MOSCOW, September 29 /TASS/. The Polish authorities’ refusal to stop vandalism at Soviet military cemeteries indicates that the Polish leadership has embarked on a path of intentional worsening of bilateral relations with Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"Poland continues its mayhem of vandalism at Russian WWII memorials. A Red Army monument in the Mazovia Province has been desecrated for the second time in the past two months. Another monument to fallen Red Army soldiers, which had recently been renovated by the Polish public organization ‘Kursk’, was defaced anew in the Lower Silesia province," Zakharova noted.
"There is an impression that the authorities in Warsaw are no longer in control of what happens on the ground though in fact it should be understood that everything what’s happening now is taking place largely with the authorities’ consent - the war on monuments and ideologically inconvenient memorial places," the Russian diplomat explained.
"We regard the disregard for our lawful demands to stop a wave of vandalism as a sign that Polish leaders intentionally want to spoil our bilateral relations even further. We demand the restoration of the memorials to their original look; find and punish the culprits and take comprehensive measures to avert such incidents in future," Zakharova concluded.
