Ukraine: Russian Communist party supports authorities' move to 'end Nazi provocateurs'

In a surprise move, chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, GA Zyuganov, has in a statement, has said that the people of Ukraine "should not be a victim of world capital and oligarchic clans", supporting President Putin, without naming him, for "forcing Nazi provocateurs" of Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) and the Luhansk People's Republic (LNR) of Ukraine "to peace."
After the appeal of the leadership of the DPR and LPR, the Russian authorities launched a military-political operation aimed at forcing Nazi provocateurs to peace. The steps taken are intended to guarantee peace in the Donbas and secure Russia from increasingly acute threats from the United States and NATO.
The militarization of Eastern Europe after the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact is evident. The aggressive intentions of Washington were clearly realized in the process of the destruction of Yugoslavia. The goals of the US authorities and their NATO satellites to enslave Ukraine should not be realized. These aggressive plans pose critical threats to Russia's security. At the same time, they fundamentally contradict the interests of the Ukrainian people.
The United States is increasing its competitive capabilities in the global world at any cost. They are not embarrassed by the fact that sanctions against Russia, the torpedoing of Nord Stream 2 and the threat of war in Europe lead to heavy economic losses for the eurozone countries. Today it is especially important for the peoples of the world to realize the adventurism of Washington's policy and to remember the experience of the broad anti-war movement. The deployment of such a movement would ensure solidarity with the peace-loving peoples of Russia and Ukraine and protect their rights to their own development.
The Communist Party of the Russian Federation proceeds from the need to dismantle the results of many years of banderization of Ukraine. The real policy on its territory is largely dictated by rabid nationalists. They terrorize the Ukrainian people and impose an aggressive political course on the authorities. “Caving in” under this pressure, Zelensky betrayed the interests of his fellow citizens, who elected him president of peace in the Donbass and good neighborliness with Russia.
In conditions when the Russian Federation stood up for the citizens of Donbass, it is necessary to provide all possible assistance to refugees and civilians of the DPR and LPR. We call on the entire society to provide them with the necessary assistance and support.
The pressing imperative of the time was to force the Kiev provocateurs to peace and to curb the aggressiveness of NATO. Only the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine will ensure sustainable security for the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and all of Europe. In the struggle for peace and preventing the revival of fascism, we consider it important to widely use the methods of people's diplomacy and humanitarian cooperation.
In strategic terms, the position of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation is well known: the main guarantee of peace, creation and development is the movement along the path of social progress and social justice, along the path of socialism.



There is need to distinguish between RT-PCR positives and clinical cases of Covid-19

Insisting on the need to distinguish between RT-PCR positives and clinical cases of Covid-19, an open letter by 20 doctors and medical professionals: *** Firstly the virus has gone through the Indian population enough and is now well established as an endemic infection which shall keep causing flu like illness in only few people as most will not even develop severe symptoms. The ICMR had already called for the suspension of testing anyone not having any symptoms (Jan 2022). Children have been shown to tackle the virus much easier than adults. Children also do not pass Covid infection to others that easily as adults do to children. Schools have opened and no single outbreak or incidences of severe disease have been documented. Therefore healthy children must not be tested for Covid anymore unless the treating doctor in hospitalised cases requires it. Calling people (children or adults) with RT-PCR positive report as “cases” is faulty. A “case” is a person who has disease and presents wi

Musician and follower of Dr Ambedkar? A top voilinist has this rare combination!

Some time back, a human rights defender, Vidya Bhushan Rawat, who frequently writes for Counterview, forwarded to me a video interview with Guru Prabhakar Dhakade, calling him one of India's well known violinists.  Dhakade is based in Nagpur and has devoted his life for the Hindustani classical music. A number of his disciples have now been part of Hindi cinema world in Mumbai, says Rawat. He has performed live in various parts of the country as well as abroad. What however attracted me was Dhakade's assertions in video about Dr BR Ambedkar, India's undisputed Dalit icon. Recorded several years back at his residence and music school in Nagpur, Dhakade not only speaks candidly about issues he faced, but that he is a believer in Dr Ambedkar's philosophy. It is in this context that Dhakade narrates his problems, even as stating that he is determined to achieve his goal. A violinist and a follower of Ambedkar? This was new to me. Rarely do musicians are found to take a

Define Dalit not by caste but action, belief; include all who oppose inequality

By Ajaz Ashraf* Dalit rights leader Martin Macwan’s endeavour has been to redefine the term Dalit and delink it from caste, best exemplified by the headline to this interview. An academician of repute, he financed his studies by working as wage labour. During his college days, he joined a group of non-Dalit intellectuals, comprising a professor each from the Christian, Parsi, Muslim and upper caste Hindu communities, to work with Dalits. Their work invited a backlash. On 25 January 1986, the reactionary landlords of the Darbar community in Golana village, Anand district, gunned down four of his colleagues, wounded another 18 and set houses on fire. This prompted Macwan to establish the Navsarjan Trust, which aims to skill Dalits and expand their consciousness regarding the systemic oppression of which they are principal victims. On 25 January 2002, on the anniversary of the Golana massacre , he led a march through rural Gujarat. His experience of the march had him write a book wherein
