Russia Finally Begins Expelling America's NGO 'Missionaries' (Izvestia, Russia)


"The National Endowment for Democracy does essentially what the missionaries did, with the difference that they aren’t demanding that the natives change their religion, but instead move toward 'democracy' (the modern form of colonization).They seek a change in political affiliation and at the same time a rejection of national tradition. In fact, NED missionaries are essentially turning up at foreign monasteries with a charter to demand that the natives abandon their own charter for a new one brought by outsiders. … They win souls and reinforce their influence with dollars. Dollars are handed out under the broad aim of 'supporting' or 'spreading' democracy."

Russia - Izvestia - Original Article (Russian)

Politician and writer Edward Limonov asks who the National Endowment for Democracy really works for.


The American NGO the National Endowment for Democracy [NED] was finally added to the list of organizations unwelcomed to work in our country. It happened only last week.


It should have happened a long time ago.


I remember the birth of this organization. Its English name - The National Endowment for Democracy – is for some reason missing something important from its title: any reference to the U.S. government. But these two little letters are important as they would clearly indicate its origins, raison d'etre and the country on whose behalf it disseminates propaganda and exports democracy to so-far non-democracies.


In 1983, the fluttering NED bird emerged from the hands of devout anti-communist, former actor and exalted President Ronald Reagan, who at the time led the crusade against the Soviet Union.


Remember when he called the USSR the "Evil Empire?" [video, upper, right].




This man, the founding father of the NED, was a passionate anti-communist at a time when there were no real communists left in the USSR. That wuss Gorbachev was already in power.


Despite the fact that the NED organization is administered not by members of the U.S. government but by a council of dull former bureaucrats and university professors - none of whom speak Russian - its funds are drawn from the American state approved by the U.S. Congress. Every year the NED receives U.S. budget appropriations.


So what do they do - these people of the NED?


Vicious tongues suggest that the NED has taken over some of the CIA's responsibilities for undermining the political systems in countries objectionable to the United States. Without a vicious tongue, however, let’s take a look and try and understand what they’re doing.


This is what I think they’re up to.


Have you ever read a book about Catholic missionaries in Africa, China or South America? I’m sure you have. Modest and quiet, bony hands gripping prayer books, wearing cassocks and waving incense, these warriors of faith arrived on wild coasts in rickety ships to meet distant peoples completely alien to them to entice them from their national beliefs and impose someone else's.


With their beliefs they imported the European way of life and the European psyche, so by the time warships loaded with European colonizers arrived off the same coasts the inhabitants either didn’t defend themselves or when they put up resistance it wasn't too much.


The Missionaries were Successful.


They successfully introduced another god into the souls of aboriginals and in thus brought entire countries and peoples under the control of European civilization - even entire continents and archipelagos in the case of South America or The Philippines. They had tremendous success in China until they were finally ejected by the emperors. They even managed to get a toehold in Japan, but some of the shoguns profited them from doing their work and forced them to flee.


So the NED does essentially what the missionaries did, with the difference that they aren’t demanding that the natives change their religion but instead move toward "democracy" (the modern form of colonization).They seek a change in political affiliation and at the same time a rejection of national tradition. In fact, NED missionaries are essentially turning up at foreign monasteries with a charter to demand that the natives abandon their own charter for a new one brought by outsiders.


They win souls and reinforce their influence with dollars. Dollars are handed out under the broad aim of “supporting” or “spreading" democracy.


Is it possible that American citizens, now under arrest in Cairo, were involved with a plot to partition Egypt into four...

Googling the English-language NED Web site, I couldn’t find a single report about Russia. I did this yesterday and have the impression that details about Russia have been deleted. Yet there remained some eloquent words about Ukraine from 2012.


I will not bore the reader with a long list of Ukrainian organizations that have received financial aid from the NED, but allow me to highlight the main benefactors receiving NED grants.


I is striking that a majority of these grants were received by the following types of organizations:


-         Regional youth organizations

-         Voter committees

-         Journalistic associations


I name just a few here in order for you to understand the principle:


-         The Volynskaya Youth Organization

-         Vinnitsa (Human Rights NGO)

-         Sumi (Youth Organization)

-         Odessa Voters Committee

-         Young Cherkashians (Cherkasskaya region)

-         Cherkasskiy Voters’ Committee

-         Chernigovskaya Youth Organization

-         Chernovtsiy Voters Committee

-         Bakhchisaraiskiy Centre (Employment Center)

-         Bukhovinskoe Agency (regional development)

-         Dnepropetrovskiy Youth Center

-         Organizations in Sumiy, Kherson, Kharkov, etc.


The sums range from $25,000 to $50,000 - but there are larger amounts. It’s not about the sums but more the thoughtful elegance with which they’ve patronized the type of Ukrainians they need most. These are the people who went on to take part in the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, either as activists, journalists or angry voters.

They stood for an American style democracy against the Berkut (Ukrainian special police).


In 2011, the NED actively supported Arab youth movements who soon later participted in the Middle East Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.


So we need not limit ourselves to the NED for inclusion on the list of undesirable organizations - we should decisively expel all the missionaries from Russia.


And never allow them to return! Let them forget the path to our doorstep.
