The All-Union Communist Party of the Bolsheviks (AUCPB) expresses a strong protest to the President and Government of the Republic of India in connection with the events in the state of Tripura, where the hooligan elements destroyed the monument to Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, the founder of the Soviet state, the leader of the world proletariat in Beloniy.
V.I. Lenin throughout his life expressed deep sympathy for the Indian people, who fought for liberation from English colonial rule. The Soviet state, founded by Lenin, provided all possible support to national liberation movements throughout the world, including India, and established friendly relations with an independent Indian state. The slaughter of the monument to Lenin in India is an affront not only to the Russian workers, but also to the people of India and to all progressive mankind.
The AUCPB demands the punishment of the criminals who destroyed the monument of V.I. Lenin.
The AUCPB urges the restoration of the monument to V.I. Lenin. The authorities' refusal to restore the monument can be regarded as an act of direct hostility to the Russian working people and the world proletariat.
