WeF was told by George Soros that Russia must be defeated quickly to save civilization and open society.
Unless Moscow is defeated in Ukraine quickly, the collective West won’t be able to address climate change in time to save civilization, billionaire financier George Soros told the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday. He called China and Russia the biggest threats to his idea of an open society.
Russia sends troops to Ukraine “may have been the beginning of the Third World War and our civilization may not survive it,”Soros said that the WEF should be fought, even if it stops. “the situation will never revert to what it was before.”
His telling of the story included “invasion”It happened amid the struggle between “two systems of governance that are diametrically opposed to each other: open society and closed society,”The former is represented by the West, and the latter by Russia or China.
Soros (91) reminisces about the “exciting days” of the Soviet Union’s disintegration, when his wealth increased to the point where he could spend $300 million a year in 1987, and his foundations in Eastern Europe “turned out to be more successful than I expected.”
He claimed that after 2001’s 9/11 terrorist attacks, things started to change. “repressive regimes are now in the ascendant and open societies are under siege,”With Russia and China representing “the greatest threat.”
Soros, on the other hand, was positive about how this fight was progressing. He stated that Russian troops were expecting to be welcomed as liberators by Ukraine and then emerge victorious in a matter of days or weeks. But, Ukraine managed to overcome this expectation. “defeat”With the support of NATO and the US, they were able to do so. He also claimed that Chinese leader Xi Jinping was threatening his legitimacy by imposing Covid-19 lockdowns on Shanghai and other parts of China.
But Soros’ real concern was the fact that Ukraine conflict could interfere with environmental goals, which might make climate change irreversible.
“That could be the end of our civilization,”He insisted that “we must mobilize all our resources to bring the war to an early end.”
“The best and perhaps only way to preserve our civilization is to defeat Putin as soon as possible,” he added.
Henry Kissinger, ex-US diplomat top, asked the WEF Monday to help broker peace in Ukraine over the next 2 months before Russia invades. “a permanent alliance with China”This would lead to Europe’s instability.
“Russia has for 400 years been an essential part of Europe,” noted the 98-year-old Kissinger, warning those who seek Moscow’s “defeat.”
