On April 22, 2016 CPRF members and supporters took part in flower-laying ceremony at the Mausoleum at Red Square to celebrate the 146th anniversary of Vladimir Lenin’s birthday.
The column of participants with red flags, flowers and wreaths. was headed by the CPRF leader Gennady Zyuganov who appeared before journalists upon completion of the ceremony.
“I would like to congratulate you on the occasion of birthday of Vladimir Lenin, one of the most ingenious scientists, politicians, publicists and statesmen in the world,” said the CPRF leader.
“A lot of people have been trying to improve mankind’s life, but very few of them were successful. Vladimir Lenin was ever – first person suggested building a kingdom of justice on the ground of labor, friendship, respect to children, women and old people considering them as basic elements of state policy”.
“Lenin has created the first-ever party of working class capable to rebuff invasion of the Entente, create mighty Red Army, work out the GOELRO plan as well as the New Economic Policy (so called NEP), successfully implemented in practice”.
Even under the conditions of civil war he was the first suggested building the state guided by ideas like: “Peace to the peoples! Bread to the hungry! The land to the peasants! Factories to the workers! All power to Councils!” And he has practically implemented this program “, emphasized comrade Zyuganov.
The results of national economy modernization initiated by Stalin and Lenin in Russia turned out to be amazing to the world.
The economy has managed to create the best equipment and defeat fascism. It could make the first space flight and establish a nuclear missile shield defending our country nowadays.
Gennady Zyuganov said, that he was sure that all the people would always honor Lenin and Stalin’s heroic deeds.
“They witness the activity of American globalism on further separation of the world in order to please its imperial ambitions. All actions are being done after destruction of Yugoslavia, separation of Iraq, annihilation of Libya. But once again they have encountered a strong resistance of progressive forces”, he stated.
“Two tendencies have been fighting each other in our country nowadays”, said the CPRF leader.
The first one, called state and patriotic, enables us to return the Crimea back home and to defeat hordes of terrorists in Syria.
It enables us to resist NATO aggression and strengthen defense capability of our country.
And there is also a liberal and speculative tendency which follows the thievish track trodden along the path of Boris Yeltsin and Yegor Gaidar.
Its supporters keep on selling the last piece of property, inflate prices, impose new taxes on citizens robbing them. This tendency is quite evident throughout the liberal government continuing to follow Yeltsin’s way initiated in 1991.
They have established so-called Yeltsin center which is bigger, than the Winter Palace. At dictation of CIA experts the thousand-year history of our nation is presented as a continuous line of crimes.
“How could the people who saved Europe three times within thousand years, saved our planet from fascism and made the first spaceflight, created the first-ever state of justice, be worthy of such an installation in the Urals, the ridge of our power?”
“We have submitted the program of 10 definite points to overcome the crisis to the State Duma. I am sure that it will get support “, he said.
“It is the program of creation, the program of support of talented people and all who would like to study and work honestly and live in successful, patriotic and well educated country”.
In the course of performance comrade Zyuganov informed that a legendary MMA fighter Jeff Monson famous for his left-wing views joined the ceremony at Red Square, and the day before he had a meeting with the CPRF leader.
“I asked Jeff a question about his way of understanding the idea that the world could not exist without justice and he replied that while visiting a lot of countries, he didn’t expect that there were a lot of misfortune in the world, a lot of poor and abandoned children and that capitalism had so much mocked at the nature”, said the CPRF leader.
Therefore it is necessary to save children, conscience and soul. And all progressive people of the world have to fight for it.
“We support this idea,” Gennady Zyuganov has emphasized.
The leader of the CPRF has also introduced Maryana Naumova, the girl champion and the world record-holder in powerlifting.
Comrade Zyuganov said that Maryana became 17 years old on that day.
She does active work in support of Donbass children, visits the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics, participated in humanitarian aid delivery.
“We have already sent there 53 convoys, 7 thousand tons of drugs, clothes, food, construction materials”, Gennady Zyuganov reminded.
The ceremonies dedicated to the 146th anniversary of Lenin’s birthday have taken place in hundreds of the cities and settlements throughout the Russian Federation.
