Monuments to the Victims of Holodomor and to UPA Soldiers desecrated in Kharkiv
In the Kharkiv Youth Park vandals have daubed two monuments with paint.
Black paint was used to blot out the Ukrainian emblem and the word “army” on the memorial stone to the soldiers of the Ukrainian Resistance Army [UPA]. Paint was also use to wipe out the dates “1932-1933” on the Memorial to the Victims of Holodomor [the Famine].
This is already the second attack on the monument to the Soldiers of the UPA in the last month. Last time the memorial stone was wrenched from its foundations and through into a pit nearby. The stone was only placed on the site again the following day. The Russian organization Eurasian Youth Union claimed responsibility for the act.
