Prominent Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin said in a May 20, 2022 interview on Alsharq TV (Saudi Arabia) that Russia cannot imagine losing the war in Ukraine because this would "literally" mean the "end of the world". He elaborated that the only option is a full-scale victory for Russia and the creation of a new "multipolar" world order. For more about Alexander Dugin, see MEMRI TV Clips No. 9441, No. 9441, and No. 7839.

Interviewer: "Do you believe that the current war in Ukraine will end in Russia's favor or not? Will it be a victory or a defeat?"

Alexander Dugin: "We cannot imagine a loss in this war, because a defeat in this special military operation would mean the end of the world, and not only of Russia or Putin. It would mean the end of the world literally. So there is only one option: a full-scale victory for Russia and the beginning of a new multipolar world order."
