Russian Communist Party Plans 'Protest Revolution'

Russian Communist Party Plans 'Protest Revolution'

The Russian Communist Party (KPRF) has refused to cooperate with other opposition parties, intending to make its own nationwide protest movement of 'proletarians and patriots'.

      The KPRF's statement came shortly after Opposition's Coordination Council was elected through an online voting. The Council is now headed by anti-corruption blogger Aleksey Navalny, other famous members are popular writer Dmitry Bykov, environmental activist Yevgeniya Chirikova and Left Front leader Sergey Udaltsov.

       KPRF leader Gennady Zyuganov believes the Coordination Council will continue to pursue an unnatural liberal course for the country, based on provocations and foreign sponsoring. 

      The Communist Party said that the creation of a revolutionary class is one of his party’s primary tasks. Workers – specifically “proletarians and patriots” – should play a leading role in catapulting these protests onto a national scale.

      The KPRF is one of the four political parties of Russia’s lower parliament. It came second after United Russia in the December 2011 elections, not without a support from opposition movement.
