Kurginyan: The world would have been under Hitler without Soviet people’s heroism

16.05.2023, Aleksandrovskoye.

If the Soviet people had not demonstrated heroism en masse but behaved similarly to the people of the European countries who surrendered to the Nazism, there would have been no Russia, and the entire world would have been under Hitler, philosopher and political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on May 9 in his congratulatory address.

Kurginyan quoted the poem The Story of an Unknown Hero by Samuil Marshak in which a young man saves a child from a burning house. The political scientist noted that the poem was inspired by a true story. A young student of a workers’ school, former soldier of the Red Army, candidate to the Communist Party Vasily Burlatsky really committed a similar heroic deed.

The leader of Essence of Time stressed that in the years before the war the Soviet people were prepared for work and defense, and, as Marshak’s poem rightfully says, there were many people ready for heroic deeds.

If the mass heroism of millions of people like Burlatsky had not swept the Nazi scum, but something else had happened instead as it happened in Czechoslovakia that quickly surrendered to the Nazis, and which now produces weapons for the Nazi Ukraine, or in Poland that surrendered quickly, too, or in France that brought a terrible shame on itself… then the world would have been under Hitler, and there would have been no Russia, and not only Russia, Kurginyan said.
