HAVANA TIMES – Hi friends, this week we dedicated our drawings to the Ukrainian people and to those who ask for peace in the world after the aggression by Russia. The feared Russian military invasion of the neighboring country finally began on February 24, fulfilling warnings coming from the West.

After weeks of high pressure, in which the largest military exercises of the Russian army since the Cold War were carried out near the border, the full-scale invasion began and has so far not stopped intensifying.

The volume of propaganda and misinformation to misrepresent the magnitude of this war behind euphemisms such as “special military operation” is striking.

At this moment, the Ukrainian people and their government are resisting despite the disparity of forces. Our solidarity is with them. We hope that a peaceful solution will soon be found through dialogue between the parties and that the present conflict will not escalate to other regions.

I just had a Déjà vu.

  • Some elements in the U.S. assuredly did wish Putin to invade Ukraine. There is a small contingent of self-denominated “leftists” who also have appropriated to themselves exclusively the honorable title of “anti-imperialists” and who assume that any dictator who, for reasons of his own, opposes the US or NATO at any time and in any way, regardless of cost, must be a hero of the people. Then there is the much larger contingent of the decadent far right, who regard Putin as the epitome of manly strength and wish to follow his, to them, invincible example of irresistible brute force.

    The reports of Putin’s defeat are greatly exaggerated in the bourgeois press, and one can place no credence in them. In fact, the seizure of Mariupol is nearly complete, and the reduction of Kyiv, Kharkov, and other strategic targets through siege warfare may now be possible. It seems possible that the war will go on for weeks or months now, rather than a matter of days.

    In fact, the US bourgeois-democratic political system is very near collapsing–in my opinion another Republican victory–not that Democrats are “good guys”– will finish it off, with a far less organized political result than those who predict “fascism” may understand.

    There is reason to believe that this would not be a near-term good thing for the world, but it may be inevitable. The exact manner of the collapse, if it happens, is impossible to foresee. One can only hope that the US will avoid becoming directly involved in the Ukraine conflict, as, in my opinion, nothing good will come of it except possibly the temporary preservation of the US political system–which seems unlikely if such a desperate measure is called for in any event. Wars abroad in the US are popular only with the nep-Nazi right and others who do not have to fight in them.

    Please note: I happen to be using a Yandex email account, but am not in any way affiliated with the Russian government. I picked this account because it works well, is free, and has no established connection apart from this with me personally. I have been using this account for several years. and no doubt should change it. But I am old (73) and no longer of much use to anyone, and have wanted to avoid the bother of switching. If only I could communicate in Spanish! Estoy listo a trabajar, but have not yet taken steps to learn this vital language. Too old, alas.

  • Samir is kookoo for cocoa puffs if he believes that the US wanted Putin to invade Ukraine. The result in higher gas prices alone (more than $6.00/gallon here in San Francisco) should convince doubters that the US did not want this stupid war.

  • That is what the Elites wanted ?

    They wanted Putin to invade Ukraine,and STAY IN UKRAINE – and then move on to Moldova..Finland ……

    Europeans had been lulled into, a utopia and complacency after WW2.

    It is shock therapy,and also the ultimate population eradication program !

    WW1 and WW2 went on, for many years !

    WW3 will be OVER, in a few months – and Billions will die – what COVID could not achieve !

    WW is a better option than Bio war – as,how a virus mutates and evolves, in humans and animals – is something,THAT EVEN THE CREATOR of the VIRUS,CANNOT BE SURE OF !


    Coz – because he wants Putin,to move in deeper into UKR,and then,be stuck in a quagmire !

    That is when the Guerilla attacks will start – IEDs, Booby traps,Drone attacks …

    That is when Biden will talk – when he THINKS,THAT HE HAS THE UPPER HAND !

    But there is no upper hand ! As Putin wants the quagmire ! He wants to send UKR to the stone age !

    The threat to Russia is DEMOCRACY – as that makes the target nation,drift to NATO and US – and also,CREATES PRESSURES,WITHIN RUSSIA !


    Unless Russian Oil and Gas is sanctioned – sanctions ate meaningless !

    All Russian Bank sanctions will fail as the payment gateway will be PBOC and its banks like CCB.Between China and Russia – settlement will be in Yuan/Roubles

    So PO is from Moscow and LC is opened from a CHINESE BANK – but need not be in China – AS IT BE FROM ITS BRANCH IN LONDON !

    US and EU cannot SANCTION Chinese banks !

    Same option for marine and hull insurance and reinsurance !

    By allowing Oil and Gas exports,NATO and EU is allowing Putin to stock up USD – before SWIFT – when Putin might take out Oil and Gas to EU !

    Which is what US wants – as it wants the NATO nations,to pay more,for the NATO umbrella ! dindooohindoo
