It is typical of this website to present a confused and reactionary viewpoint of reality.
Putin is obviously not a communist or socialist. However, he is a very astute leader of his country, which along with China, is currently under sustained attack by the reactionary, extreme rightist and decaying US empire (including the UK and EU), and is therefore deserving of conditional support as being the main obstacle to US capitalism. Furthermore, both Russia and China currently are the main defenders of the imperfect but currently only world system of law, the UN.
This US capitalist empire is composed solely of what in the US are called 'Liberals' - to depend on these creatures for any sort of progress is a deluded view. Putin is correct in his assessment of 'Liberalism'. The record of liberals in the UK is no better. But as usual, the viewpoint of "Workers Liberty" takes a reactionary and frankly right-wing stance, under a protective cloak of pseudo Marxist verbiage. You 'comrades' should just join the 'Labour' Party, where along with Starmer you will find plenty of other right-wing pseudo leftists.
