Following the ‘Six Day War’ of 1967, which saw an expansionist Israeli illegally annex more Palestinian land – and land of its Arab neighbours – the Soviet Union cut-off all diplomatic relations with Zionist Israel, and stepped-up its economic and military aid to the Arab countries of the surrounding region. The Soviet strategists pin-pointed the US supplied Israeli Airforce, as being the key attribute of Zionist Israel’s imperial power. Zionist Israel always used its US-supplied military aircraft to devastate the large Arab military ground formations, using modern technology to sweep aside any competing Arab Airforces. Once air supremacy and/or air superiority had been achieved, the US-supplied Zionist Israeli ground forces would go in, causing high casualties and confusions in the defending Arab armies. The Soviet thinking was to construct a region-wide (and integrated) surface to air missile defence system, calibrated to exactly target and neutralise incoming Zionist Israeli warplanes. Without Zionist Israel gaining air superiority and/or air supremacy, its ground forces would be unprotected as they aggressively moved into lands beyond the geographical borders of Zionist Israel. As the combined Arab armies possessed far more soldiers than Zionist Israel’s imperialist troops, the logic dictated that the Arab weight of numbers should carry the day. Zionist Israel would be defeated, and the Arab countries could go to the UN and ‘demand’ freedom for Palestine.

President Nasser of Egypt resented the loss of land sustained by Egypt in the ‘Six Days War’ at the hands of Zionist Israel. His successor – President Sadat – eventually lost patience with the thousands of Soviet military advisors present in Egypt – and had all Soviet forces expelled during July, 1972. This situation left in place an elaborate Soviet air defence system that needed expertise to operate it. In the meantime, The activities of North Korea had impressed the Egyptians, particularly with regard to its detaining of USS Pueblo – a US warship disguised as a ‘research’ ship which had deliberately entered North Korean waters on a spying mission. North Korean forces attacked and successfully boarded the USS Pueblo on January 23rd, 1968 – killing one US servicemen and capturing the 83-man crew (which were held for 11 months in captivity). Also at this time, North Korean military activities aimed at the US imperialist forces on the Korean Peninsula dramatically increased, with the seizure of the USS Pueblo coming less than a week after President Lyndon Johnson’s State of the Union address to the United States Congress, and a week before the start of the Tet Offensive in South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. Another significant event at this time involved a North Korean special forces detachment crossing into US-controlled South Korea. This happened three days before the North Korean seizure of the USS Pueblo, and saw 31 men of North Korea’s KPA Unit 124 cross the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and kill 26 South Koreans puppet soldiers, in an attempt to attack the South Korean Blue House in the capital Seoul. Then, on April 15th, 1969, North Korean forces shot-down the US EC-121 reconnaissance (spy) plane for violating North Korean air space. This highly successful military activity against the US imperialist forces in and around the Korean Peninsular impressed many Arab leaders, and led to Egypt requesting help to man its air defences in the event of any war with Zionist Israel.

North Korean Airforce

Whereas the Egyptians thought that the Soviet Union was not providing the latest military equipments to the Arab forces, it was well-known that since the fall of Khrushchev in Russia, and as part of a Soviet initiative to heal the Sino-Soviet Split – the USSR had been providing the most advanced weaponry to the Korean People’s Army (KPA) – with North Korea being a staunch ally of Communist China. From March, 1973, North Korean officials arrived in Egypt for talks, and toured the major areas of potential conflict (including the Suez Canal). This was when the Egyptian government formally requested that North Korea send military pilots to help defend Egypt from Zionist Israeli attack. This request was agreed to, with North Korean officials stating that in support of Arab Socialism, the North Korean regime will defend Egyptian territory from any Western-led, imperialist attack. In a short time, North Korean military pilots and their support crews were established on Egyptian territory, which led to Zionist Israel announcing on August 15th, 1973, the presence of the North Korean military forces in Egypt. Whereas both Egypt and North Korea issued official statements of denial, Zionist Israel stated that it would ‘destroy’ Egypt for daring to seek allies outside the region. This Zionist Israeli threat of military violence would come to fruition with the so-called ‘Yom Kippur War’.

Kim Il Sung’s viewpoint was that an alliance between Egypt and North Korea would be beneficial to both sides, militarily and economically. North Korean pilots had been fighting the US imperialists over North Vietnam, and this experience could be imparted to their Egyptian counter-parts. On the other hand, the highly aggressive and racist imperialism of Israeli Zionism created a new and highly focused form of Western, imperialist military strategy and tactics. It would be good experience for North Korean pilots to experience this highly aggressive form of imperialist expansionism, and formulate an appropriate ‘Socialist’ response to it. This is why Kim Il Sung also authorised a special military advisory group be immediately despatched to Egypt.

During June 1973, 1,500 North Korean military advisers were secretly despatched to Egypt to help the Egyptian Air Defense Force operate surface-to-air missiles (based around West Cairo). As a result of wearing civilian clothes, these soldiers were disguised as ordinary North Korean labourers working overseas (to earn foreign exchange currency). This clever deception cheated the intelligence agencies of the United States, South Korea and Israel. Before this, however, a large consultative delegation had already arrived in Egypt, consisting of 39 members of the North Korean Airforce Mission, which had long been involved in fighting for Egypt. Among these North Korean, there were 20 pilots, 8 ground technicians, 5 translators, 3 administrative personnel and 1 Political commissar, a medic and a cook, with the designated Team Leader being North Korean Airforce Chief of Staff – Zhao Minglu (赵明禄). Most of the early North Koreans pilots who went to Egypt were mostly ‘Veteran’ fighter-pilots with more than 2,000 flying hours and were experienced combat personnel. Upon their arrival, they began to guide their Egyptian allies in training, and conducted combat readiness flights along the Suez line.

In formulating plans for a theoretical battle over Sinai Peninsula, Zhao Minglu, Sadat, and Mubarak held a number of joint meetings to study a plan for the suppression of the dominant Israeli Airforce. Zhao Minglu proposed a surprise attack by the Egyptian Airforce (similar to that used by the Israeli Airforce during the ‘Six-Day War’), as a means of psychologically and physically devastating the Zionist aggressor. This daring tactic would involve Egyptian fighters not to directly fly to the east bank of the Suez Canal, but instead head directly northward to the hinterland of the Sinai (through low-altitude flying). This would enable the Egyptian Airforce to avoid the frontline Zionist defences, using the ‘Art of War’ principle of ‘Replying in kind’ (lit: ‘Treat Others as They Treat You’).  After some careful preparations, on October 6th, 1973, the ‘Yom Kippur’ (Day of Atonement) Offensive began. With the help of North Korea’s Advisory Team, the Egyptian Airforce dispatched an attack formation consisting of 200 fighters, which succeed in surprising the Zionist Israeli Forces (which suffered heavy losses). South Korea’s media quoted an Israeli Ministry of Defense communiqué stating that North Korean pilots in Egypt – flying eight MiG-21 fighter jets – had shot down many Zionist Israeli F-4E fighters.

Although the ‘Yom Kippur War’ eventually ended in a draw between the Arab countries and Israel, the experience served to escalate the relations between Egypt and North Korea to the point of ‘blood alliance.’ Mubarak also established a profound friendship with Kim Il Sung. Eventually, in the years after the ‘Yom Kippur War’, Egypt turned to the United States and dismissed the Soviet Union as an ally in its fight against Zionist Israel. However, North Korea remained loyal to helping Egypt’s army and its development. In 1977, Egypt transferred two R-17E (Scud-B) missiles to North Korea and at least one 9P117 launch vehicle. These weapons were all that was given that year as Soviet aid to Egypt. Egypt’s gift was shipped back to Nampo Port by a North Korean freighter and was forwarded to Pyongyang’s Machinery Factory (code-named ;Pyongyang Pig-Raising Factory’) on January 25th, a subsidiary of the Second Economic Commission, for imitation. The mimicked missile was named ‘Hua City-5’. The first batch testing of 6 sample bombs was conducted during April-September 1984 with three successful and unsuccessful operations.

After the assassination of Sadat in 1981, Mubarak succeeded as President. In the Middle East, Egypt became a staunch ally of the United States, but on the Korean Peninsula, Egypt refused to recognize South Korea (because it was a colony of the US). Mubarak once told DPRK officials: ‘I will stick to the covenant with Chairman Kim Il Sung and vow to not establish diplomatic relations with South Korea.’ On April 6th, 1983, at a ceremony welcoming Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s visit to North Korea, Chairman Kim Il Sung said: ‘During the 1973 war, North Korea and Egypt fought side by side like brothers.’ Not until the second year after Kim Il Sung’s death, in 1995, did Mubarak establish diplomatic ties with South Korea – but only after Communist China had also established such ties. Communist China is North Korea’s staunchest ally in the region.

Rosa Luxemberg’s Bourgeois Dialectical Errors

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

SPD Party School, Berlin (1907): Rosa Luxemburg ( standing left), Wilhelm Pieck (seated to right of Luxemburg) and Friedrich Ebert (third row back on left-hand side of right row)

Rosa Luxemberg (1871-1919) was murdered on the orders of her former student – Friedrich Ebert. Friedrich Ebert had become the first President of the Weimar Republic following Imperial Germany’s defeat at the end of WW1, and in so doing, aligned himself with the rightwing of German politics. Prior to its defeat against the UK in November of 1918, Imperial Germany had deployed troops into Revolutionary Russia (alongside the USA, UK and 11 other countries), with the objective of destroying the Bolshevik Movement, and capturing or killing its leaders. It is a bitter irony that whilst British and German troops continued to follow orders and kill one another in France, a completely different set of orders (issued by exactly the same military and political authorities), demanded that British and German troops fought on the same side in an international effort to crush Soviet Socialism. Although Rosa Luxemberg opposed Germany’s participation in WW1, she remained unusually ‘quiet’ about German troops invading and attempting to destroy Revolutionary Russia in 1918.

The problem regarding Rosa Luxemberg appears to stem from her misreading of Marx and Engels, and her ‘rigid’ alignment with the Second ‘Socialist’ International which advocated (to a certain degree) a co-operation between Socialist Revolutionary forces and the existing Bourgeois State. In this regard, Rosa Luxemberg’s ideas were more ‘bourgeois’ friendly, than Socialist Revolutionary, as she spoke with the attitude of a fully empowered bourgeois individual. Rosa Luxemberg mistakenly assumed that the oppressed Working Class possessed the same bourgeois education and access to social and political institutions that she did, and that all the Working Class had to do was to ‘realise’ this apparently ‘hidden’ or ‘latent’ power. Of course, such mistaken ideas as this have more in-common with bourgeois ‘mysticism’ and ‘religion’, than with the historical materialism of Karl Marx, and firmly demonstrates Rosa Luxemberg’s thoroughly ‘bourgeois’ approach to politics. Although a woman, Rosa Luxemberg behaved with a typical (and ‘dictatorial’) paternalistic attitude. The fact that she was eventually murdered by one of her ‘bourgeois’ students only serves to highlight the reality of this interpretation.

Rosa Luxemberg hated Lenin and despised his Bolshevik Movement. Rosa Luxemberg also detested the Russian Revolution of 1917, and it is true to say that she dedicated her political activity to a continuous effort of undermining its success and hard-established power-base. Rosa Luxemberg, preempting Trotsky’s eventual treachery, utilised a corrupting bourgeois rhetoric designed to dominate and mislead the oppressed Working Class at the point of contact. One example of this rhetoric can be found in Rosa Luxemberg’s Neue Zeit Journal article of July, 1904, within which she denounces Lenin’s insistence of what she termed ‘ultra-centralism’. Working from her liberal, bourgeois ideals, Rosa Luxemberg misinterpreted Lenin’s concept of proletariat ‘centralised democracy’, with that of bourgeois bureaucracy and bourgeois dictatorship. In many ways, Rosa Luxemberg’s bourgeois attitudes laid the theoretical foundation of what would become ‘Trotskyism’, and provided the US with an ideological method to ‘criticise’ the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Rosa Luxemberg was a bourgeois reactionary exercising pretensions of leftwing revolutionary activity. Her opposition to the Bolsheviks demonstrated not an advanced proletariat mind-set at work, but rather that of a privileged ‘White’ middle class woman ‘playing’ at being a Socialist Revolutionary’. In the same article there is evidence that Rosa Luxemberg had thoroughly ‘ingested’ anti-Russian, or anti-Slavic German attitudes, as she again misinterpreted Lenin’s ‘internationalist’ and ‘proletariat’ attitude as being typically ‘Russian’ in nature, referring to Lenin as expressing ‘Russian absolutism’. Writing as she was from a distinctly ‘bourgeois’ perspective, it is laughable that Rosa Luxemberg accused Lenin of turning the revolutionary struggle upon its head! When Lenin and the Bolsheviks finally came to power, Rosa Luxemberg’s opinions were thoroughly discredited, but they still have a certain currency amongst the Trotskyite left, or those feminists who mistake middle class privilege for female emancipation.

Tate Modern: Red Star Over Russia (19.11.2017)

DSC_1404

Many, if not all Western exhibitions purporting to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution, are merely excuses for the prevailing bourgeois, capitalist system to continue to attack and denigrate the reputation of the Soviet Union, as a means to discredit Marxist-Leninism, and influence the working class away from positively relating to Soviet (Bolshevik) Socialism. It is perhaps ironic that the Tate Modern, a complex of art galleries constructed within an old (and huge) Central London factory, should host such a poorly conceived, badly organised and thoroughly ‘revisionist’ exhibition designed to convey not only the prevailing bourgeois negative view of the Soviet Union, but compounds this error by dedicating an entire room to the criminal Leon Trotsky! As the bourgeoisie has a tendency to ‘fetishize’ Trotsky, this exhibition focuses upon the removal of his image from all Soviet documentation, and completely ignores Trotsky’s open collaboration fascist Italy, fascist Spain, fascist Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany throughout the 1930s! Furthermore, this exhibition (based upon the collection of Soviet propaganda posters formerly owned by the British Trotskyite David King), has a number of historical facts incorrect. The 1905 Revolution had nothing to do with the Bolsheviks, and the February Revolution of 1917 also had nothing to do with Lenin. Stalin died in 1953 and not 1955, and Leon Trotsky was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1929 and not 1927! Lenin is treated as a potential criminal, whilst Stalin is treated as an actual criminal. Lenin disagreed with Trotsky but thought that he could be reformed through labour – but Trotsky always remained a bourgeois leftist and self-serving careerist. Whilst dedicating the last 11 years of his life to trying to destroy Lenin’s masterpiece creation of the Soviet Union – the Tate Modern commentary laughingly insists that Trotsky was Lenin’s greatest supporter! I have photographed a number of interesting Soviet posters because their original purpose was to express an entirely ‘new’ and ‘proletariat’ way of viewing the world, but I reject the Trotskyite viewpoints of David King, and the ludicrous bourgeois interpretation of events as conveyed by the Tate Modern. Nothing positive is said about the Soviet Union, and just as Trotsky’s dalliance with world fascism is ignored, so too is the Soviet Sacrifice in its war with, and subsequent victory over Nazi Germany (where the USSR lost between 27-40 million men, women and children killed and wounded). David King erroneously makes much of police photographs of suspected and/or convicted criminals which he gathered from the USSR, but the fact remains that if capitalism ever collapsed in the West, there would be millions of similar photographs ‘liberated’ from the bourgeois police archives!

RED STAR OVER RUSSIA A REVOLUTION IN VISUAL CULTURE 1905–55

A dramatic visual history of Russia and the Soviet Union from 1905 to the death of Stalin – seen through the eyes of artists, designers and photographers

2017 marks the centenary of the October Revolution. Rebellion brought hope, chaos, heroism and tragedy as the Russian Empire became the Soviet Union, endured revolutions, civil war, famine, dictatorship and Nazi invasion. A new visual culture arose and transformed the fabric of everyday life.

The core of this exhibition comes from the extraordinary collection of photographer and graphic designer David King (1943–2016). He started his collection of over 250,000 items relating to this period while working for The Sunday Times Magazine in the 1970s. The collection was acquired by Tate in 2016.

This show is an opportunity to see the rare propaganda posters, prints and photographs collected by King – some bearing traces of state censorship. Including work by El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dmitri Moor, Aleksandr Deineka, Nina Vatolina and Yevgeny Khaldei, it is a thrilling journey through a momentous period in world history.

The Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army (Рабоче-крестьянская Красная армия (РККА)

_20171114_060116

The Eternal Red Army! The ‘Red Army’ is our army. It is comprised of the people – and fights for the liberation and progression of the people (wherever Socialism develops). No other army in history has been like this. Bourgeois armies only fight for the limited objectives of capitalist governments – and do not care about the people. The Red Army only fights wars of self-defence and is a vehicle for any and all cultural development. Its purpose is not only for success in warfare – but also strives to develop the minds and bodies of the people to their maximum capacity in the service of humanity. The Red Army is an expression of Socialist and Cmmunist reality where equality and progression exist simultaneusly, and it is understood that te individual is only safe and secure within an advanced collectivity. Finally, the Red Army seeks to end all wars and establish peace and Socialism in a new era for humanity.

Rejecting the Bourgeois Publishing Industry

As an academic specialising in the subjects of Chinese history, culture and philosophy, and also the study of actual Soviet history, I decided some years ago to have nothing to do with the bourgeois publishing industry. This is despite having numerous academic and journalistic article published in newspapers, journals, magazines and books (both online and as paper articles). My experience has been that the bourgeois publishing industry works in collusion with capitalist governments, and perpetuates ‘official’ versions of history that have little or no association with established fact. These publishers are always seeking new ways of exploiting writers and their work – attempting to make money whilst they propagating ‘fake history’ and ‘fake news’ as if it was ‘real’. The lies about Communism, China and the Soviet Union are so huge that the truth of the matter is eclipsed by this industry that ruthlessly controls the publication of books to both the general public and the academic community. Individuals are left to research subjects for themselves, which invariably requires ever more ingenious methods for establishing the truth that by-passes the ‘fiction’ that circulates as ‘fact’. The rise of the internet has made it easier for progressive and free thinkers to seek-out and share alternative sources of reliable academic information, and distribute research that counters many of the official but false narratives that the media, academic community and government choose to ignore. This is not alternative history but rather ‘real’ history, with the official narratives constituting the ‘fake’ paradigm. The USSR used to have an internal publishing facility that allowed any Soviet citizen to write and publish a book that could be read by any other Soviet Citizen in the USSR. The publishing and distribution were entirely free, and encouraged to develop ‘free thinking’. Alexander Werth (the BBC correspondent) mentions this means of Socialist communication a number of times in his books. Do not bow-down to the bourgeois dictatorship of knowledge – strike out on your own and establish the real facts of the matter!

Soviet War Memorial – Remembrance Sunday (13.11.2017)

Soviet War Memorial – Imperial War Museum – London

Around a hundred people gathered on a cold November day in the ground of the Imperial War Museum (London), to pay their respects to 27-40 million Soviet dead and wounded suffered during what the West calls ‘WWII’, and the Russians the ‘Great Patriotic War’ (1941-1945). This was a brutal war of extermination and survival, with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi German forces invading the USSR and immediately initiating ‘Operation Ost’ – the intended extermination of the Slavic ethnicity. Hitler intended to use the geographical space gained from a defeated Soviet Union as a means to create a ‘Greater Germany’. In the meantime, the Soviet Red Army, whilst suffering terrible casualties and set-backs in the face of the enemy, slowly but surely began to consolidate its presence, and push the Nazi German forces back toward their homeland. The Soviet defeat of fascism essentially gave the Western powers a fighting chance in France and beyond. Hurrah to the Soviet people! Every year the number of British Veterans who fought with the Soviet Red Army reduces – with none now being under 80 years of age. As the Old Guard falls away, their place in the line is often taken by their younger relatives. As British Veterans of the Soviet Red Army are not acknowledged by the rightwing British Legion – and are not welcome at London’s Cenotaph – these brave Veterans quite rightly congregate here.

Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (2017) – Trust in the Communist Party!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The USSR lives on in memory and in material fact. It collapsed from the combined pressures of Trotsky, Khrushchev, Gorbachev and Western capitalism. What the USSR represented – as the first Workers’ State – is a tremendously powerful psychological and physical image that serves as a rallying point for millions of oppressed peoples around the globe. The 1917 October Revolution will always be significant because it signalled the successful rising of the Working Class and the smashing of predatory capitalism! Although there is much lying and disinformation in the West about the USSR, nevertheless, the internet allows opportunities to study that by-pass the bourgeois educational facilities, and which allows individuals and groups to find more reliable and authentic sources of information. The Cold War lies are still very much in operation, but as time goes by, and the work of people like Grover Furr, Andrew Alexander and Alexander Werth (and many others), become better known, the wholesome truth about the USSR (and its vital importance for the evolution of humanity) will move ever more to the fore-front of general perception. This positive counter-swing is strengthened by the presence of the Collected Works of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao (amongst others) being readily (and freely) available on the internet. As usual, the greatest challenges above and beyond the confrontation with predatory capitalism for the Communist Party is that of successfully countering Trotskyism (i.e. ‘pseudo-Socialism’), and the crippling forces of revisionism from the left. There is a wealth of legitimate proletariat literature available in the public domain which must be logically studied from a Scientific Socialist point of view. Even if certain ‘expedient’ compromises must be made with the Bourgeois State on the surface (due to prevailing socio-economic conditions), the true (and non-inverted) underpinnings of Marxist-Leninism must always serve as the dialectical ‘prime mover’ of any Communist Movement. The Working Class must always trust the Communist Party which is a collective expression of its proletariat ‘will’. The Communist Party came to power through a wave of Revolutionary activity in 1917 – and the same Communist Party exists throughout the world today, always representing and leading the ordinary people, and continuously agitating against the capitalist system. The ‘Communist Party’ in principle did not begin with the 1917 Russian Revolution, and did not end with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. It is an ongoing and unfolding process of historical materialism. Trust in the Communist Party and support it with all your proletariat being!

100 Hundred Years On – How the Capitalist West Denigrated the Soviet Union

The misrepresentation of the history and intent of the Soviet Union (and the Scientific Socialist Movement in general), is one of the greatest academic atrocities and tragedies committed by the British (and European) academic communities, probably since the art of writing and critical thinking began. Particularly disturbing – as I look through various British university books from the 1970’s and 1980’s – is the air of ‘authority’ with which the known lies were presented to the general public, through each new generation of students. From at least 1945, the British academic community – with regard to the ‘objective’ analysis of the history and intent of the Soviet Union – has definitely compromised its integrity, and sold its dignity ‘cheap’ to the American anti-Soviet ideologues! Since probably around 1950, the Soviet history was re-written so as to represent the Truman and the Marshall Plans – both foreign policy ogres of the United States, that facilitated a religious-like fanaticism against the Socialist cause, that equated being a ‘Communist’, to being the devil incarnate! Anyone who visited the Soviet Union in the 1920’s or 1930’s, and who had only praise for what they saw, were undermined by the an establishment that now said that they must have been mistaken in what they saw, and that if they wanted to keep their job and their family, they should ‘officially’ retract these positive statements. Of course, with this kind of fascist incentive, many had no choice but to ‘recant’. This is how the US government and the European academic community concocted an entirely ‘new’ and completely ‘negative’ history of the USSR, that tells more about the dark-side of the psyche of a Christian (capitalist) West, than it tells us about the Soviet Union!

How does this misrepresentation work? First and fore-most, rather like a theological theory, a lack of material evidence is interpreted as ‘proof’ that something a) currently ‘exists’, or b) has ‘existed’ in the past. This is a typical bourgeois ‘faith-based’ approach to ‘inventing’ a purely mythical (and denigrating) history. Of course, this is nothing but the ‘inverted’ mind-set of the bourgeoisie and nothing to do with the secular academics of the modern world. Why then, did the mainstream academic community in the West adopt this essentially illogical, dishonest and incorrect approach demanded by the USA? The answer is simple; despite the surface differences in culture and language throughout the West, the fact remains that all these countries are dominated by the bourgeoisie and the ruthless and exploitative capitalist system it generates and adheres to. If the Western working class were ever inspired by the Soviet experience and success, it would probably rise-up and over-throw the oppressive bourgeoisie and create a ‘new’ Soviet Union in the West. This Workers’ State would eradicate capitalism and develop a fairer Socialist society. At all costs the Western bourgeoisie had to prevent this from happening, and it called upon the irrationality of theistic religious thinking to do the job. In so doing, the concept of ‘good’ had to be transformed into the concept of ‘evil’. The concept of ‘truth’ into the concept of ‘lies’, and the reality of ‘freedom from oppression’, into the myth of the ‘enslavement of humanity’. In fact, the denigration of the Soviet Union, being as false as it obviously is, nevertheless reads like an Old Testament Prophet ranting and raving about the ‘evil’ that defies god – and how the faithful should attack and destroy that evil if they want to continue ‘live’. Something, of course, the Rosenberg’s were not allowed to do, as they lost their lives to the electric chair for daring to oppose capitalism and embrace Socialism!

Arguably one of the greatest achievement of the Soviet Regime (other than the Russian Revolution), was its victory over Nazi German fascism during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). This included all the Northern and Eastern European counties that either openly or indirectly assisted the Nazi German invasion of the USSR, fascist Italy and Imperial Japan. Of course, the fledgling Red Army had already took on and eventually beaten a combined international force of 14 countries (led by Britain, the US and Germany) during the ‘Russian Civil War’ (1918-1921) – an unjust war that saw the British Army commit a well-known atrocity at Baku in 1918. Although Adolf Hitler, Roosevelt and Churchill were on different sides during WWII, they were united in their support for capitalism, and in their hatred for Soviet Socialism. In one way or another, all conspired to destroy the Soviet Regime – but nothing worked. After 1945 a new way was tried. If the USSR could not be materially destroyed, it could be destroyed in reputation (at least outside of the Communist Bloc). This was, in reality an ‘imagined’ defeat of a USSR that never existed. As a consequence, Joseph Stalin was really Adolf Hitler – with Adolf Hitler becoming a misunderstood democrat and voice for freedom and tolerance! Every victory of the Red Army was simply a massacre in disguise, and every real atrocity committed by Nazi German troops in the USSR – was merely acts of self-defence blown out of all proportions by Communist propaganda! Every time Red Army soldiers liberated, fed, protected and befriended the different peoples they encountered (motivated by a Soviet Socialist education), these actions were re-interpreted as the manifest behaviour of the deranged and the insane! When liberated people expressed their gratitude and made positive statements about the USSR, they were attacked and denounced with a fanatical religious zeal!

 

Poverty in Capitalist Russia (2017)

The collapse of the Soviet Union (between 1989 and 1991) was a tragedy not only for Russia and Eastern Europe, but also for humanity. I read a report on the Russian language internet which sated that between 1991 and 1999, it is recorded that the death-rate in Russia rose by 5.9 million – as Soviet provision was suddenly ‘withdrawn’ from society, Over-night all free education, medical care, welfare and working State support ceased – creating starvation and medical neglect – the likes of which had not been seen in Russia since the Nazi German invasion of the USSR in 1941. Although President Putin has provided some support and stability in ‘capitalist’ Russia, wide-spread poverty and deprivation remains the norm throughout the country. within capitalism, the will of the working people is ignored, whereas within Socialism, society is geared toward meeting all the collective needs of the working class. Today, in Russia, an affluent middle class has developed that gained its wealth by ‘stealing’ all the wealth accumulated over decades of hard work by the Workers’ State. As the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution draws near, Russia is once again being ravished by the brutal forces of predatory capitalism.

Sergei Aleshkov (Aleshkin) Сережа Алешков (Алешкин) – Six Year Old Soviet Soldier at Stalingrad

Many millions of children suffered during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), with many millions more being orphaned due to the military actions and atrocities carried-out by the brutal invading troops of Nazi Germany. Many of these children died alone in terrible conditions, whilst others were tortured and maimed by the Hitlerites who were trying to eradicate the Slavic peoples. On the other hand, the tales of bravery and resistance to the Nazi German atrocities is not very well-known in modern Russia today, where the shallow ‘cult of celebrity’ has replaced the veneration of true bravery. This is the story of the youngest Soviet Red Army soldier of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). Prior to the Nazi German invasion of the Soviet Union, Sergei Aleshkov lived peacefully with his family in the village of Gryn. Sergei Aleshkov was only 6 years old in 1942, when the invading Nazi Germans executed his mother and elder brother for supporting the Partisans. This is how Sergei Aleshkov became orphaned. They lived in the Kaluga region of western Russia. The boy was saved by the quick-thinking of a neighbour – this selfless woman threw the him out of a hut window – and shouted for him to run … Sergei managed to hide in the woods. Today, it is difficult to say for how much time the wounded and hungry child wandered through the autumn forest, but he eventually met-up with the Partisans. The next summer, as the Partisans manoeuvred around (and through) the Nazi German lines, Sergei Aleshkov fell and injured his leg. but he was lucky – as he was accidentally found by Scouts of the Red Army 142th Infantry Regiment, (commanded by Major Vorobyov). He was starving, covered in mud, and dressed in tattered clothing. The Red Army soldiers took care of his wounds, washed and fed him, and made a specially small Red Army uniform for him.

from that point on, he was protected from direct contact with the brutal and ruthless  Nazi German soldiers, but he worked tirelessly in support of the Red Army troops as they fought ongoing battles. Between battles, Sergei Aleshkov raised morale by singing poems and songs, and during battles he carried ammunition to the front-line troops (keeping them supplied), as well as passed-on messages and delivered mail. The soldiers of the Red Army treated Sergei Aleshkov as if he were their own son. However, the commanding officer of the Regiment – Major Vorobyov – eventually adopted Sergei Aleshkov, and even accredited Sergei with helping him meet his beloved wife – Nina – a nurse. This was after a bomb had hit the dug-out Major Vorobyov was operating from during the Battle for Stalingrad, blocking the entrance and sealing him in. As there was little air, Sergei Aleshkov tried to pull the debris away from the entrance himself, but was not strong enough. Instead, despite the Nazi Germans heavily bombing the area, Sergei Aleshkov ran through the falling bombs and into the surrounding trenches (that were receiving enemy fire), where he told other Red Army soldiers what had happened to Major Vorobyov. In the process, Sergei Aleshkov was shot down (along with many other Red Army soldiers), and was wounded in the legs yet again. After this, a rescue party was immediately sent to rescue Major Vorobyov. After the battle, he was well looked after and cared for by all concerned – as news of his bravery spread throughout the Red Army. For his bravery, Serezha Aleshkov was awarded the Medal for Military Bravery.

On another occasion (whilst stationed on the Dnieper), Sergei Aleshkov spotted two men hiding in straw near-by. After reporting this sighting, it was revealed that these were Nazi German Scouts who were spotting for the fascist artillery and bringing fire down upon the civilian areas. After his military service, and on the orders of the High Command, he was enlisted in the Suvorov School situated in the city of Tula. Although as a youth and young man, he suffered disabilities from his leg injuries, Sergei Aleshkov trained in law, and became a very effective lawyer – always representing the rights and interests of the ordinary people. He eventually worked as a prosecutor and remained a man of honour, constantly fighting for justice. The science of war forever teaches us to value honour, conscience and brotherhood
