No concessions in negotiations must be made to the Ukrainian authorities, which behave as monsters towards their own population, said philosopher, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on The Great Game program on Channel One on March 16.
The political scientist pointed out the manner followed by Ukrainian armed groups and nationalist paramilitary groups in the cities encircled by the Russian army. The people living in these cities have been repeatedly offered a chance to leave through humanitarian corridors, and the Ukrainian side has always blocked it.
“Thus, for the first time in the history of humanity we encounter, and this should be considered at the talks, those who deny civilians an escape. They should be interested for their combat needs to minimize the civilian population. Therefore, they only count on human shields. Indeed, they are monsters. They are monsters!” Kurginyan stressed.
He suggested that it should be taken into account what these kinds of monsters would do after receiving any concessions from the Russian side at the talks.
According to Kurginyan, from the military point of view, such steps are senseless, and examples in military history are known when besieged sides tried to take advantage of such opportunities.
Also, Kurginyan pointed out the uncertainty of the options the Ukrainian side proposed at the talks. He reminded that one of the goals of the ongoing special operation is the denazification of the former Soviet republic. In view of the Austrian or Swedish version that Kiev has proposed, it is unclear who is supposed to carry out the denazification of Ukraine.
“The Nazis themselves?” Kurginyan stressed.
“Well, suppose we create this neutral Swedish-like Ukraine, but who will carry out its denazification? Yarosh? Or who?” the political scientist added, referring to the leader of Right Sector (organization banned in Russia) Dmitry Yarosh.
Furthermore, we must not forget, Kurginyan continued, that Ukraine in its current state cannot be considered independent, which also complicates the process of achieving any agreement with the official Kiev.
“So, with whom are we supposed to have an agreement? With the USA or with them? Who will give us a guarantee that nothing will happen here? Whose signatures are there?” the political scientist wondered.
Kurginyan indicated that in 2014 the Western countries, which gave certain guarantees to President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovich, failed to keep their promises, and Yanukovich was overthrown. Any concessions will provoke revanchist sentiments in Ukraine, and they will find appropriate support.
Previously, Assistant to President of Russia Vladimir Medinsky, the head of the Russian delegation at the talks with Ukraine, said that official Kiev proposed to Moscow an “Austrian” or “Swedish” version of a neutral demilitarized state, although with its own army. According to Medinsky, such issues “are discussed at the level of the Russian and Ukrainian defense ministries.”
