To the Central Committee of the Tudeh (People’s) Party of Iran


                                               Dear comrades!

The Presidium of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation warmly congratulates you on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of foundation of the People’s Party of Iran, the first ever mass organization in the country’s history.

During these hard times, despite prosecution and repression by the authorities, your party keeps on fighting for the rights of the working class, for peace and socialism.

Today, solidarity and support are especially important for the communists of all countries. Together with your party, communist and labor parties of other countries we are ready to go forward to our common goal, fight for our common ideals, for socialism.

We are sure that despite all the difficulties, your party won’t change  the preplanned way and keeps on  strengthening the ranks and  increasing its authority in the country.

We wish you revolutionary firmness, determination and optimism in fight for the rights of workers.

Fraternal greetings,

 Ukraine continues to perform acts of legal arbitrariness and political blackmail  in Ukraine. The latest victim of outrageous pressure is Alla Alexandrovskaya, a champion of the interests of the country’s disadvantaged citizens, member of four parliaments, Honoured Citizen of the City of Kharkov, First Secretary of the Kharkov Regional Committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine.  The Ukrainian Security Service unlawfully arrested her on specious charges of “encroaching on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine.” On June 30 the Kievsky District Court of Kharkov, using trumped-up charges  ordered Alla Alexandrovskaya to be put under guard for two months.

What is happening in Kharkov fits in neatly with the so-called “decommunization” propaganda campaign. Alla Alexandrovskaya has long been the target of a baiting campaign in the Ukrainian media. National-Radicals have leveled  groundless charges against her, threatened her, and staged provocations not stopping short of attacking and beating her. All these Bandera-style actions grossly violate the country’s Constitution, but the authorities have done nothing to interdict these acts. The reason is that the ruling regime in Ukraine itself instigates and follows the practice of cracking down on dissent and persecuting communists.

This time around the victim of the policy emanating from the high offices in Kiev is a 68-year-old woman who has serious health problems. Already under arrest Alla Alexandrovskaya suffered a hypertension crisis. Nevertheless she is still in pre-trial detention. The falsehood of the case is becoming ever more evident and the situation ever more intolerable.

We demand from the Ukrainian authorities to immediately release Alla Alexandrovskaya from the Ukrainian Security Service incarceration.

We call on the world public opinion to support the courageous woman and rise to protect her against political persecution. We appeal to the international democratic and human rights organizations to demand from the Ukrainian authorities an immediate release of Alla Alexandrovskaya, strict adherence to the principle of supremacy of law, protection of democratic rights and freedoms of citizens. We hope that the UN Human Rights Council, the European Parliament, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch will take a principled stand on this issue. We count on the solidarity of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers, the Women’s International Democratic Federation and other groups.

“We also know that your party has made the significant contribution to the development of relations between our nations which are considered to be very important for us”, said comrade Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

“Vietnamese  people will never forget the brotherly help rendered to us in due time by the USSR and the CPSU. In our country we annually celebrate the birthday of Vladimir Lenin as well as the anniversary of the Great October Socialist revolution”, he added.

“The XII Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) focused our attention on the maximum use of market economy.
