    (I’m implying that you, as many others, equate “tankies” with “communists”)

    That’s why I restricted to only those worth their salt. Russian-right-wing larpers aren’t welcome in any communist group.

      Putin isn’t a communist. So no.

        Afaik it’s consensus for communists to be both anti-NATO and anti-Putin, as is my case. But since lots of people now just use “tankie” as a derogatory term for “communist” instead of “Putin supporter and Russian supremacist”, I felt like making the distinction was a good call.

          No, I definitely did not mean communist. I am a socialist, but I am sympathetic to communist ideas.

            Then I’m glad to be your acquaintance, comrade. We might have different ideas on how things could be better and how to fight for them, but we definitely know what the real issues are.
