Ukraine's Continuing Revolution:

the New Black!
New Black Nationalists Support Ukraine's Defeat of Russian Invasion 

New Black Nationalists Condemn 2nd Russian Invasion of Ukraine


It's began. At 10.01 p.m. E.S.T., literally one minute after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced military actions had commenced in Ukraine, the first explosion of missile strikes were heard in Ukraine's capital city of Kyiv. Within the first hour explosions were also reported in Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city, then in Mariupol just outside of Donetsk and Luhansk--the two regions Putin declared were now independent republics that he would defend to protect Russian speakers. Russian troops are also reportedly landing in Southern Ukraine around the city of Odessa from Russian vessels in the Black Sea.  

In short, a mass invasion of Ukraine is underway to accomplish two short-range objectives Putin outlined in a speech earlier this week: the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine. 

"Demilitarization" means wiping out Ukraine's major military installations, air defenses and air force, command and control systems. Second, "denazification" means the decapitation of the Zelensky government.  

Ukraine President Zelensky has declared a state of martial law. The streets of Kyiv are empty, and evacuation of the capital has begun as cars stream out of the city west towards Poland. 

And what is has been the response from American Empire, the "The Arsenal of Democracy"? Joe Biden announced the U.S. will announce more sanctions on Russia later today--sanctions that will have little or no effect on Russia for months.

American imperialism has abandoned Ukraine and left it for the Russian Bear to devour. The fog of a long-term war, occupation, and underground resistance movement has now underway. There are more questions than answers that will be clarified over the coming days and weeks. 

Vladimir Putin's invasion and subjugation of Ukraine marks an irredentist drive to revive Russian Empire. He has challenged American Empire and the entire NATO bloc and exposed their hypocrisy and fecklessness. 

The redrawing of American Empire's security architecture in Europe for the past eight decades is now up for grabs. It is yet another development that signals that American Empire is spiraling into decline and an existential crisis that leads to its collapse. 

So too, the Ukrainian people will have the last say about Putin's vision of being Peter the Great incarnate and leading a mystical revival of Russian Empire.

New Black Nationalist condemn the February 24, 2022, second invasion of Ukraine. We call on the Ukrainian people to rise, resist, and defeat Russian recolonization of Ukraine. We support the self-determination and full independence of Ukraine. 

Black people in America's Settler State and Ukraine’s people have a common destiny. We are both strategically positioned to topple two of the world’s most criminal empires. The future belongs to us.

New Black Nationalists Support Ukraine's Defeat of Russian Invasion 

Updated on 2.23.2022

Today, New Black Nationalists living in American Empire express our support for the Ukrainian people to rise, resist, and defeat any armed invasion and occupation by the Russian Federation. We condemn Russia’s 2014, imperial takeover of Crimea. We denounce the 2014 invasion of Donetsk and Luhansk, and Vladimir Putin’s declaration proclaiming the "independence and sovereignty of the Donetsk People's Republic and the Lugansk People's Republic." 

We issue this statement not as an illusory or romantic appeal for Ukraine’s people to resist. We know the price Ukraine’s people will pay in blood, pain, and death. We have seen it before. 

We know that Putin and his Kremlin thugs are a murderous gang that will stop at nothing to bring Kyiv under its bloody boot. Putin, like his predecessors Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin have always believed that from a historical, cultural and geographic perspective, Ukraine is part of Greater Russia. That will not change.

We also know that no matter what happens in the short-run, Russia’s imperial death march on Ukraine will mark the beginning of the end of Putin’s criminal regime. The spirit and sacrifice of Ukraine’s people in Kyiv’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) revolt will prevail.

As we write tonight, Ukraine is surrounded by 190,000 or more Russian troops. Artillery fire and shelling from the Russian separatist enclaves of Donetsk and Luhansk are occurring with increased intensity.  

Russian cyber-attacks on Ukraine banks and government websites are ongoing as various aspects of asymmetric and hybrid warfare are integrated into the forward deployment of Russia's most lethal armored units. Psychological operations, false flags ops, and disinformation campaigns are full-spectrum capabilities, including fake news accounts that Ukrainian soldiers are committing genocide against Russian-speaking people in Eastern Ukraine. 

With Russia's President Putin receiving authorization to use military force from Russia's parliament, the Kremlin's directive to evacuate Russia's embassy in Kyiv, and Ukraine President Zenlensky's call for a State of Emergency, the confluence of events is accelerating in Ukraine.  

Finally, President Putin's lengthy address denying Ukraine's national status, and revoking its right to self-determination, constituted the final argument to justify Russia's escalation of military hostilities inside Ukraine, and Russia's irredentist ambitions to Russify other former Soviet bloc nations with Russian speaking populations.  New Black Nationalists will be releasing a separate article on the implications of Putin's revisionist historical account. 

In sum, New Black Nationalist interpret these developments to mean a Russian invasion of Ukraine is imminent and will happen in days, if not hours.

The question has been debated for days now, if Russia is going to invade Ukraine? We hold that an invasion and illegal occupation has existed inside Ukraine since 2014. Further, New Black Nationalists find it difficult to believe that Putin has conducted this mass mobilization for no other purpose than to further destabilize Ukraine. That has already occurred. An escalation to change facts on the ground in Ukraine is in train. 

New Black Nationalists assessment is that Putin is a coward, but a calculating one. He fears the potential for fierce mass resistance Russia will surely encounter for any incursion outside of Eastern Ukraine, where Ukrainian majority speakers and Ukraine nationalist sentiments are greater. He also fears the Russian public witnessing mass numbers of body bags arriving back in Russia from Ukraine.    

For these reasons, New Black Nationalist stated on February 18, 2022, we believe at a minimum that,

"Putin will engage in a limited action in Eastern Ukraine, with a possible long-term garrisoning of additional Russian troops. We envisage Putin sponsoring a rump referendum to designate a new legal status for the Donetsk and Luhansk regions that binds them to Moscow's writ."

With some modifications this part of our predictive modeling has now happened, and we are now in phase two. Further we averred that, 

"Following a limited action in Eastern Ukraine or possibly in Southern Ukraine's Black Sea area, we anticipate Putin will reassess his options. Putin will likely evaluate the impact of sanctions against Russia and conducting a risk-reward analysis to access the costs of sacrificing energy revenues in exchange for driving up Joe Biden's unfavourability ratings caused by higher gas prices." 

We also noted that Putin's strategic calculations include weakening Biden by increasing the chances of Republicans winning the mid-term elections, before resuming efforts to fracture NATO. Here we are referring to the conflict driving up gas prices and creating other disruptions to the algorithms of American Empire's economic matrix. 

More significant though is the activation of Putin's fifth column in America's Settler State: The Republican Party. As the largest potential land war could break out at any moment, leading Republican Party members and huge sections of the party base see Joe Biden as more of an enemy than Putin. Such is the nature of the spiraling decline of American Empire and the disintegration of its vital institutions.      

American Empire's Russia Desk experts and apologists insist that if Putin's strategy of threatening Ukraine was designed to split NATO, it has had the opposite effect. It's true that cooperation and coordination of NATO military resources under America Empire's direction has increased. Especially viewed against the Trump Regime's dysfunctional isolationism that was a subterfuge to begin a transition to converting swaths of Europe into Russian vassal states 

However, what has largely been ignored is Russia and China's anti-American geo-strategic partnership is stronger now than ever. A freshly inked energy trade agreement between Moscow and Beijing on February 4, 2022, could serve as a critical backstop allowing Putin to more aggressively pursue short-term and limited options to further occupy and destabilize Ukraine. Moreover, Putin has already been making preparations for Western European and American Empire's sanctions.  

Russia is a petrol dollar predatory state, run by an alliance of the state security apparatus, Putin's favored oligarchs, and organized crime syndicates. Like New York's infamous crime family headed by Lucky Luciano in the 1930s and 40s, Putin is "The Godfather" presiding over "The Family," and making rational decisions based on its strategic calculations.    

On the larger geo-political chessboard, the most important strategic imperative guiding American Empire's foreign policy since World War 2 has always been to maintain tension and drive wedges between Russia and China. The geo-strategic prize has always been controlling Europe. But Secretary of State Tony Blinkin is no Kissinger: Progressive sanctions are no substitute for a three-dimensional triangulation strategy.    

In this Ukraine Crisis Moment, American Empire has failed spectacularly in forestalling the condominium of Russian and Chinese interest. As for maintaining Europe as the strategic linchpin in the NATO and Atlantic alliance, Washington is slowly but surely losing ground. In this regard, Ukraine is loaded revolver, and the safety lock is in the off position. Europe's security architecture is in the crosshairs of a new autocratic order.       

Come what may, New Black Nationalists and millions of Black people in America’s settler state support Ukraine's defeat of Russian imperial designs. We remind you that President Biden, Democrats, Republicans, Wall Street globalists, NATO, the U.S. military, and Chinese capitalists in Beijing are not your friends. They regard Ukraine’s people, your majestic land and Black Sea coasts as prizes in the Great Game of imperial venture to control Europe.

As an oppressed nation within the prison-house of American Empire, New Black Nationalists uphold the right of self-determination for all oppressed nations and people across the planet. We do so as principled nationalists and Fanonists.  

We believe that since the December 1, 1991, referendum of the Act of Declaration of Independence, approved by more than 90% of Ukrainian voters, Ukraine has never gained full control of its economic base and resources. At times, Ukraine has been run by Pro-Russian presidential puppets like Viktor Yanukovych, whose corrupt rule was overthrown by the Ukraine's Orange Revolution. So too, Russian imperial invasions forcefully seized and annexed Ukraine's sovereign lands. 

Thus, we still regard Ukraine as an oppressed nation that continues to struggle for complete national liberation from the imperialist dominance of Russia's security state. In the days and weeks ahead, the oppressed nation of Black people in America will follow and support Ukraine's resistance. 

When we use the term "oppressed nation," we speak not of poverty or unequal treatment: we speak of the denial by force and coercion of our right to determine our own destiny. This is nature of our struggle for national liberation irrespective of the imperial power or powers we must defeat to win our freedom.  

Black people in America's Settler State and Ukraine’s people have a common destiny. We are both strategically positioned to topple two of the world’s most criminal empires. The future belongs to us.

Russia's Second Invasion of Ukraine Begins: Bombing Reported in Kyiv: 
@10:01 pm EST 

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday announced a military operation in Ukraine, claiming it’s intended to protect civilians.

In a televised address, Putin said the action comes in response to threats coming from Ukraine. He added that Russia doesn’t have a goal to occupy Ukraine. Putin said the responsibility for bloodshed lies with the Ukrainian “regime.”

Putin warned other countries that any attempt to interfere with the Russian action would lead to “consequences they have never seen.”

He accused the U.S. and its allies of ignoring Russia’s demand to prevent Ukraine from joining NATO and offer Moscow security guarantees.

He said the Russian military operation aims to ensure a “demilitarization” of Ukraine. Putin said that all Ukrainian servicemen who lay down arms will be able to safely leave the zone of combat.

There was no immediate reaction from the White House to Putin’s remarks, but U.S. officials have repeatedly pledged to place overwhelming sanctions on the Russian economy and Putin allies in retaliation for a further invasion of Ukraine.
