On the 20 th anniversary of the All-Union Referendum held in the USSR.

March 17 this year marked 20 years from the date of the All-Union referendum held in the USSR on the preservation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The results of the tragic for our Soviet homeland in 1991 referendum are now kept quiet about by the present-day bourgeois reformers, but true Soviet patriots, by contrast, do not allow them to forget. They constantly remind citizens of the former once-united country, that their will is sacred, and the actions of the leaders at that time, against the will of the majority of Soviet people, are criminal.
The All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (AUCPB) since the very first days of the betrayal carried out by the counter-revolution has been leading the fight against the destroyers of the Socialist Fatherland, who ignored the results of the referendum which has supreme legal force. The AUCPB was the first communist party in the former Soviet territory, where in its program it stated that the restoration of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is its strategic objective.
However, while we, Bolsheviks, as consistent Marxist-Leninists examining various historical events from class positions, we consider it necessary to bring to the workers the truth, in connection with the holding of the referendum of March 17, 1991.
In matters of nation-building, we first of all proceed from the Marxist theory of the state. Thus, "the state - is a machine for maintaining the rule one class over another" (Lenin), and "a machine in the hands of a ruling class to suppress the resistance of its class enemies" (Stalin). The class nature of the Russian state until October 1917 was the dictatorship of the landlords and capitalists. As a result of the Great October Socialist Revolution, the Russian proletariat, in alliance with the peasantry, the state eliminated the bourgeois-landlord and created a fundamentally new type of state - the dictatorship of the proletariat.
Natural continuation of the revolutionary change in Russia was in the creation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The Declaration on the Establishment of the USSR, adopted on 30 December 1922 at the I Congress of Soviets of the USSR, stated: "Only in the camp of the Soviets, only under the dictatorship of the proletariat, rallying around itself the majority of the population, was it possible to destroy the root of national oppression, create a climate of trust and lay the basis of fraternal cooperation among nations ... The very structure of Soviet power, international in its class nature, pushes the working masses of the Soviet Republics to unite into one socialist family.
... The will of the peoples of the Soviet republics, who gathered recently at the congresses of their Soviets, unanimously agreed to the formation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and is a sure pledge that the union is a voluntary union of equal peoples, that in each republic is guaranteed the right to freely secede from the Union. .. "
The basic principles of the Declaration were specified in the Treaty on the formation of the USSR, adopted at the same I Congress of Soviets.
Thus, under the leadership of V.I. Lenin, according to his plan, which was implemented by J.V. Stalin, had created a multi-national socialist state - the voluntary union of equal and sovereign republics, built on the principles of proletarian internationalism and the unity of the socio-economic and political organization of society. In the Soviet state, the national question had been resolved completely and the best way possible, which until now had never existed in world practice of nation-building.
In 1924, the II All-Union Congress of Soviets adopted the first Constitution of the union of the proletarian state, and on December 5, 1936, the VIII Extraordinary Congress of Soviets of the USSR adopted the new Stalin Constitution - the constitution of victorious socialism in the USSR. In the Constitution was enshrined that the USSR is a federal state, formed on the basis of the voluntary association of equal Soviet Socialist Republics. Article 14 of the Fundamental Law of the State clearly identified the authority and running of the higher union bodies of power, and issues of self-determination were determined as follows: "The sovereignty of the union republics is limited only within the limits specified in Article 14 of the Constitution of the USSR. Outside these limits, each union republic exercises state power independently."
It is namely the voluntary delegating of separate state functions to the Union centre (Moscow) and the presence of Article 17 which guarantees to each union republic the right to "freely secede from the USSR" that allowed one the talk about genuine sovereignty of the Soviet republics.
After the death of J.V Stalin, Khrushchev's leadership in its policy abandoned the dictatorship of the proletariat, and proclaimed the idea of an all-peoples state. This was reflected in Article 1 of the Constitution, adopted in 1977 under Brezhnev. However, despite the introduction into the Constitution of the USSR of individual elements opportunistic in nature, Khrushchev, Brezhnev reformers and revisionists failed to completely emasculate its socialist base. The bourgeois remaking of the Soviet Constitution continued under Mikhail Gorbachev.
Yet the legal status of all the republics was clearly defined, and there was no reason to doubt their validity and the legal soundness of what Gorbachev's reformers waited for. Approval of all Soviet constitutions, the admission of new republics into the USSR and the introduction of amendments and additions to the constitution were carried out by legally elected deputies of the higher organs of Soviet power, representing the interests of all workers of the Soviet republics. With regard to the independence of republics which bourgeois democrats most care about, even in the last Soviet Constitution in Article 76 stated: "The Federal Union Republic (Russia) is a sovereign socialist state, which has united with other Soviet republics into the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics." Hence, there were no weighty legal reasons for initiating the All-Union referendum.
Statements by the bourgeois democrats during Gorbachev's perestroika on the legal imperfection of Soviet constitutions, the requirement that they review the alleged violation of freedom of the Soviet peoples and the representation of our country as a unitary totalitarian state from beginning to end, have been invented. The friendship of Soviet peoples, proved by years of joint work and struggle, multiplied by the socialist rule of law, did not require any referendums: the working people, freed from exploitation and under the dominance of public ownership had nothing to carve up. Therefore, the initiation of a referendum by the Gorbachevites should not be viewed as a campaign to preserve a unified state, but instead as a campaign to achieve their ambitious goals. What goals?
The policy of perestroika, the ultimate aim which put forth the task of a return to capitalism, started under the demagogic slogans: "More democracy," "More socialism." Since a sharp immediate return to capitalism, according to Gorbachev himself, was dangerous for him and his team, and so populist ideas "about the independence of enterprises," was thrown into society together with “the use of human factors to improve production efficiency" (i.e. propaganda about enrichment at any cost ), “the need for greater autonomy for the republics," etc. This policy revived petty-bourgeois elements in society, brought about the element of individualism, nationalism and separatism. The socialist foundations of life and a single state began loosening. This was the very thing that the reformers-Gorbachevites sought: removing barriers towards to capitalization and the creation of conditions for rapid implementation of the long-known principle: Divide - and Conquer!"
However, to remain at the helm, the “men of perestroika” under the pressure of public opinion had to manoeuvre and create the appearance of “necessary corrective action” in an “extremely complex situation” that the Soviet state “was in”. Gorbachev put forth the idea of signing a new Union treaty. But if you look into its essence, it becomes clear that this was a ticking time bomb under a single Soviet socialist state. The insidious idea was carried out by Gorbachev subtly and gradually from the beginning until the last days of his rule. Simultaneously, two goals had been achieved: on one hand - it soothed public opinion, lulling the vigilance of workers and on the other – it pushed forward the bourgeois reform of the country.
We follow the chronology of events.
On April 9, 1989 was the first action carried out by the nationalist forces in Tbilisi, Georgia.
22 August 1989 in Vilnius, Lithuania, the opinion of the Supreme Soviet of the Lithuanian SSR was published, where it said that the declaration of national Seimas of Lithuania on its entry into the Soviet Union (21 July 1940) and the USSR Law on the adoption of the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic the USSR (August 3, 1940) was illegal, null and void.
January 1990 laid the start of ethnic conflict with human victims between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the status of Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region.
On June 12, 1990, the Supreme Soviet of Russia adopted the so-called Declaration on State Sovereignty of the RSFSR.
To many Soviet citizens it became clear: over our great country, over our united common Motherland the Soviet Union, dark clouds were hovering; drastic measures had to be taken to rectify the situation. But Gorbachev's leadership of the Soviet Union, for whom the policy of the dictatorship of the proletariat was an alien thing, did not take any decisive action, but only published a series of useless statements and appeals. Moreover, continuing the disastrous policy of perestroika, on October 17, 1990, Gorbachev sent to deputies of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR "Guidelines for the stabilization of the economy and the transition to a market economy", which for the first time, presented a plan for reforming the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics into a Union of Sovereign Republics. Of course, this Union was not to have anything to do with the proletarian state - the Soviet Union.
On December 17, 1990, at the IV Congress of People's Deputies of the USSR, Gorbachev made a speech in which he promulgated the idea of having an All-Union referendum: "... I submit to the Congress a proposal - to hold a referendum across the entire country, so that every citizen can vote “for” or “against”, the preservation of the Union of sovereign states on a federal basis." Note: There was not even a mention about the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Here is the true aim of the conceived idea!
After stormy debate, on December 24, people's deputies of the USSR adopted a resolution stating: "In connection with numerous appeals by the working people expressing their concern about the fate of the USSR, and given that the preservation of a single union state is a major issue of public life, affecting the interests of everyone and the entire population of the Soviet Union, the Congress of People's Deputies of the USSR orders: the Soviet Union is to hold a referendum to decide whether to preserve a renewed Union as a federation of equal sovereign Soviet Socialist Republics in the light of the results in each republic individually.
Finally, the question of the referendum, scheduled for March 17, 1991, was formulated and published in the following form: "Do you consider it necessary to preserve the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as a renewed federation of equal sovereign republics, which will fully safeguard the rights and freedoms of all nationalities?” Hence it is clear: despite the mention of the full name of the Soviet people’s beloved Motherland, in the formulation of the question remained what seemed a minor detail - "a renewed federation of sovereign republics." What this is becomes clearer when one reads the published texts of the Union treaty. Well, what kinds of "rights and freedoms" were prepared by the bourgeois reformers in 1991 would become clear to working people just as soon after the implementation of their plans: the absence of the right to work at decent wages, the right to free education and medical care, etc.
In parallel with preparations for the All-Union referendum, work continued on editing the text of the so-called Union Treaty. The first draft of the Union Treaty was published on November 25, 1990. In it we read: "The USSR and the Republics allow the free development and protection of all forms of property ... The republics are the owners of the land, its mineral and other natural resources on their own territory ...". In the draft, you will not find even a mention of socialist republics, but instead, they appear as "sovereign" republics.
On the eve of the referendum of March 12, 1991, the draft "Treaty on the Union of Sovereign Republics" was published which is almost identical to the main provisions of the so-called Union Treaty. Within it, for the name of the union state, the drafters used the phrase "Union SSR" without giving any of its acronyms full transcripts. It was nothing other than a sheer mockery of 300 million people!
Little changed, even after the referendum. On June 27 and August 15, 1991, the newspaper Pravda printed the other drafts of the treaty, the last one marked with "Agreed on July 23, 1991”. Making reference in the preamble to the referendum on March 17 and having "blessed" finally, the citizens of their country with a new name – the "Union of Soviet Sovereign Republics" (and not Socialist Republics - FB) – the Gorbachevites with a stubbornness worthy of better use, retained the treacherous-perestroika essence of the previous documents, and continued the policy of capitalization and the collapse of a single federative socialist state.
And finally, after the August counter-revolutionary coup in August 1991, two weeks before the signing of the Belovezh Accords, on November 27, 1991 Gorbachev announced his latest document - a draft "Treaty on the Union of Sovereign States." In it was no mention of the referendum on March 17, and about the state structure of the Union, it reads: "The Union of Sovereign States (SSG) is a confederative democratic state ... The States forming the Union, reserve the right to decide independently all questions about their own development ... ". As you can see, it was suggested to the peoples of the Soviet Union that instead of the federation, which they voted in favour of, even if not fully realizing its meaning, an amorphous confederative formation was put forward, which in principle could not be created because it was based on a bourgeois basis, where each pursues its own interests. That is to say, that draft can be regarded as the last step towards the signing of Belovezh Accords which destroyed a great country – the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Nevertheless, despite the above arguments about the disguised plans of the Gorbachevites to use the referendum on the USSR for the bourgeois reform of the country, a fight around it broke out in all the republics. Outspoken nationalists and compradors led a hysterical campaign against the preservation of the Union state. In Lithuania, Latvia, Moldova, Armenia, Georgia and Estonia, the local authorities, fearing an outcome of voting unfavourable to national-separatists, took the path of blocking the All-Union referendum.
And yet in most of the republics the referendum took place. Across the whole country, in the voting lists were 185 million citizens, out of which 80 percent took part in the referendum who had the right to vote. In accordance with the Law in the USSR on the popular vote (referendum in the USSR), from December 27, 1990, voting results should be counted across the whole country, which was done by the Central Commission of the referendum in the USSR. According to the Central Commission, 76.4 percent of Soviet citizens said "Yes" in favour of preserving the Union state. In accordance with the decision of the Congress of People's Deputies, the results of voting on each republic were reviewed individually. The results were as follows: in the RSFSR (Russia) 75.4 percent of the adult population took part in the voting, 71 percent answered "Yes". In Ukraine, respectively - 83 and 70 percent, in Belarus - 83 and 83 percent, in Uzbekistan - 95 and 93.7 percent, Kazakhstan - 89 and 94 percent, Azerbaijan - 75 and 93 percent, Kyrgyzstan - 93 and 94.5 percent, Tajikistan - 94 and 96 percent, Turkmenistan - 97.7 and 98 per cent.
In the republics, where the Central Republican Committees had not been established, many people went to the polls, which, despite the obstacles by the authorities, were still open on this day. In the South-Ossetian autonomous region of Georgia, about 50 thousand people expressed their will, in Estonia - 300 000, in Latvia - more than 500,000, Lithuania - 600 thousand, and in Moldova - more than 800,000. The vast majority of them left on the ballot papers the word "Yes."
Thus, the majority of citizens who participated in the referendum voted in favour of the need to preserve the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The results of the referendum have supreme legal force, and in the Law in the USSR "On the popular vote (referendum in the USSR)," it is stated clearly: "A decision taken by referendum in the USSR, is final and binding throughout the USSR, and may be revoked or modified only through a referendum."
References to the Ukrainian bourgeois democrats’ republican referendum, which was held on 1 December 1991, are absolutely untenable for the reasons mentioned above. In addition to the question of the referendum "Do you agree with the Act of Ukraine's independence?", there never was talk about the separation and independence of Ukraine outside of the USSR. According to Soviet Constitutions, as noted earlier, the sovereignty of all the union republics was guaranteed in the makeup of the union state, that is, the results of Ukrainian referendum from a legal point of view, in principle, did not change anything.
The leaders of Russia, Byelorussia and Ukraine, who met in Belovezha Pouche, crudely ignoring the will of the Soviet peoples to live in a single unified state, signed an agreement establishing the so-called Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This act should be viewed as nothing other than a state crime with all its consequences: sooner or later there will be a peoples’ court trial held over the traitors of the Motherland, who must suffer the inevitable punishment.
Summarizing the above, we Bolsheviks note: The All-Union referendum held on March 17, 1991 should be considered from two sides.
On the one hand, there was no objective need for the referendum, but it was needed by the opportunist leadership of the country to push the idea of "renewal", i.e., capitalization, and making the process appear to have legal legitimacy. This political line on the creation of a "renewed union" is continued by the present day heirs of Gorbachev - the opportunists of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF), the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU), the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU), the Communist Party of Belarus (CPB) and others. We Bolsheviks are conducting a relentless struggle against these opportunists- "renovationists, exposing their pernicious ideas aimed at compromise with the bourgeoisie.
On the other hand, our party makes extensive use of the positive results of the All-Union referendum as the legal justification of our struggle to fulfil the sacred will of the Soviet people - the revival of the Great Motherland – the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This revival is only possible by way of a socialist revolution, the prerequisites of which are the result of the crisis throughout the world capitalist system that will all the more clearly mature in all the former Soviet republics.

A.A. MAYEVSKY, secretary of the CC AUCPB.
Report on the meeting of the Bureau of the Central Committee of the AUCPB for Ukraine, Moldova and Transnistria

One year has passed from the date of assumption of office (25 February 2010) of the 4 th President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovich. To commemorate this event, Viktor Yanukovych held a four-hour press conference at which answered questions from the audience and tried to sum up his first year. The results of a year of Yanukovych were summed up in the bourgeois weekly publication "2000", on the pages which questions were answered by the president of Ukraine, Vice Prime Minister Tigipko, ministers, MPs and other politicians, including NATO Secretary General, Mr. Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

The unprecedented attack by the regime of big capital of Yanukovych-Azarov on the rights of working people
The main result of Yanukovych's team is that in the words of the president "we have returned the country to the field of a real economy." Yanukovych also said that in 2011 "we will have it more difficult, but from 2012 things will begin to improve.
Why "we" will have it more difficult? (Similar to Cameron’s “We are “all” in this altogether” – But are we really “all” in it together?- FB)
The President named a number of reasons, but, summing up, the key is in the negative legacy that the current rulers were left with after the past Orange government predecessors. (Similar to Tory Cameron blaming the past Labour government for the mess Britain is in now– FB)
In particular, this is the world record in the economy's decline by 15%, the landing of the economy on a credit needle, resulting in the government on a monthly basis repaying debts of its predecessors amounting to $ 8 bln. (One billion U.S. dollars); the adventurous policies of the Tymoshenko government, which "instead of reforming the country, took to bribing the electorate," and virtually no headway in the Ukrainian economy during the five-year reign of the Yushchenko-Tymoshenko, when over 5 years, total GDP grew by 3.2 % ", etc. The president noted the positive dynamics of growth of GDP over the past year that was 4%.
And the President promised the citizens of Ukraine by the end of this year to bring the average pension ... right up to 1380 UAH(!), that all pensioners were "overwhelmingly happy" (Editor's note: $ 1 is approximately equal to 8 UAN).
The "crocodile tears" of pity flowed also from Deputy Prime Minister Tigipko. In an interview with a reporter from the weekly publication "2000", he had already publicly declared that he "does not like the proletariat." Vice versa. Now our esteemed Deputy Prime Minister is convinced that "citizens will accept and support the reforms."Well how can we not support them if, in his words, 2 million 800 thousand people receive a pension at the level of UAH 800, and 4 million 100 thousand receive 900 UAH, i.e. 7 million pensioners, about half of the available 14 million people of retirement age, receive a pension, on which you can not live. For this amount of pension, you can only pay for housing communial utilities and buy the cheapest medicine. There is not even enough money left over for bread. Therefore, our Deputy Prime-banker is confident that workers would support Ukraine's pension reform to extend the retirement age of women from 55 to 60 years, and men - from 60 to 62 (first – by separate categories, and then for all men). After all, this will bring further annual revenues of 500 million UAN to the Pension Fund (with a deficit in the fund of 40 billion UAH). The Deputy Prime Minister remains slyly silent that the average life span of men in Ukraine is those same 62 years old. Therefore, it is not the 500 million UAN that will plug a multibillion-dollar deficit in the pension fund (PF), but the fact that a pension that will not have to paid to the average man, because after 62 years of age, there will be a lot fewer men. And women will have to work another 5 years and plow on for the bourgeoisie in order to earn that same very pitiful 800-900 UAH. In this case, Tigipko himself does not need such a pension. And although officially it is believed that he has walked away from banking activities, his personal capital however, keeps growing. Currently Tigipko is among the 25 richest people of Ukraine with a capital of 510 million dollars (http://news.finance.ua/).
Much more open is loyal ally of Yanukovych, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov. He said from the beginning and still says that the reforms (adoption of Tax, Labour and Housing Codes, as well as carrying out pension and land reforms) will be arduous and painful. True, he does not say that they will be difficult and painful only for workers in Ukraine, but not for big business, for whom all these reforms and being carried out for.
As a result of more talks with the IMF mission in Ukraine, held from 1 to 14 February, according to Azarov, compromise has been reached "on most points of the memorandum on economic and financial policies of the Government of Ukraine in the next revision of the program of cooperation between Ukraine and the IMF."
And this compromise is that the price of gas for the population will be increased from April 1, not by 50%, but only by 30%, and this increase will take place in two stages: by 20% to 15 April and another 10% - July 1. But to compensate for gleaning from the population 20% for gas, the Government has obligations to the IMF to increase this year tariffs for public utilities on the whole by 62 %(!!). Their growth is also planned in two stages - twice by 26%: before 15 April and from 1 October 2011. And in Kiev, utility rates have increased by 30%.
The President had promised before the year-end an increase in average pension up to 1380 UAH a month. This will immediately be "eaten up" by the growth of tariffs for gas and utilities.
But the prices are rapidly growing not only on gas prices and utility bills. From February 1, a 30% rise in tariffs for the population for electricity if consuming over 150 kilowatt / hour per month.
Bread prices are rising. Analysts dealing with with agriculture, place responsiblity for this increase in bread prices on the worldwide trend rise in price of food. At a time when on the world market, a tonne of wheat costs at least $ 370-380 (about 2960-3040 UAN) in Ukraine the cost of procurement of 3rd class wheat (bread wheat, which goes to the production of flour) increased from 1,5 thousand UAH last summer to 2 - 2,1 thousand UAH per ton in early February 2011 and continues to rise. (P. Cherednichenko, "Commentary” № 755, 28.02.2011). Therefore, the flour mills are forced to raise the price of flour. And in Kharkov, for example, bread has risen in price by 15-36 kopecks. And in the Luhansk region, workers in some cities, for example, in Sverdlovsk, in general have been left without bread for several days, as flour mills have stopped supplying baking flour at a cheap price to achieve a price increase for flour and maintain "decent" level of profit. (For example, the capital of a Mr Yuri Kosyuk, owner of Mironovsky Bread Products stands at 930 million dollars. How can this "esteemed" gentleman sell bread at a cheap price, at a loss to his dear self?). At the same time in the same Sverdlovsk, in a large supermarkets, bread was in stock, but its price had jumped to 6-8 UAN a loaf.
Two years ago, Fidel Castro, in his "Reflections", wrote that the use of agricultural land for crop planting of canola and other crops that are used for biofuel production will lead to mass starvation in third world countries, due to a sharp rise in the price of food. Here in Ukraine, this process has begun.
The same excitement with buckwheat and soaring prices for this essential food for the people has been is caused by one thing. In Ukraine, the area under crops of buckwheat has been drastically reduced. As a result, the production of buckwheat during the years of "independence" in Ukraine has decreased by 2,3 times, from 420 thousand tons (1990) to 180 thousand tons (2009), while its yield dropping from 11.6 ton/ha to 7,6 ton/ha. But the amount of rapeseed production has increased from 90 thousand tons (1990) up to 1 million 14 thousand tons (2009), i.e., 11.3 times!
Generally, the attempt by Yanukovych to place full responsibility for the disastrous situation in Ukraine on his predecessors the Orange regime is sown with white thread. It's not about what kind of grouping of the bourgeoisie was or is in any given period in power. Yes, and Yanukovych before his presidency, was twice prime minister, and the second time already under Yushchenko, i.e., he occupied a key post in the Orange government.
The case lies in the willful destruction of the Soviet Union, the destruction of a single national economy and the transition to a capitalist path of development of Ukraine, as well as all the other republics of the former Soviet Union. That is shown by the immediate impact by the enrichment of small social stratum of property owners and reconstruction of a bourgeois class, on the one hand and, on the other, that led to massive impoverishment of many millions of working people, suddenly robbed and deprived of common ownership of means of production and turned into proletarians. Common ownership which was the economic foundation of socialism and the Soviet government, which ensured full employment and decent salaries, stipends, pensions, mass housing and the cheapest rent in the world; extremely cheap utilities and transport services (for example, one kilowatt per hour of electricity costed 4 kopecks., travel in a tram, trolley, bus, metro – 3 - 5 kopecks; for all the utilities we paid to ZhEKah, which, incidentally, carried out all its functions and ensured the maintenance of housing and communal services at the proper level; in Soviet Ukraine cars didn’t sink under asphalt due to breakage as a result of deterioration of sewer pipes, and pedestrians were not boiled alive in the sewers of hot water after falling down manhole covers that had been stolen for scrap metal), free education and health care, the rapid development of science, the highest level of culture, national in form and socialist in content. The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was among the ten most developed countries in the world, and the production of major industrial and agricultural production per capita occupied 1 - 3 place in Europe.
And now?! Statistics better than anything say everything. We present some of them (based on ZUBR-propaganda and the Cominform, www.cominformua.com), comparing the figures in 1990 and 2009.
Electricity production, in billions of kWh: 298.5 (1990) - 173.6 (2009), a decrease by 1,7 times, coal mining, in millions of tons: 155.5 and 55.0, respectively, i.e. an almost 3-fold reduction, and that, among other things, means the closure of hundreds of mines, massive unemployment among the miners and the complete decline of mining towns and villages, steel production, in millions of tonnes: 52.6 (1990) and 15.7 (2009 ), a decrease of 3,3 times, production of machine tools, per thousands of pieces: 37.0 and 0.1, i.e., a decrease of 370 times (!!), and indeed, metal cutting machines are the foundation of modern industry, and so without machine tools, can be no talk of any independent industry, and in fact, wholesale destruction of the industrial potential of Ukraine has occurred, production of sugar, in tons: 6791 - 1274.8, i.e., a reduction of almost 5.5 times. Ukraine under Soviet power provided the entire Soviet Union with cheap and good quality sugar (78 kopecks per kg, but now more than $10 / kg), and now sugar, as well as buckwheat is being bought from overseas (what an utter disgrace!), and 20 thousand tons of GM buckwheat which our "beloved" government of Azarov is promising to bring in from China. Over this period, over a hundred (!) sugar factories have been DESTROYED.
The destruction of socialist collective agricultural production and the destruction of agricultural engineering has led to the complete degradation and decline of all agribusiness. For example, the production of tractors during the period of "independence" has decreased from 106.2 thousand units to just 1,4 thousand units, i.e., more than 75 times (!). The rate of decline, or more accurately, destruction of livestock is shocking. Over the past 20 years, the number of cattle has decreased from 24 million 623 thousand heads, to 4 million 827 thousand, a decrease of 5 times; pigs – from 20 million 88 thousand heads to 7 million 677 thousand, a drop by 2.6 times, sheep and goats has decreased by 5 times! (These figures are fairly indicative of one thing: agriculture, and its animal breeding base has been deliberately destroyed by the current resurgent bourgeoisie. This is just the way it was done as in the early 30's by the Kulaks and semi-Kulaks, White Guards and their priests and the like, representatives of the former exploiting classes, who penetrated the rural Soviets councils and the kolkhoz (collective farms) . Modern nationalist propaganda falsely blames this on Stalin. But look now then, who is to blame, good gentlemen!? You cannot answer that? They will certainly answer for all their crimes against the working people of Ukraine, as well as against the entire Soviet people, they can be in no doubt about that. Remember, that their ruthless, barbaric attitude towards the people, the national wealth of our country, the USSR, and the plundering of its natural resources and raw materials will nurture a new STALIN, and all their campaigns of "de-Stalinization" of the public consciousness will certainly lead to the opposite result).
But one can not say that everything in Ukraine is so bad and that everything is in decline. There are "positive" dynamics. The production of vodka and alcoholic beverages increased from 30.9 million up to 55.4 million, 1.8 times; beer production, from 147.6 million given to 300 million, i.e., more than twice .
And it is not for nothing that Ukraine, according to WHO (World Health Organization), occupies an "honorable" in fifth place on alcohol consumption per capita. First place in this infamous list is Russia, followed by Hungary, the Czech Republic and Moldova. In this "honorable" five, as we see, there are three former Soviet republics, as well as two former socialist countries. People are drinking out of despair.
Our task, the task of the Bolsheviks, is to show a way out to the working people, which lies is one thing only - the destruction of bourgeois power.
And yet another thing the president of Ukraine said on the occasion of the anniversary of his presidency - the preparation of land reform, which will create a land market in Ukraine. The president will place the task in the first half of the year of drawing up and publishing a program of land reforms to get the land market up and running in 2012, It is the land of Ukraine, and its black soil remained the last of the national wealth of our country. And the present modern bourgeois rulers want to give the land to major local and foreign transnational capital, transnational corporations and banks. And no one should be misled into thinking that under the Constitution and relevant laws, the land is the "right of ownership by the Ukrainian people" (Constitution, article 13). Under the legal guise of fake owners, the real masters of the land will be Ukrainian oligarchs, as well as TNCs and TNBs. That will be the final enslavement of the Ukrainian peasantry, so cleanly robbed over 20 years of bourgeois reforms.
Of course, the workers of Ukraine are not sitting silently. Systematically, they break out in protest. I will cite some examples.
In early March, a rally in Kiev by small businesses was held against government reforms in the early winter, a strike took place by Kharkov drivers of electric transport (trams and trolleybuses). Medics at several district hospitals in Lvov region protested against health care reforms. Thus, the chairman of the trade union at Khodorovskii district hospital notes that there is not enough money to pay doctors and for current needs about at 1,6-2 million UAN. Deputy Minister of Health calls the legitimate demands of doctors and nurses, lies, claiming on television that in the Ukrainian health care system, everything is supposedly all right. As if debating with him, a health worker-union committee chairman says - try living on her salary at 1116 UAH: Bills have to be pay, a child sent to school and provided with all necessary things, and if one ends up hospital for a simple appendicitis operation, we'll write out a list of essential drugs and medications, as the hospital does not receive them, and then see how you can be treated on such a miserly salary.
A few words about local Mukachevo problems.
Yanukovych said that we are "going in to Europe."
The same way "we are going into Europe" in the town of Mukachevo.
The town central heating system has stopped working. And from next winter, in apartment buildings of Mukachevo, there will no longer be any centralised central heating. For over 4 months the elevators of 9 storey apartments blocks have not been working and our senior citizens, as in "civilized" Europe, climb to the 6 - 9-th floors up the stairs on foot. A family, mother and two children turned to the Editor of the AUCPB Bolshevik newspaper “Raboche-Krestyanskaya” (Workers 'and Peasants' Truth): the woman in her apartment in the early winter had her electric, then gas and heating cut off. It looks like we are going to be forced to have to live under such "European" conditions...

The task of the Bolsheviks is to instill class revolutionary consciousness in the ranks of the militant proletariat, unite and rally them to rise up to the struggle for the revolutionary destruction of capitalist rule, the struggle for the revival of our untied single Soviet Socialist Motherland.

About the events in the Middle East and North Africa. Libya
Since last December, there have been a series of so-called "colour revolutions" in countries of North Africa.
Tunisia. During the mass unrest from December 17, 2010 to January 14, 2011 the government of Ben Ali was overthrown.
Egypt. Mass rallies lasted about a month (from January 25 to February 11). The government of Hosni Mubarak was overthrown.
The social basis of these actions was the poverty of working people, on the one hand, and the extraordinary wealth of the ruling elite, on the other. Everything went along as Lenin said: the lower classes do not want to live in the old way, and are willing to do anything, even die in order to change their lives for the better, and the upper class is not in a position to rule in the old way. These are the objective factors of a revolutionary situation. But in order that the revolution was a true revolution, in which the change was not just a change of different factions of the exploiters at the pinnacle of power, but a change in the socio-economic system of the country where the working masses take power led by the working class, a “revolution” lacks the subjective factor of a true Revolution - a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary party, a party closely associated with fighting for the liberation of the people.
Therefore, all these "revolutions" are controlled by the West and implemented according to the Western scenario. These are the so-called first "internet revolutions" using the latest information technology (IT), social networks, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube. And the driving force behind these pseudo-revolutions was the well-do-do young people, including Western-educated people, using computers, the Internet, mobile communication, through which, so-called "Western values", Western-style democracy is imposed. (That is, advancements in IT technologies are used by the West against the masses, in the interests of monopoly capital, just as atomic energy can be used for peaceful purposes for the benefit of humanity and for war aims, destroying humanity in the process).
However, with the departure from power of the presidents of Tunisia and Egypt, the massive unrest continues. And they are due to the fact that the authorities have remained virtually the same ruling group, except for the presidents removed from the political arena, as the most notorious figures in the eyes of the people. For example, in Egypt, following the resignation of Hosni Mubarak, power is in the hands of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces of Egypt, of pro-American pro-Western orientation, the main pillar of the Mubarak regime.
In fact, we in these Arab countries are seeing the same tendency of the imperialist circles of the USA-Israel-NATO circles to replace the bankrupt pro-Western pro-American ruling regimes with others that will just as certainly not serve their people but their Western masters instead, just as was done earlier in Yugoslavia, then in Georgia, and Ukraine. The imperialists are trying to keep under their control and ideological influence the social mood of the masses, directing the legitimate grievances of peoples into the desired channel of imperialism. Therefore, we talk about these "revolutions" with quotation marks, because after they have been carried out, one grouping of pro-Western bourgeoisie pro-American orientation is replaced by another to the pinnacle of power, already openly serving their Western masters, openly betraying the national interests of their country, their people.

No sooner had the "colour revolution" in Egypt toppled Mubarak, a few days later on 15 February, protests began in Libya. But they were not as widespread as they were in Tunisia and Egypt, when the protests involved hundreds of thousands, millions of workers, so cannot be called even a “colour revolution”. Rallies in Libya were attended by a thousand, or maximum of two thousand people.
The demands of the protesters were the same as those in Tunisia, and Egypt: the toppling of Muammar Qaddafi from power. To date, Libya is divided into two parts: the western country with the capital Tripoli, under the control of al-Qadhafi and his supporters, and the eastern city of Benghazi (the second largest city in Libya) under the control of the so-called "insurgents." In Benghazi, an interim government was formed, headed by former Justice Minister Mostafa Mohammad Abdul Jalil.
According to Western media, a number of senior Libyan diplomats broke off relations with the regime of Gaddafi and the Libyan representative to the UN accused Gadhafi of genocide and demanded his resignation.
The UN Security Council imposed sanctions against Libya, including banning a series of senior government officials and of al-Gaddafi, as well as their families from leaving the country; Libyan accounts in Western banks worth more than $ 30 billion were frozen, Libya was expelled from the UN Council on Human Rights; the supply of weapons to Libya stopped. On March 10-11 in Brussels at a meeting of the NATO Council and the European Council, use of sanctions against Libya was discussed, including the possibility of using military force, of the introduction of the so-called "no-fly-zone" where Libyan planes would be forbidden to fly over Libyan territory, etc.
Directly off the Libyan coast there are several U.S. Navy ships, including the largest aircraft carrier "Enterprise" with 65-85 aircraft on board (fighters, attack planes, anti-submarine and reconnaissance aircraft), Mount Whitney ship, amphibious "Kersadzh ship. In general, off the coast of Africa, at time of writing were 23 warships and vessels supporting the 2 nd and 6 th U.S. Naval fleets, which, according to U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates "were ready for use when the appropriate decision was made." The composition of the group's ships also includes several amphibious ships with 1600 Marines, armed with tanks, artillery, helicopters. Finally, strategic nuclear submarines armed with ballistic nuclear missiles arrived.
It should be noted that the situation in Libya is fundamentally different from the situation in Tunisia and Egypt.
Libya is the richest country in Africa. It has the largest oil reserves in Africa (2% of world supply, 8-th in OPEC). According to the World Bank, the Libyan economy in terms of GDP, equals to $ 62.36 billion (2009) is 63rd in the world, in terms of GDP per capita, equal to $ 14,594 per year, Libya is among the 50 most highly developed countries, ranking 43rd place (2007). It should be noted that Ukraine on this indicator, is equal to 6,9 thousand dollars per year, occupies 81-st place.
Until 1943, Libya was a colony of Italy and then it was occupied by France and Britain.
On September 1, 1969 in Libya, there was a revolution. A group of young officers (the so-called "The Free Officers Movement, Unionists and Socialists") led by Captain Muammar Gaddafi (now a colonel, born 07/06/1942), overthrew the monarchy of King Idris I. Afterwards, the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya (from the Arabic "Jamahiriya" – the masses) was formed.
Exports of crude oil gives 90% of state budget revenues. These payments are not stolen and no one aquires them, but they are forwarded to the welfare of the people.
As a result, in Libya there is strong social security of workers. Allowance at the birth of each child is 5 thousand euros (about 55 thousand UAH.) and Libyan families on average, have three children. The average salary is one thousand dollars a month (in Ukraine, according to Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, the average salary in Ukraine is 2300 UAH, i.e. less than $ 300 a month). In Libya, education and health are free. One child in each family gets education abroad paid for by the state. Gas for domestic use is free. Fuel at petrol stations is sold at prices subsidized by the state, i.e. at very low prices. At the expense of the state's care of its people over the last 30 years, the population in Libya has increased 3 times and reached 6.3 million people. (And throughout the years of independence, since 1951, it has grown by 6 times). The average life expectancy is 77.5 years, for Libyans (including women - almost 80 years (79.88) Men - 75), i.e. comparable with the average life expectancy of Western Europeans. At the same time in Ukraine, the average life expectancy during the years of "independence" from the USSR has fallen to 67 years, including women - 73,4 years, men - 61,5.
The population of Libya are Arabs, and there are a small number of Berbers and Tuaregs, as well as remnants of former conquerors - the Turks and Italians. There are several communities of Copts.
Muammar Qaddafi himself came from the nomadic Bedouin tribe of al-Gaddafi. In the early 80's, Gadhafi renounced all offices of State, lives in a Bedouin tent and left himself the single title of "leader of the Libyan revolution." The power base in Libya are the people's committees.
The West played on ethnic-tribal contradictions, as well as on the desire of individual tribal leaders to enrich themselves on oil rent at the expense of the people. The colonizers, leaving Libya in 1951, left power to the tribes inhabiting the eastern region (Cyrenaica), now held by the "rebels", and if without the quotation marks, then counter-revolutionaries.
The Western world's media – the loud mouth of US-Zionist capital, presents information from Libya in a totally distorted view that is favorable to them. The Libyan air force is bombing not peaceful demonstrators but military bases and weapons caches seized by counter-revolutionaries.
On 22 February, Gaddafi spoke in an old barracks building, half-destroyed by an American airstrike in 1986, with a television address to the nation (we recall that during one of the U.S. airstrikes on Libya, predators killed Gaddafi's adopted daughter).
In a televised speech Gaddafi said that he could not leave the government because he is "no ordinary man, or even a president, but the leader of a revolution." "This is my country, the country of my ancestors!" proudly stated the leader of the Libyan people. Gaddafi emphasized that groups of teenagers under the influence of drugs attacked police stations and army bases, that the riots in Libya were "initiated from outside” that armed mercenaries from Africa arrived in Libya to overthrow his regime. He promised to form new people's committees.
In his televised speech Gaddafi said that the unrest in Libya is part of a foreign plan - "to break up Libya into several warring Islamic emirates – similar to Afghanistan, then U.S. and NATO troops could enter and seize the country's wealth." "Where were you all when Muammar Gaddafi fought against America, and then rebuilt Benghazi brick by brick?" rhetorically asked the leader of the Libyan revolution. Gaddafi also read a few articles of the criminal law, envisaging the death penalty for various crimes against the state. And Gaddafi finished his speech off with a promise to purge Libya of opponents of the regime "from house to house."
In Tripoli, weapons were handed out to all the supporters of al-Gaddafi.
It is clear that if the regime of Gaddafi did not enjoy an overwhelming majority of popular support, the government never would have taken such a step as the distribution of weapons among the people.

The struggle for oil and natural raw materials is
economic basis of contemporary world politics

Since October 1, 2008 the United States Africa Command, (AFRICOM) became operational, the decision on the establishment of which was taken by President Bush in February 2007. Within the scope of "AFRICOM" enter the entire African continent except Egypt, which remained "under direct responsibility” of the Unified Combatant Command unit / U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) responsible for operations in the Middle East and Central Asia. As stated by the U.S. military leadership, the new command was created to help "stabilize the situation in African countries, promoting peace and security." In addition, the command will "coordinate the work of the Pentagon's support of U.S. government programs in Africa in diplomacy and development."
According to experts, the creation of this command marks the beginning of a new U.S. policy on the African continent, in particular, an opposition to increased Chinese influence in Africa, because China has so far become the second economic partner after the United States of the Black continent.
TNCs and TNBs are attracted to Africa’s vast reserves of gold, platinum, diamonds, rare earth elements, etc. But the main thing is that it attracts foreign capital, especially the U.S. imperialists and the West to Africa, in this case, to the Arab countries in North Africa and the Middle East for of course, the oil.
Experts estimate that proven world oil reserves will last another 40 years, i.e. until about 2050. There are still undiscovered oil reserves, which may last another 10 to 40 years.
In other words, oil is rapidly running out.
In his reflections, Fidel Castro noted that coal is the energy base of capitalism, article 19.; oil is the energy base of modern capitalism, i.e. imperialism of the 20th and early 21th century.
With the depletion of oil, the era of the domination of capitalism in its higher imperialist stage will end.
The current level of development of productive forces has created a new nuclear energy base, and creates thermo nuclear energy, an energy that will become the base of the coming communist formation (based on what we know from the current level of development).
Imperialism can not emerge from the crisis into which it plunges more and more, without unleashing new wars and military conflicts in order to establish full control over the oil resources of the planet to renew their worthless existence.
On March 11, mass unrest broke out in Saudi Arabia, the biggest oil exporter in the world. There are continuing mass demonstrations in other countries in the region.
On the background of developments in North Africa, the joint military exercises conducted by the United States-South Korea, which were taking place off the coast of the DPRK were somehow overshadowed during that same time period. In different regions of the world, the imperialists are aggravating the situation, provoking conflicts in order to destroy rebels, to force their will on all countries and peoples, to force all nations to work for US-Zionist capital.
Imperialism is economically obsolete. But by itself it will not go away from the historical arena. To the objective factors of a revolution must be added the subjective factor. Namely, we need a Marxist-Leninist party of a Bolshevik revolutionary type which is closely connected to the masses.
This party is our party - the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks – the AUCPB. And our urgent task is to connect our daily party work with the masses struggle for their rights, to instill into the ranks of struggling workers Bolshevik revolutionary consciousness, to lead the struggle of the masses to free themselves from exploitation and oppression.
March 12, 2011, KIEV

By the Bureau of the CC AUCPB for Ukraine, Moldova and Transnistria
Having heard and discussed the report of the Secretary of the Central Committee of the AUCPB, chairman of the Central Committee of the Bureau of the AUCPB for Ukraine, Moldova and Transnistria "Only in struggle can we win the right to a decent life!", the Bureau of the Central Committee of the AUCPB

1. The world situation continues to steadily deteriorate. Modern imperialism, mired in a global financial and economic crisis, finds no way out of it, except by way of inciting new wars and military conflicts in the struggle for full control over natural resources and raw materials of the planet, primarily oil and gas.
2. In this regard, one should also consider developments in the countries of North Africa and the Middle East, as the first so-called "Internet revolutions" carried out to replace the discredited pro-Western regimes (Tunisia, Egypt) with other regimes, loyal and totally controlled by Western imperialism, U.S. imperialism, Israel and NATO. Mass protests are happening and in other countries: Algeria, Yemen, Kuwait, Oman and others. Mass protests started in Saudi Arabia, the largest manufacturer and exporter of oil in the world.
3. Under this same scenario is happening the so-called "revolution" in Libya. But here, the West has been faced with the stubborn resistance of the people, in their mass, devotees to Muammar Gaddafi and ready with weapons in hand to protect the gains of the Libyan Revolution in 1969.
Drawing on all sorts of comprador and treacherous elements using ethnic-tribal conflict, US-Israel-NATO imperialism threatened (and carried out-FB) to use force against Libya to overthrow the Gaddafi regime and take control of the largest oilfields in the country. (Libya is the largest oil producer in Africa and 8 th country among the members of OPEC).
4. US-Israel-NATO seek to take full control of the Suez Canal and the Persian Gulf to monitor the transport of oil and other natural raw materials and goods, including into China, which has now become the second largest economy after the U.S., a country with its own financial and economic influence in Africa, as well as to pursue to further ruthlessly exploit and plunder the peoples and nations throughout Africa, with its rich deposits of gold, platinum, uranium, petroleum, copper, cobalt, rare earth elements and other natural raw materials and mineral resources.
5. The strategic aim of U.S. imperialism is the conquest of Iran, DPRK (North Korea), Cuba, Venezuela, to get rid of unwanted regimes conducting separate and independent internal and external policies, and to establish full control over the world. In this regard, US-Zionist capital is conducting incessant work on the final enslavement of Russia and its transformation into a colonial raw material appendage of the West, as well as to prevent the transformation of China as imperialist China, into the largest economy in the world.
6. In Ukraine, the Yanukovych-Azarov regime, a regime of big business, using the passivity of the masses, continues an unprecedented attack on the rights of working people. By negotiation with the IMF, there are planned regular increases in gas tariffs for households by 30%, 62% - for utility bills. The plans of the bourgeois power include a pension reform with higher retirement ages: women - from 55 to 60 years, men - from 60 to 62 years, land reform with the creation of a land market for agricultural purposes, i.e. with the actual transition of Ukrainian black soil over to ownership by local oligarchs and transnational capital, and the transformation of peasants into slaves on land taken from them, the adoption of a Labour Code, sharply undermining workers' rights, the Housing Code that effectively deprives workers' rights to housing, etc. The AUCPB

1. Continue to conduct active agitation-propaganda work to expose the aggressive essence of contemporary U.S.-Western imperialism, which is on the verge of death and trying to slow down its inevitable end by fomenting wars and military conflicts, in order to establish full control over the natural raw materials and oil and gas resources of the planet, with a view of enslavement of all peoples and nations to delay imperialism’s inevitable death.
2. To expose the regime of Yanukovych-Azarov, the regime of big capital, conducting an exit policy of Ukraine from the crisis on the back of an unprecedented assault on the rights of working people and further rapid decline in living standards in Ukraine.
3. Explain to the peoples’ masses that to achieve a radical improvement of their lives, the power of capital has to be destroyed, and Soviet power restored, Ukraine returned to the socialist path of development, the Soviet Union revived, and that this is only by way a socialist revolution, when millions of working people will rise up to fight for their rights, for their liberation from exploitation and oppression.
4. Instill Bolshevik class consciousness into the ranks of the working class, working people, spreading Bolshevik press and literature, increasing subscriptions to the Bolshevik newspaper “Workers' and Peasants' truth” (Raboche-Krestyanskaya Pravda”. Local party organizations are to move over to the systematic production of leaflets on topical issues of everyday life of working people, exposing the anti-national character of the local bourgeois power.
