Staunton, July 14 – Russia has not made the progress toward a better future because it lacks a carefully considered nationality policy, Aleksandr Prokhanov says. The Soviet Union had one and therefore made progress. The Russian Federation today doesn’t, and consequently it cannot achieve a breakthrough.
Indeed, the Russian nationalist writer says, what passes for nationality policy now is “senseless” (echo.msk.ru/programs/personalno/2869818-echo/). But he suggests that Vladimir Putin’s focus on the three Slavic nations as parts of a single people can be the beginning of wisdom because it will allow them to pool their resources and achieve great things.
The three reflect a common origin as Putin says but they have been subject to different outside influences. Reuniting them will thus provide “enormous stimuli to development and give them the opportunity to combine their spaces, economic, religious and moral.” That combination will be “the foundation of the future Russian empire.”
