Soros first expelled from Austria, then from Hungary
A year ago, on October 22, the Russian edition pravda.ru spread a report that Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz gave the Open Society Foundation, established by American financier and philanthropist George Soros, 28 days in closing. In case of disobedience, the foundation was threatened with lawsuits.
Chancellor explained this kind of demarche as follows: the foundation is trying to destroy the foundations of democracy in the country. Moreover, Kurtz called the situation critical, stressing that Soros is striving with all his might to achieve political influence and global control. We should note that this is not the first time when the foundation is declared “persona non grata”.
The Open Society Foundation has been operating since 1984 at the expense of billionaire Soros. Today it has its offices in more than 30 countries of the world, including Armenia.
The organization seeks to formally finance projects in the field of human rights, culture, arts, journalism and several other areas, and the Foundation’s Charter emphasizes that it is not aimed at obtaining material benefits. However, actually, who is George Soros?
This major financial figure, who was born in Hungary after World War II, then settled in the United States and made a huge fortune, for 34 years he has invested about 32 billion dollars in different countries of the world. This gives many grounds to call Soros a patron. However, the "evil tongues" claim that the elderly billionaire has his own ideas about democracy, primarily aimed at interfering in the political processes taking place in different countries.
Ukraine, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan... It is no secret that the Open Society Foundations have made a significant contribution to the implementation of the color revolutions in these post-Soviet republics. In 1999, in Russia, the foundation almost openly financed the parliamentary election campaign of the opposition Yabloko party.
It is not surprising that on November 30, 2015, the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation declared the Open Society Foundation an undesirable organization in the territory of the Russian Federation.
This year, in May 2018, Soros had to make a decision to move his office from his native Budapest to Berlin. This happened after Victor Orban once again celebrated victory in the national elections and became Prime Minister. The latter was one of the sharp critics of Soros and the structures funded by him, accusing him of financing the Hungarian liberal opposition and promoting illegal immigration.
Naturally, this decision did not particularly inspire Germany, which is currently practically paralyzed due to the huge influx of immigrants into the country.
