The permanent leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov called the country’s president Vladimir Putin sovereign on the air of the patriotic television channel Tsargrad. He noted that people who advised the head of state to speak alone at the Eternal Flame do not understand what the “sovereign” is in our state.
“Those who advised Putin to speak alone at the Eternal Flame, in my opinion, do not think and do not understand what the sovereign is in our state. Our sovereign cannot stand alone at the grave of the Unknown Soldier. He has a commander, he has security forces, he has other people,” Zyuganov said on air of Tsargrad.
The politician critisized the decision to postpone the parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. He noted that “Lukashenko held a magnificent parade.” Instead of criticism, according to Zyuganov, the Russians should thank the Belarusians.
Also, the head of the Communist Party repeated what he said many times before: during the parade, the mausoleum should not be covered with plywood.
“If Putin, they say, is planning to hold the parade on June 24 and will not take the mask off the mausoleum, this will be a complete disgrace. The mask blocks it, both from the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, and from 32 marshals and generals who are buried there and commanded the fronts,” Zyuganov said.
But would the marshals and generals of the Soviet Union like to see Vladimir Putin on the platform of the mausoleum?..
During his speech, the head of the official Communist Party remained within the framework of the patriotic rhetoric of the Tsargrad television channel. He reminded the audience about the importance of cohesion in the fight against the “external enemy”, about traditions and roots, including religious ones, about the Russian people and Russophobia.
“They are now trying to turn the Russians into Anglo-Saxon traders,” said Zyuganov in the nationalist manner characteristic of official communists.
The speech of the head of the Communist Party faction turned out to be much more “right” than the report of the “patriot” Fursov or the comments of the “soft” socialist Nikolai Platoshkin. Much to the right from the center – today the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation stands firmly in such political positions, while sitting in the chair of the country’s main “communist”.
