KIEV, March 19. /TASS/. Unidentified vandals daubed with red paint the 1853 monument to St. Vladimir Duke of Kiev in the center of the Ukrainian capital, an official with Ukraine’s National Memory Institute said.
"It’s hard to understand what is going on the heads of those who wage a war against monuments," said Yelena Khalimon, who posted the photo of the vandalized sculpture on her Facebook page.
Vladimir Duke of Kiev, who brought Eastern Orthodox Christianity to Kievan Rus in 988, is venerated as a saint in both Russia and Ukraine. The monument to him in Kiev is seen as one of Ukrainian capital’s oldest sculptures.
