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

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

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


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

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

HANDS OFF THE DONETSK AND LUGANSK PEOPLE'S REPUBLICS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hands off Donetsk and Lugansk!

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

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

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

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

For Bolshevism No 8 (137) - August 2014

Socialist Revolution

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

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

E.A. Fatyanova, Secretary of the CC AUCPB

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

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

CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE
BULGARIAN WORKERS' PARTY (COMMUNIST)

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

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

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

The Communist Youth of Poland categorically condemns the persecution of Comrade Mayevsky - Editor of "Workers 'and Peasants' Truth" and activist in the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks by the Bandera junta ruling in Kiev.

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

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

EDITORIAL "Workers and Peasants 'Truth'

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


DPRK NEWS

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

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



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

For Bolshevism -No 7 (136) July 2014

For Bolshevism inside the communist and workers’ movement JULY No 7 (136)
All- Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks
Workers of all countries, Unite!



UKRAINE AFTER THE ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS OF MAY 25, 2014
The working people came to the fore front of HISTORY on May 25 in Ukraine where presidential elections took place, which the junta prepared in a hurry, trying to quickly legalize itself in the eyes of Western "partners".
The voting result - a victory to oligarch Poroshenko - was quite predictable. President-elect Poroshenko funded "evromaydan" before successfully passing the test of allegiance to the United States, and on May 25 was only formally approved by the electoral farce. On May 25 Ukraine had only a changeover of power from one oligarchy group to another more pro - American oriented one. If the previously oligarchic bourgeoisie hired officials to implement the policies of the largest capital, it is now the largest capital that stakes its claims to political power itself, not wanting to trust hired officials. The petty bourgeoisie was thus partly on the same side with the proletariat of Donbass.
The May 25 elections were accompanied by mass fraud, egregious violations of electoral procedures, and the conducting by Kiev of a military "anti-terrorist" bloody bandit military operation to pacify the rebellious people of Donbass.
Barack Obama and European leaders of leading imperialist states - sponsors of the anti-state fascist coup on February 22, along with the bloody anti-terrorist operations against the Dontetsk Peoples Republic (DPR) and Lugansk Peoples Republic (LPR), and the heinous burning alive of civilians in Odessa on May 2 - rushed immediately to recognize the "legitimacy" of the elections. It does not matter to the West that in Donbass (6.6 million people) did not participate in the vote, or a number of other regions had a turnout of less than 50 % of voters, that voting in some places actually went at gunpoint (with threats from the "right sector" - "if you do not come to vote, we will come to you ... ").
One of the first orders of Obama's to the newly appointed President Poroshenko was the strengthening of the military operation against the people of Donbass using rockets, bombs, multiple rocket launchers and other heavy weaponry – which drowned Donetsk, Slovyansk and other areas in blood.
The actions of Nazi Poroshenko that came to power brought a final end to the possibility of creating a federal or even confederal state of Ukraine.
A statement by Yatsenuk (premiere in the new government) on the introduction into each ministry another additional deputy minister - "consultant on European integration" - indicates complete surrender Ukraine to its plunder by the US and the West, a failure to conduct independent policy and the voluntary surrender of the Ukrainian people into slavery.
What is being now done to Ukraine by the oligarchy of Nazis Kolomoysky, Poroshenko and their associates (pro-American forces) can not but cause a mass explosion of popular indignation and strengthening of ubification processes not only in the South-East of Ukraine, but also across the entire country. In view of the imminent total economic collapse, there is the approaching terrible impoverishment of the working people of Ukraine. The "West" is not interested in improving the lives of the people and thus any hope of any help is illusory. This is evidenced by at least the EU demand for reduction of social benefits to the population, reducing wages, rising prices for everything and so forth as one of the main conditions for granting Ukraine the financial "aid".
Antiwar protests in the country are gaining strength.
Today at the forefront of history enters the working people ...
On May 24 in Donetsk at the Congress of People's Representatives the creation of Novorossiya – a Union of two independent people's republics - Donetsk and Luhansk took place. It was announced that other areas can join the Union, as soon as they pass a referendum on independence.
The Congress of People's Representatives received delegates from Kharkov, Zaporozhye, Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa, etc. (145 delegates from 8 regions of the South-East of Ukraine). The Congress on May 24 also created the "Popular Front" – a social and political unification of the South-East which will be extended to other regions of Ukraine.
The tough opposition by the insurgent people to the criminal oligarchy in Ukraine is increasing. On May 27, miners in Donetsk announced an indefinite strike to demand the withdrawal of junta troops from the territory of Donbass and on May 28, they held a peace march under the slogan "Fascism will not pass!" and a rally during which that pledged to enforce its demands with weapons in hands .
The war against fascism is becoming more of a class war. In the DPR before the presidential election, an intention was announced to nationalize the property of the oloigarchs, the common peoples property that was stolen from the people during the destruction of the USSR.
With a further aggravation of the situation in Ukraine, class war can naturally turn into a revolution. "Every revolution signifies a drastic change in the lives of the vast masses of the people. If such a revolution is not matured, then a real revolution can not happen." (V.I. Lenin, Poln.sobr.soch., V34, p.55). According to V.I. Lenin (ibid.), "... During a revolution, millions and tens of millions of people every week will learn more than in a year of a usual, sleepy life." It is this rapid revolutionary insight of the people, the working class and the miners of Donbass that is happening in Ukraine. And the coming revolution can become and it will become a socialist revolution.
Down with fascism on Ukrainian land!
Down with the fascist dictatorship - the power of capitalist oligarchs!
Workers of Ukraine, unite!

APPEAL
By the Bureau of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (CC AUCPB) for Belarus and the Kaliningrad region and patriotic public association "Fatherland" to the leadership of the Republic of Belarus in connection with a plan to send Belarusian observers to the Ukraine presidential elections on May 25, 2014
As we learned from the media, to monitor the early presidential elections in Ukraine, that were scheduled for May 25, 2014, observers would be sent from the Central Election Commission of Belarus. It should be noted that the position of our ally Russia on this issue remained more consistent and principled, as stated in the State Duma: the Russian court decided not to send observers to the elections, while the bloodshed in Ukraine continues.
The decision to hold early presidential elections on May 25, 2014 was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada after the coup d'├ętat by the neo-bandera paramilitary troops of the "right sector" and "Freedom" party thus trampling over the agreement of February 21, 2014, signed by the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych with officials and foreign ministers of Germany, France and Poland, and representatives of the Ukrainian political opposition that called for the disarmament of illegal military formations and withdrawal of enforcement structures from the centre of Kiev.
After the coup in the country, an open terrorist fascist dictatorship was established, so decisions made by Rada deputies under pressure (practically at gunpoint) and threats of physical violence against them and their families, can not be considered legitimate. The purpose of the current presidential election is to make the current fascist power legitimate and accountable to the U.S., the EU and NATO. In these circumstances, when the power in Ukraine has become totally dependent on Zionist pro-Western circles of the Ukrainian oligarchy, there is no doubt that whoever is chosen from "independence " circles, it will be a protege of Washington. (This is indeed how it turned out with Poroshenko - FB). Apparently, the U.S. government did not in vain, as the State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psak put it, listed the Ukrainian government about $ 11.4 million for the organization of the presidential election, which would naturally be "free and fair".
The leadership of NATO does not sleep either. Four days before the designated election, sensational news was spread around the world: NATO troops had sent its experts to Ukrainian nuclear power plants, and world opinion expressed surprise that working in the atomic sphere of Ukraine is the NATO military block, and not the IAEA.
As regards the possibility of legitimate elections in Ukraine today, we can not but agree with one of the statements made by President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko on 23.03.2014 at a polling station during the local elections: "What can be done to unite Ukraine? Ukraine today needs help. It is necessary to hold normal elections. I do not believe that it can pass as normal presidential election in a situation where there are several law enforcement groups and subdivisions."
Yes, indeed, under a punitive operation by armed forces deployed by the Kiev junta against the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, where the people overwhelmingly supported the proclamation of state independence of the republics and refused to participate in the planned Ukrainian presidential elections election, a sham electoral process even in bourgeois democracy. No wonder, seeing all this, well-known Ukrainian politicians O. Tsarev and P. Simonenko withdrew from the presidential race.
However, the illegitimacy of the elections in Ukraine is still not the main problem for its people. The main trouble is that the shadow of medieval barbarism is looming over Ukraine. The republic after 70 years of liberation from fascism is again under its heel. The whole world was shaken by what the Ukrainian national fascists created in Odessa, which now this entire tragedy is called the Odessa Khatyn. Blood runs cold in one’s veins when you see footage of the execution of civilians in the South- East of Ukraine, not to forget the ruthless murder of police officers and residents in the city of Mariupol on sacred Victory Day of May 9. Unfortunately, in the Belarusian media, unlike the Russian media, little is written about this. And this is in a partisan-republic, where one in three people were killed during the Great Patriotic War.
We must not forget the lessons of history. Hitler's Nazis to come to power not only using assault troops, financed by Krupp, Flick, Thyssen and others (the prototype in Ukraine are neo-bander gangs of the "right sector" (D. Yarosh ) and "Freedom" party (Svoboda) (O. Tyagnibok) now funded by Kolomoisky, Firtash, Taruta ...). Hitler's National Socialists also used legitimate presidential elections and parliamentary elections to the Reichstag towards the establishment of a fascist dictatorship in Germany, where deputies were elected (the spiritual heirs of the Nazis, representatives of neo-bander extreme nationalist parties are also currently have a significant number of seats in the Ukrainian parliament – Upper house).
The election on May 25, 2014 in Ukraine, which the imperialist reactionaries aimed to hold, will not eliminate the crisis in Ukraine. On the contrary, a situation that may arise after them will exacerbate the international situation in Europe and throughout the world to the limit with the prospect of a new world war.
Summing up the above, the Patriotic public association "Fatherland" appealed to the leadership of the republic with the demand not to send observers from Belarus to Ukraine 's presidential elections May 25, 2014.
The authority of the Republic of Belarus will only grow if its leaders condemn the fascist regime established in Ukraine and call on the international community to organize a Nuremberg trial of major neo-banderite criminals.

PUTIN CHICKENED OUT AND PLACED THE PEOPLE OF DONBASS AT THE MERCY OF THE JUNTA
Donbass Fighting On
First of all, we welcome the results of the national referendum in DPR (Donetsk Peoples Republic) and LPR (Lugansk Peoples Republic) and congratulate the people of the region, who declared loudly about unity in the struggle against the present-day, now American fascism. Results of the successfully held referendum (in the People's Republic of Donetsk with a turnout of 74.87 % of the electorate, 89.07 % voted "for" national sovereignty of the DPR, and in the People's Republic of Lugansk with a turnout of 81 %, 90.53 % votd "for" state sovereignty of the LPR) today are recognized only by Cyprus and the Crimea. Russia remains silent, forgetting about its recent slogans - "We are one!" etc.
Fighting Donbass never received humanitarian aid from Russia, to which an appeal and a request for help was made. On 14 May 2014 the Russian State Duma in the person of its Chairman (Speaker) S. Naryshkin declared only parliamentary discussions with parliaments of other countries (about parliamentary useless demagoguery).
President Vladimir Putin "DID NOT HEAR" the call for help. We also have not had a response to our open letter to the President on May 6 - "Prevent a humanitarian catastrophe in the South- East of Ukraine." It turns out that Putin chickened out, because he is afraid of an angry shout from across the ocean in Washington, and instead placed the people of Donbass at the mercy of the fascist junta of Kiev.
The same U.S. which organized the brutal chaos in the Ukraine, and spent billions of dollars over the past 20 years on the preparation and implementation of an armed coup in Kiev, does not want to miss out on tasty morsels and so coveted a prey - resource-rich Ukraine "in the underbelly" of Russia and continue the bloody orgy by strangers’ hands (as always) – in the war against the people of the South- East, directing their obedient corrupt puppets in Kiev.
Rebellious Donbass is not giving up fighting. The number of civilian casualties is growing, having being shot at by heavy weapons (mortars, heavy machine guns , grenade launchers, multiple launch rocket systems "Grad" and howitzers "Acacia", BMD, helicopters, etc.) by the army of Ukraine sent from Kiev along with well-armed bandits of the "right sector" and other vermin formed in the "Volunteer Army of Ukraine."
The war in South- East Ukraine is not a civil war, but a war against fascism, nurtured in the U.S. over the last 20 years in Ukraine. Nurtured as thugs and any criminal scum trained up in special military camps in western Ukraine, Belarus, Poland ... In Donbass is a class war against thieves of the criminal oligarchy, swallowing up all the country's wealth.
Donbass is known for its revolutionary and anti-fascist tradition. It was here, in what is now the People's Republic of Lugansk, in Krasnodon during the Great Patriotic War that was formed and operated the underground Komsomol organization "Young Guard". On the land of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics is now fighting the organized working class.
Donbass workers have realized that freedom and independence do not fall from the sky, they have to fight for them.
In early May, workers of all seven mines in the town of Krasny Luch instead of working in the mine arrived at the checkpoints with guns to rise up to defend their land. On the eve of the referendum, five mines were taken under the control of the insurgent workers - Bulavin, Olhovatsky, Poltavaskya, Enakievskaya, Ugledarskaya and also Enakievskiy Metallurgical Plant owned by oligarch Akhmetov and Enakievskiy Coke Plant.
The mayor of Sloviansk, Ponomarev, spoke of the need to nationalize industry: "So no one has any illusions, I want to say that the entire industry in the city will be nationalized. We can not leave the industrial potential of the city in the hands of unscrupulous businessmen." DPR Prime Minister Alexander Boroday also spoke of his intention to nationalize property of the tycoons sponsoring the Kiev junta.
Crimes committed by American fascism in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria and now in the lands of Novo- and Malorossiya (New – and Little Russia) suggest that global capital is gradually losing its power over the world and therefore has become especially dangerous and aggressive.
The world Zionist supreme government, which the Ukrainian oligarchy belongs to, has stated its claim to the wealth of Ukraine and the direct destruction of its people. Without waiting for victory, the U.S. hawks have begun to divide the coveted prey.
The duty of ALL honest people is to help the just struggle of peoples against American fascism.
We deeply empathize with the tragedy of the insurgent people of Donbass and wish them VICTORY in spite of the unequal balance of force.

Miners from Krasnodon get pay rise from "Metinvest"
Miners on strike since April 22 from the association "Krasnodonugol", part of the group "Metinvest" of the richest businessman Rinat Akhmetov, Ukraine, on April 27 unblocked mine administration building and started back to work.
"The parties have agreed that there will be increased wages by twenty percent, and created a commission on bonuses and the adoption of a new collective bargaining agreement," the union said in a statement.
On April 22 at the five mines of the association "Krasnodonugol” a strike began with the demand for a salary increase. 80 percent of the miners did not come to work and blocked the administration building of "Krasnodonugol." During the first 3 days of downtime "Krasnodonugol" lost about 16 million hryvnia, according to company representatives.
"Krasnodonugol" is the largest company in Ukraine (now Luhansk People's Republic) coking coal. The composition of "Krasnodonugol" includes five coal mining units, two coal preparation plants, repair, transport and energy units. The company has its own medical service, as well as a developed social sphere.
At the coal mining and service units of "Krasnodonugol" work about 15.5 thousand people.

In the Donetsk Republic, mines and factories have been nationalized
As the official "Twitter " account of the People's Republic of Donetsk reports, on May 8 in Yenakievo five mines had passed into control of the insurgent people: Bulavin , Olhovatsky, Poltava Enakievskaya, Ugledarskaya.
Apart from them, the people placed under their control Enakievskiy Metallurgical Plant, owned by oligarch Akhmetov and Enakievskiy Coke Plant.
According to Ukrainian media, flags of the Donetsk People's Republic are flying from buildings.

At the Petrovskyaya mine a solidarity strike was declared.
On May 8 at 15:00, the miners went on strike. Work at the coal enterprise was temporarily suspended.
Thus, the miners showed their solidarity with the DPR and supported the referendum on the status of the Donetsk region on May 11.
How long the strikes will continue is still unknown.
The Petrovskya mine is a coal mining company (in Donetsk). It has been in operation since 1903. The production capacity is 300 thousand tons per year. Actual production is abound 123 tonnes (2003).

Kiev drivers sent stale bread to officials in protest.
On April 29 in Kiev a protest took place under the name "Bread and water - driver's food." The organizers of the event were the "Free Trade Union of Railwaymen." The purpose of the event was to draw attention to the authorities and the public that the embezzlers are stealing proceeds from "Kyivpastrans" but for drivers there remains virtually nothing.
The action was attended by drivers of KP "Kyivpastrans."
Protesters gathered outside the metro station "Khreschatyk" from where they proceeded to Shevchenko RGA to hand over to chairman of KGGA Bondarenko a symbolic loaf of stale bread.

Journalists, observers and election commissioners noted an unusually high turnout - in localities took part in the referendum up to 90 % of the population. In the photos from the event (Donetsk, Lugansk Mariupol , etc.) you could see huge queues of well-dressed citizens wishing to vote. In Moscow, the work of the polling station was extended until midnight due to the influx of citizens.
Some participants in the referendum, according to them, had voted for the first time since 1980.
Despite the military junta provocation (a checkpoint under fire in Slavyamsk on the night of May 11, an arson attack on a military unit in Mariupol, attempts to disrupt voting in the Luhansk region in the Novoaydarsky district by an armored invasion by the junta into Krasnoarmiysk where employees punitive battalion "Dnepr" killed two and seriously and injured a citizen), the referendum was held. Donbass residents exercised their right to self-determination.

KCNA COMMENTARY ON OBAMA'S S. KOREA VISIT
Pyongyang, April 29 (KCNA) -- U.S. President Obama visited south Korea on April 25-26.
Early in April, an official for East Asian and Pacific affairs at the U.S. State Department claimed, to justify Obama's Asia visit, that there should be no doubt about the U.S. commitment to protecting its Asian allies. Then, was his visit prompted by a good intention for regional peace? It's not at all.
Obama's recent junket to south Korea is censured as a crime because it egged on the treacherous Park Geun Hye regime to aggravate the unstable situation of the Korean Peninsula and the region.
This visit, the fourth after the emergence of his administration, is bringing dark clouds of conflict and nuclear arms race to the region, as part of the implementation of the U.S. pivot to Asia-Pacific strategy.
Its reactionary purpose was fully revealed by Obama's remarks that the U.S. would cooperate with its allies and partners to tighten the pressure on the DPRK.
During his junket, he had confabs to further strengthen the U.S- Japan-south Korea cooperation under the pretext of "threat" from the DPRK. The keynote of confabs was that the three parties would continue intensifying their political, diplomatic and military cooperation and deepen their "alliance" in aspects of joint military exercises and missile defense.
Obama also inspected the U.S.-south Korea "Combined Forces Command" in Ryongsan, Seoul, with Park. It was the first time for the U.S. president to visit the "command" since its birth in 1978. During the inspection, he said the U.S. would not hesitate to use the military strength in order to defend its allies and the way of its life, and called for the "powerful U.S.-south Korea combined defense capability".
His assertion is little different from an awful logic that a gangster protects the owner of a house.
Nevertheless, Park, a witch, was engaged in confrontation with the fellow countrymen, slandering the DPRK more viciously than her master, Obama.
At the "summit" and "joint press conference", she took issue with the DPRK over its nuclear deterrence with the assertion that the "line of simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force would be bound to failure", keeping mum about the U.S. nukes.
She even went the length of crying out that Obama's trip to south Korea would be a "resolute message to the north's provocation", calling on its neighboring countries to take stronger measure against it.
The U.S. made a "promise" to reexamine the period of transfer of wartime operation control, scheduled to be expired by late 2015, in the plea of jointly countering "threat" from the DPRK as demanded by the south Korean puppets.
The south Korean puppets asked the U.S. to further postpone the period, talking about what they called "security environment".
Such disgraceful behavior of Park Geun Hye in league with the outside forces is a treachery that declared the all-out confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north while disregarding the opportunity presented by the nation.
Park is doomed to the same miserable destiny met by the "Yusin" dictator.
The U.S. and the south Korean puppets can never evade the blame for the serious consequences to be entailed by their anti-DPRK plot laid with Obama's trip as an occasion.

MONSTROUS CRIMES COMMITTED BY U.S. AGAINST KOREANS BLASTED
Pyongyang, May 5 (KCNA) -- The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea and the North Headquarters of the Nationwide Special Committee for Probing the Truth behind GIs' Massacres on Monday released a memorandum disclosing the monstrous crimes and hideous human rights abuses perpetrated by the U.S. against the Korean nation for a long period.
According to it, the U.S. launched its aggression against Korea by infiltrating its aggressor ship General Sherman in 1866. This was followed by its ceaseless plunder and invasion by its Shenandoah and other warships in 1867, 1868 and 1871.
Finding it hard to attain its aggressive purpose due to resistance of the Korean people, the U.S. sided with Japan during the 1894-1895 Sino-Japanese War and 1904-1905 Russo-Japanese War, openly supporting Japan's aggression of Korea. In 1905 the U.S. concluded the "Katsura-Taft Treaty" which recognized Japan's occupation of Korea, using it as a shock brigade for invading Korea.
After occupying south Korea under the mask of "liberator" in September of 1945, the U.S. started its bestial atrocities against the Korean nation.
It openly revealed its ambition for aggression of the DPRK and finally launched invasion of the DPRK on June 25, 1950.
The U.S. suffered a disgraceful defeat in the Korean war but has fully turned south Korea into its colony and a tundra of human rights, keeping it under its occupation since the post-war period.
It massively introduced all types of WMDs including nukes, turning south Korea into the world's biggest nuclear arsenal.
It has staged ceaseless dangerous nuclear war drills for decades, posing constant danger of nuclear disaster to the Korean nation.
The U.S. imperialists have committed unheard-of monstrous massacres of Koreans since they launched aggression against Korea.
The U.S. imperialist aggressors killed Koreans by the cruelest and most brutal methods baffling human imagination during the Korean war.
During the Korean war, they killed at least 1.23 million people in the northern half of Korea and more than 1.24 million in south Korea.
They committed sexual abuses against Korean women to satisfy their carnal desire and mercilessly killed them even in the vortex of the war.
They committed hair-raising atrocities against many innocent people, lording it over south Korea after the war.
There occurred ceaseless GI crimes last year alone. To cite just a few examples, GIs gang-raped a woman in her twenties on a subway electric car, GIs made shooting spree against passers-by in the center of Seoul, driving their car over a local policeman before taking to flight and a drunken GI drove his car at breakneck speed, causing a traffic accident, and beat the victim who chased him.
The U.S. imperialists perpetrated barbarous air raids during the Korean war, massacring Koreans and reducing the country to ashes.
The flying corps of their air force made 800 000 sorties and those of their marines and navy over 250 000 sorties against the northern half of Korea in the entire period of the war. They dropped bombs and napalm bombs totaling almost 600 000 tons or 3.7 times those dropped over the Japan proper during the Pacific war.
Due to the U.S. barbarous air raids perpetrated during the Korean war 50 941 industrial establishments, 28 632 buildings of schools at all levels, 4 534 buildings of healthcare facilities including hospitals and clinics, 579 buildings of scientific research institutes, 8 163 buildings of media and cultural institutions and 2 077 226 dwelling houses were severely destroyed, 563 755 hectares of farmland devastated and 155 500 hectares of paddy and non-paddy fields decreased.
Environment was also seriously polluted due to the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces' several decades-long presence in south Korea.
The U.S. has desperately obstructed the reunification of Korea, blocked the independent development of the Korean nation and stood in the way of achieving its peace and prosperity.
The human and material damage done to the Korean nation by the U.S. aggression and crimes against humanity amounts to at least 114 trillion U.S. dollars.
The U.S. has committed too many crimes against the Korean nation to count for more than a hundred years, the memorandum said, adding there is no such country of barbarians in the world as the U.S.
The Korean nation will certainly settle accounts with the U.S., the sworn enemy, it warned.

BOURGEOIS "INDEPENDENCE" IS BONDAGE FOR WORKING PEOPLE
Ideology, Economics, Politics
On June 12, the entire Russian bourgeoisie celebrates its main festival, the day of the destruction of the Soviet Union. Namely on that day the "Declaration of State Sovereignty of the Russian Federation" was signed. Calling this "holiday" Independence Day, the country's ruling criminal "elite" cynically distorts historical facts to serve their needs and interests.
The USSR was dependent on noone. Our Soviet Motherland was fully independent in matters of foreign and domestic policy, not only provided all the necessary own citizens, but also assisted the allies in the socialist camp. Only in such a state can workers and peasants be truly free. True independence - from external loans policy of other states, etc. - our country found only with the establishment of Soviet power.
Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and their henchmen, committing a counterrevolutionary coup and establishing the dictatorship of the big bourgeoisie, made all workers fully "independent" - from the state. Now the only duty of workers is to bring profit to their masters, and the only right – to sell oneself to somehow survive.
Bourgeois "independence", whose arrival is diligently celebrated in Russia every year, has turned into the brutal exploitation of workers without any guarantees for the future. Thousands of fired workers each year annually, the closure and looting of hundreds of companies together with exorbitant price rises that has made wealth virtually inaccessible to those whose hands they are made with. That's what the advertised bourgeois "independence" is truly all about.
Only Soviet power made people truly free and independent, while giving an irreplaceable sense of stability and confidence in the future. In the field of international politics, bourgeois authorities of the Russian Federation do only what is beneficial to the imperialist government of the United States and financial corporations. Hence the massive withdrawal of military bases from the once friendly countries (Cuba, Vietnam, CIS), a fierce attack on the leadership of the DPRK on the nuclear issue, endless flirtation with Ukrainian fascist junta and, in fact, condoning her crimes against the insurgent people of Donbass, etc. Only a socialist state can be truly independent in its domestic and foreign policy.
That is why workers have absolutely nothing to celebrate today. "Independence" of bourgeois police –state Russian Federation is ephemeral, it exists for a handful of rich in power. This is their independence from their conscience, from the law and from the courts. And for the average citizen of his country, not having a few stolen millions of dollars at their disposal, it has long become a bondage from which there is no way out except from a socialist revolution. For only a revolution will return independence to Russia and all its citizens, disadvantaged by the new authorities. It is therefore essential to organize and prepare for the accomplishment of a proletarian revolution.
DOWN WITH FALSE BOURGEOIS "INDEPENDENCE"!
LONG LIVE THE COMING SOCIALIST REVOLUTION!
FOR A GENUINELY INDEPENDENT, SOVIET RUSSIA!

STATEMENT OF UK KFA, JISGE AND ASSPUK ON SOUTH KOREA'S DETENTION OF DPRK CREW MEMBERS
The UK Korean Friendship Association together with the ASSPUK and Juche
Idea Study Group of England issued a joint statement supporting the just demand of the DPRK Red Cross for the return of DPRK sailors to the DPRK;
The Central Committee of the DPRK Red Cross Society pointed out on Thursday 5th of June that crewmen of the DPRK met distress in the East Sea of Korea recently while fishing.
In this regard the DPRK side demanded the south Korean authorities send three distressed crewmen of the DPRK and their fishing boat back immediately.
But the south Korean authorities repatriated one crewman only via Panmunjom and unreasonably held two crewmen in custody, asserting "they expressed their will to defect" and the like”.
It is an intolerable human rights violation on the part of the south Korean fascist puppets to hold two sailor of the DPRK in custody and refuse to let them meet representatives of the
DPRK. It does look like a trick of the south Korean puppet reactionaries to kidnap people from the DPRK and make it look like a defection.
Our organisations, the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA, demand the south Korean
authorities return the DPRK sailors to the DPRK, their homeland.
