Soros Hacked: US Billionaire Manipulated Europeans Into Accepting Maidan

DC Leaks' release of almost 2,576 files from groups run by US billionaire George Soros, has exposed the magnate's involvement in Ukraine's Euromaidan affairs as well as manipulation of public opinion in Western and Southern Europe in order to "legalize" the February 2014 coup in Kiev.
OSIFE specified that this "second group" comprised key opinion-makers, a number of traditional mainstream players, emerging political parties — especially in Southern Europe — such as M5S in Italy, Podemos in Spain and Syrizain Greece, and "a wide range of liberal NGOs in western Europe."
However, regardless of Kiev's activities casting shadow on the image of "New Ukraine," OSIFE's plan envisaged spending $750,000 in 2015 on grants, consultancy contracts, fellowships, workshops, exchange visits, conferences and advocacy activities in order to reach the objectives.
To manipulate the Europeans' vision of Maidan, OSIFE planned to involve such reputable mainstream media source as, for example, the Guardian ("to increase coverage of voices from the New Ukraine — e.g. Maidan") and the alternative press such as Eurozine, Huffington Post, Street Press, Internazionale as "key influencers for the audience we [OSIFE] are targeting."
"The good potential synergy between Hromadske and Mediapart… offers an opportunity to launch this project by OSF enabling an introduction between Hromadske and Mediapart," the report continued.
