Skip to comments.George Soros about Europe, Russia and Ukraine (Euromaidan PR interview of Soros
Posted on 04/14/2014 12:55:16 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist
In an interesting interview [link at URL] to the New York Review of Books, George Soros shared his ideas on many topics including Europe, Russia and the Ukranian crisis. He also presented his new book [link at URL] The tragedy of the European Union: Disintegration or Revival? Whether one agrees or disagrees with Soro's interpretations and arguments, it is hard to deny that the interview is extremely insightful and gives a lot of food for thought. I offer a discussion of the part of the interview devoted to Ukraine.
George Soros emphasized the necessity of a large-scale technical and financial assistance program for Ukraine.
... "Ukraine is a potentially attractive investment destinantion. ... The new regime in Ukraine is eager to confront that task," Soros said.
... Earlier George Soros called for an EU Marshall Plan for Ukraine. He mentioned that "Europe, true to form, demanded a lot and offered little... It's very important to respond, and to respond in the right way... Something like a European Marshall plan for Ukraine."
Some experts allege that geopolitics is not Soros' area of [sic] expertise as a finance trader. This hardly holds as international finance requires profound knmowledge and understanding of international politics and geopolitics. That is why successful international financiers are usually well versed in many areas related to international finance.
The opinion of George Soros about a Marshall Plan for Ukraine is very appropriate and timely from the geopolitical and international finance points of view.
On April 6, 2014, George Soros somewhat unexpectedly visited Ukraine and held a number of meetings.

I don’t know what to make of him. I know he supported Solidarity in Poland. I know he screwed the Brits out of lots of money. I know lots of FReepers hate him, like he’s Goldstein in Orwell’s 1984. I don’t get it.
And you probably never will.
Euromaidan was a wave of protest that toppled the old government in Ukraine, and that led to the current regime. A regime that Obama supports, but won’t help - at least not direct and out in the open.
If I am not mistaken, I believe that it is now general knowledge that the protets were feuled by Svoboda, Pravy Sektor, others like them, and anti-Russian elements.
I wonder what Gleen Beck would have to say...
What say you?
Read this and you, like any non evil sociopath will come to the same conclusion about that piece of human trash...
KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.
Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.
Mr. SOROS: Yes. Thats right. Yes.
KROFT: I mean, thatsthat sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
Mr. SOROS: Notnot at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you dontyou dont see the connection. But it wasit created nono problem at all.
KROFT: No feeling of guilt?
Mr. SOROS: No.
KROFT: For example that, Im Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there. None of that?
Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I cI could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldnt be there, because that waswell, actually, in a funny way, its just like in marketsthat if I werent thereof course, I wasnt doing it, but somebody else wouldwouldwould be taking it away anyhow. And it was thewhether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So theI had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.
Ooops Glenn Beck.
I know lots of FReepers hate him....I dont get it.
He profits from other’s misery and loss. He buys elections with his millions by working his way into the hierarchy of political systems/positions (ala SOS project). Not to mention his collaborating with the Nazi’s thing.
What’s not to get?
He’s also lying. He pretended to be Christian as he outed other Jews for the Nazis.
Srsly? Isn’t name calling a tactic of the left?
He funds radical Leftist causes in America.
True. Some on this thread just don’t get it, or offer cover. Not sure why.
They don't realize how small his fund is or how limited his resources actually are.
He likes to meddle, he's got a very Euro, very multiculti outlook, and he really thinks he has the answers to everything.
The same goes for many, many CEOs and financiers who are far wealthier and more influential than he is.
Warren Buffett and Bill Gates being two prominent examples.
That is what you have to resort to? Ad Homnem?
Why not direct some Ad Homs at those idiots at EuroMaidan for having an interview with...with... Soros of all people.
And why not direct some Ad Homs at Soros, huh?
Do you like McCain, Obama, Soros or Putin?
I don’t care for any of them.
We need to stay out of this, and you should know this!!!
Yep. Leftists use Ad Homs all the time.
There’s a difference between knowing that he’s a really contemptible human being and believing that he has magical powers.
This isn’t about what Freepers think, this is about what Freepers and Conservatives KNOW.
Likes to just “meddle”?
Not that powerful?
McCain might probably agree with you, as might Obama and others...
I’m against Obama and Putin. I need to learn more about Soros to hate him the way others do here.
“Ukraine is a potentially attractive investment destinantion. ... The new regime in Ukraine is eager to confront that task,”
He should know..
His sons have had the Open Society NGO’s at work destabilizing a Ukraine already dealing with civil unrest for a while now, funded by the U.S taxpayer.
