KKE’s Koutsoumbas Accuses Government of Its Policy

ATHENS — "The government continues its policy which deteriorates the situation of the working class and the Greek people in general, while at the same time continues to play with their health. It is preparing anti-popular measures, a new memorandum, in essence the measures announced after the loan it took and the new debt that it now burdens the Greek people from the EU Recovery Fund," the secretary general of the Communist party (KKE) Dimitris Koutsoumbas, said on Monday in an interview with public broadcaster ERT1.

"The Greek people will once again pay for this, and of course to the benefit of the great interests," he added.
