Funding The White Helmets
the organisation is funded through the UK Government’s £1bn Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF)
They are used as:
- A means of supporting and lending credibility to opposition structures within Syria.
- A supposedly impartial organisation that corroborates UK government accusations against the Russian and Syrian states.
There has been controversy regarding the CSSF, as details of some of the projects it funds are secret and even senior MPs are not told what they are.
The 2017 Annual Report provides revealing details:

The Jo Cox Memorial Fund
One million pounds raised in her honour in just three days. The scale and speed of the public response was overwhelming and showed how powerful her story was. Finance raised was to be used to support causes she believed in, including: The White Helmets: Volunteer search and rescue workers in Syria. Unarmed and neutral, these heroes have saved more than 51,000 lives from under the rubble and bring hope to the region.
Who are the White helmets?
The murder of a rising star in UK politics, Jo Cox, MP sent shock waves across the world. Within hours of her death, a special fund was established in her name to raise money. One cause supported was the Syrian White Helmets.
But credible allegations soon surfaced that the plea for financial support was a cynical exploitation of Jo Cox’s murder to revive the flagging credibility of a US State Department & UK Foreign Office asset on the ground in Syria.
The alleged “non-governmental” organisation received funding from at least three major NATO governments, including $23 million from the US Government and $29 million (£19.7 million) from the UK Government, $4.5 million (€4 million) from the Dutch Government. In addition, it received material assistance and training funded and run by a variety of other EU Nations.
The White Helmets were established as a crucial component of a US, UK and NATO shadow state operation inside Syria. The group was essential to the propaganda stream that prosecuted a merciless media and political campaign against the elected Syrian government and permitted the US and NATO to justify their regime of crippling economic and humanitarian sanctions against the Syrian people.
The ‘NGO’ blueprint was successful and might well be deployed in future destabilizing operations providing a direct intra-venus line into the field of battle and acts as a conduit for information, equipment and medical support.
The foregoing matches the projected future of warfare, described as “swarming” and is outlined in a report produced by the RAND Corporation entitled: Swarming and the Future of Conflict.
“The emergence of a military doctrine based on swarming pods and clusters requires that defense policymakers develop new approaches to connectivity and control and achieve a new balance between the two. Far more than traditional approaches to battle, swarming clearly depends upon robust information flows. Securing these flows, therefore, can be seen as a necessary condition for successful swarming.”
Relevant articles and interviews are provided below. There needs to be a serious public and political re-evauluation of the morality of funding US,UK and NATO groups established to further “regime change” objectives.

Eva Bartlett: Human Rights Front Groups Warring on Syria
This page will continue to expand as more so-called “Human Rights” groups are outed for propagating anti-Syria war rhetoric and false allegations against the Syrian government and Syrian Arab Army. As it is, the list of players is quite extensive. Below, I’ll list the known HR front people and groups (many, if not most, with links to the US State Department and criminals like George Soros).
Ron Paul Institute: Syria the Propaganda Ring
We have demonstrated that the White Helmets are an integral part of the propaganda vanguard that ensures obscurantism of fact and propagation of Human Rights fiction that elicits the well-intentioned and self righteous response from a very cleverly duped public. A priority for these NGOs is to keep pushing the No Fly Zone scenario which has already been seen to have disastrous implications for innocent civilians in Libya, for example.
We will add to the above articles and interviews as they become available. Vanessa Beeley has just completed a speaking tour of the UK and Iran during which she highlighted the role of the NGO complex in general and the White Helmets in particular as a new breed of predatory humanitarianism being unleashed against target nations. Videos of her talks will be published as soon as they become available from the AV7 conference and Frome Stop War.
