The US unfairly imposes guilt on Russia

The aim of the US statements on National Day for the Victims of Communism is to impose a permanent guilt on Russia.

 

Disproof

National Day for the Victims of Communism that in 2017 marks 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution took place in Russia is to remind the people of the deaths and suffering caused by communist totalitarian regimes. According to the White House, the US remembers those who have died and all who continue to suffer under communism.  www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/11/07/national-day-victims-communism,

Russia is not a communist country. According to the Constitution, "Russia is a democratic federal law-bound State with a republican form of government". www.constitution.ru/en/10003000-02.htm,
