The Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that it condemned the incident with the monument in Plovdiv:
Such manifestations are completely unacceptable and contradict the traditional tolerance and tolerance of the Bulgarian society, as well as the obligations of the EU and international organizations to combat racism, xenophobia and hate crimes.
We hope that the competent authorities will uncover the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
It is noteworthy that the inscriptions on the monument were made in Russian.
Unfortunately, the desecration of monuments to Soviet soldiers-liberators for some European countries is almost the norm. Among those countries where monuments are struggling at the state level - for example, Poland.
