Deluded Brits join pro-Russian Ukranian rebels

This BBC report— about a man from Manchester and a man from Scotland who have joined pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine and believe they are fighting fascism and imperialism– is rather saddening.

I suppose that’s the sort of thing a steady diet of the Russian propaganda channel RT (featuring Putin apologists George Galloway and John Wight) can do to you if you’re not careful.

Watch for a post at Socialist Unity hailing there poor guys as heroes in the struggle against NATO and Western world domination.
