Žilinka about the destroyed monuments of the liberators. It can be extremism – Home – News


Almost since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we have recorded destroyed monuments by liberators. From spraying red, then blue and yellow, which are the colors of the Ukrainian flag, to the sprayed symbols. According to Attorney General Maroš Žilinka, the use of extremist symbols cannot be covered up by false solidarity.

“The Liberation Monument is the dominant feature of the SNP Square in Piešťany, commemorating the memory of Soviet soldiers who fell during the liberation of Piešťany. Unfortunately, the celebration of the 77th anniversary of the liberators’ entry into Piešťany was done by an unknown perpetrator in an absolutely unacceptable way, worthy of strong condemnation. And not only moral, “Attorney General Maroš Žilinka began his status on the social network.

He posted a photo of a monument that someone sprayed. “Spraying a rune symbol – an inverted wolf hook, used during World War II by the Nazi 2nd SS Tank Division Das Reich, later also used by the Dutch 34th SS Volunteer Grenadier Division Landstorm Nederland the front side of the Liberators’ Monument is not just a common riot or damage to a strange thing, “Žilinka continues.

He points out that someone spray-painted a symbol used by “extremist and radical groups” on the monument. “It simply came to our notice then. The perpetrator’s conduct will therefore also be investigated in terms of the possible fulfillment of the signs of extremist crimes, “warns the Attorney General.

“Similar proceedings will not be tolerated and will be responded to by criminal law. In any case, the use of extremist symbols in a fairly clear context cannot be hidden under a kind of false solidarity, moreover, if such conduct, even in an already tense time, has the potential to undesirably provoke passion or deepen hatred, “he added.
