Hands off the Communist Party of Ukraine!

20th International meeting of Communist and Workers Parties
joint statement 

The Parties -- members of the XX International Meeting of Communist and Workers' Parties express its support to the Communist Party of Ukraine and demands that the Ukrainian authorities immediately stop persecution and terror against Party members, stop persecution of dissent, falsification of history and glorification of Nazi collaborators from the OUN-UPA, divisions and battalions of the Wehrmacht and the SS.
After the armed coup d'état in 2014 fabricated criminal cases were lodged against the Communist Party and the Communists of Ukraine, the Party was excluded from participation at the elections and is subject to a court trial aimed to ban it.
For almost five years searches of the offices of the Communist Party, attacks on its members and supporters are ongoing only because of the oppositional position of the CPU against the power.
The parties-members of the XX International Meeting of Communist and Workers' Parties call on the Communist and workers' parties of the world to urge national governments and parliaments to stop supporting the Nazi militarists of Ukraine,to push the ruling regime of Ukraine to stop the conflict in the East of Ukraine,to stop police and gang violence against Communists and dissidents and glorification of Nazi collaborators.
