Kurginyan explains what to do with Baltic States for Kaliningrad blockade

04.07.2022, Moscow.

Russia should withdraw its private assets from the Baltic States, and it should put pressure on them in the legal domain, said political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on June 29 in an interview to the ONT Belarusian channel.

The Russian authorities are trying by all means to decrease the economic and political burden on their country, which was caused by the West’s sanctions and the special operation, Kurginyan noted. The authorities seek to maintain the existing course of peaceful life, with full restaurants and a low dollar exchange rate.

“But when [the pressure on Russia] grows, this splendor will have to be changed to something else, more mobilized and harsh,” the political scientist stressed.

According to Kurginyan, the West will escalate its pressure on Russia, and then Moscow will have to increase its return action ― in a gradual, sophisticated, and moderate manner.

“Then the first issue will be for some part of the people, including some that I know, to stop considering the Baltic States as their ‘comfortable harbor.’ I do not mean migrants, they are not part of us anymore, but I mean gray money and any sorts of indirect transits,” the expert explained.

Kurginyan suggested that Russian entrepreneurs’ money should be withdrawn from the Baltic States in order to see what happens after the Russian economic potential is totally gone.

“I would be happy to watch that sort of a small-place splendor,” the analyst noted.

According to Kurginyan, as its next move Russia should establish a legal basis for the interaction with the Baltic States.“After these two things appear, we must press again and again through all the channels in order to make the West understand that we will not turn aside. We will accomplish everything we need in Kaliningrad region. And then we will see whether the other side is ready not to turn aside,” the political scientist concluded.
