Kurginyan explains when the military operation in Ukraine may end

18.03.2022, Moscow.

Russia’s military special operation for the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine may end by August or September in the event that the current global processes along with “diplomatic efforts” do not affect this schedule, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on March 15 in an interview to the ONT Belarusian channel.

“Dealing with Mariupol will take most of March; then in April, say, Nikolaev’s turn will come. By May, hopefully, Odessa will be on the agenda,” Kurginyan said stressing that clearing up the Odessa Nazis will be the culmination. “In parallel, the processes on the north will move calmly, and some time by August or September we will be able to consider the operation completed.”

Kurginyan stressed that “there are complicating factors” including troubled processes taking place globally today, which “will have an effect.”

The political scientist also noted that the Russian military servicemen in their operation on the Ukrainian territory largely rely on their Syrian military experience.

“What did the US mean? ‘Well, the Russians have air superiority, they will bomb all the cities to the ground, and the whole thing will end. And then we will cry for hundred years what war criminals they are.’ War criminals, as we can see, appeared on the other side, the ones who used the Tochka-U against Donetsk,” Kurginyan said.

The political scientist stressed that the Ukrainian army group’s strike with a Tochka-U on the center of Donetsk has made unlikely any diplomatic agreements between Russia and Kiev to be achieved through “attempts to mend or fix something etc.”

Very complex, according to the political scientist, is the question what to do with Western Ukraine and “what is taking place there, as it is absolutely alien, and it should better be left alone. On the other hand, if it escalates militarization and initiates a hundred years’ war in the rest of Ukraine, then many questions arise.”

The political scientist warned against spreading any alarmist conclusions regarding the pace of the Russian military’s offensive across the Ukrainian territory.

“When people are enchained by a stupid idea that all the cities will be destroyed and the heel will step on the whole territory, of course they cannot predict anything, because it seems to them that ‘Oh my God, how long it is’ ― why long? This is a huge European country with a tremendous army, with 600 thousand militants with experience of the ‘anti-terrorist operation,’ having undergone strong brainwashing ― indeed, how many casualties it would take for Russia to organize such a force-majeure?” the political scientist added.

In order to better understand Russia’s actions in Ukraine, the political scientist recommended that a closer look should be taken at the military experience that the Russian military servicemen obtained during the military special operation in Syria.

On February 24, the Russian Armed Forces began a special operation for the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine in response to a planned Ukrainian army’s attack against the republics of Donbass.
