Background to the Plane Crash in Ukraine

July 18, 2014 | Revolution Newspaper |


For months there's been an escalating battle in Ukraine between one faction of the Ukrainian capitalist ruling class and their imperialist backers, the U.S. and the European Union, on one side, and the Russian imperialists and their Ukrainian allies on the other. Now, in the aftermath of the crash of the Malaysian jet, each side is blaming the other for this horrible loss of life, which includes the deaths of world-renowned AIDS researchers. Each side has been systemically lying about the nature of their battle over Ukraine. So in the aftermath of the crash it's very important for people not to jump to quick conclusions based on the claims of proven liars and mass murderers on either side, but to understand things in terms of the class forces behind these events and where the interests of the people lie.
