The following statement was issued by the secretariat of the VKPB (All-Union Communist Party of the Bolsheviks) central committee on 24 July 2020.
The Soviet and international communist and workers’ movement has suffered a heavy and irreparable loss. On 24 July 2020, Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva, general secretary of the central committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks, passed away in the city of Leningrad, as a result of a serious illness.
The heart of a staunch patriot of the Soviet homeland, a penetrating politician, an unyielding bolshevik, a fighter against opportunism and revisionism in all its forms in the communist movement, an outstanding leader of the international communist movement, a courageous woman, our dear friend and comrade has stopped beating.
Nina Alexandrovna was born on 12 October 1938 in a working-class family in Leningrad. In 1941, like many of her peers, she lost her father, who died at the front. She graduated from high school with a gold medal, with honours from the Leningrad Institute of Technology, a candidate for technical sciences.
In 1966, she joined the CPSU. As an honest party member, she always took a firm principled stand. For this, they twice tried to deprive her of her party membership card. Moreover, these were the ones who during the years of perestroika threw away their party cards themselves.
It was in the midst of Gorbachev’s perestroika, when the traitors to our homeland launched an attack on the foundations of socialism, that Nina Alexandrovna showed her firm bolshevik character by publishing on 13 March 1988 in the newspaper Sovetskaya Rossiya the famous letter ‘I cannot compromise my principles’.
Nina Alexandrovna became known throughout the Soviet Union and beyond. Her article exposed Gorbachev’s treacherous policy from a point of view of principle. The publication caused such a public outcry that the politburo of the CPSU central committee, at the request of Gorbachev, discussed Andreyeva’s arguments against perestroika in special meetings for two days.
For her and her husband, the publication turned into a savage persecution by her ideological enemies. This letter divided society into two camps – the partisans of the preservation of socialism and those who decided to destroy everything related to the Soviet period. It sparked a wide public debate and was reprinted in 800 regional and local publications.
13 March 1988 became the day of the rebirth of bolshevism.
NA Andreeva’s principle of life of was Stalin’s words: “Not one step back! This should be our main appeal. We must stubbornly, to the last drop of blood, defend every position … Our homeland is going through difficult days. We must stop and then push back and defeat the enemy, no matter what.”
From 18-20 May 1989, a founding conference was held in Moscow, at which the all-union society ‘Unity – for Leninism and Communist Ideals’ was established under the leadership of NA Andreeva. Nina Alexandrovna did not just declare the principles, she fought for them, fighting alone in the struggle to consolidate the masses who remained faithful to socialism, defending the Marxist-Leninist positions of principle.
At the third conference of the all-union unity society, political mistrust was expressed with the general secretary of the CPSU central committee, MS Gorbachev, demanding his expulsion, along with that of his whole clique, from the CPSU.
On 8 November 1991, the founding congress of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (VKPB) was held in Leningrad. The main aim of the congress and the creation of the VKPB was the rebirth of bolshevism, the revolutionary Marxist tendency, created and encouraged by VI Lenin and JV Stalin, the rebirth of the party which, in the holy war against fascism, led to the altar of victory more than three out of five million communists – their best sons and daughters.
Millions and millions of workers in the Stalinist decades of the history of the USSR selflessly built, strengthened and defended socialism. And the CPSU(b) of those decades was really their party, the workers’ party. Only such a party could lead the country to the victory of communism. The VKPB, created by Nina Andreeva, seeks to take into account in its work the achievements that the Leninist-Stalinist VKP(b) gave to the country.
More than 30 years have passed since the rebirth of bolshevism began. Having led the VKPB since 8 November 1991, Nina Alexandrovna won the respect not only of the workers of the USSR, but also of the entire international communist and workers movement with her loyalty to Marxism-Leninism, her dedication to the cause of Lenin and Stalin in the struggle against the bourgeoisie, opportunism, zionism and fascism, and for the bolshevisation of the communist movement.
Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva published the following books: Intact Principles, For Bolshevism in the Communist Movement, and The Future Is for Socialism, which are in great demand not only in Russia, but also in the world workers’ and communist movement.
Under the leadership of Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva, the All-European Communist Party of the Bolsheviks, through its active work among the masses, achieved a shift in public consciousness towards the great personality of JV Stalin, who had been erased from Soviet history by lies, falsifications, and empty and vile slanders. Today, VKPB is growing and strengthening, wining new comrades, friends and allies, bringing a new socialist revolution closer.
All those who had the chance to personally meet and speak with Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva noted her invariable calm, her benevolence towards everyone, her clarity and certainty in her judgments, and the depth of her understanding of the situation. We will all miss this wonderful person in whom was concentrated an exceptional mind, a subtle intuition and a brilliant gift as a speaker and politician.
We are proud that fate has given us the opportunity to fight for socialism under the leadership of Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva. We will continue the red banner of Lenin-Stalin, raised by Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva! We will continue and lead to victory the work to which Nina Alexandrovna devoted many decades of her life – the struggle for the rebirth of our Soviet homeland – the USSR.
We express our sincere condolences to all the family and friends of Nina Alexandrovna Andreeva on the death of this wonderful person.
The memory of Nina Alexandrovna will remain in our hearts forever!
