The All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (AUCPB), inheriting Bolshevik principles of the R.S.D.W.P. -R.S.D.W.P.(b) - A.U.C.P.(b) - of Lenin's policiy in the CPSU, is the highest form of proletarian class organisation, advanced detachment of the working class, acting in unity with the peasantry and labour intelligentsia, standing on the Party's positions for: the gain of political power - overthrowing the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie and establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, the destruction of private ownership over the instuments and means of production, the revival of the USSR, the further strenghtening of the proletarian interests for the complete victory of socialism and gradual transition to communism. The ideological and theoretical basis of the AUCPB is formed by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, is their doctrine in its creative application and development in modern conditions. The AUCPB is a component of the global communist movement with the aim of communism triumphing over the whole planet.

For Bolshevism - September 2015

Workers of all countries, unite!



On July 26 this year, we received news from Rome, that on July 21, our close friend of the AUCPB Comrade Stefano Trochini had died. Comrade Stefano Trochini for many years worked at the Soviet Embassy in Rome, and after the destruction of the Soviet Union remained a true communist, a fighter for socialism. Fluent in the Russian language, he was a dedicated translator of documents of the CC AUCPB and our other party materials from Russian into Italian. He was also a distributor of our documents and communist ideas among employees, students and teachers of the University of Rome.
The demise of our Italian friend we perceive as a huge loss for our party.
We express our deepest condolences to the family, friends and comrades of Stefano Trochini.
Nina Andreeva
General Secretary of the CC AUCPB

The Ministry of Justice of Ukraine issued an act by which the Communist Party of Ukraine and two other communist parties that exist in the country legally lose the opportunity to participate in the political life of the state, including in the electoral process, reported the head of the NSDC of Ukraine Alexander Turchinov.
"Today, the Minister of Justice in accordance with the law adopted by the Parliament signed a decision, according to which communist parties which currently exist in our country, lose the right to be subject of political and electoral processes," - he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday.
The head of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine Pavel Petrenko in turn confirmed that on his orders he had quashed the status and rights of the Communist Party of Ukraine, the Communist Party (renovated) and the Workers’ and Peasants’ Communist Party of Ukraine.
"After the adoption of the laws (on decommunisation - IF) an independent commission has been established, which within a month checked for compliance by the three communist parties in Ukraine - the Communist Party, the Communist Party (renovated) and the Workers’ and Peasants’ Communist Party of Ukraine. Based on the findings of the commission, I have signed three orders that determine that the Communist Party of Ukraine, in particular, in their activities in the name, in the symbolism, the statute and the program does not meet the requirements of Part 2 of Article 3 of the Law "On the condemnation of the Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and the prohibition of propaganda of their symbols", said Petrenko at a briefing in Kiev on Friday.
According to the Minister, these parties to this day can not be a subject of the electoral process and can not participate in the political life of the country.
He stressed that the Ministry of Justice will lead the process of banning all Communist Parties to its logical conclusion and adopting the corresponding court decision.

On 20 July at 10:30 in the city district court of the city of Uzhgorod (Zakarpattia region) the court case was held of the editor of the newspaper "Workers' and Peasants truth" A.A. Mayevsky
Since judge A.N. Ferenc is currently on leave, the case is not considered a matter of fact, but only to extend the next sentence in jail of Mayevsky. Judge Dergacheva Natalia was appointed to preside. Present were attorney V.I. Shlyakhta, lawyer A.N. Kovalenko and the accused A.A. Mayevsky.
In the hall were the readers of the newspaper "Workers’ and Peasants’ Pravda", members of the All-Ukrainian Union of Workers, and members of the Workers’ Party of Ukraine (ML), communists.
The judge announced the start of the court session. Prosecutor V.I. Shlyakhta essentially asked the Court to leave Mayevsky in custody in jail because of the risk of resumption of activities and publication of the newspaper.
A. Mayevsky made a statement: "I request that you cancel the decision to hold me in custody but instead, hold me under house arrest. There “will” be no risk in continuing the issue of the newspaper because a law was passed banning entire communist symbols. Therefore all the newspapers thus subject to the law have automatically been closed down. What it was printed in the newspaper was the truth. I'm not a separatist. Ukraine is falling apart due to the fault of the nationalists and the authorities. Initially, the Crimea, the war in Donbass, in turn Bukovina, since Moldova and Romania already negotiated a merger. In Donbass up to 50 thousand people have already been killed. And what next? I am here with no means of communication. My letters do not reach even the relatives. So just in the last month, my wife did not get 3 of my letters. No radio, newspapers and television. Some newspapers I get only through a lawyer, since I have forbidden to get newspapers by hand or postal means."
Judge N.V. Dergacheva asked: "How old are you? Where did you work? By which means is your family and children living?"
Mayevsky replies: "I am 66 years old. I'm a military retiree. My children are independent and live with their own families."
Judge : "What health complaints do you have? What diseases do you suffer from? "
Mayevsky : "At the moment I feel well".
From the courtroom : "We bring to you medicines for high pressure, and for the liver, and Nospanum".
Judge : "Do you have glaucoma ???"
Mayevsky. It's in the past, now I'm healthy, and Nospanum I took a month ago.
(during his stay in custody, for the first time the question was asked by judge Dergacheva, transferred from Lugansk region, on the state of health, and the age of the defendant ).
Lawyer H. Kovalenko asked. "Please grant the request by A. Mayevsky for his release from detention and ttransfer to house arrest pending trial. There is no risk of resumption of publication of the newspaper, since the passing of the law on the prohibition of communist symbols on all the newspapers, including the edited by A.A. Mayevsky newspaper, being covered by this law is already shut down."
The judge retired to the deliberation room to make a decision.
The decision: to refuse A.A. Mayevsky’s request to release him from detention and place under house arrest until the court essentially because of the severity of the crime. The defendant could face for the act from 5 to 10 years in prison with confiscation of property.
Information prepared by a freelance reporter for the newspaper "WPT" 23/07/2015

Vladimir Ryabov

A version of the Russian "Volga" car in the late '90s was identified and proposed for use by Russian officials by Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov, while expressing a rough intention "to transfer to the Volga" all supporters of the authorities, including the State Duma. Characteristically also is the fact that Nemtsov himself rode in the domestic Volga showing an example of a high "patriotism", completely absent in the bureaucracy, which had crossed over completely to foreign cars. However, with no lack of information provision, to the high bureaucracy, it soon became clear that the performance of the Volga used by the deputy head of the government, inside the stuffing of the car, including the engine, everything was of foreign production. As a result of the Russian assembly on the high official’s Volga, there was only one body, that is, a coating, which gave the car a domestic flavour. In fact, Nemtsov’s car has an inner content of a Russian liberal (foreign - fb), and which is ostensibly covered over with the car’s apparent (Russian - fb) domestic appearance.
It's been more than fifteen years, and on Russian roads, especially in their proximity to the mega-cities, the number of western cars has only increased, forcing off the road the Volga car produced at the Nizhny Novgorod automobile plant as well as the Lada, produced by the Volga car plant (VAZ) in Togliatti. Moreover, until recently the Liberals tied progress in the automotive industry with the belief in the power of the world market, as a symbol of the total capital, and saw it as a remedy for all the ills on the Russian roads. It instilled a spirit of confidence in our Volga and Lada, which lacked reliability in units and parts used in Western technology for their production. It took just to buy Western technology for use by domestic manufacturers to use them to stuff the domestic units and details with heroic toughness. At the turn of two centuries to the emotion of western novelties from the man in the street, and it seemed that the prospect of the Russian car industry will be solved via the market once and for all. At that time, the market public of Russia still dreamed about their domestic Volga and Ladas, relying on their own market opportunities to bring the car industry to manufacture the world's best quality samples, notable for the attention of international stars.
But the global market was not a supply base on which to outfit all applications. In general, the global market for all the time of its close study, turned out to be an expression of a small group of people interested in high profits, based on the commercial secrets of everything in production whose technology is in high demand. And now on the Russian roads it is easier to meet drivers of foreign cars calling for order and for someone like Stalin in power, rather than see in domestic cars reliable components and spare parts that meet the demands of technical progress.
What then has happened? After all, at the start of the Western automotive industry and the Soviet automobile industry, which began in the aftermath of World War II, Stalin's models of Soviet cars, such as the Pobeda (Victory) and Moskviches, were in no way inferior to their Western counterparts. What took place was a substitution of values. By the mid-60s, Soviet models were discovered to be lagging behind their Western counterparts. And in this situation, what does the Soviet government actually do? The Soviet government, ideologically guided by the "Dnepropetrovsk team" of Leonid Brezhnev takes a sample of the best western car, the FIAT model of 1966, which at the time won the highest rating in the Western press, and transfers it to Soviet soil. The government buys from the owners of Fiat the lauded car together with the production line and funds the construction of a Volga automobile plant in Togliatti.
But by the early '70s, when the Western Fiats hit Soviet streets under the name "Zhiguli", the original Fiat model was by then already obsolete. However, at its base for decades continue to develop six more models of "Zhiguli", where the difference in each amounted to only a slight change in the shape of the body. Stagnation in the production line of VAZ leads to the domination of the sledgehammer, which solves all of the technical problems of the new assembly line. At the same time, at the western car factories, including Fiat, preference is given to the screwdriver and gloves. And in Moscow, meanwhile, the Brezhnev team continued to pray at the Western market, but the market of the West began to put up economic barriers to the USSR, requiring a change of the entire policy of the state. With this, the leading automotive giants of the West began to pray to the Japanese model of the automobile assembly line, taking as a sample of work from the Stakhanov production method of the Soviet Union and transformed into the Japanese way of "quality circles".
In fact, in the global automotive industry the transformation of quantity into quality are beginning to appear in Japanese quality circles, shifting onto their assembly conveyors the character of Soviet aircraft assembly during World War II. At that time, the assembly of Soviet aircraft was headed by G.M. Malenkov. What is natural that after the war this transferred over to the assembly of domestic Pobeda and Moskvich cars. It is this model of the economic tension during the times of Malenkov which the Japanese quality circles were to adopt, achieving energy savings at all stages of the production process of car assembly. As a result, Japan's cars began to get better performance in its class, achieving results with the release of all unnecessary parts and enhancing the reliability of assemblies and components operating in the most extreme conditions. Meanwhile, in the Soviet automotive industry neither Malenkov nor his intense planning system in the economy was needed, nor a high rate of productivity, based on energy saving.
The basics of production planning were needed by the Western conveyor car industry, where, on the contrary, practices of energy savings were adopted based on the significant strengthening of the rate of increase in labour productivity. Leading companies in the United States occupying up to 60% of the economy were completely subordinated to the planning model. In Japan, the planning figure was even higher. Meanwhile, the Brezhnev bureaucracy was completely disappointed with planning and quietly switched over to the "services" of the capitalist market, ostensibly preaching the need for planning in the scientific school. But in reality, the Brezhnev team "drove" across the border "black gold", on the pretext of purchasing additional goods on petrodollars. The result was the casting overboard the hard work to improve productivity, without which the state plan turns into a dummy. Instead of the Stalin energy savings economy, which had been particularly unpleasant to the bureaucracy, the floodgates were opened for the export of "black gold".
As a life-saving argument, the partocracy informally probed the slogan - "everything is decided by the market", in which the initiative for the increase productivity was relegated to the owners of the market. Based on this political innovation, the Soviet automobile industry was to hide the flaws of the internal outdatedness of the cars, by covering the wretched internal content of the cars with decent body styles of their external cladding copied from western bodies (i.e. cheap, faulty imitations – fb).
But in the 1980-s, the laws of energy savings required in the West meant the transfer from the carburettor engine over to the engine with the dosed fuel injection system (injectors), significantly saving the consumption of gasoline per hundred kilometres. Soviet Research Institutes were forced to develop a similar model of the engine, and it came out on the road, replacing the familiar Zhiguli’s with a new name, Lada. However, on the injection engine were a lot of units that began to work independently but the Soviet Research Institutes had nothing reliable to offer and did not try to offer anything, because an increase in the rate of labour productivity was not part of their plans.
One of these units proved to be the petrol pump which had to be purchased in the West. The overall push towards the purchase of the western automotive components and parts increased sharply. In any case, the Western fuel pump at VAZ was installed inside the Soviet domestic fuel pump module where it was not visible.
In the post-Soviet expanse, the arrival of the world market only increased the demand for the purchase of new automotive components, providing for reliable cars on the roads and therefore meant not abandoning demands to procure entire auto-assembly lines, as was once done with the Fiat conveyer. In fact, nothing prevented the spread of Western assembly lines in plants and branches of leading automakers that streamed along across the post-Soviet expanse. Quite naturally, the "Western partners" were not inclined to share their technology with their partners in Russia, therefore in the new division of labour at the Russian Volga and Lada plants there remained the only chance to survive: low prices. In the shops, low prices were the salvation of morally and physically obsolete units and parts. But the situation on the roads could not but place the cars of the domestic auto industry in a losing position.
Why did Russian motorists begin to move en masse from the domestic Volga and Lada cars over to Western models?
The problem is in the reliability of domestic equipment. Russian equipment often breaks down, creating sometimes very complicated problems for drivers. For even if the weather changes from warm to cold, the Lada driver may have problems with windows misting up. Most often, the reason for this was the breakdown of the fan heater inside the car itself. Russian fan heaters and their reliable performance are the same. Therefore, sitting in the seat and starting the car, the driver immediately notices that nothing can be seen ahead because the driver’s warm breath has been drawn to the coldest part in the driving area, which is the windscreen, and the moisture condenses on this area. And because the fan is not working and the warm air from the heater does not arrive to remove the misting from the windows, then the driver has to solve this problem with misting windows by having to wipe them every minute to see the road ahead. And this remains on average for about half an hour, yet even when driving, the flow of fresh air, under the pressure of coming into the car as a result of movement along the road and passing through the heater through inertia of the car will begin to flow in, is only able to stabilize the temperature regime than eliminate the cause of fogging. But for that half-hour, the behavior of the driver is more like a madman waving a cloth on the glass than a person driving a vehicle.
And such situations in the operation of domestic vehicles occur very often. The reasons are different but all related to the unreliability of domestic units and parts. Because of their unreliability, all respect to the Volga and the Ladas, the constituent colour of the Russian car industry, where the domestic driver would need to be proud of, was undermined.
When driving a western built car, the driver receives a lot of information about the technical condition of the car, because the electronics systems carry volumes of diagnosis of the state of the units and components, which allows one to predict the state of the car and, if necessary, plan a trip to the service station. The driver on the Lada or Volga has no choice but to try to find in stores, foreign analogues of weak domestic units to try to install them under the bonnet of his car and forget about the problems of breakage. Although, of course, on Russian cars it is possible to install electronic diagnosis of a large part of the electronic components and parts, but that places a much heavier price tag on the car. Therefore, when the factory installs an on-board computer in the car, it is directly related to the presence in it of a large number of western units and parts, the diagnostics of which are directly associated with reliability. If the driver him or herself installs an on-board computer and begins to diagnose, then they are faced with the need to replace many parts so the computer itself does not crash from the abundance of alarms.
Why, then, is the reliability of western built cars superior to that of Russian cars? And the point here is that the main role of experts on the western assembly line car perform the notorious "quality circles". As for the Russian assembly line, then the whole initiative is given to research institutes, which are more likely to solve their own scientific problems and not questions on the automotive industry. Besides all these questions automotive design are simply not able to be solved by research institutes, because they would then have had to acquire so many laboratories and test sites for which there are little funding. Of course, in the West, the automotive industry also employs scientists, but between them and the conveyor there is layer of assemblers, which the assembly is not the last role. And these assemblers rely on the very quality circles, which orient their diagnosis in computer performance and robust alloys in building assemblies and parts. In Russia, the layer of experts on a conveyor belt for automotive assembly have to assess the quality of production, and have a rather abstract idea of their work. For a long time on the Soviet assembly were proven people, mostly interested in selling spare parts. The blessing on the assembly line was there was no lack of parts. Such assemblers were not interested in quality automotive products.
Then where did the mature experts there in the west come from and why are they are not in Russia?
Here one must not forget the story of the transformation of the Italian Fiat into the Soviet Zhiguli. Construction of the car factory in Togliatti was accompanied by simultaneous construction of a test circuit near Togliatti, where the Zhiguli were tested. The government in Moscow, then to err, and to get the car off the assembly line with quality, built a race track for the purpose of testing. The VAZ circuit showed itself up in all its glory: no Zhiguli car until the early 90-ies had gone to scrap. All Zhigulis drove on the roads, having mastered the base of spare parts and repairs.
Western carmakers took this experience into account and have moved on. Throughout the twentieth century, on the roads of Europe and the United States a lot of car racing has been conducted. Prestige was given to the Grand Prix of three types of all sorts of "Formula", which has been given priority in sporting achievements. In the early 80s, the situation changed, there appears the racing series "Formula - 1", the commercial rights of which are separated from the sports. Essentially "Formula - 1" became a testing ground on the edge of the permissible capacity of cars, with the original school quality control units and components subjected to critical impact velocity, as well as sharply differing climatic conditions in the field of racing.
At first glance racing series Formula 1 sought purely commercial objectives, spinning near the races and their winners - showing the world the huge billions of dollars. But in reality, the main interest for the owners of automobile empires were technical services to ensure the readiness of vehicles for racing and control of their technical condition for driving on all international routes. In essence, technical services were represented by a variety of Japanese quality circles, tracking the quality of all components and automotive parts, to identify opportunities of metals and alloys to ensure the reliability of the cars in the most critical conditions of high speeds and heavy braking.
Accordingly, the technical services are closely related to both the scientific bases of their production plants, and with the scientific community around the world. Any order for such a service to quickly obtained an expression or mathematical model and new electronic circuits or in technical terms, new units and parts. A race track for fast cars quickly identify the pros and cons of new products introduced. The economic component of the races has also established its own rules, providing commercial secrets for all new items introduced, which should not appear in the automobile industry competitors.
The races of the Formula - 1 can occur any situation, even ending up in tragedy, but none of the drivers speak ill of the technical services. Technical services are separate from any sensation of racing and put into a state of "sacred cow" that lives by itself. Viewers of racing and television companies bring owners of Formula - 1 big money. But again this is an outward appearance. The main purpose of these races is to get the most reliable components and automotive parts, which passes the test during the race, and reliable technology of the new products immediately enter into leading car manufacturers of the West and ensure the success of the entire automotive industry.
Although Japan and South Korea are in the East, their ideology throughout the automotive industry combined with the policy of the West, similarly applies to the robbery of the developing world. Just because of the cheap labour, all branches of the automotive world auto giants are placed in the developing world, closer to Japan, South Korea, where US military bases are located, and maintain control of the whole of Southeast Asia. This policy provides a single point of view of total Capital, named the "West", that even allows South Korea to gain access to advanced technologies.
In Russia there are no such opportunities of getting advanced technologies in the automotive industry. On the one hand, Russia is not taken by the "golden billion" "partners" in the West and is considered only as a source of raw materials for their own interests, and on the other hand, the majority of Russians still believe in the power of the global market in which they "can" buy advanced technology for its car industry. There is a difficult realization of the fact that the West needs only those Russians who have a significant share of the share capital for raw materials and are willing to trade them on the terms dictated by the world market. Therefore, the new technologies of the leading automakers will not reach to the Russian Volga and Lada, and Russia itself is only able to allow Western auto giants to build at their own factories and to buy their cars for themselves. Governmental institutions in Moscow believe such a policy as "mutually beneficial", which allows them not to think of transporting themselves in a domestic Volga.
Of course, Russian capital has made efforts to remedy the situation in the automotive industry, some oligarchs, even thought it necessary for themselves to join the Formula One racing. Therefore, to start with in Moscow we had the racing cars near the Kremlin, thus simulating a racing circuit. Now in Sochi they have made large investments and built a Grand Prix circuit. As a result, Formula - 1 for a few days a year appears in Sochi and the cars of leading Western countries deigned the Russian circuit with noise of their engines. And given the global significance of this show, I think, the race track owners get some profit from its use.
Only here for the Russian automobile industry, the race track in Sochi is as important as any other circuit abroad. Russian model cars are not getting new technologies to improve their own cars, and what can be obtained at the big master's table of Western "partners" is already stale and thus Russian is seriously not capable of affecting the competition.
In order to understand what tasks are put before the technical services of Formula - 1, you need to quote from the technical regulations of the races regulating the development of the energy component in the cars. The leading link in regulation has become the energy recovery system (ERS). In addition to generating energy during braking, ERS units significantly improved in 2014, and they generate electro-energy not only from the heat from braking, but also from the use of waste heat from the engine and turbocharger. In contrast to the energy recovery system of the sample of 2013, which gave the driver an additional 80 horsepower (hp) for six seconds on each lap in the races, the ERS sample of 2014 already gives about 160 hp for 33 seconds on each lap. To compensate for the extra power generated by the ERS during braking, a rear brake control system has been allowed to be generated. Simply put, the teams participating in the racing cars when braking should not transform the energy into the heating of the brake pads, but to transform it into electricity generation, which is concentrated in batteries, and in the flat areas allows the driver to increase speed due to the inclusion of additional electro-motors from the batteries, which give for a few seconds an increase in the rate of speed in the order of 160 hp. At the same time the fuel tank is filled with only 100 litres of fuel, which under uneconomical driving in the race will not be enough.
Something similar needed to be already mentioned when talking about the creation of the best military equipment during the Great Patriotic War. And especially since 1942, when all Soviet aircraft construction was headed by G.M. Malenkov. I already spoke that: "It was he (Malenkov) who turned the conventional aircraft engine into a power plant and forced it to serve all design ideas. The aircraft designers were destined to save on everything, first of all, on weight, improved aerodynamics, and to ensure the reliability of life-support systems of aircraft. As a result, all design decisions were connected to aircraft fuel efficiency in the power plant, and the combat vehicle turned into a racing plane."
Today, our man in the street, with his mouth wide open, looking at the creation of Western models of the car industry, not knowing that all of their production of innovation was "stripped" from the Soviet military and post-war planning management system based on improving productivity. And the vast majority of modern people of Russia have no idea that the post-war automobile production in the USSR in everything, adopted the system of formation of the quality of Malenkov and created the Pobeda and Muskviches which were no less inferior to western cars. The fact that Malenkov laid down in 1942 the basis of all this quality formation, achieved by creating a high speed of the best models of Soviet aircraft, which, in turn, had military superiority in the air and had driven the Nazi vultures from Soviet soil. What exactly would be headed by Malenkov after the war, would result in the domestic rocket construction and achieve in 1957 the launch of the world's first artificial satellite, already reaching the highest speeds.
But who now remembers Malenkov who replaced the head of the Soviet Union, J.V. Stalin and was forced to resign from all his posts in 1957? Today, the overwhelming majority of the population remember Nikita Khrushchev as the "sole leader", who replaced Stalin. But Khrushchev as a result of his intrigues, appeared as the head of state only in 1958, when at the suggestion of K.Voroshilova, he became Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the USSR. And what did the head of the Soviet Union, Khrushchev do? He first rushed in 1959 on the created Tu-104 under the direction of Malenkov into the United States, to teach them there how to live ... Ever since then, the domestic everyman has been enthusiastically looking to Uncle Sam, thinking that it comes out with the highest wisdom.
But returning from the United States, Nikita Khrushchev’s logic was simple - all the problems in industry would have to be solved by institutions. As a result, planning and productivity were now not up to scratch, as they did not have the institutions. But most importantly, the Stakhanov method of increasing labour productivity was being made redundant, which was then replaced by an imitation flurry of activity and outright forgery. Without the Stakhanov method of increasing labour productivity, all Soviet planning turned out to be torpedoed. And Soviet power at that time was already doomed.
Meanwhile, the Stakhanov method of increasing productivity that was thrown overboard by Khrushchev was, in the 60s, adopted by the Japanese machine builders. Onto the Japanese car assembly conveyors arrived "quality circles", which repeated throughout the methods of increasing productivity set in the Soviet aviation industry by G. Malenkov and throughout copied the method of A. Stakhanov. As a result of the rapid pace of increase in labour productivity at the expense of quality circles, Japan in the 1980-s occupied second place in the capitalist world in terms of economic development. At that time, the Soviet Union was skidding in all directions. Accordingly, the "smart heads" in the USSR in the 80s could not offer anything else, other than the creation of another Management Institute, which appeared in the form of perestroika, called upon to look even more closely into the mouth of Uncle Sam.
If we look at the fact that allowed the forming of quality circles in the Grand Prix, and determined the behaviour of the technical services for Formula - 1 motor racing, we see a very instructive example. It is the productive forces collected from different countries of the West which present themselves as the labour aristocracy. And here it is not necessary to use the term "working class", as these labour groups are crammed into the body of big business, in which they are provided with an impressive salary and have to respect trade secrets. And although the role of these productive forces are taken away from the media spotlight, and the internal order created conditions for them amount to the "sacred cow", all this show of Formula One racing is one created for the sake of technical services, which operate in their main job. On the basis of these technical services are born all the modern technology in the automotive industry. And these modern technologies are already providing leadership in the automotive industry.
Can in such circumstances the best examples of technology of the western racing circuit come to Russian car factories? Of course, we can get such samples of modern cars at Russian plants, because the market is always looking for a profit, so, sooner or later, the West will sell the long-awaited technology to produce reliable components and parts. Except that this time, the Western car manufacturers will produce electric cars in bulk, in which the role of the internal combustion engine will be reduced to the level of less than 50% of the total electric power. Therefore, technology for powerful internal combustion engines will become obsolete and the West, under the laws of the market, at a good price will sell to Russia everything that has stopped finding application in the automotive industry's leading giants of imperialism.
Therefore, returning to the Russian domestic automotive engineering, we can say one thing. From our car industry, for that matter, and of the entire industry, the advanced working class, capable of massively increasing productivity has at best been struck out in its time. Although, statistically, it is certainly present, but does not show initiative because the initiative could be turned against it. For order on the Russian conveyor was reduced to the fact that the working class did not have a say, because the final word arrogated to itself the bureaucracy, which arrogated to itself all the privileges, which under Stalin-Malenkov belonged to the Stakhanovites.
It is impossible not to recall that Alexei Stakhanov with his best practices in coal production increased excavation by 14 times, resulting in him, like a pioneer of the method, had his salary increased by several times. In this sense, too, Stakhanov was a labour aristocracy. Only here, others followed him, and were also using in the mining conveyor his method of cutting coal, although it required additional exertion. Only the other miners in the future, began not to receive a higher salary, but began to receive an increase in their living standards by lowering the prices in the shops, where they bought the products of their livelihoods. The price tags in shops, from the miners’ massive increase in labour productivity using the Stakhanov method, began to drop, resulting in the purchasing power of the Soviet population increasing. And that's the essence of Soviet labour productivity.
One may recall the academician, while the President of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR A.P. Aleksandrov, who said how often he, the creator of the largest nuclear reactors in the world, had to seek the assistance of the working class. He also often did not have enough qualified assessments of everything that happens in a nuclear reactor. And for that assessment, the head of science of the country had to seek the help of an ordinary worker, who, directly in the reactor itself could determine what happens with units and parts in process of their hard work. The workers were isolated from the radioactive environment, and for literally seconds climbed into the shutdown reactor and evaluated the situation in the most heat-stressed areas on the scale requested by Academician Aleksandrov. No one else other than the workers themselves could give such an assessment. The head of Soviet science was getting qualified assessments of the state of affairs in the reactor, after which, further improvements were made in the establishment of nuclear power plants. In practice, the outstanding scientist could not do without a skilled evaluation from workers-experts, because these workers were pioneers in their field of work and led an entire industry in the development of the entire nuclear power industry.
In quality circles, created by Japanese design or in the technical services of Formula - 1, we can see the same analogue of workers and experts who lead the entire automotive industry of the West. Only there, industrial relations separated by the commercial secret peculiar to the world of Capital. Socialism, on the contrary, seeks commercial success from expert workers, ie, the Stakhanovite, put at the service of the people and improving the welfare of the entire labour force due to the policy of lowering prices.
Over the past half-century in the public mind, first the Soviet Union, and now - Russia, there has formed a strong opinion that the problems of labour productivity growth in manufacturing should be solved by scientists. The current system of standardizing work way back since the Khrushchev era, pushed the working class away from all problem solving in this area. The workers’ initiative on energy consumption did not receive any management support, due to reluctance by the bureaucracy to "move" the ordinary worker to the Olympus or an employee initiative itself could be turned against that same employee with the same guilt as a gross violation of some safety requirements. Therefore, in a climate of specially created stagnation, which was interpreted before as "taking care of all the Soviet people," "impossible in Stalin's time," is now exalted as "thorough protection at work", "guarded by overseeing services" – it is impossible to rely on the Stakhanovite initiative of the working class.
Progress is only able to develop under a unified system aimed at lowering the cost of energy. Only energy saving moves progress and the standard of living improves. And simply put, humanity already lives on the scale of energy consumption, but is counting on the cash component of the banking system which distributes profits, depending on the capital invested. But the majority of the population wants to have direct involvement in the use of energy resources, which are public property, and in large quantities can not belong to some kind of uncle Sam.
However, only in the Russian defence industry do the remnants of Malenkov still somehow continue to live, and reproduce warplanes and domestic rocket science. Here, it must be said, it has done its job with its secrecy of guarding defence from the outside world, which helped to preserve some test sites with whole services. They have even created something new in the form of a polygon for tank biathlon competitions that contribute to the qualitative improvement of military equipment. But this expiring "horse" does not go far. There should be a sharp and massive increase in labour productivity.
And where are we to get a sharp rise in productivity?
Only the working class can raise labour productivity. And the experience of the automotive industry says that just the working class alone will not raise anything. And the problem here is in the redistribution of profits. The working class also wants the profit in the state to work for it, not for some clever uncle Sam in a nice suit and expensive foreign car. For labour productivity in production by the broad masses is a criterion of success of the state in the world arena, and at its absence is crisis and decline. A decline can lead the country to a complete collapse.
Therefore, we can only dream of Russian quality circles, since we cannot talk of the Stakhanov component in modern conditions. Since, in both cases, the productive forces will require modern industrial relations, which will quickly come into conflict with the huge apparatus of bureaucracy, a parasite well-established since the Khrushchev era of industrial relations. As a result, the relations of production in the automotive industry are all in the same conditions as a prolonged sleep, when the productive forces just about work and the bureaucratic apparatus just about pays them their wages.
We cannot say that for the Russian reality, this situation was new. Domestic production relations once again are experiencing the coming of the "Dead Souls" by Nikolai Gogol, where dead "productive forces" traditionally sold their labour power, and their owners, from Manilov to Sobakevich prototypes with landlord greatness are in relentless dialogue about the great creation of Capital in Russia and the bliss of being in its "Garden of Eden". Anyway, on television, economists are deprived of any critical thought to the situation in the economy and talk about devalued equity of Russian issuers. From which all the created problems they see as only in helping small and medium businesses. In fact, share capital, which they consider as major, has long passed into the category of medium and small. And an example of this is the degradation of the domestic automobile industry.
Today in Russia, even the leading oil and gas monopolies cannot be attributed to the category of big business, as Gazprom and Rosneft lives in the image of feudal sheiks of the Middle East, leaching off energy resources. Even those monopolies lack any understanding of capital as self-expansion, since there is the absence of any expanded reproduction, not only in the public interest, but also in their own interests. We cannot consider the construction of pipelines to the West to be a successful investment. From the state's point of view - it's just trying to maintain the social policy in Russia at the expense of taxes on the sale of energy. In practice, such a policy repeats throughout the experience of the automotive industry, and relies on western parts.
In today's world, big capital presents itself as only the leading conglomerates of the United States and Germany. And between them there is and a fierce struggle for world leadership. Only China looks different, which could also take a leading position in the world, but there, the CCP runs the order of things. The BRICS countries economically allows Russia to make headway into the powerful potential of China's stock market to get away from the pressure of the dollar, but it does not make Russian capital major. As for the United States and Germany, then they are able to move away from direct confrontation due to the threat from their rivals and allies in the developing world where the forms of protest are taking on a more and more radical form. Although, admittedly, an extremist form of struggle by the oppressed masses is needed by capital itself, in order to ideologically justify the economic plunder of the developing world and massively direct against these masses the social protests of the "civilized" world.
The Russian bourgeois counter-revolution had no progressive leaders even on a capitalist footing, able to lead the second largest country in the category of leading monopolies of big business, no inferior to the United States and Germany. Occupying second place in the world in the economic potential of the USSR, Russia today may expect to get into the top ten countries in the world. The whole "progressive" community of Russia in their bourgeois transformation stood for leaders such as the Gaidar and Chubais. The only motive for this movement was - greed based on the thirst for money and property. Of course, among this audience, US and German intelligence immediately takes a leading role and, focuses on the economy of Russia for their own interests. Could major capital with such a situation in the country remains? Of course not.
In Russia today, what is meant by oligarchic capital, actually on the centre stage of world powers is only medium-sized business. Since this business does not have maternal autonomy and, for the most part is forced to take the position of the child, and for the most part is a grandchild benchmark in the financial pedigree, focusing on big capital in the US and Germany. Which then in turn, makes this business and the billionaires escape from Russia and seek support under the wing of the western, higher status of oligarchic structures. Therefore, if you look closely to the economic model of the Russian oligarchs, then it repeats throughout the same system the domestic automobile industry, where in Russia it is degradation and in the West - salvation.
Such degradation is in all reminiscent of the events of a century ago, when Russia was the fifth largest in the world, but quickly slid down to the "weakest link in the chain of imperialism." Today, Russia can no longer even claim fifth place in the world, which greatly reduces the time towards rolling to the weakest link.
And what sense can one refer to the concept of "the weakest link in the chain of imperialism"? Back then, Lenin saw three options of denouement of this situation, and fitted them into the socialist revolution thus: "Yesterday it was too early, tomorrow will be too late, you have today only!". What do these concepts mean? The fact that "yesterday was too early," meant for the inevitable defeat of the revolution, as Petrograd would use the troops of the Entente allies, namely France and England, followed by the United States and would have entered by the time the war in the Pacific and would certainly claim Vladivostok.
Why, then, "tomorrow will be too late"? But it would be too late because at Petrograd, the troops were already in Germany and the closest to their naval fleet, so the revolution would have suppressed the German troops as the Provisional Government in the situation in World War saw in yesterday's enemy a better ally. And the outcome of the First World War could have been very different, in favour of Germany.
As part of colonial policy, Russian bourgeois thought repeats throughout the thought of British analysts who in the wake of a more advanced bourgeois revolution XVII century, in the twentieth century surrendered all positions of its former colony on the North American continent and became subservient to it. The twentieth century swept away the old values of the bourgeois world and put share capital in charge of the entire policy, the high profit margins of which allow any crime to be committed, even under fear of the gallows. Therefore, in the world imperialist slaughter, the outcome of the war is not decided on the battlefield, but on the capture of the largest resource base, whose weight in the global economy becomes decisive. If Germany captured Russia's resource base, the other imperialists would have had no choice but to acknowledge Germany’s victory. Although for some time the fighting could go on, but in the presence of Russian resources and German industry - problems with advanced weaponry on the front from Germany would be absent. At the same time we must recognize that Russia has always had a significant stratum of the urban population that is always ready to support Germany, not excluding our time.
But saying "we must today," Lenin clearly defined the date of the Great October Revolution, which did not allow any forces to seize Russia, neither by the Entente nor by the troops of Germany. And this prophetic "must today" means understanding the revolutionary masses’ tension that allows for progressive changes in the country and moves the entire development of mankind. At the same time Lenin was an absolute philosopher and tribune of the masses which went first towards socialist revolution, and then to the industrialization of the whole country. None of the Russian leaders after Malenkov could be boasted in the same way.
Today, Russia needs socialism. Tomorrow will be too late, because the threat is looming today and it should be eliminated. The threat comes from the forces of fascism, which in Europe spread their shoulders and have the strong support of the US and Germany. Banderite Ukraine is only the first news. The European Union not in vain bankrupted countries like Greece and the Baltic states to the outlet to get new Greek "black colonels", as in the Baltic States to put in a new firing position a "Waffen SS."
In the current situation, in Russia lacks not only an understanding about what you need to progressively do today, but there is no technical policy that can stop the economic slide. At the same time, the Russian government is simply unable to put forward technical policy, because that drags along with it the raising of the working class to a higher stage of development and, as a result, strengthen its struggle to raise its living standards. And that is what the Russian bureaucracy is afraid of the most. As it will be forced to give up its privileges to the new hegemon. And it will not be the "hegemon" who had fallen asleep during the Khrushchev-Brezhnev stagnation, and was not able to wake up in the time of Gorbachev's "catastroika." The new hegemon will require reorientation profits in their favour by building revolutionary productivity with planned management of the entire economy, where energy consumption will be monitored daily and based on them will be the policy of lower prices.
That is the conclusion to which we come, if you carefully look at the problems of our industrialization in the automobile industry.

Madrid, August 22nd, 2015 (Juche 104).
All members who make up the KFA worldwide,
we want to express in this statement our total and unconditional support to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, its people, its representatives and diplomats, and our Supreme Commander KIM JONG UN.
Together with all the Korean people, the KFA defends the cause of the Independent and Peaceful Reunification of the Nation, this Korean right was taken by the American occupation in South Korea after the Victory against the Japanese empire, of which this year marks the 70th
Anniversary. It is the foreign intervention, with all
lies that come through their media, the one that
prevents that peace and provoke confrontation between compatriots, brothers, sisters and all Korean People.
To drive out the US Imperialists forces from South Korea is the most important task about all progressive people and lovers of peace, and in this task, all KFA members we will be always in the frontline.
From the KFA we always keep our position to defend
the cause of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, being on the side of their representatives, always faithful
to our Supreme Commander KIM JONG UN.
Nobody can break our UNITY!!

It is with alarm that the Staffordshire Branch of the UK Korean Friendship Association views the present situation upon the Korean peninsula. The state of affairs in Korea and in North East Asia, has spiralled into a war type crisis. A war in Korea, would potentially develop into a global war, involving nuclear war weapons. So it is in the interests of world peace and security, that the situation in Korea remains peaceful.

What sparked off this current crisis was the false allegations made by the Pak Chung Hee Regime that the Korean Peoples Army had planted land mines in the southern half of the Demilitarized Zone. This assertion made by south Korea does not stand to any kind of logic. Using this false flag, the south Korean authorities resumed psychological warfare broadcasts aimed at the northern half of the DMZ. The population of the Kaesong area of the DPRK have to endure loud broadcasts going on 24 hours a days, 7 days a week. Violating The 1953 Armistice Agreement, the south Korean military fired 36 shells at civil police posts located within the northern side of the DMZ. The Pak Chung Hee appears hell bent on creating conditions of confrontation and conflict on the Korean peninsula, so to suppress aspirations of the population of south Korea who desire peaceful reunification with their brothers and sisters.

So in response to the extremely aggressive moves of the Pak Chung Hee Regime, the Supreme Leadership of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea put the frontline units of the Korean Peoples Army in a state of semi-war alertness, on August 21st. The Korean People want peace and independent reunification, but if attacked by the south Korean puppets and their US imperialist backers, the Korean People and Army will defend with determination, the bastion of socialism, independence and human dignity, the DPRK. If the forces of imperialism launch a war of aggression, the Korean People will raise up with a just war of liberation and reunification.

The Staffordshire Branch of the Korean Friendship calls upon the Peace and Labour Movements, and indeed all sectors of public opinion to stop the war manoeuvres of the south Korean regime and to express solidarity with the Korean People. We the friends of Korea in Staffordshire stand shoulder to shoulder with the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, in defence of its socialism and sovereignty. Now is the time for all progressive people to rally around the just cause of Peoples Korea!

London 20th of August 2015
The UK Korean Friendship Association applauds the 55h anniversary of the start of the Songun(army-first) revolutionary leadership on August 25th. This began with the on-the spot guidance of great leader generalissimo KIM JONG IL to the historic Seoul Guards Ryu Kyong Su no 105 tank division of the Korean People's Army .
The Songun revolutionary leadership is basically a continuation of the theories , ideas and leadership of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG . The president have learnt through the anti-Japanese armed struggle that arms guarantee the advance of the revolution and the independence of the nation .
The Korean People's Army was built up as the core of the revolution as well a powerful Juche-orientated defence force in which every soldier is a match for a hundred enemy soldiers and every soldier is a cadre.
The five plus decades of Songun revolutionary leadership of great generalissimo KIM JONG IL have produced great results . The DPRK is solid self-reliant military power, a socialist anti-imperialist military power of Juche . The DPRK has been a nuclear power for 9 years and a satellite launching nation .The DPRK's massive defence potential has secured the existence Korean-style socialism against the threats of US imperialism and its south Korean puppets.
The Songun revolutionary leadership has also seen the successful building of the economy and victories on the diplomatic front such as the opening of diplomatic relations with the UK and other Western countries. Songun politics actively defends peace and independence contributing to stablity in the Asia-Pacific region and the world.
Songun politics is indeed a powerful political mode of socialism leading it to victory . The Songun revolutionary leadership is now been carried forward by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN who is guiding the strengthening of the self-defensive capacity of People's Korea .
UK KFA salutes the 55th anniversary of the Songun revolutionary leadership ! Long may it continue !

FOR BOLSHEVISM - No 08 (149) AUGUST 2015

Workers of all countries, unite!


The political deadlock in Ukraine will lead to war
"The living Soul of Marxism: A specific
case study of the situation"

"We are declaring a ruthless war on the revolutionary phrase about a revolutionary war"
V.I. Lenin

Events unfolding in Novorossia is much more complicated than it seems to some of our fellow comrades - Bolsheviks. A narrow understanding of the problem leads to erroneous conclusions and wrong recommendations in the action. As Lenin said, "Whoever takes up any particular issues without solving common issues, will inevitably everywhere unconsciously "stumble" upon on these common issues. And to stumble blindly on them in each particular case means to doom one’s own policies to the worst vacillation in the unprincipled".
In fact, the case is not in Ukraine, not in New Russia (Novorossiya), but in the opposition between the United States and Russia which is rising from its knees after the counter-revolution in the 1990s, after the collapse of the great Soviet country by the criminal fifth column with the active participation of the West, and primarily the United States. The situation with Ukraine is not a regional conflict, is not a conflict with one of the "sovereign" of "born out of perestroika." Some of our comrades do not see the situation as V.I. Lenin was able to see it, who "capturing the whole land at once, saw what was temporarily closed." It should be good to remember the words of V.I. Lenin, and that "power can be taken with bayonets, but you must not sit on the bayonets."
Supporters of solving all the problems by military means in Novorossia say "the united army of the LPR and DPR need to organize an offensive on the west, enter Kiev and overthrow the fascist junta. An attack on the bandera-fascist capital should be organized quickly, without delay, so that the enemy could not prepare itself for a serious rebuff. The LPR and DPR need to conduct a general mobilization, and this will provide a numerical advantage over the united forces of the junta army. In addition, most of the working population of Dnepropetrovsk , Zaporozhye, Poltava, Kharkov, Kiev, Odessa and other areas, many of whom are Russian citizens, will certainly support the advancing troops of the DPR and the LPR."
Tempting. But, let's take a closer look at this. Compare the whole area on the map of Ukraine (respectively - and the population) and that of the DPR, and LPR. The recommended military strategy by superiority in numbers, even in order of magnitude is not reached. Entry into the war by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation? Another illusion - that we have the Soviet army, and led by Stalin. As things really are is described in a recent book by A.A.Mayevsky. It shows that Russia today thanks to the "perestroika" collapse is not ready to start on equal terms an open armed confrontation with the United States.
Help on the way by the population for the New Russia army to Kiev is also problematic. Why is that? Most of the population without doubt live worse than ever, but at least are not killed, and what about New Russia? If she had a steady movement to victory – then that's another matter!
Russian military intervention in the conflict - that's what so eagerly both the US and the EU want to prevent, in principle, is the development of the situation in the direction of the restoration of the Soviet Union. No wonder the United States spent many billions of dollars on its destruction.
Wars in Europe have always been an important source of economic recovery and political power of the United States. This is especially true of the two world wars of the twentieth century, which caused a huge outflow of capital and minds of the warring European countries to America. The "cold" third world war ended in the destruction of the world socialist system, which gave the United States an inflow of more than a trillion dollars, hundreds of thousands of professionals and many unique technologies. All these wars were provoked by the active participation of the American "fifth column" in the face of controlled, financed and supported by US intelligence agencies spies, tycoons, diplomats, bureaucrats, businessmen, experts and public figures and so-called nongovernmental organizations. And even today, faced with growing financial and economic difficulties, the US is trying to unleash a new war in Europe to achieve its eternal goals.
A few words about the Minsk Agreement. The signing of the Minsk Agreement, with all its contradictions and shortcomings (as discussed below), was the right decision by Russia, but these agreements are not being met by the Kiev junta (only the republics of the DPR and LPR are fulfilling them). The criminal attacks from the same large-caliber long-range artillery, destroying Donbass civilians daily by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, continues constantly. For the DPR and LPR, the Minsk Agreement is breathing space, strengthening its forces of consolidation. It is clear that these agreements cannot be constantly acting! Especially that Kiev is purposefully preparing for more serious military action against the rebel residents of Donbass. Contrary to the agreements, the Ukrainian army continues the transfer of heavy weapons to the front line of confrontation, and the total number of Ukrainian soldiers on the frontline has reached 50 thousand. Based on the recent intensification of the military group, the Ukrainian army launched attacks on the outskirts of Donetsk, with the aim to break the defence of the militias and establish street battles in the capital of the DPR. Particularly fierce fighting was going on for a week from June 2 in the village of Marinka. As a result of these battles, the Ukrainian military suffered with 400 dead and thousands wounded. While militias managed to defend their positions, among them losses were also significant.
Yes, the current situation is unstable. What are the possible scenarios? The first option is to preserve for a long time the "neither good, nor bad" current situation. For Novorossia, this option is bad. This is a dangerous stagnation of the revolutionary process. The second option is that the Kiev junta decides to spit on all sorts of Minsk agreements and move to all-out offensive. In terms of the image of Kiev then this is a pure loss, giving an opportunity to the Russian Federation to utilise their own armed forces to "save the lives of thousands of women, old men, children, destroyed by gangs of fascist thugs-nationalists." Finally, the third option is radical change in the situation in Ukraine itself. Is this possible?
A year ago in Kiev, there was a military coup. The fascist junta headed by Poroshenko, Yatseniuk, Tyagnibok, Turchinov, using the fascist militants from "Svoboda" and "Right Sector", under the banner of fascist henchmen of the Great Patriotic War, overthrew the legitimately elected President and government. They took advantage of discontent of the Ukrainian people fed up with the stupid and greedy oligarchs Yanukovych and his clique. He showed complete inactivity and indecision with regard to the brazen militants of the neo-banderov armed groups. The mistake of the Russian leadership was recognition of the new Kiev government headed by Poroshenko based on illegitimate elections conducted with gross violations of the Constitution of Ukraine, with the participation of a small proportion of the population (because of the situation in the country), with fraud in the vote count (if there was in fact any counting) "FOR" Poroshenko. For the sake of this portfolio, on the day of counting votes, all electronic systems of counting were knocked out of order (the explanation – they were "hacked") and therefore the voting figures declared were taken "from the air." The Kiev Maidan was organized by the United States and the new president of Ukraine Poroshenko appointed by the U.S. too.
In the year of Poroshenko’s rule, real wages of Ukrainians decreased by 30%. To give birth, die, get married, get sick, have a rest, drive a car - all this has become a luxury for most Ukrainians. The economy is stagnating. The national currency has catastrophically devalued. The regulator is struggling with the currency rate manually, actively using the printing press and devastating foreign exchange gold reserves. The Verkhovna Rada has allowed the government not to pay external debts to private creditors. The next step could be a technical default, resulting in the inevitable blocking of the next tranche of the IMF. There is a monstrous plundering by the country's oligarchs on the export of loot and the dramatic impoverishment of the population.
According to a poll by TNS, published in late May, only 8% of respondents assessed the work of Peter Poroshenko and the Ukrainian government as satisfactory. The policies by the President are approved by 17% of Ukrainians and 51% are dissatisfied with them. However, there is another rating - closed, which evaluated the opposition. According to the April 2015 population survey, if parliamentary elections were held next weekend, the first place would be taken by the "Opposition Bloc", the second by the Petr Poroshenko Bloc, and the third by the "Self-help" bloc.
According to the Odessa newspaper "Timer", the notorious Saakashvili said: "If the fall of the economy of Ukraine suddenly stopped, and it rose each year by 4%, then we will get to the 2013 level in 20 years time. Only two decades later we will return to the economic performance of Ukraine's Yanukovich". Currently, Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe, he said.
According to Mikhail Pogrebinsky, director of the Institute for Political and Conflict Studies (Kiev): "... What can we say about the provision of medicines to Ukrainians as tens of thousands of people were left without essential medical supplies due to the irresponsibility of the leadership of the Ministry of Health. And who do we have out there in charge? And most head of it – the historian by education imported from Georgia, Alexander Kvitashvili. The only thing that merits him is that he studied in the United States, has a good knowledge of the English language, and is friends with Saakashvili. That defeat of the Ministry of Health, which he managed to inflict over a couple of months, probably even by our government seemed too far. Most likely, soon Kvitashvili will be dismissed."
Therefore, how long will the current situation persist? Until the early elections to the Verkhovna Rada which may be held in November of 2015? "It is possible, that is exactly what will happen. But will we get such a composition of the Verkhovna Rada, which will form the majority of moderate, focused on reaching a compromise in the Donbas and in general - to carry out a realistic domestic and foreign policy?" That is very doubtful. "In fact, I'm pretty sure that in the new parliament will dominate a coalition of "war parties". And not because society as a whole is focused on war. On the contrary, according to the latter, the May poll conducted by the Centre "Sofia", 60% of respondents are inclined to seek peace, even at the cost of part of the territory, such as the Donbas."
For radical changes, it is not enough for the population to be tired of war, the economically disastrous policy of the authorities, and most of the citizens’ confidence that "the country is moving in the wrong direction." To do this, you need a complete reformatted social consciousness, not just disappointed in the current leaders of the country. We need a strong revision of attitude towards the idea of the Maidan, the rejection of illusory goals.
True, there is an option number two. If not through legal, how else can one get out of the impasse into which the Maidan brought the country and came to power on a wave of its new - old politicians? Perhaps, just as they came to power, that is, by rebellion and a coup d'etat? This option seems unlikely at the moment , although many disagree with our points.
Guardians of a new rebellion refer to the growth of protest sentiments that are compounded by economic and social problems and so on. People, they say, cannot continue to tolerate this. But people will continue to tolerate, because this alone is not enough for a successful coup d'etat. It needs financing, control is needed over the media, you need betrayal of the ruling team, foreign support is needed – everything that was in the autumn of 2013 and what was not, and is unlikely to emerge in the near future, despite the existence of "objective conditions."
In assessing the prospects of the situation in Ukraine one must, of course, take into account what the country has "collected" from different parts of the historical past, with different ethnic composition. And here it is not just about the huge second part of the Russian-speaking population in the Greater Novorossiya from Kharkiv to Odessa, but also of national minorities in other regions gravitating towards Russia. For example, on June 13, 2015 in Mukachevo, the Coordinating Council of Transcarpathian Ruthenian organizations (KSROZ) formed on 14.03.2015, held its first working session. The KSROZ meeting was attended by representatives of a number of Ruthenian organizations. A discussion of the next events and activities of KSROZ aimed at ensuring the rights, freedoms and security of Ruthenian communities in Transcarpathia. As a result of these discussions KSROZ adopted a statement on priorities for action and the structure of its member organizations. In this statement, in particular, it criticizes the policy of the Kiev authorities and particularly President Poroshenko. In a statement in this regard, it said that the solution of the crisis problems in Ukraine will help towards empowering different regions of the country and, in particular, the special status of Transcarpathia self-governing territory. For Transcarpathia the basis for solving these problems are the results of the Zakarpattia Oblast Berehove district and the 1991 referendum, when more than 90% of the population were in favour of giving the Transcarpathian virtually autonomous status. The statement called for the Council of Europe, European Commission, OSCE and the UN, as well as the parliaments of Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia, to draw attention to the fact that the Kiev authorities, despite the request of the Ruthenian, Hungarian and other minorities in Transcarpathia, refuse to cooperate with them in recognition of the results of the Zakarpattia Oblast Berehove district and the 1991 referendum. KSROZ also decided to lead the process of self-government of Rusyns in Transcarpathia.
Now, onto foreign policy, because of which, in fact, the infamous Maidan gathered. "With regard to membership of the EU, we should clearly note that a European perspective [for Ukraine] does not exist", - declared at the end of May the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker. We can understand this President: we do not need the poor, we have enough of our own!
Washington's reaction to the situation in Ukraine. As stated by falsifying the facts, on Monday, June 15, White House spokesman Josh Ernest, "We remain concerned about the constant flow of military equipment and troops from the Russian side of the border to Ukraine." According to the White House, there is "much evidence" that the Russian military is assisting the militias in the Donbass, which, in his opinion, is the evidence of "active involvement" of Russia in the conflict in Ukraine. Ernest also stressed that Ukraine cannot count on the same support from the United States, as well as members of NATO, since it is not part of the Alliance. He reminded that Washington has a clear commitment to its NATO allies, but "with Ukraine, the situation is slightly different." At the same time, Ernest assured that Washington supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine and is ready to give it military and financial aid. During his visit to Kiev on June 18 this year, the group of US senators led by Senator John McCain, McCain confirmed to Poroshenko the readiness of the US to supply Kiev with lethal weapons and support Poroshenko both financially, economically, and politically.
Summarizing the situation in Ukraine itself, we see that it is neither sustainable, stable, economically, domestically or in the foreign policy sense. Serious progress is quite possible.
Analyzing the Ukraine - New Russia conflict, one cannot escape from the influence that of fundamental restructuring of international relations, in which is the basic point of the struggle over the special role of the United States, around the unipolar world that emerged after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Here and vigorous promotion of world leaders in China and, to a certain extent, the policy of Putin, his struggle for the growing political influence of Russia on the international level by the active participation of Russia in the expansion of the scope and composition of the politico-economic blocks of peaceful international organizations (SCO, BRICS, Eurasian Political Union and others). The process of fundamental restructuring of ( not in the interest of the United States ) in international relations and the growth of Russia's prestige was demonstrated and at the International Economic Forum in St-Petersburg, on June 18-20, held under the patronage of Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is noteworthy that in this forum, the Russian liberal idea and the construction of the Russian economy under the laws of the failed liberals is harmful to Russia to continue following this liberal way ...
The US goal in the Ukrainian conflict is clear: to reinforce its claim to sole control of the world. " We, the United States, decided that Ukraine will be - and go along with our way . At any cost. There is no "rebalancing” of "international relations." At the outbreak of the presidential race, the latest statements by the presidential candidates from both the Democratic Party and the Republican are directed primarily against Russia, which is a clear demonstration of the anti-Russian focus of the highest American circles, and whose proteges will participate in the presidential elections.
In politics, no one need have any illusions. As Lenin said: "... A Marxist at the right moment must take in account not from what is possible, but from the reality of the situation". Putin is president of a bourgeois capitalist state - the Russian Federation. But if we confine ourselves to this - we make a mistake. It must be clearly understood - how every action, every Putin's initiative is related to our own, communist goals! Contradiction? Favourable?
Specifically, the question of the return of the Crimea to Russia. Russian liberals – the pro-American fifth column - raised the wild howl about "Russian imperialism", "aggression of the Russian Federation." To this we can safely answer that there was a referendum. The population of Crimea overwhelmingly approved an exit from Ukraine and joining the Russian Federation. This is the put into practice right of nations to self-determination enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations. And indeed the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine by Khrushchev was carried out in contradiction to the Soviet Constitution. In the ensuing economic sanctions against Russia from the United States and the EU, Russia was correct in responding to this by introducing counter-sanctions.
How has the population of the Russian Federation responded to the economic sanctions? A study in Russia, conducted by the agency Associated Press and the US National Centre for Public Opinion, no doubt shocked the White House and the American elite. The survey showed that 81% of Russians support President Vladimir Putin. According to West, the days of Vladimir Putin as President should have been numbered: the ruble has depreciated by half, the economy is in crisis, and the Ukrainian crisis has turned Russia into an international pariah. But US experts have to admit: Russians can survive what other nations would not stand. "The power of Russian is that they can withstand what would break other people" - was an opinion after a trip to Moscow, expressed by George Friedman, an American political scientist, Head of reconnaissance think tank "Stretfor." Here, of course, is very important to note, it is not Putin's popularity alone (it is not the case), but the fact that most of the people managed to rise above short-term economic difficulties realized that there are higher values - Motherland, dignity of the country . In the affairs of Putin, one can note the attention to import substitution (i.e. - the realization of the Stalinist self-reliance) and sharp "rebuff" against slanderers on the history of the country, to the great feat of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War. All this – is useful in terms of bringing the country out of the "guardianship" of the United States, from the influence of human-hating liberal ideology, from the pile of all sorts of illusions that the "democrats" in the 1990s tried to instil in people. Departing from bourgeois ideology inevitably returns people to class ideology, the ideology of the working people. Here it is necessary to raise the question: why does a worker or a scientist get paid 20-30 thousand rubles a month, but a pot-bellied "manager" gets a few million? ..
What are the actions of the Russian communists that would be useful and correct in terms of the situation with Ukraine and Novorossia? It is necessary to demand from the Russian leadership:
- a hard diplomatic struggle for the complete and accurate implementation of the Minsk Agreement by the Kiev junta primarily on the issue of the ceasefire and the withdrawal of heavy weapons from the border conflict;
- provision of effective multilateral support for the struggling people of New Russia in strengthening self-defence, stabilizing the economy - providing for its self-sufficiency and improving the living conditions of the population. New Russia should become an example for the entire population of Ukraine for their successful struggle for their inalienable rights – as well as national, economic, and for the right to self-determination, enshrined in the UN Charter!
With regard to the struggling people of Donbass:
- provide the communist forces in the political spectrum of Novorossia comprehensive ideological, organizational, possible financial assistance by connecting with them international efforts in a common struggle for the fraternal friendship of the peoples, to restore our common motherland - the Soviet Union;
- explain to the people in our propaganda that only socialism is able to rid the world of armed conflict and to ensure the peaceful coexistence of peoples;
- explain to the people the historical inevitability of the proletarian revolution and to prepare for it.
In addition to what was said earlier
Our assessment of the Minsk Agreement of 12 February 2015 was given in the Statement of the Central Committee of the CC AUCPB on 27 February 2015. It noted: "The All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks believes that the talks in Minsk discussed ways to resolve the crisis which has for a year been shaking Ukraine. With this, the main issue is political, without a solution of which the conflict in the South-East of Ukraine may not be solved, in Minsk this was out of the question." It could not be considered at the meeting in the "Norman format" because the three participants of the meeting in one degree or another were involved in the crisis in Ukraine.
In the final part of our statement it reads: "We believe that without a political solution to the crisis in Ukraine, involving the overthrow of the government in Kiev of the fascist neo-banderov government, SUSTAINABLE LONG-TERM PEACE in the region cannot be established."
The statement of the CC AUCPB also said that the Minsk agreements are FRAMEWORK agreements, as they are full of uncertainties, leading to the fact that the implementation of many of the provisions in these circumstances is problematic.
Especially in our statement it stressed: "The signed “package of measures” by the leaders of the DPR and LPR Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky on February 12, 2015 under pressure from Putin "... in general ignores the will of the people of Donbass, expressed in referendums. Misty and ornate provisions on so-called "decentralization "will not be accepted by inhabitants of Donetsk and Lugansk, and it certainly adds fuel to the fire of civil war in Ukraine. The absence of a clear and unambiguous position on the recognition of the Russian language as the second state language can and does make the positions of the parties irreconcilable." This can be observed today.
As has been repeatedly pointed out, the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks clearly and unconditionally supported the will of the people of the DPR and LPR, overwhelmingly expressed at the referendums on May 11, 2014 for the national independence of their republics. The AUCPB also supported the demands, first of all to the Russian leadership, on the recognition of the State and the (independence) of these republics. Many similar demands were made many leftist and patriotic organizations, but, unfortunately, these demands have not been heard.
However, despite all the above contradictions and problems in the way of a settlement of the military conflict in the South-East of Ukraine, we should, as noted in our statement, fully utilize all possibilities, any agreements for the sake of peace, even if only temporary, in order to save lives of people for the sake of preventing the expansion of the conflict zone and turning it into a full-scale fratricidal war.
We Bolsheviks in our position on the question of war and peace refer to the well- known warning by V.I. Lenin: "We know, we know all too well what untold disaster to the workers and peasants carries with it a war. We must therefore in a most careful and prudent way treat this subject. We are making the greatest concessions and sacrifices, in order to save the world ... We are going to make the greatest concessions and sacrifices, but not just any, and not endlessly ... " (VI Lenin., full. cit. op., t. 44, p. 297).
The United States in recent years has been building up its military presence in Europe, including Eastern Europe, directly on the Russian border.
Since the United States failed to involve Russia directly in the armed conflict in Ukraine, therefore they organize an "second anti-Russian front" - Transnistria. There is also an explosive situation. As you know, after the bloody events of 1992 in Transnistria, Russian peacekeeping troops were introduced there. About contingent supplies through Ukraine, an agreement with the Russian government was signed. Recently, however, the Kiev-neo-banderovs-nazis annulled it. The Moldovian capital of Chisinau has focused lately on Romania and NATO, and has also taken up an anti-Russian stance.
In this way, NATO through its minions organizes a blockade of Transnistria and Russian troops located there. Of course, Russia cannot but respond to such hostile actions against its forces.
In recent years, a new hotbed of tension has arisen on the southern border of Russia, Armenia, the events in the capital city which are very reminiscent of the last days of the Kiev Maidan in February 2014. Here, the main active component of the unrest were - young people ... Although the main slogan of the protesters was - "no to increased fees for housing and communal services" (hikes in bills), this is very far from a younger audience ...
There were predictions for the creation of subsequent riots in Kyrgyzstan ... A conclusion can be drawn that the U.S. is trying to set up around the perimeter of the borders of the Russian Federation on the territory of the former Soviet republics republican Maidans similar to Kiev, carry out colour revolutions to overthrow governments loyal to the Russian Federation and to replace them with their own puppets.
In the current volatile situation around Transnistria and in the Donbass, any ill-considered actions can directly trigger a drawing in of the Russian armed forces in a large-scale conflict with the prospect of escalating into a World War III with the use of nuclear weapons. Russia has no moral right to succumb to provocative attacks of the NATO countries and the US and become the instigator of a new world war, which in the present conditions can lead to destruction of human civilization.
Therefore we support the actions of the Russian leadership regarding the policy of restraint from pressure on the Russian Federation on part of the Western countries and the United States. Restraint is carried out by accelerating the development of Russia's defines industry and the growth of the political influence of Russia on the international level.
A positive factor in the weakening of the global US hegemony is the start of trading on the Moscow Stock Exchange since 17 March with futures on the currency pair "Chinese yuan - ruble". This has caused anger in Washington, since trading without dollar participation mark the beginning of the end of world domination of the US currency, and thus move the situation towards the collapse of the United States.
We support the expanding actions of the progressive forces in the world against the outbreak of World War III, against imperialism and against its manifestations - rabid nationalism, chauvinism and fascism. Today, in our difficult time remains relevant warning by J.V. Stalin expressed by him in 1952: "It is likely that the modern peace movement, as a movement for the preservation of peace, if successful will lead to the prevention of a war, its temporary postponement, towards a temporary preservation of peace, in the resignation of a warring government and replaced by another government prepared temporarily to keep the peace ... In order to destroy the inevitability of wars, it is necessary to destroy imperialism."
In our difficult time - the period of restoration of capitalism in the former Soviet republics, including Russia, and intensifying of military aspirations of world imperialism - the relevance of the strategic goal of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks - the restoration of Soviet power as a dictatorship of the proletariat, socialism and the revival of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics - is increasing by the day.

Leningrad, 24 June 2015.

The CC AUCPB expresses its deep indignation at the recent arrest of Communist Alexander Gerasimov by representatives of Ukrainian fascism. The provocation against him was made by Ukrainian Special Branch (SBU) on June 19. Alexander is being accused of involvement in a clandestine organization of communist revolutionaries.
A.V. Gerasimov is a former political prisoner (the "Odessa Komsomol" case) and served an 11-year prison sentence for his revolutionary activities, where he had been tortured. The fact that the persecution of A.V. Gerasimov continued even under the fourth part of the Ukrainian leadership, confirms the anti-Communist, deeply anti-peoples character of the Ukrainian government since the 1990s.
Alexander Gerasimov was severely injured in a fire in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa on May 2, 2014, and has had lengthy treatment for his injuries. We are very concerned about the state of his health.
The CC AUCPB declares A.V. Gerasimov a political prisoner and we are calling for his immediate release.

- Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU) (the largest of all the leftist parties in Ukraine at the time of the fascist coup in February 2014, where there were about 100 thousand members (according to the party), and at that time in view of the Crimea and the territories which are now controlled by the DPR and LPR). Actually it works in a semi-underground situation. After the adoption of the law on "de-communization" - party newspapers are not available (no central or regional), agitation stall work is not being conducted. Noticeable are single, spot events, such as pickets by the US embassy in Kiev or on June 22.
- Progressive Socialist Party (Vitrenko) - is in deep crisis since the late 2000s. Party newspaper has been published since 2011. Apparently, the only activity of the party - to maintain news feeds on their party website - vitrenko.org
- AUCPB -Ukraine –On 28.11.14, A.A. Mayevsky the Secretary of the Central Committee of the AUCPB for Ukraine, Moldova and Transdniestria was arrested -, currently the newspaper of the AUCPB for Ukraine “RKP” "Workers' and Peasants' Truth has been banned and has ceased production. Party website - vkpb.net.ua - is not working.
- Workers’ Party of Ukraine (Marxist-Leninist) (left split from the Communist Party in 2010, on the basis of the All-Ukrainian Union of Workers (FAR)). Chairman and chief editor of the party newspaper "Working Class" was arrested the ("for the support of separatism"). The newspaper itself is prohibited and stopped publishing in August 2014. The website of the newspaper - rk.org.ua - is not working.
- The "Borotba" - party was banned in summer 2014 and went underground. The newspaper "Borotba" has not been produced since. The website - http://borotba.su/ - works, but in the section "contacts" listed only e-mail and mobile phone.
- the Union of Communists of Ukraine (SCU) - previously published a good theoretical magazine "Marxism and modernity" - the organization's website http://un-comm-ukr.ucoz.ru/ has not been updated since March 2014
- Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of Ukraine (the PC (B) U) - breakaway from the AUCPB in 1994, the party was active mainly in Dnepropetrovsk. Site of the newspaper is not updated, at least since 2013 - http://pkbu.ucoz.ru/
What we have today is: the Communist Party of Ukraine is trying to create on its basis a kind of neo-left-social democratic party "Left March". I do not know how they manage this in a de facto fascist regime in Ukraine.
There are a number of one-man band, carnival organizations, Trotskyist and anarchist clowns (who ran to help the "euromaidan" and supported it), but these are all sects made up of 5-10 people each. As a serious amount, it’s not worth considering these clowns !!!
Donetsk Peoples Republic Communists

Note from AUCPB editorial: The situation in Ukraine remains very serious. The junta has launched a real fascist terror against all leftists, without distinction of the political spectrum. Even the moderate Communist Party of Ukraine is unable to resist "in the legal field". In the material cite above, there are no examples of the many attacks by fascist thugs on communists, secretaries of district and regional committees of the Communist Party and Komsomol organizations, or examples of massacres and murders. All these crimes are yet to be compiled but they will be and will be investigated after the victory over the fascist junta in Kiev.
The atmosphere of terror in which our comrades have to operate in Ukraine, dictate the need for the communists to find new forms and ways to fight. The time for legitimate protests and demonstrations, and parliamentary games with the bourgeoisie has ended.
However, even in such conditions, the underground anti-fascist struggle continues. We support with all our strength all of our comrades – communists and ant-fascists of Ukraine. We say to you, comrades, stand firm! We wish you only victory, a speedy victory.

On June 12, 2015 on the initiative of the Communist Party of Ukraine in Kiev, the Constituent Assembly of the founders of the All-Ukrainian public association of left and centre-left political parties and public organizations of the "LEFT OPPOSITION" was held.
The work meeting was attended by heads and representatives of the five political parties and thirteen public organizations.
The meeting decided to: establish an All-Ukrainian association of left and centre-left parties, public organizations and other representatives of civil society, "LEFT OPPOSITION".
Participants of the meeting approved the text of the Manifesto of the All-Ukrainian public association "LEFT OPPOSITION" in which they stated to join forces for the sake of Ukraine and protect the rights of compatriots for peace, prosperity and security.
Among the priorities of the new association - the immediate cessation of bloodshed in the east of the country, the peaceful settlement of the armed conflict on the basis of the steady implementation of the Minsk Agreement, and the decentralization of power.
For the sake of overcoming the crisis in the future of Ukraine, the "left opposition" will insist on the implementation of socio-economic model of state development based on the principles of social justice and democracy; to return to state ownership of strategic enterprises stolen by the oligarchs and the creation of new jobs; towards the restoration of the modern system of free health care and education.
Participants of the meeting also said they would jointly defend the course of domestic and foreign policy to meet the principles of the Declaration of State Sovereignty of Ukraine and aimed at promoting a non-aligned (neutral) status.
In order to unite Ukraine and overcome discord, which is born out of a regime of nationalists and oligarchs, "the Left Opposition" will demand the provision of Russian as the second state language, will strongly oppose the mockery of historical truth, humiliation military and labour feats of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War, and rehabilitation and glorification of Nazi accomplices invaders.
The Constituent Assembly formed the Coordinating council of the association.
As co-chairmen of the "The LEFT OPPOSITION " were elected Petro Symonenko and Natalia Vitrenko, Georgy Kryuchkov, Rudolf Povarnitsyn and Valery Soldatenko.
Given the seething political terror and repression in Ukraine, members of the constituent assembly, "LEFT OPPOSITION" adopted the following statement.

Press office
Manifesto of the All-Ukrainian Association of left and centre-left political parties and public organizations "LEFT OPPOSITION"
Friday, June 12, 2015 - 18:07

The course of domestic and foreign policy, which is currently being taken in Ukraine, especially after the February (2014) coup, is leadings our country towards loss of state sovereignty, division and fratricidal civil war, economic collapse, social and ethnic genocide which threatens the collapse of Ukraine and its use by external forces as a provocateur of a third world war.
By signing the Association Agreement with the European Union, and dutifully carrying out the draconian demands of the International Monetary Fund, Ukraine has lost its economic and political independence. She actually is under foreign control. Its internal and external policies are defined by the United States, the international financial oligarchy.
Implementing the so-called reforms of a bankrupt model of peripheral neoliberal capitalism, rejecting integration with the countries of the Customs Union, Ukraine has condemned itself to de-industrialization, the seizure of public property by oligarchic clans, created by several generations of Soviet people, the loss of millions of jobs, poverty and extinction of the population. Today, the gross domestic product of Ukraine does not even reach 60% of the 1990 level. The domestic industry has been destroyed, and its leading export-oriented industry has been destroyed. The financial system of the country has been brought to default. Super exploitation of manpower is one of the highest in the world and pay at the level of the poorest African countries. Health services and education are virtually inaccessible for the majority of the population. The course of building a mono-national state, the national-chauvinist imposition of ideology has led to a total violation of the Constitution of Ukraine, along with the rules and principles of international law, mass population discrimination along linguistic, national, territorial, and confessional lines. The Ukrainian state has been unable to reliably protect the legal rights, lives and safety of its citizens.
The adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with gross violations of the constitutional procedure and the introduction of the Law "On the condemnation of the Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and prohibition of the promotion of their symbolism" "On the legal status and the celebration of the "memory of fighters for Ukrainian independence in the twentieth century", "to commemorate the victory over the Nazis in World War II of 1939-1945", "access to the archives of repressive organs of the communist totalitarian regime's 1917-1991" - is not only a reflection of the totalitarian nature of the ruling regime now in Ukraine, but also cynical falsification of history and review of decisions of the Nuremberg Military Tribunal, the challenge to the world community. Introduction to the violation of the Constitution of censorship, manipulation of public consciousness, intimidation and persecution of dissidents, the persecution of the canonical Orthodox Church, anti-constitutional ban on political parties, persecution and physical violence with ideological and political opponents, of course, extremely dangerous violations of generally accepted in the civilized world of standards and norms of democracy, deprivation of the people of Ukraine to free expression.
In these circumstances, we, representatives of opposition political parties and public organizations, declare the merger of our efforts WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE PUBLIC ASSOCIATION "LEFT OPPOSITION" in order to save UKRAINE AND PROTECTION OF RIGHTS of our compatriots for peace, prosperity and security in the their country, freedom of speech and belief, a fair trial, truly democratic elections, building social justice, democracy, the rule of law.
We will seek above all an immediate end to the bloodshed in the east of the country, the peaceful settlement of the conflict based on the steady fulfilment of the Minsk Agreement, and the decentralization of power.
We believe that to ensure lasting peace in Ukraine and bring it out of a deep, comprehensive crisis back into the circle of the advanced countries of the continent is impossible without the restoration of good-neighborly, equal and mutually beneficial relations with the Russian Federation and Belarus. It is with them, unlike the US and EU countries, that we share a common history, culture, spirituality, civilizational values. History has proven that the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine remained only in the unity of our countries and brotherly peoples.
We believe that social to stop genocide, stop the destruction of the national economy is impossible without abandoning the neo-liberal course of pseudo-reforms under the dictates of the West. We advocate for the implementation of new industrialization of Ukraine on the basis of modern technological innovation, drawing on domestic intelligence, human, natural and technological resources. Our alternative to neo-liberalism is a socio-economic model based on principles of social justice and democracy.
We stand by a COURSE OF DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN POLICY, which is consistent with the principles of the Declaration on the sovereignty of Ukraine with a guarantee of its non-aligned (neutral) status; Interethnic relations based on the principles of international law and the provisions of the Declaration of Rights of Nationalities of Ukraine; STATUS OF RUSSIAN LANGUAGE as the second state language.
We are against humiliation and betrayal of military and labour feats of our fathers and grandfathers who defeated the Nazi invaders in World War II and with their victorious labour revived our Motherland from the ruins and lifted her throughout the years of Soviet power to the top of the economic world, in scientific and spiritual progress. We are categorically against the plantation in our country of neo-Nazism, and the rehabilitation and glorification of Nazi collaborators during the occupation.
We call on the political parties, public organizations, and all those to whom the FATE OF HOMELAND is dear, who share our assessment of the modern political and socio-economic situation and put forth in this manifesto OBJECTIVES – to join the Patriotic Association "LEFT OPPOSITION".
Adopted by the Constituent Assembly of the association

FRIENDS and comrades marked the 62nd anniversary of the Korean people’s victory in the Fatherland Liberation War in London on Saturday 18th July. The meeting, called by the Korean Friendship Association and the Juché Idea Study Group heard an opening from Dermot Hudson of the KFA and a report-back of a recent trip to the DPR Korea by Shaun Pickford.
Dermot Hudson said: "The Fatherland Liberation War referred to as the Korean War in the imperialist countries was provoked by the US imperialists on 25th June 1950 and lasted three years. It was a most intense war, one of the fiercest wars of the 20th century. Indeed it was a third world war in miniature in which the two systems in the world, capitalism and socialism fought each other.
“The US imperialists along with troops from 15 of their vassal states attempted to destroy the young Democratic People's Republic of Korea in its cradle, an obscene and barbarous war in which a big power and its minions tried to pulverise into submission a small country.”
Dermot also spoke about the 21st anniversary of the demise of great leader President Kim Il Sung: "President Kim Il Sung was a great man, a great leader, a great philosopher who created the Juché Idea and authored the Songun idea.
“He wrote over 1,800 works, and was the father of modern Korea, indeed Korea is the Kim Il Sung nation. He was respected as one of the outstanding leaders of the international communist and working class movement.”
Shaun Pickford said: “I was able to return to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea after an interval of three years and saw immense improvements in the cultural and living standards of the Korean People. All the progress that is being realised in the DPRK, is based on socialist principles and self-reliance.
“The Supreme Leader of the DPRK, Marshal Kim Jong Un, is working continuously for the welfare of the Korean people and spares nothing for the well-being of the workers, farmers and intellectuals. Such a leader as Kim Jong Un, cannot be found elsewhere in the world, as the DPRK leader is always putting the people first in everything”.
The meeting also received a message from Cllr Damien Biggs, East of England regional party secretary and National Executive Committee member of the Socialist Labour Party.
A very lively discussion followed with questions and answers and concluded with the adoption of a solidarity message to DPRK leader Kim Jong Un.

MEMBERS and supporters of the UK Korean Friendship Association held a very successful picket – numbers double previous turn-outs –of the United States embassy on Thursday 25th June to mark the start of the Month of Solidarity with the Korean people and the 65th anniversary of the start of provocation of the great Fatherland Liberation War.

It was supported by the Association of Supporters of Songun Policies UK (ASSPUK), the Juché International Study Group of England (JISGE) and the New Communist Party including general secretary Andy Brooks and Central Committee member Theo Russell.
Members of the RCPB (ML) and the CPGB (ML) were also present.
Dermot Hudson, who chairs the UK KFA and the JISGE made a short speech introducing the picket explaining it was part of the Month of Solidarity with the Korean people and it was to mark the 65th anniversary of the start of the Korean War (Fatherland Liberation War).
US troops still occupy south Korea today. Comrade Hudson said that at the same time KFA members in Ireland were also picketing the US embassy in Dublin.
Dermot Hudson also said: "The US imperialists, the ringleader of the world imperialism and international reactionaries, provoked a war in Korea on the 25th of June 1950 by instigating their south Korean puppets to attack the young Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
“The US imperialists were hungry for profits and conquest. The US imperialists fought an unjust aggressive war against the Korean people.
“The US imperialists launched a war of conquest against the DPRK, a war to destroy the Juché-based people's democratic system in the DPRK as well to destroy socialism in Asia and the world.
“The Korean people, led by the great revolutionary leader Marshal Kim Il Sung, a true military strategic genius and ever-victorious iron-willed and brilliant fought a fierce anti-imperialist and anti-US struggle against US imperialism and the allied forces of international reaction.
“It was a fierce class struggle against the enemies of the people. The Korean people fought a national liberation war against the Yankee imperialist invaders, a war of justice for independence and freedom and also a war to reunify the sacred motherland.
“The Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean people proved to a crucible of the Songun idea.
“We condemn the appalling barbarity of the US imperialists during the Fatherland Liberation War.
“We denounce their crimes of massacring civilians, use of biological and chemical weapons: 35,383 people were murdered by the US at Sinchon-ri and 1,050 people at Susan-ri (one third of the population of the area), just to give a few examples.
“The US imperialists tried to exterminate the Korean people by carrying out the war that they had long planned.
“History will curse forever the US imperialists as sub-human savages and criminals as well as an enemy of humanity and progress. Indeed US imperialism is the ringleader of aggression and war, as proved by the recent racial violence and oppression of black people.
“It is the US that is the biggest human rights violator in the world.
“The US imperialists continue to occupy south Korea to this very day, ignoring the will of the Korean people and the voices of world progressives. The US imperialists have committed crimes in south Korea too numerous to mention, but these include murder, rape and theft.
“They are exploiting the south Korean people by taking huge sums of money in so-called "upkeep expenses".
“The US imperialists have introduced anthrax into south Korea in order to commit genocide against the Korean nation. This is a horrendous crime. The US imperialists have also tried to stifle the DPRK using the ‘human rights’ issue and used the United Nations against the DPRK."
Andy Brooks, general secretary of the New Communist Party, thanked everyone for coming saying it was a very successful. He said that US had caused the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula by reneging on agreements with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The following slogans were shouted: “US out of Korea,” “Yankee go home,” “Korea is one,” “Long live the Workers' Party of Korea,” “Long live Marshal Kim Jong Un,” “Long live the worker’s paradise of the DPRK,” “Down with US imperialism,” “Down with the fascist American regime”.
