Victoria Jane Nuland is an American diplomat.

She was the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the United States Department of State under Obama.[1] She served as Vice President Dick Cheney's deputy national security adviser from July 2003 to May 2005. She is married to Robert Kagan, the co-founder of Project for the New American Century.

Joe Biden appointed her as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs in 2021.


Nuland graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall in 1979, has a B.A. from Brown University and is married to neocon ideologue Robert Kagan, with whom she has two children, David and Elena. She is also the daughter of Yale professor Sherwin B. Nuland.

A career Foreign Service officer, Nuland was Principal Deputy National Security Advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney from July 2003 until May 2005, where she worked on 'democracy promotion' in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon and the broader Middle East.

Nuland was the Deputy Permanent Representative to NATO from July 2000 to July 2003. There she was instrumental in NATO's invocation of Article 5 of its charter – "an attack on one ally is an attack on all" – in support of the United States after September 11, 2001. She also worked intensively on the enlargement of the Alliance to include seven new members, the creation of the NATO-Russia Council, NATO's first deployment "out of area" to Afghanistan and its defense of Turkey during the invasion of Iraq.

From 1997 to 1999, she was Deputy Director for former Soviet Union affairs at the United States Department of State, with primary responsibility for U.S. policy towards the Russian Federation and the Caucasus countries. In that capacity, she was awarded the Secretary of Defense's Distinguished Civilian Service medal for her work with the Russians during the Kosovo bombing campaign.

The Nuland "F*** the EU" Phonecall

Full article: Document:A new US puppet government for Ukraine

On February 6, 2014 a recording of a telephone conversation between Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt about the Ukraine Coup, was broadcast on YouTube. Nuland was discussing with Pyatt her plans for the role of the Ukrainian opposition, and she notably remarked "Fuck the EU". She also identified opposition member Arseniy Yatsenyuk as the US preferred leader of the new government which was being prepared, a preferrence which was fulfilled a few weeks later. This has been largely ignored by the commercially-controlled media and attempts have been made to obscure the import of what was leaked.
