Ukraine Completely Outlawed the Communist Party of Ukraine

Well-known Chinese news site Tencent News recently reported that Ukraine’s Eighth Court of Administrative Appeals completed the hearing of the administrative case on the banning of the Communist Party of Ukraine. The Court issued its final ruling to completely ban the activities of the Communist Party of Ukraine. Property, funds and all other assets of the party and its regional, municipal, district organizations, grassroots organizations and other structural entities will be handed over to the state. Earlier, Ukrainian President Zelensky signed a law to ban pro-Russian political parties in Ukraine. As early as April 9, 2015, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (the “Supreme Council”) passed a bill. The flag, the national anthem, the monument and the image of the leader of the Soviet Union, and the phrase “Great Patriotic War” were all banned in Ukraine. The names and activities of communist leaders and other associated entities are not allowed in trademarks. After this bill was passed, the Ukrainian government immediately instructed the relevant departments to sue the Ukrainian Communist Party in court.
