Vladimir Runov Discourses on May Day Demonstrations

Vladimir Runov Discourses on May Day Demonstrations

Krasnodar, 2 May – Yug Times. “Now there’s no such sincerity and cohesion in the society”

May Day is one of the favourite holidays in Russia, for it marks a string of extended days-off when people can get away from the rush of the modern life and spend time with their friends and relatives. In most cases, this day is associated with BBQ picnics and huge traffic jams of holidaymakers retiring into the country. Vladimir Runov, a well-known author and heavy-hitting journalist, recalls how this day was celebrated some fifty years ago.

“I remember the first May Day demonstration after the Great Victory. We lived in a small town of Kamyshlov, Sverdlovsk region. Everything lay in ruins, people were just beginning to recover [after the war], there was destitution and poverty everywhere… Despite all this, on 1 May all dwellers went to the streets for a festive march. All were smartly dressed, people were smiling and wishing a nice day to one another. It was all by their own will, without any instructions from the authorities.

“Regretfully, the contemporary youth do not know how real demonstrations should look like. I took part in them when I was a schoolboy, a university student – and when I worked as a TV journalist, I was always commissioned to report live from the venues of May Day demonstrations.”
