For the first time in the history of the European Parliament the floor was given to Ukrainian anti-fascists and communists.
This was stated by the head of department of political research of the post-Soviet space of the Institute of innovative development Aleksey Albu.
“For the first time in the history of the European Parliament, the conflict in Ukraine was considered not one-sidedly, from the position of the Ukrainian authorities, but from the position of those who didn’t accept the coup of 2014, and who to this day still fights against ultra-right extremism in Ukraine,” he wrote on Facebook, specifying that he made a speech in European Parliament at the hearings from the faction of the United Left GUE/NGL (European United Left–Nordic Green Left) of Eleonora Forenza.
According to him, known European politicians and public figures, deputies of Euro Parliament Javier Couso and Tatyana Zhdanok, and other friends of the Ukrainian people who understands the malignancy of the policy of nationalists also took part in the hearings.
The expert reminded the audience that the organizers and performers of mass murder in Odessa are still not punished, that the Ukrainian power doesn’t implement the Minsk Agreements, and still hasn’t liberated any political prisoners, and almost completely occupied the neutral zone.
“Today’s Ukraine is a hotbed of fascism,” stated Albu.
Besides this, he thanked activists from “Banda Bassotti”.
“It is precisely they who from the first days of civil war in Ukraine spread the truth about the atrocities of Ukrainian neo-Nazis, about the bombing of the peaceful cities and settlements of Donbass, about mass murder in Odessa.
It is precisely Banda Bassotti who already for several years organizes anti-fascist caravans, bringing the European politicians and social activists to Donbass so that they see with their own eyes what is happening,” he added.
