Anti-Russian moods in Poland evoke frequent acts of vandalism at Soviet cemeteries


11.10.2017

Military-patriotic society Kursk//FacebookAnti-Russian moods in Poland resulted in frequent acts of vandalism at Soviet cemeteries, leader of Kursk military-patriotic society Ezhi Tyc reported to TASS in his interview. According to the social activist, such behavior does not suit the civilized country at all. Ezhi Tyc has reminded that this October amendments to the law about decommunization come into effect. These amendments imply pulling down memorials symbolizing communism or any other totalitarian regime. The key part in this law is played by the Institute of National Remembrance of Poland. Its employees counted two hundred and thirty monuments and memorials popularizing communism in the country.

Despite these amendments do not concern the burial sites of the Red Army officers, stronger hysteria in Poland reached cemeteries where vandals are very active.

Leader of Kursk military-patriotic society, who has been repairing and restoring memorials at the territory of Poland over the last years has stressed out that he and his adherents will continue fighting for preservation of memory of the Soviet officers. Ezhi Tyc is puzzled with the fact that, from the one hand, Polish authorities allowed to restore around thirty monuments to the Red Army, and from the other hand, they plan to destroy similar memorials at other places. According to the social activist, in case the situation does not change, disagreement among the Polish society will intensify, which will not have any positive aftermath.

Some of them conceived the idea to develop a system of electronic textbooks and globalize the programs; others initiated active engagement of lecturers and guests from all over the world for their online classes, and also mastered advanced training for teachers in virtual environment.
Starting from Peter the Great days, Russian glossary of nautical terms was compiled based on Dutch terms. Furthermore, it experienced a significant impact from English, German and Italian terminology. Events associated with naval glory of Russia can be reconstructed through interpretation of those inherent terms. The Battle of Chesma is one of such events.
