MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - Russia demands those who are guilty of desecrating the monument to Soviet soldiers in Sofia, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“The incident occurred on August 21. Soldiers’ figures have been messed at one of the monument’s bar-reliefs. This is not the first case in Bulgaria,” Lukashevich said.
“Unfortunately, the country’s officials ignored such incidents. Russia demands efficient measures be taken to prevent sneer at the memory of Soviet soldiers who died for the liberation of Bulgaria from Nazism,” the Russian diplomat said.
