Why George Soros Thinks The Ukraine Deserves Immediate Support

Russia and the Ukraine have had somewhat intertwined destinies for over a thousand years- going back to a time when the leader of Russia was frequently based in Kiev. And although the modern world has created a much different dynamic due to the current leader of Russia’s predilection with ethnicity, there is a growing sense that there needs to be more economic parity in order for the Ukraine to be stable and strong enough to handle Russian war overtures and aggression on its own.
