Disinfo: Soros plunges countries into chaos and anarchy

Summary

The activities of Soros and its affiliates have not brought happiness, prosperity, stability and development to any country in the world. The “achievement” of this fund and its local subsidiaries was the fact that these countries were plunged into chaos and anarchy in a very short period of time. This has already become the golden rule of history. Realities and examples are not far away, but around us. These realities are not a distant history, but a picture of today. Soros is Donbas and Luhansk, lost to Ukraine. Soros is Crimea’s surprise to Kiev. Soros is today’s Yerevan, where people eat each other’s flesh. Soros is Kyrgyzstan, which has ravaged the country from the inside and turned it into a hotbed of revolutions. Soros is a FETO aimed at destroying Turkey from within. Finally, Soros is a national council that mourns the liberation of Karabakh today and welcomes the restoration of our territorial integrity with a black flag.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative about George Soros.

Multiple pro-Kremlin media outlets have accused George Soros (without evidence) of a wide range of sins such as destabilising Europe, organising colour revolutions, attacking churches and traditional values as well as sponsoring the film "Joker" as a tutorial for colour revolutions. See our article on the all-powerful Mr Soros.

There is no evidence that Soros was behind the recent outbreak of tensions in the Nagorno-Karabakh region or that he is aiming to destroy Turkey from within.

George Soros is a philanthroper who established the Open Society Foundations in 1989. These foundations are the world’s largest private funder of independent groups working for democratic governance and human rights and fund different type of projects. They have financed projects on many different topics such as democratic practice, higher education, journalism and so on.

Regarding Donbas and Luhansk, the EU has condemned the clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since February 2014. In addition, Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted in 2015 Russia's military presence in Ukraine.

See similar cases connected to the War in Donbas: Germany, France and Ukraine admitted that they need a war in Donbas, Russia isn’t and wasn’t involved in the Donbas conflict and Moscow did not interfere in the armed conflict in Donbas.

Russia is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict

In April 2014, the Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation against the self-proclaimed LPR and DPR, which declared independence after the coup d’etat in Ukraine in February of the same year. According to the latest UN data, about 13 thousand people became victims of the conflict. Kyiv has repeatedly accused the Russian Federation of intervening in the conflict in the region. Russia denies these charges. Moscow has stated more than once that it is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and is interested in seeing Kyiv overcome the political and economic crisis.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine, attempting to portray it as a civil war.

There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in eastern Ukraine.

There is no doubt Russia has total sovereignty over the Kuril Islands

According to the resolution taken in 1945, the Kuril Islands became part of the Soviet Union. Today, the US State Department puts the results of World War II into question and encourages a tendency for revenge (By requesting Russian citizens born in the Kuril Islands to obtain an American residence permit).

Moscow insists that the aforementioned islands have become part of the Soviet Union legally, based on the results of the Second World War, and are part of Russia’s territory as the successor to the Soviet Union, noting that Russia’s sovereignty over the four islands is not questionable.

Disproof

Japan has disputed Russian ownership of the Northern Territories / Southern Kurils since the end of World War II.

The Island chain referred to as the Kuril Islands stretches northeast from Japan’s main northern island of Hokkaido to Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula.

Sweden supports Russia on Crimea

Sweden supports Russian on the ownership of Crimea. Crimea was always Russian. This view predominates in Sweden, says billionaire Dan Sten Olsson. According to the businessman, this view in only not supported by NATO.

Disproof

A recurrent claim on Crimea’s status and a false statement on Sweden’s position on the illegal annexation of Crimea.

Mr. Olsson is the head of a Swedish transnational corporation with large trade with Russia. He did express support Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea in an interview with the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, but the claim was a personal view of Mr. Olsson. The businessman does not suggest that his views are representative for neither Swedish business circles, nor among Swedes in general.
