Hacked Emails Expose George Soros As Ukraine Puppet-Master

Tyler Durden's picture

Just days after George Soros warned that World War 3 was imminent unless Washington backed down to China on IMF currency basket inclusion, the hacker collective CyberBerkut has exposed the billionaire as the real puppet-master behind the scenes in Ukraine. In 3 stunning documents, allegedly hacked from email correspondence between the hedge fund manager and Ukraine President Poroshenko, Soros lays out "A short and medium term comprehensive strategy for the new Ukraine," expresses his confidence that the US should provide Ukraine with lethal military assistance, “with same level of sophistication in defense weapons to match the level of opposing force," and finally explained Poroshenko's "first priority must be to regain control of financial markets," which he assures the President could be helped by The Fed adding "I am ready to call Jack Lew of the US Treasury to sound him out about the swap agreement."

The hacking group CyberBerkut claims it has penetrated Ukraine’s presidential administration website and obtained correspondence between Soros and Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko. It has subsequently posted all the intercepted pdfs on line at the following location. More details as RT earlier reported:

The hacktivists have published three files online, which include a draft of “A short and medium term comprehensive strategy for the new Ukraine” by Soros (dated March 12, 2015); an undated paper on military assistance to Kiev; and the billionaire’s letter to Poroshenko and Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk, dated December 23, 2014.


According to the leaked documents, Soros supports Barack Obama’s stance on Ukraine, but believes that the US should do even more.


He is confident that the US should provide Ukraine with lethal military assistance, “with same level of sophistication in defense weapons to match the level of opposing force.”


“In poker terms, the US will ‘meet, but not raise,” the 84-year-old businessman explained, supposedly signing one of the letters as “a self-appointed advocate of the new Ukraine.”


The Western backers want Kiev to “restore the fighting capacity of Ukraine without violating the Minsk agreement,” Soros wrote.

Among other things, the leaked documents claim that the Ukrainian authorities were also asked to “restore some semblance of currency stability and functioning banking system” and “maintain unity among the various branches of government” in order to receive assistance from foreign allies.

Soros believes that it’s up to the EU to support Kiev with financial aid, stressing that “Europe must reach a new framework agreement that will allow the European Commission to allocate up to $1 billion annually to Ukraine.”


As for the current state of economy, the billionaire wrote that former Chilean finance minister, Andres Velasco, after visiting Ukraine on his request, returned with “a dire view of financial situation."


“The new Ukraine is literally on the verge of collapse” due to the national bank’s lack of hard currency reserves, Soros warned Poroshenko.


The correspondence shows that the billionaire has been in constant touch with the authorities in Kiev and consulting them.

Digging into the details of the documents, we find one intriguing snippet:

As you know, I asked Andrés Velasco, a prominent economist who was Chile’s very successful minister of finance from 2006-2010 to visit Kyiv where he met the Prime Minister; the President was in Warsaw at the time. Velasco came back with a dire view of the financial situation. The National Bank of Ukraine has practically no hard currency reserves. That means that the hryvnia has no anchor. If a panic occurred and the currency collapsed as it did in Russia, the National Bank could not stabilize the exchange rate even if only temporarily as Russia did by injecting $90 billion.


Your first priority must be to regain control over the financial markets—bank deposits and exchange rates. Unless you do, you will have no way to embark on deeper reforms. I believe the situation could be stabilized by getting the European Council to make a commitment in principle that they will pull together the new $15 billion package that the IMF requires in order to release the next tranche of its original package at the end of January 2015. Based on that commitment the Federal Reserve could be asked to extend a $15 billion three months swap arrangement with the National Bank of Ukraine. That would reassure the markets and avoid a panic.




I am ready to call Jack Lew of the US Treasury to sound him out about the swap agreement.

One wonders what other matters of national importance involve George Soros getting on the line with the US Treasury Secretary to arrange virtually unlimited funds courtesy of the US Federal Reserve just to promote one person's ulterior agenda?

And just like that, conspiracy Theory becomes Conspiracy Fact once again.

The full documents are below:

Ironically, the first document laying out the "short and medium-term comprehensive strategy for new Ukraine" and signed by George Soros, "a self-appointed advocate of the New Ukraine", was ironically created by Tamiko Bolton, the 40 year old who became Soros' third wife several years ago.

Soros Ukraine Strategy


The next letter, one directly sent by Soros to Ukraine's president Poroshenko and prime minister Yatseniuk, comes courtesy of a pdf created by Douglas York, Soros' personal assistant.

Priority To Fix Financial Markets


Finally, a letter (authored by Yasin Yaqubie of the International Crisis Group based on its pdf metadata properties), which lobbies the US "to do more."

Ukraine Letter to Potus - Lethal Aid


To sum up: Soros is basically lobbying on behalf of Ukraine, pushing for cash and guns, to oppose Putin in every way possible.

If genuine, and based on their meta data, they appear to be just that, these lettes show how Soros is trying to weasel around the Minsk agreements (for instance, how to train Ukrainian soldiers without having a visible NATO presence in Ukraine). The documents link up Nuland with Soros, and clears up who is truly pulling the strings of the US State Department.

Finally, while the documents don't mention what Soros has in store for Ukraine, one can use their imagination.

If we want to think we are better than the commies, then we need to start by being better than them. Our leaders have told so many lies that whenever the government says anything at all, we suspect it's a lie. That's a problem. And until we get new leadership, real leadership, we aren't good enough to condem Russia, or anyone else for that matter.

Urine idiot.

Soro's heads up the 'Open Society' which is his euphemism for global socialism which is anchored by Socialists International in the UN. These are the people bringing you carbon taxes, Agenda 21, and banning guns. Soros is the admitted communist who also admits collaborating with the Nazis in WWII.

The reason Ukraine has no currency reserves is because their gold got looted.

Still, UAH has been levitating at 21 to a dollar for a while. I am sure Fed does its magic in this case.

 Mr. Soros you may be a master, but I am not a puppet on the string. The Time has come. Game over. Your fiat is no longer RELEVANT. A holder of GOLD Mr. Soros? You will be vanquished before the real value is realized.

Sooooo nukes for Ukes?


Soros I believe is violation of the Logan act as well as The President's treaty authority, I bet he doesnt pull this crap with the Israel govt.  Congess needs to investigate (and toll Soros).


Whats 3 years to Soros? $10 billion?


I guess the Kenyan closet Muslim is a stooge for the Jews, you never know what ya gonna get when you drag a dolla thru a trailer park!

So how closely related are Sakiisvili and soros and Kagen?


Kyddyl's picture

OK, I admit it. I copied and pasted from Wikipedia, but just remember some states are happier for his actions. "Soros has funded worldwide efforts to promote drug policy reform. In 2008, Soros donated $400,000 to help fund a successful ballot measure in Massachusetts known as the Massachusetts Sensible Marijuana Policy Initiative which decriminalized possession of less than 1 oz (28g) of marijuana in the state. Soros has also funded similar measures in California, Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Nevada and Maine.[88] Among the drug decriminalization groups that have received funding from Soros are the Lindesmith Center and Drug Policy Foundation.[89] Soros donated $1.4 million to publicity efforts to support California's Proposition 5 in 2008, a failed ballot measure that would have expanded drug rehabilitation programs as alternatives to prison for persons convicted of non-violent drug-related offenses.[90]"

Pushing drugs to numb the dumb. Yeah, he should be applauded. Pushing war kinda trumps that and I'm all for legalization and anti criminalization of drugs. Weed smokers are usually liberals.

There is much more to it.

See my comment below.

TweedleDeeDooDah's picture

The whole "pushing drugs to numb the numb" is the meme they have created to keep the sheep in the field and cattle running in the bars....

They aint Soros as a "drug pusher" or legalizer because of a progressive (not necessarily liberal) move to decriminalize or uotright legalize drugs would take away from one of the greatest sources of  unaccountable hard cash and unseen power, which is what the illegal drug market and trade has been made to support.

Follow the money to the top, and you'll understand why TPTB really want to sink Soros.

All the "pushing drugs" and "weed smokers are usually liberals" is the pink paint on your fence.

Soros stirs instability in Greece and Ukraine to speculate on Eurodollar on the top of his speculative investment plans in those countries. Stability kill profits, that's his mantra.

Sensing his death he want us to engage in nuclear war and die with him similarly to Brzezinski . They both are insane.

For those who want to refresh what this Ukrainian war was and is all about see:

I may be a dummy but could there be a skeleton in Hillary's closet relating to this? Ukraine BILLIONAIRES making contributions to the Foundation and Hillary being BFF with Soros (Chelsea even married at large estate owned by Soros).

Unrelated, but I would like Vegas to take odds on whether our present Secretary of State really broke his leg--or was it a stall tactic in the negotiations with IRAN so POTUS could deal with the bitch slapping by China the Island builder and Putin.

Radical Marijuana's picture

I thought this article confirmed what was already strongly suspected. I regard Soros as one of the more brilliant banksters. Of course, what the banksters typically do is control the opposition.

Personally, one of the things that I dislike about Soros is how his money has enabled the legalize marijuana movements to become dominated by controlled opposition, that has steered those movements into becoming dominated by reactionary revolutionaries, fooling mainstream morons, with another set of classic bait and switch operations. "With friends like that, who needs enemies."

Many people who read Zero Hedge would not be surprised to discover that the legalize marijuana movements in the USA have become dominated by the Jewish bankster Soros, donating tens of millions of dollars to an organization whose executive director is also a Jew, so that that organization was able to become the most publicly significant voice of the legalize marijuana movements, and therefore, was able to succeed in steering those movements into stupid dead ends, amounting to trivializations.

One of the most devastating techniques that the banksters can generally employ is to use their money to control the opposition, both coming and going ... Of course, the example in the Ukraine is orders of magnitude worse than the history of the drug wars, however, it is always basically the same agenda behind everything, namely backing up debt slavery systems with wars based on deceits. The tragedies of wars based on deceits is that those usually also "end" deceitfully.

A "conspiracy" to encourage democracy in the former Soviet slave states.  Trying to help Ukraine survive the Russian military aggression makes Soros a "puppetmaster" in what universe?  

Oh yeah, this one. 


Bach's_bitch's picture

Yes, former slave states whose democratic governments are a combination of foreign private and sovereign interests working with local billionaires and political thugs.

During the crusades, people like "roadlust" would have been the men signing up for the "Christian" armies to do their bit for "Christianity" by slaughtering people a thousand miles away from their homeland.

Wild E Coyote's picture

In the universe, where U.S. Claims they do not interfere in Ukraine affairs and demands Russia do the same. Which means not promoting anything. Including democracy or socialism or other methods, but let Ukrainians decide for themselves.
It is a conspiracy since, we now know that the man George Soros claims to be able to make the Fed do what he wants while Fed claims independent policy.
It is a conspiracy if Russian credit rating is downgraded while the really bankrupt Ukraine is kept alive by conspiracy to cheat on the ratings.
It is a conspiracy if they sign a peace pact in Minsk and then quietly arm themselves with lethal weapons to fight Ukrainians who are unhappy with a Government which refused to negotiate with them.

"Trying to help Ukraine survive the Russian military aggression"

I have it on the very highest authority (my neighbors cat) that TV News channels have s.o  m.u.c.h footage of columns of Russian tanks inside Ukraine and so many tens of thousands of soldiers, they simply don't have enough hours in the day to broadcast it. Yes really!!!

smacker's picture

Thanks, a good read.

I think it's probably true that there are some Russian forces inside Ukraine but mostly in an advisory capacity and nowhere the numbers claimed by Poroshenko and Western political elites.

True to form Soros is great at using other people's money to make his own - without return to the other people. He has about 1 billion invested in Ukraine including bond and chemical  investments  but he wants 50 billion in Euro investments to make sure Ukraine does not fall.

JoJoJo's picture

From Mrc.org 

2004, “two young men threw water and mayonnaise at him” in Ukraine, accusing Soros of trying to push a “velvet revolution” just like had happened in Georgia, reported the BBC. That same year, a critic of that nation’s government said “Georgia does not exist right now, it is only another U.S. state whose governor is George Soros,” wrote Al Jazeerah. His efforts went so poorly in Russia that they came close to open combat. In November, 2003 Al Jazeera reported, “men in battle fatigues have raided the Moscow headquarters of billionaire investor George Soros.” One of the Open Society executives said the attackers had removed documents as a “climax to a long-running commercial dispute.” Soros’s fund pulled out of Russia that year, after having lost a reported $2 billion

Soros: "with same level of sophistication in defense weapons to match the level of opposing force," and finally explained Poroshenko's "first priority must be to regain control of financial markets"

Incredible. Regain control of the financial markets as a first priority? Are you listening Poroshenko? Soros is either a banker with long/short investments in Ukraine which he's getting worried about, or he's off his head. Or both.

If he only wants US-supplied weapons of the same level as the opposition, he must be wanting the war to go on and on - but only after the financial markets are back under control.

Come on, Soros is just a concerned wealthy citizen trying to help out Ukraine. The question is: are the actions of Soros truly in the interest of his adopted country, the USA?  Will Europe and the International community ready to invest more into Ukraine where everyone knows money disappears faster than you can fund it...

There is no question in anyone's mind that Ukraine is running on vapors and that Putin is counting on the economic collapse of Ukraine for his next tactical move which is the economic take-over of Ukraine which is 50% dependent on Russia anyhow.  There can be no doubts about this.
