The Secret Force Behind the Anti-Russian Narrative

William Browder is a hedge fund manager with a long and complicated history with Russia.

He’s also a key player in the push against the country after running afoul of its government, according to Russian authorities, who convicted him of tax fraud after trying him in absentia. Although at one point he called Putin his ‘biggest ally’ after massive business dealings in the region, his mood has shifted drastically after a complicated series of affairs which we’re still in the process of untangling.

Key to this situation is the Magnitsky Act, which are sanctions directed against Russia by the US after the death in prison of Sergei Magnitsky. The late Magnitsky, who has been called an auditor, accountant, and attorney for Bill Browder, died under uncertain circumstances, with some calling his death a murder, and some calling it an act of negligence typical to prisons like the one in which he was held.

Thankfully we had the help of Lucy Komisar. A recent guest on Fault Lines, Komisar has a long history of researching crimes in high finance. She recently wrote a key article detailing a series of allegations of illegal activities conducted by Browder and his associates.

We’re working on a detailed guide to the story of Browder, the Magnitsky Act, and his relationship with the anti-Russian narrative. We’ll have more on that soon!

New Evidence of Chalupa Sisters Involvement in Ukrainian Coup

February 2014 Ukranian Weekly article documents coordinated #DigitalMaidan Twitter storms targeting President Viktor Yanukovych

The Ukrainian Weekly (Feb. 2014) – Twitter storms buffet global DigitalMaidan efforts

One such event organized by the DigitalMaidan has been the weekly – and now almost daily – Twitter “storms” that have bombarded television stations, newspapers, celebrities, high-profile individuals, as well as government officials, with information about Ukraine’s protests through “tweets.”

As a result of these storms, with premade messages released on the day of the storm to adjust to the changing environment of the Euro-Maidan, these tweets have been re-Tweeted by celebrities, including Russell Brand, Richard Branson, Vera Farmiga, Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault of France, the band Pussy Riot, chess master Garry Kasparov and others.

The project got off the ground on Monday, January 20, following a Twitter exchange between two socially conscious and tech-savvy Ukrainian Americans, Lara Chelak and Andrea Chalupa, who messaged Ina Kirsch, managing director for the European Center for a Modern Ukraine, which is President Viktor Yanukovych’s lobbying arm in Europe. Ms. Chelak and Ms. Chalupa let Ms. Kirsch know that she has blood on her hands following the shooting deaths of Euro-Maidan protesters in Ukraine.

In Washington, Alexandra Chalupa, Andrea’s sister, works on coordinating the information for Congress, the White House and Ukrainian disapora organizations in the area.
