George Soros, financier and philanthropist, provided details of his Russian philanthropic interests in the increasingly chaotic situation under Yeltsin. He established the International Science Foundation, which distributed $500 each to the top thirty thousand Russian scientists. Western companies have little appetite for investing in Russia and the cash they received is practically the only Western aid that Russians have received. He wanted the foundation to lead the way toward an open society in Russia but it became embroiled in the transition.
