RUSSIA v UKRAINE + CONFLICT Socialist Labour Party

Updated: Jun 25


We are witnessing a propaganda campaign coordinated by the UNITED  STATES  of AMERICA , NATO, the EUROPEAN UNION , the UNITED KINGDOM and WESTERN POWERS unlike any propaganda campaign since the FASCIST campaign by Germany prior to and including the Second World War.

On all TV News Channels and in virtually all Newspapers both in the UK, EU countries we have and are being subjected to non stop 24 hours a day a case seeking to convince people that Russia started this conflict when evidence clearly started this conflict by implementing a policy of deploying troops on nearly every country surrounding Russia, despite a promise in 1990 that NATO would not expand eastward yet between 1990 and 2021 NATO expanding from 17 countries to 30 countries. The agreement not to expand NATO was given by James A Baker USA Secretary of State to the then Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev, a promise repeated by the NATO Secretary General in a speech in Brussels on 17 May 1990.

As a result of that agreement the Soviet Union disbanded the Warsaw Pact in March 1991 and the Soviet Union became the Russian Federation  

The reason given by NATO and the Western Powers for their involvement in the dispute is because Russia ( in response to the build up on Ukraine border) invaded Ukraine with the intention of supporting the two Independent areas of Donestsk and Luhansk established by a votes by their citizens in 2014

Since the two Republic's were established in 2014 they have been subjected to non stop attacks by Ukraine  using Rockets, Shells and Drones, yet no Western countries have done any thing despite an agreement that there should by a negotiated settlement, yet these negotiations over 8 years have seen Ukraine buiding up its Army including USA, UK and other countries military to "train Ukrainian Army how to use the arms which have been pouring in to Ukraine and it is now clear mercenaries to become part of Ukraine's army, air force and naval forces 

It appears that the propaganda has been swallowed hook, line and sinker, Britain's " left wing" political leaders are weeping at the Russian Invasion and occupation yet not a whisper against the neo fascist Israel's invasion of Palestine and it's occupation of Palestinian and Syrian lands or their almost daily bombing, shelling and murder of innocent people in their homes, and their places of worship. On the contrary the USA and other western countries apply sanctions against the victims of occupation and support the perpetrators 

The hypocrisy by the West and by many on the "left" is beyond believe. What about the America's occupation of part of Cuba used as a he'll hole know as Guantanamo Bay which continues to hold human beings without charge

Why does the International Court bring USA and it's leaders who invaded Iraq on the basis that it had weapons of mass destruction ( a lie which cost the lives of over a million people)

The same USA invading Libya because it wanted regime change, it's invasion not only resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands but left the Country and its people in war torn civil turmoil and then.

The USA and UK invasion of Afganistan and after 20 years of causing over three quarters of a million deaths many of whom were young soldiers from The USA and Britain with many more badly disabled had to leave Defeated and in disarray 

We in Britain now living in the worst economic position since the 1920's and 1930's are pouring millions in a conflict in which we should have no involvement; yet because millions are made making and then selling arms for killing instead of using all the £250 billion on arms we should be using those billions on our National Heath Service. It's time to stop this madness and start to use the billions currently spent on death and destruction in wars use that money on our people in need, particularly on health, education, care for the elderly and on mental illness
