RT / The Russian Foreign Ministry has denounced a recent act of vandalism against a monument to Soviet soldiers in southern Poland, demanding that the Polish authorities repair the damage and punish those involved. ” It was the 11th case of vandalism against our memorial sites in Poland ,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti. ” We are talking about the continuing bacchanalia around the military-historical legacy, the responsibility for which lies on Polish authorities ,” she added.
” In line with the Russian-Polish agreements in the sphere of memorials, we demand that the Polish administration repair the consequences of yet another act of vandalism, restore the original appearance of the Szczyrk monument, and also find and punish the perpetrators of this attack ,” Zakharova added.

In a second statement on the issue, Russian diplomats promised that Moscow would take reciprocal measures if Poland removes monuments to Soviet Army soldiers.
Also in July, the Russian State Duma and the Israeli Knesset passed a joint address to European parliaments, denouncing the Polish bill as an insult to the memory of Soviet soldiers and Holocaust victims.
