Protesters in Prague opposed the "adjustment" of the monument to Marshal Konev

50
More than 100 residents of the Czech capital and a number of well-known politicians took part yesterday in a rally dedicated to the 120 anniversary of the birth of Marshal Ivan Konev, reports RIA News.




The protesters called on the authorities of the Prague-6 region not to spoil the marshal's monument with any additional inscriptions and honor the feat of the Red Army soldiers who liberated Czechoslovakia from fascism in 1945 year.

Earlier, city officials expressed the need to "correct" the inscription on it. According to them, there should be not only indicated his merits in the liberation of Prague from the Nazis, but also mentioned that "it was the Marshal-led troops brutally suppressed the uprising in Hungary in 1956,". The headman of Oldrich Kolarzh district in a recent letter to the Russian embassy stated that “in its present form, the monument does not correspond to the real situation and must be removed from the square of the Interbrigade, for example, to the territory of the embassy”.

Such offers are genuine vandalism, the invasion of history, attempts to distort it in hindsight. They only show that, following a new-fashioned political course, some people in the Czech Republic tend to forget who freed them from the "brown plague", sow the seeds of misunderstanding and omissions in relations with the people of Russia,
Josef Scala, the first deputy head of the Communist Party of the Czech Republic and Moravia, told the agency.

In turn, the chairman of the Czech Union of Fighters for Freedom, Yaroslav Vodička, reminded the rally that "140 thousands of Red Army soldiers laid down their lives during the liberation of Czechoslovakia from the Nazis." He was supported by a number of famous politicians.

The granddaughters of marshal Konev, Elena and Anna, thanked the inhabitants of the Czech Republic for taking care of the numerous burial places of the Red Army men in the country, for the memory of their illustrious grandfather.

If only you knew how our grandfather loved Czechoslovakia, how proud that his troops helped her liberation from fascism! Ivan Stepanovich often came to Karlovy Vary for rest and treatment, and always sought to visit Prague, walk on foot through the beloved districts of this beautiful city that were familiar with May 1945,
said Elena Koneva.

The rally participants appealed to the administration of the Prague-6 district, in which they called for preventing a barbaric treatment of the monument, once again reminded of the USSR’s role in defeating fascism and the contribution of military units headed by Konevym in the liberation of Prague.

            The Russians liberated Czechoslovakia from the Germans. They gave the Czechs the opportunity to live in their own country. Many of our grandfathers gave their lives to free others from European fascism.
            Czechoslovak troops were aggressors during the collapse of our country a hundred years ago. They (Czechs and Slovaks) scum that came to us and brought death to many of our relatives.
            And who is who?

              First, not the Russians liberated Czechoslovakia, but the Soviet. And secondly...
              Learn the story, dunno. Czechoslovakians already in 1914 organized the Czech squad from Czechoslovakians living on the territory of the Russian Empire. This squad, later called "Lege", fought for Russia.
              Here is what Russian General Brusilov said in 1917: "Czechoslovakians, treacherously left to encircle the enemy (" revolutionary "soldiers left the front and left Russia to be torn to pieces by the Germans), fought so that everyone should kneel before them. One brigade restrained the attacks several German divisions. "
              And what they did after the war with Czechoslovakians, and especially Trotsky, is the main reason that Czechoslovakians traveled to the Far East with weapons in their hands. And defended.
              And a little more cursing!

                We separate the flies from the cutlets ... those who "defended" on the road to the Far East, did not come to Russia with flowers, they were prisoners of war, i.e. the enemy and they left armed, through the ruined, great troubled country ... not quietly peacefully ... we read documents and receive documents - this is the enemy, and that’s the point.
                And during the Great Patriotic identity, there was a national military formation fighting in the ranks of the Soviet army against the Nazis, that's a fact! but the country, as a national / territorial unit, worked so hard for fascist Germany and this is a FACT!
                For the present Czech Republic ... let this Europe, part of which the SOVIET army freed from the Nazis, let them sit and not ... in short, God be their judge.

        Unfortunately, this is not an infection. This is a clearly planned operation. The fight against the Victory of the USSR in the Great Patriotic War will never end with the victory of the United States, while in Europe there is at least one monument to the liberators of the brown plague. You can rewrite history, produce provocative films, assign victory, hush up, but answer the question why if the United States freed Europe from Hitler, then there are so many monuments to Soviet soldiers, not American ones. And here any false arguments are broken about the simple granite truth.

        In the history of any state and military leader, you can dig up not very nice facts. We do not deal with this in relation to the West in general and to the generals of the USA and Great Britain in particular! Although I would like to remind the same Americans with pleasure how crazy their cowboy general was with two revolvers that the Russians took Berlin. And I didn’t forget about separate negotiations with Hitler either, otherwise I would betray the memory of my ancestors !!! soldier

      In the Czech Republic, only 1/3 of the population has Slavic roots. President Zeman, one of the most pro-Russians from Europe, who is now meeting with President Putin in Moscow, was accused in 1968 of "insufficient support" for the "fraternal" occupation and thrown out of work. And the article on TV STAR about the help of the USSR of Czechoslovakia in 1968, our president has already condemned.
