I am Not a Fan of Russian Nationalism! (25.4.2022)

This creates the quandary in the Communist Movements of the West whereby we feel compelled to support Russia’s fight against Ukrainian fascism – but are ideologically opposed to Russia’s bourgeois system! For me, the situated is helped somewhat, in that I know what good work the Communist Parties of Russia, Lugansk and Donetsk are doing in this fight! This is the foundation from which I draw my ideological inspiration. We would all agree that ‘politicised’ and socially ’empowered’ religion is the problem and in no way is the solution!

USSR: Valentina Tereshkova (Валентина Терешкова) – First Woman in Space (1963) By Andrey SidorchikAiF (Андрей СидорчикАиФ) (2013)

Tereshkova, contrary to the opinion of experts, was personally chosen by Nikita Khrushchev, who liked the woman’s origin: Valentina’s parents were from a simple family. Her father worked as a tractor driver, he died in the Soviet-Finnish war, her mother worked at a textile factory. In addition, Valentina Tereshkova herself began her career at a weaving mill, where she became the secretary of the Komsomol. In this, she favourably differed from Ponomareva, who came from a family of engineers and had a Ph.D. in mathematics, and Solovieva, a famous athlete, and world champion in parachuting. Tereshkova also parachuted, but Solovieva, for example, had about 700 jumps by that time, whilst Tereshkova had less than a hundred.
