Kurginyan: Putin is outraged by Ukraine’s position on status of the Russian people

17.07.2021, Aleksandrovskoye.

In his article about the Russian and the Ukrainian people, Putin expresses his extreme indignation with Ukraine’s position on the status of the Russian people, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on July 15 on the air of the Tema program on the Union channel.

“Vladimir Putin’s article is very harsh. It is not just harsh, but it is very harsh. And we can see that the Ukrainian events make him feel deeply and profoundly unhappy,” Kurginyan believes.

The political scientist explained that Putin as a person is not free from strong passions, which he consistently hides under irony and restraint.

“Sure, this mask is quite convincing, and it reflects something, but serious passions are still boiling over behind it. This passion found an unprecedented way out after the statement that the Russians were allegedly not native to Ukraine,” he explained his position.

Kurginyan stressed that Putin perceives such a policy by the Ukrainian authorities towards the Russian population as a sort of madness. The Russian leader’s indignation can be clearly followed in the text of the article he wrote.

“Putin’s entire article conveys one clear idea, ‘This is too much!’ We tolerated even certain fascists raging [in Ukraine], we tolerated ‘lynch the Muscovites,’ but after you have said that the Russians are not native Ukraine, this is really too much, you must be crazy, you must be insane to say this!” Sergey Kurginyan explained.

Discussing president’s policy on the Ukrainian issue, the political scientist explained that political clans and elite groups in Russia have their own policies.

“Liberal clans would like to convert something into an improving our relations with the USA, while conservative clans would like to enhance something else. However, Putin’s policy on Ukraine is very tough. Very tough! And this toughness is in everything he says there,” Kurginyan concluded.

On July 12, the Kremlin Press Service published Putin’s article “On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians.” In this article the Russian leader discusses key historical milestones of the development of Russians and Ukrainians from the earliest times until today.
