MEPs of the KKE reject EU Parliament resolution that labels Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism”

Cunning Euroatlantic supporters

Supporting the further escalation of the imperialist conflict in Ukraine,  on 23 November 2022 the European Parliament adopted a resolution characterizing Russia as a “state sponsor of terrorism”. Putting forward the well-known “anti-terrorist” pretexts that have been utilized for imperialist interventions around the globe, the European Parliament, in continuation of previous resolutions-warmongering frenzy, attempts to “whitewash” the role of the Euroatlantic bloc in the imperialist conflict in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. It paves the way for further involvement of the EU in the war as well as for new sanctions that add fuel to the fire.
