The worst thing Putin has done in Ukraine is to reconcile the authorities with the people. The president has turned from an object of universal criticism into the Ukrainian Charles de Gaulle.1 The general of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry offers to deliver himself to the Russian army in...

Suffering as a national idea: “Trends of order and chaos”, episode 69 (August 28)Submitted by Редакция on 1 September, 2022 - 01:03
Hi everyone! Today is Sunday, August 28 and we continue our podcast “Trends of order and chaos”. This is episode 69. Here are the main topics on past weeks’ agenda.
The war rages for half a year now

Hearing on extension of pre-trial detention of Aleksandra SkochilenkoSubmitted by Редакция on 10 June, 2022 - 12:35
St. Petersburg. Russia. On May 30, the St. Petersburg District Court extended the pre-trial detention of Aleksandra Skochilenko until July 1.

Tekmil: A Tool For Collective ReflectionSubmitted by ahundred on 28 April, 2022 - 19:02
Tekmil is an instrument of collective reflection. The historical root of what we know as tekmil can be traced to authoritarian communist traditions, such as Stalinism. Although, Mao was the first one among these traditions to put so much emphasis and importance to the methods of criticisms and self-criticism. Overall, we can state that critique and self-critique has been valuable for revolutionary movements in general, and has never been alien to non-authoritarian revolutionary movements in general.
In the context of Rojava, tekmil can be translated as "report" - further, one can trace the development and transformation of this meaning depending on the situation. Still, the literal translation makes sense to keep in mind - humbleness and shortness are valued in tekmil. It contains many cultural codes, mechanisms and ideological assumptions, and it requires an understanding and a solid philosophical and ideological foundation.
Festival Feast After Plague (formerly Father Frost against Putin) is postponed to the next JanuarySubmitted by Редакция on 8 April, 2022 - 10:02
Unfortunately, we must once again delay our festival, this time due to war. Our concept was always to be an open meeting of Russian (and not only Russian) activists in Helsinki. But now borders are closed, and it is unclear if any open social activism in Russia will be possible from now on.
But we plan to organise our festival anyway. We still have spaces and organising group. Our preliminary new dates for the festival are 6th-9th of January 2023.

Interview with girl ultras "Spartak Nalchik"Submitted by Редакция on 16 January, 2015 - 20:34
Team Spartak Nalchik has never been a serious financial support like Anji Makhachkala, but his mark in the history of football in the Caucasus it postponed. We hope that the trend created in these years, will continue to evolve in Nalchik. At the very least, any precedent antifascist ultras in the former USSR and, especially, in Russia deserves a detailed review.
- How long you support Spartak?

Solidarity with Egyptian womenSubmitted by Редакция on 14 February, 2013 - 13:26
Anarcha-feminists came today, 12 february 2013 to the embassy of Egypt in Moscow to express solidarity with victims of sexual assault-violence, that happened all through Egypt during revolution, and even after reovolution, when Brothers Muslims are in power.
We don’t have illusions about Egyptian government and we don’t ask it to protect demonstrators, who are actually protesting against system.
The results of the first 30 years of “democracy” in Ukraine are, to put it mildly, unconvincing. The economy and the media are in the hands of rival oligarchs, corruption is at staggering levels, economic development lags behind many African countries, and in addition, the country has become the...
