Dear comrades! Dear friends! First of all, I would like to thank all communist and left-wing forces for the support you have given and continue to give for Ukrainian people, and especially for the Communist Party of Ukraine. In this difficult time, not giving up, workingin difficult conditions, tens of thousands of Communists continue to defend our common ideals and interests of the people. And we need of support and solidarity from the world communist, workers and left-wing movement. Before the tragic events that took place on 20-22 February 2014, when during clashes in Kiev, killed many of our fellow citizens, we have repeatedly informed you of our position. We have emphasized the oppressive role of foreign intervention in the affairs of Ukraine, the need to organize a broad dialogue between all political forces in Ukraine to stabilize the tense situation, the creation of an independent national supervisory authority of control over the power of the nation-wide referendum on a national scale to determine the legal and legitimate Ukrainian people their fate as well as the mandatory introduction of the institute election of judges, and political reform to decentralize state power in Ukraine.
However, our calls were not heeded neither the then President Yanukovych, nor the leaders of the then opposition, as a result of Ukraine was on the brink of social, public and social divisions, the actual anarchy and anarchy. The most tragic in the current situation in Ukraine is almost complete absence of government regulation and legal order in the country, which is a consequence of demoralization entire law enforcement system in Ukraine. At this time, ensure law and order according to the law no one actually. In this situation in Ukraine vengeance gaining strength armed nationalist, ultra-right and radical movement, which, in fact, on behalf of the winners of the Revolution, the seizure may hold property of citizens, violence, intimidation. And the situation is actually out of control and the current leaders of the law enforcement system, which consist of yesterday’s opposition, at best, have no data on armed groups to no effect, and at worst are themselves silent partners that reigns in Ukraine lawlessness.
Activists of the Communist Party of Ukraine, in this case come under attack in the first place, as well-known long time dream of Ukrainian Nationalists and Western superpowers to fully suppress the communist movement in Ukraine. Against the Communists of Ukraine in conditions completely destroyed the legal system is used blackmail, intimidation, beatings, illegally seized property, party media – that is, the conditions for complete paralysis of activity of the Communist Party of Ukraine. The clearest example of this is the confiscation of “revolutionaries” in his favor of the central office of the Communist Party of Ukraine in Kiev, which is owned by the Communist Party, as well as property and personal belongings of employees who worked in the building. The huge number of our regional offices have also been attacked, many of which were looted and burned. In Ukraine, the complete anarchy, by nationalist groups were destroyed hundreds of Soviet-era monuments, prominent figures of the history of Ukraine, World War II monuments, etc.
Unfortunately, all of these tragic events are the result of self-destructive policies of many political forces in the struggle for power completely ignore the notion of compromise and dialogue with his opponents than actively using sweeping motion that under the guise of ” opposition ” slogans, now have the right to create lawlessness. However, in this difficult time testing the Communist Party of Ukraine and further protects the interests of the common people, fighting for the implementation of program objectives, establishes the work of our active and seeks to lay the foundation for the revival and the growing influence of the Communist Party throughout Ukraine. We continue to defend the interests of the Ukrainian people in the preservation of territorial integrity, which calls for the widest possible dialogue between all political forces. Communist Party of Ukraine believes that federalization and increase the powers of regions of Ukraine will be able to preserve the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and create the conditions for a return to peace, harmony and understanding between the citizens of Ukraine in the entire country. Communist Party of Ukraine calls on all communist, workers and leftist movements asking us to continue to provide full support and cooperation in the difficult struggle for our common principles and objectives. On behalf of thousands of our activists, thank you in advance. Sincerely, The First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine Petro Symonenko
