|Petro Symonenko, First Secretary of the CC of CP of Ukraine.
The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) decisively condemns the provocative and violent raid of the Police Forces of Ukraine in the Office of the 1st Secretary of the CC of the CP of Ukraine, Petro Symonenko, in the Party's premises in Kiev, as well as in his home.
It is an unacceptable action incorporated in the anticommunist campaign, in the orgy of persecution and repression that the reactionary government has unleashed at the expense of the Communists of Ukraine, a government that is supported also by fascist forces and has the full support of the EU, the USA and of NATO. The fact that the raid in the Premises of the CP of Ukraine was organized in the eve of the anniversary of the Great Anti-fascist Victory of the Peoples, of the anniversary of the defeat of Nazism-fascism acts as a further provocation.
Against all those that try to distort History, so that the peoples forget, the younger generations in particular, anti-communism will not pass, the historical truth will shine. Hands-off the Communists of Ukraine.
The delegation of the KKE in the european parliament made an urgent question to the high representative for EU foreign policy Mr Mogherini on the unacceptable and provocative raid of Ukrainian police forces at the office of 1st Secretary of the CP of Ukraine Pierre Simonimenko, at the Party's premises in Kiev, and his home. With the question, the delegation of the KKE in the european parliament calls on the EU High Representative to condemn the specific provocation of the police and the government of Ukraine, a country with which the EU maintains close political, economic and military cooperation.
On the evening of May 8, 2018, the MEP of the KKE, Kostas Papadakis made a phone call to the consul of the Ukrainian Embassy in Athens, N. Kosenko, denouncing the provocative and violent raid in the offices of CP opf Ukraine and also in the home of the First Secretary of the CC of Petro Symonenko. The MEP of the KKE noted the provocative nature of the raid during the eve of the Great Anti-fascist Nation of Peoples, and demanded the immediate cessation of any prosecution against the Communists of Ukraine.
