The news that Ukraine has made an agreement with a series of companies to authorize the burial of toxic waste on its land is unconfirmed. Faktoje’s verification revealed that documents submitted as evidences refer to a presidential decree not related to the subject.
A series of Russian media, as well as some Albanian-speaking ones, have shared the news that Soros family has made an agreement with Kiev providing for toxic waste from of some companies to be buried in Ukraine’s arable land.

The article of “Syri” explained that “Ukrainian authorities plan to allocate 400 square kilometers of arable land for the disposal of hazardous chemical and radioactive waste. This is stated in an agreement signed by Alexander Soros, the son of the ultra-leftist billionaire George Soros.”
The document in question was made public by a French journalist, Jules Vincent, on X.
Our verifications show that Alexander Soros did indeed meet with the Chief of Staff of the President of Ukraine, Andriy Yermak, on November 7, 2023. However, reports of the meeting do not mention any agreement.
Meanwhile, the document presented as evidence of this agreement, in two paragraphs, appears to do nothing other than express Yermak’s ‘intention’ to initiate legal proceedings to transfer ‘land’ to the ownership of giant European companies, and Soros’s intention to facilitate communication between the Ukrainian president’s office and these companies.
Furthermore, lack of specific details and official indicators such as signatures creates doubt on the authenticity of this document.
To verify this, Faktoje decided to check the content of presidential decree 107/2023, which is quoted in the above-mentioned document as the legal basis for the alleged agreement.
According to the official website of the Ukrainian presidency, decree No. 107/2023 is not related to any concessionary agreement mediated by Soros. Decree 107/2023, signed on February 23, 2023 states the declaration of Major Oleh Vasyliovich as a Hero of Ukraine.
Thus, the sensational news that Alexander Soros made an agreement with Kiev to deposit hazardous waste in Ukraine remains unconfirmed.
