Kurginyan: The inability to read Yeltsin’s face cost millions of lives

24.07.2023, Moscow.

Russian citizens were unable to understand what former President Boris Yeltsin was thinking, which brought the country and the world to the brink of disaster, said philosopher, political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on July 11 in the author’s program Destiny.

You can always tell what a person is thinking about or what he definitely cannot think about by looking at one’s face, explained Kurginyan. And you need to ask yourself this question in order to understand what motivates politicians.

“You could ask yourself this question, seeing Yeltsin’s face in 1991, in April. Could you somewhat understand what he was thinking? Of course, he was thinking ‘about justice’”, noted the political scientist.

Probably, Yeltsin always spoke the truth, Kurginyan is giving the benefit to a doubt, including the moment when he declared that he had become a different person while flying around the Statue of Liberty, during his US visit, also while being the First Secretary of the Communist Party Committee in the Sverdlovsk region.

“This inability to understand the simplest things cost the country millions of lives and brought the world to the brink of disaster with the help of the criminal Belovezhsky agreement. What was he thinking at the time of signing this deal? The fact that millions of Russians will be left outside of their homeland and there, someone else will be telling them that they are second-class citizens? What was he thinking? He thought about personal power – Libido Dominandi. And you could see it in his eyes. He was almost a genius at it. As for everything else, he could care less,” emphasized the political scientist.

Yevgeny Prigozhin’s face clearly shows whether he thinks about national interests, or about justice, explained the expert.

In this regard, Kurginyan recalls the protagonist of Isaac Babel stories, the city of Odessa notorious criminal named Ben Krik. According to the political scientist, the author brilliantly described Mendel Krik, the head of Odessa’s cabbies at the time, and the father of Ben Krik, suggesting to ask the question what is he thinking about? As it turned out that “he thinks about having a drink of vodka, about punching someone in the face and about his horses, and he doesn’t think about anything else.
