The Ukraine War: Dilemma for the U.S. Left

 The Ukraine War: Dilemma for the U.S. Left

APRIL 8, 2022 BY DAVID M. KOTZ. DEMOCRATIC LEFT. 

 

 

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was unjustified, and the U.S. Left must condemn it. At the same time, the Left should not buy into the distortions and half-truths in the portrayal of the conflict now being aggressively promoted by the U.S.  government and mass media. Neither should the Left consider looking favorably on Vladimire Putin’s Russia as a purportedly anti-imperialist force in the world, despite Russia’s past opposition to the U.S. war in Iraq and intervention in Libya.  Some background on the rise of Putin’s regime is helpful for working out a left-wing policy regarding the disastrous invasion of Ukraine.
