With deep indignation, we in Russia have learned about issue of the warrant for arrest of comrade Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Everybody in the world know that the Lula the most influential politician of your country and that he become a winner at the presidential elections. This popularity – result of great social achievements, which the government of PT and the PT’s allies has achieved earlier. It is obvious to us that all charges against the Lula are prepared by the right forces with assistance of the USA. Reactionary forces don’t want to allow Lula’s elections. However, Honesty of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva at anybody doesn’t raise doubts! We protest against repressions concerning Lula, and we believe that workers of Brazil will remember the traditions of the October revolution in Russia to protect the leader!
In solidarity with the Luis Inácio Lula da Silva and with you,
Chairman of the Central Committee of the COMMUNIST PARTY OF COMMUNISTS OF RUSSIA comrade MAXIM SURAYKIN
