The US-backed President Zelensky of the Ukraine has stated that Sidorko was a “misunderstood” youth who needed an outlet for his youthful vigour! (Zelensky was reported as being “furious” – when he was unexpectedly asked at a recent Press Conference ‘How many sides does a football have’ by “Agents Provocateurs” – after he could not answer the question). Sidorko was planning on supporting the US Soccer team at the 2022 World Cup – but his hopes were dashed when he was informed Qatar was an “Islamic” country!
The mental illness recorded on film above, shows an area whereby well-armed and equipped Ukrainian soldiers were killed in earlier battles with Russian (or ‘Allied’) soldiers – with their fully dressed bodies simply being ‘left’. As a consequence, many have skeletonised whilst remaining in their dying positions. As the nature of war tends to produce dead bodies – it might be convincingly argued that this is to be expected – and this would be correct. These soldiers may well have been killed by bullet or bayonet – or perhaps caught on the very edge of some type of explosive power (as their bodies and equipment are fully intact)! What the Russian cameraman states is that this is a fluid frontline area that has seen much hand-to-hand ‘bayonet’ fighting with its occupation (and ‘control’) changing sides on a regular basis. However, what is also observed is that occupying ‘living’ Ukrainian soldiers occupied these entrenched areas whilst sitting, standing and lying next to the corpses of their Comrades who were killed during earlier battles – and whose bodies were NOT recovered or treated with respect in any way by the Ukrainian Forces still with us! Surely this is yet another example of the ‘mental illness’ that the capitalist system has ‘normalised’ and serves as the water the Bourgeoisie take great pleasure in making us all swim within!
Following these two refusal(s) to obey the Unit Commander’s Direct Order(s) to leave for the Combat Zone – Criminal Cases were initiated against both of under Article: 332 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – Part 2.1 (“Failure to Comply with an Order”). Punishment varies from 2 to 3 years in prison. The Servicemen in question were detained whilst on parade.
President Putin ordered this procedure to be filmed – whilst demonstrating an air of Slavic compassion! If these men ‘Volunteer’ for the ultra far-right (Russian) Wagner PMC (Mercenary Group) – these ‘Charges’ will be dropped!
After all, our only choices are between Russian and Ukrainian racism – that is ‘degrees of racism’ – and is no choice at all! I bet Hitler is laughing in his grave when he heard the Russians have a privately funded military Unit named after his favourite composer – the rabidly racist Richard Wagner (the badge of which features a ‘Skull’ mimicking the ‘Skulls used in many of the Nazi German ‘SS’ insignia)! Modern, capitalist Russian has more in common with its American counterpart (as both are currently administered by the Bourgeois) than it does with the (Socialist) Soviet Union! Today’s argument is nothing more than a spat between two branches of the ruling Bourgeoisie over whose interpretation of history (and present model of modernity) will donate in the Ukraine. Once again, in true oppressive style, it is the minds and bodies of the working class that are used as the fuel to power this exploitative process.✊✊✊
Until the return fire comes in! Then material reality comes a knocking. I have always said that the link between the socio-economic system of predatory capitalism – and mental illness – remains essentially untapped and more or less completely unexplored either medically or academically. This is because the powers that be, that is the democratically elected (liberal) governments (and the elites that sustain such entities) – do not want this association known. If it were properly understood that the routine exploitation of the minds and bodies of the individual components that comprise the masses leads to a dysfunction in a significant section of that population – then the intelligentsia might start writing articles calling for its abolition and replacement. This is a slippery slope that the US government (and its European lackeys) certainly does not want the world to know or even consider. Instead, a game of so-called ‘calculated’ risk is played-out which sees the majority of brainwashed individuals retaining all the psychological and emotional damage within themselves (as a seething mess of contradictions and self-hate) – whilst limiting their actions to merely following lawful impulses. Racially hating everything ‘Chinese’ for example, is perfectly fine providing that race ‘hate’ is manifested through the acceptable mechanisms that define polite society!
From what I have seen whilst mixing with the Russian people via Telegram, many of them hold EXACTLY the same racist, homophobic and misogynist viewpoints as their Ukrainian counterparts – but just happen to be on the other side! There is no ‘Internationalism’ and the average Russian generally hates non-Russians. This is the damage done by just 31-years of capitalist indoctrination. The Wagner Group is named after a Neo-Nazi figure-head – whilst the badge of the Wagner Group usually depicts a ‘skull’ – similar to those used by the Hitlerite SS Units (particularly the ‘Deaths-Head’ Units)! Recently, the Wagner Group murdered a prisoner using a sledgehammer to the head (all filmed and uploaded) and Putin had the head of RT (a woman) go on air and ‘justify’ the murder! We certainly are down the rabbit hole on this one! Supporting the Russia fight against Ukrainian Neo-Nazism does not (and should not) equate to an automatic support for Russia Neo-Nazi (and Neo-Fascist) attitudes! I suspect the Trotskyites are loving this as it is all unfolding to Trotsky’s dream – a point little expressed by the Left (if we can still call it that)!
