Russian newspapers and a regional body dedicated articles to the 94th anniversary of the formation of the Down-with-Imperialism Union(DIU).

The Russian paper Komsomolskaya Pravda said in an article titled “DIU and Workers’ Party of Korea” that President Kim Il Sung realized that the independence of Korea could not be gained by relying on the early communist movement and nationalist movement characterized by power struggles, factional strife, sycophancy and dogmatism; and he sought a new path of the struggle and formed the DIU consisting of young revolutionaries sharing the idea and will.

The DIU formation was a historic declaration of new start of the Korean revolution and an epoch-making event marking a radical turning point in the Korean people’s carving out of their destiny, the article added.

The Workers’ Party of Korea built socialism and it has developed socialism, according to the great ideal and goal put forward by the DIU, the article said.

Only victory and glory are in store for the WPK advancing along the road of independence and socialism, chosen by the DIU, the article stressed.
