Kurginyan: The Russian army has ruined the Ukrainian counter-offensive

13.08.2023, Moscow.

The Russian army has ruined the Ukrainian counteroffensive, the leader of the Essence of Time movement, philosopher and political scientist Sergey Kurginyan said on July 28 on the program Conversation with a Sage on the Zvezda radio station.

The loose, haphazardly organized and small Russian army at first was unprepared for war against the million-strong Ukrainian army. Having made a careless attempt to solve the problem, part of it reached an “excessively dispersed demoralized condition, which was characteristic of the Kharkov events,” Kurginyan noted.

Then, the political scientist continued, “as it happens with the Russians, from grassroots, in an incomplete and inefficient way,” the army managed to hold out and to take its shape. In acquired “some not really effective, somewhat boring, but still not sheep-like nature.”

“This army began – in a half-hearted and bureaucratically slow manner, with great difficulties that face fair criticism – to gain momentum,” Kurginyan said.

This is something that the supporters of our integration into the West did not expect to see. Neither did the expectations of the USA that Russia would totally fail come true, the political scientist said. As a result, the boasted counteroffensive failed.

“The counteroffensive turned out to be showing off and idle talk,” the leader of the Essence of Time movement said.

During the Great Patriotic War, one could hardly imagine that anyone would report who and where was to start an offensive, the political scientist stressed. The widespread idle talk and promotion campaign of the counteroffensive turned out to be a bubble that has burst.

“Because the Russian army has proven to consist not really of sheep. Or not sheep at all, but rather of some different material,” Kurginyan noted.

“And it has ruined this boasted counter-offensive!” he stressed.

We failed to take Kiev in one week as some humanitarians planned, the political scientist noted. The fierce Nazi herd enjoyed the support of the West, and it had millions of mobilized Ukrainian population.

However, in spite of the initial looseness, the Russian army finally improved its military management algorithms, and it refused to allow the counteroffensive to happen. And it stopped it, Kurginyan concluded.
