32 years since the dissolution of the Soviet Union: The Red Flag will rise again

By Nikos Mottas.

It was thirty-two years ago, on December 26, 1991, when the red flag with the sickle and hammer was lowered from the Kremlin.

It was then, during the cold days of December, when the first socialist state of the world, the homeland of the world's proletariat, bent under the weight of the counterrevolution. Four days before, on December 22nd, the leaderships of three of the largest Soviet republics had decided the dissolution of the USSR, while the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) had been outlawed on summer of the same year.

KKE on Mitsotakis-Zelensky joint declaration: Their invocation of international law is hypocritical

In a statement concerning the Joint Declaration signed by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelenskyy in Athens, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) stresses out:

“As much as Mr Mitsotakis hypocritically invokes the “international law”, he can't hide that actual aim of his government, which is the more active and deep involvement of our country in the imperialist war in Ukraine and in NATO plans in the region. Essentially, that is, the ND government feeds those factors that led both to the NATO-Russia conflict in Ukraine, as well as to the aggravation of the problems in the Balkan countries.

In a statement about the recent developments in Russia, with the "rebellion" of Prigozhin's Wagner against the government of Vladimir Putin, the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Communist Youth Union (Bolsheviks) points out:
 
"On June 23, 2023, the owner of the Wagner private military company, Yevgeny Prigozhin, declared a rebellion and moved his troops into the territory of the Russian Federation.

Rabid anti-communist Putin likens Wagner rebellion to the 1917 October Revolution

In his today's statement over the ongoing developments in Russia, President Vladimir Putin went so far as to liken the stance of Wagner private army and its leader Prigozhin with the 1917 Great October Socialist Revolution!

Once again,  President Putin has chosen to make absolutely clear that anti-communism is a key element of the Russian government's policy. 
 
Who forgets Putin's hideously slanderous attacks against Vladimir Lenin and his even more vicious comments against the legacy of Joseph Stalin?

In a statement, the International Committee of the New Communist Party of the Netherlands (Nieuwe Communistische Partij van Nederland - NCPN) points out:

"According to NOS (Dutch state media), part of the bourgeois political top in The Hague has known for a year about the heavy suspicions against the Ukrainian government for blowing up the Nord Stream gas pipeline. The Dutch military intelligence service (MIVD) warned the US intelligence agency (CIA) a year ago that there were plans from Ukraine to blow up the gas pipeline.

On the political economy of contemporary imperialism: The concept of the “imperialist pyramid” and its critics

By Thanasis Spanidis

Summary in short theses: 

1. In the Programmatic Theses of Kommunistische Organisation (KO) we find (in broad outline) a clear orientation for the analysis of imperialism. The theoretical conception developed therein has now been rejected in a number of contributions to the discussion (Klara Bina, Alexander Kiknadze, to a lesser extent Paul Oswald). 

2. The assertion that the imperialist world system is characterized by a “unipolar world order” led by the USA cannot be confirmed by the available data. Both the economic and military balance of power at the top of the imperialist world order refute the picture of singular U.S. domination.

Unacceptable reinforcement of NATO’s presence - Greek forces must withdraw immediately

KKE: On the so-called World Anti-Imperialist Platform and its damaging and disorienting position

Article by the International Relations Section of the CC of the KKE

The outbreak of the imperialist war in Ukraine has sharpened the contradictions within the international communist movement around serious ideological-political issues that have been plaguing it for years and express the opportunist influence in its ranks. Naturally, the focus was on the stance towards the imperialist character of the war that is being waged between the USA-NATO-EU and capitalist Russia on the territory of Ukraine, the stance towards the bourgeoisie and its political representatives such as social democracy, the problematic analyses of the imperialist system and the position of China and Russia, and other issues, more deeply connected with the question of the erroneous strategy of stages towards socialism, of support for and participation in bourgeois governments.
