In the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, members of the infamous “Citizens of the USSR” movement became more active. The organization operates in the city of Surgut. Their actions come down to writing letters to official bodies: the city administration, the department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the prosecutor’s office. Now the local organization is trying to enter into coalitions with opposition parties and is establishing contacts with them. The movement members do not plan to commit violent actions. Earlier, in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, in the city of Nizhnevartovsk, the FSB, the police and the Russian Guard detained a group of members of the “Home to the USSR” cell, who were preparing, according to the investigation, the seizure of administrative buildings. The activities of the newly created cell in Surgut are not of interest to law enforcement agencies.
The movement of “citizens of the USSR” to one degree or another is in every region of the country. The members of this organization believe that the USSR still exists, on the basis of which they refuse to comply with applicable laws, pay bills and obey the current government. They reinforce their views with references to legal documents, the constitution of the USSR and the RSFSR. Indeed, during the counter-revolution of 1985-1993, anti-Soviet and anti-communists rushing to power violated a lot of laws that existed then, and violated, among other things, the will of the vast majority of Soviet citizens to preserve the USSR, expressed by them in a referendum.
However, it is known that laws are the will of the ruling class, elevated to the rank of binding. The state at the same time serves as an instrument of the ruling class. Having made a coup, the bourgeoisie established a new order in the territory of the former USSR, returning the capitalist system. Now in the territory of the former USSR bourgeois laws are in force, supported by the power of the bourgeois state. No statements about the illegality of the existing state, no letters to the authorities can change the current state of affairs.
It is possible to restore the USSR in a new form only if Soviet power is restored on its territory and the construction of socialism begins. But this cannot be done by writing letters to the bourgeois authorities. For this we need a long, systematic struggle of the proletarians of our country for their interests, for their own, working cause.
