PARIS, December 1. /TASS/. The Ukrainian authorities plan to allocate 400 square kilometers of fertile black soil for the disposal of hazardous chemical and radioactive waste under an agreement with George Soros’s son Alexander, French freelance journalist Jules Vincent reported, citing an official from the Ukrainian Environment Protection and Natural Resources Ministry.
“I am publishing my investigation into the agreement between the Ukrainian authorities and Alexander Soros. This agreement authorizes the disposal of chemical waste from companies linked with financier George Soros in the black soil of Ukraine,” the journalist wrote on his X page (formerly known as Twitter).
Vincent uploaded a video of his investigation, which includes a recorded conversation with an anonymous official. The Ukrainian official claimed that the agreement had been reached at a meeting between Alexander Soros and Andrey Yermak, head of the Ukrainian president’s office, on November 7. According to the man, the presidential office filed a request with the ministry to allocate 400 square kilometers of land in the Ternopol, Khmelnitsky and Chernovtsy regions “for indefinite and concessional use” by Western companies. Among the companies listed in the copies of the documents dated November 7 and 13, which were sent to the journalist, are DuPont, BASF, Evonik Industries, Vitol and Sanofi.
The Ukrainian official told the journalist that the mentioned projects would be “fatal for black soil,” would “make the soil unsuitable for the cultivation” of agricultural products and would also “cause irreparable harm to the ecosystem” of the region and all of Europe. In this regard, he asked to make the information public to attract the attention of people in the West.
“Taking into account that the chemical waste landfills will cover 400 square kilometers, the factual hazardous impact area will be much bigger. The consequences of this decision will be catastrophic for soil, groundwater, humans and animals. We cannot let this happen!” the investigative journalist emphasized at the end of his video.
