Prosecutor General of Slovakia Zhilinka called the desecration of the monument to the Red Army extremism
Slovak Prosecutor General Maros Zilinka on his Facebook page (the social network is banned in the Russian Federation; belongs to the Meta corporation, which is recognized as extremist in Russia and banned) said that the desecration of the monument to Soviet soldiers-liberators in the city of Piestany in the west of the country has nothing to do with the expression of solidarity with Ukraine. He called the “correct” definition of this incident – extremism, reports TASS.
“Is not [выражение] solidarity [с Украиной]but a manifestation of extremism. The Liberation Monument is the dominant feature of the square [антигитлеровского] Slovak national uprising. It reminds of the soldiers of the Soviet army who died during the liberation of Piešťany,” he wrote.
According to the Prosecutor General, the actions of a vandal in relation to the monument to the Red Army are unacceptable. He urged not to be limited only to the moral censure of this act, but to bring the culprit to criminal responsibility.
Former Prime Minister of Estonia Kaya Callas stated, which supports the demolition of “Red Army” monuments in the country. According to her, it is necessary to develop a plan to remove these monuments in such a way as not to desecrate the graves of the fallen, if they are there. She added that this issue has been dealt with for several weeks.
