Ukrainian crisis might be the start of WWIII - Soros

Billionaire George Soros stated at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday, that the "invasion of Ukraine" might have triggered the beginning of World War Three, according to a transcript of his address given by his office.

Soros noted that the conflict "has shaken Europe to its core," underlining that the European Union was designed to prevent such a thing from occurring. He emphasized that even when the conflict ends, the situation in Europe will never revert to what it was before. The billionaire warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin may not wait for the EU to develop alternative sources of energy before halting gas supplies to the region.

"The best and perhaps the only way to preserve our civilization is to defeat Putin as soon as possible," said Soros. In addition to that, he accused Chinese President Xi Jinping of knowing Putin's plans for the "special military operation" in Ukraine, noting that both leaders rule by "intimidation."
