2,000 people mark anniversary of Bolshevik revolution in Moscow

Moscow, Nov 7 (EFE).- Some 2,000 people on Sunday marked the 104th anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution, which led to the creation of the Soviet Union, in central Moscow.

“In the Red Square and the Manezhnaya Square, we held an act of patriotic left-wing forces to commemorate the October Revolution, which has brought together a lot of people, about 2,000 people,” the coordinator of the Left Front, Sergey Udaltsov, said according to the Echo of Moscow radio station.

Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov urged “all the (Russian) patriots” to mark the occasion, which he described as the country’s “most important festivity” that created “a new world.”

“And as long as we stay true to that festivity, we will have new victories and new achievements,” Zyuganov told reporters at the Red Square.

The occasion ceased to be an official holiday in Russia in the mid-2000s. EFE
