On May 9, attackers entered the territory of the military burial ground of the Soviet army in Ebensee and damaged the bas-relief on the monument to soldiers who “gave their lives for the liberation of Austria from Nazism.” About it informs Russian embassy in Vienna.

“It is especially cynical that this vile crime was committed around the Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War,” emphasizes the representative office.

The message also says that the Russian diplomatic mission will send a note of protest to the Austrian Foreign Ministry demanding to find out all the circumstances of the incident, as well as to bring the perpetrators to justice.

In addition, the embassy calls on local authorities to ensure “the integrity and safety of the memorial in accordance with the provisions of the State Treaty on the Restoration of an Independent and Democratic Austria of May 15, 1955.”

Earlier it became known that in Warsaw, local residents protested near the memorial cemetery of the soldiers of the Soviet army, because of which the Russian ambassador Sergey Andreev could not lay flowers in honor of the holiday, reports “FederalPress”.
