Top reads on the Ukraine conflict, war and imperialism

Were we to believe the war propaganda of the western imperialists, we would have to conclude that the current crisis in Ukraine began on 24 February 2022, when Putin ordered Russian troops to enter Ukraine. This is a reactionary imperialist war that we oppose, but our opposition has nothing to do with the hypocritical denunciations of the West. In fact, the crisis has a long background in which western imperialism has played an aggressive role – in Ukraine and throughout Eastern Europe.


Greetings to Esteban Volkov at 96: lifelong defender of Trotsky’s legacy

Today is the birthday of the grandson of Leon Trotsky, Esteban Volkov. Over the course of his life, Volkov has fought to preserve the historical truth about Trotsky’s life and work, against the smears of the Stalinists and bourgeois historians. In particular, Volkov has preserved a unique monument to Trotsky’s legacy: the Leon Trotsky House Museum in Coyoacán, Mexico, which was once home to Volkov and his grandparents, Natalia Sedova and Leon Trotsky. On the occasion of his birthday, the International Marxist Tendency would like to send revolutionary greetings to this lifelong champion of Trotsky’s legacy.


乌克兰:就民族问题和俄罗斯干预的若干观察

本文件于 2014 年 12 月在乌克兰的亲欧盟运动 (Euromaidan) 运动、顿涅茨克和卢甘斯克的起义以及俄罗斯吞并克里米亚之后撰写。当时,国际马克思主义趋势(International Marxism Tendency)参与发起了声援乌克兰反法西斯抵抗运动(Solidarity with Antifascist Resistance in Ukraine ,SARU)。与此同时,一些所谓的马克思主义组织向反动的乌克兰民族主义投降了。因此,为乌克兰民族问题的历史发展提供一些背景,是当下重要的任务之一。本文探究了这个民族问题的一些方面,包括布尔什维克的政策、列宁在 1922年苏联成立时的政策,以及托洛茨基在 1930 年代后期采取的立场。应结合2014 年 8 月国际马克思主义趋势世界大会通过的“乌克兰提纲”阅读。(按:本文原文公开发表于2022年2月10日。由网友energized_entity翻译发表于此。经我方发现后自行校对,重刊在此。)

Ukrayna'da Savaş. Enternasyonalist, sınıfsal bir konumlanış! IMT beyanı

Savaşın ilk zayiatı hakikattir. Bu, Rusya'nın Ukrayna'ya askeri müdahalesi için de geçerlidir. Tüm yalanlara ve savaş propagandasına rağmen, Marksistler bu çatışmanın gerçek nedenlerini analiz etmelidir. Bu çatışmayı ne tetikledi? Burada yer alan çeşitli tarafların resmi menfaat tasvirlerinin arkasında yatan asıl çıkarları nelerdir? Ama her şeyden önce bu savaşa uluslararası işçi sınıfının çıkarları açısından yaklaşmalıyız.

Xung đột ở Ukraine: liệu đây là khởi đầu của Thế chiến III?

Alan Woods (chủ bút trang marxist.com) cung cấp một cập nhật về tình hình ở Ukraine. Kể từ khi cuộc xâm lược của Nga, chiếc đập chắn tuyên truyền đã được các phương tiện truyền thông Phương Tây bơm xả, góp phần vào bầu không khí điên loạn tột cùng, với những tờ báo giờ đây la hét thất thanh về mối đe dọa của Thế chiến III. Giữa lúc ấy, các lãnh đạo đế quốc tiếp tục thể hiện sự đạo đức giả đáng ghê tởm khi họ kết tội Putin ‘vi phạm chủ quyền quốc gia của Ukraine’, họ chưa từng bao giờ ngăn chặn chiến tranh nhằm theo đuổi lợi ích của riêng mình trong quá khứ. Những người Marxist phải bác bỏ thông điệp yếm thế ‘yêu nước’ và ‘đoàn kết dân tộc’, khi chúng ta tiếp tục phản đối giai cấp thống trị chính của chúng ta ở mọi quốc gia.
