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)!
The average Russian worker had never experienced such good times! Men and women were equal in every field, and children’s rights were recognised and respected! All adults over 18 years old could vote, education was free for all and truly universal! Industrial output and agricultural were booming as the Soviet State combined full employment together with scientific organisation, planning and advanced technology! Non-Europeans (including the Chinese and Koreans amongst many others, including Africans and African-Americans) frequented the schools, factories, medical centres and sporting facilitates! The Workers and Peasant Red Army employed men and women and explored many and different ways of projecting the USSR. The population expressed their gratitude and support by continuously ‘voting’ Joseph Stalin into Office (yes, the Soviet population participated in numerous and many democratic elections)!
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation launched on its website a historical section with archival documents dedicated to the restoration of the national

A very interesting Soviet Monument to a disabled T 34-76 Tank – situated in the Karelian village of Sambatuksa (Northwest Russia). It is interesting because
The Russian people should remember the Soviet principle of ‘Internationalism’ as existing prior to and during WWII! Just as the working-class of China exercises ‘Internationalism’ across the globe (and particularly toward the contemporary Russians), the modern Russians must look beyond the superficial ‘Nationalism’ which is sweeping their homeland as a response to the collective condemnation of the West! We – the working-class people of Britain – DO NOT support the Tory government’s arming and financing of the Neo-Nazi ‘Maidan’ regime of Ukraine! We REJECT the continuous pro-Neo-Nazi propaganda broadcast by the bourgeois British media! The Ukrainians that have fled Donbass ARE NOT legitimate refugees (such as the Sudanese recently murder by the Spanish and Moroccans) but are fleeing WAR CRIMINALS! Do not support these people! The working-class of Britain STANDS with the people of Russia in her righteous fight against the US-backed Neo-Nazi ‘Maidan’ regime of Ukraine! Together we can defeat the Nazi menace yet again!
