Communist Party of Turkey: "Socialism and not Russian nationalism is the antidote to NATO expansionism"
"Imperialism is an order of destruction and war. For every bourgeois government that tries to get an upper hand for itself in this rotten order and to expand its sphere of influence, it also means that it aims at the oppression of other peoples. The crutches of expansionist policies are nationalism, racism, and chauvinism. This is the meaning of Putin’s statements made yesterday on the recognition of the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics.
KKE: On the recognition of the so-called "People's Republics" of Donbass by Russia
"The decision of the Russian Federation to proceed to the recognition of the so-called “People's Republics” of Donetsk and Luhansk which seceded from Ukraine in 2014, in the Donbass region, is another step that complicates even further the situation in the region and leads to the escalation of imperialist competitions, in the context of the confrontation of the US, NATO and EU with Russia.

Communist Party of Canada on "Freedom Convoy": A far-right, dangerous movement for the working class
Communist Party of Canada views the “Freedom Convoy” as a public expression of the increasingly organized and assertive far right. The clear links between the organizers of the convoy and far-right networks indicate that this is not a spontaneous working-class demonstration.

Communist Parties' participation in bourgeois governments is a deeply erroneous strategy
Every time a Communist Party compromised the aim of workers' power in order to participate (or support) a “progressive”, “left-wing”, “anti-capitalist”, “anti-fascist” etc, bourgeois government the results were utterly disappointing, leading to ideological degeneration and disintegration of the workers-popular movement.
A few days ago, the Portuguese Communist Party (PCP), a party with significant history, paid the price of its participation in the “progressive” government of the Socialists, by receiving a rather disappointing 4.4% and four seats in the legislative elections. This result marks an almost 2% loss compared to the 2019 election.
