DPR: German Communist Party Protests Berlin ‘Ban’ on Soviet Red Flag! (24.5.2022)

The German Communist Party is suing the Berlin Authorities on their decision to ban on the Soviet flag on the 8th and 9th May 2022. Below is the text of the GKU statement:

The Soviet Red Army ‘Liberated’ the German People from Hitlerism!

“By a General Order, the Berlin Courts instructed the Berlin Police to forbid, in particular, the displaying, carrying or hanging of the Red Flag (of the Soviet Union and the Red Army) in public, on buildings and on or near Memorials dedicated to Liberation of the German people from War and Fascism! Therefore, this decision entailed the deliberate desecration of the May 8th (Liberation Day) and May 9th (Victory Day) Commemorations – and the Remembrance of the sacrifices that led to the end of War and Fascism!. The GKP filed an urgent Appeal against this obvious attack upon the International Working-Class – but this Appeal was ‘Denied’ when heard by the Administrative Court of Berlin and the Higher Administrative Court. The reasons given for these decisions were purely arbitrary and outrageous! The Berlin Authorities declared the Soviet Red Flag (which carries a ‘Hammer and Sickle’) to be a ‘fascist’ symbol (but would not permit a ‘discussion’ as to WHY they thought this) – and declared the Soviet Red Army as being a vehicle for tyranny, oppression and persecution (no discussion was allowed explaining the Red Army ‘Liberation’ of the Nazi German Death Camps)! As the ‘modern’ Russian Army still carries this Red Flag – the Berlin Courts Ruled – this flag can no longer be carried (or displayed) ‘legally’ in public!

During the Sixteen Days the Battle for Berlin Raged (April 16th – May 2nd, 1945) the Soviet Army Sustained 350,000 Casualties!

Thus, the GKP made a correct statement when it pointed-out that if the Soviet Union Red Army still existed – there would be no war in Ukraine! The Berlin Authorities chose to acknowledge this statement as being an expression of support for Russian aggression – the spread of Russian political control – and ultimately as an “approval of an aggressive war” in Ukraine! The GKP, therefore, does not recognize either the desecration of the Memorial Days or the corrupt Court decisions! The GKP will also continue to fight legally. The Soviet Union and the Red Army played the greatest (pivotal) role in the liberation of the world from war and fascism – that is why we say today, tomorrow and for all time: “THANK YOU!” Soviet Red Army soldiers. The unacceptable Prohibitions of the General Order of the Berlin Courts and Police must be lifted! The GKP has set up a fund to cover legal costs and is asking for Solidarity!”

Soviet Red Army Soldiers ‘Liberate’ One of the Compact Guillotines Used to Murder Hundreds of Thousands of German Citizens Condemned to Death by the Nazi German (Berlin) Courts!

Германская коммунистическая партия подает в суд на запрет советского флага


Германская коммунистическая партия подает в суд на запрет советского флага, введенный берлинской полицией 8 и 9 мая 2022 года.

Ниже приводим текст заявления ГКП:

«Общим распоряжением берлинская полиция запретила, в частности, вывешивать флаг Советского Союза и Красной Армии на мемориалах, посвященных освобождению от войны и фашизма. Таким образом, это повлекло осквернение 8 мая (День освобождения) и 9 мая (День победы над войной и фашизмом). ГКП подала срочную апелляцию против этого скандала, но потерпела неудачу в Административном суде Берлина и Высшем административном суде. Причины, указанные для вынесения соответствующих решений, вызывают возмущение. Так, справедливое утверждение ГКП о том, что при существовании Советского Союза и существовании Советской Армии не было бы войны в Украине, преподносится как поддержка агрессивных, великодержавных российских устремлений и в конечном итоге как «одобрение агрессивной войны».

ГКП не признает ни осквернения памятных дней, ни этих судебных решений. Она также будет продолжать вести юридическую борьбу. Советский Союз и Красная Армия сыграли самую большую роль в освобождении от войны и фашизма, мы говорим сегодня и завтра: спасибо вам, советские солдаты. Неприемлемые запреты общего распоряжения берлинской полиции должны быть отменены. ГКП создала фонд для покрытия судебных издержек и просит о солидарности».

  1. It is the ‘Berlin Courts’ which possess the historically dubious record on Human Rights and War Crimes! It is these German entities (and not the Soviet Union or modern Russia) that possess the chequered history!
