Colonel Cassad: Ukraine's South Front Catastrophe

Currently, we are witnessing epic and even historic events. Government army and punitive battalions are suffering a catastrophic defeat to the south of Donetsk.

Even a short time ago the republics were in dire straits: the DPR was actually hanging by a thin supply thread - which the government attempted to cut near Shahtersk and Krasnyi Luch; the summit of Saur-Mogila was abandoned, and Bolotov’s counteroffensive didn’t bring decisive successes.

Many thought that the self-defense militia forces were on the ropes and about to break, which would lead to the collapse of Novorossiya and military victory for the fascist junta. However, the militia managed to withstand the most severe blows, the ones junta dealt with all forces available to it, over the first half of August.

The junta made no secret of their goals, and openly spoke about preparing the assaults on Shahtersk and Lugansk. The number of triumphant reports with each new new breakthrough of mechanized battlegroups was off the chart

The great Bela Kun.  He was a Hungarian revolutionary who led the Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919. Following the fall of the Hungarian revolution, Kun emigrated to the Soviet Union, where he worked as a functionary in the Communist International bureaucracy.

During the Great Terror of the late 1930s, Kun was arrested, interrogated, tried, and executed in quick succession. He was posthumouslyrehabilitated in 1956, following the death of Joseph Stalin and the critical reassessment of Stalinism.

Houston, Texas: March and rally in solidarity with the Ferguson uprising, August 20, 2014.

"Whose streets? Our streets! Took over the streets in Third Ward, marching in solidarity with Ferguson, from the HPD cop shop on West Grey and St. Emanuel and through the hood. We out-smarted the cops who were trying to block the streets and keep us on the sidewalks. HPD, out of our community!”

Overview of the Situation in the Donbass Region   

We are currently witnessing an epic and in its own way historic event. The Ukrainian regular army and the punitive battalions are suffering a catastrophic defeat to the south of Donetsk. Only a short time ago the Republics were in dire straits: the DPR was hanging only by a thin supply thread, which the Ukrainian army was attempting to sever near Shakhtersk and Krasnyi Luch; the summit of Saur-Mogila has been abandoned, and Bolotov’s counteroffensive had failed to bring decisive victories.

Ukraine: Big business continues to profit from the war

By Sergei Kirichuk, Union Borotba (Struggle)

As expected, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine agreed to the Cabinet’s proposal to introduce a temporary (until January 1, 2015) nationwide 1.5% collection on payroll — the so-called “war tax.” This is another step in the direction of the robbery of the people, who have to pay for the so-called “Anti-Terrorist Operation.” At the same time, the media reported that companies associated with the oligarchs got lucrative new military contacts.
