Although fascist attitudes were projected into the totality of the post-Soviet space by the US between 1991-2000 – this has coalesced in many Eastern European countries (such as the Ukraine) as blatant Neo-Nazism – although within Russia these same far-right attitudes avoid this Hitlerite trap and tend to gravitate toward Pan-Slsvism. This distinction allows the Russians to maintain that they reject Hitlerism (after all, he did murder around 41 million Soviet men, women and children) whilst accusing other countries of supporting him. This confusing situation is abit like Shroedinger’s Cat – which is both ‘alive’ and ‘dead’ simultaneously – depending upon how (and when) the box is opened! Modern (capitalist) Russia is both ‘fascist’ and ‘non-fascist’ – depending upon how it is encounteted. The Ukraine, however, is Neo-Nazi, but as it is being armed and financially supported by the West – it must also adjust it’s Neo-Nazi ideology to accommodate the many liberal attitudes the West (primarily the US) contains. This has generated the absurdity of Ukrainian Hitlerites being forced to accept the very ‘gayness’ Hitler ejected! In fact, Hitler routinely sent monogamous homosexual men to the Death Camps whilst his SS Regiments practiced Gay rape! Ironically, whilst rejecting the ideology of Hitler, many modem Russians ‘agree’ with Hitler’s anti-gay stance – an inconsistency in logic that is obscured in Russia by the need to conform to the mission statement proclaimed by Vladimir Putin (and his Russian Orthodox Church agenda)! The fact that the Soviet Red Army ‘Liberated’ what was left of these Gay men is simply ignored. A genuine Communist is Anti-Fascist, which means a position has to be adopted which is supportive of Russia’s Anti-Fascist War against Neo-Nazi Ukraine – whilst at the same time rejecting Russia’s internal (Pan-Slavic) fascism. These are the choppy waters we must all attempt to navigate.
