Hands off the communists! KKE condemns the persecution of communists in the Russian city of Tyumen

The Russian authorities in the city of Tyumen on November 7, 2020, the day of the 103rd anniversary of the October Revolution, banned the events of the Communist Workers' Party of Russia under the pretext of the pandemic, violently suppressing them, despite the observance by the organizers of all the necessary health rules. In addition, they violently attacked and arrested the Secretary of the CWPR Organization and other executives of the organization, initiating prosecutions against them.

The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) condemns these anti-communist actions of the authorities in the city of Tyumen, which are part of the ideological-political operation to silence the revolutionary message of the Red October, which is especially evident since the authorities had allowed other mass activities, while in other cities related activities for the October Revolution were carried, without any particular problems.

Moscow City deputy for CPRF Nikolai Zubrilin.
The Lenin State Farm (Lenin Sovkhoz), a 2,000-hectare sprawl of fields growing fruits and vegetables on the outskirts of Moscow faces the danger of closing.
