Episode 64: Ukraine Fights for National Self-Determination Against Russian Imperialism
Anne Jaclard of Marxist-Humanist Initiative joins the co-hosts to discuss the organization’s March 7 editorial, “Ukraine Fights for National Self-Determination Against Russian Imperialism.” Topics include: (1) the right of national self-determination; (2) Putin’s repudiation of this right to justify his imperialist invasion of Ukraine; (3) slaughter of Ukrainian civilians and displacement of millions; (4) opposition to the invasion within Ukraine, within Russia, and around the world; (5) “left” apologetics––blaming the US and NATO, support for a multi-polar capitalist order, and the effort to impose forced neutrality on Ukraine; (6) the nuclear threat; and (7) the relationship between Putinism and Trumpism. A previous RFH episode on national self-determination is referred to during the discussion.
