Gernam the Bild am Sonntag newspaper – one of the most respected newspapers in Germany, citing a source in intelligence community reports that around 400 US Academi (aka blackwater aka greystone) contractors are taking part in Kiev led crackdown on pro-federalization regions in Ukraine.

On April 29, German Intelligence Service (BND) informed Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government about the mercenaries’ participation in the operation, the paper said.

It goes to show that majority of population in southeaster part of Ukraine are against coup-imposed government in Kiev and are seeking greater independence from it. Kiev having little support from locals in southeast turned to foreign mercenaries to bring locals under its control.
