Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine exactly three months ago, the West has focused not on protecting Ukrainian civilians, but on trying to force Russia, with the help of the Ukrainians, to surrender militarily. The „real war in the background“, the economic war, however, is undoubtedly directed against its own populations. In passing, it is stated that NATO will not participate in the war. But it does. The weapons come from the West, only the soldiers from Ukraine and other states. Strictly speaking, the war could not take place at all if no weapons were supplied. Everyone can understand the logic, except those who don’t want to understand it because they pursue self-centered, power-political goals that serve them alone.
The rise in inflation is a global phenomenon that is hitting the working class and the poor particularly hard. One of the biggest drivers of inflation is high energy prices. The same applies to the prices of food, especially fresh fruit and vegetables, and services, which continue to rise. The rise in rents and utility costs also continues unabated. Rising inflation has also been triggered by the effects of the Corona pandemic – interrupted supply chains, production slumps, tight supply of goods.
