Biography[edit] Born in Zaporizhia, in the Ukrainian SSR
Ukrainian SSR
as the son of a Russian father and a Ukrainian mother, Glazyev attended Moscow State University, earning a bachelor's degree, master's degree, and finally a Doctor of Philosophy, all in economics. He left the university in 1990. The next year, he entered government service, becoming First Deputy Minister of External Economic Relations under Yegor Gaidar. He served in this capacity for a year, and then was promoted to Minister by Viktor Chernomyrdin, serving until 1993, when he resigned. Elected to the State Duma
State Duma
as a member of the Democratic Party of Russia in 1993, he first associated with his then-friend, and later bitter rival, Dmitry Rogozin. He resigned from office before his first four-year term was complete, as he had been named economic security advisor for the Federation Council of Russia
Federation Council of Russia
and head of the Council's analytical department. He was also associated with Rogozin and Aleksandr Lebed
Aleksandr Lebed
in the short-lived nationalist political project, the Congress of Russian Communities. In 1999, he resigned once again to run for the Duma, and was elected this time as an independent on the list of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. This time, however, he clashed with the party's leadership and, in 2003, he abandoned the party to help form Rodina, a nationalist party on the left wing of the Russian political spectrum. That year, he became one of 37 Rodina candidates elected to the State Duma. Other prominent candidates included Dmitry Rogozin, Chairman of the Duman Foreign Affairs Committee and co-chairman (with Glazyev) of Rodina, and also former Central Bank head Viktor Gerashchenko. In 2004, both Glazyev and Gerashchenko sought the presidency on separate tickets, with Rodina's leaders voting to remain neutral in the contest. Gerashchenko was nominated as the candidate of one of the minor parties that made up the Rodina coalition, which led to the Central Election Commission refusing to place him on the ballot, as he had not been nominated by the whole party. Glazyev, who had nominated himself as an Independent, did not have any such problems, and appeared on the ballot. During the election, Glazyev portrayed himself as a champion of social justice and an opponent of political corruption, particularly in the form of the Russian oligarchs. He pledged to write a guarantee of a high standard of living into the constitution, provide universal health care and free public education, triple the minimum wage, protect the rights of trade unions, redistribute the wealth belonging to the oligarchs, and increase economic growth. He also promised to eradicate the notorious Russian Mafia, purge corrupt bureaucrats and police, and protect the country from terrorism. This platform proved to be moderately popular, and Glazyev received 2,826,641 votes, or 4.1%–third place out of a field of six. Following the election, Rogozin, who had long sought to remove his rival from party power, succeeded in getting the party rank-and-file to vote Glazyev out as co-chairman, leaving Rogozin in control. This led to Glazyev and his supporters attempting to form their own party, called For a Decent Life, although this, too, suffered a setback when the Ministry of Justice refused to recognize the validity of the party. Following a split between Rogozin and Sergei Baburin
Sergei Baburin
in 2005, Glazyev re-joined the Rodina faction and reconciled with his former political partner. After Rogozin was replaced as party leader by Aleksander Babakov in early 2006, Rodina merged with the Russian Party of Life and the Russian Pensioners' Party in 2006 to create a new party, Fair Russia. Glazyev announced his retirement from politics in March 2007, and said that he did not intend to seek a further term in the Duma, arguing that Vladimir Putin's rule had crowded out all forms of political opposition and debate in the country. In July 2012, Putin appointed Glazyev as presidential aide for the coordination of the work of federal agencies in developing the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia.[2] Glazyev has authored more than forty books and hundreds of pamphlets and research papers. One of his books has been published in English translation by the LaRouche movement's Executive Intelligence Review as Genocide: Russia and the New World Order (ISBN 0-943235-16-2). In 1995 he was awarded the Gold Kondratieff Medal[3] by the International N. D. Kondratieff Foundation and the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (RAEN). On March 17, 2014, a day after the Crimean status referendum, Glazyev was one of the first seven persons who were placed under executive sanctions by President Obama. The sanctions froze his assets in the US and banned him from entering the United States.[4] However, according to Glazyev, he has not been negatively affected by these sanctions because he has neither property nor accounts of any sort in the United States, nor had he any plans to come to America.[5] Views on Russia in the 1990s[edit] In his 1999 book, A Genocide: Russia And The New World Order, Glazyev argues that the rate of annual population loss in Russia in the 1990s has been "more than double the rate of loss during the period of Stalinist repression and mass famine in the first half of the 1930s.... There has been nothing like this in the thousand-year history of Russia." Glazyev traces this decline to "the conscious policy of the oligarchy that ruled the country. Its exploitation of power for purposes of personal enrichment effectively led to genocide against the Russian people."[1] The book then underlines Glazyev's views of the stark choice that confronted Russia on the verge of the 21st century:

"Either we passively submit to a suicidal policy of self-destruction and the colonization of Russia, which has been imposed from the outside by deception and graft, or we . . . move to a scientifically grounded strategy for economic growth, improvement of the people's welfare, and restoration of the spiritual-intellectual strength and the scientific and technical potential of the Russian State."

Views on Ukraine[edit] In an interview with the National Interest[5], Glazyev said:

"The entire crisis in Ukraine
Ukraine
was orchestrated, provoked, and financed by American institutions in cooperation with their European partners. They financed neo-Nazis. For fifteen years, the U.S. and Europeans financed neo-Nazis’ training, their camps, and preparation. By U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s acknowledgement, the State Department spent $5 billion on the creation of an anti-Russian political and paramilitary elite. This work led to the sad situation that now in Ukraine
Ukraine
neo- Nazi
Nazi
and neo-fascists ideas prevail, as does admiration for, more than anything, Stepan Bandera’s associates who in their time murdered Jews, Ukrainians, Russians, Poles, and whomever they wanted, burning or otherwise killing them under Nazi
Nazi
leadership."

In August 2013 Glazyev said that stating that all Ukrainians
Ukrainians
favor Ukraine
Ukraine
to integrate in the European Union
European Union
"is some kind of sick self-delusion"[6] and, citing a December 2012 poll,[7] said "surveys by Ukrainian sociological services say something different: 35% of people prefer the European Union
European Union
and 40% the Customs Union".[6] He blamed "numerous political scientists and experts, who have fed on European and American grants for 20 years, and a whole generation of diplomats and bureaucrats that has appeared after the years of the ‘orange’ hysteria, who are carrying out an anti-Russian agenda" and "who are too far from the economy and real life, don’t really know their country’s history and are divorced from its spiritual traditions" for creating "an effect that Ukraine
Ukraine
doesn’t want".[6] However, opinion polls, e.g., a poll by German state-owned broadcaster Deutsche Welle, show that the majority of Ukrainians
Ukrainians
prefer joining the European Union
European Union
rather than the Custom Union.[8][9][10] In June 2014, in an interview with the BBC, he called the new President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, illegitimately elected due to the lack of votes in Ukraine´s Easternmost provinces; the signing on the 27th of June 2014 of Ukraine– European Union
European Union
Association Agreement likewise illegitimate. Glazyev also called Poroshenko a Nazi: "Europe is trying to push Ukraine
Ukraine
to sign this agreement by force ... They organised [a] military coup in Ukraine, they helped Nazis to come to power. This Nazi
Nazi
government is bombing the largest region in Ukraine." Asked if he believed Mr Poroshenko was a Nazi, he replied: "Of course."[11][nb 1] On 2 July 2014, Glazyev warned about economic consequences following the association of Ukraine
Ukraine
with the European Union, "Be objective — the association with the EU imposed on Ukraine
Ukraine
by force is leading to the sharp deterioration of the already poor state of Ukraine's economy, the reduction of its competitiveness, the forcing of Ukrainian goods out of the market and drop in their production, increased unemployment and decreased living standards."[13] By August 2017, Glazyev averred that "Today Ukraine
Ukraine
is an occupied territory. There is no legitimate power, there is no one to talk to, there are no people who can take responsibility for the implementation of political agreements. There are only servicemen of American aggressors who receive instructions from the American embassy, from there they receive funding and, in fact, serve American interests in Ukraine."[14] Views on the Russo-American conflict[edit] In 2015, Glazyev felt that the American capitalist model was entering an inevitable, very dangerous, phase of self-destruction. We are, he felt, "truly on the verge of a global war." Although this coming war poses a great danger for Russia, Glazyev said that the USA will fail to achieve its hegemonic goals of controlling Russia and the entire world.[15] Following the August 2017 round of sanctions against the Russian Federation by the American Congress, Glazyev suggested that the USA should be officially designated as an "aggressor country." Believing that United States' power is based in part on the status of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, Glazyev suggested that Russia abandons the dollar and liquidates its sizeable ($110 billion in August 2017) investment in the U.S. Federal Reserve.[16] Accusations[edit] On 5 July 2014, the head of the Security Service of Ukraine
Ukraine
(SBU) Valentyn Nalyvaichenko
Valentyn Nalyvaichenko
announced that a criminal action was brought against Glazyev under Ukraine’s Criminal Code Article 436 (public appeals for unleashing a military conflict).[17] Glazyev replied that "the SBU in Ukraine
Ukraine
exerts the same function as the Gestapo
Gestapo
did in the Nazi
Nazi
Germany." In his words, "the SBU is a criminal organization, and its leadership is completely controlled by American secret services."[18] Notes[edit]
