Penza, 25 June 2015. PenzaNews.

“The fervor of the law enforcement forces in this issue looks odd, at the very least. The city is engangered by phone scammers, the people go missing, apartment buildings are covered in graffiti adversiting ‘spice’ and ‘salt’ drugs, numbers of knife fights and drunken fisticuffs are growing, but the police do all they can to fight those who came to pay respects to the founder of the first Socialist state in the world,” says the press release.
The message also stresses that the Penza Communists are actively assisting the restoration and improvement of Vladimir Lenin monuments in the region in the midst of the Ukrainian anti-Leninist scare, and are “ready to defend Lenin’s legacy to the last second.”
“We would like to urge the Penza police to do what they must: catch the criminals and prevent crimes,” says the message by the CPRF regional committee press service.
The court session will be held on Thursday, July 9.
As PenzaNews agency reported earlier, on April 23, 2015, the head of CPRF regional committee press service Sergei Padalkin and his assistant Margarita Abramova demanded to fire Alexander Artobolevsky from the Internal Policy and Mass Communications Department of the regional government due to his alleged involvement in administrative accusations against them after a group of Communist Party supporters brought flowers to the Vladimir Lenin monument on the 145th anniversary of the famous Soviet personality.
