Russian philosopher and political scientist Alexander Dugin commented on the results of the parliamentary elections in the Netherlands, and the defeat of the party of eurosceptics Geert Wilders.
Dutch channel NPO quoted Dugin on the losing party’s “eurosceptic”: “Wilders is not quite ours, he is anti-Islamic, hard, Pro-Israel, he is actually a liberal. Russia symbolically supports such figures not so much because of ideological affinity, but rather how much opposition they have to the globalist liberal course”.
On the attitude of Russia to the Wilders, according to the analyst, they are not influenced when Wilders advocates for the rights of gays, lesbians and transgender people – because it is contrary to our traditional values. “In Russia people are more interested in how long there will be a “this monstrosity called the European Union” – says Dugin.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Russian philosopher leaves the Wilders right to self-determination and acknowledges that he understands the nuances of the Dutch reality better liberal opponents, according to “Constantinople”
