Behind the scenes, however, the US was supplying money, resources and weaponry to these extremist groups which were based primarily within the Western areas of Ukraine – the geographical area with the greatest number of Catholics. Whilst the Soviet Red Army moved forever onward toward Berlin in late 1944, the Special Forces of the NKVD were brought in behind its lines to take up the fight against the remaining ‘non-surrendered’ Nazi German Officers and the Ukrainian SS ‘Volunteers’ that they led! Their hide-outs were strewn throughout the forested areas of Western Ukraine – and the NKVD Special Force had to fight what should probably be termed ‘Neo-Nazi’ forces (as these battles extended beyond the formal ‘Surrender’ of Nazi Germany’s in 1945) – battles that lasted between the years of ‘1945-1947’. Indeed, the British BBC Journalist ‘Alexander Werth (based in the USSR during WWII ‘Dedicates’ his book entitled ‘Russia at War’ to a personal friend of his – who fought in the NKVD Special Forces during these brutal and bloody battles)!
Wagner PMC Anti-NATO (English) Recruitment Video! (30.1.2023)
Richard Wagner was a primary inspiration for Adolf Hitler – and yet the Russian ‘Volunteers’ who fight in Donbass today not only name their Regiment after this bigoted fool – but also make use of the skull emblem used extensively by the Hitlerite SS Divisions! Fighting US-backed Neo-Nazism throughout Eastern Europe (and the Ukraine) is one thing – but supporting Russian Pan-Slavism without question is quite another! The average Russian person in the USSR always looked for support to the toiling masses who lived beyond the boundaries of the USSR – we were working-class ‘Comrades’ waiting for the World Revolution together – but today, on the many discussion forums available the average Russian perpetuates race-hatred toward all people living in countries whose Bourgeois governments disagree with Russian policy in the Ukraine. This is now the typical ‘Nationalism’ which Russia pursues. Even the so-called Russian, Donetsk and Lugansk ‘Communist Parties’ fall into lign with this Bourgeois thinking and acting!
The Bourgeois Russian government is thoroughly ‘capitalist’ and encourages its society to be riddled with backward religiosity! The religiosity of the Russian Orthodox Church is just as bad as the contrived Ukrainian Orthodox Church – with its inverted view of reality, racism, misogyny and homophobia! Many of its monks and priests I have met exude what I term ‘pure evil’! There is nothing holy about any of these self-seeking deluders of humanity! The Russian government, whilst generating tens of thousands of casualties in Russia (on both sides) do not want any social instability that could lead to a ‘Socialist’ uprising! I reject ALL this Bourgeois reaction perpetuated by modern Russia and lament the destruction of the 1917 Great October Revolution! And yet we are still left with the problem of continuously expanding US hegemony which we have been accommodating throughout Western Europe since 1945! It is true that Russia is confronting it – but it does not offer ‘Socialism’ in its place – merely a form of ‘capitalism’ controlled by Russia! Whatever the case, Ukrainian Neo-Nazism must be defeated – and so should the fascism Russian Pan-Slavism!
Russia: Capitalist Baby-Steps Toward ‘Bourgeois’ Freedom of Thought! (6.12.2022)
My view is that if an individual is ‘forced’ to accept an imposed point of view decreed by a government – then a country is ‘fascist’! This is exactly what developed capitalist countries do to their ordinary citizens! The US, UK and EU are prime examples, whilst many former Eastern European members of the USSR are now pursuing Neo-Nazi political pathways – all disguised as ‘Democracy’ and supported by the US! Modern Russia feels that it must ‘relate’ to its Soviet past (I can see this changing overtime) and so although inundated with fascistic modes of totalitarian thought itself (as can be seen through the illiberal attitudes as expressed by ‘Anton Korobkov-Zemlyansky’ and his student friend ‘Stepan Antropov’) – rejects ‘Hitler’ due to the mass-murder and destruction his regime inflicted upon the USSR (which included Russia)!
The lunacy (and anti-intellectualism) of modern Russia includes the bizarre conspiracy theory that the US is supporting Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine as a means to import homosexuality into Slavic lands (rather than simply projecting ‘hegemony’) and attempting to ‘corrupt’ the idea of Russian Manhood as defined through the fascist ideology of ‘Pan-Slavism’! So, there is nothing ‘suspicious’ about an older (male) lecturer coming to the rescue of a younger (male) student – with a large ‘Z’ painted on his chest…?
The Neo-Nazi Ukrainian Conflict – a Tale of Two Fascisms! (3.12.2022)
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.
A ‘Red’ Remembrance Day! (12.11.2022)
In 1956 – the USSR was corrupted by Khrushchev’s corruption – and the Revolution lost its essential Marxist-Leninist character! Russia has been dealing with loss ever since the Russian Socialist Revolution of 1917! Today, many ordinary Russians hold right-wing and far-right viewpoints – believing that the West is attempting to corrupt the pure ‘White’ Russian character with ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘homosexuality’! It is perhaps one of the greatest ironies that these ideas of social organisation and tolerance toward ‘difference’ actually originated within the Soviet Union and spread to the West – permanently effecting Western cultural development forever! Our grandfathers and great grandfathers fought in WWI and WWII – and we are very proud of them!
