The picket was held by the activists of the Revolutionary Komsomol — RCYL(b) and the party ROT Front.
At the end of the action the petition, which includes the requirement to the authorities of Serbia to immediately stop the prosecution of Aleksandar Đenić and condemns the inaction towards neo-fascist groups, was transferred to the Embassy staff. The petition was signed by some deputies of the regional parliaments of Leningrad, Kirov, Tomsk regions and the Republic of Karelia. The collection of signatures under the statement continues.
Alexey Stabbz, the First Secretary of the CC of the RCYL(b), the member of the CC of ROT Front:
“It is symbolic that the leader of young communists of Serbia is on trial as accused in the Day of Komsomol. Unfortunately, in the conditions of crisis of the global economic system that was demonstrated in Ukraine in the form of civil war, we see how reactionary, openly fascist organizations are increasing their influence in different countries of Europe with connivance and often with direct support of the ruling governments. This happens in Greece, Ukraine. Serbia is no exception.
It is characteristic that the attackers who were members of the neo-fascist «Serbian action» escaped responsibility, having demonstrated on which side is the ruling class of Serbia.
Demanding to release our comrade, we clearly understand that the strength of this requirement depends on the level of solidarity of anti-fascists all over the world. And we know that actions in support of Aleksandar Đenić will be held in many countries.»
