Judging by Western press coverage of the war, it’s possible that Zelensky is already using the Kremlin as a summer home.
Every week they report Russians surrendering, Russians dying, Russians ran out of fuel, Russians ran out of ammunition, Russians were cold without coats, they ran out of vodka in Russia…
even though he is a counterweight to American imperialism, we cannot forget that he is a right-wing conservative, who has been using the LGBT population as a campaign target which creates a tragedy so cannot have uncritical support for it. In the words of Alexandre Vasilenskas, on the phenomenon of Russian conservatism towards the LGBT+ population: “How much Putin can re-establish a sovereign project without putting capitalism in check is something to be observed. And it is “the issue” for Russian communists. Even those allocated in the limited PCFR. In relation to the LGBT population, a tragic crossroads was created, fortunately very different from ours: for the majority of the people, the civil rights of this population are identified with the tragedy of the 90s. It stands as a warning to the dangers of the “Ford foundation left”.”
The resistance of Bolsonarist generals to help indigenous communities and the insistence of these military personnel in facilitating the economic exploitation of the forest (even through illegal mining) are based on an antiquated concept of national sovereignty. For many Army officers, the defense of Yanomami groups is nothing more than a pretext for foreign governments to occupy the Amazon through NGOs, to take the region out of Brazil’s control. There are many books aimed at the military that spread these outlandish theories. One of these works was edited by the Army Library in 1995 and is studied until today. This is “A Farsa Ianomâmi”, written by Colonel Carlos Alberto Lima Menna Barreto.The content of the book justifies the title: Menna Barreto argues that the Yanomami never existed. released-in-95-book. According to him, “the Yanomami gentile [is] nothing more than [a] cunning and clumsy device imagined to bring together different tribes, groups and subgroups in the same ethnographic whole and, thus, in a subtle way and much to the taste of the media, changing the map of the Amazon for the most ‘noble’ reasons and without major traumas”. For the author, the agent of this “creation” would be the Swiss photographer, naturalized Brazilian, Claudia Andujar, who would have convinced the indigenous people to go through this process of “Yanomization”, with the exclusive objective of meeting “alien” interests (such as some military usually refers to foreigners). Menna Barreto reports that she had met indigenous people from those areas between 1969 and 1971 and only when she returned to the place, between 1985 and 1989, did she see them identify themselves as Yanomami. A scholar of themes related to the Armed Forces, the anthropologist Piero Leirner, from the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), criticizes the line of thought of the author of “A Farsa Ianomâmi”.“It’s as if the indigenous people were looking at the Armed Forces in reverse and saying: ‘There is no such thing as the Armed Forces, what exists there are three different groups, since they don’t dress the same, they do everything separately,’” he says ironically. “They (the military) use this reasoning to say that the Yanomami are not constituted as a society, that’s the point. That’s because they didn’t want to recognize the idea that being a society they would have a territory connected to them. In other words, the problem is to manufacture the information that is suitable for a kind of political struggle that the military was carrying out there in the 1990s and carried on” explains Leirner. “They didn’t understand the fundamental thing: those groups and subgroups live in a system. That is, there needs to be some level of relationship between them for things to work there and in the relationship with the forest, obviously. It is partial and biased information that they produced”. According to the anthropologist, this type of literature has influenced generations of officers, up to the present day. This is the case of generals Augusto Heleno and Eduardo Villas Bôas.
