On 7 November all over the world Russians of different ages and social status remember the Day of Grief and Irreconcilability, the following anniversary of October coup-d’état of 1917, when communists seized power in Russia. More than 30 million people in Russia became victims of the communists’ regime from 1917 to 1991, including the time of the Lenin’s repressions, the Stalin’s repressions, the repressions which were continued after Stalin’s death in 1953.
On 7 November 2009 the Russian Imperial Union-Order organised in Saint Petersburg at 12 p.m. requiem service near the grave of cadet Vladimir Alexandrovich, who was killed by communists on 12 November 1917 trying to resist to the coup-d’état. Then at 3 p.m. at the Trinity Square the demonstration was held. The Russian Imperial Union-Order and other anticommunists’ organisations directed their petition to the PACE and the OSCE. In the petition Russian monarchists propose to proclaim 7 November the International Day to Remember the Victims of Communism.
The same day in Moscow the Russian Imperial Union-Order and the party “Great Russia” organised the conference “Did the Tsar abdicate?” More than 120 came to participate in the conference. The participants discussed whether the abdication act of Tsar Nicolas II was a forgery or the Tsar signed the act himself. In discussion arguments pro et contra both versions were announced. Even if the act was signed by the Tsar himself, that act was illegal and had no judicial power. The main idea of the conference was to pay attention that the Tsar didn’t stop to serve to the monarchical idea and didn’t betray Russia and the oath of 1613. Now there are a lot of people in Russia, who remember about the self-sacrifice of the Saint Tsar and are ready to serve to His Legal Heirs, now, the Head of the Russian Imperial House Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna.
