I do not (and never have) supported modern Russian ‘nationalism’ – which contains disturbing elements of bourgeois racism and homophobia, much of it encouraged by the Orthodox Church. It is the same thinking that has Orthodox Icons placed in tanks as they are constructed in the factories – as if these religious objects possess a similar (or greater) power than the anti-missile technology that is also installed – the design of the tanks and technology being ‘Soviet’ in origin and quite often logical developments of this technology brought into the modern day.
In 2014 and onwards, Canada joined with the US and the Ukraine in voting AGAINST a UN Resolution CONDEMNING the glorification of Neo-Nazism! The UK joined the EU in abstaining! Such a UN Resolution undermines the entire ideological fabric of the ‘Maidan’ State! Of course, the hypocritical media of the bourgeois Wear said and did nothing when this ridiculous US-led action occurred – because it was initiated by a ‘Black’ President! The insanity of a member of a non-White group (which has been the historical victim of White Supremacy) supporting Neo-Nazism is beyond any realms of reasonable justification! We are truly down the rabbit hole when the victims of Neo-Nazism start defending this racially destructive ideology! What do non-Whites gain from supporting White Supremacy? NOTHING!
Although Putin turned the tide of Western-generated fascism and religiosity within the boundaries of Russia from 2000 onwards – he possessed no authority to do the same in the Ukraine – and so the Hitlerite indoctrination (and the Catholic take-over) continued a pace in that former part of the USSR! This culminated in the Obama Administration (from 2013 onwards) generating direct links between the US and the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) – guaranteeing that the AFU would either directly support (or not prevent) the illegal seizure of political power by the far-right ‘Euro-Maidan’ terrorist group which was lurking in the shadows! Although this Hitlerite group of lunatics could not fight or win a democratic election – the US assisted in the recruitment of far-right thugs from throughout the White Supremacy movements across the world – to form a ‘heavily’ armed Hitlerite faction of the ‘Maidan’, which took control of government buildings, took elected politicians’ hostage and murdered others! This is how the US Obama Administration (headed by a ‘Black’ man) financed, armed and co-ordinated the ‘illegal’ usurpation of power by the Neo-Nazi ‘Maidan’ and sent the democratically (pro-Russian) government into exile! The men and women of the ‘Maidan’ had been educated in the ‘Azov’ Summer Camps which saw children aged between 5-16-years-old (during the 1990s) taken away from their parents and indoctrinated with the thinking of Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ in preparation for an ‘anti-Russian’ coup!
This article referenced above ‘inverts’ everything from top to bottom. The authors deliberately manufacture a fairy-tale premised upon fictitious and false assumptions and misleading parameters. The Western-backed Hitlerite take-over of Kyiv in 2014 is omitted and instead the Donbass resistance to Ukrainian Neo-Nazism is portrayed as the progenitor of Neo-Nazism! The expulsion of Western-backed right-wing religion from Donbass and the re-establishment of mainstream religious tolerance is presented as ‘extremism’! Russian self-determinism in Donbass is viewed as ‘racism’, and so on and so forth. What we see here, is in fact a Russian resistance to the forces of Western neo-imperialism – which have always been led by religious and political intolerance! The Russian population in question happens to be in the Ukraine – but again we are having to squeeze bourgeois ideas of ‘race’ and ‘nation’ into the post-Soviet space which was defined by ‘internationalism’ for seventy-four years!
It should be noted that Soleimani was one of the largest and most iconic military and political figures in Iran. He led the elite Quds Force, responsible for military intelligence and special operations outside of Iran itself. In addition, Soleimani has been actively involved in the Syrian conflict, supporting the forces of President Bashar al-Assad. Soleimani visited Moscow four times during 2015-2016, urging Russia to expand its military presence in Syria. Putin has called Soleimani “my friend Kasem” several times. There is evidence that it was Soleimani who pushed the Kremlin to launch a military operation in Syria on the side of the legitimate government.
On the night of February 22, 2014, dozens of Donbass patriots stood up to defend the monument-symbol of the working-class Donetsk region and did not allow the Ukrainian (Neo-Nazi) fascists to carry out the upcoming demolition of the monument! Communists and Progressive Socialists, anarchists and monarchists, workers, entrepreneurs, civil servants, law enforcement officers, veterans and student youth then stood in one line of defenders surrounding the monument to V.I. Lenin…!
