The leaders of the LDPR and the Communist party — Vladimir Zhirinovsky and Gennady Zyuganov — dispersed in the historical estimates of the value of the revolution of 1917 to the formation of the modern Russia. It is reported by TASS on Thursday, October 26.

“Any revolution is violence, and any violence begets violence then,” said Zhirinovsky, speaking at the parliamentary hearings “the 100th anniversary of the 1917 revolution in Russia: international aspects”.

Liberal Democrat recalled the “millions of deaths” during this historical period. “There should be a celebration of the defeat of the state, should be a memorial service, we must honor the memory of the dead. Need one to put a monument to victims of all Russian revolutions,” he said. He also added that the situation in Ukraine is a continuation of the October revolution.

Zyuganov did not agree with this assessment. “The revolution is not to invent in their heads, they are not exported. They occur when the upper classes cannot, bottoms do not want, and the government is unable to solve any problems,” he said. In addition, the Communist leader stated the need to continue the course of building a socialist model of society.

On October 19 the President of Russia Vladimir Putin during his speech at the meeting of the club “Valdai said that revolution is always the result of a deficiency of responsibility by all stakeholders. The head of state pointed to the ambiguity of the events of 1917.
