The ECI collapsed due to infighting over KKE's revisionism.A teleconference of the Full Plenum of the parties of the European Communist Initiative (ECI) was held on 9/9/2023 to discuss the problematic situation that has recently developed in the ECI after the outbreak of the imperialist war in Ukraine.
During the teleconference, many contributions positively evaluated the activity of the ECI for the period 2013–2022, its contribution to the coordination of the communist parties in Europe and the joint study and elaboration of European and important international issues aimed at strengthening the struggle against the capitalist system, the EU, the bourgeois classes and their governments.
At the same time, during the teleconference, the important ideological and political differences that have arisen over time and which have been aggravated since the outbreak of the war being waged between the USA-NATO-EU and capitalist Russia, which creates insurmountable obstacles for the continuation of the ECI, were assessed.
Based on the above, it was decided that the activity and function of the ECI be concluded. We are sure that life itself and the development of the class struggle in many European countries throughout the European continent will make it necessary in the coming period to establish a new form of inter-party cooperation between the Communist and Workers’ Parties of Europe, which will make use of the useful experience gained in recent years from the activity of the ECI.

Koutsoumbas, General Secretary the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece, had his interview with “Mega” in front of the Headquarter of its party, equating the Russia’s anti-Nato anti-fascist Special Military Operation on Ukraine in 2022 with the Nato’s attack on Yugoslavia in 1999.
In response to World Anti-imperialist Platform the KKE gathered communist parties towing their revisionist line.
But due to recent infighting even those revisionist parties have given up on the ECI
