Boris Kagarlitsky: Eastern Ukraine people’s republics between militias and oligarchs
Democracy and Class Struggle publishes this analysis of the situation in the Eastern Ukraine from Boris Kargarlitsky for information.
We are trying to verify what he says but if it is true what he says about Akhmetov
"The Russian press is already reporting openly on an agreement reached between the Moscow bureaucrats and the Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov ".
This is extremely concerning.
PS: We can now verify the worrying fact that Akhmetov is back on the scene from our sources.
August 16, 2014 – -- The war between the Ukraine government and the republics of Novorossiya [New Russia] is gradually taking on the character of a positional stand-off. The resources of both sides are exhausted, and fighting reserves are at an end. For the people’s republics, defending themselves against the many times larger military forces of the Kiev regime, the well-known principle of “a government needs to win, but for an insurrection it is enough not to lose” operates with full force.
