In Odessa, vandals desecrated a monument to Pushkin

MOSCOW, Nov. 10 A monument to the classic of Russian literature Alexander Pushkin was desecrated in Odessa, according to the local newspaper Dumskaya on Thursday.

“Unidentified people 'decorated' with inscriptions the sculpture of the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin on the street of the same name. According to the Dumskaya correspondent, the word 'get out' was written on the monument from all sides (translated into Russian “out” – ed.)”, – the message in the Telegram channel of the publication says.
Earlier, vandals desecrated a monument to the Russian commander Alexander Suvorov in Odessa, writing on it “you are next”, as they hinted, that the monument, in their opinion, should be dismantled, the local edition “Odesskaya Zhizn” reported.

Advisor to the head of the Odessa regional military administration Sergei Bratchuk on Tuesday said that the monument to Catherine II in Odessa would be dismantled in the near future. The monument was repeatedly attacked by vandals: they poured paint over it, put inscriptions on it, put a red cap on it, and put a noose in his hand, which should symbolize that the empress, who founded the city, was supposedly an “executioner”.

The dismantling of monuments related to Soviet history, as well as the renaming of streets, began in Ukraine in 2015, when a law on decommunization was passed. Recently, the Ukrainian authorities have begun to fight not only with Soviet history, but with everything connected with Russia.
Chairman of the Russian Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin instructed to give a legal assessment of the facts of the demolition and desecration of monuments in Ukraine.
