As a socialist and internationalist, I abhor war. But the basic premise of self-determination justifies the resistance of ordinary Ukrainians to Vladimir Putin’s brutal invasion of our country.

I mean, you’d have to be evil to support the invasion, regardless of being a socialist or not.

This was evident after the beginning of the invasion in his frequent appeals to the Russians, his invitation to the Kremlin to negotiate, and his statements that the Ukrainian army would not try to retake the territories that were under Russian control before February 24 but would seek their return through diplomatic means in the future. If Zelensky were replaced by someone more nationalistic, the situation would become much worse.

Is it really considered nationalist to want Crimea back after a sham election? If so, call me a nationalist. The people who live in Crimea deserve a proper vote.

Rules TBD.
