RIGA, August 10 (Itar-Tass) — A Soviet military memorial near Spirgus, Latvia, has been vandalized, Russian Society in Latvia board member Alexander Rzhavin said on Friday.
He said the word ‘occupants’ was written in red on the other side of the memorial. The public organization will inform about the incident the Russian Embassy in Riga and the local legislature.
Nine hundred and seven Soviet soldiers who died in the WW2 years were buried at the Spirgus cemetery. Their names and ranks were written on 98 memorable stones.
