In Poland, disappeared or destroyed a third of the monuments of the red Army
According to Jerzy TICA, the founder and leader of the organization “Kursk”, which on a voluntary basis repairs in the Republic of memorials dedicated to Soviet soldiers, about one third of the monuments, set in Poland after the Second world war in memory of the exploits of the red Army, have disappeared or are gradually destroyed.
“The existing register of monuments does not correspond to their actual number. I think about one third do not already exist. Step by step they are being destroyed, dismantled and disappear. Comes to absurd situations, when the authorities explain the dismantling of the monument to its poor technical condition, although they themselves must take care of them”, he said.
According to Tyco, one of those memorials that have survived, less than half are in good condition, 30% in middle and 30% – in unsatisfactory. “The technical condition of many cemeteries is catastrophic,” he said.
