Communist Party of the Russian Federation in the strongest possible terms denounces the interference of the USA in the home affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in an attempt to subordinate it to the American interests alien to the Venezuelan people.
The recognition of a self-proclaimed president of the country, of course will be a pretext of restoration of the USA dominance in the country and has nothing in common with human rights and democracy. American struggle for democracy is only focused on country’s oil and other natural resources with quite evident attempt to bring them under control of the US capital.
Thus, one more time we witness an example of an attempt to overthrow a legal national leader under the pretext of restoration of human rights and true democracy.

We reiterates our solidarity with President Nicolas Maduro, the Venezuelan people, the Communist Party of Venezuela and all forces defending national sovereignty and independence.
CPRF calls on all progressive forces of the world to prevent the most flagrant violation of International Law and support the only legal national President Nicolas Maduro.

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation with deep sorrow reports the death, on 9 January 2019, of Professor Anatoly Ivanovich Lukyanov, 88, a prominent Soviet Statesman and Party leader, candidate member of the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee in 1988-1990, the Chairman of the USSR Supreme Soviet in 1990-1991, member of the CPRF Central Committee Presidium in 1994-2000, State Duma Parliamentarian of the 1-3 convocations, Doctor of Law.
We are approaching an important date in our country’s history. It is a quarter century since the Yeltsin regime perpetrated a heinous crime. In October of 1993 tanks gunned down Soviet Power, the power of the people. Only mute echoes of that gruesome tragedy reach today’s young generation. But for those who were involved in and witnessed those dramatic events they will be forever alive, the pain will never subside and the soul scars will never heal.

On Thursday, July 19, CPRF State Duma deputies conducted a meeting on pension reform, protesting the inhibition of CPRF anti-crisis program in the parliament.
Prior to the plenary session aimed at discussing an increase of retirement age, parliamentarians appealed to the audience and mentioned mass protests across the country.
CPRF deputies reminded about the anti-crisis program initiated by the Communist party, aiming at creating the budget of development. However, the initiatives of the Communists have been blocked by the pro-presidential United Russia party.
The speakers noted that the actions undertaken by the Government were beneficial for oligarchs only as they have been keeping people’s wealth in their hands. They called for mass protests to repulse liberal reforms, and to ensure that the individuals who were in charge of these reforms should be permanently deprived of the opportunity to participate in politics.
The Communist MPs demanded the stop of “cannibalistic pension reform” and resignation of D. Medvedev’s government. The demands were supported by all participants of the action.
