Newsbud Exclusive – After Nuland, “Nuland”: A. Wess Mitchell Nominated to Direct the U.S. European & Eurasian Affairs

When the assistant U.S. secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs Victoria Nuland resigned her position on January 20, 2017, all those who wanted to see the return to a more stable political order in Europe and the decline of Russophobia or Kremlinoia (as I call it) breathed a sigh of relief. She was perceived by many as the main political instigator of the whole series of the covert efforts to remove and replace top European government officials who did not uncritically accept the principles of Anglo-American geopolitics.

Nuland was best known publicly for her involvement in the Kiev coup against the legitimately elected government of the president Victor Yanukovych. At that time, she was secretly recorded directing the personal make-up of the future Ukrainian government, while, infamously, at one point, referring to the European Union with an expletive.[1]

I have written extensively on Nuland’s intellectual and professional biography and specifically focused on her imperial pro-consul activities in the Balkans in my article “Victoria Nuland & the Balkans” published by BFP in April 2015.[2] At that time, it seemed as if Nuland was on a sure path to becoming the next U.S. secretary of state, because a Democrat (i.e. her long-time ally Hillary Clinton) was greatly favored to win the presidency.
