Presidential aide Vladislav Surkov said that Russia expected from one hundred to three hundred years «geopolitical solitude,» and noted the failure of the country’s «repeated and fruitless attempts» to intermarry with Western civilization. He wrote about this in an article for the journal «Russia in global politics».

According to him, the imposition of sanctions in 2014, «concluded an epic journey of Russia» in the West, «lightly started by the False Dmitry and resolutely continued Peter the great». At this time the Russian state «which is the only side not trying to squeeze» in the West — autocrats «hard married German women», the nobility and the bureaucracy replenished «bragagnini foreigners» and the army «victoriously, and sacrificially fought in all major wars of Europe.»

Not led to the pair and the fascination of the West with the ideas of socialism, and is embodied precisely in Russia. At the end of the last century Moscow again «asked» to Europe, have «diminished and primigenia», but a soft turn to the West again failed. Then sounded «sharanutsa to the East», however, this «journey» has been in Russian history, says Surkov.

«Russia four centuries went East and the next four centuries to the West. Neither there nor there not rooted. Both roads are completed. Will now popular ideology of the third way, the third type of civilization, the third type, the third Rome,» — says presidential adviser.

Surkov calls Russia no alternative, the third, and the «dual dual» civilization, combining in itself both East and West.

«Russia is a Western-Eastern country blood. With its double-headed state, the hybrid mentality, Intercontinental territory, bipolar history she, as expected the half-breed, charismatic, talented, beautiful and lonely,» says the politician.

This loneliness does not mean the complete isolation of Russia, but denies her complete openness, since both «would repeat the mistakes of the past». The country is to trade, to fight, to be in international organizations, to share knowledge, to cause fear and hatred, curiosity, admiration and sympathy, but «without decoys and denial,» said Surkov.

    I disagree. Russia is not half blood.

    Russia is Russia.

    Russia is Sui generis

    Chapter 7 — Creation of the Russian Civilization

    In the nineteenth century most historians regarded Russia as part of Europe but it is now becoming increasingly clear that Russia is another civilization quite separate from Western Civilization.

    Both of these civilizations are descended from Classical Civilization, but the connection with this predecessor was made so differently that two
    quite different traditions came into existence. Russian traditions were derived from Byzantium directly; Western traditions were derived from the more moderate Classical Civilization indirectly, having passed through the Dark Ages when there was no state or government in the West.

    Russian civilization was created from three sources originally:

    (1) the Slav people,
    (2) Viking invaders from the north, and
    (3) the Byzantine tradition from the south.

    These three were fused together as the result of a common experience arising from Russia’s exposed geographical position on the western edge of a great flat-land stretching for thousands of miles to the east. This flat-land is divided horizontally into three zones of which the most southern is open plain, while the most northern is open bush and tundra.

    The middle zone is forest. The southern zone (or steppes) consists of two parts: the southern is a salty plain which is practically useless, while the northern part, next to the forest, is the famous black-earth region of rich agricultural soil.

    Unfortunately the eastern portion of this great Eurasian plain has been getting steadily drier for thousands of years, with the consequence that the Ural-Altaic-speaking peoples of central and east-central
    Asia, peoples like the Huns, Bulgars, Magyars, Mongols, and Turks, have pushed westward repeatedly along the steppe corridor between the Urals and the Caspian Sea, making the black-earth steppes dangerous for sedentary agricultural peoples…
