In European countries, including Poland, the number of cases of vandalism in relation to Soviet military burials has decreased, RIA News the message of the head of the Ministry of Defense of Russia to perpetuate the memory of those killed in the defense of the Fatherland, Major General Vladimir Popov.


The number of cases of desecration of the graves of Soviet soldiers in Europe has decreased


According to the information, almost 12 thousand war graves of the period of the Great Patriotic War are located on the territory of foreign countries: on the territory of the CIS countries - 6,4 thousand, far abroad countries - 5,6 thousand. Over 4 million of Soviet soldiers are buried in them, more than 3 million of them - unknowns.

The issue of acts of vandalism in relation to Russian graves remains problematic today.

“Nevertheless, despite the heightening of anti-Russian sentiment, in European countries where representative offices function, this negative process was slowed down in 2016. So, in 2015, the 53 vandalism was committed, in 2016, 26. In the first half of 2017, the total number of cases of vandalism against Russian military memorials also decreased by 20% (on July 1 2016 of the year - 10, July 1 of 2017 of the year - 8), ”Popova’s article published in“ Military historical journal.

In the 2017 year, even in Poland, the number of cases of vandalism decreased by more than a third (2016 in the first half of the year, 8, in the same period, 2017 of the year - 5)
noted the general.

According to him, “in five of the eight countries of the Russian Defense Ministry missions, vandalism was not recorded at all in 2016, in Slovakia, the consequences of a single violation in relation to the Russian military memorial were eliminated in a matter of days, the official apologies were made to the Russian side.”

On all the facts of vandalism, the Russian embassies sent official notes to the state and public bodies of the respective countries.

“The consequences are promptly eliminated by local authorities, with the exception of cases of demolition of five monuments installed outside of burial sites in Poland. This attitude of the Warsaw authorities is all the more alarming, ”the article says.

      And on the topic, there’s nothing to say?
      The number of desecration cases has decreased because the monuments themselves have become smaller! In Poland, so soon there will be nothing to desecrate at all am

                        14.37. Wend! The Bolsheviks did not apply scorched earth tactics. And they saved a lot. Churches say a lot were demolished. But then there were little merchants today, and they all traded Faith. But many churches have survived and are standing now. The cities are preserved. Factories remained and new ones were built. Schools and hospitals were not closed. And the tsarist symbolism began to be demolished even before the Bolsheviks. So do not here about the devastation brought by the Bolsheviks. Even on Red Square stands St. Basil's Cathedral. Why didn’t they demolish it if they demolished everything? Cathedral in front of an atheist government! How did it get along? The Russian Orthodox Church today Isaky presses.

        And on the topic, there’s nothing to say?

        On the topic ... is it worth wondering that in Poland and other current US satellites the monuments to the Soviet soldier are broken?
        If in our country, from the central TV channels, on the radio and on the Internet, muddy streams of mud are pouring onto the history of the USSR, including through the Great Patriotic War, why should you blame the mirror if the physics are crooked?
        Is it worth it to blame Russophobia for some residents of Ukraine, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia who are distraught with propaganda if we look in the mirror, because there, in the rank of state policy, the rejection of the Soviet legacy is introduced, is it not the same with us?
        We shout, oh, they shattered. They demolished, AND WHO IS GUILTY of breaking everything there?
        If we break it inside, if we ourselves doubt the achievements of our country, inside ourselves, then what do we want to ask from these Poles?
        The older generation there remembers to whom it is obliged .. young people. Like us, duped by propaganda, they do not understand and do not remember what war is and what the role of the USSR is in liberating Poland from the Nazis.
        I watched a meeting of some council under the President, where the chairmen sit the patented Russophobe and anti-adviser Fedotov, there Alekseeva, Svanidze and other non-shaking individuals and you understand. You should not be surprised at what is happening in Europe ...

    Putin’s exit to the so-called “Wailing Wall” marked that they would carry out desovetization until the end, until the memory of the USSR was erased. And the words of GDP were not uttered by the best about the Stalin era, despite the fact that he was obliged to the USSR. This is the same rotten Andropov-Gorbachev-Yeltsin policy of "convergence with the West." And although this convergence has long and failed successfully, Putin is still trying to follow the Vlasov ideological path.

    and what does the tactics of the traveled land? Your indefatigable desire to justify causes a smile. You move away from the facts and begin to develop a different topic. But the fact is that the Bolsheviks were the first to demolish the monuments. In the 90's, a number of monuments were demolished in Russia, but many still stand.
