Comrade, it is quite clear that you’re not acting in good faith. The text states the following:

It is particularly important for the peoples of the world to become aware of the adventurous nature of Washington’s policy and recall the experience of broad anti-war movements. The unfolding of such a movement would ensure solidarity with the peace-loving peoples of Russia and Ukraine and protect their right to independent development. (…) In the situation when the Russian Federation has taken a stand in defense of the people of Donbass, it is necessary to render every possible assistance to refugees and the civilian population of the DPR and LPR.

The fact that he uses the terms “demilitarization” and “denazification” is a moot point. This is what was alleged to protect Donetsk and Lugansk, and I don’t believe any communist would oppose to this. What I find it strange is to believe that demilitarization involves waging a military invasion. Like I previously said, arming/bombing for peace is as logical as fucking for virginity. It is jingoistic nonsense such as “si vis pacem para bellum”.

Also, the three members of the CPRF were quite clear in their opposition to the invasion. Their position is quite public. Again, you can argue that they’re breaking the ranks of the Party, but this is a serious allegation and I hope you have evidence to back this up if you choose this way.

If you don’t accuse them of breaking the democratic centralism of the Party, then you must read the text under the assumption that what they’re telling you is the case. They are telling you that their posture is “to become a shield for the Donbas, not for bombing Kiev”, as Comrade Matveyev said.

I’d like to point out that you’re also mistaken when you said

AES countries support Russia. Just look to the positions of North Korea, Cuba, China, Bolivia, and Venezuela.

…as it has already be shown in the map of my previous answer. However, you never managed to reckon your mistake. Instead, you try to insult me, asking if I’d read the text that I posted in a clear rhetorical maneuver to avoid taking any of my points seriously. Do you really approach people to talk with this kind of posture? Is this kind of behavior accepted in the Party you belong? Comrade, I don’t believe you act like this in your day-to-day life or at your workplace, so I fail to understand why would you do it with a fellow coreligionnaire. I don’t know what you’re trying to accomplish here, however I won’t waste more of our time if this is to approached without honesty and good faith. Comrade, if you want to talk in private, you’re always invited. Otherwise, I wish you a good night.

Yes, comrade, I read it and I try to stay up-to-date with their discussion, because I believe in the Party. Various other Communist Parties also adopted the same position of being anti-war, which is quite a strong tradition in our movement.

Also, check what Mikhail Matveyev, Oleg Smolin, and Vyacheslav Markhaev said. Those three are MPs from CPRF and could state more than enough the position of the Party. Well, unless you’re accusing them of breaking the democratic centralism of the Party… but, if this is the case, I believe you should give us quite an amount of evidence, because this is a very serious allegation.

The CPRF is against a war in Ukraine. 3 MPs from CPRF said quite clearly they’re against the invasion. They voted to protect Donetsk and Lugansk, not to bomb Kiev.

I don’t know how can you say that United Russia’s project is part of a popular front. It really is a mystery to me how anyone could be in favor of a war where almost every single casualty is going to be of a child of the working class. What the working class has to gain from this war? For almost every soldier, all they can manage to do is to return alive to their families. Nothing more. Does this war promotes the international solidarity of the working class? No, it doesn’t. On the contrary, this is promoting nationalist jingoism everywhere and it is going to make Ukraine’s political landscape even worse. More anti-communism, more “Oriental menace” propaganda…

Another thing: Neither China nor Cuba supported Russia in the invasion. They abstained from voting to condone Russia. The countries that voted against condoning Russia (and thus supporting Russia’s position) are Belarus, Eritrea, North Korea, and Syria.

True, comrade. I simply fail to understand how someone could believe in arming for peace. It is as logical as fucking for virginity.

I don’t understand why some communists insist in “taking sides” in a fratricidal war between an oligarch backed regime against the most anti-communist (and pro-Nazi) State in Europe. I thought that we, as a political community, decided this centuries ago when adopted as stanza of our hymn:

“The kings make us drunk with their fumes,<br> Peace among ourselves, war to the tyrants!<br> Let the armies go on strike,<br> Guns in the air, and break ranks<br> If these cannibals insist<br> On making heroes of us,<br> Soon they will know our bullets<br> Are for our own generals”

Our bullets are both for Putin and Zelensky.

I find it hard to understand why the policies so generically described. Increase wages, social services and worker’s rights. OK. However, this is not very specific and it’s exactly the same proposed for decades since the Comintern decided that this should be the case.

I believe that Jeremy Corbyn’s [Labour] Manifesto (2019) was the best program of the last decade in this aspect, not because it is a nice piece of Marxist literature (it isn’t), but it brings to public debate some concrete policies such as Inclusive Ownership Funds and Basic Income.

I changed from Gmail to Protonmail and never looked back. It’s a great service, even for the free account… it’s so good that I’m even considering paying for the upgraded services when I get the budget to do so. I’m not in a hurry because I got a really good lifetime deal on pCloud for (safe) cloud storage.

That’s it, lads! ROCK AND STONE!

Julia. It’s the most elegant language for computational mathematics and very pleasing to use.
