Kurginyan: Establishing a cold standoff with the West is salvation for Russia

18.04.2017, Russia.

Sergey Kurginyan, the leader of the “Essence of Time” movement, explained the reasons behind the mobilizational nature of the Third Congress of the All-Russian Parents’ Resistance (Russian: RVS) organization to the assembly of delegates in his opening speech, as Rossa Primavera News Agency reports.

According to Kurginyan, the country and the world are in a pre-catastrophic situation due to number of factors like “ an exacerbation of American sabre-rattling” which pushes the world to the brink of nuclear war; threat of intensifying economic sanctions against Russia; “a rapid and non-coincidental” increase in the activity of Russian Maidan protest forces coupled with a likely increase in their funding by the US and other countries; a new wave of hostile actions on the periphery of the country; the unprecedented demonization of Russia in the Western media, and the involvement of new allies, such as Erdogan, in anti-Russian actions.

According to Kurginyan, a particularly dangerous aspect of the situation is that the so called “there-ocracy” (the pro-Western part of the Russian bureaucracy – Editor), “whose vital interests are not ‘here’ [in Russia – Editor], but ‘there’, in the West”, will continue to play by its own rules. At this point Sergey Kurginyan referred to the peculiarities of implementation of policies creating a forced foster care system in Russia. Addressing the delegates of the First Congress of the “All-Russian Parents’ Resistance” in February of 2013, President Vladimir Putin assured the assembly that there will be none of this in Russia; but by the end 2016, elements of a forced foster care system were implemented in practice, and it took the direct involvement of the President to put it to halt. Thus, the pro-Western part of the Russian bureaucracy had been implementing a forced foster care system for two years in direct violation of the President’s order. With this situation at hand, how will the pro-Western bureaucracy act, when pressure on Russia from the West increases to an unprecedented scale? “Will it become a force opposed to the state, turning into a ‘Trojan Horse’?” asked Sergey Kurginyan.

Three scenarios for the future are possible according to the “Essence of Time” leader, and two of them are completely unacceptable: a “hot” war between Russia and the US, two nuclear powers, or Russia’s capitulation. The third scenario is to “rapidly and correctly” establish a new type of relationship, when Russia declares firmly that it is not a part of the Western world with its “forced foster care systems and dehumanizing gender quirks”. Such a declaration will give rise to an acute ideological confrontation, which could be called “Cold War 2.0”, but a “cold” war is meant to prevent a “hot” one. Russia’s return to itself will attract many actors on the international arena to its side, including those parts of the West that are dissatisfied with what the West has become in past few decades. According to Sergey Kurginyan, it must be understood that, on the verge of the catastrophe, this standoff between worlds based on different values, which is what a “Cold War” really is a chance for salvation.

In his concluding remarks, the leader of the “Essence of Time” movement called upon the congress to become the starting point of a “counter-reset” in relations between Russia and the West, or “Cold War 2.0”. To be a point of separation for those willing to unite around such a strategic platform, and those aspiring to become part of the Western world, which is both unnecessary and unrealistic.

The Third Congress of the All-Russian Parent Resistance (RVS) organization took place on April 15th, 2017. 1,300 participants attended the forum, among them RVS delegates from 64 Russian regions. Among the guests of the congress were Russian government officials, senators, representatives of social and religious organizations, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, experts, and journalists from federal and regional media outlets.
