Ukraine: War as a Manifestation of Confrontation of the Imperialist Powers of the United States and Russia:

In addition to economic
interests, Russian imperialism has its own military and political
interests on the territory of Ukraine. In particular, these interests
most clearly confirm the fact of the Crimea joining Russia. Although
Crimea joined Russia as a result of a nationwide referendum, after its
declaration by an independent state and seemingly in accordance with the
right of the nation to self-determination, it nevertheless happened
under the cover of the Russian armed forces and without the consent of
Ukraine.

The Crimean bridgehead not only significantly strengthened
Russia’s military positions on the Black Sea, but, to the same extent,
weakened the US military and political positions in this region. In
addition, in case of recognition of the victory of the militia, even if
the Donbass enters the Ukraine with the rights of broad autonomy, there
may be preconditions for the appearance of a pro-Russian enclave here,
which, accordingly, will weaken the influence of the US and Western
competitors in a number of other territories of Ukraine.

Consequently, Russian imperialism is not
interested in fomenting any military conflicts on the territory of
Ukraine at the moment and is vitally interested in at least freezing the
military conflict on the territory of the Donbass.

This
conclusion was made by us as a result of an analysis of the interests
of large Russian capital at the moment. It is precisely these class
interests that explain the peacekeeping rhetoric of Russian bourgeois
power towards Ukraine as a whole and its charity towards the oppressed
masses of Donbass: the dispatch of humanitarian convoys, the reception
of refugees in the territory of Russia, the provision of free medical
care to wounded children, and the like.

However, the future destiny of
the oppressed masses of the Donbas is absolutely indifferent to the
Russian authorities – in fact, until now the Russian bourgeois
authorities have not legally recognized the emergence of the Donetsk
People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic; during a number of
successful offensives of the militia, these offensives were stopped
under the pressure of the bourgeois power of Russia, since the armed
oppressed masses of the Donbas inspire fear not only of the Ukrainian
bourgeoisie, but of the entire imperialist reaction, including the
Russian one; the Russian bourgeoisie did not render effective assistance
in organizing its own financial system of the independent republics of
Donbass, did not help in the restoration of factories, mines and the
national economy as a whole, and so on.
