Donbass: InterUnit salutes Fidel Castro’s 90th birthday


In 2015, the Ghost Brigade (Prizrak) of Novorossiya created an internationalist anti-fascist military unit called InterUnit, which operates in the territories of the Lugansk People’s Republic. InterUnit is a military-political group composed of volunteers from around the world defending Donetsk and Lugansk from the U.S.-backed regime in Ukraine. It carries on the heritage of the Resistance against Nazism and other liberation struggles of the last century, and takes its motto from the Spanish Civil War: “No Pasarán!”

We, the internationalist militants of InterUnit, incorporated into the Prizrak Brigade, are honored to participate in the celebration for the 90th birthday of Comrade Commander Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz, organized by Communist Party of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Novorossiya. On Saturday, August 13, 2016, we’ll join from Donbass in the Cuban people’s celebrations, remembering the example of revolutionary struggle that Commander Fidel has given us during his whole life.

On this anniversary, from our struggle as internationalist anti-fascists in this liberation war waged by the heroic people of Donbass for more of two years, we’ll commemorate the glorious actions fought by Fidel and the Cuban people, not only in his country but in other lands, where his history of altruism and bravery offer humanity the greatest example of proletarian internationalism, such as the revolutions in Latin America and wars of liberation in Africa. 

Because today more than ever, as the the fascist and militarist puppets of yankee imperialism and its followers threaten humanity, we need more Fidel Castro, more Cuba, more revolutionary internationalism, to strike together against the fascists, declaring “No Pasarán!”

Long live Commander Fidel Castro!

Long live the people of Cuba!

Long live the people of the whole world!

From the free land of Donbass,

InterUnit, August 2016
