathy for your struggles, not least Merkel and, I am proud to say, Denmark. And we will NOT forget who helped Putin.

        “The problem of NATO and the EU is that any one country can block the whole thing.”

        And a similar problem with the miserable, dysfunctional social program called “the UN”.
        When the russian apes invaded Georgia, little barackie obola did his liberal/progressive socialist thing and said that that matter should be taken up by the UN. One problem is that russia is a permanent member of the un security council. And so is china, so each has veto power.

        Things like this is why I believe the US should pull out of the UN. And after Crimea and now Ukraine invasions by russia, I think the US should also pull out of nato as it has turned into nothing but a money laundering operation, like the un.

        As for germany, I wonder about merkel. She was born in a russian prison (e. germany) and speaks the language of her former captors.

          Mostly true, but you do know that George Bush was president when Putin invaded Georgia. And he did nothing to help Georgia

          1. Avatar Milton Devonair says:

            But President Bush immediately airlifted Georgian troops fighting in Iraq back to Georgia (with arms) and still sent a US Navy destroyer to deliver “humanitarian items” to Georgia at one of their ports.
            He also only has four months left of his Presidency, a UN war going on in Iraq and a UN war going in in Afghanistan and the liberal/progressive dominated democrat party in the US undermining both wars and his presidency at every opportunity they could.

          2. Avatar Racquel says:

            Neither president did/has done enough. Bush’s efforts were mainly symbolic, as the returning Georgian troops were peacekeeping troops, not combat troops. Obama’s sanctions are hurting Russia’s economy, albeit too slow, but with long-term effects also in terms of future investment, partnerships, trust, etc. Inability to obtain loans needed from falling oil prices. Putin and the Kremlin have been unmasked. Nevertheless, it’s shameful to not honor the BM and arm Ukraine. He better pray it doesn’t spread to a NATO country.

            Bush’s misadventures did serious damage to our country with our allies. American soldiers needlessly died. The, as you say, “Russian apes” were eager to exploit and milk that angle everywhere they could…American imperialist, CIA bull. Obama’s catastrophic Syrian decision damaged us too. I’m no history major but it’d be hard to believe any president has been undermined to the degree Obama has.

            “Bush’s misadventures”
            Which one? Bush vers. 1 that did Gulf War 1 that was enforcing various UN mandates?
            Or Bush 2, that did Gulf War 2 and Afghanistan that enforced the UN mandates?

            Seems to me the problem is the UN, not the US president at the time. OK, maybe the lesson here is that US presidents should ignore the UN. I’d be in favor of that.

            Europeans bash the US all the time, then when they run into trouble, demand cash/military assistance/intervention from the very same country they continually bash.
            US does it, then once crisis is resolved, the US is stuck with more financial/military obligations and the europeans go back to bashing the US for intervening in other countries.

            We still have troops in the balkans and we had to go there because the europeans were too busy spending their money on their own social programs instead of any equipment/personnel to defend their individual country of whatever ‘collective’ of countries they assemble for that week.

            Bush 2. His misadventures in Iraq were/are a complete mess. The war criminals Cheney and Rumsfeld constructed fake reasons to attack a foreign country. It was not a defensive war. It was a “preemptive” war because Sadam supposedly had WMD’s.
            It was a similar violation of international law like the Russians are doing now. A strong nation attacked a weak nation from the position of force, because it could. And you sound like a typical Republican redneck who barely passed high school.

          8. Avatar Milton Devonair says:

            One of the problems with overthrowing a strict, brutal dictatorship is the lack of information one has about the workings of it. Granted, they should have learned in trying “de-nazification” of Germany after WWII, but that was a different generation and usually lessons are lost from generation to generation.

            That nazi party in Germany called it “Gleichschaltung”, but it’s really nothing that special as every dictatorial or governance with a strong central body does it. Unless you belong to The Party, you don’t get the job. You don’t get the education. You don’t get the vacation house. You don’t get your broken water lines fixed. etc.

            So like in Germany, there were “nazis” that were only part of the party because they had to be to get the job. Same with baathists. Same with the communist party in whatever country. And in the US, under obama it’s getting to be the same with the democrat party.

            After the surge and the Sunni Awakening (against Al quaeda in Iraq, now called isis), the UN coalition had won the war and they had a european style parlimentary government in place.

            obama and the democrats ran AGAINST the republicans by bashing the Iraq War and stating how it was a failure, we lost it, etc. So little barack just wanted the success of Iraq to go away, so he walked America away from Iraq. Iran stepped into that power vacuum and it all fell apart. President Bush and his policies won the war. obama and the democrats didn’t care, walked and they lost it. Now they can still use it against the republicans because they can say, “see, I told you we lost the war and it was unwinnable”.
            They did the same thing to Vietnam.

            I’m all in favor of US weapons being sent to Ukraine and always have been. Just got tired of the europeans bashing the US…as they always do, then asking for free things, only to start bashing us again.

            But, the US weapon systems are different than the combloc style ones Ukraine already has. So why aren’t former combloc nations supplying them with weapons they are more familiar with?
            That is the million dollar question.

            “Still praying for someone with fortitude to help Ukraine.”
            I remember seeing videos of people on the beaches in the sea of Azov as there were shelling in the background, ‘far away’.
            Where are ‘the people’ of Ukraine?
            Why aren’t there people lining up, demanding AK-74s, Sniper rifles, RPGs, etc. to defend their country?
            And why isn’t the Ukrainian government handing out these weapons to its citizens?
            If another country invaded the US, you can be d*mned sure there’d be tens of thousands of US citizens going to that spot, carrying their deer rifles/assault rifles and the police/govt would also be handing out weapons to them. I know the national guard would.

            American troops have gotten tired of getting sh*t on by europeans/socialists/liberal/progressives when they go and bail out other countries, they get attacked both abroad and at home/in europe through the media and by their people.

            So there’s a whole lotta “I don’t care” with US Military vets regarding bailing out yet another country, only to be sh*t on as they do it and afterwards. They’ve gotten the proverbial rug pulled out from under them almost every time they’ve became involved in another nations conflicts.

            IMO Ukraine is indifferent and will become like what happened to Georgia–russian apes will take what they want and the population will just be happy to be left alive and alone, living in a smaller, less viable country.

          14. Avatar Milan Schulz says:

            I disagree with your final statement. Ukrainians have a long history of attempting to break their shackles albeit a somewhat unsuccessful one. Russia has been attempting to subjugate and destroy Ukrainian history, culture and language for centuries so I do not think they will go down without a fight. At the moment they are THE ONLY ONES standing up to Putin. They would be lining up for guns if there were guns to line up for, Ukrainian military has been gutted ever since it gained independence 20 odd years ago so enough chatter and send them the advanced weapons that you Merricans are known for!

In the previous two years, the state had each scored a mini-plus of 0.1 percent in 2011 to a deficit of 0.9 percent. Last year, the surplus stood at 0.6 percent.

            Federal state with almost twelve billion euro surplus

            The Maastricht Treaty allowed the Europeans that the annual expenditure of the public revenue must exceed a maximum of three per cent of the total economic output of a country. This brand had pulled most recently in 2010 with minus 4.1 per cent by the German state. By contrast, in 2000, had high non-recurring revenues from the sale of UMTS licenses distorted the surplus.

            This time was the the strong economy with record employment and rising wages accountable for the positive result: It rinsed higher tax revenues and social contributions in the state coffers. From these particularly benefited the federal government, who managed the highest surplus of 11.4 billion euros. 2013 was a deficit of 4.5 billion euros writen to the books. “The countries continued the chosen consolidation route”, said the statisticians. They came to a profit of 1.9 billion euros, the municipalities amounted to 1.3 billion euros. The Social Security reported a profit of 3.4 billion euros. Total available income of 1,293.8 billion euros compared to expenditure of 1,275.8 billion euros.

            As was announced in mid-January, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has the black zero in the federal budget already in 2014, one year earlier than planned due to bubbling tax revenues and lower interest rates. It was the first debt-free household for 45 years.

            EU expects two more years of surpluses

            The European Commission believes that Germany both in the current and next year will be in the black. They expects a surplus of 0.2 percent. The start of the new year ran for the Treasury promising: In January flowed 43.2 billion euros into the coffers of the federal government and states – these are 4.1 percent more than the year before.

            The final quarter saw the domestic economy for most economic momentum. Consumers increased their consumption by 0.8 percent and 0.4 percent of the companies invested more in machinery and equipment. Construction investment also noticeably increased to 2.1 percent. But also caused the foreign trade for pulses. exports grew faster than imports at 1.0 percent with 1.3 percent and boosted the economy.

            The Federal Government is expected this year, an increase of 1.5 percent. This was mainly private consumption should contribute, which is fueled by high employment, rising wages and falling energy prices.”

            You are replying to a two month old comment. You are not really up to date, are you? As for NOVO they raised 50% since 1. January and I have sold mine and cashed in the profit. Have you cashed in your loss on Russian shares? Oh, and NOVO is a Danish company. Denmark is not part of the USA. But again, you seem to be very much not updated. As for the link, we have here the privilege that all kinds of opinions are allowed without going to Siberia for a long time or end up with a bullet outside your home.

        Very heart-warming and intelligent words Mr JensA. Words of reason and honesty must drown out the tireless Russian propaganda machine. I feel Ukraine is not only losing a hot-ground war but is also being trivialized and defamed by Kremlin disinformation
