You're reading: ‘Fuck the EU,’ frustrated Nuland says to Pyatt, in alleged leaked phone call (UPDATE)
Popular
on social media

The woman, who sounds like Nuland, can be heard on the recording saying “fuck the EU,” while the man, who sounds like  Pyatt, refers to Vitali Klitschko as the “top dog” among opposition leaders but implies that Klitschko is too inexperienced to hold a top government post.

The Kyiv Post could not verify the authenticity of the conversation. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv had no comment today, but said that Nuland might address the issue during a press conference in Kyiv on Feb. 7. 

The Associated Press, citing a State Department official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter, said the audio sounds like an authentic recording of a call that occurred last week.
