On Christmas Eve, Communist Party chairman Gennady Zyuganov congratulated his "friends" on this holiday, wishing them endurance and patience. To imagine something like this 30 years ago would have been simply unthinkable. However, Gennady Andreyevich “flirts with God” (in the famous expression of Lenin) for a long time, somehow he managed to compare the communist ideology with the teachings of Christ.
Unless he forgot at the same time that one of the main provisions of Christian teaching is a complete rejection of violence in any form (hello to Stalin!).
I forgot how the Bolsheviks, having seized power, first of all began to mercilessly destroy the Orthodox clergy in the country (hello to Lenin!).
I wonder how the ceremonies of laying wreaths at the graves of the main ghouls - Lenin and Stalin, and congratulating "friends" on Christmas fit into the brain of the communist leader?
Schizophrenia, not otherwise.
Or worse, a cynical calculation.
