Ukrainian Security Service broke into the Communist Party’s office and the First Secretary Petro Symonenko’s house on the eve of the Victory Day.
The CPU, which has been prohibited under the law since 2016, draws attention to the fact that Nazism and fascism in Ukraine have become a state ideology. The CC of the CPU points out that Nazi collaborators are declared heroes, that celebrations are organized and commemorative medals and stamps are issued in honor of Nazi SS units whereas communists are persecuted and attacked. The CPU asserts that Fascism and Nazism are elevated by the ruling regime to the rank of the state policy and actively fueled by the international capital led by the US, NATO and the EU. The purpose of the provocation is explained by the CPU as “to disrupt the forthcoming ceremonial events, to prevent the mass participation of Ukrainians in commemorative processions and to prevent them from laying flowers on the monuments of the true heroes of our people – the Soviet soldiers-liberators.”
