At the Olympic Games, Russians are winning through their connection with the paramount, the spirit of their country, but not by the anticipation of rewards, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on February 26 in his argument with political scientist Aleksandr Sytin at the Time Will Tell TV show.
“Look at their faces, the ones singing the [Russian] anthem. Besides, this footage [Russian hockey players singing the Russian anthem after they won the final match of the 2018 Olympic Games] is now everywhere, including the CIA and elsewhere. Because for them [the Russian hockey players] it would have been safer to stand there with lifeless faces in order to get their NHL contracts. But they are singing, because they are happy. And they are happy because there was something they put above themselves, and they won. <…> What they put above themselves was their country, their people, and thus they are one with their country. But when you talk about rewards and money, and so on, you simply want to turn a real great achievement into vulgarity,” Sergey Kurginyan said.
In his speech, Sytin alleged that all the aspiration our team put into their singing of the Russian anthem was due to their anticipation of being paid for their victory. Sytin also added that his own “spirit” was he himself.
“Your spirit is your ego. Christians would say that you are in hell. This is how it is determined in the Christian religion,” Kurginyan commented.
At the 2018 Olympic Games in the Korean city of PyeongChang, the Russian team won the final hockey match with Germany 4-3 in overtime. Russia has not won the Olympic gold in hockey since 1992.
As the Olympic anthem was played at the medal ceremony, the Russian hockey players and their fans sang the Russian national anthem in violation of IOC’s ban.
