I think every period of time, every stage of time, every year, and in a person’s life, by the way, and in the life of a country, this and that year, perhaps, can also be considered a year, as you called the first one.

A time of major changes. Fundamental changes. But there are always missed opportunities. That’s just how life is structured. Always. By the way, changes are always significant, especially since changes always bring about missed opportunities. That’s why I would answer your question so vaguely, because changes, of course, do happen.

And I must say, in my opinion, I wouldn’t say that they are fundamental yet. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, but they are happening. And I think that the main changes, by the way, seem to be within the country first and foremost.

After all, as I have already mentioned, to some extent, or maybe just without any extent, really, the Special Military Operation launched a kind of revolutionary process in Russia.

It’s quite difficult, I’ve talked about this, for the public to grasp such a notion, since we have such cliches, stereotypes, we have a revolution, something like that, like Eisenstein, right? Sailors there…

Sailors clambering over the gates of the Winter Palace. This is a famous scene that is now used as a documentary about the October Revolution, about the Russian Revolution. Although, in fact, I originally made it all up, but here’s an example of an artistic image.

Well, something like that, but in fact, revolutions can happen in completely different ways and without such external signs like revolutionary sailors adorned with grenades. It seems to me that something similar is actually happening, because

After all, the system that has formed in Russia since 1991, after that revolution, was also a revolution or a counter-revolution, depending on the side. Depending on the side, but the main thing was that there was a change of ownership.

It was a revolution, yes. And it led, in general, in my view, well, to capitalism, but with a strong comprador, so to speak, slant. Just comprador capitalism. Probably nothing else, by the way, I didn’t like it very much, but apparently, historically nothing else could be.

That is, the new bourgeoisie, which quickly formed from the party Soviet bureaucracy, was oriented only towards the export of raw materials. And that is comprador. And from there everything. And comprador culture. By the way, there is a lot written now about this party. But what’s there to be surprised about? It was cultivated for 30 years. There. Well, in short…

And as it seems to me, Putin, I don’t know consciously or just due to his inner beliefs,

Changed this matter evolutionarily. After all, under him a new industrialization began. They began to build factories, roads, military industry. But this was an evolutionary path, apparently. I think that was right, that is, without shocks.

But it seems to me, the Special Military Operation has drastically accelerated this whole process. And we’re just observing it. And without the Special Military Operation, it seems, it could not have been done. That is, we were simply cut off. What is comprador bourgeoisie? It is, first of all, oriented towards Western banks, the Western financial system. We were cut off from it. Accordingly, whether you like it or not,

you have to build your own national industry. I see how, after all, money began to be invested, enterprises started, some… some…

barriers were removed, our domestic business began to develop. We see this. That is, this is such, I would say, nationalization of Russia. That is, this is the end of the comprador capitalism that was in Russia, but it is already such, in my view, it can be called a revolutionary path already. That’s what the Special Military Operation has done.
