Kurginyan names Russia’s key difference from Ukraine

09.08.2023, Moscow.

Russia differs from Ukraine in that is has a thousand year history of statehood, the leader of the Essence of Time movement, philosopher and political scientist Sergey Kurginyan writes in his article The “Russian Challenge” or the “Russian Response”? in the collective monograph Ukrainism.

Everyone – Ukraine’s Western sponsors and those who watch in astonishment what is taking place as well as our compatriots involved in the Ukrainian tragedy – equally understand that Ukrainian statehood is not a long-term historical constant of being of the territory’s population, which in a moment became the territory of a new state, which can well be called the Belovezhye Crime, Kurginyan writes.

According to the political scientist, this difference of Ukraine is decisive for the situation around this country. Russia’s historical existence has lasted over one thousand years, while Ukraine appeared for the first time as a state only after the USSR collapsed.

Kurginyan stressed that Ukraine is vulnerable both because of its internal heterogeneity and non-sovereign background and because of blatant illegitimacy of the Belovezhye betrayal.

On July 12, 2021, President of Russia Vladimir Putin in his article About the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians noted that the project of Ukraine as an “anti-Russia” promoted by the West had no room for sovereign Ukraine. Similarly, this project has no room for political forces that try to defend its actual independence.
