Russia to host major international communist youth festival: on Putin’s personal instructions

New Zeal

Yes, we all know that communism is dead in Russia… They’ve told us so often enough right?

So, why are 20,000 young communists from all over the world converging on Sochi, Russia, this October to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Russian revolution?

“The main agenda of the discussion program is to encompass the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations.”

The hosting organization is the old Soviet front World Federation of Democratic Youth which has been hosting such festivals every three or four years since 1949.

And guess who personally intervened to ensure that the grand event was held on Russian soil?

Vladimir Putin….that’s who. And he is very enthusiastic.

Here he is conferring with the Russian Festival organizing committee in February 2016.

Its in Russian, but it’s easy to get the gist.

This is a completely communist event. It will be the biggest youth festival by far, since the “collapse of communism.”

It will be Russia’s biggest international propaganda event since the Sochi Olympics.

It is endorsed and promoted by Cuba and the United Nations.

But most of all, by Putin and the Kremlin.

What are we missing here?
