UN Syria-Sarin Investigator Voices Doubts – consortiumnews

More doubts about last August’s Sarin attack in Syria are being raised by the U.N.’s lead investigator who questions the number of people actually exposed to the poison gas, suggesting the incident was much more limited than claimed, writes Gareth Porter for Inter Press Service.

(RIA Novosti) Trotz Putins Appell: Donezk und Lugansk lehnen Aufschub der Referenden ab

http://de.ria.ru/politics/20140508/268448920.html

 

MOSKAU, 08. Mai .

Trotz des Appells von Russlands Präsident Wladimir Putin halten die ostukrainischen Protestregionen Donezk und Lugansk an ihren Selbstbestimmungs-Referenden am 11. Mai fest.

Der Volksrat der selbstproklamierten „Donezker Volksrepublik“ (DVR) hat am Donnerstag beschlossen, den für den kommenden Sonntag geplanten Volksentscheid nicht zu verschieben, wie Denis Puschilin, Co-Vorsitzender der DVR-Regierung, RIA Novosti mitteilte. Die meisten Ratsmitglieder hätten gegen einen Aufschub gestimmt. Auch der Bürgerrat des Gebietes Lugansk beschloss, die Volksabstimmung nicht aufzuschieben. „Das Referendum findet am 11. Mai statt. Wir bereiten uns darauf vor. Stimmzettel werden gedruckt“, teilte das Presseamt der so genannten Armee des Südostens RIA Novosti mit. „Es wird keinen Aufschub geben.“

Der russische Staatschef Putin hatte am Mittwoch nach einem Treffen mit dem OSZE-Vorsitzenden Didier Burkhalter die Anhänger der Föderalisierung in der südöstlichen Ukraine aufgerufen, die für den kommenden Sonntag geplanten Referenden zu vertagen, um die notwendigen Voraussetzungen für einen Dialog zu schaffen. Laut Putin kann eine dauerhafte Lösung in der Ukraine-Krise nur durch einen Dialog erreicht werden. Aus Kiew hieß es als Reaktion auf Putins Aufruf, noch bevor der Volksrat von Donezk seine Entscheidung getroffen hatte, dass der Militäreinsatz gegen die Regierungsgegner in südöstlichen Regionen auch dann nicht gestoppt werde, wenn die Protestregionen ihre Referenden verschieben.

Joint Statement of Communist and Workers’ Parties Statement on the reactionary developments in Ukraine

REPOST: Brussels 27/1/2014

The recent dramatic developments in Ukraine do not constitute the “victory of democracy” by the alleged “revolutionaries”, as it is being described by the mass media of the USA and the EU, but is a dangerous development, above all for the people of Ukraine themselves.

Reactionary political forces, ideological descendents of the Nazis, have risen to the political “surface” with the assistance of the EU and the USA. These are forces which apart from destroying the offices of their opponents, are planning political persecutions, and the banning of parties, above all against the communists, and even racist legislation at the expense of the Russian-speaking population, like what has been in force for the last 20 years in the countries of the “European” Baltic,  with the blatant political support of the EU.

The communist and workers’ parties that sign this Joint Statement:

  • Express our solidarity and support with the communists of Ukraine, above all with those who in many instances went on to the streets in order to defend the monuments of Lenin and the other Soviet and ant-fascist monuments, which found themselves “targeted” by the ideological “cleansing” of history being attempted by the nationalist-fascist armed groups
  • Denounce the USA and the EU regarding their blatant involvement in the internal affairs of Ukraine, regarding the direct support they provided and are providing to the armed fascist groups, supporting historical revanchism against the outcome of the 2nd World War, transforming anti-communism into their official policy, as well as beautifying the fascist groups, their criminal ideology and activity, promoting the division of the people of Ukraine with planned persecutions at the expense of the Russian-speaking of Ukraine.
  • Highlight that the positions of the opportunist forces are dangerous, which spread illusions that there could exist another “better EU’, “another better association agreement of the EU with Ukraine”. The EU, like every capitalist inter-state union, is a predatory alliance which has a deeply reactionary character can not become pro-people, and acts and will continue to act against the workers’ people’s rights and the peoples.
  • Note that the developments in Ukraine are connected to the intervention of the EU and the USA, are the results of the fierce competition of these powers with Russia for the control of markets, raw material and the country’s transport networks. However the people of Ukraine, as all the other peoples of Europe have no interests in siding with the one or the other imperialist, or the one or the other predatory alliance.

The interests of the working class and popular strata of Ukraine mean that they must prevent themselves from being “trapped” in nationalist, divisive dilemmas, on the basis of ethnic, linguistic, religious particularities and to prioritize their common class interests, to chart their path of class struggle, for their rights and socialism. Socialism remains as timely and necessary as ever. This is the perspective against every capitalist inter-state union, in order to pave the way for an economy and society that will not operate on the basis of profit, but on the basis of the needs of the workers.

«Für den Frieden in der Ukraine, Nein zum Neo-Kolonialismus» Aufruf von Kommunistische Partei der italienischen Schweiz

April 2014

Die Regierungen der EU und der USA wollen ihre politische und wirtschaftliche Krise mit einem neuen Rüstungswettlauf und mit einem neuen Krieg auf globaler Skala lösen. Sie machten sich zu Komplizen eines Putsches gegen die ukrainische Regierung, deren Wahl sie selbst als demokratisch bezeichnet hatten, jedenfalls bis vor einigen Monaten, und die sich nun schuldig gemacht hat, sich nicht dem Willen der EU und der NATO unterworfen, sondern eine eurasiatische Wendung vorgezogen zu haben, mit Blick auf die aufstrebende russische Macht.

Das Putschistenregime, in dem Parteien mit klar neonazistischer und liberalistischer Prägung vorherrschen, hat von Anfang an die Verfolgung von dissidenten Abgeordneten aufgenommen, versuchte den kommunistischen Generalsekretär Peter Simonenko zu lynchen, während er auf der Parlamentstribüne war, und es berät über die Möglichkeit eines Verbotes der Kommunistischen Partei der Ukraine (13% an den letzten Wahlen). Inzwischen wurde gegen die russischstämmige Minderheit eine Art Apartheid aufgerichtet, womit eine Reaktion Russlands herausgefordert wurde, das die Absicht hat, die Bürger zu schützen, die von den Faschisten an der Macht in Kiew unterdrückt werden.

Die russische Reaktion ist also verständlich: die behauptete Verletzung des «internationalen Rechts» (welches übrigens die USA bei der Erklärung von Kriegen aller Sorten in den letzten Jahrzehnten nie beachtet haben) ist sicherlich im Fall der Krim nicht gegeben, da der 2010 zwischen Kiew und Moskau unterzeichnete Vertrag der russischen Armee den Zugang zur Krim bis 2042 einräumte.

Die Wahl des Volkes der Krim, zu Russland zurückzukehren, wie dies bis in die 50er Jahre der Fall war, ist darüberhinaus als Ergebnis eines demokratischen und partizipativen Prozesses zu begrüssen: die Wichtigkeit dieses Volksreferendums zu negieren, bedeutet die Geringschätzung eines Faktors, welcher graduelle Fortschritte in den sozialen Rechten ermöglichen oder zur Wiederherstellung von internationalen Kräfteverhältnissen beitragen könnte, welche den Imperialismus bremsen. Von unserer Seite bewerten wir in der Tat für positiv, dass die ukrainischen Kommunisten ihre institutionelle Arbeit innerhalb des Parlaments trotz den schwierigen Umständen der Repression solange als möglich aufrecht erhalten, damit der Kampf für die Rückkehr zur Demokratie auch im Westen des Landes weitergeht, denn auf keinen Fall wird das neue Regime in Kiew die sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Probleme lösen können, welche die Werktätigen und populären Schichten der Ukraine bedrängen.

Die Verantwortung für die Möglichkeit eines neuen Krieges liegt vollständig auf Seiten der westlichen Mächte, welche Osteurpa in einer neokolonialistischen Optik attackiert haben, um Russland einzukreisen, weil dieses mit China eine wirtschaftliche und militärische Allianz schafft, die eine Alternative zum Dollar für die Handelsbeziehungen, und Alternative zur NATO in geopolitischen Fragen bildet.

In diesem Sinne wäre der ursprüngliche Vorschlag der Kommunistischen Partei der Ukraine (Abhaltung eines Volksreferendums über die Haltung des Landes auf dem Gebiet der Zusammenarbeit) eine ideale Lösung gewesen, um jeden Konflikt zu vermeiden; ebenso vernünftig scheint der gestrige Vorschlag einer Föderalisierung der Ukraine, was vom Regime in Kiew zurückgewiesen wird. Die Freundschaft und Brüderlichkeit zwischen den Völkern der Ukraine würde damit bekräftigt, da ja nicht nur ihre geschichtlichen Wurzeln dieselben sind, sondern auch die vor ihnen liegende Wegstrecke zur Befreiung und zum Sozialismus gemeinsam zu begehen ist.

Die Theorie der rivalisierenden Imperialismen, wie sie eine gewisse dogmatische extreme Linke zu verbreiten versucht, steht nicht nur im Gegensatz zu dem, was die revolutionären Kräfte in der Ukraine und Russland sagen, sondern vor allem verfehlt diese Theorie die Komplexität der internationalen Politik und widersetzt sich jeder Einbindung in einen ernsthaften geoökonomischen Diskurs, der die Chancen wahrnehmen muss, welche sich für die Emanzipationsbestrebungen der Völker auftun, wenn Russland (und die BRICS ganz allgemein) dem atlantischen Expansionismus einen Bremsklotz in den Weg legen. Wenn man von einem inter-imperialistischen Konflikt sprechen will, so ist es gewiss nicht Russland, das in die Untersuchung genommen werden muss: Die Ukraine-Krise ist mit grosser Wahrscheinlichkeit durch den ausdrücklichen Willen der USA entfesselt worden, die russische Energieversorgung Europas zu blockieren, den alten Kontinent verbindlich auf die Abhängigkeit von nordamerikanischem Erdöl und Gas festzunageln: ein notwendiger Schritt zur Verhinderung der Entwicklung einer Achse Berlin-Moskau-Peking, welche Washington einkreisen könnte.

Obama Urged to Show Restraint on Ukraine – Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

Across Official Washington and the mainstream U.S. media, there is a rush to restart the Cold War with all its black-and-white propaganda, ignoring Russia’s understandable concerns and portraying the “U.S. side” as always right. But some U.S. intelligence veterans urge a more adult response.

MEMORANDUM TO: The President
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)
SUBJECT: Russia, Ukraine, and the U.S. National Interest

We the undersigned are veteran intelligence, military, and law enforcement officers. Taken together, our years of service to our country total nearly 200 years. Unlike many experts and advisers who base their arguments on abstract notions about the international scene, our insights are drawn from a depth of hands-on experience inside the U.S .government — here and abroad.

ODESSA – Lebanese Communist Party, Solidarity to the Communist Party of Ukraine

To the Political Bureau
Of the Communist Party of Ukraine
 
Dear Comrades,

We are very anxious about the situation in your country and we want to let you know that we will be in solidarity with you and the Ukrainian people against the plot organized by the USA and EU imperialism.

We heard about what happened in the city of Odessa where more than forty people were killed by fascists and we regret the hundreds of victims until now. We saw, from the beginning, that the fascist groups, supported by EU and USA, tried to take your country to the civilian war, which conduct to division. and we know the efforts you made and continue to make to preserve the territorial integrity of Ukraine. We know a lot about civilian war, because our country suffered such situation from 1975 until 1990. It is the most difficult situation, which creates only division, death and destruction…

We are sure that nothing, even banishment, can stop you and you will be able to struggle for unity and democracy.

With our comradely greetings

On behalf of the Political Bureau of LCP

Dr. Khaled HADADAH                                Dr. Marie NASSIF-DEBS

INTERNATIONALER AUFRUF. ODESSA: THE LAST WARNING / CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY

* Stop the Nazis and imperialist intervention!
* For a united, independent, socialist Ukraine!

Call for international solidarity

Every May the 9th, after the end of World War II, humanity used to celebrate the defeat of fascism. But after the Black Friday of May the 2nd and the massacre in Odessa, humanity remains shocked to see again Nazi storm troopers burning alive defenseless civilians, arresting and killing all those who tried to escape, singing the national anthem before their corpses.

Let us transform this terrible shock into decisive action!
Any silence is complicity! Even worse, it is a crime. We have to tell loud and clear the truth about the pogrom in Odessa, to defeat the Big Lie already spread by the perpetrators and instigators of the crime, the Nazis of the Right Sector and of Svoboda, their partners in the illegitimate Kiev “government” of pro-Western oligarchs, and above all the imperialist centers in the United States and the European Union assisted by the “mainstream” mass media.
Undoubtedly, when a society in a failed transition like Ukraine implodes and its economy collapses, the situation is complex and full of contradictions, which cannot be dealt with in black and white over-simplifications.

Nevertheless, only those who are guilty could try to present the black as white, the victims as criminals, and the Odessa citizens assassinated, in the most atrocious way, by real Nazis of the Right Sector as “pro-Russian fascists or Russian agents”.
This is exactly what the Western Press and TV propaganda tries to do presenting those burned alive as “pro-Russian separatists and nationalists” and the Right Sector storm troopers of May the 2nd as “pro-Ukrainian activists” (see for example the article in the International Herald Tribune of May 5, 2014).

Now, the same “citizen activists” according to the Minister of Internal Affairs in Kiev, will replace the local police to impose “law and order”, in other words to terrorize the Odessa population subjugating it to the dictatorship of the masters of Kiev. Already, doctors who tried to help the victims of the pogrom were treated by the “pro-Ukrainian activists” as “dirty Jews”.

They were manifesting once more the notorious anti-Semitism of the Banderovites in power, which is particularly vicious against a city like Odessa that used to be a traditional center of Jewish culture honored by the immortal pen of an Isaac Babel. The massacre in Odessa has rightly revived sinister memories of the 1941 pogrom of Jews in Lviv by the Stepan Bandera gangs.
The Odessa pogrom is insolubly tied to the siege of Sloviansk, the executions in Kramatorsk and other cities, the rapid escalation of the military aggression by the Kiev forces using helicopters, tanks, special troops, under the guidance of the US “specialists” in terror warfare against the working class and popular rebellion in Eastern and Southern Ukraine.
Even the Western Press that attempts to depict the rebellion as the action of “small groups of pro-Russian separatists and of disguised Russian soldiers” cannot but admit that this action has the support of the local population. The working class character of the revolt is clearly shown in the strike launched on April 23 by the miners of the Donbass against the owner of the mines the oligarch Akhmetov, the richest man in Ukraine, former supporter of Yanukovitch, and key figure for his removal. The same miners have addressed themselves to the miners of the European Union asking for solidarity, in the spirit of proletarian internationalism. This region is the industrial heartland of the country and the target for the offensive of the foreign capital following the program of social cannibalism tied to the IMF loan.
The working people in Eastern and Southern Ukraine do not defend only their language or national-cultural rights from the ethnic hatred and genocidal plans of the Banderovites in Kiev. The social question is at the center, despite all the noises made by right wing Russian nationalists.
It is well known that not only the Ukrainian oligarchs, but also the Russian oligarchs with invested interests in Eastern Ukraine oppose the rebellion and demand its repression.

The truth is that the population in Eastern Ukraine suffers rather from the inaction of Putin’s Russia than from its action. The popular militias in Donetsk vainly called for arms. They are armed by the old weaponry of the 1980s taken by the local insurgents from the Ukrainian armed forces and police. The Kremlin subordinates everything to its secret diplomacy, bargaining behind the scenes with the US and Germany.

The Geneva agreement of April 17 was, above all, an attempt to politically disarm the rebellion in Donetsk, as we had stressed in our Appeal of April 18. It was a dangerous farce that failed miserably turning into the current tragedy.
We repeat: neither the Kremlin nor the oligarchs but the international working class is the real class ally of the Ukrainian workers.
The Odessa pogrom is the last warning not only for the tragedy that falls upon the entire people of Ukraine, both in the Eastern and the Western part of the country, but furthermore, for a more vast and terrible tragedy involving the entire region, Europe and the world. It is reminiscent of the Kristallnacht, the “Crystal Night” that preceded in Nazi Germany the genocide of the Jewish people of Europe.
The “New Order” that the “activist citizens” of the Right Sector, according to the Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs, would like to impose involves not solely Odessa or the Eastern Ukraine but all Ukraine to be able to implement the draconian measures of the IMF and the EU. Furthermore, it involves all the former Soviet space, the target for re-colonization by the US, NATO, and EU imperialists.
If we allow them to succeed in their plans, then not only Ukraine, or Russia, or Eastern Europe and the Balkans but Europe as a whole, the Middle East and the entire world will suffer a catastrophe. We have to stop them immediately!
Let us start by making this year’s anniversary of the defeat of Fascism on May 9, an International day of mobilization of solidarity, denouncing the massacre perpetrated by the Nazis in Odessa. Let us organize for this purpose the picketing of the Ukrainian embassies and consulates all over the world, leafleting, holding meetings and demonstrations etc.
Let us put at the center of the political activity of all left and popular organizations and social movements, in every international and national forum, the implications of the Ukrainian tragedy tracing its connections with the actual specific situation in each country.
Let us break the complicity of silence, the torpor and inactivity that the official bureaucratized Left maintains, particularly in Western Europe, in relation to Ukraine, when it does not openly support the actions by “their own” imperialism. If we allow the Banderovites in Kiev to do what they like in Odessa, then we will allow tomorrow the same crime to be committed by the “Golden Dawn” in Greece, by Jobbik in Hungary or, even, by Marine Le Pen’s National Front in France.
Let us systematically unmask all the lies of the mass media, propaganda and psy-ops of imperialism. The truth is concrete and revolutionary.
The fake elections of May 25 in Ukraine under a US/EU imposed dictatorial regime waging war against the people of the country have to be denounced and the electoral farce boycotted.
Both Ukrainian nationalism and Great Russian nationalism spread ethnic hatred, disintegration, national slavery and social disaster for the interests of the oligarchs and global capital, for the IMF, the EU, the US, and NATO.
The integrity and independence of Ukraine can be secured only if all oligarchs are expropriated under workers’ control without any compensation to these thieves and the entire economy and society is re-organized on a real, i.e. anti-bureaucratic, socialist basis.
The fake Verkhovna Rada should immediately be dissolved. Workers’ Councils should be formed everywhere and elect delegates to a new, real Verkhovna Rada to organize a national discussion of a new Constitution for a united, independent, socialist Ukraine ruled by the Councils of its workers and people and not by the gangsters at the pay of Washington, Berlin, or Brussels.

* Death to fascism! Freedom and Peace to the people!
* All power to the workers Councils!
