comunistaDeclaration of August (2017) of the participants in the International Theoretical Conference of Communist and Workers parties; "100 years after the Great October Socialist Revolution, the lessons and tasks for the contemporary communists"

Our future is not capitalism, but the new world of the Socialist Revolution and the construction of socialism-communism.

We, the participants in the international conference, which met in Leningrad during the celebrations of the 6th Congress of the RSDLP (B), which adopted a line of immediately preparing the armed struggle for the socialist revolution, present this declaration as the joint position of the parties, which base themselves on Marxism-Leninism-the teachings on the socialist revolution, as an objective scientific law that is determined by the unresolved contradictions of global capitalism.

Russian Foreign MinistryOn July 27, the US Congress passed a new bill on tougher anti-Russia sanctions. This measure is further proof of the Unites States’ extremely hostile foreign policy. Hiding behind its own "exclusiveness", the United States arrogantly ignores the stances and interests of other countries.

It is common knowledge that the Russian Federation has been doing everything in its power to improve bilateral relations, to encourage ties and cooperation with the US on the most pressing issues on the international agenda including fighting terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, illegal drug trafficking, illegal migration, cybercrime, etc. Our understanding has been that we can only solve these global problems if we work together. We believe the majority of people in the world share this approach.

Russian Ministry of Foreign AffairsThe Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Moscow issued today a statement by Minister Sergey Lavrov on the murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov in Ankara:

This is a terrible tragedy. We are grateful to the Russians who have brought flowers at this time of night. I have received many telephone calls and internet messages. Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova has also received numerous messages of condolence from Russians and requests to convey their sincere condolences to the family on the heinous murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov. President of Russia Vladimir Putin has just had a telephone conversation with President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Turkish leader telephoned to express his heartfelt condolences on this tragedy. The presidents have agreed to conduct a joint investigation into this barbaric crime. A special investigative group will go to Turkey tomorrow to join their Turkish colleagues in investigating this crime. Our main goal is to learn who stands behind this crime. As President Putin said in a telephone conversation with President Erdogan and in his televised address, we are convinced that the main objective of those who organised this barbaric crime is to hinder the normalisation of relations between Russia and Turkey in order to undermine the effective struggle against terrorism in Syria. It is a futile attempt that will not succeed.
