Kurginyan: Ukraine is the trigger for events on which Russia's fate depends

15.03.2022, Moscow.

Ukraine has become the trigger for the Great Game on a global scale, on which Russia’s fate depends. This was stated by Sergey Kurginyan, a philosopher, political scientist, and leader of the Essence of Time movement, on the air of The Great Game program on Channel One on March 12.

The current situation consists of a whole series of important issues and problems. According to Kurginyan, the US reminds us of Rome in its times of decline. They are, first of all, greatly enraged by Russia’s behavior.

From their point of view, since we lost the Cold War, we are a dependent territory, we were split up in Belovezhye. And now we’re trying to rebuild something. And they believe that they have it all in their claws, and this anger is just overwhelming, beyond all rationality,” said the political scientist.

Second, the US is destroying another its competitor, Europe, with the help of migrant flows.

Look what they are doing to Europe. They’re just cracking down on it,” Kurginyan said. In his view, anti-Russian sanctions, among other things, will cause starvation in Africa and thus new waves of migration to Europe. As a result, politically, Europe is moving to the extreme right.

Where are liberals pushing the political elite? You probably all know that in Spain a coalition of the right-wing with the far right has begun. They abandoned the center and went right. <…> What do we get as a result out of this Europe?“- said the political scientist, noting that similar processes will take place in other European countries.

Third, there is a question about the future of the dollar system. There is a sharp rise in the cost of bitcoin, gold, yuan. According to Sergey Kurginyan, we may be on the brink of changing the global financial system. That is Bretton Woods III is coming, by analogy with the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944, which established a new international system of monetary relations organization and trade payments. It replaced the financial system based on the gold standard.

Fourth, there is the problem of one China and separatism in Taiwan, which is openly supported by the United States. According to the political scientist, the head of China has been calm and well-balanced so far. But Xi Jinping wants to stay in the country’s history as a great figure and may go for a solution of the Taiwan issue.

Taiwan is on the agenda,” Kurginyan stressed.

At the same time, the US House of Representatives this week approved an amendment banning the US State Department from purchasing any maps that depict Taiwan as part of China. Kurginyan believes that China will not tolerate this infinitely.

At the same time, the political situation inside the United States itself remains tense and is not in favor of the current administration.

They have midterm elections in November. In these midterm elections, if they do nothing, and they have what they have, the Republicans will come to power,” explained the political scientist, noting the low ratings of the current US President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party.

At the same time, the entire career of the incumbent White House’s foreign policy has been tied to the expansion of NATO. And for Russia, the deployment of strike facilities on the territory of Ukraine is a threat incompatible with the life of the country.

We say that NATO expansion is our existential threat, and he says, `Go ahead, go ahead,‘” Sergey Kurginyan noted.

This whole set of issues suggests that a really Great Game has been launched. It is a big game in which Ukraine turned out to be the trigger. It is incredibly important in itself. This is a question of Russian destiny,” Kurginyan stressed.

On February 17, the situation in Donbass was sharply aggravated by Ukraine. It intensified shelling, sabotage groups tried to penetrate the territory of the republics, and so on. Already on February 18, the heads of the DPR and LPR announced the evacuation of the population to Russia.

On February 24, Russia began a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine. This decision was made due to the threat of “sweeping out” the civilian population of Donbass, as well as due to Ukraine’s plans to abandon its neutral status and to deploy nuclear weapons on its territory, by Kiev’s own advanced nuclear developments.

The Russian army’s main battles are with nationalist units, which, using the tactics of Middle Eastern Islamists, use civilians as human shields and fire from densely populated residential areas.
