Deputy of the Saratov Regional Duma from the Communist Party faction Nikolai Bondarenko said that calls to ban all left-patriotic forces, and to the Communist Party deputies to resign and go out into the street, are heard from those who can be considered a "political misunderstanding."
“The communists in all senses and primarily in the strategic plan are very dangerous opponents, because they claim no assets or finances, they are called upon to eliminate and abolish those orders, rules and laws that, in principle, allow this nature of big capital and oligarchy exist. Therefore, of course, they sleep and see how to prohibit leftist movements, equate them with something illegal and even more expel them from all parliaments,”Bondarenko said on the air of the Open Studio.
“Today the Liberal Democratic Party headed by Zhirinovsky is a structure that works to strengthen the current government. They are trying to reinforce, to give it additional strength, and this process, among other things, is associated with pressure and a fight against the enemies of the regime. Of course, when Zhirinovsky talks about the communists, he understands perfectly well that leftist sentiments are very widely and massively supported by the population, this is people's desire for justice, and above all socio-economic. The desire for an alternative to the current predatory policy of endless appropriation of our national wealth by a handful of rich people, of course, this alternative will also be aimed against him, because people like Zhirinovsky and others like him will certainly be sent together with this regime to the dustbin of history,”the communist noted.
