There is only one group in Ukrainian society on which Kiev can rely, the Bandera Nazis. This group is the locomotive of Ukrainian policy, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on February 19 on the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV show, a correspondent of the Rossa Primavera Information Agency reports.
Discussing recent attacks against the representative office of the Russian Federal Agency for CIS Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo) in Kiev, the leader of the Essence of Time movement made a conclusion that the Banderization of Ukraine “is well under way” and that Bandera “is more and more becoming an official figure.”
Kurginyan emphasized that, despite the fact that Banderization interferes with Ukraine’s “European orientation” and undermines Polish-Ukrainian relations, the Ukrainian authorities “keep with Bandera whatever happens”, because the only real group on which they can rely is a small group of Nazis, which has become the driver of the Ukrainian policy.
“Who needs this Nazism? Because the real group, except for the Ukrainian average population, which is quite inert, on which they can rely, is the group of Nazis; it is small, but it exists. It amounts to, say several hundred thousand in its core, and another million or a million and half around the core, but it is the driver of the Ukrainian policy. All the time we are told that these people are few: the locomotive is small, but the train is large. The point is not how large the locomotive is; the point is that it is pulling the train in determined direction, without any braking,” he stressed.
In response to Ukrainian experts’ comments that Bandera is unpopular among the population, the leader of the Essence of Time movement said that Bandera, indeed, has no mass popularity, but “this is irrelevant; Bandera rules in Ukraine, and these masses are pulled by this locomotive.”
“He is not popular, he is powerful. One must distinguish between popularity and real power. Power belongs to this minority,” Kurginyan said.
On February 18, activists from nationalist organizations attacked the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in Kiev. The day before, nationalists stripped the Russian flag from the building, and they burnt it. This is not the first incidence of a radical attack against the representative office. In August 2017, they attacked the building with smoke bombs.
