Russia has banned two of George Soros' pro-democracy charities, Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation, designating them "undesirable," and deeming them a threat to both state security and the Russian constitution, according to RFE/RL and Fox News, among others.
Interestingly, the U.S. State Department felt the need to address this action on the part of Moscow in a press statement on November 30, 2015, stating "We are deeply troubled by Russia’s continued restrictions against civil society organizations in Russia. Today’s designation of the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation as so-called “undesirable” organizations will only further restrict the work of civil society in Russia for the benefit of the Russian people. This action is yet another example of the Russian Government’s growing crackdown on independent voices and a deliberate step to further isolate the Russian people from the world."
What does the State Department care what Russia does in the interest of protecting their nation? Has the U.S. been utilizing Soro's groups in order to foster civil unrest across the world in the guise of "charities" and human rights work?
More importantly, since Russian prosecutors started investigating these Soro's groups in July after being flagged by 12 Russian Senators, did they uncover the proof they were looking for proving they were involved in "anti-Russian activities?"
In a statement released on Monday, prosecutors said the activities of the Open Society Institute and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation were a threat to the foundations of Russia’s Constitutional order and national security. They added that the Justice Ministry would be duly informed about these conclusions and would add the two groups to Russia’s list of undesirable foreign organizations.
Prosecutors launched a probe into the activities of the two organizations - both sponsored by the well-known US financier George Soros - in July this year, after Russian senators approved the so-called “patriotic stop-list” of 12 groups that required immediate attention over their supposed anti-Russian activities. Other groups on the list included the National Endowment for Democracy; the International Republican Institute; the National Democratic Institute; the MacArthur Foundation and Freedom House.
In late July, the Russian Justice Ministry recognized the US National Endowment for Democracy as an undesirable group after prosecutors discovered the US NGO had spent millions on attempts to question the legitimacy of Russian elections and tarnish the prestige of national military service.
SOROS HISTORY OF INTERFERENCE IN SOVEREIGN AFFAIRS OF OTHER NATIONS
Reports show Soros has been a longtime proponent of "outside interference," and the "right to penetrate" sovereign nations, as WND highlights in 2011, when the original plans to attack syria were exposed.
Soros himself outlined the fundamentals of Responsibility to Protect in a 2004 Foreign Policy magazine article entitled “The People’s Sovereignty: How a New Twist on an Old Idea Can Protect the World’s Most Vulnerable Populations.”
In the article, Soros said “true sovereignty belongs to the people, who in turn delegate it to their governments.”
“If governments abuse the authority entrusted to them and citizens have no opportunity to correct such abuses, outside interference is justified,” Soros wrote. “By specifying that sovereignty is based on the people, the international community can penetrate nation-states’ borders to protect the rights of citizens.
A little trip down memory lane shows that George Soros groups have been connected to almost all countries the U.S. has interfered in, ousting leaders from Egypt to Ukraine, Libya and now Syria,
Though many pundits see the Egyptian military's dissolving of parliament and the suspension of the nation's constitution as a step backwards for the protesters, it was exactly these steps that were demanded by ElBaradei's mobs according to the Nation Endowment for Democracy (NED) fundedProject on Middle East Democracy. The fact that George Soros, a fellow ICG trustee along side protest leader Mohamed ElBaradei, is funding organizations that have submitted drafts for Egypt's new constitution adds insult to injury to the evisceration of Egypt's national sovereignty.
It turns out that the new Egyptian Constitution has already been drafted, not by the Egyptian people, but by the very US-backed protesters who brought about regime change in the first place. A Reuters reportquoted an opposition judge, who had been hiding-out in Kuwait until Mubarak's ousting, as having said civil society groups had already produced several drafts and a new constitution could be ready in a month.
These "civil society" groups include the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information openly funded by George Soros' Open Society Institute and the Neo-Con lined NED funded Egyptian Organization for Human Rights. It appears that while the International Crisis Group may be turning out the strategy, and their trustee ElBaradei leading the mobs into the streets, it is the vast array of NGOs their membership, including Soros, fund that are working out and implementing the details on the ground.
Philanthropist billionaire George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the global organization that promotes the military doctrine used by the Obama administration to justify the recent airstrikes targeting the regime of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya.
The activist who founded and coined the name of the doctrine, "Responsibility to Protect," sits on several key organizations alongside Soros.
Also, the Soros-funded global group that promotes Responsibility to Protect is closely tied to Samantha Power, the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights.
Hacked Emails Expose George Soros As Ukraine Puppet-Master - Zero Hedge
In 3 stunning documents, allegedly hacked from email correspondence between the hedge fund manager and Ukraine President Poroshenko, Soros lays out "A short and medium term comprehensive strategy for the new Ukraine,"expresses his confidence that the US should provide Ukraine with lethal military assistance, “with same level of sophistication in defense weapons to match the level of opposing force," and finally explained Poroshenko's "first priority must be to regain control of financial markets," which he assures the President could be helped by The Fed adding "I am ready to call Jack Lew of the US Treasury to sound him out about the swap agreement."
Those leaked emails were put on SCRIBD by Zero Headge and are embedded below after asking "One wonders what other matters of national importance involve George Soros getting on the line with the US Treasury Secretary to arrange virtually unlimited funds courtesy of the US Federal Reserve just to promote one person's ulterior agenda?
Soros Foundation’s Ukraine branch, International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) has been involved in Ukraine since 1989. His IRF doled out more than $100 million to Ukrainian NGOs two years before the fall of the Soviet Union, creating the preconditions for Ukraine’s independence from Russia in 1991. Soros also admitted to financing the 2013-2014 Maidan Square protests that brought the current government into power.
George Soros, along with the U.S. government has had a hand in almost every instance of interference in other nation's sovereignty, ousting their duly elected leaders, with Soros "charity" groups "coincidentally" being involved in each of those countries prior to said nations suffering massive upheavel, unrest, with many subsequently being invaded by terror groups.
This latest action by Moscow of banning the two Soros charities, especially given the State Department feeling compelled to issue a public press release in response, indicates once again that either Soros is directly working with the U.S. government to destabilize and perhaps attempt to oust Russia President Vladimir Putin, or the more ominous theory that George Soros is the puppet master behind all the events destabilizing countries across the globe and has been busted attempting to do the same thing in Russia.
The Soros destruction campaign includes the U.S. as we see the recent report from Breitbart that "A group masquerading as conservative but backed by left-wing foundations including billionaire George Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society (FPOS) has launched an online advertising campaign in defense of bringing Syrian refugees to the United States."
As seen on InfoWars from over a month ago, these two Soros groups are simply the latest groups with Soros ties to be banned in Russia.
Looks like Russia is cleaning house before it becomes the next Egypt, Libya, Ukraine... etc....
