KKE slams PM Tsipras for visiting Ukraine

With a statement the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) denounces the recent visit of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Ukraine. More specifically, the statement says:

"Prime Minister Al. Tsipras choosed to visit Ukraine in a period when a regime has been imposed in this country through coup actions, with the support of the US, EU, NATO and with the utilization even of fascist groups. 

The visit coincided with the new sharpening (of the situation) in Southeast Ukraine, with the outbreak of a new bloodshed, under the primary responsibility of the current president P.Poroshenko and his reactionary government. He (Tsipras) visited Ukraine when the parody-trial for the prohibition of the Communist Party of Ukraine is in process, when soviet and antifascist monuments are taken down and the collaborators of the nazis are extolled to the youth as "patriots".

No pasarán! We denounce the attempts to ban the Communist Party of Ukraine

Members from the International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties (IMCWP) have released a statement denouncing the attempts to ban the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU). 
The statement points out the invalidity of the trial and underlines the grave responsibilities of the EU, NATO and USA in the process by supporting the ultra-right and fascist forces in Ukraine.

Apart from annihilating the CPU, the Ukrainian authorities attempt to falsify and distort the country's history and turn former Nazi collaborators into heroes, says the statement.

Obama's Legacy of War and Imperialist Crimes

When Barack Obama was elected in 2008, he had been presented by various media as a "peace pigeon", as a man whose "humanitarian spirit" would- supposedly- give an end to the bloody imperialist wars waged by the Bush administration. However, the presidency of Barack Obama proved, once more, the undoubted fact that the U.S. foreign policy isn't based on persons, but on the interests of the plutocracy, the monopoly interests of the United States. 

In his farewell speech in Chicago yesterday, President Obama praised the "values" of the United States which, as he said, "become more powerful when democracy works" and "when ordinary people participate in this". During his presidency, Barack Obama proved what kind of "values" he represents- these "values" are very well known to the people in the Middle East, in northern Africa and Ukraine where his government was involved.

A brief account of- Nobel Prize winner-Obama's foreign policy record is the following:

Fascism in Ukraine: Eurovision Song Contest winner 'Jamala' performed in neo-Nazi gathering

Left: Nazi collaborator and war criminal Stepan
Bandera; Right: Jamala at the 2016 ESC.
Her full name is Susana Jamaladinova, also known as 'Jamala'. She was the controversial winner of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. According to news reports, Jamala performed in a Neo-Nazi youth music festival called "Banderstadt" in Lutsk, Ukraine. The festival, which took place from 5th to 7th August honors the notorious Ukrainian fascist, war criminal and Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera. 

Jamala had triumphed in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest with a much controversial, politically motivated and certainly anti-communist, song called "1944" which had as a main theme the deportation of Crimean Tatars by Stalin. Of course, the song was by itself a distortion of history: Crimea's Tatars were deported because they were Nazi collaborators

An unholy alliance of leftists supporting a pro-NATO course against RussiaBy Susann Witt-Stahl and Denis Kovalpublished in German in Junge Welt, June 25, 2016.

The Die Linke (Left Party)-affiliated Rosa Luxemburg Foundation wants to play it safe. It relies not on historical pro-Soviet or Marxist left traditions but instead promotes a “new left”. The foundation is named after a world-renowned icon of anti-capitalist movements whose identity is bound with communist and anti-imperialist ideas. But the members of the Foundation’s leadership recommend to the left a convergence with the ‘liberal imperialism’ of the global hegemon, the USA.

Understandably, this requires some political flexibility. Progressive forces should not plant themselves on one side or the other of competing imperialist powers, says the Facebook page Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung Ukraine. It demands that the “independent left” distance itself from the NATO-EU bloc, on the one hand, and from Russia on the other hand.

Russian Communist Workers' Party (RCWP): Condemnation of anti-communism at Donetsk

Source: International Communist Press, 24th May 2016.
The Russian Communist Workers' Party (RCWP) denounced the decision disqualifying the two communist deputies in the legislative organ of the self proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), the People's Soviet.
The Russian Communist Workers' Party (RCWP) released a statement on the decision that took the powers of two communist deputies in the legislative organ of the self proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), the People's Soviet. The RCWP stated that the decision of Donetsk People's Republic authorities which disqualifies communist deputies in the People's Soviet has no difference than the Kiev regime's anti-communist laws and attacks. In the statement, the RCWP underlined that with this decision the DPR authorities try to prevent communists from participating in the People's Soviet elections in the first place.

The decision is compared with the Ukrainian President Poroshenko's anti-communist steps such as banning the communist party and adopting de-communization laws. The RCWP stated that the attack against communists of DPR only justifies Poroshenko's claims about Donetsk being under the jurisdiction of Kiev and next step would be demolishing the Lenin monuments in DPR cities.

The Communist Party of Ukraine expresses its strong protest against desecration of Soviet monuments

Communist Party of Ukraine, War Against Monuments.

The Communist Party of Ukraine notes that in a number of settlements of our country radical criminal nationalists, encouraged by the ruling Nationalistic-oligarchic regime that came to power after the unconstitutional coup in February 2014, started a war against monuments to a Soviet Soldiers, Partisans and Underground Fighters killed during World War II. 

This is contrary to the UN resolutions that condemn desecration of monuments to the fighters against fascism, contrary to the Convention for the Protection of the Architectural Heritage of Europe, signed by most European countries, it is ignoring the dominant public opinion, attitudes of our citizens.
