March 7, 2022 –
In an urgent statement posted in social media accounts the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) points out:
“The First Secretary of our Ukrainian member organisation, the Leninist Communist Youth Union of Ukraine, Mikhail Kononovich, and his brother, Aleksander Kononovich, have been arrested by the Ukrainian neo-fascist regime during the last hours.
They have been accused of being Russian and Belarusian spies. They will be possibly murdered in the following hours.
The World Federation of Democratic Youth calls its member organisations and the whole youth and people worldwide to denounce this situation, to demand their liberty and to protest against the Ukrainian neo-fascist regime to make pressure to detain their murder.”
We urge all comrades and readers to address their local Ukrainian Embassies/Consulates demanding the immediate liberation of Kononovich brothers.
