Russia in Ukraine has the right to build a new life because the enemy leaves a “scorched earth” there, Sergey Kurginyan, a philosopher, political scientist, and leader of the Essence of Time movement, said on June 9 on the program Conversation with a Sage on Radio Zvezda.
Kurginyan noted that if the enemy, withdrawing the territories, leaves some sort of life there, one must take this into account. “You’re not going to eradicate it, organize genocide and all that,” he explained.
But a very different situation arises when the enemy arranges genocide and leaves behind “scorched earth” in the hope that it will not be rebuilt. Then, as Kurginyan noted, there is a right to build a new life there, the one that Russia wants.
“But if you restore it [the ‘scorched earth’ – Rossa Primavera News Agency’s note], then you should restore it the way you want. You have the right to social construction, the right to a new modeling of life. Your opponent gave you this right,” says Kurginyan.
Kurginyan gave the example of the Kakhovka dam, which was destroyed by the Ukrainian side, deciding to leave Russia a desert or a flooded swamp. In other words, Kiev is indeed leaving a “scorched earth” behind. Therefore, the principle that Russia has the right to build a new life there should apply.
“If they rolled back from certain territories, we would enter them and have to reckon with what is there. And if they don’t roll back and these territories become a lunar landscape, a scorched earth, then we will build what we want there,” Kurginyan concluded.
