MINSK, 12 May (BelTA) – The Kiev regime and NATO member states do not want the special military operation to end as soon as possible, Russian political scientist, publicist Sergei Kurginyan told the On Point online project on BelTA's YouTube channel.

He listed the main reasons why Russia's opponents are interested in escalating the Ukrainian conflict. “Even before the start of the Russian special operation, the West signed an unthinkable lend-lease to militarize Ukraine. They admitted that this was done back in January. This means that they were initially interested in an arms race. Why should they drop it now? Zelensky and his people are looking forward to getting this unprecedented amount of dollars. After all, this can be stolen and used to their advantage. In the end, the U.S. Congress itself applauds them,” Sergei Kurginyan said.

The political scientist added that the parties that are interested in the further escalation could not care less about human losses. “The way they act shows how indifferent they are to human lives. They are absolutely okay with what is happening now in Ukraine,” the political scientist noted.

Sergei Kurginyan commented on the attitude of the Russians to the special military operation. “After the start of the conflict in Ukraine, the Russian people realized how much they are ‘loved'. And in this situation, we see the rise in patriotism and approval of the actions of the Russian leadership by people from all walks of life. We see this all,” the political scientist noted.

Nevertheless, a part of the Russian society is opposed to the Russian state and its actions. “This so-called intelligentsia is not at war with the regime and some mistakes of the leadership. According to their own conviction, they are at war with ‘the mortally ill people'. They have the audacity to say that it must be destroyed. Of course, our people hear this,” Sergei Kurginyan concluded.
