PORA 'not U.S.-funded'

From The New York Times:

Mr. Yanukovich's supporters, and Russophiles, have portrayed the youth as naïve tools of the West, or as agents of foreign power, saying they have been seeded by the United States and other interests to interfere with Ukrainian political life.

Pora denies this flatly and says accepting foreign aid would undermine the group's local credibility. The American government also says that while it has provided $13.6 million in aid in recent years to encourage fair elections here, Pora has not been sponsored. "We provide zero money, directly or indirectly, to Pora," said an American diplomat in Kiev.
