MOSCKOVSKI, Moscow region, December 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov said on Saturday he is set to unite various opposition forces in the country.
“A specific period begins in the fate of Russia. It is time to unite forces,” he told a congress of his party which is expected to nominate him for president.
He said the Communists may find potential allies both in parliamentary parties and in those denied registration who Zyuganov described as “Orangists” in a likely comparison with the Orange Revolution in Ukraine.
Zyuganov sees potential allies in the Just Russia and the LDPR. Even in the ruling United Russia “there are people who hope to use its possibilities in the interests of the Fatherland.”
“Among the Orangists there are many people who are sick and tired of the dictatorship of officials,” he added.
“The doors (of the Communist Party) are open for joint work. We call to cooperate on everyone who is ready to stop the fall of the country into an abyss and ensure decent life to our great and long-suffering people,” Zyuganov said.
