Russia in its foreign trade and foreign policy is a better player than Gorbachev’s USSR was, philosopher and political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on May 12 on the program Conversation with a Sage on the Zvezda radio station.
Commenting an address by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the UN Security Council, Kurginyan reminded that under Gorbachev, the USSR together with the Warsaw Pact countries was in international isolation.
“The oil prices dropped, the foreign economic trade stopped, and there was a feeling that the whole world outside ourselves, i.e. outside the Council for Mutual Economic Aid and the Warsaw Pact, was totally against us or it was looking towards the USA,” the political scientist said.
Kurginyan reminded the disagreement with China, which was instigated not only by Kissinger and Nixon “but also by our guys starting from Khrushchev.” However, in his opinion, the USSR as compared to Russia today had more “trumps” because it had larger territory and it had the Warsaw Pact countries as allies, but still its position was worse.
“This suggests that those who are now playing in economy and foreign policy are better players and that they better use the current environment,” Sergey Kurginyan concluded.
