Dismantling of the largest memorial to Soviet soldiers began in Lithuania

Today, the demolition of the country's largest monument to the soldiers of the Red Army began in the capital of Lithuania. Six stelae at the Antakalnis cemetery are being dismantled despite the recommendations of the UN, which previously called for the postponement of such actions.


Recall that the decision to demolish the monument was made by the local authorities of Vilnius at the beginning of summer. According to the initial plans of the City Hall, six stelae at the Antakalnis cemetery were to be dismantled before the beginning of November.

However, the UN Human Rights Committee in October appealed to the Lithuanian authorities to stop the dismantling of memorials to Soviet soldiers and to refrain from such decisions for some time. Moreover, the organization reported that they were taking the memorials under their temporary protection.

At the same time, the Lithuanian authorities stated that the aforementioned committee made such a decision, as it was misled. Therefore, his recommendations will be appealed.

As a result, the timing of the demolition of six stelae was somewhat shifted.

Meanwhile, Mayor of Vilnius Remigius Simasius announced today that all preparatory work has been completed and the contractor has already started demolishing the monument. In addition, the mayor added that all actions are taking place in accordance with the decision of local governments. Other permissions, including from the UN, as he put it, are not required.

    Well, the Lithuanians were harnessed, before they were not engaged in the fight against monuments.

      In May 2022, the mayor of Vilnius, Remigius Simasius, proposed demolishing monuments to Soviet soldiers. On June 8, 2022, the Vilnius City Council decided to demolish the memorial, but on September 26, the UN Human Rights Committee banned the demolition. I think they themselves "harnessed themselves" in order to please the "owner" for some next tranche or grant.

        Yes, the principle is simple and has long been known: "To live with wolves - to howl like wolves."
        It’s a pity, of course, the only Balts who had at least some opinion of their own.

          yes, and they, too, unfortunately, were "broken", let's hope that everything will return someday "to its own place", although sometimes it seems that there is no end and edge to this lawlessness ....

            How was it in Chaos Theory: "Everything is not what it seems and not vice versa"? I do not remember exactly. But for some it's all good. request

        When will we demolish the whole Tribaltic together with all their monuments and graves. Peter the Great bought the land of Tribaltika for gold, along with all the Chukhons.

      You are mistaken, they began to demolish the monuments from the beginning of the 90s.
      The first thing I remember was that in Kaunas, a tank was removed from the 6th fort.

        Still, removing the tank won't destroy the memorial.

          That tank was a MONUMENT to the Soviet wars that died during the liberation of the city, and you justify it? There is a green bridge in Vilnius where there were bronze sculptural compositions in the Soviet style (workers, collective farmers, soldiers, students), so they were removed back in 2015, everyone fought with the Soviet past, many smaller monuments throughout Lithuania demolished this, too, not "this" yours?

    Lithuanians, Latvians, Estonians, Ukrainians, Finns, what's the difference anyway? All their leadership are Nazis, hungry for innocent of blood of innocent Russian children. Dismantling Soviet memorial is nothing surprising. The Baltic states, just like ukrofascists, are banning Russian language and mistreat their own citizens of ethnic Russian origin just because of their nationality. I am afraid of that not only Ukraine shall be denazified. The Baltic states also shall come to big priority when it comes to saving ethnic Russian living in post-Soviet states.

    Now Bastrykin will initiate a criminal case and Lithuania will immediately change its mind, what kind of Russia has become spineless, which cannot even put the Baltic dwarfs in their place

    And we continue to trade with them and fill their budgets.
    And the turnover is even growing.

    And as soon as they take it down, they immediately bury it. In fact, it was quite possible to interrupt diplomatic relations with triboltics - why do we need them?

    At this memorial, cadets of VVKURE PVO traditionally took the oath of the USSR.

    Karma, God and Boomerang have already decided. The souls of the dead soldiers also made their decision.
    I don’t feel sorry for the mayor of Vilnius, just as I don’t feel sorry for those contractors who signed up for this filthy business ... they will die in agony and writhing.

    In the near future they will leave for America to live. These are the people of the messengers. These countries have no potential for development. Europe will be plunged into darkness forever.
