MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The State Duma lower house of parliament is indignant with the desecration of the monument at the common grave site of Soviet warriors in Lvov Region, western Ukraine, and intend to claim for an inquiry in the prosecutor’s office.
“The whole civilized world is smiling at us. We do not keep and do not cherish the memory about our Victory. We are a great Russian nation — the Great Russians, the Little Russians and the Belarusians. We protected the freedom and independence of the Motherland in the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) all together, shed blood on the battlefields together and passed through inhuman hardships and defeated a threatening enemy together,” Klintsevich noted. The deputy noted that “this is our common historical memory and such cases (vandalism) cannot be allowed.”
The Russian union of Afghan war veterans with the support of the State Duma deputies intends to ask Ukrainian partners to investigate the crime and file a lawsuit in the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office over the vandalism case, Klintsevich said.
On Christmas Eve, unidentified vandals have desecrated the monument at the common grave site of 32 Soviet warriors, who perished in World War Two. The crime was committed at the cemetery in the town of Glinyany in Lvov Region.
