KKE Leader Condemns Greece’s Involvement in the Russia-Ukraine War

ATHENS – The absence of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) from parliament during the address by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was “the most honest and clear position,” KKE General Secretary Dimitris Koutsoumbas asserted on Thursday, speaking on ANT1 television.

He said that KKE MPs could not applaud a leader who had outlawed the Communist Party in Ukraine, along with another 11 parties, and declared a Greek KKE MP undesirable for supporting Ukrainian communists.

Koutsoumbas made it clear, however, that the KKE “condemned the Russian invasion from the first moment” and considers “Putin to be in the opposing camp for us.”

Commenting on the expulsion of Russian diplomats, he said it was a “NATO choice, a NATO line, for EU countries, one after the other, to expel diplomats,” adding that this was the “modern Cold War”. He noted, however, that this would not solve the problems but instead lead to retaliation from Russia.

According to Koutsoumbas, Greece’s involvement in the war in Ukraine “was not help for the Ukrainian people” and made it a target for reprisals.

He also noted that “solutions and a way out from the problems facing the people and working class incomes were not found in the things proposed by the government, SYRIZA and the other bourgeois parties.”
