Michel Chossudovsky at GlobalResearch.ca has a lot to say about Soros in an article that can be Googled with ( "IMF Sponsored" "Democracy" "in The Ukraine" ):
He is not only supported by the IMF and the international financial community, he also has the endorsement of The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) , Freedom House and George Soros' Open Society Institute , which played a behind the scenes role last year in helping "topple Georgia's president Eduard Shevardnadze by putting financial muscle and organizational metal behind his opponents." (New Statesman, 29 November 2004).
This led to the ascendance of Mikheil Saakashvili, who ordered the 2008 attack on Tskhinvali, which led to a Russian intervention.
So Soros is an obvious player in the "Great Game." Let's just say he is not very much like Ralph Nader.
