On April 23, the first International Scientific-Practical Conference of communist forces was held in Lugansk. Its aim was to analyze the situation and find ways to develop the left movement in the Donbass.
|Lugansk Komsomol leader Anna Brekhova.
The conference was attended by representatives of communist organizations of Russia, Ukraine, Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).
Members of the Komsomol of Lugansk were represented at the conference by Secretary-General Anna Brekhova, who called for the unification of the leftists of Donbass and abroad with the aim of jointly organizing a struggle against the forces of reaction, whose face is Ukrainian fascism.
“In the current circumstances, a split within the Communist Party is a crime against the proletariat, the people of the Republics and common sense,” said Anna Brekhova in her speech. “We follow the classical call to unite the proletarians of all countries, but we cannot unite ourselves. Who will follow our call if we split?
“Therefore, on behalf of the Young Communists of the Republic, I say: no splits, no internal division! We have a common enemy — capital, a common goal — communism, and we have to fight together in a united front.”
