ZCommunications » Eastern Ukraine People’s Republics Between Militias and Oligarchs | real utopias | Scoop.it

The war between the Ukraine government and the republics of Novorossiya [New Russia] is gradually taking on the character of a positional stand-off. The resources of both sides are exhausted, and fighting reserves are at an end. For the people’s republics, defending themselves against the many times larger military forces of the Kiev regime, the well-known principle of “a government needs to win, but for an insurrection it is enough not to lose” operates with full force.

On the Left or in Russia? The Strange Case of Foreign pro-Kremlin Radical Leftists | KRYTYKA

On the Left or in Russia? The Strange Case of Foreign pro-Kremlin Radical Leftists | KRYTYKA | real utopias | Scoop.it
All governments face people living beyond their borders, both foreign and native-born, who are either detractors or advocates of its policies. Vladimir Putin’s government is no different from any other in this respect. What is odd about the Russian case is that radical leftists are among those who support the Russian ruling class and its decidedly capitalist and imperialist government.

The Ukrainian Revolution & the Future of Social Movements / CrimethInc. Ex-Workers' Collective

The Ukrainian Revolution & the Future of Social Movements / CrimethInc. Ex-Workers' Collective | real utopias | Scoop.it

The movement in Ukraine is not the only one to occur in Eastern Europe; it’s just the most spectacular. It was preceded by tremors in Slovenia, Bulgaria, and elsewhere; more recently, Bosnia erupted, though thankfully most of the participants there explicitly disavowed nationalism. Barring world revolution, the crises inflicted by capitalism will continue to provoke social unrest until the emergence of some massive new mechanism of control or appeasement.

Russia's “Humanitarian Invasion”: As Kiev Tries to Terrorize Donetsk Into ... - Center for Research on Globalization | real utopias | Scoop.it

The West is trying to turn the Russian humanitarian aid convoy “… into a duplicitous dangerous act because it would better fit with the kind of scenario that they have been putting forth about Russia being a predator or being the provocateur,” says renowned author Dr. Michael Parenti, a political scientist from Yale University, a historian, and a cultural critic, in an interview with Radio VR.
