Europe was ready to take Russia in, but only by parts, said political scientist, philosopher and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan in an interview to Vyacheslav Manucharov published on March 13 on the YouTube channel of the Manuchi’s Empathy program.
Kurginyan, answering host’s question about whether Europe was ready to take Russia in after the collapse of the Soviet Union, said, “By parts, it always was.”
He indicated that, as far as he knows, the latest offer of that kind was made to President of Russia Vladimir Putin in 2007 or 2008. The political scientist also explained how this was supposed to happen.
“A simple partitioning would have taken place: first a confederation, then 12-18 parts, all those Idel-Ural Republic… This is a known scheme. They said, ‘You pretend, and we will take you in,’” Kurginyan explained.
He stressed that the Russian president refused to admit such a partitioning of Russia. Also, certain part of the security services elite also believed that the issue of Russia’s integrity was a red line.
“Putin said no. In fact, his Munich speech was, as I see it, part of that ‘no,’” Kurginyan explained.
