The Russian embassy demanded that the German authorities find and punish those responsible for the desecration of the Soviet military memorial in Berlin. The press service of the diplomatic mission reported this on the Telegram channel.
“The Embassy sent a note to the German Foreign Ministry indicating the inadmissibility of desecrating Soviet military graves and memorials in Germany. They demanded that the perpetrators be found and held accountable,— the message says.
According to the embassy, on the night of March 29-30, unknown persons covered Soviet tanks, which are part of the architectural ensemble of the memorial in the Tiergarten district of Berlin, with covers in the colors of the Ukrainian flag.
Diplomats regarded this incident as desecration of the monument to Soviet soldiers who fell in the battles for the liberation of Europe from Nazism. “The consequences of the action were promptly eliminated with the assistance of the Berlin law enforcement agencies,” — added at the embassy.
According to radio rbb24, the Berlin police do not consider the action a crime, since the memorial was not damaged, the flags were removed.
Another incident occurred in Treptow Park, where there is also a memorial to Soviet soldiers. Two blue and yellow stars were applied to its entrance arch, a police spokesman told the radio.

The Russian embassy sent a note to the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs demanding to investigate the act of vandalism and bring those responsible to justice.
