Selenskyj schleust Rechtsextremisten ins griechische Parlament

Chronologically, the first foul of the day was committed by the Greek Parliamentary Service. Although there was a period of around thirteen days between Mitsotakis' invitation and Zelensky's speech, the parliamentary administration was unable to ensure professional interpretation. So the speech was first translated from Ukrainian into English, and then into Greek.

Even before the special session, two political groups, the Communist Party (KKE) and the Greek Solution Party, had written to Parliament President Konstantinos Tasoulas.

The KKE is also concerned about the ban on the communist party in Ukraine and the fact that two faction members were declared undesirables for traveling to Ukraine and staging rallies there in solidarity with the Ukrainian communists .

On Thursday morning, the Secretary General of the KKE reiterated his criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom he described as a "reactionary imperialist". He emphasized that he and his party stand in solidarity with the resisting people of Ukraine.
