As the world leaders mainly from the United States and the European Union keep making plans on how to deal with the notorious Islamic State they should be very careful with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. George Soros that this world leaders are making a grave mistake by thinking that President Putin is on their side in this war. It is very evident that Putin is more after his ambitions, which is the disintegration of the European Union. The was Putin plans to achieve this it seems is by flooding the European Union with Syrian refugees running away from their war tone country.
To support this claim, Forbes billionaire George Soros says that Russian planes have been carrying out attacks on civilians in Syria forcing them to fled to Jordan and Lebanon. So far, through its backdoor strategies, Russia has managed to displace over 20,000 Syrian refugees to the Jordan border while the other is waiting to enter Lebanon. Both groups are growing. A large-scale air attack has been launched by Russia against Northern Syria civilians. These attacks have caused over 70,000 civilians to seek refuge in Turkey . The European Union leaders should carefully handle Putin as he is a gifted tactician and can be very cunning. Despite this, Putin is not a good strategic thinker, and all the accusing fingers point to him.
George Soros can not understand why the leaders of both the US and the European Union cannot realize that Putin is a scam and liar. Russia, under Putin, is trying to take control of Europe through shorthand methods. Putin also has a deadline to bring down the European Union had his government is about to bankruptcy in 2017. Russia is caught up in an economic turmoil as its foreign debt are maturing soon. There is also a threat of political turmoil which may be brought by the economic crisis. At the moment, Russia is financially unstable, and the Western sanctions are making it worse.
There is a 7% of GDP deficit on Russia’s budget, and a 3% cut will be initiated by the government to prevent inflation rates in the country from getting out of hand. The country’s social security fund is also running bankrupt and its is now supported by the government. For a long time, George Soros has never been Putin’s favorite due to his drive for regime change in Russia. Recently, Russia banned two of George Soros humanitarian organizations from operating in the country and termed them a threat to Russia, its people, and its Constitution.
George Soros runs the Open Society charity organization which spreads the message of democracy, freedom of speech and access to information. The Open Society stands up for a society where everyone is equal, and the rule of a fair constitution governs the people, and no individual is above the law.
