PSUV government's offensive against the Communist Party of Venezuela continues

In a statement, the Department of International Politics of the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV) stresses out:

This week, Vice President of the PSUV Diosdado Cabello once again lashed out against the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV), but this time he went a little further, irresponsibly accusing our Party of receiving financing from one of the former PSUV ministers.

The statements made by this high-ranking governing party leader seek to link the PCV with alleged acts of corruption committed by a former minister of Hugo Chávez and Nicolás Maduro’s administrations. They come as part of the plan aimed at forging a false flag that will serve to nationally and internationally justify the intervention and illegalization of the PCV, as well as the violation of the parliamentary immunity of our Deputy and Secretary General Oscar Figuera.
