Today (29/08/2018) president Putin addressed citizens of Russia over TV and radio. The aim of his address was to explain his position regarding the proposed increase of retirement age. On having approved the general course of the government, he introduced a number of proposals aimed at softening the transition to the new system and its consequences. We asked the First Secretary of RCWP CC, the leader of ROT Front comrade Viktor Tyulkin to comment on the speech of the president.

Corr.: Viktor Arkad’evich, on a number of occasions you expressed your opinion that the issue of the pension reform is a sort of decency test for Putin. Why so and how you estimate the results of the test?

V.A. I believe that Putin has obviously failed this peculiar test. It’s come as an unpleasant surprise to many people that retain trust in him. Why was it so?

The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its support and solidarity with the workers in the Russian Federation, who are opposing and struggling against the plans of the Government, who intends to raise the retirement age for women and men workers.

Until today, the law of the Soviet Union of 1928 still applies, according to which the maximum retirement age is 55 for women and 60 for men. The Soviet Union was the first state in the world to vote and implement such a law.

The Communist Party of the Russian Federation conducted a meeting on pension reform, mentioning the inhibition of its anti-crisis program in the parliament.

The International Department of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) reported that the CPRF State Duma deputies conducted a meeting with voters on July 19 near State Duma building in Moscow. The basic theme of the event was dedicated to pension reform, as well as to the referendum on this issue planned by the CPRF.

ROBERT GRIFFITHS, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Britain, participated in this weekend's conference in Moscow on 'Marx's Capital and its Impact on World Development'. This is the text of his speech:

In 1867, Marx wrote to Johann Becker that Das Kapital would be 'without question the most terrible MISSILE that has yet been hurled at the heads of the bourgeoisie'.

Ever since, Capital has armed the working class with the Theory of Surplus Value, explaining why and how labour power is exploited to the profit of the capitalist class.

Communist Party of the Russian Federation leader Gennady Zyuganov opened an international conference on 'Marx's Capital and its Impact on World Development' in Moscow at the weekend.

With representatives of 37 foreign Communist and workers' parties and national liberation movements present, he paid tribute to Marx as 'the great scientist and revolutionary, the founder of communist theory'.

Russian Communist Workers’ Party - Communist Party of the Soviet Union (RKRP-CPSU) assessed the imperialist escalation and the position of communists.

The Political Council of the Central Committee of the Russian Communist Workers’ Party - Communist Party of the Soviet Union (RKRP-CPSU) issued a statement on April 16th regarding its position on the escalation of imperialist war. Under the title ‘Down with capitalism proliferating wars! The future of mankind can only be socialist!’, the statement evaluated the cases of Skripal provocation followed by the attack towards Syria, determening the imperialist rivalry and the position that must be taken by communists.

Towards the party of the New type – along the Leninist path.

INTRODUCTION

The Great October Socialist Revolution – is the best known revolution in the world, whereas its influence over the development of mankind it is the greatest among all revolutions known. Whatever the attitude to the Russian Revolution might be, any more or less literate human in the world has at least an idea of what happened in Russia in 1917 and who Lenin was.

There is a popular joke that the gun shot from «Avrora» battleship was the most powerful artillery shots ever produced in the world. There was only one discharge of the ship’s rear gun in the direction of the Tsars’ palace where the bourgeois Provisional Government held its meeting. Though it was a dry shot, the whole world of capitalism has been still flinching when recalling this event.

The Skripal case resulted in an extensive diplomatic crisis. Communist Parties warn about imperialist belligerence.

The so-called novichok poisoning of the former Russian double-agent Sergey Skripal in Salisbury resulted in a serious diplomatic crisis between Euro-Atlantic countries and the Russia Federation. Following the contradictory statements of the British government about the incidence, nearly 150 Russian diplomats were expelled from their positions in 25 countries. Communist Parties from the countries engaged in the expulsion campaign warn about the danger of imperialist belligerence.

Colleagues in ROSTELEKOM,

The Union of Workers in Telecommunications and IT of Athens SETIP, a member of PAME, and WFTU, expresses its solidarity and its support with the workers of ROSTELEKOM.

The layoffs that the company ROSTELEKOM plans to make to maintain its profits, replacing older workers with rights by younger and cheaper workers, is a situation that we, here in Greece, have already experienced and we live it every day.
