 Comrade, these people are workers in uniform. I militarily defend the right
of Chechen national self-determination, but do not advocate the death of
every Russian soldier. We should support and fight for rank-and-file
soldiers turning the guns on their officers and the ruling class of Russia.
We are probably not going to attract them to this if we advocate their
physical liquidation.

 But those who murdered Chechnya and are suffocating the Russian working
class will, we can hope, one day face firing squads, whether their left
covers like it or not.
