Kurginyan explains Andropov’s plan for disintegration of the USSR

11.07.2024, Moscow.

Soviet leader and former KGB chief Yuri Andropov had a plan to integrate Russia into Europe through the collapse of the USSR, said philosopher, political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on June 4 in an interview to the Metametrica channel.

“We were watching it from a close distance, and only one thing was absolutely clear – no one wanted to finish off the Soviet Union as much as the top officials from the Andropov-era KGB,” said Kurginyan.

Of course, among the KGB employees there were “plenty of patriotic, normal people who were absolutely devoted to the country,” the political scientist explained. “But this group, which I call the Bobkov group, won,” he noted, referring to General Filipp Bobkov, who oversaw the KGB’s Fifth Main Directorate.

Kurginyan pointed out that Filipp Bobkov was also misleading his close colleagues. When he was meeting like-minded people, he made statements in the spirit of the Black Hundred movement [a reactionary, anti-revolutionary, and anti-Semitic movement formed in Russia after 1905 until about 1917 – translator’s note], calling for the protection of Russians from manipulations by Jewish interests. However, in 1992, he suddenly took the leadership position as a head of the research and security department at the Media Most company, owned by Vladimir Gusinsky, an oligarch of Jewish origin.

Similarly acted Yevgeny Marchuk, the head of the KGB’s Fifth Main Directorate in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, the political scientist recalled. As a KGB officer, he tirelessly “fought” Bandera supporters, and after the collapse of the USSR, he stated that all his life he had helped Ukrainian neo-Nazis from UNA-UNSO (organization banned in Russia).

According to Kurginyan, Otto Kuusinen, Andropov’s patron and one of the founders of the Comintern, is linked with Andropov’s plan to break up the USSR so that Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, having gotten rid of the frontiers, would integrate into Europe.

It may be strange, but the fact is that Kuusinen somehow escaped Stalin’s repressions even when his wife was prosecuted, noted the political scientist.

Simply put, the main goal was “to merge with Europe at any cost”, the expert summarized. “Ilya Grigoryevich Ehrenburg [a Soviet writer, revolutionary, journalist and historian – translator’s note] had a novel called Trust, D.E., it was focused on Europe. So, the Andropov-Kuusinen plan was to become integrated with Europe at any cost, no matter what, Kurginyan noted.
