What we have here are correspondences taken from billionaire and naturalized American speculator, George Soros. The hacker group, CyberBerkut, has published letters online that they claim were written by Soros. These letters reveal him as puppet master of the US-backed Ukraine regime.
His machinations with the US Government and the officials of the European Union can be further understood in a scheme where he could gain billions of dollars in the plundering of Ukraine assets at the expense of Ukrainian citizens and of EU taxpayers.
In the longest memo, dated March 15, 2015 and marked “Confidential,” Soros outlines a detailed map of actions for the Ukraine regime.
Entitled, “A short and medium-term comprehensive strategy for the new Ukraine.” The memo from Soros calls for steps to, “restore the fighting capacity of Ukraine without violating the Minsk agreement.”
Soros blatantly notes that, “General Wesley Clark, Polish General Skrzypczak and a few specialists under the auspices of the Atlantic Council [emphasis added—f.w.e.], will advise President Poroshenko how to restore the fighting capacity of Ukraine without violating the Minsk agreement.”
Soros also calls for supplying lethal arms to the Ukraine and secretly training Ukrainian army personnel in Romania to avoid a direct NATO presence in Ukraine. The Atlantic Council is a leading Washington pro-NATO think tank.
Notably, Wesley Clark is also a business associate of Soros in BNK Petroleum which does business in Poland.
Clark was the NATO General in charge of the 1999 bombing of Serbia. He had ordered NATO soldiers to fire on Russian soldiers guarding the Pristina International Airport. The Russians were there as a part of an agreed joint NATO–Russia peacekeeping operation supposed to police Kosovo.
The British Commander General Mike Jackson, refused Clark, retorting, “I’m not going to start the third World War for you.” Clark apparently decided to come out of retirement for the chance to have his crazed revenge against Russia directly.
Naked Asset Grab
In his March 2015 memo, Soros further writes that Ukrainian President Poroshenko’s, “first priority must be to regain control of financial markets,” which he assures Poroshenko that Soros would be ready to assist with: “I am ready to call Jack Lew of the US Treasury to sound him out about the swap agreement.”
He also calls on the EU to give the Ukraine an annual aid sum of €11 billion via a special EU borrowing facility. Soros proposes, in effect, using the EU’s “AAA” top credit rating to provide risk insurance for investments into Ukraine.
Whose risk would the EU insure? Soros details, “I am prepared to invest up to €1 billion in Ukrainian businesses. This is likely to attract the interest of the investment community. As stated above, Ukraine must become an attractive investment destination.” Not to leave any doubt, Soros continues, “The investments will be for-profit but I will pledge to contribute the profits to my foundations. This should allay suspicions that I am advocating policies in search of personal gain.”
How very noble of you Soros… funding your foundations with Ukrainian loot, insured by the EU in the inevitable event that everything goes down the crapper and then using said foundations to line your pockets and advance your agenda.
Historically, Soros’ Open Society foundation had convinced former soviet countries to open up their economies immediately to the free-market rather than gradually. This allowed him to come in and gobble up assets, profiting handsomely.
In West Africa, George Soros backed a former Open Society employee of his, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. He gave her international publicity and, through his influence, even arranged a Nobel Peace Prize for her in 2011, guaranteeing her election as president. Before her presidency she had been well-indoctrinated into the Western free-market game, studying economics at Harvard and working for the US-controlled World Bank in Washington, and the Rockefeller Citibank in Nairobi. Before becoming Liberia’s President, she worked for Soros directly as chair of his Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA).
Once in office, President Sirleaf opened the doors for Soros to take over major Liberian gold and base metals assets along with his partner, Nathaniel Rothschild. One of her first acts as president was to also invite the Pentagon’s new African Command, AFRICOM, into Liberia whose purpose as a Liberian investigation revealed was to, “protect George Soros and Rothschild mining operations in West Africa rather than champion stability and human rights.”
Naftogaz, The Target
Soros is eyeing the Ukrainian state gas and energy monopoly, Naftogaz. He writes, “The centerpiece of economic reforms will be the reorganization of Naftogaz and the introduction of market pricing for all forms of energy, replacing hidden subsidies…”
In an earlier letter, written in December of 2o14, Soros wrote to both President Poroshenko and Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, openly calling for his ‘Shock Therapy’: “I want to appeal to you to unite behind the reformers in your government and give your wholehearted support to a radical, ‘big bank’ type of approach. That is to say, administrative controls would be removed and the economy would move to market prices rapidly rather than gradually…Naftogaz needs to be reorganized with a big bank replacing the hidden subsidies…”
Splitting Naftogaz into separate companies could allow Soros to take control of one of the new branches and essentially privatize its profits. He already suggested that he indirectly brought in US consulting company, McKinsey, to advise Naftogaz on the privatization and the “big bank.”
Soros Shapes The ‘New Ukraine’
Today the CyberBerkut-hacked papers show that Soros’ IRF money is behind the creation of a National Reform Council, a body organized by presidential decree from Poroshenko which allows the Ukrainian president to push bills through Ukraine’s legislature. Soros writes, “The framework for bringing the various branches of government together has also emerged. The National Reform Council (NRC) brings together the presidential administration, the cabinet of ministers, the Rada and its committees and civil society. The International Renaissance Foundation which is the Ukrainian branch of the Soros Foundations was the sole financial supporter of the NRC, until now…”
Soros’ NRC, in effect, is the vehicle to allow the president to override parliamentary debate to push through “reforms” with the declared first priority being privatization of Naftogaz, and raising gas prices drastically to Ukrainian industry and households, something the bankrupt country can hardly afford.
In his letter to Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk, Soros hints that he played a key role in the selection of three key non-Ukrainian ministers: Natalia Jaresko, a former American State Department official, as Finance Minister; Aivras Abromavicius of Lithuania, as Economics Minister and a health minister from Georgia. Soros, in his December 2014 letter referring to his proposal for a “big bank” privatization of Naftogaz and price rises, states, “You are fortunate to have appointed three ‘new Ukrainian’ ministers and several natives (sic) who are committed to this approach.”
“It is essential for the government to produce a visible demonstration (sic) during the next three months in order to change the widely prevailing image of Ukraine as an utterly corrupt country.” That, he states, will open the EU to make the €11 billion insurance guarantee investment fund.
While saying that it is important to show that the Ukraine, as a country, is not corrupt, Soros reveals he has little concern when transparency and proper procedures block his agenda. Talking about his proposals to reform Ukraine’s constitution to enable privatizations and other Soros-friendly moves, he complains, “The process has been slowed down by the insistence of the newly elected Rada on proper procedures and total transparency.”
George Soros, now 84, was born in Hungary into a Jewish family. Soros once boasted in a TV interview that he posed during the war as a Gentile with forged papers, assisting the Horthy government to seize the property of other Hungarian Jews who were being shipped to the Nazi death camps. Soros told the TV moderator, “There was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would.”
This is the same morality behind Soros’ activities in Ukraine today. It seems, again, to matter not to him that the Ukrainian government he helped bring to power in a February 2014 US coup d’etat is riddled with explicit antisemites and self-proclaimed neo-Nazis from the Svoboda Party and Pravy Sektor.
