Ukrainian Government Right to Reject the EU

The Ukrainian government is to be supported for rejecting the free trade agreement with the EU. Germany, whose economic and foreign policies dominate the EU, has had a long standing and deep seated policy of driving to the east and opening markets and resources to its northern and eastern borders. It steadfastly returns to this underlying policy at every opportunity and consciously uses the EU to achieve this objective. The smashing up of Yugoslavia sparked by that early German-led EU recognition of the Croatian separatists, was one tragic and bloody example of this position. The fostering of civil strife in Ukraine is another worrying example.

The EU would not develop trade with the Ukraine without its usual insistence on social and economic devastation. It would plunder the oil and gas at a snip and without compunction for the Ukrainian people. The Ukraine was a valued part of the Soviet Union, a proud federation.

While gangsters now rule Russia and the EU it may seem that Ukraine has an unpalatable choice, one almost impossible to make. But of course it is not. Falling for the charms of the EU and the selfishness of the pro finance capital hunger strikers would enslave the nation and impoverish it beyond belief. A quick look at how EU membership served Greece would be enough to convince any Ukrainian that its government has got it right and its protestors have got it badly wrong. A grim legacy of Nazi sympathisers are in the crowds calling for the EU and Germany to rule Ukraine instead of its own government. The EU leadership are again attacking an elected government that disagrees with their project using any means necessary.

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
