Kurginyan: Poroshenko is war and peace at the same time

31.01.2019, Moscow.

The President of Ukraine Pyotr Poroshenko uses one set of electoral rhetoric for the United States and quite another for the Ukrainian people, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on January 30 on the air of the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program at the Russia One channel.

Sergey Kurginyan spoke about the Ukrainian president’s election tactics. He noted that the Ukrainian political elite, marked as “a collective Poroshenko,” has taken it upon itself to create an anti-Russian Ukraine.

“With all my great respect to the Ukrainian people and their peacefulness, I must say that an attempt is being made to turn them into a predator with bared teeth, saying ‘I will bite Russians to death, I will devour them’. Poroshenko is exactly saying ‘such a Ukraine will appear.’ This sort of a Ukraine cannot be made without destroying it from inside, without breaking all the existing bonds, without suppressing certain part of its population.”

 “This is why Bandera is needed. Indeed, why could they possibly need him? If they want to join Europe, then he is an irritating figure. But no! Bandera, Bandera, and Bandera, because he is another symbol of the same thing, the predator, whose only goal is to bite Russia.”

 “This is symptomatic of two things. First, it is increasingly difficult to build it. And second, such an order does exist, and they want to build such a predator,” Kurginyan added.

The leader of the Essence of Time movement stressed that this kind of rhetoric, addressed to the United States, is unpopular with the majority of the Ukrainian people.

“The Ukrainian population, given all the regress and, so to say, negative processes, still has not gone mad enough to be receptive to this.”

Kurginyan noted that this is why quite a different agenda is used towards the Ukrainian people.

 “This is why I [Poroshenko] am war and peace at the same time. Simultaneously, I am subserviently talking to America seeking its acceptance, and I have to say something to my people, and these are different messages. This results in a split personality: I have to speak one language to the Americans and another to my own people. I need a way to bring it all together. Finally, the distracted mind of a political technologist, under the influence of moonshine, says, ‘what if we fight Putin? this will be most interesting thing!’ One could not imagine anything more idiotic than this, but this idiocy is the reality of the Ukrainian political life today.”

On January 30, the Deputy Speaker of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) Irina Gerashchenko said that there would be two presidential candidates at the coming elections: Poroshenko and “a symbolic Putin.” Gerashchenko justified her position with the Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement that a change of power should take place in Ukraine.

The Spokeswoman of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova reacted with a joke, asking “Does Putin know that he can be elected in Ukraine instead of Poroshenko?”
