Kurginyan: Russia needs to limit war to one theater

05.11.2022, Moscow.

Russia needs to maintain one theater of operations until victory in Ukraine and at the same time train a three million-man professional army, said philosopher, political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on October 30 during the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program on the Russia 1 channel.

Speaking about the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border and whether Russia now needs to be actively involved in the territorial disputes between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Kurginyan stressed that: “At this juncture, we have one specific regional theater of military operations. And there should be no others until we win here. Period.”

According to the political scientist, over time, Russia will have to deal with a second front when it’s imposed; while now, both the army and the military-industrial complex must actively prepare for such a situation. Kurginyan does not believe that “the US won’t be able to manipulate Turkey to act in accordance with its strategic interests.”

“Something else may happen that fuels the situation somewhere else and all this reality will collapse into the abyss if we fail to create a new one,” said the philosopher, explaining what would happen if Russia got involved in another military conflict.

Kurginyan is convinced that without a significant build-up of the country’s armed forces in total numbers; without their proper training and without providing them with everything necessary, Russia will not survive in a long confrontation with the West.

“Forgive me for a blasphemous statement but a contract army does not yet mean a professional army, as I see it. Yes, we need a professional, highly professional three-million-strong army for the new situation,” explained the political scientist, adding that it doesn’t matter how much it will cost to build such an army.

“There won’t be anything left if we don’t have it!” – summarized Kurginyan.

An appropriate military-industrial complex is necessary to provide for such a three-million-strong army, continued the philosopher. Kurginyan recalled that the Soviet Union, when relocating machines for the heavy industry beyond the Urals during the Great Patriotic War, did not build them from ground zero, initial production cycles had already been prepared there. And this does not in any way correspond to the allegations that the USSR was supposedly not ready for war.

Russia too, needs to prepare for a long confrontation with the West, changing the existing reality, and above all, building up its military potential.
