MOSCOW, 22 APR – RIA Novosti. Communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov believes that the political leadership of the USSR 80 years, has not coped with its tasks and the implementation of the policy of restructuring and update: who would not like excuses, we socialism failed.

Thursday, April 23, marks 35 years to the day after the opening of the April Plenum of the Central Committee of the CPSU, which was proclaimed the policy of perestroika and acceleration. The leader started reforms made by the new General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee Mikhail Gorbachev, who was elected to this post at the March 1985 Plenum of the CPSU Central Committee.

“as for the reforms of perestroika – they are always held every 20 years in every country, the home renovation you also do every 20 years. What Lenin and Stalin achieved disintegrated the Empire was collected in the form of the USSR, restored industry, was built on 9 thousand of the best plants, the population, the majority of which in 1917 were illiterate, become the most reading nation. We started to produce machines, cars, planes, tanks and so forth, defeated fascism, abolished the effects of the war in a few years, become the leading European power. Here is the result,” – said Zyuganov RIA Novosti.

According to the politician, the American side in the 80-ies “groped” in the Soviet leadership “weak points” and used them for their goals – the collapse of the Soviet Union from the inside. He stressed that because of the wrong priorities of the political leadership of the country, the rebuilding turned into a tragedy.

“Here’s the result for us is obvious: the Soviet Union produced one-fifth of world production, a third invention was the Soviet, almost 40% of world passengers flying on Soviet aircraft “Il” and “Tu”. From the Soviet side regarded in the world, it produced 26% of the world’s electronic products, and now less than two – that the consequences of this treacherous policy. Who would not like excuses, we socialism failed. The Chinese side, following a brilliant policy of Lenin, Leninist-Stalinist modernization, has absorbed the best of Soviet experience, using its unique capabilities and specifics emerged as a world power, and, in fact, took the place of the USSR”, – the politician added.
