In Welcome to the Forum
Several days ago in France, in the Country Email List announcement on Facebook of the demonstration " for peace "organized by the young people of the New Anti-Capitalist Party (NPA) on the sidelines of the great demonstration in support of the Ukrainian Country Email List people that was taking place in the Republic Square, it could be read that the military invasion of Ukraine by Russia was a reaction of Russia to NATO's aggressive policy. It could be Country Email List read that the organizers support those who " both in Ukraine and in Russia fight against the war " . Now, the Ukrainians are not fighting the Country Email List war: they are, despite themselves, at war with Russia. Is this then anything other than an invitation to surrender? When the war broke out, given the overwhelming superiority of the Russian Country Email List forces, I myself hoped that kyiv would be occupied within 48 hours, so that at least the price to pay for certain defeat would be as low as possible. But I was amazed, and I think we were all amazed at the resistance of the Ukrainian army and population. It is important for comrades to understand Country Email List that this is not just the neo-Nazis' business today, not even the Ukrainian capitalist state, nor the Western imperialist states. My anarchist, socialist and feminist Country Email List friends participate in solidarity groups, organize collections for the Ukrainian army, mobilize in territorial defense groups. The population as a whole seems very determined to defend the simple right to Country Email List live in peace in their country, Certainly, we must not close our eyes to the dark prospects of all the possible outcomes of this war. As a Ukrainian, a Russian-speaker and a Marxist, I have watched with concern the political developments in my country since 2014, from the dismantling of the statues of Country Email List Lenin and the decommunization laws to the proliferation of far-right paramilitary groups and the war in Donbas.
