Lugansk communist reflects on year of trials and solidarity

Congratulations to all and happy New Year!

We’re nearing the end of the old year and, as is customary, I would like to briefly summarize its results.

Lugansk communist leader Maksym Chalenko
2015 was a year of trials for the communists of Lugansk, testing their ideological maturity, devotion to communist ideals and party unity. And the communists passed these tests with confidence, honor and dignity, preserving party unity, camaraderie and confidence in the victory of communist ideals.

2015 saw the launch of a new left-wing political organization in Ukraine, based on the best traditions, past experience and current trends in the development of our communist movement.

2015 was a year of solidarity. We met with many comrades from Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, France, Hungary, Slovenia, Poland, Britain, Belgium, Austria, Serbia, and countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, who are doing everything to ensure that the truth about the Donbass is heard in their countries despite the information blockade of the official authorities.

Special thanks to the comrades of the United States that throughout the year carried out actions in solidarity with Donbass in the “citadel of evil.” We had many pleasant meetings and encounters with communist and leftist organizations of the former Soviet Union, especially with communist organizations of Russia and Belarus.

The 2015 International Forum “Anti-fascism, Internationalism, Solidarity” united around Donbass all who are not indifferent to the practice of revolutionary struggle by communists, and all who have the welfare of the people of Donbass at heart.

See you in 2016 at the 2nd International AIS Forum!

Success to all, good luck, health and simple human happiness!

Peace for Donbass and forward to meet new challenges in the New Year!

With communist greetings from Lugansk,
Maksym Chalenko
