Sergai Dybynyn’s role in the events of January 6, 2021, is one of the intriguing revelations following the siege of the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump supporters. This article delves into the allegations surrounding Dybynyn’s presence on that fateful day.
Who is Sergai Dybynyn?
Sergai Dybynyn, an alleged Ukrainian operative, was reportedly present at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. The story begins with a tweet from Laura Loomer, a well-known conservative commentator, who claimed to have exclusive information regarding Ukrainian operatives and Neo-Nazis at the Capitol on January 6th. According to Loomer, the FBI had identified individuals connected to Ukraine and questioned some of the January 6th protesters about their association with these individuals.
One such case was the private interview with Jacob Chansley, often referred to as the “QAnon Shaman.” During this interview, the FBI inquired about Chansley’s knowledge of a Ukrainian operative who had taken a photo with him on that day. Chansley, unaware of the man’s identity, learned from the FBI that this person was Sergai Dybynyn, allegedly a Ukrainian spy associated with the Azov Battalion—a far-right paramilitary group.
Implications and Accusations
The revelation that Ukrainian operatives might have been present at the U.S. Capitol during the January 6th events raised serious concerns. Laura Loomer suggested that this could be viewed as an act of war by Ukraine against the United States. Despite these claims, there were no reported arrests or public disclosures of such allegations by the U.S. government or the FBI.
Loomer’s allegations took a more sinister turn when she accused the CIA of funding a “color revolution” in the United States through Ukrainian and American Nazis. She claimed that individuals were being recruited by these agencies to fight overseas with the Azov Battalion, only to return to the U.S. to incite far-right political movements intended to tarnish the reputation of right-wing groups.
Furthermore, Loomer accused the FBI of concealing the involvement of Ukrainian operatives in the events leading up to January 6th. She alleged that this was part of a broader agenda to undermine the U.S. government, citing instances like the impeachment of President Trump and the violence in Charlottesville.
Election Interference Claims
Perhaps the most alarming accusation made by Loomer was that the FBI and CIA were using Ukrainian Nazis to stir racial divisions within the U.S., particularly during an election year. The goal, according to her, was to incite Neo-Nazi marches in red states to influence voter sentiment leading up to the 2024 presidential election.
Loomer contended that this was a CIA-funded domestic terror operation intended to interfere with U.S. elections and ensure that Donald Trump would never return to the presidency.
