Kurginyan: Piłsudski’s “Prometheism” is a Polish project to destroy Russia

16.06.2022, Moscow.

Prometheism is Józef Piłsudski’s project within Jagiellonian concept for the Polish state aimed at destroying Russia, said analyst, political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on June 9 during the broadcast published on the movement’s YouTube channel.

Poland has an obligate “political goal of breaking Russia into separate major parts and providing independence to those countries that were forcibly included in the empire,” said the political scientist recalling Piłsudski’s words from a memorandum in 1904.

“Prometheism” was the prototype for the doctrine of captive nations, which was later used by the Nazis, and then further developed by the US, stressed Kurginyan.

In order to consolidate “Prometheism”, Piłsudski also came up with the plan for “Intermarium”, or the new Polish empire located between the Baltic, Adriatic and Black Seas, with Ukraine and other territories included.

“As Piłsudski envisioned it, the Baltic States, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Romania, and possibly Finland and Georgia were also included into the new unified formation,” said the leader of the Essence of Time.

Kurginyan recalled that in 1904 Piłsudski’s had made a trip to Japan where the Polish politician offered his assistance to the Japanese in the fight against the Russian Empire with his Prometheism.

Later, the project against Soviet Russia was carried out with the help of Petliura. “Then, they began to drag the emigre governments of Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Crimean Tatars, Don Cossacks, Idel-Ural and Turkestan into this organization, this Prometheism,” emphasized the political scientist.

In the meantime, despite the collapse of Polish ambitions, after running into the might of the Soviet Union, the concept itself survived, “and recently, quite recently, in the last 5 years or so, it was resurrected again.”

“There is nothing more recurring than Polish expansionism, this very Jagiellonian concept. People change, historical conditions change, Poland disappears and reappears, and every time it comes back, it repeats the same thing,” believes the leader of Essence of Time. “And what we saw in the embrace between Duda and Zelensky is only a part of this reincarnation of the Polish expansionist game.”

Poland’s claims to Russia have never been limited to Ukraine alone, they “always have been much more fundamental,” stressed Kurginyan.

On May 22, Polish President Andrzej Duda visited Ukraine. He spoke in the Verkhovna Rada, Ukrainian Parliament, embracing with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky later. In turn, Zelensky announced the introduction of a bill on a special legal status for Polish citizens in Ukraine. He also announced an agreement on a simplified procedure for crossing the border between Ukraine and Poland.
