Russian Romance” is a genre closely accompanied by substance abuse, domestic violence, and abandoned children. In the early Soviet era, the genre was less favored, as it was seen as a vestige of the pre-revolutionary decadent bourgeoisie. Contemporary Anglo-American romance novels expect a certain kind of ‘happily ever after’. This is Russia and its realities, not America’s fantasies.

The late Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr (1922 – 2019) always had some political fantasy about Russia: a modern time sort of “Russian Romance”.

When he was a Marxist-Leninist Trotskyite (calling himself Lyn Marcus as short for ‘Lenin and Marx’), LaRouche was an ardent supporter of Soviet Union. But after his violent fight against the US Communist Party in 1973 (LaRouche’s so-called Operation Mop-Up), he U-turned in favor of far-right American nationalism and later became a great supporter of US president Ronald Reagan and his 1983 anti-ballistic “Strategic Defense Initiative” (SDI). While dealing with the Reagan administration, he then claimed to have some back channels with the Soviet regime, adding that the “SDI” was “his” and he cracked the Soviet regime adding that he “predicted” it! LaRouche was a megalomaniac and created then a political cult whose members are known called “larouchies”.

However, his “American Romance” with Ronald Reagan ended in 1986, after hundreds of state and federal officers raided his offices in Virginia and Massachusetts. Later, in December 1988, a federal jury in Alexandria convicted LaRouche and six associates of conspiracy and mail fraud in his group’s solicitation of $34 million in loans since 1983. In January 1989, LaRouche was sentenced and incarcerated by Robert Mueller to fifteen years in prison to 15-year for conspiracy and fraud.

Having, as a consequence, lost his U.S. government connections, which LaRouche and his “larouchies” enjoyed in the 1980s, he focused on moving his connections with political leaders in other countries such as Russia and China.

Shilpa Jindia wrote in Mother Jones about crank LaRouche:

The international cult leader has long-standing ties to Russia — and Robert Mueller. […]

Well, I think the question of Bill Clinton is sometimes confused. Bill was framed,” Lyndon LaRouche replied. “ And he was framed by the Queen of England.

It was typical fare from LaRouche, the 96-year-old leader of a fascist political cult group that has long pitched a variety of dark conspiracy theories, including his pet notion that a Zionist British aristocratic oligarchy secretly orchestrates world events. The queen has long been a favored villain of LaRouche, who has claimed she presides over the international narcotics trade. He has also accused Henry Kissinger of being a Soviet double agent, and has led a campaign for opera to be sung at a lower pitch. While LaRouche’s followers and their wild ideas have been a sideshow for five decades — as they have distributed leaflets and crashed political events — he earned surprising prominence in the 1970s and 1980s, before a 1988 federal conviction for mail fraud sent him to prison for five years.1

The dissolution of Soviet Union occurred in December 1991, while LaRouche was still in jail. He claimed his “SDI” caused the fall of communism in Russia! He was serving a minimum of five years in prison before he was eligible for parole in 1994.

LaRouche is widely dismissed in the West as a megalomaniac fascist cult leader and a wing-nut conspiracist, not so in Russia or China. So, after the fall of the Soviet regime, unknown LaRouche came back to Russia dressed up as an American far-right nationalist seeking alliances with Russian far-right nationalists.



Despite his international poor reputation, LaRouche’s adepts found themselves officially invited in Russia by the Kremlin in 2016 along with other “supporting various US political figures” that included “presidential candidate Jill Stein of the Green Party, Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page, and former DIA director Michael Flynn.” The dossier went on to say that the effort to cultivate these figures had been “successful in terms of perceived outcomes.”2

This information was revealed by the so-called Trump–Russia dossier also known as the Steele dossier, released in 2016. It says on pages 15-16:

4. Speaking separately, also in early August 2016, a Kremlin official involved in US relations commented on aspects of the Russian operation to date. Its goals had been threefold- asking sympathetic US actors how Moscow could help then, gathering relevant intelligence; and creating and disseminabrg compromising information (‘kompromat). This had involved the Kremlin supporting various US political figures, including funding indirectly their recent visits to Moscow. S/he named a delegation from Lyndon LAROUCHE; presidential candidate Jill STEIN of the Green Party; TRUMP foreign policy adviser Carter PAGE; and former CIA Director Michael Flynn, in this regard and as successful in terms of perceived outcomes.

10 August 2016

Christopher Steele is a former head of the Russia Desk for British intelligence (MI6) and his Trump–Russia dossier (also known as the Steele dossier), is a private intelligence report comprising 17 memos written between June and December 2016 for the private investigative firm Fusion GPS. Christopher Steele then passed on what he had discovered to David Corn, a reporter from Mother Jones magazine.

According to the Steele dossier’s conclusions, the Kremlin invited these US political figures, in pursuit of its objective to influence the 2016 US presidential election won by Donald Trump.

Mother Jones points at this RT News (formerly ‘Russia Today’) event of December 1, 2015, where Jill Stein and Michael Flynn were invited to Moscow. RT News notes:.

Among the speakers and panelists will be Ken Livingstone, mayor of London during the 2005 terrorist attacks and recently appointed co-chair for the UK’s opposition defense review; Cyril Svoboda, former- deputy prime minister, minister of foreign affairs, and interior minister of the Czech Republic, who led the negotiations on Czech accession to the EU; Jill Stein, a US politician and the Green Party’s 2012 presidential candidate; Willy Wimmer, German statesman and ex-VP of the OSCE; Patricia Villegas, president of pan-Latin American news network teleSUR; Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, former head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency, the country’s main foreign military espionage organization; noted CIA whistleblower Raymond McGovern, and RT’s own editor in chief, Margarita Simonyan.


This was likely the event where the larouchies were invited to.

An August 2016 memo from this Steele’s dossier states that after Russia’s hand had been discovered in the hacking of Democratic party emails and passing them to WikiLeaks for publication, another avenue of influence would be explored: “the tactics would be to spread rumors and misinformation about the content of what already had been leaked and make up new content”.

Donald J. Trump and his backers say revelations about the Steele dossier show the Russia investigation was a “hoax.” So did LaRouche in 2018: Another Hoax from Christopher Steele: Executive Intelligence Review; Volume 45, Issue 12.

On October 31, 2016, a week before the US election, Mother Jones reported that an unnamed former intelligence officer had produced such a report based on Russian sources and turned it over to the FBI. The article disclosed some of the dossier’s allegations about Trump being compromised by Russian intelligence.3 The Christopher Steele’s dossier can be found here.

Shilpa Jindia wrote for Mother Jones:

Also under-examined has been a tantalizing clue about possible ties between LaRouche’s organization and Moscow. Buried in Christopher Steele’s dossier on Trump’s possible links to Russia was an August 2016 report with this allegation: A “Kremlin official involved in US relations” had claimed that Russia facilitated a LaRouche delegation’s trip to Moscow, offering members of LaRouche’s group assistance and enlisting them in an effort to disseminate “compromising information” as part of the Kremlin’s 2016 influence campaign.4


The dossier became one of the most controversial parts of the FBI’s 2016 investigation into Trump and Russia, known as “Crossfire Hurricane,” the code name for the counterintelligence investigation undertaken by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from July 31, 2016, to May 17, 2017, into links between Russian officials and associates of Donald Trump and “whether individuals associated with [his] presidential campaign were coordinating, wittingly or unwittingly, with the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election”.5 The FBI’s work was taken over on May 17, 2017, by the Special Counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller in 2017–2019. which eventually resulted in the “Mueller Report.” The report was submitted to Attorney General William Barr on March 22, 2019, and a redacted version of the 448-page report was publicly released by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on April 18, 2019.

The Mueller Report – A PBS NewsHour/FRONTLINE Special

Mueller and LaRouche

Although LaRouche was not mentioned in his “Report”, Robert Mueller is no stranger to LaRouche: Mueller was a key player in the 1980s investigation that sent LaRouche to jail. LaRouche is known to Mueller after he succeeded William Weld as acting U.S. Attorney in 1986, and as a prosecutor, he incarcerated LaRouche for fifteen years in prison in 1989.

The ‘Mueller Report’ concluded that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election did occur “in sweeping and systematic fashion” and “violated U.S. criminal law”. The larouchies of course reject the “Mueller report” as fake, and blame the British or Ukrainians for interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election against Trump.6

LaRouche was not mentioned in this report, but the only person under investigation who can be related to LaRouche was his friend Roger Stone.7 Roger Stone, the GOP operative and self-described “dirty trickster,” was in contact with the LaRouche crowd since the 1980s when he was working for the Ronald Reagan campaign.

Shilpa Jindia wrote further about the possibly recent LaRoucheStone relation:

A lawyer with ties to both Stone and LaRouche’s network has claimed that he introduced Stone to a key LaRouche aide in early 2016, as Trump began to secure the Republican nomination.

While Stone’s interactions with the LaRouche crowd may at first blush seem bizarre, Stone himself has long been a conspiracy theorist. In 2014, he published a book claiming that Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination of John F. Kennedy. And in recent years, he has forged a political alliance with Alex Jones, the chieftain of Infowars who has peddled noxious conspiracy theories, including the claim that the 2012 Newtown massacre was a hoax.8

The lawyer is Douglas Caddy9, a private practice attorney in Houston, Texas. Caddy sent a letter to Special Counsel Robert Mueller about Roger Stone and LaRouche in 2017. Caddy, who is author of the excellent Being There: Eye Witness To History book published in 2018, explained that:

In January 2016 Harley Schlanger of the LaRouche organization contacted me to request that I set up a meeting for him with Roger Stone of the Trump Campaign. Their meeting was held in Austin, Texas, in February 2016. I was unable to attend but my impression is that as a result of that meeting the LaRouche organization agreed to use its extensive Russian contacts to open up a back channel for the Trump campaign to communicate directly with Russian intelligence.10

Suspicions about Roger Stone’s Russian officials’ connections:

On January 25, 2019, Stone was arrested at his Fort Lauderdale, Florida home in connection with Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation and charged in an indictment with witness tampering, obstructing an official proceeding, and five counts of making false statements. He pleaded not guilty and denied wrongdoing in press interviews. Stone was convicted on all seven counts on November 15, 2019, and is due to be sentenced in February 2020. His sentence was later commuted by Trump.

In August 2020, the larouchies came in Stone’s defense11:

Aug. 2, 2020 (EIRNS)—Roger Stone gave a 30-minute interview with LaRouchePAC’s Harley Schlanger, which will be released in the Aug. 3 “Daily Update” video.12 The full 3-hour video is available here.

So did Harley Schlanger on his Blog:

As Roger Stone suggested, this is the ultimate reason for Russiagate, the recognition by the corrupt and bankrupt establishment that the “prophetic” ideas of Lyndon LaRouche could be implemented by the “outsider”, Donald Trump. It will be up to an awakened section of the electorate to take this battle plan and deploy with it, to rebuild the coalition that led to Trump’s 2016 victory. Such a development will make this campaign unlike any in recent memory, where voters give up their complacency, and overcome the brainwashing of the media, to become a deciding factor in directing the future of the American constitutional republic.13

Suspicions about Harley Schlanger’s Russian officials’ connections:

Harley Schlanger is Vice President of the Schiller Institute USA and National Spokesman for Lyndon LaRouche. He used to operate from Houston (Texas) in the U.S. He is now living with his family in Potsdam, Germany.

Schlanger is also a self-employed consultant at the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) where he posts his analyses.

The Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) is a non-profit academic and diplomatic think tank established by the presidential decree dated 2 February 2010. Its founders are:

The RIAC is one of Russia’s public diplomacy tools. Its president is Igor Ivanov who was Foreign Minister of Russia from 1998 to 2004 under Putin.

Lawyer Douglas Caddy noted in his letter sent to Special Counsel Robert Mueller :

A month before Schlanger contacted me to set up the meeting with Stone, a LaRouche delegation sympathetic to Russia attended the RT anniversary dinner in Moscow in December 2015 where Premier Putin was seated next to General Flynn. For confirmation see the bottom of page 15 and top of page 16 of the famous Christopher Steele British Dossier. Schlanger may have been among those who attended.15

So this is not a surprise that larouchies (Schlanger or else) were invited. Schlanger is part of LaRouche’s network in Russia that started shortly after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991.


1992: LaRouche’s “Schiller Institute for Science and Culture” was established in Moscow

While still in jail, LaRouche ran for President again in 1992 with James Bevel as his running mate, a former civil rights activist and anti-communist MOONIE who had represented the LaRouche movement. LaRouche received 26,334 votes, standing again as the “Economic Recovery” party.

LaRouche’s usual strategy to access to political leadership is hiding behind scientific or cultural “apolitical” academic think-tanks. So in 1992, LaRouche’s “Schiller Institute for Science and Culture” was established in Moscow as a Russian branch of LaRouche’s international Schiller Institute.

So while still in jail, LaRouche’s “Schiller Institute” sponsored their first-ever conference in post-communist Moscow, on October 30-31, 1992 to announce the release of a Russian-language edition of LaRouche’s textbook on physical economy, “So You Wish To Learn All About Economics?”16 It was translated in January 1993, and published by the Schiller Institute and the Ukrainian University in Moscow whose rector Dr. Taras Muranivksy, co-chaired this first-ever Schiller Institute conference in Moscow in 1992. The conference was held at the Russian State Humanitarian University and was attended by over 50 individuals representing leading political and academic institutions within Russia.

LaRouche’s economic ideas attracted interest among some members of the elite who were unhappy with the laissez-faire policies that prevailed under then-President Boris Yeltsin. LaRouche had visits from Russia in his jail that year.17

LaRouche’s concepts on “physical economy” were in fact an improved theory drawn from Marx and Engels’ “dialectical materialism”. It is therefore not surprising that LaRouche’s textbook on “physical economy,” “So You Wish To Learn All About Economics?” rang a bell to some Russian academics who were raised, trained and educated in Marx and Engels’ theories.

When he was a Marxist-Leninist Trotskyite, Lyndon LaRouche called himself Lyn Marcus (short for Lenin and Marx) and was then an ardent supporter of Soviet Union. He wrote and published in 1975 Dialectical Economics: An Introduction to Marxist Political Economy under his pen name ”Lyn Marcus”.

“So You Wish To Learn All About Economics?” was first published in 1984 when LaRouche had connections to the anti-communist US president Ronald Reagan. LaRouche was then strongly anti-communist and an ultra-nationalist who had connections with American fascists and former German Nazis.18

On Oct. 1, 1993, at the height of the political crisis in Moscow, when Boris Yeltsin crushed the parliament of the Russian Federation by force, the widely read daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta printed a full-page article on how LaRouche had achieved his status as an American political prisoner: by his authorship of the “Strategic Defense Initiative!” (S.D.I.) policy, and by organizing worldwide opposition to the “International Monetary Fund”. More than a dozen Russian elected officials and other political activists signed appeals for LaRouche to be freed from prison.

On Oct. 14, LaRouche was elected a corresponding member of the “International Ecological Academy of Russia”, or “Academy of 100”— the first non-governmental scholarly society to be founded in the former U.S.S.R.19

During 1993, two prominent Russian intellectuals were able to visit LaRouche at the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, Minn., where he was incarcerated, to interview him for Russian periodicals. Professor Muranivsky, visited on May 10, is an editorial board member of the journal Profsoyuzy i Ekonomika (Trade Unions and Economics), which circulates among the intelligentsia, workers, and professional economists. Mr. Viktor A. Kuzin, who met with LaRouche on Nov. 1, was a founding member of “Democratic Union”, the first organization to declare itself a political party in opposition to the ruling Communist Party of the Soviet Union, in 1988. He was elected to the Moscow City Council in 1990 and headed its sub-committee on the “Defense of Civil Rights”, until the Council was dissolved by Boris Yeltsin in October 1993. He is a special correspondent of Svobodnoye Slovo (Free Word), the newspaper of “Democratic Union.”20

On Nov. 21, 1993, as a continuation of the dialogue begun in the interviews with Prof. Muranivsky and Mr. Kuzin, LaRouche authored the essay “On LaRouche’s Discovery” for circulating among some academics and intelligentsia in Russia.

But these academic discussions were not the end goal of LaRouche’s activism in Russia. The target was gaining some political influence.

LaRouche was released on parole on January 27, 1994, and was seen by some in Russia such as Dr. Kuznetsov as a “political prisoner”21

That same year, the widely read daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta printed a full-page article on how LaRouche had achieved his status as an “American political prisoner” by his claimed authorship of Reagan’s “Strategic Defense Initiative!” (S.D.I.) policy. More than a dozen Russian elected officials and other political activists signed appeals for LaRouche to be freed from prison. 22 23


Here LaRouche is pictured in front of the Kremlin in April 1994.

In 1994, LaRouche got support from Russian ultra-nationalists such as Sergey Glazyev.

LaRouche was back for the first time in Moscow in April 1994 for more “lectures and discussion”, sponsored by the Economic Academy of the Ministry of Economics of the Russian Federation. He addressed seminars at three institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences: the Institute on Scientific Information on Social Science (INION), the Institute of Oriental Studies, and the Africa Institute.

Anton Shekhovtsov, a Ukrainian academic and writer who is known for his writings on the European radical right and, in particular, its connections to Russia, wrote about LaRouche’s support from Russian ultra-nationalist Sergey Glazyev who favors nationalist President Vladimir Putin.

Shekhovtsov wrote:

Around this time, Glazyev forged relationships with Lyndon LaRouche, a US-based political activist and founder of the LaRouche movement. […] Glazyev and LaRouche most likely met in person for the first time in April 1994, when LaRouche and his wife and associate Helga Zepp-LaRouche travelled to Russia and addressed a number of workshops, including one at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow.252627

Shekhovtsov also wrote in his excellent Russia and the Western Far Right: Tango Noir book, that LaRouche, a former supporter of the Soviet regime U-turned and accused it for its ‘worldwide imperial hegemony, the “Third and Final Rome”, blaming the Russian Orthodox Church and ‘Matushka Rus’ (Motherland Russia):

In 1986, LaRouche wrote about the ‘decisive cultural inferiority’ of the Russians and warned about ‘barbarians overrunning Western Europe from the East’ as ‘part of the enemy’s stock-in-trade in ancient and medieval times, as well as in the instance of the Holy Alliance’s adoption of Russian hordes as the “policeman of Europe”. When LaRouche ran his presidential primary campaign in 1988, he stressed that Russia was dreaming of ‘the world conquest’ and was preparing for ‘an all-out, surprise attack on the United States some time during the 1990s’ His views on the Russians were blatantly racist28, and he described ‘a typical Russian’ as ‘a lazy, drunken, superstitious, immoral beast’.29

This was a U-turn from LaRouche’s as he “predicted” that communist Russia under the influence of the “Third Rome”‘s celebration in 1988 by the Russian orthodox church that year meant that Russia was seeking world domination that year!

The LaRouchian anti-communism was deceptive. Former Trotskyite LaRouche was in fact keen on Stalin’s authoritarian economics and politics. Dennis King, the author of the well-documented, must-read 1989 book Lyndon Larouche and the New American Fascism, in its chapter 19:

LaRouchian publications until the death of Leonid Brezhnev [in 1982] expressed an affection for hard-line Stalinism because of its no-nonsense attitude toward Zionists and other dissenters and its commitment to central economic planning. New Solidarity’s obituary on Brezhnev praised him as a ‘nation builder’ and avoided any mention of his invasions of Czechoslovakia and Afghanistan. Thereafter, as LaRouche became more heavily involved in supporting Star Wars and NATO, the NCLC line changed. Moscow became the ‘Third Rome,’ a center of unremitting Russian Orthodox evil. When Gorbachev took power, the LaRouchians said he was the Antichrist.

Read book online.

LaRouche used to call then Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev “The man with the mark of the beast on his forehead”.

Independent scholar Matthew N. Lyons also notes:

As [Dennis, note] King details, from 1974 to about 1983 members of the LaRouche network also repeatedly met and shared information with KGB officers and other Soviet officials. The LaRouchites claimed that they served as “the ‘open channel’ through which the KGB could pass ‘policy-relevant’ information to the CIA, and vice versa.”

The LaRouchites don’t like to talk about this part of their own history nowadays, but they have nothing but praise for ex-KGB officer Vladimir Putin. In 2011, for example, LaRouche applauded the nomination of Putin (who was then serving as prime minister) to return to the office of president (which he had previously held in 2000-2008):

“This assertion of leadership sends a clear message of defiance against the British Empire’s divide-and-conquer games, and represents a major step forward toward a new Pacific-centered recovery program for the entire world.”33

Matthew N Lyons adds:

Having lost the U.S. government connections they enjoyed in the 1980s, the LaRouchites worked to expand their ties with political elites in other countries — above all, Russia. In recent years, the LaRouchites have increasingly emphasized the importance of Russia on the world stage, and have largely aligned themselves with President Vladimir Putin’s international policies, for example on the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine.31

Despite his once virulent anti-communism and his racism against the Russians, LaRouche was still a “useful idiot” because of his old GOP 32 connections in the US and reputation especially among ultra-nationalist conspiracy theorists such as Alex Jones (Infowars) or Roger Stone.

Matthew N Lyons added that in the West, LaRouche is considered a crank :

In the United States, Lyndon LaRouche is widely dismissed as a wing-nut conspiracist — a guy who claims that Queen Elizabeth pushes drugs. But in Russia, LaRouchite ideology is taken seriously by high-ranking politicians and scholars, and is cross-pollinating with the ideas of Russian far rightists such as Aleksandr Dugin.30

The following year on February 20, 1995, during his second trip to Moscow, LaRouche was invited to speak at the lower house of the Russian Parliament, the State Duma, which held special hearings to discuss emergency measures to prevent the disintegration of Russia’s economy. A memorandum submitted by LaRouche, titled “Prospects for Russian Economic Revival” was presented to the hearing, in addition to oral presentations made by representatives of the Schiller Institute in Moscow.34 LaRouche also delivered addresses at the Methodological University of Russia, the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and at Moscow State University [PDF] speaking at a seminar on physical economics sponsored by Moscow State University.

That year, LaRouche’s Executive Intelligence Review published a report called “Toward a Scientific Grounding for Economic Reforms in Russia“, written by Academician and Glazyev’s senior colleague, the late Russian economist Dmitry Lvov and the vice-director of the Central Economic-Mathematical Institute (CEMI) in Russia. Lvov’s paper is prefaced by a short introduction by LaRouche, titled “The New Role for Russia in U.S. Policy Today“.

Ukrainian academic and writer Anton Shekhovtsov wrote:

Glazyev’s senior colleague, late Russian economist Dmitry Lvov who was in contact with LaRouche too, was a full member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and might be one of the people who officially invited LaRouche to Moscow. Late Taras Muranivsky, professor at the Russian State University for the Humanities and president of the Russian branch of the Schiller Institute, might also be involved in organising LaRouche’s visit to Moscow.353637

In April 1996, LaRouche makes his third trip to Russia to conduct meetings with top-level academics and policy-makers from the Russian intelligentsia. Enjoying his new Russian nationalist, anti-Western, anti-liberal, and anti-semitic connections, LaRouche published a dossier against Jewish financier George Soros.

November 01, 1996, LaRouche and his cult published their first anti-Soros dossier: The secret financial network behind ‘wizard’ George Soros by William Engdahl:

The dossier that follows is based upon a report released on Oct. 1 by EIR’s bureau ‘in Wiesbaden, Germany, titled “A Profile of Mega-Speculator George Soros.” Research was contributed by Mark Burdman, Elisabeth Hellenbroich, Paolo Raimondi, and Scott Thompson.

The heart of this Club of the Isles is the financial center of the old British Empire, the City of London. Soros is one of what in medieval days were called Hofjuden, the “Court Jews,” who were deployed by the aristocratic families.

The most important of such “Jews who are not Jews38,” are the Rothschilds, who launched Soros’s career. They are members of the Club of the Isles and retainers of the British royal family. This has been true since Amschel Rothschild sold the British Hessian troops to fight against George Washington during the American Revolution.

Soros is American only in his passport. He is a global financial operator, who happens to be in New York, simply because “that’s where the money is…” …

The speculator was the Hungarian-born George Soros, who spent the war in Hungary under false papers working for the pro-Nazi government, identifying and expropriating the property of wealthy fellow Jews. Soros left Hungary after the war, and established American citizenship after some years in London. Today, Soros is based in New York, but that tells little, if anything, of who and what he is.39

The “Soros-was-a-Nazi” story was concocted by larouchie William Engdahl:

Soros admitted in a radio interview that his father gave him Nazi credentials in Hungary during the war, and he looted wealthy Jewish estates. Further research showed that this operation was probably run by the SS.

Bill Engdahl wrote of the alleged secret power of Jewish financiers such as George Soros and the Rothschilds. Author Michael Wohlraich identifies Engdahl as the first US popularizer of Soros conspiracy theories: in 1996, Engdahl wrote in the LaRouche’s Executive Intelligence Review that “The most prominent of these ‘Jews who are not Jews’ are the Rothschilds, who launched the career of Soros … Soros is American only in his passport, “which has been described by the anti-fascist group Unicorn Riot as” an example of the rootless cosmopolitan anti-Semitic trope. Engdhahl’s conspiracy theories about Soros’ role in fomenting “color revolutions” globally were taken by Max Blumenthal.

The following year in 1997, LaRouche and his cult published a dossier that will inspire most of the anti-Soros conspiracy theories and campaigns: “The true story of Soros the Golem” in LaRouche’s EIR (Executive Intelligence Review) as a SPECIAL REPORT in April 1997 prepared under the direction of Anno Hellenbroich in collaboration with Nancy Spannaus and Jeffrey Steinberg.

In May that year, the Associate Editor of LaRouche’s EIR warned that LaRouche wanted Soros to be renowned as an evil villain:

“Clip George Soros’s wings”

It may seem surprising that a man as rich, evil, and powerful as George Soros, should be so little known to the public. This is because he is one of the top operatives of Britain’s “Invisible Empire” — the subject of a report in last week’s issue. In our current cover story, we develop more fully the case of the “invisible” Soros’s activities in support of the drug legalization lobby, and a few examples of his destruction of nation-states. Soros and his minions are deployed in a worldwide Order of Battle, fighting for control over currencies, raw materials, and — probably most lucrative of all — drugs.40

The Asian Financial Crisis that year of 1997 gave some a boost of publicity and “credentials” to LaRouche’s:

But Americans might not be aware that Soros-phobia is a global phenomenon. Soros has been a target of the Russian government and media since the mid-2000s, when he was accused of fomenting the “color revolutions” that ousted Russian-backed governments in Georgia and Ukraine. The Hungarian-born Soros’ foundation did fund civil society groups in a number of formerly Communist countries, including some that were involved in these revolutions, though again, that doesn’t mean that the sentiments driving these movements weren’t genuine. 41


In August 1999, Yeltsin appointed Putin prime minister of Russia — the fifth in less than two years. In Russia, the prime minister is the second-highest-ranking official and reports to the president. Putin is a Russian nationalist from KGB. And then Yeltsin resigned and named Putin the acting president on New Year’s Eve 1999. Putin then won the election in March.

At this point, the collaboration between LaRouche and Sergey Glazyev intensifies. Anton Shekhovtsov wrote on this:

In 1999, LaRouche published an English translation of Glazyev’s book “Genocide: Russia and the New World Order” in which the author exposed his theories about “the world oligarchy” using “depopulation techniques developed by the fascists” “to cleanse the economic space of Russia for international capital”. According to Glazyev, the US – under the guidance of “the world oligarchy” – is implementing “anti-Russian policies” aimed at preventing “the reunification of the Russian people”, provoking “further dismemberment of Russia” and frustrating “integration processes within the territory of the CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States]”.42

December 15, 1999, LaRouche’s EIR (Executive Intelligence Review) will publish the English edition of Genocide: Russia and the New World, by Russian economist Sergei Glazyev,43 and larouchie Rachel B. Douglas. This English language edition includes a Preface by Lyndon H. LaRouche.

Ukrainian academic and writer Anton Shekhovtsov, added in his excellent Russia and the Western Far Right: Tango Noir book:

The relations between LaRouche and Glazyev continued in the 2000s, the Putin era. In particular, LaRouche and Helga Zepp-LaRouche took part in the Duma hearing “On Measures to Ensure the Development of the Russian Economy under Conditions of a Destabilization of the World Financial System” held in June 2001 at the initiative of Glazyev who was then chairman of the Duma Committee on Economic Policy and Entrepreneurship.

Glazyev’s promotion of LaRouche and his ideas in Russia resulted in the latter’s growth in popularity as an opinion-maker and commentator on political and economic issues in Russia – a status that LaRouche could not enjoy in his home country where he has remained a fringe political figure.44

In LaRouche’s EIR (Executive Intelligence Review) of May 25, 2001, Sergey Glaziev gave an interview ‘How Can the World Get Out of This Crisis?‘ {Pp. 6-11). Glazyev is presented as a Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Chairman of the Committee on Economic Policy and Business of the Russian State Duma.

On June 29, 2001, Lyndon LaRouche speaks before an official hearing of the lower house of the Russian Parliament, the State Duma, during hearings sponsored by Sergey Glaziev, the chairman of the Duma Committee on Economic Policy. Glazyev introduced LaRouche, saying: “I want to open our parliamentary hearings and to give the floor to our guest, the well-known philosopher, historian, and economist Mr. Lyndon LaRouche.”45

Moreover and for a second time in 2001, LaRouche travels to Moscow for a four-day visit December 10-14 to participate in a scientific conference honoring the memory of Pobisk Kuznetsov, who died the previous year.46

In April 2004, LaRouche travels again to Moscow to keynote a conference sponsored by the Vernadsky State Geological Museum of the Russian Academy of Sciences and co-sponsored by the Schiller Institute. At the same time, Sergey Glaziev issues a call for a “new world financial architecture” during a press conference in Moscow announcing his campaign for President of Russia [PDF].

Sergey Glaziev and the Katehon Think-tank:

LaRouche’s ‘friend’, Sergey Glaziev was a minister in 1993, a member of the State Duma in 1993-2007, and ran for President of Russia in 2004. Glaziev is also an advisory board, member of Katehon.

The U.S. Department Of State wrote in a dossier on Russia’s Disinformation and Propaganda that:

Katehon is a Moscow-based quasi-think-tank that is a proliferator of virulent anti-Western disinformation and propaganda via its website, which is active in five languages. It is led by individuals with clear links to the Russian state and the Russian intelligence services. Within Russia’s broader disinformation and propaganda ecosystem, Katehon plays the role of providing supposedly independent, analytical material aimed largely at European audiences, with content allegedly dedicated to “the creation and defense of a secure, democratic and just international system”.47

The U.S. Department Of State adds in its report:

Disinformation and Conspiracy Theories Promoted on Katehon’s Website48


Other disinformation that Katehon has promoted includes:

• Pope Francis is a servant of George Soros and the global Zionist conspiracy;

• George Soros’ tentacles entangle politics and generate chaos around the world;

• the Luciferian Zionist Rothchild crime family controls the Western mainstream media

• the Holocaust was instigated by the evil Rothschilds for creating their own nation state;

• Rasputin was killed by the Anglo-Zionist empire; and the fire at the Notre Dame was a satanic ritual.

LaRouche’s “friend” Glaziev also dwells in conspiracy theories. The U.S. Department Of State notes in this report:

“Former Putin’s aide: Coronavirus is the US biological weapon” quotes Sergey Glazyev, a member of Katehon’s supervisory board member, an associate of Dugin, and a former advisor to President Putin, as claiming that the COVID-19 virus is a U.S. biological weapon targeting “mostly people of the yellow race” and blaming Great Britain for provoking Hitler at the outbreak of World War II. 215 49

In April 2007, LaRouche is invited to participate in a conference n Moscow, Russia called “Megaprojects of Russia’s East: A Transcontinental Eurasia-America Transport Link via the Bering Strait” organized by the Russian Academy of Sciences Council for the Study of Productive Forces (SOPS), in conjunction with the Russian Ministry of Economic Development and Trade (MERT), the Russian Ministry of Transport, the state-owned company Russian Railroads, and several regional governments in Siberia and the Russian Far East. Lyndon LaRouche’s speech, prepared and submitted to the conference, is titled “The World’s Political Map Changes: Mendelyev Would Have Agreed” [PDF] In May 2007: LaRouche meets with Russian “Anti-Globalist Resistance” leaders.50

Then on June 10, Russian President Vladimir Putin calls for a ‘new international architecture of economic relations’ at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.


In 2008, Dmitry Medvedev was elected president. A day later, he made Putin the new prime minister. And then came the global financial crisis. The Russian economy was slammed particularly hard because it relied heavily on Western investment. The crisis showed how dependent the Russian economy is on oil and gas and how intertwined the industry was with the country’s political economy, according to the Brookings Institution.51

That year, using the anti-financier anger, LaRouche increased his anti-Soros campaign.

Your Enemy, George Soros – Executive Intelligence Review 4 Jul 2008 — Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. June 16, 2008.

In 2012, Putin won his third presidential election. Sergey Glaziev endorsed Putin in the presidential election and was officially appointed in July, presidential aide for the coordination of the work of federal agencies in developing the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia and advisor to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

Anton Shekhovtsov also wrote that Sergei Glazyev is indeed “a prominent megaphone for the Putinist justification of the annexation of Crimea. Like LaRouche, Glazyev believes in a global Jewish conspiracy to undermine Russian imperialism, if not exterminate ethnic Russians. Historian Timothy Synder has also pointed out that the state of Ukraine, according to this deranged theory, is not only an artificial Jewish construction to block Eurasia but its current government is “a Nazi junta installed by the United States,” a paradoxical conspiratorial malady Snyder has named “schizofascism.”52

Melik Kaylan wrote in Forbes:

It was in Russia that the orchestrated anti-Soros campaign first surfaced, where his foundations first suffered expulsion. […] If you look closely at how Kremlin disinformation works, you’ll notice a recurring theme. Attack your enemy’s strong points. Invert them, use them against him through nebulous smear-campaigns. And, sadly, their methods have bled over into American discourse via the extreme right. Hence the Jewish Soros is a hidden Nazi. 53

Note: the “Soros the Jew is a Nazi” smear was originally concocted by Glazyev’s buddy, Lyndon LaRouche, and his adept Bill Engdahl, who has been described by James Kirchick in Time magazine as being a “crank ‘historian'”:

The segment featured [from RT, not available anymore, note] an interview with crank “historian” William Engdahl, a regular columnist for the virulently anti-Semitic website Veterans Today, where he has suggested that terrorist bombings in Russia earlier this year were conducted by Israel in retribution “for Putin’s role in winning Obama away from war against Syria last fall and openly seeking a diplomatic resolution of the Iran nuclear problem.”54

In 2015, Putin bans Soros’ activities in Russia.55

In 2016, the original author of LaRouche’s anti-Soros dossiers Bill Engdahl participated in a panel on “The Russian Economic Growth Agenda“, a conference where Sergei Glazyev was one of the speakers. More about Bill Engdahl’s expertise and his Russian connections here 56.

Note: Engdahl’s present or even old websites never mention his relation and contribution to LaRouche’s activities and therefore never mention his anti-Soros “New Protocols of Zion” dossiers that contributed to a rise of antisemitism worldwide. The historic Protocols fake remains the most notorious and widely distributed antisemitic publication of modern times. The document was forged by the Russian secret police and first published in Russia in 1903.

Next year in 2017, the LaRouche’s anti-Soros campaign strikes back with their usual “Soros-is-a-nazi” smear; accusing Obama and Soros of putting Nazis in power in Ukraine!57 That same year, a petition to U.S. President Donald Trump was launched demanding to remove George Soros’s citizenship and ban him from entering the country:

Russian media itself never tires of the Soros theme. On February 17 state-controlled RIA Novosti published an article titled “How George Soros is trying to change the world” by Igor Pshenichnikov, described as an advisor to the director of the Russian Institute for Strategic Research. It starts out: “Almost 15,000 Americans have already signed a petition to U.S. President Donald Trump demanding to remove George Soros’s citizenship and ban him from entering the country.” [emph.. added]58

Next year in 2018, in Helsinki, Putin brought up the far right’s biggest boogeyman name: George Soros:

In response to a question about election interference, Putin brushed off allegations that the Russian government was involved. He compared the company that allegedly gave cover to the Russian intelligence agents to Soros — essentially arguing that an individual company doesn’t represent Russia, just like how Soros doesn’t represent America.59


Like LaRouche was, Glazyev is also a great supporter of both Putin and Trump. Glazyev told Russian news wire RNS that Donald Trump’s victory averted World War Three, top Putin aide claims“. Americans had two choices he said: World War Three or multilateral peace.

Russian presidential adviser Sergei Glazyev has announced a reset in relations between the United States and Russia after Republican Donald Trump won the election. On Wednesday, November 9, RNS reports.

“A reset in relations with Russia is inevitable,” Glazyev said. Trump’s victory, in his opinion, will have a positive effect on relations with Russia.

“The Americans objectively have two choices: either a world war or consent to a multipolar world. Clinton was a symbol of world war, Trump has the opportunity to change this situation, ” he stressed.

LaRouche was also a fervent supporter of both President of Russia Vladimir Putin60 and US president Donald Trump. See LaRouche And Trump: A Love–Hate Relationship.

But from a Russian/Putin perspective, LaRouche (who officially died in February 2019), was just a ‘useful idiot’. In October that year, Putin dismissed Glazyev.61 62 Since that year, LaRouche’s activities in Russia seem dead as their Russian language website shows.

LaRouche was released from prison in 1994. Before that year, he had hostile views against communist Russia and China. Then came a strange “change of line” about China that year: the pro-democracy students at Tiananmen Square in 1989 were let down by LaRouche, while Chinese Prime Minister Li Peng was hailed as a positive defender of the industrial development of China against… Great-Britain!

His widow Helga Zepp-LaRouche had traveled to China promoting their “ideas” since 1996 and is now running a Pro-China Party in Germany.63 More at LaRouche on China page.

What happened to the “Steele dossier” (where larouchies were reported to be officially invited in Russia by the Kremlin in 2016) and which led to “Mueller investigation” started in May 2017?

Starting that year, President Donald Trump and his allies, alleged the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, that led to the Mueller investigation, of possible contacts between Trump’s associates and Russian officials was a “hoax” or a “witch hunt” that was initiated by Trump’s political enemies.

In April 2019, Attorney General William Barr announced that he had launched a review of the origins of the FBI’s investigation and in May he had assigned DOJ special counsel John Durham to lead it. This led to discrediting the Trump-Russia Steele dossier and its analyst Igor Danchenko who was accused of lying to the FBI..64

BuzzFeed News, which made waves in 2017 by publishing the entire dossier, says it has no plans to take the document down. It’s still online, accompanied by a note that says “The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) defended past comments he made touting the infamous Steele dossier: Steele Dossier conclusion of Russia assisting Trump ‘turned out to be all too true’.

In conclusion, LaRouche’s “Russian Romance” was his last failure (and political fantasy). He tried to create some back-channel between Putin (“Russian Romance” vIa Sergey Glazyev) and Trump (“American Romance” vIa Roger Stone), but LaRouche was never even mentioned or considered in the Mueller Report. This was LaRouche’s last fantasy.

LaRouche only succeeded at making George Soros a hate figure shared in both camps. See: Anti-Soros Conspiracy Theories & The LaRouche Cult Factor by former larouchie and anti-LaRouche activist, Yves Messer (Published 2023).
