Greetings to the organizers and participants of the
III World Congress
"For Friendship and Solidarity with Soviet people"

Dear Comrades!

The Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks greets the organizers and participants of the III World Congress "For Friendship and Solidarity with Soviet people" and wishes you all progress in this important progressive forum.
Fate had befallen upon us to live in a difficult and stressful period of history - the period of the collapse of the USSR, the collapse of the socialist camp, and as a result, a hastened assault by international imperialism on the social gains of working people throughout the world that were made during Soviet times, during the existence of SOCIALISM across 1/6th of the Earth's land.
Today, many countries are being rocked by powerful protest actions of working people in defence their social gains being taken away from them. In these actions, young people are actively involved, deprived of a future, with no chance of being employed and thus doomed to destruction. Imperialism either brutally suppresses the protests - essentially a class struggle (as it is in Europe) or skilfully uses the social protest and the population of young people for their own aims, directing it from off the rails of class and social struggle into a struggle against individuals of higher governing authority, against so-called "tyrants." Recently, this has been clearly seen in the example of the African continent (and the recent events in Iraq). Using the weak political literacy of the protesters, the imperialists of the West (the North Atlantic Alliance, among them the United States) throw their heavily armed Special Forces structures, professional intelligence, money, weapons, and use the information war - disinformation and so forth for the organization, inciting and committing of bloody riots and carrying out pseudo-revolutions, overthrowing regimes objectionable to USA which gains the chance to lead to the power their own puppets and then have the opportunity to plunder the country and their natural resources with impunity. (The oil of Libya has now been carved up between France, Britain, and Italy).
Yes, imperialism, especially U.S. imperialism, having fattened itself up nicely on war supplies during World War II, fighting against the communist ideology of the Soviet Union and throughout the years since 1917, has now temporarily triumphed. All possible means were involved in the struggle against the USSR. Paper devalued dollars were used to bribe unstable and greedy money grubbing-bourgeoisified leaders, and sophisticated, well-established methods of information and ideological struggle were used.
To combat the communist ideology, the U.S. successfully used the latest advances in communication and connections for strong anti-communist propaganda and a fifth column in the USSR and the People's Democracies from the local anti-Soviet "creative" elite, descendants of the exploiting classes, the underclass and the elements of the rising bourgeoisie (the ideological dimension of counter-revolution) politically abandoned by the revolution.
The introduction into the USSR after Stalin of capitalist market principles into socialist economy led to stagnation of socialist production. Nowadays, the enemies of socialism present this as the bankruptcy of socialism. A departure from socialist principles of economic management inevitably led to the appearance, at first, of an underground and then a clearly Soviet neo-bourgeoisie, including through theft and lack of control by the people over the activities of not only production (the economic aspect of counter-revolution).
The Communist Party of the Soviet Union (formerly All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks)), guarding the interests of working people under J.V. Stalin, after him, was gradually transformed from a political organization into a bureaucratic structure, increasingly contaminated by opportunists, careerists and bureaucrats. And then, after that, just enemies of the people, like Gorbachev. Recruitment of party members from Trotskyist Nikita Khrushchev, went along the principle of personal loyalty, and not of merit (the political aspect of counter-revolution - the degeneration of the ruling party). Under Khrushchev, all the Stalinist cadres were removed from the CPSU and from production, and replaced by Khrushchevites. This dealt a heavy blow to the socialist system, becoming the start of its degradation, bureaucracy and becoming bourgeois, starting at the top. By August 1991, the neo-bourgeoisie inside the USSR had already matured, had become economically strong and so it demanded political power. The internal situation in the country was already prepared for the implementation of a political coup and the establishment of power by the Soviet neo-bourgeoisie. The top echelons of the CPSU had turned out so incompetent, unable to meet the challenges of the time, having allowed ideology to "free float", which then left virtually no one in the leadership of the CPSU capable of taking responsibility for the country's destiny and future of the world as a whole, in the crucial days of August 1991.
Soviet man, under Stalin, crushing fascism in the II World War, had now been transformed in their offspring, due to flaws in the ideological education of young people, into philistines and purely consumers of benefits, politically ignorant and irresponsible for the future of their great Motherland - the USSR.
The unprecedented plunder of the riches of the great country in the period of the counter-revolution was carried out not only by the nouveau riche, but the former party nomenklatura of the CPSU and the "glorious" Komsomol. Most of the former Komsomol leaders have now become oligarchs, owners of banks having "privatized" public property, and wealth of the USSR. Today we have a monstrous income gap between 2-3% of the richest people in the country and the dire poverty of the rest of the 85% of the mass of the people. Petty speculators - the "middle class" - do not play any significant role in the production of anything important for the life of society and makes up only 5% of society. The advertised farming is being destroyed because of monstrous speculation by "intermediaries" and inability to return earlier loans from the sale of farmed products. The barrier for national food security has long been exceeded. More than 50% of food is imported from abroad and, as a rule, does not meet food safety standards. Large industrial enterprises have been destroyed. In agriculture, nearly all livestock farming has been destroyed, with large acreage of land overgrown by weeds. The army is degraded and disarmed through "reforms" to it.
Today, the export of our wealth and money abroad, into offshore accounts and banks is continuing on a monstrous scale. Inflation and poverty levels of the general population are constantly rising. The mortality rate is significantly higher than the birth rate. The destruction of a great country and its people is well underway. The high mortality rate is associated with the transfer of medicine over to a fee-paying privatised commercial system, and a poor free of charge corrupt health service, full of bribery.
The youth are deprived of prospects for a future because of high fees for higher education, and fee paying secondary schools. The youth are subverted by arbritaryness, vulgar sex, drugs, drunkenness, popularization of perversion in all amoralism, and educated to disrespect the older generation in that very same spirit of appeals made to them by Trotskyists in the early twentieth century: "The evil lies inside all of the old communists. Komsomolet, be talkative! Komsomolet - beat your fathers up!" Television, along with our depraved and amoral pop artistic bohemia succeed in the sexual abuse of young people. Criminality of society is growing. Most crimes are committed by young people.
I note that the conditions of life in all the former Soviet republics is even worse than in Russia. This is particularly true of Central Asian Republics, of which due to lack of work and grinding poverty, there is a never-ending stream of guest workers arriving in Russia.

Out the current situation on the territory of the USSR, there is only one way out - the rejection of criminal capitalism imposed on us by deceit and lies, and a return to the socialist system, the restoration of the Soviet Union.

HOW can this be done? WITH WHAT forces? WHAT has to be done for this?

It requires the rejection of the entire criminal bourgeois system, not by way of bourgeois merrymaking in parliament, but only through a revolutionary change in the socio-political system. According to Lenin, "reforms are concessions obtained from the ruling class, while maintaining its dominance. Revolution is the overthrow of the ruling class” (v.39, p.113). Revolution is impossible without a nationwide crisis affecting the exploited and the exploiters. A universal
crisis is present not only in Russia but throughout the imperialist world. This means that a world socialist revolution is maturing also.
A revolution is carried out by people, not parties and not leaders. According to Lenin - "The revolution can only be carried out by the masses, moved by deep economic needs" (t.14, s.238). In order for a revolution to take place, "We have to make people terrified at themselves in order to breathe courage into them." (Marx and Engels. Soch.t.1, s.417).
Today, the horror of existence and complete hopelessness of the future is already being felt by many. It is necessary to lift people from their knees, to breathe revolutionary energy into them and lead an assault against the criminal, immoral, dying, but still strong bourgeois system. For this purpose, according to Lenin - "Quite a small party is enough to lead the masses. At certain moments there is no need for large organizations. But to win, it must have the sympathy of the masses. And not always the absolute majority ... "(t.44, p.32).
A revolutionary party has to convince the masses of the correctness of its political line. Because today, our main task lies in the deep political education of the masses through propaganda and agitation by the spreading of our Bolshevik literature, rallies, pickets, interviews and speeches to various audiences.
We publish three national newspapers - publications of the Central Committee: "Hammer and Sickle” (Serp I Molot) in Russia, "Workers' and Peasants' Truth” (Raboche-Krestyanskaya Pravda) in Ukraine, "Forward" (Vperyod) in Belarus and a youth central newspaper "Revolution" (Revolyutsia) in Russia. We have a web-site: http / / www.vkpb. ru, as well as several regional sites. We also publish and distributes a lot of leaflets, brochures on the topic of the day and on major events of the past and present. We believe an achievement of our party for changing attitudes towards Joseph Stalin’s personality and contribution to history. At the beginning of our work (our party was founded on November 8, 1991 at the height of anti-Soviet hysteria in the country) people used to shy away from us at demonstrations, because we always marched with a portrait of Stalin. Our "friends" in the communist movement cowardly said that we would all be imprisoned, and dissociated themselves from us (The Russian Communist Workers’ Party, in particular). Today, twenty years later, nearly 90% of the population according to an opinion poll, oppose the policies of the regime on de-Stalinization of society. And those who were shying away from us before, are now too, IN FAVOUR of Stalin (are they just in favour of the shifting public opinion or have they indeed "matured"?).
Unity of all protest forces are needed to make a revolution.
Today in Russia, there are a mass of listed parties, including those who call themselves communist parties (it's hard to count how many of them have been founded by instruction or consent of the regime). Some of them have only three or more people in them. Three parties have the same Russian initials as our AUCPB or as pronounced in Russian - VKPB: These parties including our own AUCPB (VKPB) are, VKP(b) led by A. Lapin – made up of a few people who were expelled from our party including himself, or who were denied admission into our AUCPB (VKPB), and the VKPB ("All-Russia Communist Party of the Future" – Vserossiskaya Kommunistichestkaya Partiya Boodooshevo). The 2nd and 3rd parties were set up as directed by the regime and got their names also on the direct orders of the special organs of the FSB (former KGB) that created them. "The All-Russia Communist Party of the Future" is on full financial allowance of the regime. No activity by it has been observed lately. The identical Russian abbreviations were given by the regime to create confusion in the minds of people and to divert them away from our All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks – the AUCPB. The Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF) led by G. Zuganov- is not a communist party. This is a social democratic party. Its main job is inside the bourgeois parliament, dealing with the improvement of bourgeois power and has very generous financial support from both the federal budget, and the oligarchs and businessmen in the party.
The Russian Communist Workers’ Party –Revolutionary Party of Communists (RKRP-RPK) is a party made up of the small nomenclature, anti-Stalinists, opportunists, and by the words and actions of their leaders - a Trotskyist party. The RKRP-RPK wants to break into parliament by any means, deceiving people with promises to speak out for the working class via the parliamentary rostrum, which is untenable. Parties rush into parliament for the big money it has to offer them. For example, the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), led by Zhirinovsky receives out of the federal budget every year 125 million rubles (about $ 4.5 million) for maintenance and expenses. The Zyuganov party - the Communist Party of the Russian Federation gets a much higher amount, as it has 3 times more parliamentary seats than the Liberal Democratic Party has. The history of the last 20 years has shown that anyone who gets into the Russian bourgeois parliament is a faithful servant of the regime. And with no workers’ seats, "Trudovaya Rossiya" (Working Russian) led by Victor Anpilov stands for communist ideals, for Stalin, but has a wavering stance on several issues, depending on the situation, and is also eager to get into parliament. The other parties are either petty-bourgeois, nationalist, or liberal parties.
It follows from this conclusion, that appeals made by these other parties for us to "unite" with them organizationally, is not consistent.
We already pursue a policy of UNITY with everyone, who currently shares our stance on an issue put on the agenda of the day. Therefore, we hold many events in different regions of the country together with other parties.
At present, a difficult issue for us lies in the financing of the party, and the publishing of our newspapers. Naturally there are neither oligarchs, or businessmen in out party. Party membership fees make up the finances. Because of the extreme poverty of people, especially in outlying regions where a pension in the absence of wages is far below the subsistence level, some comrades are exempt from paying membership dues. In our party, there are many unemployed workers due to lack of jobs in the region of residence and massive plant closures.
We work hard. The work is complex. We rely only on ourselves. We have lost many of our comrades ... in "democratic Russia". There have been many cases of killings of our activists after they have been warned by the FSB to reject their "Bolshevik activity." "But where, tell me, and when, was freedom was ever delivered without sacrifice?" - said K.F. Ryleyev, a Decembrist, and one of the organizers of the Decembrist uprising at Senate Square in St. Petersburg in 1825.
The aim of our work is the revival of the multinational Union of equal nations and nationalities - the USSR, the restoration of the socialist system, where everyone will have a constitutional right to work, leisure, housing, free health care and free higher education. Our goal is the aspiration of the absolute majority of honest, decent Soviet citizens.
Change of regime can be realized only through socialist revolution.
Our way of achieving this goal lies in the most extensive propaganda and agitation among the population of the advantages of the socialist system over the capitalist system, as proven by history.
We are consistent fighters for peace in the world. But a world without war is possible only through the destruction of capitalism, because "under capitalism, and especially in its imperialist stage, war is inevitable" (V.I. Lenin. V.26, p.165).
In our struggle, we are counting on the support of a united front against imperialism, for its active support for joint actions across the board.
We are confident in the correctness of our political line.
We are confident of victory, the victory of socialism, in the revival of the Soviet Union.
We believe in the victory of socialism on the entire earth, for it is an objective historical process of human development.

Proletarians and honest people of all countries, unite!

General Secretary of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (CC AUCPB)
