The chests of Soviet partisans were covered with paint.
Activists are unknown in Kyiv sprinkled with red paint busts of Soviet soldiers, which are installed in Slavy Park in the capital’s Pechersk.
Now the faces of Soviet partisans Sydor Kovpak and Oleksiy Fedorov turned red.
In addition, inscriptions in white paint appeared on the monuments: “executioner”, “occupier”, “chekist”.
In total, four chests were injured: Oleksiy Fedorov, Sydor Kovpak, Pavel Rybalka, Ivan Chernyakhovskyi. On some monuments it is written: “demolish”.
What do the police say?
The Kyiv police reported that they are already investigating who exactly damaged the monuments in the center of the capital.
“The event in Pechersk has been registered. Law enforcement officers are investigating all the circumstances of the incident,” the Kyiv police told the TSN.ua website.
Why was it not dismantled?
Kyivans wonder why these Soviet monuments have not been removed from Slavy Park in the center of the city, because if they had been dismantled in time, no one would have painted over them.
“Objects that have the status of monuments of national importance will be dismantled – from July 15, the law on de-Russification will come into force. Monuments with the status of “status” fall under it, it will be removed from them automatically. After that, they will be able to be dismantled. Those monuments that do not have a status are not dismantled, most likely, due to the lack of haste or sabotage of city officials. They must be dismantled by the forces of the KMDA public works department. The expert council has long since provided its conclusions on the dismantling of these monuments. Next, the order of the KMDA is needed and landscaping can dismantle them. But such an order appeared only for the monument to Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, which stood until now in the center of Kyiv. It was recently dismantled by the forces of “Kyivzelenbud”, – Ksenia Semenova, a deputy of the Kyiv City Council, told the website TSN.ua .
Earlier, the TSN.ua site told how a man had a picnic near the Eternal Flame in Slavy Park in Pechersk, the capital.
