This delegation issued a statement that puts the onus of blame on Kyiv. 
Kyiv should be blamed for its brutal intervention but the primary 
responsibility for the war in Donbas is with Russia that sought to 
militarize the conflict initially.

Assuming that Die Linke is the most prominent member of this coalition, 
it should be noted that Gysi, its leader, characterized the Kyiv 
government as a fascist threat:

same Gysi, btw, that was confronted by Max Blumenthal for his pro-Likud 
politics: http://mondoweiss.net/2014/11/confronted-gregor-gysi.
