Kurginyan: The USSR never lost in a real bipolar world

16.05.2023, Aleksandrovskoye.

The bipolar world that formed after the Great Patriotic War was stable, and the USSR did not lose anywhere in that bipolar world, 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.

In World War Two, it was the Soviet Union that defeated Hitler. Everyone thankfully bent before the Soviet Union. Churchill and Roosevelt wrote absolutely humiliated letters. In the Ardennes, Hitler pressed them a little, and they fled, those boasted allies, begging for an offensive at the Eastern front to draw all the divisions there, Sergey Kurginyan explained.

He stressed that in that period it was clear to everyone that specifically “the USSR was the key actor,” so they could not avoid “giving it a share” in the new world order.

According to the political scientist, this share was given to the USSR in the most inconvenient way possible.

The Soviet Union did not want Poland. Russia and Poland will never be friends. The Soviet Union wanted Yugoslavia and Greece. It was not given this, the Balkans. Instead, it got Poland and the German Democratic Republic stuck into its teeth,” the analyst explained.

This is when the real bipolar world appeared.

That was a great victory. That was a division of the spheres of influence. That essentially meant what everyone was talking about, a bipolar world. And that bipolar world was stable, the philosopher explained.

Sergey Kurginyan explained that the Soviet Union withdrew its army from Afghanistan itself. Besides, the USSR lived much better with Afghanistan than the USA, “and it was all quieter, and it was evolving in a good direction.”

We won in Vietnam. In Korea it was fifty-fifty, but we won overall. We won in Cuba. Cuba still remains socialist. Where did we ever lose in that bipolar world? Nowhere,” the political scientist concluded.

He explained that the key defeat took place later, when our country believed “that Uncle Sam was good, kind, and that he wanted to be friends with us.”
