This year, the Kaliningrad authorities have spent over 6.7 million rubles to eliminate the consequences of acts of vandalism. Elena Dyatlova, acting head of the city administration, announced this on her Facebook page.
“This money would be enough to support seven improvement projects under the initiative budgeting program. With these funds, it was possible to plant 350 valuable trees 12-15 years old. Instead, the funds were spent on restoring bus stops, playgrounds, trash bins, benches, lanterns, and, of course, walls and monuments, “Dyatlova said.
According to her, since January 2020, 311 public transport stops, 217 waste bins, 63 playgrounds, more than 700 benches have been damaged. Kaliningrad.Ru…
Earlier in November, investigators organized an investigation into the desecration of the busts of Heroes of the Fatherland in the square of Memory of Heroes in the center of Smolensk. This is not the only case when Russians show disrespect for monuments that symbolize the country’s victory in the Second World War. On October 17, in the town of Yelets in the Lipetsk region, a pre-investigation check was launched into the desecration of the memorial dedicated to those who died during the Great Patriotic War (WWII).
