Victory to the anti-fascist forces of Donbass and their allies! U.S./NATO hands off Russia!

The NATO-funded Ukrainian Neo-Nazi Azov Battalion and other far right Ukrainian nationalists have slaughtered many thousands in Donbass in last 8 years.

On February 24, the anti-fascist Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, together with the Russian Federation, launched a military action with the goal of “demilitarization and denazification” of Ukraine. It is in the interest of poor and working people, anti-war and anti-imperialist forces in the U.S. and other NATO countries, to take an unambiguous position in solidarity with the anti-fascist forces. The real war danger comes from US and NATO forces surrounding Russia. The government in Kiev is their proxy, with no regard for the people of Ukraine.
The anti-fascist military action, forced on Donbass and Russia by the Western imperialist powers – principally President Joe Biden and the U.S. government – has exposed confusion and equivocation in the anti-war movement, even among socialists and communists.

Modern capitalist Russia is not an imperialist country. It had no means to become one after the counter-revolution in the USSR. It is a regional power akin to India or Brazil, primarily an exporter of commodities, not capital. To maintain its independence, Russia had to ally with other countries in opposition to imperialism. Ukraine’s coup regime, by contrast, is a pawn of U.S. imperialism that has been waging a brutal war on its neighbours for eight years and offered itself as a base for NATO aggression against Russia.

Our responsibility is to stop U.S. imperialism and its wars in all forms, and to stand in solidarity with those who fight against U.S. domination.

President Vladimir Putin went to the front to meet Russian troops during the Orthodox Easter celebrations whilst his foreign minister met Latin American leaders to strengthen political and economic ties and outline the Kremlin’s efforts to end the conflict with Ukraine

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held talks with Brazilian, Cuban, Nicaraguan and Venezuelan leaders during a tour of Latin America to promote trade and peaceful co-operation last week. Lavrov’s Latin American tour includes Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba[…]
People’s China has become the focus for peace initiatives to end conflicts not just in Ukraine but all around the world. China successfully brokered a deal between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Saudi Arabia that ended decades of hostility with the restoration of ties in March; China is also continuing its reconciliation efforts in the Middle East in settling the Yemen crisis and in promoting Israel–Palestine peace talks

This not good news for US imperialism. Their only ‘peace plan’ is a ludicrous demand for Russia’s unconditional withdrawal from Crimea and the Donbas and the prosecution of Vladimir Putin as a “war criminal”

The Americans are doing all that they can to stone-wall any calls to end the fighting[…]
The Americans can’t, however, take their own European allies for granted. Turkey and Hungary are opposed to the sanctions regime[…]
The White House said that the Brazilian leader’s “tone was not one of neutrality” and accused Lula of “parroting Russian and Chinese propaganda without looking at the facts”

Fortunately not many people take much notice of what the Biden administration says about Russia these days

THE TWENTIETH century was one of great upheavals[…]Popular movements inevitably linked with the leaders thrown up by their times -- Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim II Sung, Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro[…]
The memory of all these leaders is subjected to denigration and abuse by the hired hands of the bourgeois media and academic world. The unholy alliance of bourgeois politicians, social democrats, Trotskyites and revisionists[…]

The oppressed nations or the Czarist empire were freed and lived as equals in a Union of Soviet Socialist Republics which guaranteed everyone work, education, science and culture. The socialist system created new men and women who rebuilt the country after the destruction of the Civil War[…]
Stalin upheld Lenin's legacy against Trotsky's left sectarianism and against right deviation[…]

Stalin's memory is now being recalled in Russia and the other republics. The genuine communist movements all uphold his name. Old people, old enough to have lived under the Stalin leadership bear his photo on demonstrations. Noone carries posters of Krushchov or Brezhnev. The traitor Gorbachov is probably one of the most despised men in Russia today
