Leningrad (“St. Petersburg”), Russia: Lenin’s birthday marked

On April 22, 2014, the birthday of the leader of the proletariat was marked by communists worldwide. In Leningrad, a rally was organized by the Russian Communist Workers’ Party (RKRP) at Lenin Square and was attended by members of the Red Front, the militant trade unions MPRA and Protection, as well as the Komsomol (b). Red carnations were laid at the monument in a sign of respect to the memory and genius of Vladimir Lenin.

The rally was not merely about remembering. Speakers primarily paid attention to the critical issues of today: the events in Ukraine, Russia’s economic problems, and the state of monuments to Lenin in Leningrad.

Russian communists to Putin: Take action to end genocide in Donbass

Donetsk’s People’s Republic (DNR) and Lugansk People’s Republic (LC) smothered in blood and fire 

Statement of the Moscow Committee of the EIF-CPSU Moscow City and Moscow regional committees ROT FRONT 

To: President of the Russian Federation VV Putin 

Citizen President! 

Every day brings news of new victims of Nazi atrocities unleashed by the Kiev junta’s fratricidal war on their own people behalf of the U.S. imperialists and ultra-nationalists. Meanwhile, your administration not only continues to make empty diplomatic gestures, but withdrew the permission of the Federation Council on the use of armed forces of the Russian Federation for the salvation of people abroad.  

On behalf of the working people of Russia, all internationalists and people of good will, the Moscow branch of the political party Russian United Labor Front and the Moscow organization of the Russian Communist Workers’ Party resolutely demand at this crucial hour for Russia and Ukraine:  

1. Immediately recognize the DNR and LC, formed on the basis of legitimate referendums held in Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine.  

2. Conclude with the DNR and LC agreements on economic and military cooperation, involving military assistance in case of military aggression, at the request of the legitimate authorities and victims of armed aggression.  

3.  Provide the DNR and LC with substantial interest-free to purchase any Russian goods, including weapons, not prohibited by international conventions.  

4. Immediately present the Poroshenko administration Poroshenko an ultimatum with two basic requirements:  

- within 48 hours,  withdraw all military and paramilitary forces from the territories of the DNR and LC and resolve disputed issues by peaceful means;  

- immediately stop political terror in Ukraine, aimed against the communists, anti-fascists and other opposition forces.  

5. Declare that in case of failure to comply with the ultimatum, the Russian Federation reserves the freedom to take any political, economic and military actions necessary to halt the genocide in the DNR and LC.  

6. Clearly state that Russia rejects any territorial annexations in the DNR and LC, as well as other administrative territories of Ukraine, as of June 2014.  

To show you, Citizen President, that our demands are shared by a large number of progressive people of Russia, we begin to collect signatures in support of these claims.  

If our demands are ignored, we will treat you like a criminal, guilty of inaction and failure to provide assistance to our brothers and sisters, as well as a traitor to the interests of Russians, Ukrainians and citizens of other nationalities suffering today from the NATO-fascist aggression in the DNR and LC, and will do everything in our power to dismiss you from your post.  

We do not want and will not tolerate criminal acquiescence to the Bandera fascist evil. Millions of people, not only in Russia and Ukraine, but also in the whole world, will never forgive you for  complicity in the destruction of the DNR and LC, which are today the main centers of the Ukrainian resistance to Nazism and the aggressive plans of NATO and, above all, the United States.

Leningrad, Russia: Hands Off Syria demonstration outside the U.S. Consulate, September 3, 2012.

Signs read: “Obama: Terrorist #1” and “Hands Off Syria”

“On September 3, the Russian Communist Workers Party (RKRP), Red Front and other progressive organizations held an anti-imperialistic, antifascist picket in front of the Consulate General of the USA in Leningrad ("St. Petersburg”). On that day about 30 activists, despite the rain, went out to express the sharply negative attitude to the policy conducted by the USA and their satellites that is military intervention in home affairs of the Syrian Arabian Republic.

“As of today Syria, surrounded by a ring of reactionary monarchies and military semi-dictatorships, remains one of the few secular states in the Near East. The rights and freedom won by workers of Syria today are under threat. Israel already has publicly declared possible use of military aircraft, and Turkish authorities the possible occupation of Kurdish north-east SAR.

"Representatives of RKRP and Revolutionary Komsomol held speeches on the picket line. Passers-by were handed a leaflet, prepared by the RKRP and Red Front city committees.”
