For a 4th year in a row, there has been a savage war waged in the region of Donbass. It ha claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people, with almost 24,000 wounded, and about 2 million were forced to leave their homes. Hundreds of children have been killed and injured. The blood of the inhabitants of Donbass is on the hands of the Kiev regime, which unleashed military aggression in response to the declaration of independence and self-determination of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.
On April 14th, 2014, Kiev officially announced the beginning of the so-called anti-terrorist operation in the Donbass region. With the help of fighter aircraft and heavy artillery, the Ukrainian military began to level to the ground the peaceful cities and villages. Almost 40,000 buildings were destroyed in the territory of the People’s Republic of Donetsk and the People’s Republic of Lugansk. Among the areas deliberately targeted, there are no military facilities, but only schools, hospitals and houses.
The adoption of the law upon the forcible ‘Reintegration’ of the Donbass region by the Ukrainian Parliament, coupled with the continuing supply of lethal weapons from the EU and the US to ‘Maidan’ Ukraine, indicate that world imperialism is interested in continuing the military conflict. Our answer must be Proletarian Internationalism. We call on all fraternal parties and organizations to join the initiative of the Communist Party of the DPR, and go out to protest and hold pickets in their respective countries in front of the Ukrainian Embassy on April 14, 2018.
We Say NO to War in Donbass!
We Say YES to the Independence and Self-determination of the DPR and LPR!
