Statement of the Press Office of the CC of the KKE on the unacceptable anticommunist decision of the Ukrainian Parliament

The KKE most categorically denounces the unacceptable decision of the Ukrainian Parliament to identify communism with fascism and to ban the activity of communists and the dissemination of communist ideas, at the same time historically justifying the local fascists, the so-called “Ukrainian Liberation Army”.

The current Ukrainian Parliament, as is very well known, emerged from elections that were held in conditions of violence, electoral fraud and civil war. This situation held sway due to the blatant intervention of the USA and EU in Ukraine, in the framework of their competition with Russia.


Student Festivals of KNE

Over the next few days, in the first half of April, the Student Festivals of KNE will take place throughout Greece and for the third consecutive year they will be embraced with great success by numerous students from all over the country.

KNE, addresses all students who care and are struggling for the school and the life that they deserve and are at the same time deprived of. Our right to education and life with dignity does not fit within the limits of the current rotten capitalist system, which provides young people only with poverty, unemployment, ignorance.

The government is constantly retreating and claims that it is “maneuvering” because, according to the words of the Prime minister, A. Tsipras, “They had set us a trap in the battle of Europe (…) with aim of the financial suffocation and the government's overthrow(…)They had everything set up to shipwreck us ... and the country.”


However, at the same time, the Finance Minister, Y. Varoufakis, clarified that the maneuvers and retreats of the Greek government also had some “red lines”, which the Greek government does not intend to cross. It is of interest to examine what these are:
