DISINFO: George Soros will buy all banks and land in Ukraine
There will be a scheme, whereby Soros’ people will give a loan of 500 hryvnias per Ukrainian passport, these people will give up land for them, this land will go into the collateral property of the bank. Accordingly, a person will not be able to repay the loan. At the end, all the land will be in possession of the bank owned by George Soros. Here is the Czech oligarch Tomasz Fiala, his company is part of the Soros structure and it has been touring Ukrainian land for a long time, buying up local banks. At the end, they will possess all black soil.
Conspiracy theory based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about George Soros. The other part of the disinformation message is about the law on the land market, which is currently debated in the Verkhovna Rada.
This legalisation was prepared by Members of Parliament and submitted in October 2019. According to the voting procedure, other MPs have filed their suggestions to the document. The draft law, inter alia, excludes foreigners and foreign companies from buying land and limits the amount of land each person can buy and own. Therefore, the claim in the article that one bank or person could buy a lot of territories in Ukraine is false according to the new proposed law. On the contrary, it is indicated that a single citizen or a company can possess no more than 0.5% of the land in Ukraine.
Regarding the claims about Soros, in reality, the Soros "Open Society Foundation", which is inspired by Karl Popper’s concept of the “open society”, aims 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 in 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 organisation; supported channels like Hromadske TV in independent, live reporting about events on the Maidan; and documented cases of torture, beatings, and police and abuse by the courts.
