Pyongyang, February 26 (KCNA) -- Russian papers carried special write-ups from Feb. 8 to 19 to mark the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il. The write-ups were illustrated with portraits of smiling Kim Jong Il, photos showing his revolutionary activities and photos of Marshal Kim Jong Un.

Pri Armurskiye Wedomostsi in an article titled "Exploits performed for the cause of socialism" noted:

The greatest exploit performed by Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK Kim Jong Il was that he protected the destiny of socialism.

The next one was that he ushered in an era of new surge in the cause of socialism.

He energetically led the Korean people's struggle to build a thriving socialist nation, smashing the imperialists' moves against the DPRK.

The exploits he performed for the cause of socialism have been further glorified by Kim Jong Un.

Khabarovski Express in an article titled "Great brilliant commander of Songun" said:

Kim Jong Il started his Songun revolutionary leadership by inspecting the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People's Army on Aug. 25, 1960.

The world progressive mankind was greatly impressed by his matchless pluck and guts as a peerlessly brilliant commander.

The DPRK which has won a victory after another under the uplifted banner of Songun has greatly encouraged the world progressives and powerfully promoted the cause of global independence.

Komsomolskaya Pravda in such articles as "Birth in Mt. Paektu" and "Impregnable fortress" praised the peerlessly great man for his glorious revolutionary career and undying exploits.
