Two foundations of billionaire George Soros have been recognized as undesirable because they "pose a threat to both national security and constitutional order."

According to the Sputnik Agency, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office has declared the organizations "Open Society Foundations" and "OSI Assistance Foundation" undesirable.  Both NGOs belong to US billionaire George Soros, who is already declared an enemy of Russian politics, and who operates several subversive organizations in Eastern Europe for the purpose of destabilizing other countries. Among other things, he is said to have played a role in the Euromaidan-Coup in Ukraine.

Regarding both of Soros’ foundations, the spokesperson for the Prosecutor General's Office, Marina Gridnewa, said today [Nov. 30]: "It was found that the activity of the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation poses a threat to the foundations of the Russian constitutional system and security of the state.” She refers to a law adopted in May which can prohibit such organizations from doing any further activity in the country.

Western protests against these measures are totally baseless, because no country tolerates the activity of an organization (financed from abroad) that promotes political upheaval in that country and thus massively threatens the internal security. Imagine if a Russian oligarch were to finance an organization in Germany or in the US that called for a pro-Russian regime change and used managerial staff trained to accommodate their political purpose. Such endeavors would most likely also be prevented by the German or US governments.
