Transcript:

Hello, This is Vasily Prozorov. Recently, while working with the archive of documentary materials I have accumulated, I came across an interesting audio file.

Why curious? Because this is the interception of a telephone conversation between an employee of the US Embassy in Ukraine and the commander of the Marine Corps battalion of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Delyatitsky, which took place on March 22, 2014. At that time, the security service of Ukraine was still working at the embassy.

Let's go back to the audio recording. Let me remind you the essence of the story. The 1st Naval Infantry Battalion of the Ukrainian Navy was stationed in Feodosia. The Marines, or rather, a small part of them led by the battalion commander, refused to recognize the referendum in Crimea and hesitated for 25 days, choosing which side to take. The Kiev media then simply choked with patriotic frenzy, calling the marines and their commander heroes, praising their resilience in the face of, as they said, the aggressor in every possible way . Real "persons" who did not bow before the occupier.

I think many people remembered this story? And now, I think it will be interesting for you to know that the so-called resilience of the Ukrainian marines battalion was fueled by trivial money.

And, most importantly, American money. Yes, yes, the US Embassy directly transferred money to the battalion fighters. Moreover, they were very significant by the standards of the then Ukraine.
And, in order not to be unfounded, I provide you with just the same audio file that I spoke about at the beginning.

You can find the full version of the conversation on my website. The link will be in the description for the video. By the way, the audio recording very well demonstrates the moral and psychological state of the Ukrainian troops, in fact, abandoned by their command without any intelligible orders. Kiev propagandists like to speculate that the Euromaidan and the events that followed it formed and strengthened the Ukrainian nation,and the war in Donbass gave the Nezalezhnaya a whole galaxy of talented and experienced military leaders, just a "new military elite." After the so-called triumphant exit of the 1st battalion of the marines from the Crimea and the subsequent participation in the ATO, Delyatitsky is also ranked among this type of "new elite". Elite, I want to remind, paid from the United States.

Persons:
Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Delyatitsky
