MOSCOW, February 25 /TASS/. Moscow has filed a strong protest with the Polish ambassador to Moscow over the desecration of another WWII monument to Soviet soldiers in Poland, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"On the night from February 19 to 20, [vandals] tore off a plaque with an inscription ‘Glory to the Red Army soldiers who fell in battles against fascist occupiers’ from the Gratitude Monument to the Red Army in the town of Slawno," Zakharova said.
"A five-pointed star disappeared from the same monument a year earlier," she added.
The Russian Foreign Ministry issued a strong protest with the Polish ambassador to Russia over the recent act of vandalism on February 25, the Russian diplomat said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry told the Polish diplomat that the Polish authorities continued violating their international legal obligations, including a direct breach of the May 22, 1992 Russian-Polish agreement on friendship and good-neighborly cooperation.
"Under this document, the sides committed themselves to protect any memorials, which people in both countries consider to be objects of respect and memory," Zakharova said.
