American multi-billionaire George Soros has allocated $10 mln of his personal funds to an organisation seeking to defeat George Bush at the forthcoming US presidential elections.
In his written statement, George Soros reported that "George Bush was leading the country in the wrong direction" and announced his intention to support the pro-democratic organisation America to Unite.
According to the billionaire, creation of this organisation was an efficient means to mobilise the civil society, to persuade people to come to the polls to vote for the candidates who would confirm values of the greatest open society in the world.
A great number of public figures famous for their support of candidates from the US Democratic Party made the management of the organisation. They are planning to defeat Bush as well as to achieve victories of Democratic candidates at the congressional elections in 17 key states.
George Soros, the founder of the "Open Society Institute" (New York), is well known in Russia for his charitable activities. His funds were used to create the Russian branch of the "Open Society Institute" and to finance its successful operations.
