Faisant de nombreux morts, la guerre a commencé en l’Ukraine. Nous, militants ouvriers et révolutionnaires de ROR sommes opposé aux bains de sang.
Mais, en France, comme dans d’autres pays impérialistes, le « Camp du Bien », un large conglomérat d’intellectuels bourgeois, faussement pacifistes et vraiment belliciste a unanimement condamnée la seule Russie (le « Camp du Mal »). Ce conglomérat regroupe, en France, les Bernard-Henri Lévy, les Jadot, les Enthoven, et autres Le Maire, - mais également Edwy Plenel, et même Noam Chomsky aux USA – plus tous les autres politiciens pourris de la bourgeoisie réactionnaire, frange fascisante mêlée.

Our fifth annual English edition, Revolutionary Marxism 2021, is out, amidst the prolonged pandemic and the economic and social crisis deepened by the former. World capitalism has failed even to make vaccines accessible worldwide, let alone implementing measures to keep billions of workers safe, such as re-planning the production process in accordance with the pandemic-induced circumstances.

Yli kuukauden koko maailma on ollut järkyttynyt Venäjän ja Ukrainan välisen sodan mahdollisuudesta. Missä hysteriassa läntinen media elääkään! Skenaariot vaihtelevat, mutta kaikkia maustavat yhteydet tuomiopäivään: Venäjän aloittama täysi kybersota naapuriaan vastaan, tai Venäjän hyökkäys ja Ukrainan miehitys, ja jopa miehitys ja hallinnon vaihto Venäjän kätyreihin.
Jopa Ukrainan presidentti Volodymir Zelensky, Ukrainan ulkoministeri ja ukrainalainen media ihmettelevät länsimedian hysteriaa. Verrattaessa nykytilannetta näitten kahden maan väliseen kitkaan sitten Maidanin tapahtumien 2014, kaikki näistä toteavat selkeästi, ettei sodan riski ole nyt sen suurempi. Siksipä on sallittua kysyä lietsovatko NATO-liittolaiset sotaa Venäjän ja Ukrainan välillä, jotta voisivat ahdistaa Venäjän nurkkaan ja rangaista sitä lisää uusilla toimilla.

Ce qui se passe actuellement en Ukraine est une tragédie commune des peuples d’Ukraine et de Russie, de tous les peuples des anciennes républiques socialistes soviétiques, qui ont construit ensemble une société juste exempte d'exploitation, un nouveau monde communiste du futur. Cette tragédie est la conséquence directe de la trahison criminelle de la destruction de l'Union Soviétique, les responsables sont le président de l'URSS,, le Secrétaire Général du Parti Communiste de l'Union Soviétique (PCUS), Mikhaïl Gorbatchev, le Président de la RSFSR, membre du Comité Central du PCUS Boris Eltsine, le Président de la République socialiste soviétique d'Ukraine, membre du Comité Central du PCUS M.

What is currently happening in Ukraine is a common tragedy of the peoples of Ukraine and Russia, of all the peoples of the former Soviet socialist republics, who jointly built a fair society free from exploitation, a new future communist world. This tragedy is a direct consequence of the treacherous and criminal destruction of the Soviet Union, the blame for which lies with the President of the USSR, General Secretary of the CPSU Mikhail S. Gorbachev, President of the RSFSR, member of the Central Committee of the CPSU Boris N. Yeltsin, President of the Ukrainian SSR, member of the Central Committee of the CPSU L. M.

Происходящее в настоящее время на Украине является общей трагедией народов Украины и России, всех народов бывших советских социалистических республик, совместно строивших свободное от эксплуатации справедливое общество, новый будущий, коммунистический мир. Эта трагедия является прямым следствием предательского и преступного разрушения Советского Союза, вина за которое лежит на Президенте СССР, Генсеке КПСС М.С. Горбачеве, Президенте РСФСР, члене ЦК КПСС Б.Н. Ельцине, Президенте УССР, члене ЦК КПСС Л. М. Кравчуке, председателе Верховного Совета Республики Беларусь, С. С. Шушкевиче. Эти люди и их прямые и косвенные подельники являются государственными преступниками, предавшими не только свою социалистическую Родину и советский народ, но и собственную партию.

War was ignited in the heart of Europe on Thursday 24th February 2022. War, that can be escalated to the scale of the whole of Europe or even to a global war. Putin speaks about ”military operation” to ”defend and save” the Russian-speaking people of Donbass. On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, US president Biden talks about an ”unprovoked attack against the sovereignty of Ukraine”. In Finland, we have seen an unprecedented attack of war propaganda. Months before Putin attacked Ukraine, NATO’s top representatives visited Finland and Sweden. Secret negotiations were had with political and military leadership. War drums have been heard in other western European countries as well. In the bigger picture, in the crosshairs of imperialism is also China. Bourgeoisie media ”deliberated” about whether it would be more beneficial to strike against Russia, China, or both simultaneously.

To understand who the war in Ukraine is really between, one should look at who was negotiating for the past two months. The negotiations took place between Putin and Biden, between Putin and NATO or between Putin and Macron. Ukraine was silent the whole time. Prior to the war, politics were conducted between the USA, the EU, NATO and Russia. Since war is the continuation of politics by other means, this war is not between Ukraine and Russia. In this war Ukraine is fighting a proxy war. This in itself should be an embarrassment for the Ukrainian people. What a shame to put your own people in harm’s way for the war of others! The Zelensky government, the proxy of NATO in Ukraine, has driven the neo-Nazi gangs – the murderers of the Ukrainian working people – to the front as so-called “volunteers”. This war is the expression, by other means, of the economic and political humiliation that America and Europe have inflicted on Ukraine.

From the early hours of February 24, 2022, for the first time since the end of the Second World War, the flames of war destruction flared up in Ukraine, threatening to spread to the whole of Europe and set the planet on fire.
The Kremlin, in a speech by Putin, spoke of a "special military operation against the military infrastructure of Ukraine" which, together with the "Western bloc", threatens the populations of Donbass and "the security of Russia". The thermometer of war fever has risen in the imperialist centers, in the USA, NATO and the EU. Biden, in an emergency address, escalated threats against Russia, which he accused of "unprovoked invasion of Ukraine".

The immediate background to today's war was the change of regime Ukraine went through in the Maidan events of 2014. The importance, even the existence, of fascists and their presence both at Maidan and later in the setup of the new Ukrainian regime was almost denied by most left-wing international groups. Three months after the end of the Maidan events, a fascist band burned and killed dozens of trade unionists and leftists in the Union House of Odessa. The article below describes the events and reaches certain conclusions. Today also the fascists are very active in Ukraine. We are publishing the article below, originally published on RedMed on 9 May 2014, one more time in order to warn our readers on what kind of "revolution" Maidan was.

February 18th of 1952 is the day Turkey decided to join NATO, voted in favor by both the ruling Democratic Party and the opposition Republican People’s Party in the parliament. This anniversary began with jubilant celebrations from the NATO and AKP government front. NATO celebrated the anniversary of the acceptance of Turkey and Greece on its social media accounts. The Turkish Ministry of National Defense had the propaganda videos prepared for NATO – all too fittingly, given the US Legion of Merit awarded to Hulusi Akar, the Turkish minister of defense.

The BPP’s remarkable discipline under greatest distress should be praised for at least three reasons. First, as we have remarked below, the greatest of unflinching discipline and finesse are required to combat the repressive organs of the reactionary bourgeois state.
Second, most Left groupings today are in great disarray precisely due to lack of discipline, while a minority of sects understand from discipline an unquestioned ideological and strategic purism. The Panthers’ combination of discipline with tactical flexibility, however, was what allowed them to grow exponentially in a short period of time. We shall talk more about this point below.

Black History Month (BHM) arrives this year under quite exceptional conditions. The last year and a half has witnessed the parallel rise of the largest mass movement the United States has witnessed in decades and the fascist reaction. Immediately following the George Floyd popular revolt that swept across the country, fascist thugs flexed their muscles on a national scale for the first time on January 6th, 2021 with a putsch in Washington, DC. The old-school Democratic Party liberals captured power by riding on the exhaustion and frustration of the masses and the momentary disorientation in the Republican ranks following the January 6th debacle. Their moment of victory, however, lasted short, as they soon found out that they had no idea on how to handle the multi-layered social crisis in their hands

Les 25 et 26 décembre 1991 constituent un tournant dans l'histoire moderne. Ces jours-là ont vu la dissolution de l'Union des républiques socialistes soviétiques (URSS), l'État né de la grande révolution d'octobre 1917. Hormis le règne éphémère de la Commune de Paris pendant 72 jours en 1871, il s'agit de la première révolution qui a aboli les relations capitalistes et a ainsi établi le premier État ouvrier. La situation mondiale tout au long du 20e siècle, non seulement en Russie mais aussi dans le monde entier, a été déterminée par l'existence de cet État, dont la position a été, du moins théoriquement, fortifiée par d'autres révolutions victorieuses pendant et après la Seconde Guerre mondiale.

Les noms sont importants. Commençons donc par nommer correctement la crise actuelle : La question n'est pas que la Russie menace l'Ukraine. La question est plutôt que la Russie a décidé de mettre un terme à la menace de l'impérialisme en dressant une barrière militaire contre la menace de l'OTAN. Cette barrière a été établie à la frontière avec l'Ukraine dans les circonstances actuelles. Elle aurait très bien pu être établie dans une autre localité dans des conditions différentes. Le problème n'est pas l'Ukraine : C'est la tension OTAN-Russie.

İstənilən bir məsələni necə adlandırmağımız olduqca əhəmiyyətlidir. Odur ki, ilk növbədə baş verən böhranın adını düzgün qoymalıyıq: burada söhbət Rusiyanın Ukraynanı təhdid etməsindən yox, Rusiyanın NATO əleyhinə hərbi baryerlə imperializm təhlükəsinin qarşısını almaq qərarına gəlməsindən gedir. Sözü gedən baryer hazırkı şəraitdə Ukrayna ilə sərhəddə təsadüfən qurulub. Yəni belə bir baryer müxtəlif şərtlər daxilində başqa bir ərazidə də qurula bilərdi.

Bir sorunu nasıl adlandırdığınız çok önemlidir. Yaşanmakta olan krizin adını doğru koyalım: Mesele Rusya’nın Ukrayna’yı tehdit etmesi değil. Mesele, Rusya’nın NATO’nun kendisini tehdit etmesine karşı bir askerî barajla emperyalizmin bu tehdidine “dur!” demesi. Bu baraj bugünün koşullarında Ukrayna sınırında kuruldu. Başka koşullarda başka bir coğrafyada kurulabilirdi. Konu Ukrayna değil. Konu NATO-Rusya gerilimi.

Naming matters. So let us start with correctly naming the current crisis: The question is not about Russia threatening Ukraine. Rather, the question is that Russia decided to put a stop to the threat of imperialism with a military barrier against NATO’s threat. This barrier happened to be established on the border with Ukraine under current circumstances. It could very well have been established in another locality under different conditions. The issue is not Ukraine: It is the NATO-Russia tension.

Exactly one year has passed since Trump’s fascist gangs have attempted to take over the Capitol in Washington, DC to prevent the transfer of power from Trump to Biden.
Though the putsch emerged as a flash of lighting seemingly out of thin air a mere nine days before the succession, it was in fact one of the most predictable political ruptures the United States had ever witnessed.

The American fascist movement is regaining the momentum in the aftermath of the 2020 elections and the abortive putsch on January 6th in Washington, DC at lightning speed. In stark contrast to the classical forms of fascism in the 1920s and 1930s, today’s fascist movement is strengthening its grip on large sections of the working class. The gubernatorial elections in two East Coast states, Virginia and New Jersey, clearly demonstrate this horrifying fact.

De 1917 a 1991, durante lo que el historiador Eric Hobsbawm llamó el corto siglo XX, la situación económica, política e ideológica mundial estuvo determinada por esta realidad irreductible de la existencia de un nuevo tipo de Estado, la Unión Soviética, que simplemente eliminó la relación de capital, imposibilitando así la explotación del trabajo de los humanos por otros humanos.
