EH Carr wrote objectively and in-depth about the history of the Russian Revolution (of 1917) and the development of the USSR (in 1922)! In many ways the work of EH Carr (which stretches to many volumes) is a fair ‘Bourgeois’ analysis of this crucial aspect of working-class history, as it covers virtually all the significant areas of 20th century development within the International Communist Movement! His work on the Bolshevik Revolution and the Soviet ‘Planned Economy’ represents a historical tour de force that covers not only ‘Russian’ history but also many of the key developmental issues effecting such countries as China, Korea and Vietnam, as well as those post-1945 countries throughout Eastern Europe that formed the ‘Communist Bloc’. Obviously, in the post-1956 Khrushchev-era fair-minded historians such as EH Carr were forced to ‘insert’ anti-Stalinist lies and disinformation into their work if they wanted it to be published! Most free-thinking individuals can read between the lines in a number of EH Carr’s later works which sometimes differ in part from the glowing approach he adopted pre-1956! On the whole, however, the infrequent and atypical interferences from under-pressure Publishers can be easily seen, duly noticed and discarded as being of no historical worth! EH Carr, writing very much like Antonio Gramsci whilst languishing in an Italian prison – had to write in a pro-Communist code that the average US-controlled censor was not smart enough to catch!

Neo-Nazi Ukraine: President Zelensky Grants a Happy New Year! (1.1.2023)
Although the best Neo-Nazi ‘Nationalist’ Battalions of Ukraine where taken on and destroyed by Russia in the first few months of bitter-fighting in this war, it is still true that a steady trickle of Western-trained ‘Hitlerites’ are finding their way to the battlegrounds – although in nothing like the numbers they once were! News has got around that Russia is once again proving the racist ideology of Adolf Hitler to be ‘wrong’ and definitely ‘beatable’ on the battlefield! As can be seen from the above picture, the correct manner to greet the President of Neo-Nazi Ukraine is with the Hitlerite ‘straight-armed salute’!
