I'm also not Russian but I think I can speak for the leftypol masses when I say that we love our beautiful Russians and want to give them big, brotherly socialist fraternal kisses. Isn't that right, folks?

The problem the entrenched interests of the russian bourgeoisie. And the Russian security apparatuses are bit too cucked by them defacto (Union state with Belarus is geopolitically completely rational after all; That it hasn't happened to this day suggests the cuckholdery is pretty intractable)

For some reason the language and cultural barrier really seem to restrict most westoid lefties from accessing FSU views.<br/><br/>You would think that the profligate youtube channels and availability of auto translate would prompt more cross pollination, but it seems like at best Grover Furr or Arch J.

There’s really no ethnic tension between most of the nationalities in Russia, with chechens and nowadays gostarbeiters from Central Asia the exception.

There's clearly a division between armenians, chechens, georgians and russians, but no such toxicity between russians and tatars, bashkirs, etc. There's memes about Shoigu, but pretty much everyone considers him russian.

This channel is great. The few translations he does are absolute bangers of "educational" content as far as you can do it in video format. Wish he would translate more vids like vidrel. Is this just my imagination as a non-russian or are your content creators much more anti-popscience than the western counterparts. Especially the western history-youtubers reiterate wikipedia articles while this channel seems to really go somewhat in depth.

Anywa, my assessment about both of them is that they are bourg economists than primarily use mainstream bourg economy concepts to talk about USSR and planned economy. They have some marxian tidbits here and there, but i wouldn't call them marxian economists like i would Cockshott or Cottrell. We have good youtube channels about marxist philosophy, about history and anthropology, but not about marxian economics.

<a onclick="highlightReply('337023', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#337023">&gt;&gt;337023</a><br/><br/>Honestly I think this assessment is either ignorant or malicious.<br/><br/>The first reason being thst anyone who has degree in economics is going to have learned neoclassical synthesis. Its unavoidable in our present times.<br/><br/>The second reason is that where a marxist economics is taught in any formalized mathematical way, it is almost always an equilibrium borkiewiczian or sraffian derived version that does not and/or cannot reproduce many of marx's conclusions (like the trpf and resulting regular recessions)<br/><br/>But ultimate issue is that the question correct or at minimum useful in any way. There is very empirical work on gosplan and how it actually functionned, and ergo I think Safronov's are at least useful (though likely at least incomplrte consideting the paucity of research).

Listening to a liberal talking about gosplan, you might as well read Conquest about USSR history. Read Strumilin ffs, plenty of actual materials from the times of USSR about the subject.


<a onclick="highlightReply('342602', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#342602">&gt;&gt;342602</a><br/><br/>Again seems malicious or ignorant.<br/><br/>Even the analogy is questionable. Conquest was a cold warrior that relied on testimony and had no archival backup. If Safronov really is just a revisionist liberal economist (say like Robert C. Allen) then an appropriate analogy would be Arch J. Getty or Stephen Wheatcroft. Even so, neither of those authors approve of the USSR.<br/><br/>That said, despite the empty vitriol, thank you nonetheless for mentioning Strumilin. If anyone else has some useful work on Gosplan (especislly with some kind of englush translation availabke do post links).

Its the mayerial basis for why it is possible to have pmc or "intellectual petit bourgeoisie".


Russians: As far as bourgeois politicians go, how decent is Putin? On one hand he appears to be much better than Yeltsin, but there are also various epidemics in crime and such that go unchecked by him. Is he below, above average, or right about in the middle?

I guess i would need to elaborate on that. Syomin does not have deep understanding on marxism, there are people who do it better on youtube. On the other hand, what he does doesn't require it. He focuses on spreading basic ideas of communism and marxist views to the masses of people and he does it pretty well (i think he is largest communist channel on russian youtube with 536k subs). He is also a daily news channel, again from communist perspective. He know history and politics on a pretty decent level and basics of ML theory and praxis to do a pretty good job.<br/><br/>Channels like Думай сам думай сейчас on the other hand focuses on explanation of maxist theories and when channels like that have pretty shallow understanding of that theory they can be blamed for it.


<a onclick="highlightReply('347948', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#347948">&gt;&gt;347948</a><br/>I dunno how to answer that tbh. I hate him, of course, but then again, politicians from other countries don't seem to be much better and the difference comes mostly from different material conditions of those countries.<br/><br/>I guess from the porkies point of view he is pretty good since he managed to stay on power for 20 years.

He got persuaded by Komolov, if we are to judge by Syomin's latest videos.

Most of it just seemed to be a long set of quotes of Lenin until last quarter or third of the video.<br/><br/>I am not sure how this proves he is hardline non-marxist. I think it does show that he might have misunderstood Lenin here (confusing the immediate tasks of the construction of socialism with socialism itself; Socialism as a word is pretty broadly defined in Marx, hence which the historical record of splits on what constituted "authentic socialism")<br/><br/>Honestly there must something else going on that you haven't revealed in these replies for why your hateboner for this guy is so large. Its one thing not to be into someone, but that wouldn't merit so many replies and such vitriol.

My interest here is not even really with Safronov anymore, since my original post was basically about jow liked some of the presentations on aspr and that some of this would be interrsting for the guy to discuss with Paul Cockshott. <br/><br/>Again, there is clearly something I missing. The evidence you showed of this guy being some hardened anti-communist or non-communist isn't very strong.<br/><br/>Of course a person can make genuine mistakes of course, or they could also be grifters. Perhaps the later is also the case for Safronov, but I haven't seen it yet. It could also be genuine disagreement (As an example, I think there unequal exchange occuring that in part explains the diverhence in working class incones between countries, whereas Paul Cockshott is against this view)<br/><br/>I think perhaps what is happening Safronov did or said something that was similar to (as you brought up) what Yakovlev or someone like that has you very angry with him. You haven't so far shown what that is here.<br/><br/>I am someone who can very angry quickly myself over certain things, and I am trying to understand the link here. Perhaps a more concrete example: Zizek can often spout ridiculous western narrative bullshit anout the ussr, but in the majority of videos he pits out its not the subject matter. So maybe there is some other video that is much more damning, or else it could also be a guilt by association issue as well.

Hi rusanons,<br/><br/>So I came across one of those soviet expat liberal self described "non-ideologues" on quora by accident due to search engine results.<br/><br/>In so doing it has strengthened my conviction that during the revolution and forever after death penalty must also apply to the closest loved ones of the degenerate in question.<br/><br/>All of these people and their families must be systematically eliminated and then systemically/metaphysically eliminated (so that it becomes impossible for them to come into existence ever again).<br/><br/>A structural surplus of organ replacements for at least a decade or two.

What's the power dynamic like between Putin and the oligarchs? He probably has the most power of any one person in Russia, but what if he wipes out all the oligarchs and installs people loyal to him, rather than sharing power with the current ones? Putin has political power unlike the oligarchs so it seems he has more power than them.

<a onclick="highlightReply('404723', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#404723">&gt;&gt;404723</a><br/>This is unhelpful. Putin has the highest political office in Russia, and has a very large amount of wealth himself. There is no way he is just a "faithful dog" to them.


Hmm, I just understood that it is probably these "USSR strong" threads in .ru were likely made by KPRF. <br/>KPRF is not communist at all, I agitate against it. They do not organize and do not educated workers as I know., they are not a workers party. They show themself as USSR party, but this is not true, but as I know they are more like USSR party traitors.<br/><br/> <a onclick="highlightReply('380749', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#380749">&gt;&gt;380749</a><br/><span class="quote">&gt;genetic .. same</span><br/>This is irrelevant, I do not know why mention this&hellip;<br/><br/>But ukrainians have white hair when young and frequently blue eyes.

<a onclick="highlightReply('404966', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#404966">&gt;&gt;404966</a><br/>Putin clearly has more power within his state than any Western politician does in theirs, both political and economic (his personal wealth is estimated to be near $200 billion for instance, SUPER far from people like Biden or even Trump). You probably just can't analyze the situation and assume Russia is like any other country and has its exact same dynamics.


<a onclick="highlightReply('405026', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405026">&gt;&gt;405026</a><br/>I live in Russia, you numnuts. I remember 90s when Putin was nobody but a fuckboi for Sobyanin. They put him in power because he was a good executive, and he is still in power because he still is useful to them. All you need to do is watch how Putin even talks with oligarchs in hte meetings, it's quite clear who is in power there. You know nothing about Russia and you just blindly believes that Putin is like some sort fo tsar because all info you get is from western lib newspapers.


<a onclick="highlightReply('405147', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405147">&gt;&gt;405147</a> (me)<br/>*not Sobyanin, Sobchak. Had a brain fart for a moment.


<a onclick="highlightReply('405147', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405147">&gt;&gt;405147</a><br/>If he is in power, why doesn't he purge the ones who threaten him and then install his own guys? He is one of the most powerful people in the world.


<a onclick="highlightReply('405183', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405183">&gt;&gt;405183</a><br/>Because his power comes from those oligarchs. He is a manager basically. Why do i even need to explain such things on a fucking communist board?


<a onclick="highlightReply('405209', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405209">&gt;&gt;405209</a><br/>What prevents Putin from having these guys assassinated/arrested? Will law enforcement not obey Putin unless he has permission from the oligarchs?


<a onclick="highlightReply('405147', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405147">&gt;&gt;405147</a><br/>What's the deal with Grudinin being banned from running in elections? Isn't he a KPRF member, too? Accusing him of holding foreign assets while russian oligarchs and Putin's daughter live abroad seems like a really bad excuse for getting rid of him.


<a onclick="highlightReply('405242', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405242">&gt;&gt;405242</a><br/>It is the usual circus before elections. Has more or less same reasons behind it as burger "controversies" on election year. Occasionally they need to change clowns so that people keep believing same shit. Zyuganov is a bit old and doesn't really work as opposition material anymore, so they promoted Grudinin to play as opposition. <br/><br/>The scheme is simple - you have the main guy/party, you have some sort of opposition guy and you have some clown that everybody hate so that at least a couple of people would go to election booth to vote for anybody but him. Sometimes they even pretend they repress the opposition guy so that people believe he is "for realz". Most likely he would still be allowed to participate in elections after a bit of a show.<br/><br/>Same shit happened with Navalny several years ago when runnig for mayor of Moscow or something. He was put into police custody but released a couple of days before the elections so he could participate (even though by law he couldn't do it because he was criminally charged)

Putin is still a confused conservative, but he atleast isn't on the "yay-freedom" train as yeltsin was on and he realises that the west is out to finish off russia


<a onclick="highlightReply('405349', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#405349">&gt;&gt;405349</a><br/>I remember asking this and got the response that the oligarchs have already consolidated themselves into a class by the late 90s, and after having finished buying up former public property in Russia, got Putin in power to close off the gates, so to say, and preserve the current lineup of oligarchs. Basically to get Putin as a gatekeeper and keep their status safe.

Not so much as "president of Russia" as he is "CEO of the Russian Natural Gas Company." He answers to the "board of directors" who are consortium of boojies. I wonder if they're like a "national bourgeoisie" who have an interest in energy production and whose interests Putin favors more than pure speculators like Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

It is just a point often brought up by russian rightoids, so i thought you were the one too.<br/><br/>Wheat was classified in 5 grades in USSR, from 1 being the highest to 5 being lowest. Imported grain was of 4th and 5th grade. Since USSR had limited amount of actual arable land, the decision was made to grew high quality grain for internal consumption and just import forage grain. Socialist system is efficient but it doesn't change the climate and geography of the land and majority of USSR lands were either non arable lands or risk agriculture lands.<br/><br/>Just a bit fo a comparison. The highest grade flour sold for people in USSR was a mix of wheat of 1st and 2nd grade. In modern Russia the highest grade flour is the flour made from 50% 3rd grade and 50% 4th grade. Considerng that grain of 4th grade was used to feed livestock, you can make your own conclusion about the place fo people in capitalism system.

<strong>Perestroika did not cause USSR’s downfall but ‘a lot of things’ should have been done differently, says ex-Soviet leader Gorbachev</strong><br/><br/><a href="https://www.rt.com/russia/531136-ussr-collapse-perestroika-gorbachev/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.rt.com/russia/531136-ussr-collapse-perestroika-gorbachev/</a><br/><br/>The collapse of the Soviet Union was not caused by the controversial policy of perestroika but should actually be blamed on the attempted coup in August 1991 and a conspiracy between the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus.<br/><br/>That’s according to former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, who wrote an article for ‘Russia in Global Affairs’ explaining his point of view that perestroika was “historically correct” and necessary for the USSR.<br/><br/>Gorbachev led the Soviet Union from 1985 until its collapse in 1991 and is seen as one of the most important figures of 20th-century history. However, while he enjoys a positive reputation outside of the country, he is viewed differently inside Russia. Many people blame him for the post-Soviet economic crisis that led to a dramatic decline in living standards, as well as a diminution of Moscow’s status on the world stage.<br/><br/>Perestroika, seen by some as a significant contributing factor in the dissolution of the USSR, was an attempt to restructure the economic system and end stagnation. As part of the policy, Gorbachev introduced market-like reforms into the socialist system, which lead to food shortages and political tensions.<br/><br/>However, according to Gorbachev, those who believe perestroika wasn’t necessary have a very short memory.<br/><br/>“They have either forgotten or don’t want to remember what the moral and psychological situation in Soviet society was like by 1985,” he explained. “People were clamoring for change. Everyone – both leaders and ordinary citizens – felt that something was wrong with the country. The country was sinking deeper into stagnation. Economic growth had virtually stopped.”<br/><br/>“Perestroika was aimed at people. Its goal was to liberate a person, to make him the master of his own destiny, of his country,” he said.<br/><br/>However, despite his conviction that the policy was correct, he did note that he would have done “a lot of things differently.”<br/><br/>In Gorbachev’s opinion, the real reason for the fall of the Soviet Union was insubordination within the ranks of the Communist Party.<br/><br/>“Two blows proved fatal for perestroika,” he explained. “The attempted coup d’etat organized by reactionary forces, including those from my entourage, in August 1991, and the December collusion of the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus, which ended the centuries-old history of our state.”<br/><br/>In particular, he pointed the finger at Boris Yeltsin, who was the leader of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, and who promised that a union of some sort would survive.

<a onclick="highlightReply('434765', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#434765">&gt;&gt;434765</a><br/>I'm interested too in an elaboration, what do you mean by decommodifying ethnicity and erotics and what does the DPRK have to do with this?


<a onclick="highlightReply('434828', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#434828">&gt;&gt;434828</a><br/><br/>Decommodification of erotics means abolishing the selling of any erotic services, including prostitution, pornography, eroticized adverts, etc.<br/><br/>Decommodification of identity means preventing identity markers (food, clothes, films, etc.) from being conpetiticely sold for profit. It is more difficult to accomplish, but banning advertising goes a long way toward this, as well as debranding any items tgat have ethnic content. <br/><br/>De-idententitarianizing erotics means that erotic relationships between are not promoted/taught as identities a person has that either innate or constructed. Instead they are merely activities one engages in. Eg. No one identifues themselves at present a snonstampcollectorist. Eg. No one at present identifues themselvrs as a cancunite when it comes to favorite holiday travel destination.<br/><br/>See video for info how the DPRK handles these issues.


<a onclick="highlightReply('435355', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#435355">&gt;&gt;435355</a><br/>I understand everything except the de-identitarianizing erotics explanation. I don't think I understood correctly, but do you mean for example the concepts of a top and a bottom/dom and sub? Or something else. That's just as example btw, something that I imagine qualifies as identities of eroticism, but again I don't think I understood correctly.


<a onclick="highlightReply('435355', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#435355">&gt;&gt;435355</a><br/>The last two make no sense tbh

No idea what top and bottom mean, but I presume its the same?<br/><br/>If so indeed the idea applies. Assuming that the associated behaviour take place at all under socialism, there would not exist such terminology and associated subculture to construct an identity on the basis of.<br/><br/>That is why I mentionned nonstampcollectorists and cancunites. At present there does not exist an identity for people who do not collect stamps nor one for people who like to vacation in Cancun. <br/><br/>Under socialism ideally the same would be true for erotic behaviour: Eg. If a woman happens to engage in erotic behaviour with another woman, this will not imply any underlying identity as lesbian.<br/><br/>The ultimate goal is to reduce as much as possible the potential social antagonism/competition that could arise on such a basis, and more importantly to have people as much as possible think of each other more in terms of conrades than a plethora of identities. Especially when it comes to eros, those are very intimate matters and so belong in the personal domain.<br/><br/>The radlib and the radcon so fixated on such personal issues are two sides of the same bobo coin.

The video you posted is good to understand more specifically what you mean but for example how do you achieve this? I understand that in the case of the DPRK a big influence is probably simply cultural aspects of North Korean society, such as the lack of prominent displays of afection that don't go beyond a hug or holding hands. But how could this be implemented in other countries, particularly western countries?

A non-exhaustive list:<br/><br/>A first step would be s switch to an intranet and a strong state monopoly on foreign trade (both of which have to be done anyways for economic and security reasons) along with boosting the armed forces in order to enforce such. This facilitates the practical enforcement of the ban on commodification.<br/><br/>Then the education reform, sex education would take a highly biological basis, emphasizing the difference between sex (which is reproductive) and erotics (which is passion or lust based). In moral education, love will be taught as a virtue without much focus on specific gendered coupling.<br/><br/>Religious institutions encouraging violence will be heavily fined or shut down. Parades in will generally be banned outside of those that are say patriotic in nature.<br/><br/>Etc.<br/><br/>These (among others) should help reduce idpol tensions with time, hopefully rapidly.


<a onclick="highlightReply('437561', event);" href="/leftypol/res/326202.html#437561">&gt;&gt;437561</a><br/>Very interesting suggestions, would probably work well in a country not too plagued by idpol as you mention.

bumping this thread


This probably doesn't deserve it's own thread but I'm surprised no one here is talking about this, but what do you guys think about the upcoming Russian ammo ban by the US due to their new sanctions? Any of the American anons here own an AK and such? How much harder do you think it'll be to get ammo after this? Apparently this will still hurt gun owners across the board due to rising prices because of the sanctions


>upcoming Russian ammo ban
I haven't heard of this

does Russia even make good ammo nowadays?


The Communist Party is the second largest party in the country, although it is revisionist. What would happen if the UR party just lost the elections at some point and the communists got in power? Would there be some 1993-type scenario where the military bombards parliament? Though these modern communists are not so hardline as their predecessors, it will still orient the country towards more left-wing thinking, having actual commies in power again, so would Porky attack?

TulAmmo is a major Russian brand in the U.S. and they make ammo for more than just AKs. Apparently, if it does take affect, it won't be for several years? But I imagine it will worsen a lot of supply problems. It'd probably be to the benefit of Serbian ammo manufacturers though.

What are some pro communist authors I should be reading? Specifically those who discuss the soviet union?
I've read some of Grover Furr but I can't really take him seriously


You really should take him seriously, despite minor nitpicks, not a single person has succintly debunked any of his works and his book Blood Lies directly debunks Timothy Snyders anti-communist shitshow Bloodlands (which also involved Anne Applebaum and her Victims of Communism site)
I would also recommend Douglas Tottle's Fraud, Famine and Fascism (pdf 1) which debunks the Holodomor.
I'd recc some Russian authors, 'cause they really have top tier nuance but they don't have any English translations.
I do much suggest reading Patrick Sloans "Democracy in the Soviet Union" (1937) (pdf 2) I've talked with his son and read the book and it's a fairly nuanced view of the USSR.
Anne Louise Strong is a good writer on the USSR as Walter Duranty, despite attempts at slandering his name, has very fair conclusions about it in his reportages.




Всегда рад.


Apparently, CPRF is siding with LIBERALS like Navalny against UR. That's such a fucking dumb shitshow. CPRF (and socdems everywhere else) will start winning more due to China's influence, but they will use those votes for saving capitalism, as always. Thus CPRF straight up promises not to undo/reassess privatizations, not to undo CPSU trial that happened in 1993, which outlawed CPSU as well as made Russian state officially acknowledge shit like Katyn and Stalin's repressions, trial as a whole presenting CPSU as an occupying force repressing USSR/Russia, and shit like that. CPRF is absolutely cucked, everything that will murder capitalism in Russia they oppose vehemently.


Righting the historical wrongs will advance the cuase of communism. Swiping away all the bullshit against USSR will make cucks to capitalism literally wordless, their positions will be descredited the the point saying them out loud will put them in jail - for defending nazis and spouting nazi propaganda-based slanders.

CPK bases their predications of FOM polls, which rate them higher as they are state-owned. Still, russia uses parallel voting for FPTP and List seats, so it is possible for UR to win a majority on like 20% of the votes if they get enough local seats.
It is telling that regional polls show Siberia swinging away heavily from UR tho.

Any updates in the past year on Donbas? Is Russia beating the nazis? I haven't checked this story in a couple years tbh


It's at a stalemate, no recent heavy fighting outside border conflicts. Donbass and Lugansk are still independent. Russia still hasn't made a solid move there. Donbass returned the name Stalinsk to the city of Donetsk, though the international community isn't accepting it (fuck em). Ukraine is plunging into further poverty and selling out into a NATO base and seemed to be ramping up military activity but then sort of stalled. NATO has been busy agitating for a war against Russia over the new Gasline to Germany.


If NATO starts more war it must go in that region. Then Russia can move in stronger

Ни пуха ни пера, товарищ переводчик


In Russia, students study latin alphabet in some way, shape or form. Usually, in algebra/mathematics classes, lol. "Latin in russian" has 1-to-1 correspondence with russian letter, so A is А, B is Б, C is Ц, and so on, plus double letters like SH is Ш, CH is Ч, SHCH (or SCH, or whatever) из Щ, and so on. However, "russian latin" doesn't like C because it looks weird, so Ц is TS. Y (called "eegrek" in math for some reason) represents Й in letters Я, Ё, Е, Ю, but not Ь (soft sign, written only after consonants and representing them being soft. Consonants, except for Ч and Щ, are hard by default). So, YA is Я, YO is Ё, YE is Е, YU is Ю. Words which end in ЫЙ is on case-to-case basis, apparently. You can get either, but personally I notice it translated as YI more often than IY. IY is more consistent with other Y usage in "russian latin", but you get what you get. Ъ is hard sign, it's basically used in places where there's a pause, so, your "obyem" should be "ob'yom". Historically, hard sign was used after all the consonants, but language reform changed that and left it only with the pause function.

Overall, you did great.

Isn't the point to get a bird or mammal when hunting? "Break a leg" if anything would mean you would get those animals.

Separate question: what is the material basis for the division in Ukraine, with one side for staying and another for separating towards Russia? Is this just a cultural thing?


It’s an idiom type common around the world where you say you hope a bad thing happens so that a good thing happens.

It’s more about integration into the european or the russian economic sphere, but cultural and linguistic demographics are important. Hohols in the west are more likely to speak hohol, and those in the east—russian.

>the material basis for the division in Ukraine, with one side for staying and another for separating towards Russia? Is this just a cultural thing?
west Ukraine is closer to Poland, East Ukraine is basically Russia that got added by Stalin and Lenin. East Ukraine is also more industrial and so more proletarian, meanwhile the west is Agrarian in economy, combined with a lot of urbanization, leading to rather liberalized and TV-brainwashed people that grewup on 100 atrocities of Stalin and forgotten Ukrainian heroes and 90s rubbish like that.


Stalin and Beria were both killed by the Partocrats because Stalin realising the failure of the vulgar collectivisation strategy was about to implement Neo-NEP policies of 'reform and opening up' (Similar to what Deng Xiaoping would eventually successfully implement in China) in order to grow the soviet economy and build productive forces, this was once again attempted under Yuri Andropov at a later date.

Deng and from his current Xi are Stalin's true successors for this reason. they successfully created the economy Stalin talks about wanting to create in 'Economic problems of the USSR'


>Beria and talin got killed by Partocrats
>Deng and Xi are Stalin's successors
Damn you got the whole division laughing dude


If Stalin was killed he wasn’t killed because the evil tankies were scared he was going to become a Dengoid wtf lmao? Some of his last acts was clamping down on the black MARKET and further egalitarianising pays.

If anything it was because he was going to change the constitution so that elections could happen (see: Cuban model) (which did actually go ahead in 37 though only in Ad-Hoc way) which would have broken up the corruption in the administration.

Balaev keeps murdering historians


In short, Khrushev claims that the plan was to fight the enemy on enemy's territory immediately after attack, but instead Stalin retreated to Moscow. So, Stalin bad. And all the historians support Khrushev's claim, because of anticommunism. 20th congress Khruschev's speech is quoted, such as "in press and media there's a prevalent opinion that Stalin used active defence while retreating, that Stalin predicted everything and outplayed everyone", and so on. Meanwhile:

> А теперь кое-что из резолюции по пятилетнему плану развития народного хозяйства СССР, принятого на последнем предвоенном съезде партии:

>«Обеспечить должный контроль за выполнением решений ЦК ВКП(б) и СНК СССР о запрещении строительства новых предприятий в Москве и Ленинграде, а также распространить это постановление на Киев, Харьков, Ростов-на-Дону, Горький, Свердловск, в которых впредь запретить строительство новых предприятий.

Last pre-war 5 year plan literally forbade building any new factories in Moscow, Leningrad, Ukraine, Russia's south.

>б) В таких экономических очагах страны, как восточные районы, Урал и Поволжье, в третьей пятилетке создать предприятия-дублеры по ряду отраслей машиностроения, нефтепереработки и химии, чтобы устранить случайности в снабжении некоторыми промышленными продуктами с предприятий-уникумов.

Build doubles for certain industries, to prevent "randomness in supplies of certain industrial goods". Pretty obvious assumption that supplies will be cut, eh?

Fucking hell. Khruschev's revisionism is very, very insidious. Literally every part of WW2 is rewritten to keep in line with the de-stalinization's black legend.

>Its going to take a least one or two five year plan to rebuild the electronics, engineering and machine building sectors.
True, but Russia has done it before and can do it again.


Hey bros, found a crashcourse article into a debunk of the most common economic myths about Stalin and Khruschev http://proriv.ru/articles.shtml/ogienko?vs_safronov It's a debunking of Safronov's "expertise" in economics, but it goes over everything.

I had no clue that according to khruschevite economists, self-costs of producing grain increased from 22 roubles in 1933 to 63 roubles in 1953. Holy shit, apparently, implementing tractors and fertilizers, reducing the amount of manual labor, number of workers, increases costs of production of grain!


How could there be costs if the economy is planned? Workers don't compete for wages.



Reading the article.

I have a question related to a term that has appeared several times and often in negative connotation, but I am not sure what it means: "Cost Accounting"

An ordinary english meaning for these terms would just be taking the various costs to produce a given product (raw materials, depreciation of equipment, wages, etc.) and adding them up (potential dividing by output to get a cost per unit).

Obviously this in and of itself is just a very basic administrative procedure, so in Russian the term must mean something else so that it is often claim antagonistic to planning.

Can anyone help clarify?



Khozraschyot? That's what khruschevites' economic policies were called. While by itself it's a normal thing - we want factories to optimize their production, so that they don't rely on other factories to cover for them, obviously, you need to understand when such an approach is applicable - for khruschevites it was a way to increase factories' autonomy and hide their anticommunist policies under communist-sounding slogans. Article argues that USSR shouldn't have moved away from subsidizing unprofitable base industries with the profits from end consumer industries, while reality (mainly, China) shows that development of consumer products requires making those base factories solvent via their own means.

Again, it all heavily depends on the situation, and again, khruschevites gutted those policies of all the intended meaning and replaced them with capitalist road. It's a proof that you can't create or support socialism by economic means alone, you can't evade class struggle with economic tricks.

Now I am certain that USSR has lost less troops than Finland in Winter War. Just look at this desperate shit. "You've lost 250k troops, thousands of planes and tanks! We could have bombed Leningrad at will, but we are not Soviets who bomb civilians! Your hospitals are fool of wounded, and you are experiencing famine! Please surrender!"


Finns had it coming anyways


This is just rather typical war propaganda. The Soviets were definitely unprepared for the war and certainly wanted a peaceful resolution, especially demonstrated by them willing to cede more and more land as negotiations dragged on. They also underestimated the Finns, who also had home advantage, but by no means were there less Soviet losses.



Oh so under the cover of making sure factory units break even the Khruschev policy increased managerial discretion in all kinds of debilitating ways.

I figured it must have veen something like that; It wouldn't make sense that mere accounting was a big political issue.

Aside, I think when it comes to subsidies it would be good for a socialist country to always aim to make them explicitly part of the state budget for ease of tracking. No borrowing loans with negative real interest rates, no hidden cross subsidies between industries, no retained significant profit for discretionary use. That way all subsidies can be more easily openly debated.


Or we can look facts in the eye and see that just like with the French hiding behind Maginot, Finns got owned hard, to the point that they had to rewrite history to look like winners, including inventing 10 times more dead Soviets than Finns. http://heninen.net/sopimus/molotov1940_e.htm


Like seriously, who do you trust more - communists, or bourgeois state's propaganda, upheld as sacred truth by other bourgeois states, and who use those "facts" of horrendous Soviets losses as ammo against communism?


>increases costs of production of grain!
I have some doubts on that but it is logical, since in 1933 the Kolkhozes only began and so in 1953 pay, pricing and other things changed compared to the 30s (in part due to the recent war and need to rapidly militarize in to defend against NATO).

>by no means were there less Soviet losses.
The 250K and shit is not confirmed by Soviet sources and the numbers in the English Wikipedia are a rough estimation that lumps combat deaths and other deaths/casualties rather then real losses.


>pricing and other things changed compared to the 30s (in part due to the recent war and need to rapidly militarize in to defend against NATO).

How the hell would costs of production of grain increase threefold while implementing automation? Even if we assume that recent war and NATO stand-off created policies to rip-off kolkhozniks with pricing, how in the world would that increase costs of production? Khruschevites most likely counted kolkhozniks' increase in wages and living standards as an increase in costs of production of grain, that's the only non-retarded explanation I can think of. And if so, just think about it: khruschevites/revisionists/antistalinists considered an increase in peasants' living standards detrimental to the economy, because of kolkhozniks taking out of the "pool" more goods, thus increasing costs of grain production. Just think about it. Makes sense for them to want to nationalize away kolkhozes' property and make them compliant, eh? It's the kind of thing capitalists would talk about behind the closed doors, to extract maximum profits from the workers. Contrast that with Malenkov's proposed policy to increase state's buying prices for meat and such to promote meat production - by khruschevites' logic that would have increased cost of production of meat through the roof.


Except communists. Even Stalin's "fascists losts 4 million troops in 1941" is true, as fascists did indeed lose like 2/3 of their divisions' personnel, amounting roughly to 4 million losses. Yet we only hear german propaganda side of the story, and finnish propaganda side of the story, with Soviets literally being Tolkien orcs. Amazing that even communists buy into this fantasy nonsense.

>increase threefold
How the fuck does gas cost 3 dollars today but was 50 cents back in 1999? You have to take into account price values changing you numbskull, not to mention the wages of the average peasant in 1933 r a lot lower than those in 1953. They also had to rebuild agricultural industry all over again due to having Ukraine and Belorus getting so fucked over during the war.
>hruschevites most likely counted kolkhozniks' increase in wages and living standards as an increase in costs of production

>Everyone lies in war you fucking brainlet

USSR had no inflation, it had deflation under Stalin, actually, with prices dropping throughout 1930-1953 period. Every year on April 1 they had a planned decrease in prices, with new and old prices printed in all the newspapers.

That's retarded. If you have too much money chasing too few goods you get shortages. Constantly lowering prices places an immense strain on state capacity, builds anger ("I can afford it but it's never in stock!!), and is detrimental to socialism as a whole. Cockshott called it cheap food populism and he's right that this crap shouldn't be done in the next AES state.


so if the KPRF decides to engage in a confrontation with United Russia over the votes, what's the most it can do? what are its options? Zugyanov has the option of cucking out, what is his other option? do they have soft power? could they make life difficult for Putin with civil resistance? could they wage an insurgency?


>shortage is when you have too much money

<t.big broin

>Constantly lowering prices places an immense strain on state capacity

Funny how China is consciously implementing the policies of cheap-ening goods via automation and science, especially in heavy industry, and it works wonders while not causing overproduction, "strain on state capacity" or anything bad, really. I can't fucking wait for the end of the current Five Year Plan to see the cheap Chinese chips, and subsequently PCs, smartphones, EVs and all that jazz, to absolutely flood the market with no survivors

>and is detrimental to socialism as a whole

Yes, I fucking hate it when instead of increasing in price as times go on, goods decrease in price. It makes me super angry.


>shortage is when you have too much money

I mean, just think about it. All goods in the economy are supposed to be consumed. Shortage is when there's no NEEDED goods, not when you have too much money. When you have too much money, you already have everything and bought everything, and you are saving money at this point - or investing it. That's why under Stalin there were bonds for the Soviet citizens to buy to support the state's industrial policies with.

Decrease in prices is the fucking reason why China outcompetes the West. It was similar to what was happening under Stalin, with finns and swedes inventing gulag slave labor allegations to fight Soviet lumber exports - which were cheap and of sufficient quality, destroying competition.


Being slow =/= dead


>shortage is CAUSED by people having too much money
Yes, and this is so easy to demonstrate I'm impressed you're trying to argue against it. Why?

Let's say minimum wage rises to $100 USD/hour in a western country but the government also price controls stuff like meat and bread to stay at the same price. What does this mean? It means that everyone can now afford 9x more meat/eggs/food/etc. than they ""used"" to be able to, assuming they spent it all on meat.

HOWEVER, food production (as well as production of any other good you want to price control) has not been correspondingly increased to match this sudden surge in demand. Not to mention that most price controls suck because they are pinned at prices below break-even points, meaning there is inefficiency and the state is losing money that could be spent on more important things because they're subsidizing it so heavily.

Hence shortages. Hence why Soviet Union suffered with shortages. Hence why people like Khrushchev were doing dumb shit like the Virgin Islands campaign to increase agricultural productivity, since too many people had too much money to spend and stuff was out of stock not always but on a consistent enough basis to generate low level frustration.

>Yes, I fucking hate it when instead of increasing in price as times go on, goods decrease in price. It makes me super angry.

<Being this economically illiterate
Deflation is bad for economies overall. You hold the same position as a lunatic libertarian Bitcoin booster.

If holding money becomes more valuable over time that means that the incentive to invest in future production drops to zero since you can earn more money by doing nothing as the prices of things are constantly decreasing relative to the (constantly increasing) value of your money. Deflation is what was killing national economies and causing spikes of unemployment with the Gold Standard forcing deflation on everyone, until people like Keynes came around. This is why some sections of the Bourgeoisie (the libertarains) want to go back to the Gold Standard, because it means that they can go back to putting everything in their savings account and gaining millions every year without even doing anything (since you can, contrary to popular opinion, lose money on stock investments).

>Decrease in prices is the fucking reason why China outcompetes the West.

Decrease in prices is only RELATIVE TO THE HIGHER COSTS OF EVERYTHING IN THE WESTERN COUNTRIES. Holy shit. If you were born in China and raised and grew up there you would see visible inflation (not much, around 2% inflation annually like a developed Western country, but it's there) because your incomes would be based in Yuan and not USD you utter incompetent. Ya, we get """cheap goods""" that are a steal, but over there it's not like they're all buying lambos since everything is """so cheap"". How the fuck do you not even understand currency value differentials?


>HOWEVER, food production (as well as production of any other good you want to price control) has not been correspondingly increased to match this sudden surge in demand.

You just assumed that it didn't increase. Why? Planned economy plans ahead, lol. Why is your assumption is that planners are dumb, and that price controls and production aren't maintained at a level needed for the well-being of the people?

>meaning there is inefficiency and the state is losing money that could be spent on more important things because they're subsidizing it so heavily.

Now then, look at the whole of economy. So, bread costs below break-even point, ok. What does it do to the economy? It frees up workers' money to buy stuff other than bread.

>Hence why people like Khrushchev were doing dumb shit like the Virgin Islands campaign to increase agricultural productivity

Khurschev resulted in meat shortages, lol. Stalin set up an efficient agricultural system that had more meat produced than during Khruschev's Virgin Lands campaign and after. Under Stalin, there was no wide unrest at government policies, people didn't blockade railroads to demand "to turn Khruschev into meat".

>Deflation is bad for economies overall.

<Being this retarded

>If holding money becomes more valuable over time that means that the incentive to invest in future production drops to zero since you can earn more money by doing nothing as the prices of things are constantly decreasing relative to the (constantly increasing) value of your money.

Yes. And? That means you put your money in a bank, and bank uses that money to invest. For example. Workers LOVE seeing goods becoming cheaper, as that signifies FUCKING PROGRESS, and also it corresponds heavily with the rising level of life of workers - because they can buy more stuff with the same amount of money! With workers spending most of their money every month, anyway, because they are FUCKING WORKERS, not capitalists who have money to spare.

>>Decrease in prices is the fucking reason why China outcompetes the West.


No, you retard, China is specifically PLANNING TO decrease costs of goods - SOEs are tasked with that, most notably steel industries, and for example the costs of new cargo ships have decreased in China by 20% over the past 5-10 years. Which, by the way, made China the biggest ship producer in the world, with their ships being cheaper than South Korea's and Japan's ones. Consumer goods are a different story, but generally speaking costs are decreasing. Say, look at how much TV cost in 1950s, and how much it costs today (relative to average wage). China does the same process INTENTIONALLY, and that murders competition.


>You just assumed that it didn't increase.
Because agricultural productivity increasing is not based off the sole will of the planners but also reliant on complex geographical/natural limits/supply chain/trading/etc. factors that cannot be resolved simply by printing out a piece of paper that's been officially stamped and documented that orders a producer along the lines of:
<"ok increase production by 700% in next few months thanks :DDD".
If you're 4 feet tall and I tell you to reach 6 feet tall naturally in the next two months is there anything you can humanly do to accomplish that goal despite me """planning""" it for you, you tard?

>So, bread costs below break-even point, ok. What does it do to the economy? It frees up workers' money to buy stuff other than bread.

You STILL don't understand. The temptation for socialist governments is to subsidize the price of goods under price controls (generally food) way below the break even point meaning that their funds aka their total financial capacity and what the limits of what they can do is being wasted on keeping certain goods permanently stuck at a certain price level when they could be spending that money instead on, say, cancer research, or building a new housing complex, or building a new road.
OPPORTUNITY COST is important. Hence unreasonable price controls result in an unnecessary financial burden that diverts resources away from other important sectors since the state no longer can finance other important projects.

>Yes. And? That means you put your money in a bank, and bank uses that money to invest. For example. Workers LOVE seeing goods becoming cheaper, as that signifies FUCKING PROGRESS, and also it corresponds heavily with the rising level of life of workers - because they can buy more stuff with the same amount of money! With workers spending most of their money every month, anyway, because they are FUCKING WORKERS, not capitalists who have money to spare.

No, no one smart invests in deflationary environments because sitting around and doing nothing with the money is incentivized!
Here is a rough sketch of a deflation example:

>1 unit of deflationary money will be worth 2 (in real terms) by the next - so an increase of 100% in buying power

>If I start an enterprise and pay someone 5 units of money, by next year I will have lost 10 units of money through opportunity cost (5 x 2) because if I sat on it instead of paying it out to someone else I would have had 10 units worth of currency in real terms.
>This means I would need to have a product or service that people would buy to give me at minimum 10 units worth before next year just to be able to reach break-even before even profit occurs - and the likelihood of that? Nil, because customers know they will be able to buy that same product for much cheaper next year! Why not wait a couple years for the currency to get even stronger before buying?
>In addition, the money that I would be paid for whatever good I sell would be worth less (because at that point in time the increase in value hadn't kicked in yet) meaning that further investment into the enterprise would again be a net loss disincentivizing me from continuing.
<End result: Mass unemployment, mass enterprise bankruptcy, and a destroyed or stagnant economy

Now compare to inflation of 2%:
>1 unit of inflationary money will be worth 0.98 by the next
>If I start an enterprise and pay someone 5 units of inflationary money, it will be worth 4.9 by the next
>Since value of """dormant"""/non invested money is negative, I am incentivized to constantly grow and expand operations to make more, because leaving it in my savings or whatever is not going to give me any personal benefits
>My customer base is also incentivized to spend money into the economy, since they know that there will be price rises next year thanks to inflation
>Other analysts will see greater potential and invest in their enterprises, creating a positive cycle of expansion
<End result: Boom times, lots of enterprises founded, fuller employment, and a growing economy.

This is why deflation is retarded and KILLS, absolutely KILLS economies.

Holy shit I can't even fathom that I had to explain that. Hey genius, if cheap goods from China were such a quality of life improvement for the Western workers, why the fuck are so many of them committing suicide and languishing in poverty/unemployment/crime/etc? It's because those goods were produced through the destruction of their native industries meaning that they have suffered a net loss in their living standards through increased unemployment and decayed prospects! "Goods becoming cheaper = progress" has to be the most batshit insane neoliberal take I've ever seen on this board so far. It's not true on an economic level, it's not true on a worker level, it's not true even in terms of the environment because environmental damage not being factored in is a reason why so many goods are so cheap in today's free trade environment. Take the Scandinavian welfare states that succdems look up to - goods and services are EXPENSIVE there because wages are HIGHER and workers are more SECURE (although that is quickly changing after neolib """"reforms""").

>China is specifically PLANNING TO decrease costs of goods - SOEs are tasked with that, most notably steel industries, and for example the costs of new cargo ships have decreased in China by 20% over the past 5-10 years. Which, by the way, made China the biggest ship producer in the world, with their ships being cheaper than South Korea's and Japan's ones. Consumer goods are a different story, but generally speaking costs are decreasing. Say, look at how much TV cost in 1950s, and how much it costs today (relative to average wage). China does the same process INTENTIONALLY, and that murders competition.

Yes of COURSE companies want to out-compete their rivals and push cheaper products. This is a natural function of capitalism. But the Chinese are not aiming for a DEFLATIONARY ECONOMY hence why inflation still exists in China and China's Central Bank still prints money. You can buy less food on the same salary in China today than you could 10 years ago because China's central planners are wise and know that inflation is necessary to grow the economy and that wasteful perma-stuck price controls aren't the way forward. They learnt from the Soviet experience.

>muh cheaper TVs

Fuck you're falling for all the neoliberal memes today I guess. If your wage has remained stagnant for the last 20-30 years as so many workers in the West have; how the FUCK is that a net benefit? You think a boomer who raised their entire family on a single salary trade union job, paid off mortgage, has two cars and money to go on vacation and everything, had a harder time than some fucking zoomer living paycheque to paycheque in a cramped 200ft sq ft apartment eating frozen dinners? That boomer had, what, maybe 6-15% average annual inflation and was still living a better life. The neoliberals enforced budget discipline and inflation targeting to LOWER INFLATION and they did it by destroying unions, workers rights, outsourcing, privatization, etc.

Read a fucking book! You know NOTHING and arguing completely out of your ass!



Bystander here.
But that is only true with price controls, right? Meaning that a good minimum wage or a UBI price controls are unnecessary? Why subsidize bread when you can simply give that money to the citizen and have them choose on what to spend it.



I think the two above posters are srguing past each other:



*cont: The main reason why priced could be decreased under Stalin, particularly in the post war, was because of vast increases in productivity that occured in many industries. ​

However by the seventies productivity growth slowed and the USSR implicit subsidies for consumer goods of various kinds rose leading to occasional particular shortages and arbitrary consumption inequalities. This then explodes with perestroika because of the coops buying state goods and reselling them as well as the abolition of the state monopoly on foreign trade.


No, it is dead. Better to recruit people here:


>Because agricultural productivity increasing is not based off the sole will of the planners

You dumdum just assumed that productivity didn't increase. Your imaginary example is just that, an imaginary example that has no relation to reality.

>The temptation for socialist governments is to subsidize the price of goods under price controls (generally food) way below the break even point meaning that their funds aka their total financial capacity and what the limits of what they can do is being wasted on keeping certain goods permanently stuck at a certain price level

Prices and subsidies just reallocate labor, lol. It's more akin to giving a priority to things than spending resources. You spend resources on producing goods, not on buying them when they are already produced. What the fuck are you even going on about? If bread is cheap via subsidies, it's cheap due to basically making other goods costlier. It doesn't decrease overall amount of goods produced DIRECTLY, in can decrease it via making labor more scarce in some industry, because all the laborers went to other job, but OVERALL? Man, you have the most down-to-earth consumerist understanding of economics.

>No, no one smart invests in deflationary environments because sitting around and doing nothing with the money is incentivized!

And yet stalinist USSR, which had deflationary environment, grew fastest in the world for 3 decades. With people investing in bonds, issued by the government, to help the government build more factories, with people saving money in banks, because government told them to and guaranteed that it's safe and good, and so on. You are fucking wrong, HISTORY showed that.

>and the likelihood of that? Nil, because customers know they will be able to buy that same product for much cheaper next year!

Oh yes, people have to buy food, clothes, TVs, cars, homes, education, healthcare, only IF THERE'S INFLATION BREATHING DOWN THEIR NECKS. What the fuck is wrong with you?

>In addition, the money that I would be paid for whatever good I sell would be worth less (because at that point in time the increase in value hadn't kicked in yet) meaning that further investment into the enterprise would again be a net loss disincentivizing me from continuing.

Dude, your money will be able to buy 2 times more of the same TV. You are not CAPITALIST, you are WORKER! You don't fucking buy up companies and invest free money, you live off your WAGE, which you get at the end of the month and which you spend, if we look at the entire economy, on the goods you produced yourself! Stop being a retarded cuck to bourgeois economics.

>It's because those goods were produced through the destruction of their native industries meaning that they have suffered a net loss in their living standards through increased unemployment and decayed prospects!

Who the fuck cares about americans who got outcompeted? We were talking about internal circulation of goods here.

>because environmental damage not being factored in is a reason why so many goods are so cheap in today's free trade environment

Are you seriously implying that we live in a zero sum economy? What the fuck, lol

>You can buy less food on the same salary in China today than you could 10 years ago

No, you can buy more food on the same salary (except their salaries also rose). That's the fucking thing for China, they are lifting out of poverty, they are lifting into the middle income, and soon into high income bracket.

>wasteful perma-stuck price controls aren't the way forward

And yet they are "stucking" steel, coal, electricity prices all the damn time. Fuck, do you even know anything about China, lol?

>Yes of COURSE companies want to out-compete their rivals and push cheaper products.

And that is a net zero sum because of environmental damage, according to you.

>Fuck you're falling for all the neoliberal memes today I guess.

Dude, who's socialist, and who's capitalist, China or USA? In a socialist country, working class controls the state, thus the state works for the people, they produce goods that people need, they do what people want, and that is realized in particular in the form of prices falling while wages are rising. Your "muh neoliberalism therefore you are wrong" is fucking dumb even without me not being a neoliberal.

>That boomer had, what, maybe 6-15% average annual inflation and was still living a better life.

You are an idealist retard who doesn't understand that for different stages of development different things work. Say, Lenin encouraged super-inflation in early USSR to erode the wealth of the rich and to seize their property, and workers were unaffected because they spent their money almost immediately anyway, and peasants paid in grain and were separated from the cities.

>The main reason why priced could be decreased under Stalin, particularly in the post war, was because of vast increases in productivity that occured in many industries. ​

Thank you that you understand my argument. That guy, however, will scream "muh neoliberalism" at the idea of goods becoming cheaper, and separately, the idea that all goods will become cheaper, hence the deflation, will stop investments into the industries because of muh no profits. I don't fucking care about present-day americans, we are talking about Stalin and China here. It's a different fucking economy.


Since capitalists, and to a lesser degree, landlords, are the ruling class, all those extra money given will end up in landlords' pockets. Subsidizing bread will result in the same thing, really. Apart from controlling prices and rents with the aim of destroying capitalist (and landlords) class there's no way to increase living standards with fiscal/hand-out policies alone. Subsidizing expanded production of bread will create, paradoxically enough, more bread, and cheaper at that, though. While that other poster argued that subsidies mean "lol let the state buy that for you", in reality it's more often along the lines of the state directly expanding production, thus distorting the free market, thus it's haram even to think about that. But really, it's because capitalists hate competition, and don't like the state doing things. That's why communists love to subsidize stuff, because it kills capitalist's profits and outcompetes him off the market.




>Впрочем, не просто. Им еще зима помешала. Думаете, только немцам она мешала? Нет, финнам тоже. Сначала мешала тем, что было мало снега: «Однако у противника было техническое преимущество, предоставленное ему погодой. Земля замерзла, а снегу почти не было. Озера и реки замерзли, и вскоре лед стал выдерживать любую технику. В особенности Карельский перешеек превратился для больших масс войск и механизированных частей в пригодную местность. Дороги окрепли, легко было прокладывать и новые. К сожалению, снежный покров продолжал оставаться слишком тонким, чтобы затруднять маневрирование противнику. (К.Г.Маннергейм).

>А потом тем, что было очень холодно: «Вскоре начались исключительно жестокие морозы, поставив как нападающую, так и обороняющуюся стороны перед самыми тяжелыми испытаниями. Нам пришлось пережить такую холодную зиму, что более низкая средняя температура была отмечена всего два раза за последние 112 лет. Поскольку все строения на потерянной приграничной полосе были сожжены, вопрос размещения для русских войск стал трудной проблемой, а холод стал причиной обморожений и снижения боеспособности».

Mannerheim said that finns lost the Winter War because: first, there was too little snow; second, it was the coldest winter in 112 years! 112 years! Fucking fuck, literally the same thing that loser nazis use to cope with. And from Mannerheim himself, no less! The history of WW2 was written by FUCKNG LOSERS.


This is an imitation of Byzantium in the Russian Empire.



And more. Finns reported that they fought off 2500 Soviet planes, destroying half of them. Also, they destroyed 2500 Soviet tanks out of 5000 deployed against Finland. With what weaponry, you ask? Well, with sniper and automatic fire and Molotov cocktails, obviously!

What a clown country this Finland is. They do believe their own bullshit, don't they? And rest of the West.

Bad habits carried over from Soviet times. Say what you will, but bureaucracy came from the people, and shared a lot more with the workers than with capitalists they'd become later. Also, alcoholism was endemic for Russia's rulers, czars were drinking themselves mad as well >>486178 This or previous video on that channel exposed Nikky 2 as alcoholic, to the huge butthurt of czarist/whites fans


>alcoholism was endemic for Russia's rulers,
Did any of them walk into a sauna with a bottle of vodka trying to kill themselves? Maybe I'm stupid but there's a difference between drunk and suicidal drunk



could it just have been an extreme form of addiction?


>Anti-Communism VK
There are some memes making fun of them by revmemsov


they have an English language Twitter account but it is barely used


It's not really from Soviet times, but more from the post-ВоВ generation because during the war drinking off the trauma and drinking before battle became so necessary that the generation then and immediately after tended to over use alcohol. By the 80s this is no longer a major problem despite Gorbachev's bullshit.

i'm not Russian but have friends who are and I'm very interested in their Communist movement. Do any Rusanons have any recommendations for Russian books/articles/academic papers that debunk common talking points about the USSR? stuff along the lines of Farm to Factory by Robert Allen? Because from what little I've gathered through they have a much more nuanced perspective of it than in the west so I'd like to translate what I can over to english.


>Do any Rusanons have any recommendations for Russian books/articles/academic papers that debunk common talking points about the USSR?
Muhin's book on Katyn debunks the "Muh NKVD narrative" and explains the material and socio-political reasons for the action leading up to it and following.

Not really, they just hit a couple of people who gout out of line. KPRF is a porky pocket opposition.


KPRF has gained decently in the last elections. What is your proof they are fake opposition, and not just kissing up to Putin in the meantime?


Are you retarded? They have been created as one from the start. CPSU was forbidden to run in elections after restoration of capitalism, but communist were still very popular, so CPRF with Zuganov was created for that purpose. He was working with prokies from Black October where he used his influence as "communist" to pacify the resistance to presidential elections of '96 where he basically allowed Yeltsin to cheat and basically lost on purpose to this day. They don't even do anything except some activity before elections to get electorate going. They are nothing but a party that is abuses USSR nostalgia for people who miss it but too stupid to realize why it was better. They are not communist they don't even know what marxism is as a majority. You have better chances of finding marxist on /pol/ than in CPRF. I know, i have been a memeber for several years in my younger days.


>they just hit a couple of people who gout out of line
OK but if people like Rashkin are getting arrested it suggests a wider trend.
I've heard the younger, rank and file members are more radical.


It is less of a trend about CPRF and more about tightening the screws in our country. We are steadily going into full fascist mode.

I met plenty of CPRF members and at best they are very weak succdems, focused on actions in parlament, not even organizing unions or something else that would actually be useful. Like, there are members who genuinly want to help people or something, but that is true for any political party.

Memorial Foundation - people spreading Holodomor and 1937-38 Gret Purge bullshit - is getting destroyed in Russia


File: 1636833666448.gif (1.26 MB, 320x240, based.gif)


When is Felix's statue returning to the KGB square and Yeltsin Center is going to get converted in the Victims of Privatization Museum (with shocking and bruttaly realistic educational tours of the mass unemployement, suicide, child prostitution, human trafficking, wars and crime of the 90's)?


Something like Nautilius Pompilius is a good start


Chill out. Nobody was talking about Russia being communist. Apparently, Memorial fucks refuse to follow the new official line in Russia and continue to try and force retarded anti-communist memes, while Russia does not want to pay reparations as a legal heir of USSR to all the fuckers, as well as surrender geopolitical benefits such as security council membership - because, you know, if communists killed gazillion people, how can you let Russia keep it's UN security council position? They were the ones who started WW2 alongside Hitler, how can they have security council seat?


Why is it that nobody is talking about Russian courts denying official archival documents about repressions as evidence?


Guy brought up a historian with him to court trying to make a head of FSB to retract his words about repressions being "grassroot errors" (meaning local authorities made errors in judgement), and the court officially pwned the guy, by NOT accepting the famous "NKVD order 00447" (which mentions Stalin approving higher limits of shootings, lol) as evidence. Meaning, you guessed it, the document is a fucking fake.

Same shit with other "evidence" Memorial Foundation was digging up for the past decades. Courts just don't accept them as such! All the latest "research" and findings in archives come from Ukraine from people like Boguslavsky, who were fucking destroyed by the most light of researches into those documents and it's claims! Outright fakery, so obvious it hurts.

See here, courts are an official institution following the official line. Them consistently refusing archival evidence, from holy archives, means an official policy, no?


loomis sux


Doesn't the Russian government also put up memorials to "victims of Stalinist repression" though, and I've seen statues of people like Kolchak built in Russia.


Yes. But also they are banning Memorial now, even though Memorial had government funding it at some point in the past. Times are changing, you see? Maybe they'll even declare "eltzinist regime" an occupational government which perverted real history and expose the fakery of archival "evidence" - like secret protocol of Molotov-Ribbentrop, or Katyn, or 1937-38's 700k people killed, or shit like that.


>Doesn't the Russian government also put up memorials to "victims of Stalinist repression" though, and I've seen statues of people like Kolchak built in Russia.
In his old age, Putin became paranoid. The system eats itself.

Don't be so naive.


Memorial refuses to back down and continues pumping out the most blatant anticommunist fakes there are. It's been going on for a decade, with Memorial associates getting repressed bit by bit. If this continues, Russia WILL proclaim Memorial a creator of forgeries in one way or another, because they'll have to justify getting rid of Memorial. While Memorial already tries the narrative of "Russian state hides real number of victims of stalinist regime", Russian state will have to proclaim something to the opposite of that. How could they repress Memorial if they were speaking the truth? That's not how bourgeois law works, they first discredit the one they want to destroy, and then outlaw them.


I was talking unironically. Communists in the East should be as anoying as the liberals in the "End of History" of the 90's, put up a musuem for every single broken nail under capitalism.


Liberals malding

>they want to close us up because we try to sue them because they refuse to show us names of troika members

Это просто кайф




Watching zizek talk he claims that Soviet war prisoners were killed. That being not the Nazis but those captured by them. Is it true anons? I'm not talking at Stalingrad but after war.


Don't understand the question. You mean, the claim that Stalin killed returned Soviet POWs? It's fake. Soviets were letting even the polizei divisions made out of Soviet POWs to walk free, because Nazis were forcing them to commit crimes in order to instill loyalty - kind of like criminals making everyone from their gang do something criminal in order to discourage snitching and betrayals. So, why the hell would Stalin shoot Soviet POWs? Sure, they were all checked and watched, to make sure there's no actual traitors and murderers hiding and pretending to be good guys, but otherwise - it's an anti-communist fake.

Russian comrades, I just want you to know that I think that your cuisine is severely underrated.

Okroshka? 10/10
Russian salads? 10/10
Solyanka? 10/10
Pirozhki, pelmeni? 10/10
Freaking caviar, vodka, kvass, borscht, etc.? 10/10

Hey guys, check this out. Nazi sympatisers were adding non-existant paragraphs to official archival documents!

But there's irony to this.


17th of November. Is it winter in Russia? Yet the order claims that "last month has shown that hitlerites can't fight in winter".

Order also claims that germans were stopped already in 17th of November. You know, despite them advancing 4 km per day.

So, order "orders" to create 20-30 men large "hunter groups" to raid behind enemy lines and burn villages. Isayev, who was apparently the first one to bring up this archival document, tried to prove the existance of that order by showing us reports of 8-10 men large groups not coming back from the raids.

Also, archives claim that Panfilov's division destroyed 50 villages - at the time when they were fighting in defensive battles against germans. I'm goddamn certain that the 50 villages burnt were proven deeds of nazis, until those documents were found in sacred archives to prove otherwise.

Oh, and military journals (shown in the article) of armies of Western Front don't mention that order getting fulfilled ever. They mention partisans in group of 300 people raiding a factory germans used as housing and killing 500 of them while suffering only 8 losses, however.


I went to the little Russian expat market here recently and bought a big bottle of kvas. That stuff is pretty good. Little weird at first but I acquired the taste by the second glass.


You can easily make one yourself. You should try and experiment, i personally like mine with some horseradish or honey.


Any good textbooks or something similar for learning russian?


Thank, glad it's tasty for you.

Any /leftypol/-approved books about Chernobyl? Not sure if this is the right place to ask (yes I know Chernobyl isn't even in Russia) but I don't want to make a new thread.
The New Penguin Russian Course by Nicholas J. Brown is the gold standard textbook for beginners. However it should be used in conjunction with other resources, like Moscow State University's free, self-guided online Russian course (IIRC). Haven't used it, but worth a try.

Russia Launches 560 Strikes Against ISIS Positions in Central Syria during November


somebody explain this


It is not different from the original version, except that meme ideologies are real in Russia
>Zhirinovsky and LDPR
nationalist politician famous for his controversial statements and fights in Duma. Zhirinovsky is in the politics of Russia since like 1990/91.
Many youtubers were orbitting LDPR (Yuri Khovansky, for example)
>Maksim Martsinkevich aka Tesak
the most famous russian neo nazi. he is got famous through his youtube videos, especially his "Occupy Pedofilyai" project, which were just pedo hunt videos. They were baiting pedos to meet them by making fake accounts of 14yos on dating sites and then humiliate them on camera. Tesak was also involved in murders of immigrants and was arrested many times (he claimed that it must have been because of muh pedo lobby). In prison he abandoned NS and became a libertarian. He was never released and died in prison a year ago. There are suspicions that he was tortured and even murdered. Is still revered by online zoomers.
>some trans influencer
idk who that is
>the fight of Maksim Shevchenko and Nikolai Svanidze
both Shevchenko and Svanidze are journalists. They got into fight during a debate on stalinism on Radio Moscow. Shevchenko is a communist, has his own party RPSS - Russian party of freedom and justice. Svanidze is famous for his liberal anti-communist and anti stalinist views, had his own program on Russian state TV called "Istoricheskie khroniki", is also known for his debates with communists.
>Svetov and Vatoadmin
Mikhail Svetov is an ancap youtuber, who is also famous for dating a 15 years old. Vatoadmin is right wing conservative streamer and economist. (debated Konstanin Syomin or Boris Kagarlitsky)
>German Sterligov
literal ultra orthodox reactionary and primitivist. staunch opponent of abortions, LGBT, alcohol and technologies. basically russian version of Varg, lol

>monarcho-stalinism/orthodox christian stalinism/red-brownism

this is just a sad heritage of yeltsinist 90s.


>"Occupy Pedofilyai" project, which were just pedo hunt videos
>In prison he abandoned NS and became a libertarian

>Mikhail Svetov is an ancap youtuber, who is also famous for dating a 15 years old

Why is libertarianism is so pedo-adjacent? What the fuck, lol


>the failure of the vulgar collectivisation strategy
What failure?

Why did he do it, lads?


Because he’s a rotten scoundrel and an antisemite


So is Memorial going down or no?
I've read they also had a pedophile as one of its leaders.


Memorial goes down gradually, due to them being retards unable to sniff the winds of time


do what?


Lie and lie and lie and lie. Also, being a sntich to the authorities, but that's not really a bad thing.


What happens for Putin internally if he attacks and gets thousands of Ukrainians and Russians dead? Hes fascist level anti-communist.


What is there for him to gain? A country full of people dead hostile to him that can't speak his language?


he won't do that


>I've read they also had a pedophile as one of its leaders.
Yeah, one of their guys got busted with naked photos of his adopted daughter.
If it was regular CP I'd suspect the cops framed him but this is pretty damning.


Does Russia really need a buffer zone to its west or is there no chance it would get invaded, thus negating the need for it?
