Anniversary of the events of Black October 1993


21 years ago, on 3 - 4 October 1993, in our country there was a counter-revolutionary military coup, which resulted in the big bourgeoisie seizing power, led by Boris Yeltsin.

The culmination of events began with the shooting on October 4, 1993 from tanks outside the Supreme Soviet in Moscow and the subsequent "cleansing" (destruction) of its defenders and supporters of Soviet power.

"Black October" 1993 is a crime without a statute of limitations!

Eternal memory to the fallen in the struggle for Soviet power in October 1993!

We do not forget, we do not forgive!

INFORMATION ABOUT ALEXANDER GERASIMOV
To all our comrades who were interested in the health of former political prisoner ("Odessa case") Sasha Gerasimov, we can finally announce the good news transmitted from Ukraine by comrade A.A. Mayevsky.
On August 22, Sasha was finally released from the hospital. He underwent several operations.
We recall Alexander Gerasimov was injured by fire in the Odessa House of Trade Unions on 2 May this year.
For another two weeks he will receive out-patient treatment, but more importantly, that he, according to his comrades, he said, feels more or less normal again.
We wish Sasha a speedy and complete recovery!
==========================
DONBASS BETWEEN TWO FIRES
Donbass self-defence forces are defending their homeland from the advancing forces of the neo-fascist regime in Kiev. The Kiev regime, in turn, is trying to capture a region rich in natural resources and industry. Shale gas in the interior of the region is needed not only by Kiev oligarchs, but by their patrons in the West. Thus, the defence of Donbass from the Kiev punitive troops is also a defensive war against the Western imperialists.
The Donbass uprising began not just as a national liberation uprising - in defense of the right to speak and write in their native Russian language. It was conceived at the monuments to Lenin, which the locals were protecting from Nazi-vandals. The founders of the Republic of Donetsk, beginning with P. Gubaryov, talked about plans to build a "social" state, which was opposed to the former, Ukrainian oligarchic state. "A republic without oligarchy and corruption" - was the slogan of the rebels. Thus, the People's Liberation component is closely intertwined with the struggle for social liberation. The uprising gained anti-capitalist overtones.
Such aspirations by the Donbass rebels caused alarm not only among Ukrainian oligarchs, but also among their "colleagues" in Russia. An uprising in Donbass was profitable for Russian capitalists, but only up to a point – so long as it did not get back on track towards smashing the capitalist system. If the Kiev fascist authorities simply want to crush the rebels by military force, the Russian capitalists, including those sitting in bureaucratic armchairs, are not averse to "Donbass in their own arms." Military specialists and civilian coordinators along with volunteers from Russia arrived into the region, arriving to "assist", playing the role of the "Trojan horse". To substitute social, anti-capitalist protest with exclusively pro-Russian sentiment - that is their unspoken task.
Examples of when originally a "red" protest was replaced by tasks not going beyond the capitalist system, have already taken place in the 1990s on the spaces of the destroyed USSR. In Transnistria occurred bourgeoisification of the authorities, in South Ossetia the Communists lost power, and in Tajikistan, the leader of the "reds" S. Safarov was murdered. In all these regions, the insurgent people with the support from Russia managed to defend their republics from the onset of external enemies, but then bourgeois leaders came to power.
Similar negative trends are being observed today in the Donbas. While the rank and file self-defence forces shed blood on the front, the bourgeoisie is stealing power. One after another, there are draft constitutions of the republics of Donbass, designed to consolidate the capitalist construction of new public entities. In them read not only concessions to the petty bourgeoisie, but also explicit promises of immunity to big capital. If these drafts are implemented, one will have to forget about republics with no oligarchy and corruption, and in Donbass, a Russian version of "wild" capitalism will be replayed over again.
Ordinary freedom fighters of Donbass will come to an understanding of the struggle between two tendencies - progressive and reactionary. A statement by one of the Donetsk volunteers is widely known: "If we raise the red flag, we will win this war. Because this banner symbolizes the simple, clear idea of giving the answers to almost all questions of the present day. Only this idea is capable of consolidating society to fight a common enemy and emerging internal enemy, which now sees how tomorrow it will divide our land, our factories, our factories, our mines."
In such internal struggle during civil war there is nothing new. Similarly, the Spanish anti-fascists in the 1930s, fighting against Franco at the front, were forced to fight against internal traitors. Similarly, the Greek communists after the expulsion of the German occupiers in 1944 were forced to turn to guerrilla struggle against their by then "own", Greek reactionaries, supported by the imperialists.
Under these conditions, the support that Russian communists will be able to provide the Donbass Communists becomes essential. We are talking about material and moral support. In conditions of the civil war going on now in Donbass, reconstruction of the whole of the left is underway. Opportunists lurk in the corners, but the real communists engage in the battle for their native land. The "reformatting" the Donbass leftist movement is expected, with the emergence of new organizations and structures.
***
But at the same time, the events in the Donbass have become a real test and "checking for lice" of the Russian left-wing movement. Among a significant number of "left-wing bloggers" and "activists" have come a well-proportioned chorus of (or howling) opportunists, who began trying to "prove" that in Donbas a "wrong" revolt is taking place, that there everything has been captured by nationalists (a variant: Putinists), and in general, like in the movies, "all is lost, the plaster has been removed, and the client leaves." We have a paradoxical situation: some "leftists" have withdrawn their support from the Donbass uprising, and then when because of this appears a growing right-wing, the "leftists" joyfully shout: So you see, the right wing are winning ...
How and why did such a position arise on part of the Russian "leftists"? In fact, everything is very simple: they became frightened. Frightened of open rebellion. Philistines who labouring in the leftist movement, are stalling the future socialist revolution for the indefinite future. Even if Lenin suddenly resurrected and started a new October Revolution, these cowardly philistines would still say that it is "wrong Lenin," and that he did not wake up at the right time, that it was "not that same October Revolution" ... Anything, if only by simply not taking part in events, which "could finish off the system at the root." And in the case of Donbass, the Philistines are afraid: that if they supported the rebels, then they would immediately have to offer to go to Donbass themselves. Therefore, they say that the uprising is wrong, etc. All to justify their philistinism. Although one does not have to go there necessarily, if one supports Donbass, especially if you have no military experience! You can at least go out on a picket in support of the Donbass communists, and not simply write on the Internet defeatist sayings in the style of "all is lost, nothing will come of it ...". But the cowardly Philistines will never admit their cowardice.
However, we have already devoted too much time to the Philistines- opportunists!
Communists loyal to the principles of proletarian internationalism and help to the fraternal Soviet people, are today at the forefront of supporting the uprising of Donbass. Bolsheviks of the AUCPB - and those that are now in the Ukraine, and those in Russia –are with all their might assisting the Donbass rebels. Today is too early to talk about all forms of assistance – in order not to harm those who are fighting, and those who work under the condtions of the neo-fascist regime in Kiev in Ukraine. But history will put everything in its place.
"Creation’s wisdom is in their boldness O blessed Falcon! You were defeated and died pursuing your dream of freedom, of flying skyward. Yours is the future – the blood you spilled, like sparks of fire, will light the darkness of grim existence igniting hearts of countless many with thirst for living "(Maxim Gorky “Song of the Falcon”)

THE SITUATION ON THE FRONTS OF THE DNI AND LC AS OF AUGUST 25, 2014

The offensive by the Kiev junta towards Donetsk from the north has almost ceased. The attack on Lugansk and attempts to surround it by the forces of the Ukrainian army have also failed. Thus, the general offensive Kiev security forces which began July 1 to destroy New Russia is now bogged down. Key defeats were suffered by the junta around the area of Shakhtyorsky and Krasny Luch, then mired in bloody battles around Ilovaiskaya and Yasinovataya.
According to plans, on the night of August 24, the army forces of the DNR moved over to a large-scale offensive in the direction of Donetsk - Granitnoye.
During the fighting, self-defence forces in Donbass liberated local settlements - Novodvornoe, Agronomicheskoye, Novokaterinovka, Osykovo, Klenovka, Stroyitel, Leninskoye. The DNR army during the offensive completed blocked a powerful punitive junta group in the area of settlements Voykovsky, Kuteynikova, Blagodatnoye, Alekseevskoye, Uspenka and Ulyanovsk. Up to five thousand troops with weapons and military equipment were surrounded. Further plans are being made to complete the rout of the surrounded groups.
During the counterattack, self defence forces managed to destroy more than 150 Ukrainian military "Smerch" battery systems (4 pcs.), 12 "Grad" units, 17 tanks, more than 30 armoured vehicles and around 50 ammunition vehicles with.
Warehouses have been captured, which store large amounts of ammunition, materiel, food, and transportation vehicles. The Telmanovo settlement was liberated and the road to Novoazovsk opened.
In August, the "Prizrak" brigade units under the overall command of Alexei Brain liberated 14 settlements in the Lugansk and Donetsk people's republics. 6 more have been surrounded by the self defence forces.
LPR self defence forces liberated the villages of Belaya Gora and Borovskoye, then advanced towards Severodonetskoye and Lisichanskiy, arriving at the approaches to these towns captured by the enemy a few weeks earlier, then attacked the enemy at Novoazovskiy. The town of Schastya was liberated from the junta army (LPR). Under the control of self defence forces of the LPR are checkpoints on the border with the Russian Federation "Dolzhansky" and "Izvarino."
In the Kharkiv region (proclaimed on April 7 as the Kharkiv People's Republic), are active guerrilla groups fighting against the troops of the Kiev junta.
=======================================



AUGUST 15, DPRK NATIONAL LIBERATION DAY
The struggle of the Korean people against the Japanese regular troops during the occupation of Korea lasted almost half a century, was very difficult and unequal. The Japanese army was well supplied with provisions and all the necessary military equipment. The Korean guerrilla detachments were formed by the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and led by him. They acquired their own weapons in armed attacks on Japanese military forces and guerrillas were given provisions supplied by locals fully supportting the struggle of guerrilla groups. The best military fort, which the KPRA (Korean People's Revolutionary Army) was based on in their fight against the Japanese, was the region of the mountains of Paektu. It was a created by very nature itself into an impregnable fortress, favorable for the defense of the revolutionary army and unfavorable to enemy attacks. This area of Korea is characterized by strong Korean anti-Japanese sentiments in the population. The Paektusan guerrilla camp was a reliable mass base of the revolution. From here, Kim Il Sung organized the raid operations on the territory of Korea with large forces. In December, 1938 in unprecedented cold with little or no food, sleep and rest, leaving the environment, the soldiers of the KPRA had to make a forced march, which lasted 100 days. This hike is carried out under the command of Kim Il-Sung, went down in history under the name of the anti-Japanese "Arduous March".
On August 8, 1945 the Soviet Union, performing the adopted at Teheran and Yalta conferences commitments, announced war with Japan.
On the night of 8 August 9, the 1.5 million-strong Soviet Red Army dealt a crushing blow to the land armed forces of Japan. The 10 million-strong Kwantung Army was defeated.
On August 9, Commander Kim Il Sung gave all units of the KPRA orders for a general offensive.
August 14, in his bomb shelter, the Emperor of Japan convened meeting of the government and the high command of the army and navy, which in spite of military opposition, the emperor offered a draft of his rescript of unconditional surrender of the Japanese armed forces under the terms of the Potsdam Declaration.
The day 15 of August in Korea became the day of national liberation. The exhausting fierce struggle for the liberation of the Korean nation from Japanese slavery ended in a triumphant victory thanks to the high patriotism of the Korean population, faith in their leader and military genius of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung.
In honour of this momentous day - August 15, 1945 - in the centre of Pyongyang was erected a beautiful creation of architecture – The Triumphal Arch of Victory

FURTHER PROMOTION OF THE MILITARY STRUCTURE OF NATO TO THE BORDERS RUSSIA
Documents of the Central Committee of the AUCPB
Summary of the main outcomes of the NATO summit in UK
On September 4-5 in Newport (Wales, UK) an extraordinary summit of NATO was held, which was attended by the Heads of State and Governments of the 28 member countries of the alliance, as well as representatives of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Ukraine and others.
The central theme of the summit was to discuss the situation in Ukraine during the so-called anti-terrorist (punitive) operations in the South-East of Ukraine and Russia's position on the issue.
The summit was preceded by are widely deployed in the world and Ukrainian media propaganda campaign about the beginning of the "Russian aggression against Ukraine," which forced the president of Ukraine Poroshenko to cancel a planned visit to Turkey and on 28 August call an emergency meeting of the National Security Council (the Council of National Security and Defence) of Ukraine in connection with an "invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine." Following the meeting of the National Security Council, Prime Minister Yatsenyuk said that the government had introduced a bill to parliament to abolish the non-aligned status of Ukraine and the resumption of the policy of Ukraine's membership in NATO. Yatsenyuk also said that Ukraine needs a new military doctrine, in which Russia will be called an aggressor country.
The ruling Bandera-fascist regime in Ukraine, fully controlled by the West (USA-NATO) does not want to admit the obvious: the punitive operation against the insurgent people of Donbass is failing, the Ukrainian army is demoralized, disintegrating and unravelling in the face of the self defence force - defending their homeland, defending the right of people Donbass speak in their native Russian language, the right to the fraternal friendship between the Russian and Ukrainian peoples and will not accept any national-fascist ideology and glorification of Bandera – who have crossed over to determined offensive and liberating the punished cities and towns of the Donbass. The rulers of Ukraine and the media under their control immediately renamed the offensive by the self defence forces a "Russian invasion of Ukraine."
It is against the backdrop of a fictional "Russian aggression in Ukraine" which the NATO summit passed.
At a meeting with journalists on the eve of the summit, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that NATO plans to form a qualitatively new rapid reaction force, "Now we have significantly improved the readiness of our forces to respond. We will develop what I call the best part of our response forces. This will force a very high degree of combat readiness, capable of deployment in a very short period of time." Rasmussen warned that the unit will be present in Eastern Europe for so long as necessary. "Not because NATO wants to defend someone, but because the threat has become more urgent and tangible. We will do what we must, for the protection of our alliance "- he explained.
Speaking at the opening of the NATO summit, Rasmussen accused Moscow of the fact that it continues to destabilize the situation in the east of Ukraine.
The NATO summit confirmed "willingness to provide collective defence of all Allies from the West Coast of the United States to the eastern borders of the alliance." "We continue to call on Russia to withdraw its troops from the border of Ukraine, to stop the flow of weapons and fighters to Ukraine, to stop supporting armed militants in Ukraine and to engage in the constructive political process" - this how NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen summed up the outcome of the summit, as always shifting responsibility of blame on others and once again accusing Russia of events taking place in Ukraine, trained, funded, inspired and unleashed by the imperialists of US-NATO to commit aggression against Russia towards its capture, crushing and conquest.
The declaration adopted at the summit, stated that NATO "is committed to cooperation with Russia and the development of constructive relations with it," but this is are common words. In reality, NATO upheld its earlier decision to suspend all civil and military cooperation and alliance with Russia, while stressing that political channels "remain open", meaning by "political channels" general conversations, covering the further advancement of the alliance towards the borders of Russia.
In addition, the declaration states that NATO will be engaged in the study of the new "hybrid methods of warfare," which, according to officials of the alliance, Russia has used in Ukraine. We need to ensure an effective response by NATO to specific challenges presented by threats of hybrid warfare, when a wide range of military and sabotage operations are used by military, paramilitary and civilian structures in a deeply integrated manner - notes in the final statement of the NATO summit.
Following consideration of the "Ukrainian question" NATO has made a declaration of its support for Ukraine in the face of Russia's policy of "destabilization". The alliance has pledged assistance to Ukraine to the amount of 15 million Euros.
NATO, represented by its Secretary General Rasmussen, hastened to disassociate himself from the supply of arms and military equipment to Ukraine. But, as is typical for this aggressive military organization, made it in a two-faced hypocritical manner. "NATO as an organization does not have its own weapons or military equipment - said Rasmussen. - The decision to supply belongs to individual states. In this context, NATO will not intervene in the national question of decision-making countries of the alliance about military supplies to Ukraine." That is, the question of military aid to Kiev is farmed out to the leadership of the member countries of the alliance.
Barack Obama to prove "solidarity with the Ukrainian people," promised that 200 American soldiers will take part in exercises in Ukraine. American military instructors and experts will come to Ukraine. That is, Obama announced the long-known fact of the participation of American military trainers and experts in the suppression of the anti-fascist anti-bandera uprising in the South-East of Ukraine.
The question of the admission of Ukraine into NATO was not even discussed.
What specific measures have been developed by NATO?
The summit approved a Plan of action to increase the combat readiness of the alliance. "The Action Plan is to improve the readiness of NATO and provide a visible increase in the presence of NATO in Eastern Europe" - said the secretary general of NATO. The Alliance has decided to establish a special advance team of the Rapid Reaction Force (RRF) of NATO numbering several thousand people which must be able to deploy anywhere in the world in two days. The NATO Secretary General said that he "has received signals from the Baltic countries, Poland and Romania," who would like to place these forces at home.
Rasmussen also promised that the alliance will expand the "staff and logistics infrastructure in Eastern Europe" to ensure the conditions for the operational deployment of sea, land and air forces. In addition, NATO "will now begin the regular holding of sudden maneuvers," which in the past two decades in the alliance were not observed. (It should be noted that these "exercises" on peaceful civilians were carried out during the NATO aggression against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, ...).
Rasmussen said that the measures taken to strengthen the defence are designed to convince potential aggressors that they will be up against "the entire alliance."
The UK came out with the initiative to create the "new united expeditionary rapid reaction force" for the family NATO countries before the summit. More about this was reported in the Financial Times newspaper on August 30. In these forces, in addition to the UK, will be involved, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Norway and the Netherlands. It is alleged that Canada also shows interest in participating. This force, known as the advance team of the NATO Response Force, will be made up from 4 to 10 thousand people. They should be ready to advance to the conflict zone in a matter of days. The command of these forces will carried out by the representative of Great Britain. Unofficially, these forces have been called the "spearhead" force of NATO.
NATO plans to set up the infrastructure and the headquarters of these forces, in particular, to deploy five military bases in Eastern Europe. Willingness to take these bases has been expressed by the Baltic countries, as well as Poland and Romania. At each base will be located up to 600 soldiers and heavy weapons and military equipment, including tanks and armoured personnel carriers. And all this directly on the Russian border.
The decision to sign with the NATO an agreement to deploy a rapid reaction force of the alliance on its territory on the eve of the NATO summit was taken by Sweden and Finland.
Certainty in the NATO military plans has been made by Deputy Commander of NATO in Europe, the British General Adrian Bradshaw, who stressed at a press briefing that it should be clear that "Spearhead" is intended to deter Russia. The Task Force of the highest state of readiness will include components of all branches of the armed forces - air force, navy and ground forces. In particular, the Navy will work out the whole range of full-scale war, including mine and amphibious operations, and the Air Force - strategic movement of troops. The Deputy Commander of NATO also admitted that "Spearhead" will have "not only conventional weapons." i.e. in question on the equipment of this advance team of the NATO, the RRF will have tactical nuclear weapons at its disposal, which carries a direct threat to Russia's national security, the threat of a nuclear war.
The outgoing Rasmussen officially presented to the participants of the summit, former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg as the new Secretary General of NATO. He will take up his duties on 1 October. "I'll do my best to justify their confidence in me and follow the excellent example of the alliance management - said Stoltenberg. - I look forward to the opportunity to begin working closely with all 28 member states of the Alliance and further strengthen NATO." So there are no personnel changes in senior management unit that will not change the aggressive nature of this military organization of the imperialist countries.
On the eve of the NATO summit, President Barack Obama on September 3 made a visit to Tallinn (Estonia), where he held a meeting with the leaders of the Baltic States. During the visit, Obama declared his readiness to "defend the allies." According to the president of the United States, into Ukraine had entered "combat units with Russian weapons and Russian tanks." "We need to unite in the face of Russian aggression in Ukraine."
Thus, an enemy image is formed of Russia, the image of the aggressor to justify in the face of the international community its impending aggression against Russia.
A continuous series of military exercises conducted by NATO, aim to work out the practical issues of preparing for US-NATO aggression against Russia.
Thus during the summit, from 2 to 8 September in Germany, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland there were multinational large-scale exercises, called Steadfast Javelin-II («The true spear" -ІІ). The exercise involved hundreds of military vehicles and aircraft, as well as more than two thousand soldiers. The main purpose of the manoeuvres is to prepare troops for operations around the world in case of any emergencies. The exercise participants are subdivisions of 15 countries, including 12 NATO countries - Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Italy, Romania, Slovenia, the UK and the USA, as well as Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia in the framework of NATO "Partnership for Peace."
The first part of the exercise Steadfast Javelin-I was held in the spring of 2014 in May 2014 with about six thousand troops from Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Great Britain and the United States conducting manoeuvres from 16 to 23 May, practicing rebuffing attack scenarios on Estonia.
From 9 to 20 June, in the territory of the three Baltic States there were NATO exercises under the name of Sabre Strike-2014. They involved more than 4,700 servicemen from different countries, as well as 800 pieces of military equipment.
During the NATO summit, on September 5 in Minsk a second meeting of the contact group to resolve the situation in Ukraine was held. The meeting was attended by former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, Prime Minister of the DNR Zakharchenko, head of the LPR Plotnitsky, Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov, as well as the official representative of the OSCE chairman on the settlement of the situation in Ukraine H. Tagliavini. The participants signed a ceasefire protocol 19-00 MSK on 5th of September. President of Ukraine Poroshenko announced that he had ordered the chief of the General Staff to cease fire.
But, like all previous cease-fire agreements, the agreement on a truce was immediately broken. On the night from 5.09 to 6.09, the first night after the announcement of the armistice, four residents of Donetsk were killed by shelling, according to the militia headquarters.
The Ukrainian puppet Bandera-fascist regime, is blindly carrying out the will of the United States, an continues the fratricidal conflict.
* *
The threat of war against Russia, threatening to escalate into a Third World nuclear war is increasing with each passing day.
Reigning Putin regime is feverishly trying to restore the ruined over the past quarter-century strategic defence nuclear missile potential, to strengthen the armed forces of Russia in the face of impending aggression.
But it is impossible just in a few years to restore what was destroyed over the last 2.5 decades by the treacherous leadership of Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin and then his political replacement.
This criminal anti-national policy of unilateral disarmament was carried out with one purpose - to curry favour with the American-Zionist capital ruling the world to get the right to rule, the right to personal enrichment at the expense of robbery in the course of destroying the gains of socialism and of the predatory capitalist reforms.
Only the revolutionary overthrow of the power of capital, the overthrow of the ruling Putin regime and opposing his pro-Western liberal-Zionist "opposition", and the restoration of Soviet power and socialism, the revival of the Soviet Union and the mighty Soviet armed forces can necessarily lead to victory over outgoing from the historical arena rotting world capital and his monstrous creations - US-NATO imperialism - forever put an end to wars and to secure to every nation in the world the right to freedom of peaceful development, to a decent happy life.

2. HOW WESTERN "DOCU-DRAMAS" ABOUT THE DPRK ARE BEING MADE.

http://juche007-anglo-peopleskoreafriendship.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/how-western-docu-dramas-about-dprk-are.html
A couple of years ago, during our trip to the DPRK, there was a man in our group called David Kinsella, a documentary filmmaker from Northern Ireland who has lived in Norway for the last 20 years.
What Mr. Kinsella was actually doing in the DPRK and what plans he had for his stay in that land, I already have described in my sketch "Red-red, freckled ..." (see English translation attached), so I will not repeat myself here.
And here’s what happened after.
After the Korean comrades scrutinized more closely the "portfolio" of Mr. Kinsella, including his "masterpieces" such as "Killing Girls" and "Beautiful Tragedy", he never got permission to shoot his new film in the DPRK. But it did not stop him from making another libelous piece of "work", especially since he already had some film and photo
materials taken in the DPRK during his trip as a tourist. He is hoping that they will be enough to give his future creation a certain degree of plausibility.
But in reality, his movie "The Wall", much touted as an " unprecedented film production in North Korea and Northern Ireland. A
David Kinsella film premiere 2015"
https://www.facebook.com/296500830364159/photos/a.763592873654950.1073741829.296500830364159/781156215231949/?type=1&permPage=1) was filmed in the most neglected and impoverished ghettos of Belfast, with South Korean actress Yuna Shin (http://www.castingcallpro.com/uk/view.php?uid=296997 ), invited from London and starring as his fictional North Korean Yun
Hee.
There are a few pictures of his future "masterpiece" (in the
attachment), and the first lines of the so-called "script" which Kinsella already started to pen back in Pyongyang (in between countless pints of beer at the hotel). His co-writer, Dutchman Klaas Bense, as far as I know, has never even visited the DPRK.
Kinsella had no qualms about the lie that the shooting of his film took place in North Korea, where men supposedly even "blocked the main street in Pyongyang early in the morning" for the shoot.
But then he blurts out the truth on his Facebook page: "Location scouting in Belfast and casting for "The WALL" We turn Belfast into "North Korea"
(https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152292067955039&set=pb.573835038.-2207520000.1409390997.&type=3&theatre).
Funds for his trip to the DPRK and for production costs were provided
by the Norwegian Film Institute, that is, a public institution of that Scandinavian country.
According to Kinsella, it is "the second film of my trilogy on EVIL" (in capital letters, as in the original).
Do we need to say more, in order to understand what he is being paid for?
In The Wall we learn to take our own decisions and believe what we see and not what others tell us to see, " - that is the theme of this fabricated tale, in which we are told to believe that life in a Northern Irish ghetto, where people live like this: http://work-way.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Loyalist-bonfire.jpg

- which I see with my own eyes every day! -, is akin to life in the DPRK, where people have no idea of what unemployment, drug addiction, sectarian murder, and child alcoholism are.
You know, Davy, we think we can live without what you and your sponsors and bosses are telling us to believe!

3.CHANNEL 4 ANTI DPRK RUBBISH CONDEMNED
Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Policy Department
of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK issued the following statement on Sunday:
Recently the British 4th TV channel producers openly made public
a plan for producing and airing a serial TV drama-style movie malignantly slandering the DPRK.
The movie is nothing but a conspiratorial charade painting a wrong picture of the DPRK's reality as it is based on a sheer lie
intended to give impression that the DPRK's nuclear treasured sword for self-defence was manufactured by "illegally acquiring" nuclear
technology from Britain.
The broadcasting service is blustering without hesitation that the purpose of the movie is to tell the world that the DPRK is the
"most closed country on the earth" and the "biggest threat" to the
Western world.
No matter how desperately the producers of the above-said TV channel, hooligans and rogues under the guise of artistes, may work to falsify the reality, they can never hide the truth.
The DPRK's nuclear treasured sword for self-defence is the proud fruition of the defense industry in the era of Songun based on its own efforts, technology and resources from A to Z.
The Juche-oriented nuclear power of the DPRK which is on the ultra-modern world level is so powerful and tremendous that no one can imagine.
The U.S., a master hand at plots and fabrications, dares not deny
this hard fact.
Those who are talking about "illegal acquisition of nuclear technology" are no more than blind fools and idiots bereft of even
elementary ability to discern the truth.
The gravity of the situation lies in that this despicable burlesque is being orchestrated at the tacit connivance, patronage and
instigation by "Downing Street".
This mud-slinging is a premeditated politically-motivated provocation and deliberate hostile act to hurt the dignity of the
supreme leadership and tarnish the sovereign authority of the DPRK and its international image.
It is not exaggeration to say that Britain is the country with inborn disposition of blindly copying the American-style diplomacy.
This is evidenced by the fact that when a movie company of Hollywood distributed a preview of a reactionary movie peppered with
the story hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK after producing it, the British broadcasting service deliberately used
it for staging such charade.
The British authorities should not forget even a moment the lesson drawn from the incident in which that it was sentenced to
permanent death because of "poems of evil" which groundlessly slandered a country in the Mideast in the past.
Reckless anti-DPRK hysteria would only bring disgrace and self-destruction.
The British authorities should throw reactionary movies now being planned or in the process of production into a dumping ground without delay and punish the chief culprits.
This would help prevent any hurt to the image of the UK and
preserve the hard-won diplomatic relations between the DPRK and Britain.
It would be well advised to judge itself what consequences would
be entailed if it ignores the DPRK's warning.
ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA slam anti DPRK propaganda serial
http://juche007-anglo-peopleskoreafriendship.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/asspuk-jisge-and-uk-kfa-slam-anti-dprk.html
London 1st of September Juche 103(2014)
The ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA issued the following joint statement in support of the statement of the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on the
plan of Channel Four to make an anti DPRK serial "Opposite Number ";
We strongly support the statement of the Policy Department of the DPRK National Defence Commission on the issue of a proposed anti-DPRK tv serial.
The plan by Channel Four to make a so-called spy thriller "Opposite Number " is yet another twist to the anti DPRK propaganda campaign by the British imperialist media . This is all part of the Goebbelseque "big lie" strategy of the capitalist media to slander and defame the Democratic People's Republic of Korea , to brainwash the British
people into harbouring hostility towards the DPRK. We friends of the DPRK and Juche Idea and Songun Idea followers of the UK cannot tolerate such a thing.
This is not the first time that Channel Four have shown anti-DPRK propaganda. Back in the year 2000 Channel Four broadcast the notorious "Children of the Secret State " an anti DPRK film that was filmed in south Korea and Thailand rather than the DPRK but this footage was passed off as being in the DPRK.(it should be noted that another anti-DPRK film in production "The Wall" is being filmed in the poorer parts of Belfast and these will be passed off as
the DPRK).. The makers of the programme repeat all the usual worn-out
propaganda cliches about the DPRK "closed country " and " one of the most dangerous for the West" . This clearly shows the intention of the makers of the programme to slander and besmirch the DPRK and defame the socialist system of the DPRK.
Channel Four is well know for producing programmes of dubious repute such the so-called reality TV show "Big
Brother ", a real cultural cesspit.
The Channel Four tv serial "Opposite Number " has a far-fetched and implausible plot which has no relation to reality . The DPRK's nuclear deterrent is the product of the Juche-orienated self-reliant industry of the DPRK and the efforts of its efforts people under the Songun revolutionary leadership . The DPRK's nuclear deterrent has been constructed using 100% DPRK resources, labour and know-how, it is not the product of another country .
It is deeply regrettable that Britain lacks an independent policy on Korea and instead kow-tows to the US.
We believe that if such a programme is shown it will do irreparable damage to friendship and co-operation between the Korean and British peoples and imperil diplomatic relations. Therefore the programme should be cancelled at once. It is time for the British media to stop blindly following the US and report the DPRK in a positive and truthful way.

CAUSES OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR. THE COLLAPSE OF THE II INTERNATIONAL

100 years ago in the summer of 1914, an imperialist war broke out, which saw the total participation of 38 states with a population of over half a billion people. This was the first world war gripping 75% of the world’s population.
The war brought untold suffering and distress to nations around the world. On the battlefields 10 million were killed, and 10 million people injured.
The First World War was brewing in the development of imperialism. What led to the war was the worsening uneven development of the capitalist countries and the contradictions between them, a fierce struggle for the redivision of the world between the two military-political groups of the European powers - the Entente and the Triple Alliance, an arms race.
By 1914, the contradictions between the imperialist powers were strained to the limit. All of them were hard at it preparing for war.
German imperialism was eager for war, hoping to divide the world in their favour, to subdue most of Europe and the Middle East to establish world domination.
Imperialists of Austria-Hungary sought to gain control over Serbia and prevent the liberation of the Slavic peoples, then assert their domination over the entire Balkan peninsula and the Adriatic Sea.
British imperialists counted on by means of war to weaken Germany, to capture the German colonies, divide the Turkish empire, and capture its control over Mesopotamia (now Iraq) and the Arabian Peninsula, to further increase the vast colonial possessions of the British Empire.
French imperialism hoped not only to regain Alsace and Lorraine, but also to seize the Saar coal basin, a part of the German colonies.
Russia was in a financial dependence on France and part of Britain. This contributed to its entry into the war. But Tsarist Russia had its own reasons for war. Russian imperialism did not want the strengthening of the German influence in Turkey and the Balkans, as it sought to establish its own dominance in these countries. Russian capitalists are very worried about the competition of German goods on the domestic market of Russia.
Turkey, which the Entente imperialists in case of victory intended to carve up, on its part sought occasion to re-enslave the peoples of the Balkan Peninsula. The most aggressive circles in Turkey even dreamed of occupying the Crimea and the Caucasus, including the border regions of Persia (Iran).
The imperialist powers, undertaking the war, in addition to the seizure of foreign lands, pursued another goal - they were hoping to use the situation created by the war, for a decisive suppression of the revolutionary workers' and national liberation movements.
Outbreak of war benefited the weakness of the anti-imperialist forces. At the beginning of the XX century, the forces of the world were significantly weaker than the forces of war. The main stronghold of peace was the working class. However, many of its organizations were under the influence of opportunists. This paralyzed the international proletariat in its struggle against imperialism and war. Imperialist war became inevitable.
War broke out. Another Austro-Serbian conflict served as the pretext for war. In Serbia, there are numerous national organizations making it their duty to free all of the South Slavs from Austro-Hungarian oppression. Many of these organizations adhered to the tactics of individual acts of terrorism. Thus, the organization "Mlada Bosna" condemned to death the heir to the Austrian and Hungarian thrones, Chief of the Army of the monarchy, Archduke Franz Ferdinand. He was killed on June 28, 1914 by a member of the "Mlada Bosna" Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia, where the heir arrived after military maneuvers. Aggressive elements in the Austro-Hungarian Empire decided to use this event as an excuse to enslave Serbia.
Immediately after the assassination of the heir, the Viennese government appealed to Berlin for support. There, it did not have to beg for help. Emperor Wilhelm II, representing the interests of the German imperialists directly pushed Austria-Hungary to war. The German government pledged full support for its ally. In Berlin, they thought not only about the massacre of Serbia, but also the defeat of Russia and France, and on the use of a favourable environment for the indigenous redivision of the world.
In early July, Wilhelm II through the Austrian ambassador in Berlin gave the Austro-Hungarian government unequivocal advice: "Do not procrastinate with this action" (against Serbia). Austria-Hungary on July 23 sent an ultimatum to Serbia. It was presented with humiliating demands that no state that valued their independence and dignity would accept. The Serbian government was given 48 hours to respond.
On the advice of Russia, rightly considering itself not yet prepared for war, the Serbian government showed maximum flexibility: prior to the expiration, the Austrian envoy reported acceptance of the ultimatum, except only for one demand, very crudely violating the sovereignty of Serbia, - participation of Austrian officials in the investigation on the territory Serbia on the murder of the Archduke. The envoy nevertheless immediately announced the severance of diplomatic relations with Serbia.
On July 28, the Austro-Hungarian government by telegram declared war on Serbia. Austro-Hungarian troops invaded the Serbian territory and bombed the capital Belgrade.
Following mobilization in Austro-Hungary, Russia’s mobilization began. The capture of Serbia by Austria-Hungary would mean establishing its rule over the Balkan Peninsula. Neither Russia nor the rest of the Entente powers did not want to let that happen. In response to the mobilization of the Russian army, on August 1, Germany declared war on Russia, and August 3 – on France. German troops immediately invaded Belgium, illegally violating its neutrality.
Germany at the time signed with other European powers a treaty on the neutrality of Belgium, but the German government had flouted its international obligations. The imperial Chancellor cynically called the treaty of neutrality of Belgium a "scrap of paper."
In these troubled days, the British government had a very ambiguous policy. British imperialists wanted war, so they encouraged German aggression. To do this, the British Foreign Secretary at the German government supported the ILLUSION that Britain would remain neutral. When war broke out on the continent, the British government unveiled maps and on 4 August declared war on Germany under the pretext of protecting the Germans who violated Belgian neutrality.
The war launched by the five major powers of Europe, gradually embroiled about four dozen countries in different parts of the world. It involved also the colonies of the European powers. The war had become worldwide.
During the war the imperialists ruthlessly extorted from the colonies raw materials and food. In addition, hundreds of thousands of indigenous people of these colonies were exported to Europe to work in the rear, and as soldiers, who used to command the most difficult parts of the front. England, for example, mobilized in their overseas colonies nearly 1 million soldiers, and France - about 300 thousand.
The nature of war. The war that began in July - August 1914 was an imperialist predatory war and unfair on both sides. Only Serbia in the war continued a long struggle for independence and liberation of the South Slavs from the oppression of Austria-Hungary. For Serbia, this war was a national liberation war and a just war. But this did not alter the predatory character of the First World War, taken as a whole.

The instigators of the First World War were imperialists of all countries, as they had aggressive policies. However the initiators unleashed of the war in 1914 were Germany and its imperialist ally of Austria-Hungary. They went to war because they had prepared earlier and better than their opponents. Germany created a strong army, excellently equipped with military equipment. It had a very dense network of railways, prepared for military transportation to the borders. German military industry exceeded French and Russian together.
The collapse of the II International. The bourgeoisie and the landowners of all countries urged people to join the war and to give full support to their government. The church, press, film and other means of publicity fuelled chauvinistic attitudes. In each country, the imperialists were trying to convince people, and especially soldiers marching to the front, in the justness of the war. They claimed that it was carried out only for the sake of defence, and that this was supposedly to be the last war for everlasting peace and happiness for all future generations (a war to end all wars).
The opportunistic leaders of the parties of the II International also joined the general chorus of military-chauvinist propaganda.
The Basel and Stuttgart Congress Resolutions made against imperialist war were forgotten (see § 35). Leaders of the socialist parties, trade unions used the party and the trade union apparatus and press, to prove the need for the working class to help "their own" imperialist bourgeoisie to wage war. They called on the workers for "civil peace", i.e., for an end to their struggle against the bourgeoisie in any form during the war.
The German socialists – deputies of the Reichstag - and the French socialists - members of the Chamber of Deputies on the same day, August 4, 1914, voted for the appropriation of funds for the war. Thus they supported the imperialist military policies of their governments. The leadership of the Labour Party in Britain in late August issued a special resolution on the support of the military policy of the government.
Socialist leaders of Britain, France, Belgium, even including people like J. Ged, once so vehemently opposed the treachery of Millerand soon got into their governments. German and Austrian Social Democrats were not included in the government because they were not called in.
Opportunist leaders of the socialist parties of the II International betrayed the cause of the international proletariat, refused to fight against the imperialist war. They went on to open alliance with the bourgeoisie, supported it in organizing the world war. Socialist leaders betrayed the interests of the working class, taking chauvinistic positions. They were called the social-chauvinists.
Socialists of the Entente at a specially convened international conference defended their imperialists; the socialists of the German bloc powers made the same betrayal. The International crashed and disintegrated.
Several leaders of the socialist parties, such as Kautsky in Germany, McDonald in Britain and others, spoke pas words against the war, calling for peace, but at the same time preached renunciation of revolutionary struggle. Thus, they, as well as the open opportunists, betrayed the interests of the proletariat. The position of such disguised traitors is most harmful, because workers find it harder to figure out than the position of outright traitors.
The struggle of the Bolsheviks, led by Lenin for the unity of the revolutionary forces. Of all parties of the II International, only Bolshevik Party headed by VI Lenin led a consistent, uncompromising struggle against the imperialist war, social-chauvinism and centrism.
In November 1914, the manifesto of the RSDLP Bolshevik "War and Russian Social-Democracy" written by VI Lenin (see document) was published.
The manifesto exposed the imperialist character of the war and the true predatory aims of the belligerent powers. In this remarkable document bourgeois chauvinism was exposed along with its support for the leaders of the socialist parties and the depth of their betrayal. The Bolsheviks called for the following:
a) begin the struggle for the transformation of the imperialist war into a civil war, ie, a revolutionary war against the bourgeoisie and landlords in order to gain state power by the proletariat;
b) accept the slogan of the defeat of their government in the imperialist war of conquest;
c) a complete break with the opportunists, and from the collapse of the II International, create a new, III International, free of opportunist elements.
VI Lenin and the Bolsheviks from autumn 1914, launched a struggle under these slogans against all kinds of opportunism, for the unity of the revolutionary internationalist elements of various socialist parties.


Manifesto by the RSDLP Bolshevik "War and Russian Social-Democracy"

(Printed November 1, 1914 (for n. Tbsp.) In the paper "Social Democrat», № 33. Abridged)
.
The European war, which the governments and the bourgeois parties of all countries have been preparing for decades, has broken out. The growth of armaments, the extreme intensification of the struggle for markets in the latest—the imperialist—stage of capitalist development in the advanced countries, and the dynastic interests of the more backward East-European monarchies were inevitably bound to bring about this war, and have done so. Seizure of territory and subjugation of other nations, the ruining of competing nations and the plunder of their wealth, distracting the attention of the working masses from the internal political crises in Russia, Germany, Britain and other countries, disuniting and nationalist stultification of the workers, and the extermination of their vanguard so as to weaken the revolutionary movement of the proletariat—these comprise the sole actual content, importance and significance of the present war.
It is primarily on Social-Democracy that the duty rests of revealing the true meaning of the war, and of ruthlessly exposing the falsehood, sophistry and “patriotic” phrasemongering spread by the ruling classes, the landowners and the bourgeoisie, in defence of the war.
At this time of supreme and historic importance, most of the leaders of the present Socialist International, the Second (1889-1914), are trying to substitute nationalism for socialism. As a result of their behaviour, the workers’ parties of these countries did not oppose the governments’ criminal conduct, but called upon the working class to identify its position with that of the imperialist governments. The leaders of the International committed an act of treachery against socialism by voting for war credits, by reiterating the chauvinist (“patriotic”) slogans of the bourgeoisie of their “own” countries, by justifying and defending the war, by joining the bourgeois governments of the belligerent countries, and so on and so forth.
The opportunists have wrecked the decisions of the Stuttgart, Copenhagen and Basle congresses,[1] which made it binding on socialists of all countries to combat chauvinism in all and any conditions, made it binding on socialists to reply to any war begun by the bourgeoisie and governments, with intensified propaganda of civil war and social revolution.
But in all the advanced countries the war has placed on the order of the day the slogan of socialist revolution, a slogan that is the more urgent, the more heavily the burden of war presses upon the shoulders of the proletariat, and the more active its future role must become in the re-creation of Europe, after the horrors of the present “patriotic” barbarism in conditions of the tremendous technological progress of large-scale capitalism.
The proletarian International has not gone under and will not go under. Notwithstanding all obstacles, the masses of the workers will create a new International. Opportunism’s present triumph will be short-lived. The greater the sacrifices imposed by the war the clearer will it become to the mass of the workers that the opportunists have betrayed the workers’ cause and that the weapons must be turned against the government and the bourgeoisie of each country.
The conversion of the present imperialist war into a civil war is the only correct proletarian slogan, one that follows from the experience of the Commune, and outlined in the Basle resolution (1912); it bas been dictated by all the conditions of an imperialist war between highly developed bourgeois countries. However difficult that transformation may seem at any given moment, socialists will never relinquish systematic, persistent and undeviating preparatory work in this direction now that war has become a fact.
It is only along this path that the proletariat will be able to shake off its dependence on the chauvinist bourgeoisie, and, in one form or another and more or less rapidly, take decisive steps towards genuine freedom for the nations and towards socialism.
Long live the international fraternity of the workers against the chauvinism and patriotism of the bourgeoisie of all countries!
Long live a proletarian International, freed from opportunism!

HANDS OFF THE DONETSK AND LUGANSK PEOPLE'S REPUBLICS!

STATEMENT
From the Bureau of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (AUCPB) in Belarus and the Kaliningrad region, Patriotic public association "Fatherland", the Belarusian Central Committee of the Communist Party of Workers (BKPT), Republican Public Association "For the Union and the Communist Party of the Union" (ROO SKPS), the Belarusian branch of the International Union of Soviet Officers, International Public Association "For the Motherland! For Stalin! "
At the moment the whole world with a heavy heart is following the ongoing hostilities in the South-East of Ukraine and the destruction of the civilian population of the region. The tragic events in Ukraine are becoming increasingly widespread in the nature of a civil war. The number of people killed and wounded in this fratricidal war is growing along with the hundreds of thousands of refugees in order to preserve life are leaving their homes, being deprived of shelter, work, food security. This year marks the 70th anniversary of Ukraine's liberation from Nazi invaders by the Red Army, 70 years of Ukraine living under a peaceful sky, and now again its towns and villages are being exposed to shelling with heavy artillery and bombing from the air. According to eyewitnesses, media professionals and representatives of various international organizations in these military attacks are the majority of those dying are not those in the self defence forces but the civilians of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, including children, women and the elderly.
The theme of the war in the South-East of Ukraine forth the fourth month in a row has been on the front pages of the world media and is one of the most important, because many things in today's world depend on the outcome of the Ukrainian crisis. Passions around Ukraine in recent days have especially intensified after the death on the territory of the People's Republic of Donetsk of almost three hundred passengers flying in a "Boeing" airplane, owned by a Malaysian airline company. Speeches and statements by leaders of the U.S., Russia, Ukraine and the EU on this issue appeared in the media almost every day. However, we, the representatives of the above organizations consider it necessary to note and draw public attention to those moments in the conflict, which the leaders of many countries in their statements and decisions in relation to the events in Ukraine are trying to ignore or do not even notice.

1. When talking about the neo-banderite junta which seized power in Ukraine, we are not dealing with an ordinary bourgeois-democratic government, but a fascist government which established an open terrorist dictatorship in the country, a government that tramples upon the democratic rights and freedoms of its citizens, a government that has established such orders under which prevails not the law, but brute force and weapons. In modern Ukraine, persecution of dissidents and citizens and even deputies of the Verkhovna Rada (upper house of parliament) has become the norm.
Election of the President of Ukraine Poroshenko who financed the coup in Maidan, in violation of the conditions of the democratic electoral process, in an environment where not only many citizens did not vote, but entire regions did not vote, as a consequence did not make Kiev junta a legitimate goverment.
Having set about crushing the nationwide monuments to VI Lenin, the fascist neo-banderites hung out in the streets and squares of Ukrainian cities and towns portraits of fascists Bandera and Shukhevych on whose hands are stained the blood of thousands and thousands of tortured and brutally murdered Jews, Poles, Russians, Ukrainians and other nationalities. As you know, the burning of the residents of Belarusian Khatyn was also the handiwork of the Bandera death squads, which often even surpassed the cruelty of their masters - the Nazi executioners.
As is known, the Nazis began their reign in Germany with the persecution of Communists. Presently, their followers – the Kievan rulers – are also conducting business in efforts to ban Communist activities in Ukraine.
Its is unlikely in Europe, which during World War II suffered from Nazism, that some states would agree to have the same "democracy", which is now installed in Ukraine and such a pro-Nazi government at that.

2. The present Kiev government in Ukraine is not independent. It is completely controlled by the leadership of the Western countries, primarily the United States. These Kiev puppets do not make a single step without the consent of their Western puppeteers, and adopt a policy of handing over the national interests of the Ukrainian state to foreign corporations of Zionist-American imperialism. Therefore, the current rulers of Ukraine on the whole can not even be called nationalists. These are collaborators and lackeys of the West.

3. In the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics on 11 May 2014, popular referendums were held on the issue "Do you support the act of the proclamation of independence of Donetsk (Luhansk) of the People's Republic?" As many journalists and observers noted, the referendum was held with an unusually high turnout in some communities with some areas where in the referendum up to 90% of the population took part. The overwhelming majority of the inhabitants of the DPR and the LPR voted in favour of independence for their republics: "for" national sovereignty of the DPR in favour voted 89.07% of voters, "for" state sovereignty of LPR - 90.53%. As is known, in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 16 December 1966 (in both Covenants - Article 1) provides: "All peoples have the right to self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development ... ". And this right was realized by the population of Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics.
However, despite the evidence of the decision by Donbass residents, many political scientists and leaders of Western countries, Ukraine and even states of former Soviet republics continue to whine on about these referendums not matching certain international standards. But they do not take into account the main thing: the people of Donbass clearly and unambiguously expressed THEIR STRONG POLITICAL WILL: THEY DO NOT WANT TO LIVE UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE KIEV NEO-BANDERITE JUNTA.
With regard to the issue of recognition of the referendum results, then let Western politicians answer the question of why they recognized the independence and separation of Kosovo from Yugoslavia, where, as previously noted the Russian Foreign Ministry, "no such plebiscite, more so coherent with the norms of the international community, on the issue of Kosovo's independence was ever held."

4. The state unity of Ukraine could have been preserved, if the government of Yanukovych had not continued his predecessors ultranationalist policies of attacking the rights of the Russian-speaking population of the republic and promised a referendum on making Russian a state language, and also took a clear course towards integration with Russia. Under current conditions, after the bloody coup and the massacre carried out by today’s Ukrainian fascists against rebellious citizens of Ukraine, quite a different political situation has developed. Residents of Donbass, Odessa and other affected regions will never forget and will not forgive the neo-banderites who murdered their children, wives, mothers and other relatives, as they constantly talk about now. The borderline between East and West Ukraine has now passed through their hearts, and this open wound on them will last a long time. If all this is not taken into account and the policy of genocide continues against the Russian speaking population of Donbass and other regions stubbornly for the sake of so-called for unity of Ukraine to, it will eventually be a conserved bomb that will explode sooner or later.

5. The Kiev and Western leaders together with media in their reports on the events in the South-East of Ukraine call the self defence forces pro-Russian "separatists". This is wrong, because the movement for independence and insubordination to the neo-banderites arose throughout Novorossiya in Kharkov, Odessa, Donetsk, Lugansk, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye, Nikolayev and Kherson immediately after the coup on February 21-22, 2014. It is the neo-banderites with their actions from the arsenal of the fascist dictatorship attacking the dignity of the population of Novorossia that caused a wave of resistance. It was not miners armed with batons and guns that came to Kiev, but the Ukrainian army controlled by Kiev that came into Donbass as the aggressor with war.
Therefore, the demands made by Poroshenko and Co. that Donbass self defence forces lay down their weapons are invalid because the people have a sacred right to protection from abuse from any aggressor. And if the anti-fascists in the hero-city of Odessa had weapons in their hands, the fascist aggressors from Kiev would have received an adequate response, and the Odessa Khatyn tragedy would not have happened.
Therefore, it is the current Kiev authorities who are responsible for the split of Ukraine and their Western backers can justifiably be called "separatists".

6. The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in the USSR was a truly united and prosperous state, and was among the most developed countries in the world, because contributed to this most progressive Soviet socialist system. Problems in Ukraine began immediately after the bourgeois counter-revolutionary coup in 1991, and since then, the in the state began to accumulate the inevitable contradictions of capitalism. As is known, a Parliament is a slice of society. All the world in the last twenty years has witnessed how in the Verkhovna Rada with unfailing regularity occur fisticuffs that is a reflection of the contradictions in the current Ukrainian bourgeois society. Here it is – the true modern Ukraine.
As you know, there are no Russians among the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada (Upper House and neither can there be, as in there are only deputies elected from the regions of Ukraine itself, but fisticuffs there have never ceased. Thus, accusations against Russia that it provokes "pro-Russian separatism", to put it mildly, are incorrect.

7. As you know, the main destroyer of many countries on the planet and destabilizing factor of economic and political situations is Zionist-US imperialism. U.S. intervention in the internal affairs of Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya did not lead to the stabilization of their development, democratization or prosperity. Conversely, Yugoslavia has already been destroyed and the rest of the above-mentioned countries, the fracture mechanism is gaining momentum. Power there has been grabbed by the most reactionary regimes. At the same time the United States does not plead guilty, in their arsenal is still the blatant lie, frank cynicism and most shameless audacity. These same qualities have been adopted by the Kiev authorities and supervised by the Americans.
The technique to destabilize the situation in other countries and interfere in their internal affairs is currently being implemented by the U.S in Ukraine. The whole world witnessed how U.S. State Department Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland during the confrontation at the Maidan, distributed buns her "revolutionaries", giving them moral support in overthrowing the government of Yanukovych. After that, the amount of material support given was released - five billion dollars.

8. A legacy of the international community was the information that in the Donbass (at the junction of the south of the Kharkiv region of the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics) are located abundant reserves of shale gas. That's where the eyes of American moneybags streamed towards, and namely there that the fiercest fighting has been taking place (Slavonic, Kramators'k, etc.) recently.
Shale gas extraction in the U.S. has been gradually cut by American business tycoons as a polluting industry, but in Ukraine they intend to deploy it because it promises them: a) large economic benefits; b) allow it to supply gas to Ukraine and EU countries and break their economic ties with Russia, will increase dependence on the U.S. by European allies- satellite states; c) undermine the competitor on the world energy market - the Russian Federation.
Contracts to develop gas fields with the British-Dutch company "Shell" and the American "Chevron" for 50 years were concluded by the Yanukovych government. Out of the tough conditions of the contract, it follow that the imperialist giants need only bare land with reserves of gas and coal and a small number of Ukrainian workers for the extraction process, and they do not need other people. That's why for the sake of the imperialist giants, the Kiev junta carries out the carpet bombing over Donbass cities, destroying the civilian population. And in order to find a pretext at any cost for placing at first foreign contingents of police in Donbass, and then the military, apparently, the provocation with the Malaysian "Boeing" was invented.
In connection with the tragedy associated with the Malaysian aircraft and the death of the passengers onboard, there is currently being deployed in the world's media a noisy propaganda campaign. Representatives of Ukraine and the countries of the West in the first hours after the disaster appointed responsibility for it to Russia and DPR self defence forces. Regardless of the groundless, unsubstantiated statements made by many of the most senior officials and heads of state, they can not shed light on the cause of the crash. Only a genuine objective investigation can establish the truth which, apparently, is of no interest to the Ukrainian authorities or their Western patrons. They still have not answered 10 questions by the Russian Defense Ministry and 22 questions laid out by Rosaviation. But the U.S. and its lackeys in Kiev still remain silent. Apparently, not without reason.
As for the whole socio-economic situation in the east of Novorossiya (Donbass), the global oligarchy (American, European, Ukrainian, Russian, etc.) are not happy with the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, whose leaders declared their intention to nationalize large enterprises in the region which are still the private property of Ukrainian and other billionaires. Apparently, therefore, the bourgeois Putin government is in no hurry to save Donbass. As we can see, in this conflict, the class solidarity of the oligarchs prevails over the imperialist contradictions.
In this regard, we, the representatives of the Bureau of the Central Committee of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (CC AUCPB) for Belarus and the Kaliningrad region, Patriotic public association "Fatherland", the Belarusian Central Committee of the Communist Party of Workers (BKPT), Republican Public Association "For the Union and the Communist Party of the Union" (ROO SKPS), the Belarusian branch of the International Union of Soviet Officers, International Public Association "For the Motherland! For Stalin! ", express full support for the just struggle of the people of Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics and their armed forces for their freedom and independence, as well as actions towards the nationalization of enterprises located in the republics, that income from their work goes not into the pockets of Ukrainian and foreign oligarchs, but towards the needs of the working people of the region.
We express our strong protest against the continued punitive operation by the armed forces of the Kiev junta against the people of Novorossiya (DPR and LPR), including with the use of phosphorus and cluster munitions, which resulted in the killing of innocent civilians. The firing which is being carried out on civilians by the Ukrainian military, using both conventional small arms and "Grad" systems, tanks, guns and planes - is a war crime, and the perpetrators should be punished. The Ukrainian military actions are also criminal in the case of them using phosphorus shells against military targets of the self defence forces of Donbass, because their use is prohibited by the Protocol of international Geneva Convention of 1979.
We appeal to the leaders of the international community to recognize the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, whose population at their referendums voted for independence. The heroic resistance against the punitive actions being carried out by the armed forces of the fascist neo-banderite Ukrainian government earns the respect of all progressive people.
We demand that the civilian population of the blockaded city of Donbass is granted broad humanitarian assistance. Given the ongoing fighting there, humanitarian convoys and columns of refugees should be provided with armed protection against terrorist gangs and attacks from the air.
We urge the Government of the Russian Federation with a demand that it provides effective assistance to the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics and strongly expresses its support, because without feeling any resistance from Russia, the Kiev junta and its overseas masters will have become completely audacious.
In order to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and the further loss of innocent people in Donbass, we appeal to the leaders of Western countries with the demand to persuade the present Ukrainian leadership to end its punitive operations in the South-East of Ukraine. By supporting the criminal acts carried out by the fascist Ukrainian murderers in power, and having grown and strengthened fascism in Ukraine, the West will inevitably get it themselves – that is, fascism at home.
We demand from the Kiev government that usurped power in Ukraine, to stop the aggression against the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. We should not forget the lessons of history: the aggressors and war criminals sooner or later await just retribution.

Hands off Donetsk and Lugansk!

London 2nd of August Juche 103(2014)
The ASSPUK , Juche Idea Study
Group of England and UK Korean Friendship Association issued the
following statement in support of the statement made by the Korean
National Peace Committee on the 1st of August;
Recently the aggressive US imperialists ,the sworn enemy of the
Korean people , and their reactionary fascistic lackey the south
Korean puppets announced their plan to stage the "Ulji Freedom
Guardian " military exercise in south Korea later this month . They
stated that they would incorporate into these drills their so-called
"tailored deterrence strategy " and include a practice operation for
nuclear war. This does clearly show the evil and aggressive intent of
US imperialism to provoke a war against the Democratic People's
Republic of Korea and to stifle Korean-style socialism by force.
These exercises
follow on from other US and south military exercises held these year
such as Foal Eagle/Key Resolve, Max Thunder and other aggressive
exercises . The DPRK has made numerous peace proposals as well as some
concrete measures to improve inter-Korean relations but these are
being wilfully ignored by the south Korean puppets who are now rushing
headlong into yet more military exercises with their US imperialist
overlords and masters.
The US imperialists and their south Korean puppets have
hypocritically taken issue with the the DPRK's self defensive missile
tests carried out on its own soil but plan to carry out nuclear war
exercises on the land of Korea thousands of miles from their shores.
We ask ; Where is the condemnation of the UN Security Council ?
Ulji Freedom Guardian is not only an affront to the dignity
and sovereignty of the DPRK but because it involves a test drill for
a nuclear war it is a very serious threat to world peace .

We fully support the call of the Korean National Peace Committee for
the cancellation of the exercises.

3, AUGUST 15 DAY OF KOREA'S LIBERATION
On August 15th the DPRK will celebrate the 69th anniversary of
liberation from Japanese imperialism . Korea's liberation was not the
the gift of big powers but the fruit of the 20 year long armed
struggle led by the great leader
President Kim Il Sung.
Japan, an ally of Nazi Germany and fascist Italy, had annexed Korea in
1910 . They had severely repressed the Korean people even forbidding
the use of the Korean language in Korea as well as plundering Korea of
valuable resources. The Japanese imperialists committed unspeakable
atrocities such as forcing Korean women into sexual slavery and
killing many Korean people.
The anti-Japanese armed struggle led by the great leader general Kim
Il Sung was a thunderbolt of independence that shattered forever the
oppression of Japanese imperialist colonial rule over Korea. Korea
became a nation instead of being part of the "Greater East Asia
Prosperity Sphere" of the deranged fascist Samurai's. With the
achievement of independence on August 15th 1945 the Korean people
gained a new life of independence and creativity becoming masters of
their own fate. A new era of national resurrection under the banner of
the Juche idea began on August 15th 1945.

Today under the leadership of respected Marshal Kim Jong Un and the
Workers' Party of Korea the DPRK is further consolidating its
independence .

For Bolshevism No 8 (137) - August 2014

Socialist Revolution
For Bolshevism Inside The Communist And Workers’ Movement

August 2014 No 8 (137)


DONBASS: THE CLASS CONFRONTATION INTENSIFIES
The class confrontation between the Kiev fascist junta and the working people on the territory of Donbass and Ukraine is not subsiding and for more than three months remains at the centre of world attention.
Let's start with the fact that on June 25, the parliaments of Donetsk and Lugansk republics adopted the Constitutional Act on the establishment of the Union of People's Republics of DPR and LPR. The union state is called Novorossiya. Also announced was the formation of a regular army of Novorossiya.
The punitive operation by the Ukrainian junta meanwhile continues. Calls to "resolve the situation peacefully," are periodically issued from official Moscow, based only on the idea of the Donbass People's self defence force disarmament and termination of resistance. The European Union and the imperialist government of the United States cannot (or even want to) offer anything else. In the context of the continued fighting and technical superiority of the Ukrainian army, such a call to the young Novorossiya to lay down arms is really a call to its "death."
In war, the situation changes rapidly, and one of the few conclusions that can be made now is for sure - all "attempts at a peaceful settlement," declared by Poroshenko were false. There was no ceasefire between the forces of the junta and the People's self defence forces announced in late June.
Ukrainian troops continued to fire mortars and artillery on the territory of Slavyansk, Kramatorskaya, Semyonovka, Selidovo and other settlements of South-East Ukraine. According to eyewitness reports, shots were aimed at homes, hospitals and children's institutions, and the water system regularly out of action. Victims of attacks are civilians. Militants of the "National Guard" hinder the evacuation Sloviansk where there is a shortage of food.

***
The Kiev junta is carrying out a real genocide against the residents of Donbass, using weapons of mass destruction. On June 12 - 13, there were reports on the use by the Ukrainian army during the shelling of the village of Semenivka (near Slavyansk) of ammunition, stuffed with white phosphorus. White phosphorus is a highly active chemical agent that causes severe burns and is virtually impossible to extinguish by conventional means. It has been banned by the UN for use in combat since the Vietnam War. On June 30, the deputy commander of the People's defence force Igor Strelkov said that after the firing, people with symptoms of poisoning by chlorine arrived at the hospital in Sloviansk. "Explosions occur in the air, after which a there is a cloud of smoke. They fire these projectiles when the wind is blowing in our direction, "- Strelkov told reporters. On the eve of this, the self defence force stated that the junta army had used unknown chemical weapons in the village of Semenivka and that two self defence fighters were taken to hospital in a serious condition. In addition, in May attempts by the junta were thwarted when they tried to poison the water in the river Severny Donets by sabotaging the water treatment facilities.
According to some analysts, the systematic destruction and displacement of people from Donbass carried out by the Kiev junta, is dictated by concern for the interests of large foreign mining corporations.
According to the Minister of Defence of the Lugansk People's Republic, Igor Plotnitsky, on the territory of South-East are located abundant reserves of shale gas. Its deposits are located just in the area where the armed conflict is the most violent - between Lugansk, Slavyansk and Kramatorsk.
A contract to develop the gas fields was made between the Yanukovych government on January 24, 2013 and multinational giants "Shell" (British-Dutch corporation «Dutch Shell») and "Chevron" (American energy company «Chevron Corporation», one of the largest corporations in the world).
Fracking of shale gas is a serious environmental threat, and the intention to carry it on the territory of Ukraine before the coup aroused strong indignation and resistance by the residents of Donbass. Perhaps that is why the agreement to extract Donbass shale gas by the "sharks" of world imperialism is classified during the entire validity period (50 years) plus 5 years, with the right of renewal. Political scientist Eduard Ivanov writes about this in his article "The Secret Shale Gas contract of Ukraine": "... in Appendix 1 to the Agreement with the company “Shell” shall be given the exact coordinates of area to be allocated for the production of shale gas. We made them a map to understand exactly what is meant by the words "Treaty Land." It turned out that this area is mainly in the Donetsk Peoples Republic and the Kharkov region with an area of 7,886 square kilometres. It completely covers the fairly large towns of Slovyansk, Izyum, Barvenkovo, a huge chunk of Kramatorsk, part of Druzhkovka and Balakley, as well as hundreds of smaller settlements. Here is a list of only the largest of them: Gusarovka, Savintsy, Chervonny Oskol, Krasny Liman, Seversk, Yasnogorka, Avdiyivka, Krasnogorovka, Orlovka, Sedge, Novogrigorovka, Novonikolaevka, Toretskoy, Alexandrovka, Novoaleksandrovka, Ocheretino, Petrine, Great Kamyshevakha, Chervonyi Shakhtyor, Petrovskoye, etc. ... According to Article 37.2 (b) of the agreement, "... If the land is privately owned and the owners have not agreed to sign the Agreement On Land Plots voluntarily or demand entering conditions into such agreements on the land plots which, according to the reasoned opinion of the Operator, are unacceptable, [the state shall guarantee] a cessation ... private property rights, constant use, lease and other rights of third parties regarding such land. All sites that are the subject to such cessation... after this are provided to the Operator with a reasonable time frame based on the Agreement of Land Plots that include reasonable conditions."
That is the explanation of the brutal bombing, the participation of foreign mercenaries in fighting on the side of the junta – the imperialist monopolies need bare ground over the coveted deposits of gas, oil and coal, plus a small group of submissive slave labourers for drilling and other service facilities. And the bourgeoisie of all countries need a clear example for their own workers, to warn them off a possible rebellion and attacks on "sacred" private property looted and purchased by capitalists due to inhibition of these same workers. As such an "example", the Kiev junta now "exemplary" bombs and shoot civilians of Donbass with the tacit encouragement of world imperialism.
The bourgeois government of the Russian Federation finally responded to the many calls made for help to fighting Donbass. But is did this in its own way and cynically.
“The Ukrainian foreign policy department received a note from the Russian Foreign Affairs department about the intention of Russia to send humanitarian aid to Donbass and Lugansk region, and also possibly to other regions where there are refugees. Moscow turned to Kiev with a request for assistance in implementing this humanitarian act” reported the media on 28 June. Thus the Russian foreign affairs department clearly expressed the attitude of the Russian authorities towards rebellious Donbass. The Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics as before do not exist in the eyes of the Russian bourgeoisie, although the oligarch Poroshenko who came to power on the blood of the working people is their friend and absolute “legally elected” head of state. In the Russian media, the DPR and LPR as before are still being called “self-proclaimed” and the punitive operation carried on by the Kiv junta, an anti-terrorist operation. Also the towns of Slavyansk, Alchevsk and others are called “Ukrainian”.
In addition, the Kiev junta quite predictably rejected the proposed humanitarian assistance. “Today, on 28 June, the Russian government was sent a note of reply in which it points out the impossibility of accepting this “humanitarian assistance” (in quotation marks too – auth), considering the uncertainty of the final addressee”, reported the Ukrainian media.
Aid to the people of Donbass in the form of food, medicine, equipment and other items are being provided by many volunteers. The people of Rostov, Astrakhansky, Ryazansky and other regions as well as the North Caucasus and Republic of Crimea have been providing aid. Mothers with their childrem fleeing Ukrainian territory (often under fire from the junta forces) are temporarily residing in private houses, kindergardens and rest homes. What will happen to them in Autumn when the weather grows colder is still unknown
The Kiev junta not only not recognises the people of the DPR and LPR fleeing the war with refugee status, but has filtration (ethnic cleansing) camps set up for them. Acting minister for defence of Ukaine Mikhail Koval at a session of the Cabinet of ministers on 11 June declared, that “special filtration measures” are in place for the people of the South-East of Ukraine, the result of which people will be dispersed to various regions. The minister underlined that “all of the adult population of the rebellious regions including women will be sent to these filtration camps”. Already refugees from Donbass in order to gain the possibility of getting a job in Ukrainian towns must agree to special forces checking up on their “suitability” and not hold any “sympathies towards the terrorists”.
The bourgeois government of the Russian Federation continues to trade with the junta because of Kyiv discounts on gas supplies, ignoring the murders in the Southeast and military provocations on the border. There are several cases in which from the Ukrainian side into Russia flew shells fired by the junta troops. The border at different times has been violated by two Ukrainian army APCs and a helicopter. On June 28 from the Ukrainian side the KPP "Gukovo" in the Rostov region was fired on. Furthermore, in a combat zone, Russian journalists were killed by militants of the Kiev junta.
Against this background, on June 24 Vladimir Putin appealed to the Federation Council to revoke the decision about the entering of the Russian troops into Ukraine from March 1, 2014. According to this decision, Russian troops could be introduced into Ukraine "until the normalization of the political situation in this country." This news immediately caused a revival in financial circles. The official indicator of the Russian stock market - the RTS index - rose by 2 per cent compared to June 23. It is interesting that on the eve of his address to the Federation Council, Vladimir Putin spoke on the phone with Barack Obama. The Federation Council granted the request of Putin. Poroshenko also endorsed the decision of the Russian president.
Now there is no doubt that Putin will not be going in to save Donbass. And, apparently, there was never any intention of going in from the start. After all, the Russian bourgeoisie have their protege and representative which the president of the Russian Federation, with the Ukrainian bourgeoisie, which at the moment is officially Poroshenko and have common class interests. There is no, nor can there be any common interests between the bourgeoisie and the miners and metallurgists of Donbass fighting against fascism.
The oligarchy – whether it be Russian or Ukrainian or any other, will never act on the side of the working people. And the more the rebels consistently implement the abolition of private property, the more resolutely and fiercer the bourgeoisie will act to suppress the proletarian uprising.
The enterprises of Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov on the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic will be nationalized. This was stated by the chairman of the Supreme Council of the Donetsk People's Republic, Denis Pushilin on June 29 in Donetsk. "These enterprises were built by many generations of our ancestors. I think it will be a fair solution, "- said Pushilin. Earlier, under the control of the republic were already passed the Donetsk Railway, a number of mines and metallurgical plants, and more recently the People's Militia fighters took control of Donetsk Chemical plant.
If the policy of nationalization of the means of production will continue uncompromisingly by the authorities of Novorossiya, sooner or later that will lead to the need for the country to introduce elements of a socialist system.
In the meantime, the situation remains severe. The defensive war against fascism every day takes on a more pronounced class character, and in this war, the working people of the insurgent Donbass can confidently rely not on the oligarchs with their hypocritical promises, but only on their own, proletarian solidarity and military aid of volunteer international brigades that are actively forming in different countries (including Russia), and many are already in place in Novorossiya, in the most "hotspot" of the planet.
The slogan "Workers of all countries, unite!" today, in connection with developments in the Donbass, has acquired special urgency.

E.A. Fatyanova, Secretary of the CC AUCPB

Required afterword:
While in the Southeast fierce fighting in underway with the Kiev junta, one of the largest multinational companies - "Shell" – is starting to develop shale deposits in the Kharkov region. Already in September 2014 will begin the active phase of the drilling of two wells for shale gas. This was stated by First Deputy Head of Kharkov Regional State Administration, Igor Rainin.
At present, work is being completed to assess the environmental and social environment in the area of the Yuzovsky field. At the beginning of September is planned regional geophysical surveys and drilling of two exploratory wells.
“Shell” is engaged in two separate projects for exploration and production of shale gas in Ukraine. The first project is being explored in the Pervomaisky district of Kharkov region. A joint venture agreement between “Shell” and the company "Ukrgasdobycha" on this site was signed in 2006. The company intends to invest in the project up to $ 200 million. The second project by “Shell” is exploration and production of gas at Yuzovsky site, partly located on the territory of the DPR. In developing the Yuzovsky field, investment up to $ 50 billion is planned. That is the price of the blood spilled by civilians of Donbass that world imperialism is willing to pay!
Yuzovsky district includes Kramatorsk, Slovyansk, Krasny Liman - places where the most fierce fighting is taking place by the Donbass people's defence force against the troops of the Kiev junta.
An agreement on product distribution for exploration, development and production of hydrocarbons at Yuzovsky field between the Anglo-Dutch oil and gas group «Royal Dutch Shell» and «Nadra Yuzovsky" was signed on January 24, 2013 in Davos, with the participation of Viktor Yanukovych.
Meanwhile, Kharkov region is a hotbed of resistance to Ukrainian fascism. Success of the peoples Resistance is haunting the imperialists, who (as we have already seen in an example of Donbass) will do anything for gaining super profits.
In Kharkov itself and across the region, the Ukrainian Special Forces (SBU) are carrying out purges against protest activists, including kidnappings. Since early April, into the local fascist dungeons have been thrown more than 300 people. The situation is similar in Mariupol, Odessa and other cities.
On June 29 in Chuguyivske district of Kharkov region, unknown individuals blew up a railway bridge just before the passage of a train from Russia. A disaster was avoided. According to the local Resistance, "the blowing up of the railway bridge in the Chuguyivske district of Kharkiv region was sabotage aimed at destabilizing and discrediting the guerrilla movement in the rear, by the Ukrainian fascists. Most likely, it was carried out by militants of the group "Right Sector" or similar organizations. "In fact the explosion brought about opening a criminal case under the article "terrorist attack." Probably so, as in this way, the Nazi authorities will be preparing the ground for the unleashing of a new punitive operation or expansion of its so-called "ATO" * in Kharkov region, to finally crush all resistance of the working people and clear the way for shale gas for the European imperialists.

Statement in support of the Bulgarian Communist comrade A.A. Mayevsky

CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE
BULGARIAN WORKERS' PARTY (COMMUNIST)

To the General Secretary of the CC AUCPB
Comrade Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva

Dear Nina Alexandrovna!
The Central Committee of the BWP(C) expresses its concern and indignation at persecution of Secretary of the CC AUCPB for Ukraine, Moldova and Transdniestria, chief editor of "Workers 'and Peasants' Truth" Anatoly Arkadevich Mayevsky.
For us, Comrade Mayevsky is a reliable ally in the fight of all Communists in the world against the anti-peoples criminal power of capitalism, a defender of the rights of workers and the oppressed. We are happy receive, distribute and cherish the newspaper which he publishes and sends us. Every word of truth and experience in fighting by the Soviet Communists-Bolsheviks under repression and assault on workers' rights is valuable for us. We note with interest discuss the honestly, thoroughly and scientifically written and published book by Comrade.Mayevsky "The U.S. Armed Forces." We understand how difficult it is for the Bolsheviks to work under the ever-increasing onslaught of capitalism and imperialism. And we salute the feat of the Bolsheviks, who have not departed from the principles bequeathed by generations of Soviet fighters. Some of these merits, of course, belong to the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (AUCPB). Bolshevik words are very necessary and important to all of us Communists of all countries of the world, and steer our positions and directions of our struggle. This is a fork in the world communist movement.
Every day we see the scale of the tragedy of the loss of the Soviet Union and socialism. We also understand that the fight is becoming fiercer and sharper. Capitalism again adopts its latest weapon - fascism. On the eve of the opening of the first session of the International Peoples Tribunal at Nuremberg, in a conversation with the Soviet writer Boris Polevoy, hero of Leipzig, Bulgarian Communist Georgi Dimitrov said that there is no weapon more rational for the forces of capitalism than fascism, but that it allows the capitalists of the world to shuffle people like a deck of cards, and have dissidents burned in crematoria.
We must remember this and look for new methods and ways to combat this evil. U.S. imperialism, in creating its own scenarios for world domination, has adopted the inhuman plans of Hitler's Reich, applying them on a large scale division of peoples through nationalist ideas, vicious mass culture, perversion of history, etc. In my last article, the American political scientist Bzhezinsky detailed the U.S. plans against Russia, not forgetting to mention that it does not comply with international laws on non-force in solving territorial problems, and unwilling to accept the "modern natural development of relations between the sexes." Savagery and inhumanity of these claims suggests that global capitalism is ready for the most desperate acts to preserve its power and subordination of all countries of the world to its interests.
We are shocked by the fact that all of Ukrainian people who are a brotherly people to us have fallen victim to deception and illusion, giving themselves up to the intrigues of world capitalism. We, Bulgarians, who have tried at the “goodness" of the "free world" would never have advised Ukrainians to walk in our footsteps. We lost our beautiful homeland, and we are now losing our children, who roam throughout the world in search of food.
We have no doubt that the actions of the Ukrainian authorities against Comrade Mayevsky have been dictated by American specialists, who already feel themselves masters of Ukraine. These actions violate both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948, the UN and the European Convention of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Article 19).
Please pass to Comrade Mayevsky a message that we are ready to help him if he ever came here to Bulgaria, we could start production of the newspaper over here.
Dear Nina Alexandrovna! We wish you and your comrades much energy and courage in our common struggle.

STATEMENT BY THE KOMSOMOL OF POLAND IN CONNECTION WITH NEW PERSECUTIONS OF THE UKRAINIAN COMMUNISTS

The Communist Youth of Poland categorically condemns the persecution of Comrade Mayevsky - Editor of "Workers 'and Peasants' Truth" and activist in the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks by the Bandera junta ruling in Kiev.
We express our solidarity with your struggle for the revival of the Soviet Union and the friendship between the brotherly peoples of the former socialist countries. Just like all true Polish patriots, we express our deep sorrow and are ashamed because of the criminal intrigue of the Polish regime that under the U.S. diktat supports the Nazi murderers in their bloody endeavours.
We - young Polish communists, are united with you by the immortal science of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin – and wish you heartily resistance, hardness and unyielding victory over the brown terror. Terror that knows no boundaries and who is able to touch any fighter for truth and peace.

FURTHER INFORMATION FROM THE EDITORIAL OF WORKERS’ PEASANTS’ TRUTH ON THE "A. MAYEVSKY CASE"

Persecuted FOR BOLSHEVIK TRUTH, on 5 June, the editor of "Workers' and Peasants Truth" received a call from correspondent of TV channel "Inter" Marina Koval, to interview the editor, Comrade AA. Mayevsky. Naturally, the editor agreed to give such an interview, whose primary objective was to achieve a breakthrough in the information blockade that has developed around the activities of our party in Ukraine - the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks, as well as the newspaper.
The next day, the crew of TV channel arrived at the editor’s door which is a flat. A.Maevsky gave an interview, which lasted about 45 minutes.
In the evening news program of TV channel "Inter", this interview was shown. But it was shown in a completely distorted way and with the sole purpose - to distort the position of the newspaper and defame it. The interview started with a demonstration of "casual readers" of the newspaper from Uzhgorod, who were outraged that the newspaper being distributed including through the Transcarpathian office of Ukrposhty (kiosks already received 50 copies of the newspaper!), writes the truth about the events happening in the South-East Ukraine, against the inhabitants of which (Odessa, Donetsk and Luhansk regions) the regime has unleashed a real war of extermination. Dissatisfaction of those "readers" was also made worse by the first page of a newspaper with a portrait of Comrade J.V. Stalin - an outstanding statesman, leader of the world's first proletarian state of workers and peasants - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the portraits of proletarian leaders of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin. And these, I may say are readers turning to special law enforcement bodies of Ukraine with the question, and where to look and whether it is time to carry out prosecution of the editor of the newspaper itself. That is, in fact, the crew of TV channel "Inter" acted as a state security structure with a predetermined accusation against the newspaper.
Mayevsky was shown on TV less than a minute in the interview. However, and for that moment the editor could bring viewers to the fact that our party has been fighting for the revival of the Soviet Union, and that the ruling regime in Ukraine is of Bandera-fascist character and that the newspaper works on a volunteer basis together with the paper itself published by Editorial, and distributed on a social basis funded by readers.
A week later (June 14) his flat was raided by officers of the SBU in the Transcarpathian region amounting to four people and two witnesses who searched the apartment seized a laptop, printer, printing equipment, and preparatory materials for the sixth issue of the newspaper. A search was conducted on the basis of the decision of the regional court of Uzhgorod 12.06., at the request of the Office of the SBU in the Transcarpathian region to conduct a pre-trial investigation of criminal proceedings on the grounds of an offence under article 161, part 1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. In accordance with this article, the editorial, based on the "analysis" of the materials published in the "WPT» № 6 (207), conducted by the SBU, faces charges of inciting ethnic hatred? The search continued for four hours. Immediately the editor was discharged a note of summons for questioning as a witness (?) on June 16 in Transcarpathian HQ of the SBU.
On 16 June, Mayevsky was questioned for about four hours. During the interrogation, the editor sought to show that there is no incitement of ethnic hatred in the materials of the newspaper and that the newspaper aims to convey to readers the truth about the events taking place in the South-East of Ukraine, and exposes the ruling regime, which unleashed a war to destroy its own people.
On June 18 at a meeting of Uzhgorod city district court, where the question of the seizure of the confiscated property during a search was raised. Despite the statement of Comrade, Mayevsky that the police had violated his constitutional rights, in particular, under Art. 34 of the Constitution: "Everyone shall be guaranteed the right to freedom of thought and speech and to freely express their views and beliefs. Everyone has the right to collect, store, use and disseminate information orally, in writing or otherwise - of their choice. The exercise of these rights may be restricted by law ... "; a newspaper that only a court can ban; that the removal of office equipment prevents the lawful professional activities of journalists, which is a criminal offence under Art. 171 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - the court decided to arrest the property seized.
Those in power and those serving them in their service at the SBU and judicial system as a whole, were frightened of the Bolshevik truth and will do everything in order to prevent further publication of the newspaper, and to complete the prosecution of its editor.
On further developments, as long as we get the chance, we will inform our readers.

EDITORIAL "Workers and Peasants 'Truth'

P.S Since then, Comrade Mayevsky has raised a complaint to the courts on the confiscation of his equipment. The court ruled in his favour to return his property, however he is still waiting for the return of his equipment. (FB)

SPOKESMAN FOR NDC POLICY DEPARTMENT DENOUNCES U.S., S. KOREAN AUTHORITIES FOR RECKLESS MILITARY MOVES
Pyongyang, July 12 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK Saturday released the following statement:
The U.S. is always preoccupied with aggression and interference.
On Friday the U.S. suddenly hurled the flotilla of the nuclear carrier George Washington into the Pusan Port of south Korea again.
That day the group of Aegis Destroyer Kid under the Third Fleet of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces entered the Tonghae Port of south Korea.
What is surprising is that these pirate warship groups entered the south Korean ports at the earnest request of the south Korean puppet authorities and amid their noisy welcome though they should have thought twice before doing so.
It was reported that those groups would stage a "drill to intercept planes" accompanied by naval maneuvers targeted against the DPRK together with the south Korean naval force in the South and East seas of Korea from July 16.
From July 22 they mull staging a large naval joint drill in waters off Jeju Island with warships of the Japanese aggression forces involved.
What should not be overlooked is that these grave maneuvers are slated to take place in defiance of the special proposal sent by the NDC of the DPRK to the south Korean authorities for improving the north-south relations and ensuring peace on the Korean peninsula and a meaningful statement issued by the DPRK government.
The planned reckless military actions of the U.S. and south Korea are another open challenge to the sincere efforts of the army and people of the DPRK to defuse the tension on the peninsula and create peaceful atmosphere.
They are, at the same time, a blatant effrontery to chill the desire and wishes of all Koreans to mend the north-south relations and achieve national reconciliation and cooperation.
In February, too, the U.S. sent a formation of nuclear-capable strategic bombers to south Korea, deliberately creating a phase of confrontation when there was a sign of reconciliation between the north and the south.
Whenever there was a sign of improving the north-south relations and detente on the peninsula, the U.S. resorted to sinister interference and obstructions.
These actions on the part of the U.S. were prompted by its scenario to retain a grip on south Korea and Japan and lay a siege to the continent in a bid to keep an unchallenged edge in the Asia-Pacific region.
What matters is that the south Korean puppet forces steeped in sycophancy and submission are pursuing this sinister scenario of the U.S. and persistently introducing nuclear strike means of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces, making constant nuclear blackmail and posing serious threat to compatriots.
However, the army and people of the DPRK are not afraid of the U.S. nuclear blackmail and threat little short of its "gunboat diplomacy" in the last century.
The U.S. should properly understand that the more persistently it resorts to reckless nuclear blackmail and threat, the further the DPRK will bolster up its cutting edge nuclear force for self-defence always ready to go into action.
The south Korean puppet forces would be well advised not to miscalculate that their act of depending on the U.S. and toeing its line is the only way out for them. They should come to their senses and seek a way out from the standpoint of attaching importance to the nation and giving priority to it.
They should bear in mind that now is the time to make a proper option at the present when various issues between the north and the south are high on agenda.
The U.S. and south Korean authorities should always remember that the army and people of the DPRK together with the world people are watching with high vigilance their anachronistic reckless military moves.

DPRK GOVERNMENT STATEMENT CALLS FOR ENDING CONFRONTATION AND IMPROVING NORTH-SOUTH TIES
Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) -- The government of the DPRK released the following statement Monday, 20 years since President Kim Il Sung left his last signature on a historic document related to Korea's reunification.
The Korean nation's cause for national reunification is undergoing big difficulties and trials due to the vicious challenge and obstructive moves of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad, the statement said.
The DPRK government clarifies as follows out of its patriotic desire to tide over the difficulties lying before the nation, improve the north-south relations and open up a fresh turning phase for independent reunification at present:
1. The north and the south should end reckless hostility and confrontation and open up the road for reconciliation and unity.
The grave situation in which even a single remark and act and tiny friction may lead to a dangerous conflict and destruction of the nation is prevailing on the Korean peninsula as hostility and confrontation have reached the extremes.
We should no longer remain a passive on-looker to this tragic situation in which exhaustive political strife among compatriots may cause tremendous catastrophe of the nation at a crucial time when all the Koreans should pool their strength and wisdom for the cause common to the nation.
The north and the south should open up the road for improvement of relations from fresh viewpoint and stand for the destiny of the nation.
The south Korean authorities should discard the anachronistic concept of hostility and make a bold decision to change its policy for confrontation with fellow countrymen into that for alliance and reconciliation with the north.
They should stop all kinds of the north-targeted war exercises which they conduct with outsiders, a direct product of their hostile policy toward the fellow countrymen in the north.
If they have true willingness to improve the relations with the north, they should opt for respecting and implementing the north-south agreements including the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration which were provided thanks to the top leaders of the north and the south.
2. The north and the south should reject dependence on outsiders and settle all issues by the efforts of Koreans.
The north and the south should never fall a victim to outsiders keen on catching fish in troubled waters through the division of Korea.
They should solve all issues by their own efforts in the common interests of the nation from the stand of putting the nation above all, attaching importance to the nation and achieving national unity.
The north and the south should never tolerate the unreasonable act of outsiders to interfere in the internal issue of the nation but counter it with joint efforts.
We will join hands with all those including the south Korean authorities if they take the stand of settling the issue of the north-south relations and the reunification issue of the country in line with the desire and wish of the nation.
3. The north and the south should seek reasonable reunification proposals supported by all Koreans and that guarantee the prosperity common to the nation.
There is increasing demand and requirement of fellow countrymen to achieve reunification through federal formula in Korea where differing ideologies and social systems exist.
In the June 15 joint declaration the north and the south recognized that there are common points in the north-proposed low-level federation and the south-proposed confederation, and agreed to work for reunification in this direction in the future.
The north and the south should specify the reunification proposals by way of federation and confederation and make efforts to realize them and thus actively promote co-existence, co-prosperity and common interests.
4. The north and the south should create the atmosphere favorable for the improvement of the north-south relations.
To actively create the atmosphere favorable for reconciliation and unity at present is a prerequisite for improving the extremely deteriorated north-south relations.
It is necessary to put an end to all kinds of calumnies and vituperations that foster misunderstanding and distrust among the fellow countrymen, to begin with.
Legal and institutional measures that block kindred bonds and compatriotic feelings between the north and the south should be lifted and a broad avenue for contacts, visits, cooperation and dialogue should be opened.
An end should be put at an early date to such an abnormal situation in south Korea in which the desire of the people from all walks of life for reunification is dampened and the hostility against the DPRK is incited through the racket for "eliminating forces following the north".
If the above-mentioned principled stand of the DPRK and measures taken by it in good faith are implemented, an epochal occasion will be provided in normalizing the deteriorated north-south ties, easing the situation on the Korean peninsula and achieving the national reconciliation and unity.
We express the expectation that all Koreans would actively support the principled stand of the DPRK government that was prompted by its noble sense of responsibility to improve the north-south ties and open up a wide avenue for independent reunification and that the south Korean authorities would positively respond to it.



NDC OF DPRK SENDS SPECIAL PROPOSAL TO S. KOREAN AUTHORITIES
Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK sent the following special proposal to the south Korean authorities on Monday:
The continued state of frozen north-south relations is making the wounds of the territorial division ever deeper and the nation's cherished desire for reunification has reached such a phase that can no longer be overlooked.
The three principles of national reunification which the north and the south agreed upon to adhere to before the nation and even the ennobling spirit of By Our Nation Itself have been ruthlessly violated. This is the present tragic reality.
True to the noble intention of the peerless patriot to set right this painful situation, the DPRK side sent a crucial proposal and an open letter to the south Korean authorities, political parties and social organizations only to receive a cool response.
The valuable agreement reached at the north-south high-level contact, which was arranged with much effort in February, is being reduced to a dead document.
The blame for this rests with all members of the nation responsible for setting right this painful reality as they are responsible for their own destiny.
But greater responsibility rests with the south Korean authorities who have mocked at the reunification issue by making far-fetched assertions and making public sham declarations, keen on confrontation only, in utter disregard of the north-south relations that have turned more serious.
The people of different social standings are becoming more vocal demanding the improvement of the north-south relations against this backdrop and their desire to open up a fresh phase of reconciliation, cooperation and peaceful reunification has become an irresistible trend of the times.
This enthusiasm is growing stronger across the 3 000-ri land of Korea with the approach of the 42nd anniversary of the July 4 joint statement and July 7, the 20th anniversary of the event in which President Kim Il Sung, the lodestar of the nation and the great political elder, signed a historical document on the north-south summit in the last moments of his great life.
This enthusiasm is becoming unquenchable as diverse political and technical contacts on reconciliation and cooperation expected between the north and the south from July, in particular, draw public attention.
The NDC of the DPRK makes the following special proposal to the south Korean authorities, prompted by its firm resolution to bring about a fresh phase in the improvement of the north-south relations on the three principles of independence, peace and the great national unity and in the spirit of By Our Nation Itself, in reflection of the desire of the nation and the wishes of all Koreans:
1. Let us promise the nation once again to invariably adhere to the principle of independence and solve all pending issues, big or small, between the north and the south on the principle.
The principle of independence is one of the basic principles for national reunification which was agreed upon before the nation in reflection of the nation's desire and wish.
This principle calls for settling all issues, big or small, arising in relations between the north and the south including the reunification issue with their concerted efforts from the stand of attaching importance to the nation and giving priority to it without relying on foreign forces or allowing their interference.
We reached the agreement on north-south reconciliation, cooperation and non-aggression and adopted the historic June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration on this principle.
Hence, we propose promising once again all fellow countrymen to preserve and thoroughly implement all statements, declarations and agreements concluded between the north and the south on the principle of independence on the occasion of the 42nd anniversary of the July 4 joint statement.
At the same time, we urge the south Korean authorities to completely withdraw all their far-fetched "assertions" and sham "declarations" contrary to the principle of independence and totally abolish all cooperation mechanisms violating the interests of the fellow countrymen.
We courteously advise them not to resort any longer to such harmful acts as taking issue with the DPRK's nuclear deterrence, a valuable common asset of the nation, and slandering its line of simultaneously developing the two fronts by toeing outside forces' line.
For the present, we call on them to make a policy decision to completely stop all sorts of mud-slinging at the other side and totally cease all psychological and conspiratorial acts from 00:00 of July 4, as was agreed upon between the north and the south at their high-level contact in February from the stand of giving importance to the nation and giving priority to it on the principle of independence.
We are ready to implement the February agreement at once as we have already clarified.
2. Let's show all Koreans and the world a resolute decision to completely stop all military hostile acts of pushing the north-south relations to the brink of a war and to create a peaceful atmosphere on the principle of peaceful reunification.
The principle of peaceful reunification is the basic principle for the country's reunification reflecting the desire of all peace-loving Koreans opposed to a war.
It also fully reflects the patriotic spirit to protect the cradle of the compatriots from a war disaster and ensure the prosperity common to the nation.
On this principle, we have consistently maintained the stand to settle all issues arising in the north-south relations in a peaceful way, not by military hostile acts.
This is because all these matters are internal issues of the nation under any circumstances however complicated they are. They should be, therefore, settled by the Koreans themselves any time as they are to live in harmony in a reunified land.
Availing of this opportunity, we once again propose the south Korean authorities to clarify their true and candid stand to ensure the peace of the country by totally stopping all ceaseless military hostile acts in all areas along the line of confrontation including the hotspot waters in the West Sea of Korea from 00:00 of July 4.
This proposal includes the issue of stopping the intrusions into waters being escalated by south Korean navy warships recently and the frequent firing of bullets and shells in the waters around the five islands.
We, at the same time, demand an end to the acts of blackmailing and threatening the fellow countrymen by introducing U.S. nuclear strike means such as nuclear-capable strategic bombers and super-large nuclear-powered carriers into south Korea and its vicinity and immediately cancel its plan for the joint military exercise Ulji Freedom Guardian to be staged with the U.S. in August this year so as to create in advance the atmosphere of various exchanges and contacts to be brisk between the north and the south including the Inchon Asian Games.
This is because the said joint military exercise pushes the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war as it is a drill for a war of aggression targeting the DPRK under the pretext of "annual and defensive drill."
The war drills staged by the south Korean authorities together with the U.S. are the most undisguised and wanton violation of the principle of national reunification which calls for settling all the issues arising between the north and the south in a peaceful way without recourse to the use of force of arms.
If they consider the joint drills with the U.S. as indispensable, they had better stage them in the area and waters beyond the territory of the Korean peninsula as already clarified by the DPRK.
Many neighboring countries desire joint exercises with the Korean People's Army recently, but it will never move with foreign armies in the air, waters and land of the DPRK, complying with their requests.
3. Let's take practical steps for bringing about a new turning phase of reconciliation, cooperation and national prosperity in the spirit of By Our Nation Itself and on the principle of the great national unity.
Unity is the nation's mode of existence and an engine for improving the inter-Korean relations.
The nation should be placed above ideology, ism and social system.
When both sides pool efforts on the principle of the great national unity in the above-said spirit irrespective of all differences, the national reunification will come earlier than expected.
It is the destiny of the Korean nation that if it remains divided, it is bound to go to ruin and if it becomes one, it will grow strong.
The DPRK proposes taking practical steps for bringing about a new turning phase of reconciliation and cooperation on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the signing of the historic document of the north-south summit by President Kim Il Sung, the lodestar of the Korean nation, on July 7, 1994, the last period of his great life.
The south Korean authorities should declare, first of all, they will not seek any sinister political aim in reconciliation and cooperation.
The reconciliation and cooperation between compatriots should be guaranteed by the sincere practical actions for them from A to Z.
Nothing is a more foolish behavior than abusing reconciliation and cooperation reflecting sincere compatriotism as fig-leaf for covering up the attempt to bring down the other's social system and the scenario for achieving "unification through absorption".
If the south Korean authorities refuse to accept the sincere offer for reconciliation and cooperation or block the way of achieving them, away from the compatriotic approach and stand based on the principle of great national unity, this will amount to the most hideous treason.
One should not scheme to use the order of passage, customs clearance and communication for sinister purpose in the Kaesong Industrial Zone, too.
An epochal phase of improving the inter-Korean relations lies in preserving the spirit of By Our Nation Itself and the principle of the great national unity.
The south Korean authorities should come to their senses.
They should approach neither the fellow countrymen through tinted classes given by foreign forces nor the inter-Korean relations with heads engrossed by sycophancy and submission.They should bear in mind that if they give priority to the nation before outsiders and attach importance to fellow countrymen before international cooperation, they can pave a wide avenue for national reunification, peace and prosperity. It is our stand that all the Koreans in the north, the south and abroad should give vent to their indignation and turn out with the will not to make the nation's history of division of disgrace and tragedy last any longer. The rise and fall of the country and the life and death of the nation hinge on the will of the north and the south. In response to our special proposal, the south Korean authorities should make a bold policy decision and take a great stride towards new future with the will to resolutely break with the inglorious past.
They should not forget that the crucial July is watching their movement.
