Zyuganov said Putin's words about the Constitution of the USSR
First, both Lenin and Stalin was the formation of a unified and indivisible state, but many countries have gained independence, agreed to join the Union only if they will have the right to secede from the Union, told RIA Novosti the leader of the Communist party Gennady Zyuganov.
Earlier the President of Russia Vladimir Putin on air of TV channel "Russia 1" said that prescribed in the Constitution of the USSR right on secession from the Union republics, and then of the Communist party monopoly on power in the main document of the country in 1977, became a delayed-action mine.
"When negotiating, the terms on which to join the Union, many of those who have already gained independence, were willing to enter into it only on the basis of, if there is a voluntary right of withdrawal. And at first, both Lenin and Stalin were the "one and indivisible", - said Zyuganov.
He stressed that Lenin and Stalin got "disintegrated state", "Lenin saved thousand-year Russian statehood". Zyuganov said that when he formed the Union, it was clear that the basis of unity must lie "the idea of labor and justice, the single economic complex, a single powerful state property, a single strong army" and, in addition, "the United party and the common goal of building socialism" that provided "internal cohesion and courage that enabled them to overcome and defeat all the enemies that were".
"In the three constitutions was laid form of statehood. In the first two - Lenin and Stalin - it was about the dictatorship of the proletariat. Why? Because it was necessary to fend off counter-revolution inside the country and of the Entente, which was strangling the Soviet Republic. Needed a hard power, but the working people," said Zyuganov.
The Communist party leader noted that when we adopted the Brezhnev Constitution, there has been a national state, not the dictatorship of the proletariat. However, he explained that there is "one law of politics and history: the living Constitution, if they reflect the interests of the people, their aspirations and strengthen the state."
"I want to remind that in March of' 91 brought the issue to preserve the Union or not. Voted 78% - as much as recently voted (in favour of the amendments to the Constitution - ed.)... Voted, I went out and celebrated - thank God, saved the country," said Zyuganov.
However, according to the leader of the Communist party, when he came through the week for a meeting with Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin and politician Alexander Yakovlev, he realized that "they did not care about the decision of the people", they were fighting "for their armchairs".
"I would like to draw the attention of the government, if adopted the Constitution, let's think how to implement it, not how to remember (the past - ed.)", - concluded the leader of the Communist party.
