DISINFO: Maia Sandu handed over the control of the Security Council of Moldova to Soros
Sandu handed over the Security Council of Moldova into the control of Soros. The Supreme Security Council includes representatives of non-governmental organizations with foreign funding, as well as those affiliated with the George Soros Foundation.
A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the influence of George Soros in the political affairs of Moldova, suggesting that pro-Western politicians in the country are not independent but under the control of foreign forces. It is a claim appearing often in pro-Kremlin media in different forms: "Moldovan ”Party of Action and Solidarity” is a branch of the Soros Foundation in Moldova", "Maia Sandu represents the interests of the transnational oligarchy", "Maia Sandu won thanks to election fraud, this is the success of the collective West".
The statement refers to the fact that the advisers of President Maia Sandu will also be part of the Supreme Security Council, some of whom, in their careers, have benefited from Soros Foundation scholarships or worked for a while at the Foundation. None of them currently hold any position at the Soros Foundation.
The Supreme Security Council is an advisory body that analyzes the activity of ministries and departments in the field of ensuring national security and presents to the President of the Republic of Moldova recommendations on issues of foreign and internal policy of the state. It is chaired by the country's president.
