The Russian Embassy sent an appeal to the Austrian Foreign Ministry due to the appearance of a neo-Nazi symbol at a Soviet monument in Vienna, Russian Ambassador to Austria Dmitry Lyubinsky said on Friday. Earlier, the ambassador said that unknown persons in Vienna painted a nationalist symbol on the wall near the monument to Soviet soldiers in Vienna who fell during the liberation of Austria from Nazism. The wall behind the memorial was previously painted in the colors of the Ukrainian flag, now it also has the symbols of the Azov national battalion, against whose militants criminal cases have been initiated in the Russian Federation. The memorial is located on the Schwarzenbergplatz square in the center of Vienna. “The Russian Embassy sent an appeal to the Austrian Foreign Ministry in connection with another trick of Ukrainian radicals on the Schwarzenbergplatz square in the center of Vienna on May 25,” Lyubinsky said in a statement published on the social networks of the embassy. “We will carefully look at the reaction authorities on this neo-Nazi “creativity” that is offensive to the culture of historical memory in Austria itself,” the ambassador added. protest after monument desecration
