The idea of leftists supporting Russia against "decadent culture" seems 
curious. It makes some sense in the context of Stalinism, but I think 
the only superficially anti-capitalist forces in the West who would 
focus on that are the third-positionists and fascists of various 
stripes, who have plenty of reason to support the reactionary aspects of 
the Putin regime anyway.

Yours
