Release from the PCP Press Office

On the announcement of a decoration to Zelensky

The announced award of the highest degree of the «Order of Freedom» by the President of the Republic to Zelenski can only be received with outrage by all those who know the value of the struggle for freedom that the Portuguese people waged over decades against the fascist regime. On the eve of the celebrations of the 50th. anniversary of the liberating April Revolution, the award to someone like Volodimir Zelensky, who is known to embody a xenophobic, warmongering and anti-democratic power, surrounded and supported by forces of a fascist and Nazi nature, represents an affront to democrats and a decision contrary to building a path of peace.
