Hopefully, the Ukrainian people and army will repel this invasion and the Russian people – as many are wont to do – will continue their struggle to stop the war and retire, asap, the Putin regime. If that is the case, I assume that democratic, progressive, and socialist minded people worldside will – with tactics in mind – do whatever they can to express their solidarity for people in both countries in their conjoined struggles. We would look worse than silly if we stood on the sidelines and looked on indifferently.
