Dear Lemmy, as you may well be aware, racial hierarchies and colonial empires are doing good in these early 2020s. In particular, in the days of the war in Ukraine, it's important to point out the fascist tendencies at play.
Fascism and racial/cultural hierarchies are on the rise on every continent, from Turkey to Brasil, to China, to France, to India... Fuck all Nations! Destroy all borders, and long live autonomous Communes!
On the Ukraine side of things, there's a bunch of neo-nazis in the army, as well as more traditional nationalists/fascists. It's not exactly a secret, and the former president was very close to these circles:

On the Russian side of things, there's also a bunch of neo-nazis in the army as well as traditional nationalists/fascists. It's [not exactly a secret](https://www.respublica.lt/neonacizmas-rusijos-samdiniu-tarpe) either:

Both governments have long fought against popular movements and anarchist/antifascist networks. Both countries have neo-nazi/fascist militias parading down the streets and beating/killing random people. Just like France or USA have them too.
Don't trust me? Check out the wikipedia page on [neo-nazism](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neo-Nazism). Follow their sources and make yourself an opinion. It's very instructive, although very incomplete. I definitely recommend to check out the [Racism in Ukraine](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism_in_Ukraine) and [Racism in Russia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism_in_Russia) pages, too.
**Please remember that when you try to paint one side of a conflict as the good anti-nazi hero. Nazis are fucking everywhere. Fascists and nazis have been running the show in much of the world even after WWII ended. Nazi collaborators were responsible for France's war against the algerian people, and their grandchildren (spiritual or biological) are responsible for today's new repression, wars and genocides.**
We need to dismantle nazism and fascism at its root: the nation State and cultural supremacy. Yes, you should be proud of your local culture and land. No, that does not justify diminishing other cultures/lands.
**All we exploited/struggling people have to stand in solidarity with other people struggling for freedom and equality across the planet. No border divides us in the international socialist/anarchist movement. We will fight against all Empires for autonomous communities worldwide!**
PS: If you need more detailed resources on neo-nazi/neo-fascist/nationalist/traditionalist on the rise in a specific country/region, feel free to ask. There are chances i have some good articles/documentaries, and if not i've got ideas about who to ask.
