The article deals with the analysis of agitation texts of the Communist party of the Russian Federation (CPRF). This left party has a great history. In terms of agitation, the CPRF has an advantage over the other Russian political parties because it uses the soviet publicistic arsenal in the struggle for red ideals.

The author studies red slogans and appeals that motivate to struggle. The red party sees the present government and its ministers as the main opponents. It also rejects all the destructive political systems. Throughout the century, communists have been struggling against their constant enemies: Nazism, capitalism, liberalism and anti-Sovietism.

V.I. Lenin and I.V. Stalin are the unchanged leaders and role models for all communists. Modern leaders encourage people to develop Lenin and Stalin`s ideas. With the help of the CPRF, some cities have statutes of Stalin and Lenin. Today the soviet appeals have one more name in their structure. Communists add G.A. Zyuganov to the list of red leaders of Russia. For example, Lenin! Stalin! Zyuganov! Victory!

The publicistic activity of the CPRF is a very important fi eld in the party`s work. However, not all the agitation texts can be called brand new. Anyway, there are some interesting ones – We are ready for the country makeover! November 7, protect the past and fi ght for the future! Red Moscow – the CPRF! The CPRF has the plan and the resource to change the mafi a course!

Today the CPRF is the most active and initiative party that looks for new propaganda ways and tries to increase its slogan arsenal.
