Superpowers' tensions continue to ratchet up

A further deterioration in relations between the US administration, and its allies, with Putin's regime in Russia has ratcheted-up tensions between the two blocs.

This follows a massive build-up of Russian forces on the borders of Ukraine, followed within days by Washington's imposition of widespread sanctions against Moscow for alleged serious cyber and hacking attacks on US institutions, and the US electoral process. Then, on 16 April, Russia expelled ten US and three Polish officials in retaliation for US and Polish sanctions.

And although a proposed Biden-Putin summit has sought to de-escalate the crisis, the expulsion of Russian officials from the Czech Republic over Russia's alleged sabotage of an arms storage depot in that country back in 2014, has added fuel to the fire.

Meanwhile, protests are set to reignite this week within Russia against Putin, as the health of the jailed opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, deteriorates.

None of the beatings of the war drums and other machinations of the competing ruling classes of Washington or Moscow serve the interests of the working classes on either side of the Atlantic, who continue to suffer from the oppression and exploitation of capitalism.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
