Leaked Memo Proves Soros Ruled Ukraine In 2014: Minutes From "Breakfast With US Ambassador Pyatt"

Submitted by Alex Christoforou of The Duran

We noted in a previous post how important Ukraine was to George Soros, with documents from DC Leaks that show Soros, and his Open Society NGO, scouring the Greek media and political landscape to push the benefits of his Ukraine coup upon a Russian leaning Greek society.

Now more documents, in the massive 2,500 leaked tranche, show the immense power and control Soros had over Ukraine immediately following the illegal Maidan government overthrow.

Soros and his NGO executives held detailed and extensive meetings with just about every actor involved in the Maidan coup: from US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt, to Ukraine’s Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Justice, Health, and Education.

The only person missing was Victoria Nuland, though we are sure those meeting minutes are waiting to see the light of day.

Plans to subvert and undermine Russian influence and cultural ties to Ukraine are a central focus of every conversation. US hard power, and EU soft power, is central towards bringing Ukraine into the neo-liberal model that Soros champions, while bringing Russia to its economic knees.

Soros' NGO,  International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) plays a key role in the formation of the “New Ukraine”…the term Soros frequently uses when referring to his Ukraine project.

In a document titled, "Breakfast with US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt", George Soros, (aka GS), discusses Ukraine’s future with:

Geoffrey Pyatt (US Ambassador to Ukraine); David Meale (Economic Counsellor to the Ambassador); Lenny Benardo (OSF); Yevhen Bystrytsky (Executive Director, IRF); Oleksandr Sushko (Board Chair, IRF); Ivan Krastev (Chariman, Centre for Liberal Studies); Sabine Freizer (OSF); Deff Barton (Director, USAID, Ukraine)

The meeting took place on March 31, 2014, just a few months after the Maidan coup, and weeks before a full out civil war erupted, after Ukraine forces attacked the Donbass.

In the meeting, US Ambassador Pyatt outlines the general goal for fighting a PR war against Putin, for which GS is more than happy to assist.

Ambassador: The short term issue that needs to be addressed will be the problem in getting the message out from the government through professional PR tools, especially given Putin’s own professional smear campaigns.


GS: Agreement on the strategic communications issue—providing professional PR assistance to Ukrainian government would be very useful. Gave an overview of the Crisis Media Center set up by IRF and the need for Yatseniuk to do more interviews with them that address directly with journalists and the public the current criticisms of his decision making.

Pyatt pushes the idea of decentralization of power for the New Ukraine, without moving towards Lavrov’s recommendation for a federalized Ukraine.

GS notes that a federalization model would result in Russia gaining influence over eastern regions in Ukraine, something that GS strictly opposes.

Ambassador: Lavrov has been pushing the line about constitutional reform and the concept of federalization in Russia. The USG reaffirmed it will not negotiate over the heads of the Ukrainians on the constitutional reform issue and that Ukraine needs to decide on this issue for itself. He noted that there are templates for devolution that can be used in this context but that the struggle will be to figure out how to move forward with decentralization without feeding into Russian agenda.


GS: Federalization plan being marketed by Putin to Merkel and Obama would result in Russia gaining influence and de facto control over eastern regions in Ukraine. He noted Lavrov has clear instructions from Putin to push the line on federalization.


Ambassador: Secretary Kerry would be interested to hear GS’s views on the situation directly, upon return from his trip.


SF: There is no good positive model for federalization in region, even models of decentralization are very poor because the concept is not very common. The institutions need for decentralization do not yet exist and need to be built.


YB: Ukraine should pursue a decentralization policy based on the Polish decentralization model. IRF funded the development of a plan based on this model previously and those involved are now advisers to government on this issue. Noted it is also important to encourage the constitution council created y government to be more open and involve independent experts.


Ambassador: Constitutional reform issue as the most urgent issue facing Ukraine—there is a need to decentralize in order to push democracy down to the local level and break the systemic corruption that results from Kiev’s authority over the local governments.


Ambassador: Russian propaganda machine telling Kharkhiv and Donbass residents that the government in Western Ukraine is looking to take away their resources and rights through decentralization process, feeding into Lavrov’s line that the Ukrainian government is dysfunctional and not successful as a unitary state, making it a necessity to have federalization.

The participants cannot stop fixating on Russia and Putin throughout the meeting. The Ukraine project seems to be more about sticking it to Russia, then about saving a country about to fall into the abyss.

US Ambassador Pyatt hands over full control to George Soros, and point blank asks him, “what USG should be doing and what the USG is currently doing.”

Soros’ response is stunning, “Obama has been too soft on Putin.”

Ambassador: Asked GS for a critique of US policy and his thoughts on what USG should be doing.


GS: Will send Ambassador Pyatt copies of correspondences he previously sent to others and his article in NY Review of Books. Obama has been too soft on Putin, and there is a need to impost potent smart sanctions. He noted the need for a division of labor between the US and the EU with the US playing the bad cop role. The USG should impose sanctions on Russia for 90 days or until the Russian government recognizes the results of the presidential elections. He noted that he is most concerned about transitional justice and lustration.


Ambassador: USG will organize conference with the British at the end of April on financial crimes that will bring together senior level government officials and representatives of the international community to discuss where money went. He noted his worries about the complete implosion of the Party of Regions and will be speaking to IRI and NDI about offering assistance to reconstruct the party for the post-Yanukovych era.

US Ambassador Pyatt decides to take out Tymoshenko from the New Ukraine equation.

She served her purpose as a poor and sick political prisoner while Yanukovich was in power, saying that “Tymoshenko is associated with everything undignified”…

Ambassador: Personal philosophy on the greatest need for Ukraine right now is the need for national unification. This will not happen under Tymoshenko because she is perceived as a hold over of the old regime and a very divisive personality. He calls the revolution a “revolution of dignity” and Tymoshenko is associated with everything undignified.


GS: Need to cleanse the “original sin” that all of the current presidential candidates are marked with in order for Ukraine to move forward.

Concern over the Pravy Sector, and how to disarm, or integrate, the muscle that was used to instigate much of the violence during the Maidan is debated.

Soros even throws out his suspicion that the Privy Sector has been infiltrated, and now is working under Russia’s FSB.

GS: Belief that the Pravy Sector is an FSB plot and has been funded to destabilize Ukraine


Ambassador: Agreed that this was at least partly true, but the problem now is that Pravy Sector has become organic and is still armed. There is a need for the government to figure out how to demobilize and disarm the Pravy Sector.


GS: How can we defend against Putin’s attempts to destabilize the May elections?


Ambassador: The international community should send in a flood of observers from the OSCE and other institutions. The US Embassy is also currently working with the local intelligence agencies to monitor the situation and they have already found Russian agents. He noted that a second ambassador, Cliff Bond, will be brought  into the embassy to focus on the longer term questions such as decentralization, lustration, e-governance, and anti-corruption and will be coordinating with the donor community on these issues. Obama has instructed the embassy to focus primarily on economic support and assistance for Ukraine, avoiding military support or assistance.


GS: Hopes that going forward there will be close contact and cooperation between the US Embassy and the IRF.

The Full PDF of the 2014 George Soros minutes can be downloaded here: - Ukraine Working Group 2014-gs ukraine visitmarch 2014note.

The meeting minutes documented present a clear and conclusive case that George Soros and his International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) manipulated Ukraine into moving towards an untenable and self destructive direction.

In one meeting under the title, “Civil Society Roundtable Meeting”, Crimea fifth column schemes are advanced as viable solutions to those participating in the discussion.

Likewise we see how involved Soros was in making sure a Ukraine under federalisation is completely undermined at the highest levels, influencing Merkel and Obama to reject such initiatives.

In hindsight it has now become clear that the only way Ukraine was going to survive the coup in one piece was to move towards a federalised model of governance.

He [George Soros] noted that Ukraine is in grave danger because Putin knows he cannot allow the new Ukraine to succeed. He reiterated his points about the conversations Putin has had with Merkel and Obama about federalism and his concerns surrounding that development. He noted that he hasn’t had direct feedback yet regarding this issue and is basing his worries on second hand information about the reactions of Merkel and Obama. But he reiterated the need for the Ukrainian government to respond loudly and immediately.

All the wars now are the result of Deep State trying to accomplish its agenda. "Fighting for country" already lost its meaning because it's not the country you are fighting for but the interests of a small group of people that are willing to risk losing cannon fodder in order to gain money, influence or power.


Centralized power of the state is what average Joe should fear. When it comes to the economy, policy and war.

The Duran originates from the Turkish controlled sector of Cyprus. There is nothing posted on that website but pro-Erdogan stories and information which receives the blessings of the Turk intelligence services or orignates from the same. As I stated on the other Soros thread already.

Still. From what I know, this is your hypothesis, truth or not, I need data/facts to analyze and see where they come from. So again, if you wish... my pleasure to read you

It is like RT, not many people know it but since a while ago,it is  not a property of the Kremlin anymore. Now is headed by the Russian Oligarchs which did sign a deal or red lines with Putin. For the Kremlin was ok, as they needed cash. So RT now avoids to talk about serious stuff and Israel

Il Dottore's picture
Il Dottore (not verified) conscious being Aug 20, 2016 10:31 PM

Nope mate, let me explain.


A. I did mention that RT is now owned by Russian Oligarchs, forgot to mention they are jews. Not a surprise.

I know this from one guy who was working for them, Daniel Estulin, journalist, friend of mine, he did write "The true history of the Bilderbeg Club", "Shadow Masters" or "Deconstructing Wikileaks". He had a show on RT spanish, called "Desde la Sombra". He made like 82 Episodes in spanish with real shit storms.. forget Alex Jones, David Icke or whatever the fuck comes to your mind. He worked for the KGB, for real.

Well, interesting point came when he published an Episode About The Argentinian Patagonia and how Kirschner was selling it in pieces to jewish oligarchs, getting all the money for her. Estulin was de facto kicked out. His show was the top of the top in views, at least in spanish.


B. I said "serious stuff", and not the typical Palestine and other bullshit histories, That's pretty much as Wiki Leaks, another israeli op, when they came out with such "new footages" of USA bombing civilians in Iraq.... we all knew it

Fuck that

Serious stuff is the connection of Israel with 9/11 which does not appear in 28 pages. Their roles in Bali attacks in 2005. The Iranian issue with attacks in AMIA and Israel Embassy in Buenos Aires plus killing of Judge Alberto Nissman and so on....

Here you have some "serious stuff" to broadcast worlwide





RT is a patsy, like Alex Jones, Noam Chomsky or Trump

conscious being's picture

Thanks for the detailed response. I hear what you are saying. At the same time, I believe Russia has to proceed with caution. The Zionists are a dangerous crew. In the meantime, I see steps in the right direction. Take Israel / Iran. While Killary and Trump demonize Iran, showing it is an AIPAC/Zionist requirement, Russia makes incremental moves to embrace Iran. I could enumerate, but you probably know what I'm talking about. Another example of incremental resistance is the Russian rlationship with their BIS sponsored Central Bank.

Re. Argentina. Interesting news. Maybe there is some top level consensus that with an impending demise of the Jewish State in Palestine, the Jews that are into that kind of thing, need a new homeland? At one point, Stalin wanted to send them all to Siberia, near the Amur River and Chinese border. The Jewish Autonomous Something or other is still out there. At one point, another scheme was to send them all to Madagasscar.

Re. 9/11. True MSM will not discuss Mossad involvement and if RT decided to buck that trend, they would be quickly kicked out of Western markets along with other, less savory repercussions. The UK broadcast regulator, for example, kicks off regular campaigns to kick out or reprimand RT, to make sure they don't spill too many beans.

Take a look to The Saker Post I did pasted above. The struggle between Zionists in Russia has been unbelievable. Putin/EuroAsians Vs Medvedev/AtlanticSuckers/Zionists. This last group still controls Russian Central Bank.

I'm above to start reading seriously Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, books like "200 years together". Nobody like him depicted what we are pointing out right here.

Hopefully Putinists will be fine. Think about, they got the best training background ever... KGB experience. full disintegration of the URSS, constant Western attacks either with the sinking of the Kursk Submarine, Chechenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Syria, Poland and the Baltic countries

They know what they're doing. MAke not mistake, Putin/Lavrov/Shoigu are shaping worlwide history right now .

We also depend on them, pretty much

Where is this unrealistic nostalgia of America come from?


How are the neocons going after one’s resources, and the neoliberals going after one’s economy any different than the Pilgrims going after the Amerindians for their lands, and US invading and stealing about half of Mexico for its cotton?


Isn’t America working guys, pretty much like it was intended to be? An example by one of the founding father:


“Hence the Prince that acquires new Territory, if he finds it vacant, or removes the Natives to give his own People Room; ….. may be properly called Fathers of their Nation.” — Benjamin Franklin, 1751.

Animal Mother's picture

Funny how you point out Americas treatment of native peoples hundreds of years ago, yet fail to mention the treatment native peoples in Brazil have received, such as using your IPS to forcibly move native tribes onto plantations to grow rubber. And this happened in the 1940, not the 1800's. Perhaps before you write about how America treated the Sioux or the Cherokee you should first make sure your country hasnt done the exact same thing to indians after we did it. The Yanomami were shot dead by your prospectors searching for gold on their land, and you have the nerve to point out how other countries treat native peoples?? hypcrite much???

Escrava Isaura's picture

Comparing  America (an empire) vis-à-vis Brazil (a colony) using rubber, but we could use steal or agro, puts US geopolitical all into perspective. Here’s an example, but there are many going back to the 1800 hundreds:


Eager to supply the Allied Forces with the rubber needed for war equipment, the Brazilian government made an agreement with the United States government (the Washington Accords).


The international organization Rubber Development Corporation (RDC), financed with capital from United States industries, covered the expenses of relocating the migrants (known at the time as brabos). The United States government paid the Brazilian government $100 for every worker delivered to the Amazon. Thousands of workers from various regions of Brazil were transported under force to obligatory servitude.

Escrava... I believe you are exactly right and the downvotes do not represent people who know anything about history... but it isn't "America" you're really talking about, it's all of history; it's the human condition. What you describe is the never changing history of human behavior since the days of the caveman. As I said to you a long time ago; in my opinion, small government/free enterprise is the only political/economic system that will work for human beings. Socialism/communism are failed ideologies and can never work; they are the faithful tools of tyrants.

You've been here 26 weeks, which gives you limited vision into the Escrava douche.  He gets downvotes because of his reputation, not the content of one posts (which you happen to like).


Escrava Isaura's picture

Adanata, you heard nope telling you that content is not real relevant. If you come here and regurgitating the same propaganda, you will get the up votes and all the attention.


But if you come here and show facts that contradict some of the blogger’s memo, contradict their believes/egos, they become very uncomfortable.


Now imagine when these bloggers that are talking about growth, find themselves in line to buy gasoline? And knowing that once it ends, it’s forever gone.


An Amish will care less. What do you think nope, and the likes will do?


conscious being's picture

Here's some facts.

  • During the Atlantic slave trade era, Brazil imported more African slaves than any other country. An estimated 4.9 million slaves from Africa came to Brazil during the period from 1501 to 1866.
  • Brazil was the last country in the Western world to abolish slavery. By the time it was abolished, in 1888, an estimated four million slaves had been imported from Africa to Brazil, 40% of the total number of slaves brought to the Americas.
  • Is that your gran'pa with the doo rag?

Get off your high horse, hypocrite. Yoy are in no position to judge.

Escrava Isaura's picture

But the bible doesn’t condone owning slaves either. And it says that it’s ok to beat slaves, as long as they don’t die in your hands. If they die a few days later is OK.


I am a bible person, so if god said is ok to have slaves, who are you humans to tell me, I mean, tell my Brazilian’s elites that they cannot have slaves.
