PPP concerned about Ukraine instability

The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has expressed concern about the political instability and tension in Ukraine and expressed the hope that there would be a return to normalcy and constitional rule within the shortest possible time.

A statement from the party said that the situation has resulted in the removal of the democratically elected President and loss of scores of innocent lives in the country.

The PPP issued a call to the parties in Ukraine to settle their political differences by constitutional means rather than resorting to the streets as this could lead to a situation of anarchy and a breakdown of law and order.

The PPP said that “this development bears striking similarity with what is currently taking place in Venezuela where the democratically elected government of President Nicholas Maduro is under siege by opposition forces with the support from outside forces who clearly have their own ideological and political axes to grind.”

It continued, “The PPP is painfully aware of the harmful effects of foreign interference in the country’s domestic affairs particularly during the 1960s when the Party was removed from power as a result of the machinations and intregues of western vested interests in collaboration with local reactionary forces.”
