On the sanctions adopted by the European Union against Venezuela

The PCP strongly condemns the adoption by the European Union (EU) of sanctions against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

The PCP expresses its concern about the instrumentalization of the Catalan question in order to, once again, suppress the just feelings of national identity and reinforce centralist authoritarian positions much to the taste of Spanish big business.
