In his United Nations speech today, President Obama claimed he wanted peace but then blamed Russia for encouraging the deaths of thousands in Ukraine, escalating current tensions between the U.S. and Russia which could lead to war.
The president evoked memories of both world wars when he accused Russia of trampling a neighboring country “in pursuit of territorial ambition.”
“Russia poured arms into Eastern Ukraine, fueling violent separatists and a conflict that has killed thousands,” Obama asserted. “When a civilian airliner was shot down from areas that these proxies controlled, they refused to allow access to the crash for days.”
“When Ukraine started to reassert control over its territory, Russia gave up the pretense of merely supporting the separatists, and moved troops across the border.”
Yet back in May, billionaire activist George Soros claimed responsibility for creating the atmosphere in Ukraine that led to the overthrow of the country’s elected leader and the installation of politicians handpicked by the U.S. State Department.
Soros’ admittance came during an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.
“First on Ukraine, one of the things that many people recognized about you was that you during the revolutions of 1989 funded a lot of dissident activities, civil society groups in eastern Europe and Poland, the Czech Republic. Are you doing similar things in Ukraine?” Zakaria asked Soros.
“Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia, and the foundation has been functioning ever since and played an important part in events now,” Soros responded.
Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Soros became actively involved in the politics of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, using multiple non-government organizations with ties to the CIA to spark color revolutions in former Soviet countries.
“Billionaire investor/activist George Soros has a giant footprint in Ukraine,” wrote journalist William F. Jasper. “Similar to his operations in dozens of other nations, he has, over the past couple of decades, poured tens of millions of dollars into Ukrainian non-governmental organizations (NGOs), ostensibly to assist them in transforming their country into a more ‘open’ and ‘democratic’ society.”
“Many of the participants in Kiev’s “EuroMaidan” demonstrations were members of Soros-funded NGOs and/or were trained by the same NGOs in the many workshops and conferences sponsored by Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation (IRF), and his various Open Society institutes and foundations.”
“George Soros is all about management by ‘experts,’ i.e. central planning, the hallmark of every socialist, fascist, or communist regime,” Jasper added. “In fact, he is one of the planet’s premier advocates of global central planning and control.”
In summary, Soros, motivated by a desire to subvert Ukraine’s national sovereignty for integration into the centrally-planned European Union, holds more responsibility than anyone for the conflict in Ukraine, but Obama is blaming Russia as part of an overall strategy to geopolitically isolate Moscow.
