G.A. Zyuganov: The country faces the threat of liberal revenge
January 26 Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party G.A. Zyuganov spoke at a plenary session of the State Duma.
In 2014, we went to the Sochi Olympics in a large group of deputies. But I was forced to urgently leave Sochi on a military plane in order to provide rescue measures for our guys, who at that moment were shot, arrested, beaten in Kiev. We know very well how they set fire to the offices of the Communist Party of Ukraine and beat its leaders to a pulp. We were forced to take them out of hospitals and treat them in Russia.
[Zyuganov left to assist victims of the U.S.-ordered coup in Ukraine; President Putin stayed in Sochi to promote himself as a new Peter the Great opening his country up to the West. Indeed.]
Then this tragedy was repeated in a number of other regions. Last summer, we saw how a similar scenario was attempted to be implemented in Belarus. But I would like to appeal to the “party in power”: you see that your “partners” from the West have decided to clash head-on with our country. The question is not about Navalny. This is just an “incendiary shell” that was prepared and sent here in order to set fire to our own Maidan [Independence Square in Kiev, where John McCain and Victoria Nuland handed out pastries to violent, deadly rioters] and break Russian statehood. We are categorically against such a development of events.
We know perfectly well where it all starts and how it is organized….
The same thing happened in South Ossetia, when the glass-eyed Georgian security forces under the leadership of American generals first killed our peacekeepers and shot 49 out of 50 schools.
[The U.S. and NATO had just completed war games in Georgia when the government of U.S.-educated Mikheil Saakashvili attacked South Ossetia – that time with the Russian president at the Beijing Olympics – after having previously shelled the Ossetian capital and killed several people, including a Russian peacekeeper. U.S. Marines were still in Georgia during the five-day war that ensued. The U.S. military airlifted all 2,300 Georgian troops in Iraq – at the time the third-largest contingent of foreign troops in the country – back to Georgia for the war with Russia that began on August 8, 2008.]
I would like our oracles, who endlessly tell how everything will be fine tomorrow, just to remind the story a little. For the Americans, we have not been and will not be partners. To be strong, smart and successful, we must remember this. I will name just a few facts. Woodrow Wilson, exactly two months after the establishment of Soviet power, declared war on us. He spoke in the Senate and said that Russia should be divided into twenty parts and privatized piece by piece. Following this, the United States intervened in the war against us on the side of the Entente.
Then Roosevelt came, who realized that the Soviet country was unique. He sent his experts here and agreed with us about interaction. But the ruling class of the United States felt his sympathy for the USSR, and Roosevelt did not live to see victory in World War II. Many historians will tell you that he did not die of his own free will.
Nixon signed an agreement with us. And before that, John F. Kennedy advocated partnership with the Soviet Union. As a result, Kennedy was shot and Nixon was removed from power through impeachment.
Reagan called the USSR an “evil empire.” And Joe Biden, before even taking office as president, declared Russia enemy number one.
