Featured Cuba Celebrated the Great October Socialist Revolution

More than 182 global representatives from the parties participated in the conference in recognition of the importance of the Socialist Revolution.

Member of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) Central Committee Secretariat, Jose Ramon Balaguer, laid a floral wreath on behalf of the Cuban people to commemorate the Great October Socialist Revolution.

The head of the International Relations Department of the PCC paid tribute to the revolution at Lenin’s Mausoleum and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Moscow.

Balaguer, during his address, stressed that the revolution must be kept in memory as a reference point for the desired world design.

Late former Cuban President Fidel Castro previously said that "without the existence of the Soviet Union, it would have been impossible for the existence of the Cuban Revolution."

In a message delivered by Balaguer on behalf of Cuban President Raul Castro, the head of state described the October Revolution as a significant event that marked a milestone in the history of humanity influencing the struggles for independence, decolonization and self-determination of the peoples.

At the conference, which hosted communist and workers' parties in St. Petersburg, the PCC leader attended ceremonies marking the significance of 100 years since the Russian Revolution's Great October Socialist Revolution – led by Vladimir Lenin.

More than 182 global representatives from the parties participated in the conference in celebration and recognition of the importance of the Socialist Revolution in world history, according to Gennady Zyuganov – the President of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (PCFR).

The October Revolution is one of the two historic events that took place in the Russian Revolution in 1917; the other was the February Revolution. The latter was born from World War I demonstrations which eventually overthrew Nicholas II.

Zyuganov said that an international meeting with all countries and analysis of the challenges of 21st-century socialism are scheduled over the next three days.

There will also be a march on Nov. 7 from the Lenin monument to Revolution Square, where a concert will be held.
