REVEALED: George Soros Funded Russia’s Sinister Plot To Cripple US Oil Production Before Their Ukraine Invasion

Share this:

A Climate Depot article about a congressional report in 2018 detailed “Russian attempts to influence” and fund environmental groups to oppose fracking in Europe and the U.S.

The reason is obvious since Russia relies on oil and gas exports for its very survival. There is more to this story. George Soros gives to the same groups surreptitiously.

This was reported back in 2018 after The Daily Signal summarized the involvement of Russia and George Soros, who now has operatives employed in the White House.

Russia funneled money to a corporation that funds radical environmental groups that are vehemently opposed to fossil fuels and fracking in the United States. The corporation is active in New York, northern and western Pennsylvania, western Ohio, most of West Virginia, and small portions of Kentucky and Tennessee as well as other states. The Daily Signal has researched their advocacy and financing in energy policies in New York.

The Daily Signal wrote:

Two environmental advocacy groups that successfully lobbied against fracking in New York each received more than $10 million in grants from a foundation in California that got financial support from a Bermuda company congressional investigators linked to the Russians, public documents show, according to The Daily Signal.

The environmental groups Natural Resources Defense Council and the Sierra Club Foundation received millions of dollars in grants from the San Francisco-based Sea Change Foundation.


When New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, renewed his state’s ban on fracking three years ago, the Natural Resources Defense Council issued a statement supporting the ban. So did the Sierra Club, the primary recipient of grants from its sister organization, the Sierra Club Foundation.

Environmental activists associated with the groups receiving Sea Change Foundation grants continued to pressure Cuomo and other public officials to maintain and expand New York’s fracking ban.

First Exposed July 2017, Ties to Soros

This is an issue that was exposed in July 2017. It appears that the Russian-backed groups are groups George Soros also funds.

Republican Reps. Lamar Smith and Randy Weber sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on June 29, 2017, requesting he investigate allegations that Russia has financially backed anti-fracking campaigns in the U.S. to “safeguard the influence of the Russian oil and gas sector.”

“According to reports, entities connected to the Russian government are using a shell company registered in Bermuda, Klein LTD. (Klein), to funnel tens of millions of dollars to a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) private foundation, the Sea Change Foundation,” the letter stated.

The Sea Change Foundation is accused of funneling the money from Klein to the environmental groups. However, they deny any ties to Russia.

The Foundation received $23 million from Klein and their only other donor was the founder. There is no evidence of grants or other sources of funds.

The exposure didn’t change a thing. Sea Change gave millions of dollars each year to “climate change mitigation and clean energy policy.” They went to climate projects to promote clean energy and reduce reliance on carbon energy. Sea Change is also anti-fracking.

The League of Conservation Voters, Center for American Progress, and Union of Concerned Scientists have all advocated for stronger regulations on fracking as well.

The donation list:

In 2010 and 2011, Sea Change gave away nearly $100 million to the Tides Foundation, the Sierra Club Foundation, the Energy Foundation, and 34 other groups, according to Foundation Directory. At least eight of those groups received more than $20.7 million from Soros combined.

There is more on this link about the radical, boisterous groups both Russia and Soros appear to have funded. For all his anti-Russia and anti-Communist talk, Soros appears to have a lot in common with Putin.


The 2018 Congressional Republican Report noted that in January 2017, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a report stating there is “clear evidence that the Kremlin is financing and choreographing anti-fracking propaganda in the United States.” …

“Hillary Clinton, with access to intelligence reports, made a private speech in 2014…about the struggles of dealing with Russian-backed environmental groups…Secretary Clinton said: ‘We [the State Department and the U.S.] were up against Russia pushing oligarchs and others to buy media. We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand against any effort, ‘oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you,’ and a lot of the money supporting that message was coming from Russia.’”

Because the anti-pollution movement was hijacked by climate change. Pollution can be solved by attacking the problem technically. “Climate change” can only be solved by controlling people.

No matter how well meaning (if it ever was so), once that construct is socialized it is susceptible to being hijacked by those with other intentions as we see here. And Putin is not the only one. US (globalist) energy companies are all for the green movement if not entirely behind it. It drives prices through the roof and dries up any competitors with huge barriers to competition. In the end though, as with the Hubble Curve that predicted oil depletion by now, the true goal is to manipulate perceptions so we believe ultimately in one “green” solution – nuclear power. The forced move to electric vehicles Biden announced with no new energy sources will force us back in that direction.

No decent person agrees with Putin’s invasion. However, he has legitimate grievances and was provoke by the US and NATO into this invasion. Not only are we to blame, but we could stop the carnage in an instant by agreeing to a neutral Ukraine and one never to be admitted to NATO.

Stick to the truth. Nothing wrong with funding legitimate groups that support causes you agree with. Soros is evil for sure, but not in this case.
