Geopolitics of Corruption: George Soros and the ‘Panama Leaks’

The largest corruption scandal has shaken the planet. The American International Consortium of Investigative Journalists published more than 2.6 terabytes of data and 11.5 million secret documents from the Panamanian company Mossack Fonseca; this is several times greater than Wikileaks. The Panama Papers leak, according to whistleblowers, accuses prominent politicians of using offshore schemes, and thus indirectly indicates the presence of corruption within a large part of the world’s political elite. The investigation materials refer to the president of Russia Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Ukrainian and Azerbaijani Presidents Poroshenko and Aliyev, and even Saudi King Salman, and this is only a few of the names on the list.

The work of the special services

The scale of the published information indicates that this is the fruit of the work of not only “independent journalists”, but also state or large private intelligence corporations. If this is so, then the new scandal has specific geopolitical objectives. Due to the large number of published documents, checking their authenticity is not possible in the short term, which means that they are open to manipulation, especially in the media sphere.

Compromising the system’s enemies

The most frequently mentioned person affected by the scandal in the Western media is, of course, Vladimir Putin. The damaging information against the Russian president is a direct attack by the ruling circles of the West, and a tool of pressure against the President and a significant part of the Russian elite. They are forcing Russia to renounce an independent foreign policy, using the “exposure” and media hype around them as a tool. It is significant that the “independent journalists” also rushed to publish damaging material against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and President of South Africa Jacob Zuma. The West is leading a direct war against the former, and is trying to oust the latter because of his pro-Russian and pro-Chinese stance.

Pressure on the puppets

But if Putin’s name is not mentioned in the published documents, and if the “evidence” gathered against the Russian president is indirect, two other post-Soviet leaders, Ilham Aliyev and his family, and Petro Poroshenko, are mentioned directly. It is significant that on the eve of the publication of the material, Aliyev, during his visit to the United States, decided to launch a war in Nagorno-Karabakh. Coincidence? I do not think so. Aliyev and Poroshenko’s inclusion in the Panama Papers is a sign that the West now holds the leadership of these countries on a short leash.
