Ukraine's Young Communist League (LKMSU) accused authorities on Thursday of subjecting several of its student members to trial by a kangaroo court.
Three LKMSU members — one aged just 15 — were convicted of “terrorist” offences on Tuesday. They were arrested for laying flowers to commemorate the Soviet Union’s World War II victory over fascism on May 9, carrying a communist banner and the orange and black St George ribbon — now an anti-fascist symbol.

KSCMWe reproduce a statement issued by the Executive Committee of the Ventral Committee of the Communist Party of Bohemia & Moravia (KSČM):

An announcement by Czech PM Bohuslav Sobotka to intend to declare Czech Republic’s government to resign has verified the KSČM’s opinion from the very beginning of 2017. The coalition government, composed by the Social-Democrats, the ANO movement and the Christian Democrats, in the political flap of mutual accusation of scandalous violation of the laws, will do no positive thing for Czech Republic henceforth. The only solution in the interest of Czech citizens is to advertise a Parliamentary early election.

AKELWe reproduce a statement issued by  AKEL C.C. Spokesperson Stefanos Stefanou on May 4th, 2017, in Nicosia:

The effort to solve the Cyprus problem isn’t being made without any foundations whatsoever and out of nowhere. There are decisions that form the basis and the framework of the solution, which are expressed with clarity in numerous UN resolutions on Cyprus. The basis for the solution of the Cyprus problem is bi-communal, bi-zonal federation with political equality as defined in the relevant UN resolutions which the Greek Cypriot side has accepted since 1977 and has reaffirmed several times.
