Shock: U.S. Diplomat Says 'F*** the EU'
A phone call has leaked onto the internet between Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine in which Secretary Nuland says, “F*** the EU” in reference to the organization not doing enough to soothe the nation’s ongoing political turmoil.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has denied that the quote has damaged US-EU relations. Instead, he placed the blame for the leak—and subsequent diplomatic row—on Russia because the Russian government tweeted out a link to the original four minute video shortly after it surfaced on Youtube.
“I think it says something about Russia’s role,” Carney said.
