Citing leaked emails attributed to billionaire George Soros and Ukrainian President Poroshenko, Ron Paul, a former Republican congressman, pointed out that the American investor is pushing ahead a plan aiming to provide Kiev with top-of-the-line lethal weapons, despite the provisions of the Minsk II accord; Dr. Paul stressed that Soros' adventurism will cost the American taxpayers dearly.
"In the email correspondence, Soros tells the Ukrainian leadership that the US should provide Ukraine 'with the same level of sophistication in defense weapons to match the level of the opposing force.' In other words, despite the February ceasefire, Soros is pushing behind the scenes to make sure Ukraine receives top-of-the-line lethal weapons from the United States. Of course it will be up to us to pay the bill because Ukraine is broke," the former Republican congressman emphasized.
"So George Soros will use his influence in the US government to put the American people on the hook for a bankrupt Ukraine — forcing us to pay for weapons, more military training, and Ukraine's crippling debt," Ron Paul elaborated.
"Is it really any of our business if the east wants to break away from the west? Is it a vital US interest which flag the people wish to hang in Donetsk?" Dr. Paul asked.
American global military and financial interventionism is steadily undermining the US economy and the dollar's positions as the world's reserve currency, the former Republican congressman warned.
George Soros has repeatedly come under heavy criticism for his purported involvement in "color revolutions" worldwide. Soros' NGOs, such as the Open Society Foundation, have long been slammed for maintaining western interests and violating the sovereignty of national governments in a number of countries, including Eastern European states. Some experts suggest that Soros-led NGOs are behind the recent turmoil in Macedonia.
