ArmInfo. Soros and similar foundations have the goal of shaping a political agenda in Armenia in both domestic and foreign policy of the country. Expert of the "Voice of the People"public club Tsovinar Kostanyan said this at a press conference.
She provided detailed information on the financial support of the 2018 Soros foundation to Armenian NGOs. In particular, it was mentioned that, for example, on December 26, 2018, the Restart student movement received $ 20,000 from the Soros Foundation.
Another expert, members of the group "The Voice of People" club, Arman Ghukasyan, stated that in 2018 grants amounting to about $ 3 million were transferred from a Soros foundation to a number of Armenian organizations. The "Union of Informed Citizens" NGO also received funding from the Open Society Armenia Foundation. <The grant of this organization was 400,000 dollars. The organization has an anti-Russian position and opposes the participation of Armenia in the EEU and the CSTO. This is nothing but interference in our domestic and foreign policy, "the experts stressed. Experts propose to introduce a new legislative regulation, which will suspend the activities of such funds in Armenia. <We must understand that non-profit organizations of Soros are working against the interests of our country. The foundation is a threat to countries such as Russia, Hungary, Israel, Austria and not harm Armenia? >, Ghukasyan said.
