What's Behind the "Peacekeeper" Killings in Ukraine? [Updates]

Killings of Anti-Maidan activists of late have been in the international news, but a suspicious "Peacekeeper" website has watchers searching NATO and other connections. Here's a report on the latest Western policy "rabbit hole". [See Updates]

News today tells of an Ukrainian nationalist group claiming responsibility for the murders of two public figures in Kiev earlier this week. However gripping and telling Journalist Oles Buzyna being killed by masked gunmen outside his home on Thursday, though, greater implications exist. We have news of something called the "Ukranian Insurgent Army" accepting responsibility, but several deaths in Ukraine these past days appear linked to fictitious trolls, Maidan officials, OSCE strategies, and worse still, foreign embassies and NATO.

Update One: The twitter of "Peacemaker" shows a somewhat telling Twitter habit of first following the people most significant to the account intent. In the initial stages of account use, Petro Poroshenko made good sense; however, following the CIA and the United States Department of Defense, along with the FBI, is a curious new Twitter user connect. See the image below.

Update Two: The team at "Peacemaker" has apparently rebooted the website with rerouted server connections. More exactly, the shutdown of the site was utilized to simply "rename" the NATO server final destination. The owners of the site have made an attempt to "explain" the interruption, which ignores the fact NATO.int was captured by many. I've inserted the latest CMD trace beneath the NATO capture below. As you can see the routes are identical save the renaming of the destination.

Update April 20, 2015: Futher investigations have turned up connective linkages in between the Peacemaker website, the hosting servers and host affiliates, key Maidan figures mentioned below, US NGOs, and probable funding for "peacebuilding" by the British Embassy, Washington think tank USIP, and other USIP investitures in Georgia and Chechnya. I've passed the information to our colleagues, but suffice it to say a network comprised of dingbats and unwitting do-gooders have been funded (or supported) by a variety of sources outside Kiev either directly, or indirectly. (End of Update)

Stay tuned for a followup report. The image above directly connects the Ukrainian Peacemaking School, the British Embassy in Kiev, the German Foreign Ministry, and our Webby host of "Peacemaker" via Natiliya's and other principals' close connectedness.  

Despite whatever is true or false in this spree of revelations these past 24 hours, it’s certain that what’s beneath the Euronews and RT stories today is far more disturbing. Here’s a tad bit cynical, ultimately questioning, and possibly gripping, revelation of things you probably do not yet know about these assassinations.

Trying to process the mountain of information streaming into our offices today over the so-called “Peacekeeper” website, alleged to contain “kill lists” and assignments by some news and even policy experts, has been a daunting task. Approaching the whole from two angles, social media and the comments trail, we found out some curious and potentially game-changing information. The linkages, technicalities, and ultimately, the gravity of “Peacekeeper”are spellbinding. This tweet, the most chilling of all, hints at Russians as upcoming targets.

Set amid the utter strangeness that is internet life, the domain Russia Today spotlighted this potential “hit list" along with the rest of us yesterday. For the newcomer, some activists opposed to the current Ukraine regime have been either assassinated gangland style or some say "suicided" to close out their initiatives. A website that's been focused on this list, which is now down, is at the center of the latest conspiratorial epic. 

While the “Peacekeeper” website appears to have been shut down at the servers in Texas, the Twitter feed of the ‘Mirotvorec’ (Peacekeeper) bunch remains intact, and virulently trollish in its behavior. However creepy or crooked any of this might seem, tracking down the website ownership, servers and such, gets even stickier. The domain is apparently on servers in Dallas, Texas, U.S., and owned by a woman (?) named - now get this - Ophelia Dingbatter. It is in this alias or true (however crazy) identity created in 2009, that we see inside this “rabbit hole” of a Ukraine network.

You don’t have to be a dingbat or a rocket scientist to figure that a hoochie-looking Canadian, with the El Cheapo photoshopped face, is a concoction connected with Maidan. Her (its) Facebook profile is “friended” by Viktor Garbar, the System Administrator at Maidan Monitoring Information Center; Nataliya Zubar, the chairperson of the same organization; and many other interesting personalities. Of the latter, Ms. Zubar says she helped set up the agenda for the Ukraine OSCE contingent. I don't have the time, nor the inclination, to track down all these people, but it’s gripping to study the profiles of this “sect” of Maidan fans. A large part of the friends of the ravishing Ophelia are American biker-nazi dudes and tattoo crazy bimbos from the heartland of the good ol’ U.S. mixed in with a good portion of my fellow Americans left out by the system. All in all, this is a Facebook friendship list Langley could not have chosen better themselves.

Whether Ophelia is real or an imaginary woman from up there in Canada, I am sure even the most obtuse biker dude, the out of work factory worker, or NATO’s biggest support cowboys cannot discern. I have not the time or inclination to track down all of these people, but a webserver expert named @dearwebby, and a Netherlands tweep @NicheCompanion interested in Ukraine, do seem most interesting fans of her social presence.

One can tell a lot about profiles going back to when they were created, and if dear Ophelia here was intended to be some Internet spy or other, apparently Maidan could have been planned as early as 2009. That is conjecture, sure, but lists of people ending up dead are often police leads, no? The fact is that the domain registered to Ophelia for the website in question was originally bought by our Webby up there. Note the email address in the screen below.

Let me just list the organizations and societal elements Kiev’s mysterious dingbat has engaged. I say Kiev’s tentatively, in case the Maidan people actually engaged a real person in Canada to buy a domain in Texas; anything is possible these days. Which brings me to another potential question: “What if all this is some spook mission, a CIA or State Department deep cover assignment?”

Hmm... on to the friends of this dingbat, which include: Indiana's Right To Work, employees of various colleges like South Shields Marine & Technical College, the National Sales Director at SnapOn Tools Africa, about 40 more individuals who say they graduated from my own “school of hard knocks” and a few dozen listed as CEOs of something called “self employed”.  To tell the truth, I feel for the people who unwittingly attached themselves to what appears to be a network formed for propaganda purposes. The way Facebook works, it's fairly easy to be fooled by "would be" friends.

Lastly, if one considers “friends” and associations meaningful at all, the aforementioned Maidan official, Nataliya Zubar, is now at an organization in Kharkov known as the Ukrainian Peacekeeping School. According to this announcement, the “school” gets help from none other than the British Embassy in Ukraine, this Polish NGO, Maidan Org, and others I found within just a couple of minutes. What’s even more implicative in all this is research done by my colleague, Holger Eekhof, operating in Germany’s Zeit, which turned up further research into tracing this Internet “hit list” conspiracy.

End case in point is found at PolitRussia in a tracert (above) of the site psb4ukr.org where, as you can see, the British Embassy in Ukraine is joined in loose association with Maidan, and by NATO and the suspected “hit list” site. If ever there was a reason for The New York Times to break out its investigative team, today would seem like it. Running the traceroute now reveals that the route is blocked for me at Deutsche Telekom (as seen below).

And Radio Free Europe was so pleased to announce Putin trolls in St. Petersburg (true or false). Russia Insider is pleased to report a poster girl NATO troll who’s captivated the minds and hearts of the marginalized in America and the world, no doubt to convince them of the naked truth.

If it is the case that NATO and the US State Department are in cahoots with assassins tasked by Kiev or subversives associated with something called “peacekeeping”, the concept is pretty hideous, no matter what.

Well, as we recall, the Wild West solution to such skullduggery involved something called a Colt Peacemaker.
