The head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, urged the world not to be afraid that Russia is falling apart .

In an interview with  The Wall Street Journal  , the Ukrainian minister emphasized that the world will not fall from this.

“I urge the world not to be afraid of the fact that Russia is falling apart. If the wheels of history have started to move, no person will change that,” Kuleba said.

The head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled the so-called “Kiev-style cutlet” speech, when the world was afraid of the collapse of the USSR.

“Instead of thinking about how to help Russia survive and become a normal member of the international community, it’s time to accept the fact that this Russia cannot be a normal member of the international community. I don’t think the world will collapse if Russia collapses. But the people of Russia will destroy their country, as it happened with the Russian Empire in 1917,” Kuleba said.

The speech “Kiev-style cutlet” is the humorous name of the historic speech of the US President George Bush Sr., which he delivered on August 1, 1991 in Kyiv. Then the politician warned Ukrainians against “suicidal nationalism”, calling to preserve the USSR and renounce independence from Moscow. The speech outraged Ukrainian nationalists and American conservatives, and the editor of The New York Times, William Safir, called it a “Chicken Kiev speech” (Chicken Kiev speech – “chicken” is also used as “coward” in English).

The collapse of Russia: what is known

The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council,  Oleksiy Danilov, said in mid-September that the disintegration of Russia began on February 24  – the day of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, when the occupiers could not quickly seize our state.

Political scientist and publicist  Andriy Piontkovsky  believes that Russia will be shaken by a civil war. In his opinion, Russia will not break up peacefully into individual republics based on ethnic characteristics, but armed clans will be formed that will fight among themselves.

At the same time, military expert Petro Chernyk  noted that the process of Russia’s disintegration could take even decades.

  1. I agree with Mr. Piontkovsky and I think we’re seeing the signs of Warlord formations even now. The Putinazis have encouraged corruption for more than 20 years and that sort of culture is cannibalistic and unsustainable. Even if its not starting now it seems inevitable after the dictator stops wasting oxygen.

  2. The Russian Empire will finally collapse. No empire lasts forever and the corruption which has been endemic in Russia for centuries has finally hollowed the country to a point where it can not be sustained.

What is your opinion?
