Soros made the remarks during the Feb. 16 Munich Security Conference held in Germany, adding that such a defeat would be accepted by countries formerly part of the Soviet Union. The Russia-Ukraine war that commenced in February of last year has brought about one of the bloodiest European conflicts since World War II, alongside the the greatest stand-off between Moscow and the West since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
"The countries of the former Soviet Union can hardly wait to see the Russians defeated in Ukraine because they want to assert their independence. This means that a Ukrainian victory would result in the dissolution of the Russian empire," Soros said. "Russia would no longer pose a threat to Europe and the world. That would be a big change for the better."
Following the 1991 disintegration of the Soviet Union – formally the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – it broke off into 15 independent countries. Russia is the biggest and most powerful of them.
He disclosed that even though the U.S. would back Ukraine, U.S. President Joe Biden had cautioned Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that World War III had to be prevented. But as the past months have shown, Zelensky has been demanding more weapons from the West to arm troops in Ukraine to fight the Russians. (Related: George Soros helped Zelensky become president of Ukraine through massive propaganda campaign; now he backs puppet regime he installed.)
Despite the Russian army being poorly led, ill-equipped and demoralized – Soros commented that Russian President Vladimir Putin had depended on the Wagner mercenary group to battle Ukrainian forces in certain regions of the Donbas. Putin's reliance on the mercenary group established by Yevgeny Prigozhin appeared to have been successful in the short term.
"The gamble worked. Ukraine faced a strategic choice: either get bogged down in holding Wagner at bay or hand Russia a propaganda victory and preserve its limited resources for a counterattack," the globalist continued.
The Hungarian-born Soros, who specializes in overthrowing elected leaders in so-called color revolutions, branded both Putin and Chinese paramount leader Xi Jinping as "dictators" in charge of nations that represent "the biggest threat to open society."
"They are tied together in an alliance that has no limits," said the globalist. "They also have a lot in common. They rule by intimidation and, as a consequence, they make mind-boggling mistakes."
Moreover, Soros mentioned that Beijing has strengthened its relationship with Moscow even as almost all of the West has severed ties with Russia.
Soros blasted Xi's zero-COVID strategy, saying it weakened trust in the Chinese Communist Party. The tyrannical policy to curb the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) ended after nationwide protests rocked the communist nation.
"Xi is sticking to a zero-COVID policy that can't possibly be sustained," he commented.
"In the short term, Xi is likely to remain in power because he is in firm control of all the instruments of repression. But I am convinced that Xi will not remain in office for life. While he is in office, China will not become the dominant military and political force that Xi is aiming for."
