In Moscow Left-Wing Opposition Marked Victory Day By Demonstrations And Meetings

The left opposition marked Victory Day by demonstrations and meetings in Moscow. As the RIA Novosti correspondent reports, the column of the supporters of the CPRF, the Movement in Support of the Army, the Union of Soviet Officers, Working Russia and other organisations marched in the centre of Moscow from the Byelorussian Railway Station to the Lubyanskaya Square where a meeting was held. Speaking at this meeting, CPRF leader Gennady Zyuganov sharply criticised the policy of US President George W. Bush who "by stating the withdrawal from the ABM Treaty has thus trampled under foot all international agreements." Zyuganov qualified the expansion of NATO to the East "a worrying symptom" and called for "uniting against those who are starting a new arms race." The speakers at this meeting spoke little about the victory in the Great Patriotic War. They traditionally criticised the "bourgeois power" in Russia. Few supporters of the Russian Communist Workers Party, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (Bolshevik), the Russian Communist Party - the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and other left radical organisations gathered at the monument to Karl Marx in the Teatralnaya Square in the centre of Moscow. According to the data of the Interior Ministry, about 15.000 people took part in the meetings and demonstrations of the left-wing opposition on Wednesday.
