Statement from the International Area of PCPE on the fascist crimes in Ukraine

The Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE), aware of the sad events that took place on May 2nd in the city of Odessa, expresses its strongest condemnation to the infamous attack staged by the Nazi-fascist squads and conveys its heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the more than forty martyrs of the House of Unions of Odessa, many of them communist militants and members of popular organizations.


We denounce that the criminal Junta that now governs Ukraine, under the protection of European and US monopolies, conducts a brutal campaign of harassment against the popular organizations in the country, making use of the Armed Forces and the National Guard militia formed by members of fascist squads represented by the organizations "Pravi Sektor" and "Svoboda". Proof of this is the new slaughter in Odessa, but also the harsh repression in cities like Slaviansk, Donbass or Kharkov, where the heroic popular resistance has slowed the offensive of the forces from Kiev, who intends to subject the whole country under the yoke of the reactionary and predatory European imperialist alliance and the U.S., regardless of the number of victims being necessary.


Furthermore, we note the role played by all those who welcomed the movement emerged in the Maidan square as a democratic and popular revolt, who obviated the imperialist interests operating in that movement and which have resulted in the rise of fascism and the murders now occurring.


The Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE) calls upon the exercise of the broadest solidarity with the working people of Ukraine and especially with the Ukrainian communists. The consistent struggle against the Nazi-fascist threat can only be achieved in view of the revolutionary rupture with the capitalism that generates it and the imperialist powers and alliances that promote and sustain it.

Fascism will not pass!
