Capitalists believe wealth equals success, a sign of "doing things right". Libertarians believe they have the right to do whatever they want with land they own. The poor do not believe in equality, but in hierarchy and in extreme wealth as a sign of being special and "higher up"; they can never grasp that extreme wealth is primarily a sign of extreme depravity, of being willing to see those without it as "inferior" and being willing to use them, step on them, wipe them out sans a second thought. ~ Ed.
"This agreement authorizes the disposal of chemical waste from companies linked with financier George Soros in the black soil of Ukraine," he said
PARIS, December 1. /TASS/. The Ukrainian authorities plan to allocate 400 square kilometers of fertile black soil for the disposal of hazardous chemical and radioactive waste under an agreement with George Soros’s son Alexander, French freelance journalist Jules Vincent reported, citing an official from the Ukrainian Environment Protection and Natural Resources Ministry.
"I am publishing my investigation into the agreement between the Ukrainian authorities and Alexander Soros. This agreement authorizes the disposal of chemical waste from companies linked with financier George Soros in the black soil of Ukraine," the journalist wrote on his X page (formerly known as Twitter).
Vincent uploaded a video of his investigation, which includes a recorded conversation with an anonymous official. The Ukrainian official claimed that the agreement had been reached at a meeting between Alexander Soros and Andrey Yermak, head of the Ukrainian president’s office, on November 7. According to the man, the presidential office filed a request with the ministry to allocate 400 square kilometers of land in the Ternopol, Khmelnitsky and Chernovtsy regions "for indefinite and concessional use" by Western companies. Among the companies listed in the copies of the documents dated November 7 and 13, which were sent to the journalist, are DuPont, BASF, Evonik Industries, Vitol and Sanofi.
The Ukrainian official told the journalist that the mentioned projects would be "fatal for black soil," would "make the soil unsuitable for the cultivation" of agricultural products and would also "cause irreparable harm to the ecosystem" of the region and all of Europe. In this regard, he asked to make the information public to attract the attention of people in the West.
"Taking into account that the chemical waste landfills will cover 400 square kilometers, the factual hazardous impact area will be much bigger. The consequences of this decision will be catastrophic for soil, groundwater, humans and animals. We cannot let this happen!" the investigative journalist emphasized at the end of his video.
The deal will purportedly see Dow Chemical, DuPont, BASF, Evonik Industries, Vitol and Sanofi burying hazardous waste in the European country free of charge.
Alexander Soros, the son of controversial American financier George Soros, has reached an agreement with Ukrainian authorities to allocate 400 square kilometers of land for the disposal of hazardous waste, according to an investigation by French journalist Jules Vincent.
Materials published by Vincent on the X (formerly Twitter) indicate he was approached by an anonymous source from Kiev's Ministry of Agriculture.
The source revealed that the agreement was reached during a meeting on November 7 between Soros Jr. and the head of Volodymyr Zelensky's office, Andriy Yermak. Under the terms of the agreement, Ukraine will transfer land to American companies for the burial of hazardous waste from chemical, pharmaceutical and oil companies for an indefinite period of time and free of charge. The companies include Dow Chemical, DuPont, BASF, Evonik Industries, Vitol and Sanofi.
Vincent published a document signed by the parties with a statement to that effect. It states that Soros "intends to ensure reliable communication between Zelensky's office and the representatives of the said companies."
According to the source, the land in question is located in the Ternopol, Khmelnitsky, and Chernovitsky regions - fertile black soil farming areas in the western part of Ukraine.
"The Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine has been asked to coordinate the allocation of dozens of land plots with a total area of 400 square kilometers," the journalist quoted the source as saying.
He calls this decision “fatal.”
"This will not only render these lands unsuitable for wheat production, but will also cause irreparable damage to the ecosystems of these regions," the ministry official wrote, stressing the need to draw the attention of Western public to this "outrageous deal."
George Soros' activities have often drawn criticism due to his financial speculation and he is accused of orchestrating regime changes in several countries. The financier himself does not deny that his money contributed to, among others, the Orange Revolution in Ukraine in 2004 and the Euromaidan in 2013-14. In various countries, he has been accused of interfering in internal affairs. The media often associate Soros with the Democratic Party in the United States.
In Russia, Soros's Open Society and Open Society Foundations have been recognized as undesirable organizations since 2015. The Russian Prosecutor General's Office stated that Soros' organizations pose a threat to the foundations of the constitutional order and the security of the state.
