DISINFO: Moldova has a government from Soros


Moldova has a government from [George] Soros. The new government, as expected, turned out to come from the forge of cadres of "Western partners", including Gavrilita herself (the Prime Minister), who served as the CEO at the Global Innovation Fund.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about American philanthropist George Soros, as a person controlling many governments in Eastern Europe as well as being responsible for a whole array of sins around the world.

This narrative has been resumed in the context of Moldova after the creation, on 8 August 2021 of a new pro-European government in the country. The government formed by Natalia Gavrilita, a representative of the pro-presidential party, is presented as being entirely under external control, especially of George Soros. As the only 'proof', the article uses the fact that many members of the government worked in NGOs that received grants from the Soros Foundation or received scholarships from that foundation.

See here a similar case claiming that Moldova is captured with the help of Soros grants and here a case presenting the Party of Action and Solidarity as "a branch of the Soros Foundation in Moldova". Here find an analysis of narratives about George Soros.
