Kurginyan: Traditional values have become a point of separation between Russia and the West

29.03.2023, Moscow.

In 2012, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he was against the collapse of traditional values, and now it becomes a marking point that separates Russia and the West, said the philosopher, political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan in an interview with Vyacheslav Manucharov, published on March 13 on Manuchi’s Empathy program on YouTube channel.

In 2012, Putin accidentally learned about the ways the system of forced foster care was being implemented in Russia, and how bureaucrats remove children from families, said Kurginyan. Even then, Putin said that he was against the destruction of traditional values.

Originally from St. Petersburg, Putin is very westernized, but in terms of forced foster care, gender, the LGBT agenda, as a head of state he turned out to be quite a Soviet man, noted Kurginyan. Putin began to disengage from the West on the issue of traditional values.

“Now, this is already a point of our separation from the West,” said Kurginyan.

According to him, Putin, as a westernizer, wanted to turn Russia into an ordinary European country that would become part of the West. The realization that this was impossible was excruciating for the Russian leader, said Kurginyan.

The year of 2012 was marked by the struggle of Russian society with draft legislation on forced foster care. Against the backdrop of public resistance to forced foster care, a public organization for the protection of the family All-Russian Parents’ Resistance organization was founded. The founding assembly of the All-Russian Parents’ Resistance organization was attended by the head of state, who promised the parents’ gathering that there would be no forced foster care in Russia.
