Below is an abridged version of an article by Gennady Zyuganov, Chairman of the CC of the CPRF
The dawn of a new world. A great lesson for the world proletariat. A tragic, but lofty attempt of the working people to shake off the thousand-year-old shackles of exploitation, inequality and lack of legal rights. This was the Paris Commune. This year sees the 150th anniversary of this immortal feat.As we pay tribute to the memory of the Communards, we see them as titans who have inspired the following generations of the fighters for socialism.
¡Queridos habitantes de Ucrania! ¡Hermanas y hermanos!
En nuestros corazones arraiga profundamente el desasosiego. La desgracia golpea a la puerta de cada familia. Amenaza con el conflicto más terrible, conflicto fratricida. Se intenta malquistar al pueblo ruso y el ucranio, lanzar a uno contra el otro, romper nuestros lazos de parentesco y amistad. Así actúan siempre los instigadores. Atizan las llamas de la enemistad y observan cínicamente el resultado.
Dear people of Ukraine, brothers and sisters!
An abiding sense of worry has settled in our hearts. Trouble is knocking on the doors of every family. It brings the most terrible kind of conflict, a fratricidal conflict. An attempt is being made to set the Russian and Ukrainian peoples against each other, to sever our ties of kinship and friendship. Instigators always act in this way. They foment enmity and sneeringly watch the result.
