The toppling of the memorial to the Red Army servicemen in the Polish city of Leszno is another act of the shameful war against the Soviet monuments, the Spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on February 12.
Criticizing Poland’s moves and its ignoring the Russian-Polish agreements Zakharova said that such a shameful war against monuments “worsens the already immense harm” to the Russian-Polish relations. The Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman noted that Poland is trying to rewrite the history of World War Two and to erase any reference to the Red Army and its contribution to the liberation of Poland.
“The Polish authorities go beyond a civilized country’s standards of behavior,” Zakharova added to her statement about Poland’s insult towards the memory of 600 thousand Red Army servicemen who died liberating this country.
Regarding the same subject, Senator Oleg Morozov said on February 7 that “political scoundrels” are responsible for the toppling of the memorials. He suggested that personal sanctions should be imposed on the politicians and criminal investigations against them initiated in response to these clearly unfriendly actions.
