The President stressed that communism has a devastating effect on the prosperity of mankind.

According to the president, on this day the Americans "honor the memory of more than 100 millions of people who were killed or persecuted under totalitarian communist regimes", and also expresses "strong support for those who seek peace, prosperity and freedom in the world."
“After the Bolshevik revolution of 1917, in Russia, we observed the consequences of a tyrannical communist ideology: suffering, repression, and death. Communism subordinates inalienable human rights to imaginary universal good, which leads to the destruction of religious freedom, private property, freedom of speech and - often - human lives, the president’s statement said. “This terrible fate befell the Ukrainians, who were brought to starvation during the Holodomor, and the Russians, who were exterminated during the Great Terror, and the Cambodians who died in the fields of death, and the Berliners who were shot while trying to break free. The victims of these and many other atrocities are tacit evidence of the irrefutable fact that communism and the pursuit of it will always have a devastating effect on the human spirit and the prosperity of humanity. "
“Today we remember all those who were deprived of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness during repressive communist regimes. Today we mourn the unbearable losses that many people had to endure under communism, and again we promise to continue to promote the ideals of freedom and opportunity for all, ”the president concluded.
