Summary of Disinformation

George Soros destabilises states in order to provoke civil wars like Euromaidan in Ukraine

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation claiming  George Soros aims to destabilise countries and topple regimes in post-communist  Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. See here for similar cases.

In reality Soros’ Open Society Foundations [OSF] - which are inspired by Karl Popper’s concept of the “open society” - aim to promote civil society, the rule of law, human rights and liberal democracy  around the world by funding civil society groups.

The International Renaissance Foundation, a Ukrainian NGO founded by Soros,  played an important role supporting civil society during the Euromaidan protests. The foundation ensured that legal aid was made available throughout the crisis to civic activists, protesters, and journalists; supplied victims of violence with medical care; enabled civil society solidarity and organization; supported channels like Hromadske TV in independent, live reporting about events on the Maidan; and documented cases of torture, beatings, and police and courts abuse.
