The world has found itself in a situation of uneven development, similar to that which had developed on the eve of World War I, political scientist and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on September 16 on the air of the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program on the Russia One channel.
Kurginyan stressed that it was the uneven development and China’s leading position that were the main driving forces of maidan in Ukraine and Belarus.
According to the political scientist, the US began to push the Maidan scenario more actively in Ukraine because Yanukovich and Azarov agreed with China on a large loan of $40-50 billion. In his opinion, China’s readiness for major economic expansion in Ukraine intensified US preparations for a color revolution. “The Chinese were ready for an incredible investment in the Ukrainian economy. When it became clear that this also concerns the defense complex, this machine was accelerated,” Kurginyan said.
In his opinion, a similar situation is now observed in Belarus, where the US also perceives a Chinese threat. “Belarus has been very active in cooperation with the People’s Republic of China. And if Russia bears 50% of the US ‘grudge’ for Belarus being with Russia, then the other 50% is against China.” The political scientist noted that the Chinese component of Belarusian policy became much more critical for the US because the relationship between the US and China had sharply deteriorated.
In addition to Belarus, Africa has become a zone of constant clashes of interests between the USA and China, said Kurginyan. “This is actually a war zone, a permanent trade and economic conflict that is turning into a political one,” the expert stressed.
“Once again, we have found ourselves in a situation that Hilferding first described [Russian historian of the 19th century – Rossa Primavera News Agency note], and then Lenin confirmed – in a situation of uneven development. China is becoming the number one power. It is taking the lead. How does one stop such a power? Let’s see the lessons of World War I.”
According to the political scientist, before World War I, there was globalization similar to the contemporary one, but now this globalization is beginning to “fall apart.“
