The Israeli Communist Party Maki issues a statement calling for Russia to withdraw its troops from Ukraine, but more notably, condemns what it claims to be the “NATO aggression” as playing a role in causing the ongoing Ukraine conflict.

Maki, which is a faction within the joint Jewish-Arab Hadash party, itself a part of the Joint List, is the first slate in the Knesset to condemn the US since the start of the Ukraine invasion.

“Maki condemns the NATO aggression that is serving the warmongering United States,” the party says.

“Anyone who ignores the US provocation through NATO is wrong and misleading. They have placed missiles aimed at Moscow in Lithuania, Latvia, Poland and more.”
