Oleg Shenin is the leader of one of the most active splinters of the old Communist Party of the Soviet Union. He was a leader of the 1991 coup against President Gorbachev and spent two years in jail for his trouble.
Shenin is touted as a likely leader of a united Communist Party ticket to oppose President Putin in the 2008 Russian elections.
Below is the translation of a recent statement issued by Shenin’s Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, to mark the 89th anniversary of the October Revolution. Note his support for North Korea, Cuba, China and the revolutionary regimes of Venezuela and Bolivia.
