Speaking during an event in Lisbon earlier this month, Maksym Tarkivskyy targeted the PCP over its position in the Russia-Ukraine War, saying that he cannot understand how “a democratic country continues to have a Communist Party”!
In a statement (here in Portuguese) the Portuguese Communist Party condemns the remarks of Tarkivskyy as “statements of fascist hatred” which reveal “the anti-democratic nature of the Kiev government and constitute an intolerable affront to the democratic regime in Portugal”.
The PCP points out that the declarations of the leader of the specific Ukrainian refugee association must not be confused with the whole immigrant community and the Ukrainian refugees with whom the PCP stands in solidarity.
The Communist Party also underlined that such statements are indicative of the total disrespect for democracy and freedom that has long been established in Ukraine and called the democratic and sovereign forces of Portugal to condemn them.
