The Communist Party of the Russian Federation condemns the US-backed military coup against the President of Bolivia.

The Communist Party of the Russian Federation in the strongest possible terms denounces the US-backed right-wing military coup against the democratically elected President of Bolivia, Evo Morales.

Under pretext of fighting for democracy and human rights the USA is trying to restore its dominance in the country.  So called struggle has nothing in common with human rights and democracy as being only focused on looting country’s natural resources as well as on quite evident attempt to remove undesirable politician and bring the country back under control of the US capital. Such actions are absolutely illegal and unacceptable.

We condemn them as well as the acts of vandalism towards the Embassy of Venezuela and anti-Cuban statements.

The CPRF calls on all progressive forces of the world to condemn US subversion in Bolivia and expresses its solidarity with the President Evo Morales and all national forces opposing the coup as well as the Communist Party of Bolivia who are now victims of arrests and persecution.
