Possibly the world’s most evil man now has three employees nicely positioned in Ukraine’s government. And Ukrainian citizens thought their Oligarchs were crooks…they ain’t seen nothing yet.
First, a little about the Renaissance Foundation, via Wikipedia:
The International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) (Ukrainian: Міжнародний фонд “Відродження”) is a Ukrainian NGO founded by George Soros.
It was founded in April 1990. IRF is an integral part of the Open Society Foundations which incorporates national and regional foundations in more than thirty countries around the world, primarily in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the former Soviet Union. These foundations share a common goal of supporting educational, social and legal initiatives that promote the development and establishment of an open society.
IRF is the Ukraine’s one of the largest charity organization. Its main objective is to provide financial and operational assistance to the development of an open and democratic society in Ukraine by supporting key civic initiatives in this area.
Over the period from 1990 to 2010 the International Renaissance Foundation supported numerous Ukrainian non-governmental organizations, community groups, academic and cultural institutions, publishing houses etc. in the amount of over $100 million.
From the Open Society Foundations website:
The International Renaissance Foundation’s mission is to foster an open, participatory, pluralist society based on democratic values in Ukraine. Our projects and grantmaking are guided by the principle that real change can only come if people’s rights and dignity are secured. This belief informs our pursuit of two interlinked goals: ensuring access to justice for all and empowering civil society to be a primary source of positive change in Ukraine.
The foundation works with leading Ukrainian nongovernmental groups to engage them in developing a shared public policy agenda for the country, catalyze initiatives that address corruption, and prevent backsliding from democratic reforms. Our efforts to reduce corruption in higher education have resulted in the institutionalization of anticorruption mechanisms in university admissions testing. We also support projects and groups that advance the rights of vulnerable populations, improve public health, and confront discrimination.
Read between the lines and you will understand the the Renaissance Foundation is all about regime change, in order to help make Mr. Soros and his banker clan even more rich and powerful.
The Renaissance Foundation was conveniently commissioned by President Poroshenko to head hunt for “qualified” persons willing t0 take part in Ukraine’s new government.
Via the Kyiv Post:
Lack of public service professionals on the Ukraine labor market has pushed the government to look abroad for qualified applicants who can take positions.
Prague-based Pedersen & Partners and Korn Ferry, global head hunting firms, have found 185 potential employees, many of whom are members of Ukrainian community in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.
The Renaissance Foundation, a global network of policy consulting centers launched by American billionaire George Soros, has sponsored the headhunting process. It paid as much as $82,200 to two companies involved in finding the capable employees for the government agencies.
As of now, Ukrainian legislation doesn’t allow the foreigners to hold any public offices, which is why those who’ll accept the government’s job offers will have to take Ukraine’s citizenship. Meanwhile, dual citizenship is not allowed.
President Petro Poroshenko during his Nov. 27 speech in parliament offered to allow the foreigners be officially employed in the country’s government. Moreover, he asked the lawmakers to provide him with legal tools to grant Ukrainian citizenship through special decrees.
Meanwhile, Natalie Jaresko, U.S. citizen of Ukrainian descent and chief executive officer of Horizon Capital, a private equity fund with $650 million in assets, is considered to be a candidate for the position of finance minister, according to the Kyiv Post research.
Not only did the Renaissance Foundation take on the head hunting and hiring activities, sources in the region are saying that the foundation is being kind enough to also take on the salaries of the newly minted Ukrainian Ministers.
According to Andrei Nechayev, the president of the Russian Financial Corporation, the newly appointed economy and finance ministers can help Ukraine build a dialogue with the EU and the United States, since Ukraine’s economic development hinges on their financial assistance. It is noteworthy in this context that the ministers will be paid their wages not from the Ukrainian budget but from a certain Western foundation (according to some reports, George Soros’ Renaissance foundation).
It gets better. Not only is George Soros acting as head hunter, hiring manager, and apparently paymaster to the new ministers, but Soros foundation grants also helped the new Public Health Minister get his degree.
Via Mat Rodina’s blog:
Yesterday, the first of three foreigners were granted instant citizenship and became heads of three ministries. That is correct, Soros owned people, were given instant citizenship, without giving up their US, Latvian and Georgian citizenships and pronounced top ministers in the government. Each with his or her own rich portfolio of corruption, of course.
The first is Natalie Jaresko, a US citizen, head of the Kiev based Horizon Capital Investments, will now run the Ministry of Finance. What is not mentioned is that she is also a former State Department official who will have control over the funds that the IMF, itself a puppet organization, will give Ukraine. She will also control the terms of those deals. In other words, she is the agent direct of the whole sale of Ukrainian property that is about to take place. I am sure her rewards will be staggering.
The second is Aivaras Abromavicius, a Lithuanian citizen, a former top executive at East Capital. He addressed the Rada stating: “I’m from Europe. We will work together European style.” A so, staggering socialism, corruption with a good Public Relations machine to hide a “gentler” tyranny. He will head the Economics Ministry. Again, the money and assets are further confirmed into the hands of Western foreigners.
Lastly is the US educated Alexander Kvitashvili, who under Saakashvilli, with US monies “reformed” the Georgian medical system. He opened dozens of clinics and hospitals and only later did it come out that in many cases he was moving the same equipment from one opening to another, while funds for the rest of the equipment was disappearing. The present Georgian government has an open criminal case against him and others in his ministry. He is now head of the Public Health Ministry in Ukraine, ready to repeat his “successes”. Oh, did I mention he studied under a Soros grant?
