In St. Petersburg the Communist Party and its supporters held a March to lay flowers to “Aurora” cruiser in honor of the 103rd anniversary of the October Revolution.
Unlike the ceremony in Moscow, the action was unauthorized, but despite of all attempts the local authorities failed to prevent it.
This march was headed by the First Secretary of the CPRF St. Petersburg city committee, Deputy of the Legislative Assembly Olga Khodunova and Lenin Communist Youth Union members dressed as revolutionary sailors and red army soldiers.
During the march its participants sang revolutionary and Soviet songs. At the point of destination, near the cruiser, they performed the “International”.
Despite all bans, and repressions Communists came here to fulfill their duty to their fathers and grandfathers although the rally at the cruiser was not allowed – said Olga Khodunova.
Police officers have conducted themselves properly.
