Thiriart participated in a press conference that included, besides Dugin, colonel Viktor Alksnis and Michel Schneider. A hundred people were present to hear Thiriart.
In a very large setting, he had the occasion to run through the majority of subjects familiar to him, notably his point of view on the recent evolution of Russia:
What has been happening in Russia for two years is insane.
It was necessary to liberalize the economy, step by step starting from the bottom up and devoting 2 to 3 years per step.
Instead of that, the worst adventurers of international finance were admitted to Moscow. The product of three generations of Soviet work was put on the auction block.

Centrifugal force destroyed in five years what centripetal forces had created in four or five centuries. Firstly, it would have been better to fill up the stores with sausages and bread, favoring the creation of a million small enterprises (with between one and fifty employees).

Today England has left its place to the United States. But until recently, it indefatigably aimed to destroy the principal continental force capable of uniting the European continent into a federation…
