 The Communist Party, the Executive, and Ukraine's Approaching Election   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The KPU was fortuitously registered as a party independent of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union only on 22 July 1991, a month before Ukraine declared independence and the KPU was banned.
Ukraine's ethnic and linguistic divisions have prevented the evolution of the KPU into a postcommunist or national communist party (the national communists left in 1990-1991).
This unity of the left was ended in November 2000 by the "Kuchmagate" scandal that opened a wide gulf between the KPU and the Socialist Party, which played a central role in the crisis and remain one of the two wings of the radical anti-Kuchma opposition.

The principal task of the Socialist Workers' Party is to play the part of a buffer between the partisans of socialism and the procapitalist forces, to neutralize and battle all potential enemies of capitalist restoration.
Within the orbit of the party of Roy Medvedev and Denisov were created, lastly, two new "communist" parties that come from the splits in the Marxist Platform within the Communist Party.
For the restorationists, these numerous "Communist Parties" have an essential function: to impede the unity of the healthy forces from the old CP that uphold the principles of Marxism-Leninism and oppose the restoration of capitalism.

 Ernwest Germain: Purge of Soviet Culture (1949)

 EurasiaNet Eurasia Insight - Play President of the (Defunct) Communist Party of the USSR for a Day! Part I
Even before the outbreak of a civil war in 1992, visits by foreigners to Abkhazia were discouraged -- the primary reason being the region was home during the Soviet era to several military and research facilities, including a unique institute where they (allegedly) tested various hideous diseases on monkeys and other primates.
Abkhazia was also known as a part of the Soviet Riviera, a place where the communist elite came to play, either frying hide on the pebble beaches of the Black Sea, plucking fruit from the low-land orchards or meandering through the towering mountains, cut by dozens of blue-ribbon trout streams and roaring rivers.
Happily, the main road is generally safe, the war having been relegated to visual memory to the left and right: scores--nay, hundreds--of partially or wholly burnt out buildings, many of which appear to have been quite pleasant before getting whacked with a GRAD missile or blast of a T-72 tank.
