Russians celebrate Workers’ International Day

Moscow, May 1 (Prensa Latina) The Russian people on Wednesday celebrated International Workers' Day at Karl Marx Square in downtown Moscow.

“Undoubtedly, this is one of the most significant holidays in the world. Because solidarity is the most humane, powerful, and reliable weapon of a working man to protect his rights, interests, and dignity,” Gennadi Zyuganov, leader of the Communist Party of Russia, said.

In exclusive statements to Prensa Latina, the party leader sent a message to the Cuban people and Government on the date, and condemned the United States economic, commercial, and financial blockade against Cuba.

He also condemned Western support for Neo-fascism by sending arms to Ukraine, “where a new army is rearming to attack the Russian people,” he added.

Zyuganov highlighted the struggles for workers’ rights, such as introducing an eight-hour workday and better humane working conditions.
