I just saw the deputy prime minister of Russia on the BBC.Theres no guarantee that Russia wont do it again to the Ukraine.There are Russians there too.You can see how someone or nation can justify invasions.
The Left is non-existant in Russia.There is no critics of the the Putin govt because they have been silenced.So here we are fighting for the voice of the Left in Russia,and cant get their voice heard due to the suppression of dissent in Russia.The Left in America harps about the Patriot act,yet a nation as large as Russia,is still suppressed.By former KGB personnel no less.
Threatening to nuke neighbours is unacceptable.This is why people are wondering about a second Cold War.Its Cold war threats that dont belong in this day and age.It boils down to trusting Russia because of past actions in Hungary,Czechslovakia,and Afganistan.

The following is a list of Russian intelligence and what happen to their leaders until 1967

Dzerzhinsky,F.E. Cheka,GPU,OGPU,-1917-26,died of heart attack
Menzhinsky,V.R. OGPU,1926-34 died ,possibly poisoned by his successor.
Yagoda,G.G. NKVD,1934-36,executed in 1938
Yezhov,N.I NKVD,1936-38,vanished,presumed executed
Beria,L.P. NKVD ,MVD,1938-53,executed in 1953
Merkulov,V.N NKGB,1941,1943-46,executed in 1953
Kruglov,S.N NKVD,MVD,1946-56-dismissed
Abakumov, V.S MGB,1946-51,executed in 1954
Ignatiev,S.D. MGB,1951-53,dismissed.
Serov,I.A KGB,1954-58,transferred to GRU,ousted in 1963
Dudorov,N.P. MVD,1956-60,transferred to construction post.
Shelepin,A.N KGB,1958-61,promoted to Secretariat
Semichastny,V.Y KGB,1961-67
Shchelokov,N.A. MOOP,1966
Andropov,Y.V KGB, 1967
The last two i have no end dates for.As you can see they arent exactly pleasant to their own.

Actually, 'President' Putin is fighting for the Left. That's what Socialism is.

Fighting for the left is not socialism?

How can you make this statement?

Socialism cannot be defined as such!

Was Hitler fighting for the left? He was a socialist?

There are a million and one types of socialist, left right and inbetween.

Socialism by political definition is "left of center". Not all protesters are left, if that's what you're trying to insinuate.
