When applying for membership in NATO, the new Soviet leadership counted not least on the softening of the international situation after the death of Joseph Stalin. However, the leader of the peoples himself tried, if not to make friends with the West, then at least to show such a desire. Back in early 1949, USSR Foreign Minister Andrei Vyshinsky, through the mediation of the British Communist Party, sent a note to London with a proposal to discuss Moscow’s participation in the organization – the ideological predecessor of NATO – the ‘Western European Union’ (which would morph into the ‘European Union’ which today supports Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine). The negative answer allowed Stalin to describe this bloc as “undermining the UN “.
This attitude is a total inversion of Marxist-Leninism! Indeed, it is a victory for a) predatory capitalism, and b) Trotskyism! What I find interesting is why modern ‘Russian’ adherents to Marxist-Leninism still insist on preferring a ‘Russo-centric’ (‘nationalist’) view of reality? Infiltrating ‘nationalism’ is one of the greatest betrayals of Marxist-Leninism and has been so successful outside of China that most European ‘Leftists’ take it for granted and see it as normal! Most post-1991 so-called ‘Communist Parties’ have abandoned ‘Internationalism’ as if such a pan-working-class attitude was an ideological mistake made by Lenin! The USSR is NOT a place but a concept.
Due to Russia’s military action of ‘De-Nazify’ Western Ukraine – we were told NOT to attend! The question is ‘why’? On May 1st, during the May Day March through London – Soviet Red Flags were seen flying (carried by all kinds of British people) and their was a general air of dismissing the Tory-led and BBC empowered pro-Neo-Nazi message currently being perpetuated by the British State! My Grandfathers (who fought during WWII in France, Germany, the North Atlantic and Hong Kong) would have been disgusted to see a Britain they fought for kow-towing to a Tory right-wing government and a corrupt British Establishment! My family would have attended the Soviet War Memoria and ‘stood’ in Solidarity and pride with our Russian Comrades!
