It becomes impossible to realize joint Russian-Turkish projects due to the British influence on Turkey, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on October 14 on the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program on the Russia One channel.
The political scientist said that a feeling of calmness and cloudlessness about the future of joint energy projects with Turkey is false. The state of cooperation with the Turkish authorities is very complex. Now there is almost no grounds to believe that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is a good partner of Russia.
“In my opinion, that is the catch. What does Erdoğan want? Why is he being so assertive? All this stuff about the army of Turan…it seems to me that neither Uzbekistan nor other participants of this great project will agree with it,” stressed Kurginyan.
According to the leader of the Essence of Time movement, behind the Turkish authorities’ foreign actions one may discern some strategic line and will to implement such a policy. Someone is coordinating Turkish actions with other international players.
“The chief of British Secret Intelligence Service Richard Moore more and more often attracts my attention. He is very active, independent, a turcologist…The more we see what is really happening there, all the chain of actions, the more anxious we become,” said Kurginyan.
The analyst pointed out that one should not absolutize this person and overstate him, but just take into consideration that Richard Moore had also met Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky during the latter’s visit to the UK.
In the assessment of the situation, the main question is to understand what this new Turkey has in store for us, said the political scientist. “Can we agree with Turkey on something or not? If we cannot agree on any issue, the situation is very bad,” concluded Kurginyan.
It is to be noted that the participants of the program discussed the global situation and Turkey’s role in the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
