Kievan anarchist’s confession

The political reason for the fall of the power of the Yanukovych «family» was the breaching of obligations by the authorities to the classes. Parliament adopts a budget, keeping in mind the criticism and the wishes of groups of influence. The government secretly steals, but does not kill the poor. The authorities can ignore or press the protest, but torture and murder in relation to the dissenters should not be used. In January 2014, the government violated all these rules and lost «legitimacy» in the eyes of the people.

There are no oligarchs

In Ukraine we often hear the words «oligarchs» or «oligarchy». It refers to any bigwigs who have gained power and influence. Oligarchs rule, and even grandmas on the bench know it. Oligarchs make a profit. Oligarchs do evil. So what does «oligarchy» mean?

Why leftists can’t support Novorossia?

Novorossia is a non-class project: the workers in it are fighting against other workers, and not against the capitalists. The workers are not fighting under the leadership of the workers’ party, but under the leadership of the Moscow oligarchs and Russian fascists. Novorossia is an anti-humanistic project: its agents deny the diversity of religions and life-styles, any right of an unarmed person.

Anarchism and war

Due to the circumstances, the anarchists were not only permissible, but it was also necessary to join the ranks of the armed formations. Not to «defend the territorial integrity», «take revenge» or «cut Russians», but in order to protect the freedom that remained in Ukraine, and return it to where it was expelled by the aggressors.

О восприятии фашизма / Über die Wahrnehmung des Faschismus

Deutsche Version У западных наблюдателей, особенно у левых, часто вызывала возмущение нацистская символика на “общенародных” протестах в Украине. Именно благодаря этому миф о “фашистском путче” и “хунте” и оказался столь живучим. Но эта толерантность...

Das „Gespenst“ des Kommunismus oder Mozgovoj als Che Guevara für Tolkienisten

Einige Stunden nach dem Tod von Mozgovoj hatte ich versprochen, eine Kolumne „Mozgovoj ist kein Che Guevara, sondern ein missglückter Kadyrov“ zu schreiben. Das aber habe ich letztlich nicht getan. Weil ich Zweifel an der Ausgangsthese hatte. „Che Guevara“ und „Kadyrov“ sollten nicht gegenübergestellt werden. Natürlich versteht es sich von selbst, dass, wenn der reale, historische Che Guevara zugrunde gelegt wird, Mozgovoj mit ihm dann nur die Gemeinsamkeit hat, dass beide eine Waffe in der Hand gehalten und die USA nicht geliebt haben.

‘Novorossiya’s’ ‘Leftist’ Friends

The annexation of Crimea, the “Novorossiya” project, and the fight against the “Kyiv junta” are not supported in Russia alone. There are political forces around the world, both marginal and relatively respectable, which voice their support for the separatists in the Donbass. At times, activists themselves travel to the war zone as volunteers, but they mostly hold demonstrations in support of the separatist republics and pressure their governments to renounce their support for Ukraine and “stop the aggression against Russia.”
