Kurginyan explains why Western weapons lose their effectiveness in Ukraine

07.07.2023, Moscow.

Western military equipment taken out of a certain context of Western concepts and doctrines in Ukraine loses some of its capabilities, philosopher, political scientist, and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on June 20 in the latest issue of his author’s program Destiny.

“Everything that the West is now trying to supply to Ukraine is the result of Western philosophies, doctrines, concepts, models, projects, developments and implementations. It has a certain meaning only within this whole Western philosophical and technical system, parts of which are complexly interrelated, in which all spheres are embedded one into another,” the philosopher said.

According to Kurginyan, as soon as a piece of Western equipment is taken out of all that can be called in this sense a context or an obligatory environment, it loses a certain portion of its capabilities.

“You can’t build a certain amount of Western equipment into an army that is not at the Western level, just supply that equipment there and say that the army is going to develop amazingly because of it,” the political scientist said.

In Kurginyan’s opinion, it does not matter how many of the most advanced F-35s and not F-16s, the best tanks, or anything else will be delivered, “One will deliver them there, but you graft them to the old roots, inside the old matrix, and the matrix eats them up. They lose their effectiveness. This follows from the basics of military theory.”

Kurginyan noted that it makes no sense to use high-precision weapons that will hit certain points in the enemy’s infrastructure if you cannot destroy the entire infrastructure because the infrastructure will recover, but such targeted actions will not give results.

Also, the political scientist stressed that it is impossible to detach the supply of military equipment from personnel training.

“People who are engaged in this criminal war in Ukraine, some of them are quite professional. They graduated from the relevant Soviet universities and gained the Soviet experience, not the worst. Don’t they understand how long it takes to train a member of a tank crew?” Kurginyan posed a quesion.

According to Kurginyan, if driving of a tank or a Bradley infantry fighting vehicle is the only thing expected from a tank crew member, he could be trained in two weeks or a month. However, Kurginyan notes he cannot be prepared for war in two weeks or a month.

“He can be trained to drive this equipment. He will pull all the levers and even correctly shoot somewhere, but this will not change anything,” the political scientist concluded.
