Regarding the assassination of the Russian ambassador in Ankara and the deadly attack in Berlin, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued the following statement:
"The KKE condemns the assassination of the Russian ambassador in Ankara, as well as the deadly attack in Berlin.
These actions, regardless the especial objectives of the perpetrators, consist a component of the imperialist war in the 21st century and that applies regardless of the extend to which the activity of such organisations is formed under the support or tolerance of imperialist centers or it is manifested as an element of autonomy of these forces from any powerful centers that strengthened them in the past.
These actions and especially the assassination of the Russian ambassador are taking place in a period when the competitions about the situation in Syria, for the control of natural resources and roads of strategic importance are sharpening; competitions which pose huge dangers for the people.
The people need to organise their struggle, their solidarity, their common activity, against the imperialist plans which diversely utilize these actions."
