In an announcement about the new position, Stanley, who taught at class at the Kyiv School of Economics this past summer, writes:
It was an honor to spend this time alongside the Ukrainian people, who are fighting the army of a bloodthirsty fascist dictator. As a leftist and anti-fascist, I believe this is the center of the fight against global fascism today… Vladimir Putin loves a bloodbath. The Ukrainian Defense Forces is fighting against the 21st century’s version of Hitler so that the world may one day be safe from the depredations of his regime.
He is hoping to encourage others to donate to Come Back Alive.
