Seventy-two years ago, the people of the Soviet Union – through their own Red Army under the leadership of the Communist Party – defeated Nazi German fascism, thus not only ensuring the continuation and preservation of the achievements of the October Revolution, but also (for many decades), ensured peace in Europe and Socialist development in many countries of the world.
Today, German imperialism (within the framework of NATO) and in close cooperation with the United States – again stands on the borders of Russia. The government of Germany supported the neo-Nazi coup in Ukraine, it still supports the Kiev regime at the political, military and financial level. The struggle for the defense of the People’s Republics of Donbass (and for their progressive development) is of great importance not only for you, but for all progressive people in Europe and beyond.
We congratulate you, all the people of Donbass, and in particular Veterans of the Great Patriotic War on the Great Victory Day. We stand jointly on your side.
In the name of the German prople – Fascism will not pass! For peace and Socialism!
