Since 1991, the post-Soviet space has been inundated with far-right political ideology and religious extremism – as it is a combination of these two ideological thrusts that the US believed would uproot the ‘Internationalism’ and selfless and caring aspects perpetuated by the ideology of Marxist-Leninism! This is why Russia today is inherently (and disturbingly) racist, sexist, homophobic and highly nationalistic! All these things are present amongst the Russian population – and yet the same population appears collectively to be unable to discern the contradiction that these cultural attributes are ‘fascist’ and directly mirror the equivalent Neo-Nazi attitudes common throughout the Ukraine! In other words, Russians are being asked to fight and die in the Ukraine in an attempt to stamp-out exactly the same far-right ideology that runs rampant in their own country! In reality, this far right ideology was imported into the post-Soviet space by the US between 1991-1999 – after which time Russian leaders started to take control of their own country in a more effective manner. Therefore, there is no ‘Socialism’ within Russia and Russians in general react to the conflict in Ukraine with an unquestioning and thoroughly ‘racist’ nationalist fervour! The point is that as repugnant as modern Russia is, as a nation Russians are fighting the Neo-Nazism the US, UK and EU have financed and armed in the Ukraine. I oppose Russian capitalism just as much as I oppose Ukrainian Neo-Nazism – but as the Russian Armed Forces are currently opposing Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine – I narrowly support that fight.
The bourgeois ‘lie’ that then followed (fuelled by ‘Orwell’ and others), was that this purge of traitors was a) ordered personally by Stalin, and b) aimed at Red Army Officers who hated Stalin and wanted him removed! Stalin was the least of their worries as he possessed very little personal power (being ‘elected’ into Office), but this false story has ‘stuck’ in Western discourse and is found almost universally in explanations of ‘why’ the Nazi Germans were able to make such in-roads into the USSR in the first six-months of their 1941 attack! The fake story is that Stalin’s purges so weakened the Red Army that it was unable to perform its allotted duties when push came to shove! This is disingenuous to the power of the racist ideology Hitler propagated and the ‘new’ tactics and very good technology that Nazi Germany developed – and the fact that when all this was integrated within the German people it defeated the combined military might of Western Europe in a matter of days – with Stalin having had no direct influence over the Officer Corp of those defeated countries!
5) The UN understands that Russia is acting both ‘legally’ and ‘lawfully’ – and that it is the US, UK and EU which are having political, legal and military problems trying to brainwash their respective populations into believing a ‘lie’ (namely that ‘Russia has invaded the Ukraine’) – whilst staying within the legally prescribed boundaries!
