Transcript:First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for hosting us. I'd like to thank the People's Republic of Luhansk for giving us the opportunity to have this round table discussion about the strength of our unity. As you probably know in America the condition of fake news is just as bad, or probably even worse, as in Europe — in America. But, I have only been here for several days now, but I can already see that — what I've seen from this beautiful country and its people — your people are engaged in a heroic struggle against Fascism that has repercussions all over the world. And I would like to say it is a great inspiration to the communists and the anti-fascists that do exist in the United States that are seldom talked about. As you probably know in America we also have the problem of rising Fascism. Crimes — attacks against minority groups in our country — Jews and even normal working class people have been on the rise, as well as membership in organizations like the Ku Klux Klan. And I think the reason for this is both the fact that the government encourages these fascist tendencies both in America as well as abroad. And I think it's also the result of the lack of organization that we have among the Left in the United States. Ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union it has been this way — but ever since the foundation of the Luhansk People's Republic and the Donetsk People's Republic things have gotten better in terms of the Anti-Fascist struggle since the fall of the Soviet Union. So I just want to make all comrades aware — especially the comrades from Luhansk here right now — that your comrades in America greatly appreciate the heroic struggle that you're undertaking against Western Ukrainian Fascism and their NATO and American sponsors. Lastly, I'd like to support the Luhansk People's Republic whichever way I can in America. Me and several of my comrades and I have already contacted the Donetsk People's Republic to open a foreign office in the United States. And I'd like to receive your opinion on doing the same for Luhansk perhaps or something along those lines — that I might be able to help. And lastly, I just want to reiterate that comrades that do exist in America — we — sometimes it's easy to not think that there are forces in America that are in support of Luhansk or Donetsk, because our government is so terrible. But I just wanted to reiterate that there are — and we want to do whatever we can to help.
