In her press briefing on Wednesday, May 3rd, Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Maria Zakharova condemned the Ukrainian regime of Volodymyr Zelenskyy accusing it of being blinded by “anti-communism” to such an extent that it abolished the holiday on International Workers’ Day—May Day—in February 2022.

Zakharova accused the Ukrainian regime of abolishing the rights and insulting the dignity of labour under the guise of its anti-Soviet frenzy while explaining how the International Workers’ Day was celebrated globally even before the erstwhile Soviet Union was formed in 1922 or the Russian Revolution of 1917.

She informed that the decision to celebrate International Workers’ Day on May 1st was adopted in a meeting of the First International in July 1889 to commemorate the workers who were killed by the US authorities in Hay Market of Chicago, Illinois, on the same day in 1886.

Calling the decision to abolish the International Workers’ Day celebration in Ukraine a ridiculous one, Zakharova mocked the Zelenskyy regime saying that several countries of the European Union, with which the former comedian’s regime identifies itself, also celebrate the occasion.

During her press briefing, Zakharova accused the Ukrainian regime of rewriting history per its own whims and said it reveals the true colours of the regime. She took potshots at the West for its incessant support of what she called Ukraine’s attempt to “excel Nazi Germany”. She called out the ‘hypocrisy’ of the West over its silence on the children allegedly massacred by forces loyal to Kiev in the Donbass region.

Zakharova cited how on May 2nd 2014, following the infamous ‘Maidan Revolution’ in Ukraine that toppled its elected president Viktor Yanukovych, the neo-Nazi forces attacked the Trade Union Building in Odessa to carry out a massacre of left-wing activists who opposed western aggression, which sparked the major conflict in the Donbass region, where the Russian-speaking minorities started fighting against Kiev-backed regime.

She also criticised how, allegedly driven by Nazi ideology, the Ukrainian regime has disowned and banned Russian authors like Pushkin, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and others, along with Russian literature. She compared it with the burning of progressive books by the Nazis in Germany.

Apart from the Ukrainian regime, Zakharova also criticised the West, led by the US, for violating human rights, acting against labour rights, and having no qualms about helping the Kiev regime with weapons that are used in killing women and children in Donbass.

Zakharova warned the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) military alliance against using the Finnish territories to launch any military assault on Russia. “We are closely following NATO’s plans regarding Finland. We confirm that Russia will be forced to take retaliatory measures of both military-technical and other nature to curb threats to our national security that appear in this connection”, she said.

She criticised the French government for violating the workers’ rights on International Workers’ Day as it unleashed state terror on the working class protesting the pension reforms. Zakharova also criticised what’s called a shoddy investigation by the European countries into the Nord Stream II pipeline explosion in September 2022, in which Russia has not been included.

While responding to questions from journalists on whether Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government is responsible for planning regime change in the West, Zakharova said that Moscow has never indulged in “colour revolutions” and didn’t play any role in ousting governments in any country.

Rather, she alleged, the West, especially the US, has played an obnoxious role in toppling elected governments in other countries. She told reporters that it’s the habit of western politicians to blame Moscow to hide their crises and to blame their rivals.

Responding to a question on how Russia is going to take action against the Polish authorities for the recent seize of the Russian Embassy’s school in Warsaw, she said counter-measures are in preparation and can’t be revealed now. Zakharova reiterated that Russia doesn’t merely use empty phrases but walks the talk.

Answering a Chinese journalist from CGTN on how Russia is viewing Chinese President Xi Jinping’s telephonic discussion with Zelenskyy, where he emphasised peace between the parties, Zakharova reiterated that Moscow stands on its previous comments, and criticised Ukraine for being untrustworthy.

Zakharova reiterated that the Ukrainian regime is strongly anti-communist in character. She cited a moment when one of the US delegates to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) stated before the Chinese envoy how “anti-communism” remains one of the US’s fundamental foreign policy pillars. Zakharova criticised the US for such an “anti-communist” stand and called the Communist Party of China (CPC) the largest political party and movement in the world.

Zakharova also informed the press about how the Russian government has rescued not only its citizens who wanted to be evacuated from conflict-ridden Sudan, but also of other countries, and condemned the Ukrainian regime for using its bias in evacuation much before Moscow’s special military operations in that country, during the Covid-19 evacuation in 2020.

She informed the press that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will be visiting the Indian capital New Delhi on May 4th and 5th to attend the foreign ministers’ meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Zakharova also informed that President Putin will visit New Delhi later this year to attend the SCO head of states’ meeting.
