This is a common western lie about the reasons for Putin’s lack of support. If there is discontent over Ukraine, then this is because the Russian army is not yet in Kiev and the Ukrainian Nazis do not hang on the lamp posts on the avenues. And action in Syria fully understood and supported - better kill terrorists on foreign soil, then see them in Russia. Dissatisfaction is completely due to internal problems. The problems of ordinary capitalism. Oh, protesters! I forgot about protesters. Bunch of fricks, supported by less then 2% of most stupid (because lots oif them too young) population.
Putin's popularity grows when he does at least something or at least says something, that gives the impression that he wants to return socialism. And it falls when people are realise that this puppet of Das Capital behaves as it should
As I recall, the US sprung the Maidan Coup when Russia was hosting the Winter Olympics. And so we're told by US Imperialists, Putin wanted to invade Ukraine and retake Crimea exactly at a time when they went through those costs and responsibilities looking for good PR to promote tourism.

What I learned from a few who were from the Eastern Donbass that I didn't know before was that Ukraine was always a divided nation as soon as the Soviet overstructure collapsed and....like so many other regions of eastern Europe: fascist nationalists were looking to reignite the flames of sectarianism....the most notable example was the US/Euro supported collapse of Yugoslavia after the Soviet Union collapsed and a "moderate" communist ally was no longer needed!

Russia had already declared when Yeltsin was still alive, that Crimea was a redline because of its Navy and military bases located there. I've never given a crap about whether or not the rushed referendum was legit or not, because with a clear Russian majority, the last thiing Crimeans would accept would be joining an independent bankrupt Ukraine that cut pension payments and declared they were banning the Russian language as well!

Similar situation in the Donbass, where the greatest grievance...as a couple of friends have told me was that one oligarch (Rinat Akhmetov) the richest man in the independent nation of Ukraine owned almost everything...the coal mines, the steel mills,the manufacturing that he bought up on the cheap when everybody went capitalist. So, to my pro-Russian/anti-Kiev friends, life in the east Ukraine got much worse just as it did in the Galacian west! The only difference for those working in the mines and the mills, was that wages declined, the unions were banned, while one man owned all of the production....instead of the communist state. And that's a big reason why most eastern Ukrainians consider themselves communists today, and language aside, want nothing to do with the Svoboda, Pravy Sektor and other Kievan Nazis who were paid to invade and try to retake Donetsk and Lugansk and are still trying today, as artillery and ,mortar attacks are still fired at them after a supposed ceasefire was agreed to!

Worth noting that today, a majority of younger, working age Ukrainians have left home and are working...or looking for work elsewhere. Only difference being that most East Ukrainians crossed into Russia looking for work, while those in the west, went to Poland, Germany, England and France. So, they have that much in common!

It is likely today that...even if this moderate...Zelensky is able to hold on and exert any power over the Nazis that dominate parliament and receive most of the support from the billionaire oligarchs, the eastern provinces will never rejoin Ukraine voluntarily without a fight! So, by continuing the war, Trump is just trying to outdo Obama, who cut off arms sales because of war crimes committed or blamed on to the Nazi militias...who have been the only group dedicated to fighting to invade the east...and no doubt try to ethnically cleanse out the population!

In the end, like so many geopolitical quagmires that the US has started around the world,and is still mired in, the Ukraine will never improve until they give up on their wars and get to work on developing an economy, rather than continue on as the poorest country in Europe.

December 11, 1981 during the civil war in El Salvador, there was a "Massacre in Mosote." The soldiers of the anti-communist "death squads" of the far-right junta, trained and armed with the US Army, tortured, raped, and then killed more than a thousand civilians in the village of Mosote, including 300 children.
The organizer of the death squads, the anti-communist, nationalist D’Oubusson subsequently did not bear any responsibility for the Mosote massacre. His neo-fascist battalions and the ARENA party were funded by the US establishment, including future presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The Dutch East India Company is the most rich company in the history Голландская Ост-Индская компания - самая дорогая компания в истории
in its heyday, its cost in terms of modern money would be astronomical $ 7.4 trillion
These are the origins of the current Western “proper capitalism”, the initial accumulation of capital based on the most brutal exploitation and plunder of India, Africa, North and South America, and not on jobses, masks and other tales from the “garage selfie makers”.

Germany considers the introduction of US sanctions against the Nord Stream gas line unacceptable, since this is an attempt to influence the "autonomous decisions of Europe," said the German Foreign Minister.
Very funny. The entire military personnel of the United States bases laughed at the joke about the autonomous decisions of Europe.

In a discussions the thought came up, that "capitalism has changed a lot since Marx."

I will comment, perhaps, this idea is more detailed. Of course, it has changed. The only question is “how exactly” and “why.” From my point of view, these changes went through four stages.

1. The pre-monopoly competitive capitalism of the time of Marx has grown into monopolistic imperialism. The very “free competition" to which the libertarians are still praying to has disappeared. Corporations have grown together with governments, a redivision of the world has begun in the interests of corporations. This change was reflected by Lenin in his book "Imperialism as the highest form of capitalism." This change led to two world wars and a whole chain of local ones.

2. After the Second World War, the socialist bloc became a real force influencing the alignment in the world. The possibility of a revolution, supported by the power of propaganda and the army of the USSR, forced the capitalists of Western Europe and North America to bribe their workers. The era of "social states" has begun.

3. But capitalism and "sociality" are incompatible. The costs are too high. Capitalist corporations cannot work under such conditions. The rate of profit is falling rapidly and too much money needs to be poured into the infrastructure. To provide "freebies" for all kinds of ... workers, corporations have to pay very high taxes to the detriment of their income. Therefore, in the 70s, Western capitalism came close to bankruptcy. The most striking symptom of this was the "oil crisis."

The solution was found in bringing production to third world countries. Now the “sociality” of Western states was financed by super-cheap Asian, South American and African labor. The era of "globalization" has begun.

4. Towards the end of the 20th century, several events took place at once:

- Unable to withstand external pressure and accumulated internal treason of corrupted elite, the Soviet block collapsed. The “red threat" has disappeared, and therefore the factor that forces Western capital to put up with a lower rate of return for the sake of appeasing its population. The king of the Netherlands announced the end of the era of social states and that each is for itself. Coagulation of social programs began in Europe and the USA.

- The large countries of the third world, pumped up on Western technologies and investments, began to demand greater independence. And the standard of living that had grown there led to the fact that now the work of asians is already not so cheap. So again, we have reduction the rate of profit.

- The world has shrunk. There are no more regions left on earth where western capital could dump costs and social tension from their countries. The period of extensive growth is over, but capitalism does not know other way. A split is brewing in the "Western world" - if earlier Europeans and Americans exploited the periphery shoulder to shoulder and everyone have their share, now it is no longer enough. Hence the sharp cooling of relations between the US and the EU, hence the all kind of Brexits in the EU. Everyone begins to pull the blanket over themselves.

- The habit (need) of the Western world to take and not to give up has led to the fact that external and internal debts in the countries of the "golden billion" have become absolutely transcendent and seriously hinder the economy.

The world is returning to the pre-Soviet stage of imperialism, but in a more neglected state. Ahead are attempts to return production back to state borders (Trump's election by the American elite is just about that). Tightening the exploitation of one’s own population by Western countries in order to maintain profit margins and compete with Asians. The great war for the redistribution of markets and access to resources.

Marx and Lenin look at us from above with irony, as if to say: "capitalism, of course, has changed. But it has changed exactly as we predicted."

The new authorities in Bolivia will issue an arrest warrant for former president Evo Morales. He is accused of incitement to rebellion, reports Reuters.
Democracy is so predictable. Only she has the right to determine where the protest, and where the rebellion.

“The defense technology obtained in recent tests will allow us to develop strategic weapons that allow Korea to finally solve the task of deterring the United States ...” - said the General Staff of North Korea.
How cynical it is to restrain democracy. And illegal, of course.
