The situation with the spread of the coronavirus infection in Russia continues to worsen (on April 30 there are over 106,000 infected). Despite the measures taken for social distancing, the factual situation in cities simply got out of hand: lines in the Moscow metro, holding church services in many regions, in crowded spaces.

However, not only the virus is rampant in the world, but also the economic crisis. And here Russia, as in the fight against coronavirus, follows the example of the West. In some aspects it is more successful than in western countries, but in other aspects the situation is not so good.

The citizens of Russia have experienced the “beauty” of capitalism and, of course, blame the authorities. But the blame must not only be laid on the government, but also on the system itself that allowed the catastrophe happen. And along with the prosecution, it is necessary to make demands. These requirements are indicated in the joint statement of the communist and workers parties: the issuance of PPE to the population, the protection and support of medical personnel, the protection of the income and rights of workers.
