Talk:Ukraine Crisis Media Center
Joel Harding and the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center?
- Originally posted August 9, 2016
I only recently became familiar with the persona of Joel Harding, "Ukraine's King Troll" after he was shown to be the puppet master of Finland's leading troll hunter bimbos. Harding says he started "Cyber Options in regards to Ukraine" around March 1, 2014. How are Harding's operations related to the Western information operations physically seen in Kiev at the time?
When following news at the time, I noticed that all Western coverage of Ukraine was centered and restricted to the #Euromaidan Press Center, officially know as the "Ukrainian Crisis Media Center". Even government officials would make their statements there. It was however clear that the center was not controlled by Ukrainians or even the coup government but by the foreign backers of the Euromaidan coup. If I remember correctly, the Press Center was located on the third floor of the Hotel Ukraine. From other sources I learnt that this was one floor below the CIA / NATO coordination center for the coup.
ATO press briefings
UCMC used to be my source of Ukrainian spokesman ATO press briefings (when it was still ATO, later replaced/renamed as 'Joint forces operation' 1, 2, 3). There is still a link to them on our Ukrainian news page, as of now, (ATO press releases and maps). --Resup (talk) 07:57, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
