D. Koutsoumbas: Statement on the one year since the beginning of NATO-Russia war in Ukraine

On the occasion of the first anniversary of the beginning of the war between NATO and Russia in Ukraine, the General Secretary of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), Dimitris Koutsoumbas, made the following statement (here in Greek):

“After a year of war in Ukraine and the danger of a generalization of the war is more than existing, especially when the conflict between USA and China for the primacy in the imperialist system is clearly projected in the “big picture”. 
Its been a year since the USA and its allies in NATO and the EU and, on the other hand, Russia with her own allies, are resolving their various conflicts on the backs of the two peoples who have lived for decades in peace within the framework of socialism.

Its been a year, however, since other people as well, particularly in Europe, are also paying the continuation and escalation of the war, “bleeding” for the rivalries over the region's wealth, energy resources and transportation routes.

From the very first moment, the KKE raised the alarm among the people and continues to do so, in order to stop Greece's multiform involvement in the imperialist war, to close down all US-NATO bases, so that Greece will stop being a base of war.

At the same time, the New Democracy Government, SYRIZA and PASOK agree with the involvement in the war, with the sanctions on Russia which the Greek people pay for, they applauded all together Zelensky and the Azov Battalion's Nazis in the Parliament. Their criminal responsibilities are an additional reason for the people to turn their backs on them and join the KKE.

Today, a year later, the demand for Greece's disengagement from the war is more necessary than ever, consists a voting criterion and can only be strengthened by a stronger KKE”.
