The Ukrainian secret service SBU has published on its website that it has arrested a man, who allegedly is a member of the underground organization “Revolutionary Communists” . It is Alexander Gerasimov – independent Ukrainian communist. He was arrested on charges of wanting to organize the creation of a communist terrorist group. However, no weapons were found, only communist magazines that are held against him. Spreading “communist propaganda” was banned in Ukraine, since a new law was adopted on April 9th (see publication on the website of the Ukrainian parliament).
The ban also included the Communist Party KPU and the communist organization Borotba. The possession of publications of Borotba motivated the Ukrainian secret service to arrest Alexander Gerasimov.
