A few days ago Ukrainian government banned 11 political parties with links to Russia, specifically:
Opposition Platform - For Life, Shariy Party, Nashi, Opposition Bloc, Left Opposition, Union of Left Forces, State, Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, Socialist Party of Ukraine, Socialists Party, and Volodymyr Saldo Bloc (emphasis mine).
Socialist and left-wing parties in Ukraine, for obvious historical reasons, have stronger ties to Russia. What interests me is whether any western socialists or pro-socialist politicians issued clarifying statements in connection to this?
- I am mostly interested in Bernie Sanders and the Squad in the US, as well as the socialist and communist candidates in the nearing French presidential election.
