Act of vandalism against the monument to Soviet soldiers in Vienna

23
In the Austrian capital, an incident occurred that was more characteristic of the countries of Eastern Europe - for example, Poland. In the center of Vienna, vandals desecrated a monument to Soviet soldiers. The facade of the monument on Schwarzenbergerplatz square was filled with red paint.


Acts of vandalism against Soviet monuments in Austria, in contrast to the already mentioned Poland, is a rather rare phenomenon. Moreover, the Austrian authorities every time try to resist the vandals and initiate criminal and administrative cases against them. However, cases of vandalism and in a completely civilized Austria still happen.

From the statement of the Russian diplomatic department in Austria:
In view of the previous and similar acts of vandalism, we urge the Austrian authorities to take comprehensive measures to ensure proper protection of the memorial.


Act of vandalism against the monument to Soviet soldiers in Vienna


In the Austrian segment of social networks, statements are published indicating that acts of vandalism against monuments to Soviet soldiers began to manifest themselves from 2015. It has been suggested that it may not be about local residents, but about visitors from the territory of Poland or Ukraine.

The Vienna police announced measures taken to protect the memorial in the center of the Austrian capital.

      And why did you get that only the Poles or Ukrainians could do it. Now there are vandals in the entire geyrop.
      Do not throw off the shields of the Austrians themselves. Just people began to forget what war is!
      And to whom you need to say thank you, for your freedom and independence!

          Yes, we also break monuments. Pour paint. This is a catch by the ears. Russophobia does not need to be seen everywhere. And then the mirror will start to interfere. hi

        I myself was not, I don’t know, but according to the stories, the Austrians treat the graves of our soldiers very well and respect their memory with respect ... The same is inclined to believe that they are Ukrainians or Polish marginals!

        Yes, it’s unlikely that we haven’t been in Austria for so long, although maybe the grandchildren of some of the soldaten’s threads that remained on the fields of Russia .... but I am more inclined to the version about visitors.

    Give Svidomity Holy visa-free - they are not only Soviet monuments to you - the whole country will be dirtied. Or do you seriously believe that they are climbing into Europe to bring benefits?

    It has been suggested that this may not be about local residents, but about visitors from the territory of Poland or Ukraine.

    And this assumption is most likely the most real. The Austrians are still more adequate in relation to the memory and monuments, unlike the Poles and Ukrainians.

    What can we say about Austria, if in Russia and in other countries of the former USSR, monuments of the Soviet period are desecrated. So that they are not desecrated, you must first learn to respect your history, your fathers and grandfathers, who defended and protected the country. Until we learn to respect our history ourselves, no one will respect us. And youth in this spirit must be educated if we want to have our own future.

    Not the fact how many Ukrainians died in Vienna. My grandfather’s brother took Vienna. He went to war at the age of 17, a mortar man, 4 orders of Glory (he himself did not know by chance on May 9 he read in a local newspaper). After the war, he served in Austria for several years (as a young man they did not demobilize). He is Ukrainian by nationality. But morons everywhere are missing, as if we don’t have them, and desecrating and demolishing monuments, but how many abandoned ..

      A gram of Ukrainian blood flows in me, so it periodically draws to fat and a vodka ... laughing

      Everything can be! Nobody canceled the presumption of innocence, but personally it seems to me that this is exactly the Ukrainians or the Poles do! hi

    "It has been suggested that it may not be about local residents, but about visitors from the territory of Poland or Ukraine"...

    Well, that was the first thing that occurred to me ...
    By the way, Ukrainians-Natsiks will soon cause Europeans only negative associations with their Nazi recklessness ... And the Poles may soon get bored with their Russophobia ... Not only the Austrians ...

    In my opinion, too, the monuments are not protected because the locals do not touch.

    That's for sure. Vienna does not remember, the Alps do not remember, and the Danube !!!!!

      Why should they remember something? They hit Hitler with the Anschluss flowers. With the exception of the Jewish question, it was a thriving Reich province. The question of physical extermination has never been for them, therefore, the value of Soviet liberation for the Austrians is not so high.

    It’s very easy for Euro-traders to fight with fallen warriors! But history does not tolerate a free attitude towards itself and will certainly take cruel revenge, if not the scum themselves, then their descendants, unambiguously! (So ​​that later they would not ask: "And what about us"?)
