Pandemic Cannot Curb Russia's Military Show

Thousands of spectators watched the traditional display of the military in Russia.(The Metro, 25-6-20)

        President Putin who claims Russia has passed the most dangerous stage of the pandemic didn't wear a mask and didn't mention the pandemic. 

         The official death toll is 8,513 but the country has reported more than 7,000 new cases.

          Russia has the third highest number of infections worldwide.

Some 14,000 soldiers--not in masks--took part in the parade along with a  flyover of helicopters and fighter planes. 

          This happened after the usual date of May 9th was postponed because of the coronavirus.

           All this happened ahead of a national vote on the constitution that could allow President Puitn to remain in office until 2036.

           The State Capitalist Russian government continues to show its military strength which protects the interests of the few--the Capitalist class.

           We want a world without leaders and the military etc. that oppose The Working Class throughout the world.
