Russia launched an invasion of Ukraine on the 24th of February 2022. As of now, hundreds of civilians and thousands of soldiers of both sides have lost their lives. Oil Prices have risen steeply. Working classes in the US and Russia and in fact all over the world will be poorer as a result of additional inflation, which in the past year in the US was already very high, at 7.9%. However, this war did not start in 2022, but rather in 2014, with the Maidan counter Revolution aided and encouraged by the US. There is a great present danger of this war spreading beyond Ukraine, if the US either directly or indirectly expands it.

The world is passing through a very dangerous moment . Why is this happening now? Our speaker, Raj Sahai. of ICSS, will try to explain it using Lenin’s thesis on Imperialism and War.
