In March, the ruling regime in Ukraine banned proliferation and began to withdraw from the libraries book “Application for suicide. Why Ukraine needs NATO?”, published back in 2009, one of the authors of which was the leader of the Communist Party of Ukraine Petro Symonenko.
In April 2018 the Security Service of Ukraine conducted illegal searches in the premises of the Zhytomyr Regional Committee of the Communist Party and seized “terrorist” (according to the SBU) documents: greeting cards with the International Workers’ Day and May 9 – Victory Day.
May 1, 2018, police in Kiev detained a group of Communists who were distributing an absolutely legal “Workers’ Newspaper”, illuminating the situation of the working man under the rule of the oligarchic bourgeoisie and the regime of the pro-fascist dictatorship. The reason for the detention of activists of the CPU was the publication of a portrait of Petro Symonenko in the pages of the Workers’ Newspaper, his address to the workers of Ukraine on the occasion of May Day and the May Day slogans of the Central Committee of the Communist Party.
Earlier, on April 26, 2018, neo-Nazis from C14, who are under the protectirate of the Security Service, beat the head of the Ukrainian Union of Orthodox Brothers, cardiologist Valentin Lukiyanik. The police got to the call for an hour, but when they arrived, they took no action to detain the militants, although all those who beat Lukyanik stayed at the crime scene.
The Communist Party once again draws attention of the communist and workers’ parties to the need to jointly resist the offensive of the oligarchic-nazi regime of Ukraine for the rights and freedoms of the working people.
