New Communist Party of Britain

We denounce the new attacks against the Communist Party of Ukraine

The undersigned Parties condemn the outrageous and unprecedented attack of the Ukrainian authorities against the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU) and its Leader on 8th May, 2018. The search of the CPU offices followed the violent entry and search of the authorities in the house of the CPU Leader, Petro Simonenko.

It is not by chance that these attacks have taken place on the eve of the 9th of May, the Day of the Antifascist Victory of the Peoples to which the Ukrainians had a significant and heroic contribution.

These developments in Ukraine are the outrageous escalation of continuous intense attacks and persecution of the Ukrainian communists that started right after the coup d’etat over the democratically elected government in 2014 that also led to the rise of neo-nazi and ultra-nationalist groups at all levels of the political and social spectrum of the country.

At this difficult moment, we express our solidarity with the members and leadership of the Communist Party of Ukraine and will use all fora to denounce these acts.
