MOSCOW, March 13 (Itar-Tass) — Editor-in-chief of Russian News Service /RSN/ Sergei Dorenko stated on Tuesday that he was quitting the ranks of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation /KPRF/.
He placed his statement to KPRF leader Gennady Zyuganov on his Facebook page, explaining that he had made the decision back in the autumn, but considered it unethical to announce it before the March 4 presidential elections.
According to Dorenko, he was quitting the KPRF not just because of Zyuganov's personality. "The thing is that party membership as such is becoming hilarious and ridiculous. You are no more. You were destroyed not by the Kremlin's decision. Earlier, you were senseless creatures for years, but the Kremlin liked playing with you. And suddenly, it no longer wants /playing/," the RSN editor-in-chief wrote wishing Zyuganov to continue to "move his Adam's apple, roar and threaten his class enemy."
Dorenko, a KPRF member since 2003, also said he had paid the membership fees until March 2012. He noted that he had "systemically paid fees to the KPRF in Wikipedia, and that now he would only support the online encyclopedia.
"Wikipedia turned out to be incomparably more important and useful for arranging life in my country than the Communist Party. Don't take offense, I'll pay your share to Wiki henceforth, it'll bring more good," he said.
