The Hungarian-Polish démarche is one of the components of the political struggle for victory in the US presidential race, political scientist, leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on November 22 on the air of the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov program on the Russia One TV channel.
According to Kurginyan, the liberal protests being held in Poland and Hungary are directed against the position of these two countries’ authorities, who are committed to traditional values.
“These are strange démarches, because, in principle, Hungary and Poland advocate traditional values, – they say that all this migrant policy, all this LGBT policy, and so on does not suit them,” he said.
The matter of the attitude toward traditional values starts to split Europe, as other countries have a liberal agenda, the political scientist believes. “In response to this, Old Europe begins to say, ‘It suits us! And either you obey us or we will impose sanctions’,” Kurginyan stressed.
The expert noted that the Polish position cannot be out of tune with the USA. “I could hardly imagine that Poland may somehow drift away from the USA and start acting on its own account. So, in fact, there is an US approval of the Poles to start very much problematizing their relations with Old Europe,” he explained.
The future will show how far it can go, but it is a rather serious process, the political scientist believes. In his opinion, Europe is beginning to split into two camps. “Inside this European community, there will be no unity among the comrades, and these comrades will be splitting into the pro-American camp and, essentially, Old Europe.”
“This is the next process, which also promises nothing good, because being a split into Eastern and Western Europes, it is at the same time a split within these two Europes,” Kurginyan concluded.
In Poland, the initiatives of Jarosław Kaczyński’s ruling party Law and Justice caused mass protests in the country. On September 17, the Polish Sejm adopted controversial amendments to the law on protection of animals, which restrict animal breeding for fur and ritual slaughter. On October 22, the Polish constitutional court declared the norm of allowing abortion if there is a possibility of the fetus’s death at birth or serious illness of fetus to be unconstitutional.
These laws caused numerous street protests. Jarosław Kaczyński was accused of splitting society in a crisis caused by the coronavirus epidemic.
In Hungary, student protests against Prime Minister Viktor Orbán have been held since September 1, 2020. Students are demanding the government not to interfere in education. One of the requirements is also to grant universities autonomy.
