In celebration and commemoration of the 95th anniversary of the revolution that brought communism to the world stage, elder members of Russia's Communist Party marched on the 7th through Moscow before settling in for a festive meeting together with opposition members from the Left Front movement.

Several thousand mainly elderly members of Russia's Communist Party have marched through Moscow to mark the 95th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution.

The group marched to Revolution Square and held a rally.

Members of the opposition Left Front movement led by activist Sergei Udaltsov joined the rally.

In St. Petersburg, where Bolshevik forces overthrew the provisional government that took power from the monarchy earlier in 1917 and started the revolution, a new monument to Vladimir Lenin was unveiled at a university.
