The Anti-Russian machinations of George Soros by Wayne Madsen

The Anti-Russian machinations of George Sorosby Wayne Madsen

There is a reason for Russian President Vladimir Putin enjoying a whopping 88 percent favorable rating among the Russian people. Putin's success is mostly a result of his steering Russia away from disastrous neo-conservative/Milton Friedman policies brought about by the interference at all levels of Russian politics and economics from post-Soviet minions sent to Russia by George Soros in the early 1990s. The marching orders for hundreds of Soros operatives, most of whom were working under NGO cover, were clear: ensure that Russia never again poses a threat to Western domination over the Eurasian land mass.

Under an incompetent and often-drunk president, Boris Yeltsin, and a corrupt prime minister, Viktor Chernomyrdin, Russia experienced the wholesale sell-off to unscrupulous Russian businessmen state-owned assets of the Soviet Union and Russian Federation. Many of the businessmen who bought government assets at kopeks to the ruble became overnight billionaires. Later, these businessmen, many of whom arranged for second passports from Israel and the United Kingdom, became known as the "oligarchs." The "great Russian ripoff" was the result of the work of the Gore-Chernomyrdin Commission, which was created out of an agreement between Yeltsin and U.S. President Bill Clinton.

Under a program developed by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Harvard Institute for International Development (HIID) was given primary responsibility for transforming Russia's state economy to private enterprise. USAID was already working closely with George Soros's Open Society Institute (OSI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to turn Russia into a free-market Eurasian version of a quasi-dictatorial Latin American republic.

Under the aegis of HIID's Harvard Project, led by Harvard economics professor Andrei Shleifer with the assistance of Larry Summers, Russia's economy underwent "shock therapy." Another shock therapist who advised the Yeltsin-Chernomyrdin regime was Columbia University economics professor Jeffrey Sachs. These neo-con professors applied the same sort of shock therapy, based on unbridled capitalism, not seen since Friedman forced post-Allende Chile, under the military dictator Augusto Pinochet, to adopt his destructive uber-capitalist policies. While Shleifer, a dual Russian-American citizen, advised the deputy prime minister Anatoly Chubais on the sale of state property and was put in charge of Rosimushchestvo (the Committee for the Management of State Property), Sachs advised Prime Minister Yegor Gaidar and Finance Minister Boris Fedorov on transforming Russia from a socialist society to a world-class capitalist market showcase. The Gore-Chernomyrdin Commission and HIID saw the city of Nizhny Novgorod as a testing ground for their libertarian economic policies that earned praise from former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The governor of Nizhny Novgorod who eagerly instituted Harvard's shock therapy was Boris Nemtsov, recently assassinated in Moscow by parties suspected of trying to bring about a violent Ukraine-style "themed revolution" in Moscow. The themed revolution concept, created by University of Massachusetts professor Gene Sharp, has been adopted as a primary tactic by Soros and the CIA to force regime changes around the world.

Nemtsov's "success" in Nizhny Novgorod earned him an appointment as First Deputy Prime Minister in the final years of the Yeltsin administration. Nemtsov stood by Yeltsin in 1993 and cheered on the Russian president's shelling by tank fire of the Congress of People's Deputies, Russia's supreme legislative institution after it moved to impeach Yeltsin. Before anyone sheds tears over Nemtsov's fate, it should be recalled that scores of people were killed inside the parliament, known as the "White House," and hundreds more wounded. Nemtsov, the "democrat," was a mere thug cheering on other marauding thugs in 1993.

The Russian Congress of People's Deputies opposed Yeltsin's plans to sell off state assets and it was shelled by tank fire ordered by Yeltsin, an attack cheered on by Nemtsov and the Soros gang who had infiltrated all levels of the Russian government, media, and economy. Above: the upper burned floors of the White House after Yeltsin's assault.

Perhaps the only real accomplishment of Yeltsin was his appointment of Putin as his successor. It is believed by many that in his later years, Yeltsin sobered up enough to realize how he allowed Russian oligarchs and foreign interests to take over Russia in order to bleed it dry of its valuable natural resources and turn its people into low wage slaves. Putin's first order of business after becoming president of Russia was to wrest control of Russia from the oligarchs who were working hand-in-glove with Soros's OSI; the
Harriman Institute at Columbia University, which specializes in Russian, Eurasian and East European studies; HIID; the National Endowment for Democracy (NED); The Carlyle Group (on whose board Soros served); the Ford, Rockefeller, and Heritage Foundations, Helsinki Watch (which later became Human Rights Watch, funded by Soros), and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) to ensure that the last vestiges of socialism were erased completely from the Russian landscape. These foreign neo-con elements also saw to it that Russia's government virtually demilitarized by allowing Russia's military infrastructure to fall apart. These were the years when Soviet-built ships and submarines rusted away at their moorings, Russian army units became demoralized, and air force planes were sold off on the international market to businessmen who used them for smuggling arms, precious gems, and drugs.

The results of these economic shock policies were disastrous across Russia, except for the few oligarchs who amassed billions of rubles and foreign currency at the expense of Russian workers, pensioners, and the middle class. One Harvard professor, Edward Glaeser, opined that the Harvard Project and its masterminds had not created so much hatred toward Jews in Russia and abroad since the publication of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Putin has certainly had his job cut out for him. One of the first tasks of Soros was to transform Russian education. Just after the fall of the Soviet Union, Soros publishing houses provided the Russian education system with textbooks that lauded privatization, capitalism, and foreign investment. Soros's re-education of Russian youth was designed to ensure that socialism would never be popular again with future generations of Russians. It was out of these "re-educated" youth that Russia's current, and very much a minority, opposition draws its ranks. Soros's textbooks were also influenced by the CIA, which wanted Russian school-age population to believe that Russia would never again be a great power.

Exiled Russian media tycoon Boris Berezovsky, also known as Platon Elenin, who was suspiciously found hanging in 2013 in the bathroom of his English manor house with a belt tied around his neck after he expressed a willingness to return to Russia to patch up his differences with Putin, was quoted in 1999 by Interfax as saying of Soros and the CIA, "I nearly fainted when I heard a couple of years ago that George Soros was a CIA asset." Berezovsky said that Soros was working with the CIA to undermine Russia because they were "afraid of Russian capital becoming strong." Berezovsky, who worked with other Russian oligarch exiles and billionaire domestic Russian opponents of Putin like jailed and now-exiled former Yukos boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky, as well as Chechen rebels, to undermine Putin would have been a god-send to Russian counter-intelligence had he returned to Russia. Although the Soros media tried to pin Berezovsky's alleged "suicide" on Putin, it was the Soros/CIA nexus who had reason to want Berezovsky dead. Berezovsky was in on th4e ground floor of the opposition movement to Putin and he knew not only knew "where all the bodies were buried" but, more importantly, where all the money was stashed abroad.

One of the joint CIA/Soros OSI assets, who used the International Crisis Group (ICG), founded by Soros in 1993, as cover, was Fred Cuny. Cuny disappeared in 1995 in Chechnya while reportedly assisting Chechen separatist rebels in their war against Russia. ICG has included on its board a number of Cold War veteran intelligence types, including the rabidly anti-Russian Zbigniew Brzezinski; former NATO commander Wesley Clark, who was willing to shoot it out with Russian troops over control of the vestiges of the former Yugoslavia; and Ronald Reagan national security adviser Richard Allen, who recruited Oliver North for the National Security Council staff.

Although there is evidence that Nemtsov may have been sacrificed by the neo-cons as a way of embarrassing Putin and bringing pressure to bear on his government, there is little doubt that Nemtsov was working with Soros and the CIA to overthrow the Russian government. On November 17, 2010, Nemtsov addressed the Harriman Institute at Columbia. Surrounded by Soros operatives, CIA elements, and other ne'er-do-wells, Nemtsov publicly outlined the plans to overthrow Putin: Nemtsov called for sanctions against Russian leaders over the death of Sergei Magnitsky, a dodgy Russian lawyer, who was awaiting trial on charges of fraud in connection with Russia’s largest foreign investment fund, Hermitage Capital. Hermitage was owned by American William Browder, grandson of American Communist Party leader Earl Browder. Earl and William shared something in common: they were both dupes of U.S. intelligence. Earl wasted no time in denouncing other American communists before the House Un-American Activities Committee and FBI in order to save his own skin.

Nemtsov helped get Congress to enact the for Sergei Magnitsky Act of 2010 which imposed sanctions and U.S. visa bans on 60 Russian officials in the Interior Ministry, Federal Security Service, Federal Tax Service, arbitration courts, general prosecutor's office, and Federal Prison Service. The 60 officials were accused of murdering Magnitsky even though there was not a shred of evidence proving it. 

For Nemtsov, the list of 60 sanctioned Russians was insufficient. He wanted it extended to Putin himself and other top Russian officials. If any American political leader urged a foreign parliament to enact sanctions against President Obama, Vice President Biden, and other Cabinet officials, many Americans would call the action treasonous or seditious. 
Soros has a single intention when he throws billions of dollars at regime change. He wants to squash anything resembling a state-run or mixed state/private-run economy. Soros believes that all wealth must be held by a few oligarchs like himself. For that reason, any leader who stands in the way of Soros's brand of uber-capitalism, will find himself or herself pressured by street-centered themed revolutions. Putin is refusing to become the latest Soros victim, a list which includes Serbia's Slobodan Milosevic, Haiti's Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo, Thailand's Thaksin and Yingluck 
Shinawatra, Georgia's Eduard Shevardnadze, Ukraine's Viktor Yanukovych, Honduras's Manuel Zelaya, Paraguay's Fernando Lugo, and Kyrgyzstan's Askar Akaev and Kurmanbek Bakiyev.

It is not Putin who stands as a threat to democracy but Soros and his well-paid minions who thrive on shock therapy economies and political turmoil. If anyone should be sanctioned with asset freezes and visa bans it should be one Gyorgy Schwartz, otherwise known as George Soros, and his children Alexander, Gregory, Jonathan, and Robert Soros, and Andrea Soros Columbel. For Russia, the Soros family rose up from the bowels of hell to plague the entire nation.
