Moscow urges Warsaw to find and punish those guilty for vandalizing a monument to Red Army soldiers in the southwestern Polish town of Mikolin, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday, TASS reports.
‘The disgraceful war against Soviet monuments continues in Poland. Unidentified individuals vandalized a monument in the town of Mikolin to our soldiers who died during the Oder Offensive in 1945. The obelisk, which was fully renovated in 2017, was seriously damaged by fire. Presumably, someone tried to blow it up," the ministry said.
"We urge the Polish authorities to refresh in memory their international obligations in the sphere of monuments. We demand that those guilty be found and punished, the monument be restored and measures be taken to prevent such illegal and disrespectful actions in future," it said.
