people continue to bring flowers to the monument in Victory Park

On Tuesday, people continue to bring flowers to the square near the monument to the soldiers-liberators of Riga from the Nazi invaders in Victory Park, although yesterday’s flowers were removed early in the morning by order of the local government.

A woman with a stroller at the monument told the people who came to lay flowers that they should buy a one-way ticket to Russia. A verbal skirmish broke out, but the conflict did not develop.

In State police agency LETA have informed, that any considerable incidents at a monument this morning were not observed.

It is worth noting that the removal of flowers from the foot of the monument caused a sharp reaction on social networks, and there are both supporters and opponents of such actions.

Among other things, the leader of “Consent” Janis Urbanovic in a press release, he sharply criticizes the task of letting the tractor driver “shovel” the flowers at the monument and calls the one who ordered the harvesting of the flowers a villain and a provocateur.

Why do you want to incite hatred? Are you aware that these are not only the flowers that you have removed, but also a fragile bridge of mutual trust that needs to be strengthened by all means in the current circumstances?“, – asks a member of the Seimas from the opposition in his statement.
