The Roe v. Wade decision is part of a carefully laid plan to turn the US into a repressive regime. We must do everything we can to prevent that. project-syndicate.org/commentary/rad…
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn #RoeVWade ends federal protections for abortion, diminishes human rights, and greatly threatens reproductive care. We have invested in reproductive rights organizations that are fighting back at this moment. opensocietyfoundations.org/newsroom/the-o…
Great to meet up with @georgesoros and @AlexanderSoros. Talked about the #WesternBalkans, #EU enlargement process and #Russia’s war of aggression against #Ukraine @OpenSociety

Sri Lanka has a history of diverting aid. @IMFNews must acknowledge the reason the country is in this mess by putting this issue on the agenda during their visit. Otherwise they risk bailing out corrupt politicians instead of people in need. twitter.com/NCdeMel/status…

Putin seems to have recognized that he made a terrible mistake when he invaded Ukraine. He also seems to know how weak his position is, which could make him an even bigger threat to open societies. Read my remarks from @Davos: bit.ly/3aldhRH
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine didn’t come out of the blue. It’s the result of the increasing struggle between two diametrically opposed governance systems: open society and closed society. Watch my remarks from @Davos at 1pm EDT/7pm CEST: bloomberg.com/live/stream
Even as laws increasingly threaten reproductive rights, one company—with support from the Soros Economic Development Fund—is seeking to make oral contraception more easily available without the need for a doctor’s prescription. soroseconomicdevelopmentfund.org/investments/ca…

Russia must be held accountable for the horrific slaughter of civilians in Bucha and other places in Ukraine. Seeking justice for these atrocities will be difficult but necessary. opensocietyfoundations.org/voices/buildin…
The U.S. Supreme Court could deliver a lethal blow to #RoeVWade, which affirmed the constitutional right to abortion. But, “Roe never fully protected Black women—or poor women or so many others,” @OpenSociety #JusticeRising awardee @monicarsimpson says. nyti.ms/3xCRQ8r

I mourn the passing of John Menzies. When I established a foundation in Bulgaria, he had already prepared the ground, selecting a board I could trust. We remained in touch as he represented the U.S. in various Balkan countries. I held him in high regard. sofiaglobe.com/2022/03/29/ame…

The U.S. Government has finally recognized formally what the world has long known: Myanmar’s military committed genocide against the Rohingya in 2017 with its targeted killing of thousands that led to the forced displacement of over 900,000. opensocietyfoundations.org/newsroom/open-…

The people of Ukraine are determined to stand up against Putin’s invasion and defend their dream of a free, democratic country. Open Society has launched the Ukraine Democracy Fund to support them. opensocietyfoundations.org/newsroom/open-…
Madeleine Albright was an astute stateswoman, scholar, and a true champion for freedom and democracy. She was a trailblazer in her field. My colleagues and I at the @OpenSociety Foundations mourn her passing today. We will miss her.
Brave Ukrainians are on the frontline and risking their lives. The horrible images coming out of Ukraine remind me of living in hiding in war torn Budapest in 1944 and the siege of Sarajevo in 1993. #StandWithUkraine georgesoros.com/2022/02/26/we-…
Allowing Putin to succeed on his quest will send a message across the world that nations can simply be created or dissolved by brute force. We must #StandWithUkraine, as they stand for us.
Putin’s actions are a direct attack on the sovereignty of all States that were once in the Soviet Union, and beyond. Russia is in clear violation of the United Nations charter and should be held accountable.
It is important that both the transatlantic alliance (the United States, Canada, the European Union, and the United Kingdom) but also other nations do whatever is in their power to support Ukraine in its time of existential threat.
Brave Ukrainians are now on the frontline and risking their lives in an onslaught that reminds me of the siege of Budapest in 1944 and the siege of Sarajevo in 1993.
I have witnessed Ukraine transform from a collapsing part of the Soviet Union to a liberal democracy and an open society. It has faced countless acts of Russian aggression, but has persisted.
Ukraine does not present any military threat to Russia, which manufactured this crisis to deprive Ukraine of its right to self-determination and to undermine European security and solidarity. #StandWithUkraine opensocietyfoundations.org/newsroom/open-…

Paul was unbending in his belief that high quality health care could be delivered in resource-poor settings. The world will miss him in these troubled times.
He will be remembered for his tremendous contribution to reducing inequity in health care—from addressing HIV in Haiti to an extreme variety of TB in Lesotho to working to stop the spread of Ebola.
I first met Paul in 1995, when he was working on an effort to combat the epidemic of multi-drug resistant TB in Russian prisons. It was the first of many projects that we would work on together, including on the organization he created, Partners in Health @PIH.
We mourn the untimely passing of Paul Farmer—a long time partner of the @OpenSociety Foundations who was dedicated to bringing health care to vulnerable communities. miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo…

In China, omicron is no longer under control despite its strict “zero Covid” policy. This could be Xi Jinping's undoing either during or after his prestige project, the Winter Olympics. georgesoros.com/2022/01/31/geo…
China’s Xi Jinping is the greatest threat that open societies face today. The country’s roiling real estate market, falling population, and fast-spreading omicron variant might be his undoing, all during his prestige project of the Winter Olympics. bit.ly/3rZLn2K
