Castillo is originally from Colombia. He was brought to Spain at age 16. When he started college in Spain, he joined a militant Communist group. The group was investigated by the Spanish authorities for arms trafficking, and to avoid arrest, Castillo went to the Donbass in 2014 and joined the Communist Party there. Obviously, the Communist Party in the Donbass is pro-Russian. There’s no such thing in nature as a “pro-Ukrainian Communist Party.” I hope I don’t need to explain why but if I do, please let me know.
Castillo died at the frontlines fighting against the Ukrainian army. The president of Colombia Gustavo Petro tweeted that Castillo wanted to be a revolutionary, and the revolution means peace, which in turn means that the young Communist died in the Russian war of invasion defending peace. This is the actual president of Colombia, which tells us everything we need to know about the prospects of that country.
Gustavo Petro is a former guerrilla fighter in a Marxist guerrilla force. It’s really curious that his statements about the war in Ukraine are identical to what Tucker Carlson says.
