KKE: The US-NATO stance is provocative; The Greek government stance on the Ukraine crisis aims to blind the people to the facts
The Department of International Relations of the Central Committee of the KKE has issued an announcement on the Ukraine crisis, which states:
«The US-NATO stance is provocative; the Greek government stance on the Ukraine crisis aims to blind the people to the facts
In the last few days, and despite the Minsk Treaty, the US and NATO have continued their intervention in the Ukrainian crisis, threatening the peoples of the region with a further ignition of conflict and bloodshed. More specifically:
- Three hundred US military personnel have arrived at the Lviv base in the Ukraine and have started the training of local troops. Hence, the US is making its military presence in the Ukraine, for which it has already approved 19 million dollars, more intense.
- A major NATO sea force is amassing in the Black Sea, with the participation of American, Canadian, German, Italian, Turkish, Bulgarian and Romanian ships. This is a very worrisome and provocative move.
- There is a strategic, mutli-level NATO training exercise under way, with a focus on "crisis management", the scenario of which effectively mirrors the conflicts between Russia and Ukraine or Russia and Georgia, with its naval dimension spreading over the Black Sea. We note that this training exercise in the decision making centers is taking place while processes for the further reinforcement of the NATO Response Force are under way, increasing this force from the 13,000 it numbers today to 30,000.
At the same time that NATO keeps making its stance in the region more explicit and provocative, the Greek government is trying to reassure and deceive workers with statements on its "multidimensional policy", when it is actively participating in NATO aggressive plans and pledges faith to NATO obligations.
No appeasement! No illusions!
Let us strengthen the struggle against Greek involvement in imperialist plans and imperialist war! Rupture with and disengagement from the wolves' pack!».
