REVOLUTION #375, February 23, 2015  

...Look, we’ve got this leader, who is one of those rare visionary thinkers and leaders who comes to represent and usher in a whole new phase of things in their given field of expertise. In this case he is ushering in a whole new phase of the communist revolution and a whole new conception of the kind of society and world we need to be building for the benefit of humanity. Think of the role played by a Marx, or a Lenin, or a Mao at earlier stages of history. This is the kind of visionary leader we are talking about.

Clashes Between Reactionary Forces Intensify in Ukraine

For a year, the U.S./Western Europe-backed Ukrainian government has been battling with Russian-backed Ukrainian forces for control of eastern Ukraine, which borders Russia. More than 5,300 have been killed in the fighting since last April. A recent attempt at a cease-fire has, at this moment, only intensified fighting. Rival factions inside Ukraine and respective imperialist backers all claim that they are supporting one or another so-called “democratic uprising” and fighting for the interests of the people. The reality is this is a clash between predators.

For analysis and background behind the war in Ukraine, read an excerpt from article published March 3, 2014, “Ukraine: Not a “Democratic Uprising” but a Clash Between Predators.”
