The organization Fethullah Gülen (FETÖ), which the Turkish authorities accused of organizing a failed coup, continues its activities in Ukraine, according to the official Turkish news agency "Anadolu".

"The terrorist organization Fetullaha Gulen (FETÖ) continues its activities in Ukraine in the fields of education, culture, and mass media. It began its operations in the country after the collapse of the USSR and has created a network of "soft power"structures in recent years.”

Since 2001, the terrorist organization has operated in Ukraine as the “Meridian International School” in Kiev, including a primary school. There is also a branch office in Odessa." – the report says.

Agency journalists believe that the participation of the above-mentioned organizations in the cultural and educational life of Ukraine proves the Ukrainian authorities’ loyalty to the Turkish plotters.

Clearly, this is just an excuse to end the alliance with Kiev (Ankara will not quarrel with it but will step aside to please Moscow). It’s clear that apologies will not be accepted, and this is not about a few schools. The decision has been made, and is not subject to appeal, the pretext having been found.
