Anarchist Black Cross Dresden: Position on our solidarity work in Ukraine

A few days before the start of the war of aggression, we exchanged views with comrades from Ukraine, among others. What to do in case of war? For us it was clear that we would answer the call for help of our friends. We saw our possibilities of support very concretely in starting a fundraising campaign to support Operation Solidarity directly in Ukraine and people on the run outside. It was clear to us that there were activists who were already planning to stay and fight in Ukraine. With this, we clearly positioned ourselves and were also criticized for it. Therefore, in the following text we would shortly like to explain why we are doing what we are doing.

Ukraine: Antifascist action in the midst of war, part 1

In March, Anton, a friend of mine, told me about his intention to travel to Kiev. We agreed to stay in touch, and before his departure came up with the idea of collecting his experiences, thoughts and encounters into a series of articles that we could use to keep anarchist and anti-authoritarian comrades updated on the situation of anarchists in Ukraine in the midst of conflict. We reasoned that it would be more practical to base the articles on interviews of Anton by me, to allow him to focus on his other activities there. The final text, the one you’re reading here, has been checked and approved by Anton. This is the first article of the series.
