The leap year 2012 is receding into history. The year of the Black Dragon saw the worsening of Russia’s existing problems and brought many new problems. The country’s life during this period was marked by a tough confrontation between two trends. On the one hand, the majority of the Russian people were increasingly wanting to throw off their necks the multitude of parasites who were robbing them and bring about a turn for the better. On the other hand, the current “masters of Russia” went out of their way to continue milking the authorities. The contest of these two trends determined the social and political situation.
At the background of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict the events in Syria have become secondary. Meanwhile, the external intervention continues in this country.
First of all, on behalf of the CPRF I would like to convey sincere greetings to the Communist Party of Lebanon and the people of Lebanon. Please accept, dear friends, our greetings on the occasion of the 88th anniversary of your party which you marked recently.
We greet the delegates to this 14th International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties.
On November 7, the 95th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution, the popular Russian newspaperArgumenty i Facty devoted the whole of its first page and a spread to the topic: “1917:A Breakthrough or Downfall of the Country?”
Among other materials the paper carried the column contributed by Ivan Melnikov, First Deputy Chairman of the CC CPRF, entitled “October is Forever. A new era for Russia and the whole mankind was ushered in 95 years ago.” The issue had a circulation of 2.5 million copies. Below, the text of the column.
It is 95 years since the Great October Socialist Revolution. It has been and remains the main event in recent world history. The global significance of the October Revolution lies in the fact that it ushered in an era of socialism delivering real and indisputable results for the working people who took state power in their hands in the form of the Soviets of Workers’ and Peasants’ Deputies. The dictatorship of capital was replaced with genuine rule of the people on the basis of social ownership of the main means of production.
