WARSAW, March 21. /TASS/. Poland’s biggest cemetery of Soviet soldiers in Warsaw has suffered from vandals who painted 15 red swastika and other Nazi symbols on the steps around the central obelisk, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Poland told TASS on Tuesday.
"According to reports coming from Warsaw residents on March 21, an act of vandalism has been committed at the Soviet Military Cemetery in Warsaw’s Zwirki I Wigury Street. More than 15 Nazi swastikas and red footprints on the backdrop of the Israeli flag were painted on the steps leading to the sculpture and plates around the central obelisk," the spokesman said.
"The Russian ambassador to Poland has referred notes to Poland’s ministry of culture and national heritage and to the foreign ministry demanding the Polish side clear the consequences of the cat of vandalism and punish those responsible for that," the spokesman added.
Founded in 1950, the Soviet Military Cemetery in Warsaw’s Zwirki I Wigury Street is the burial place of about 22,000 Soviet soldiers who died fighting against Nazi Germany. In all, more than 660,000 Soviet soldiers were killed in the Polish territory during World War II.
