The conflict in Ukraine did not start in February 2022; it started a long while before. The 2014 Maidan coup installed a fascist government led by the followers of WW2 Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera.

This coup was actually the first blow in the long fostered but yet-to-be declared war against Russia.

The coup enraged the people of Crimea and the Donbass, who refused to live in a state ruled by fascists. Crimea held a referendum in which the population overwhelmingly decided to rejoin Russia.

Ever since 2014, the Ukrainian military, backed by the fascist Azov battalions, has been bombarding the Donbass republics. In the eight years to February 2022, this shelling had killed 14,000 people, overwhelmingly civilians, while CIA-backed militia were terrorising the resistant population all over Ukraine on a daily basis.

The war going on in Ukraine today is not between Ukraine and Russia. It is a proxy war waged by the neo-nazi Nato alliance, which wants regime change in Russia in order to loot that country’s vast resources. Faced with this threat to its very existence, Russia has had little choice but to resort to force, with the twin purposes of denazifying and demilitarising Ukraine.

In this war, workers and all of progressive humanity must support Russia, which is waging a heroic fight against the combined forces of imperialism.

Join us for the launch of our vitally important new book on the subject, including presentations and time for audience discussion.
