Polish deputy calls to protect Soviet Soldiers monuments


pixabay.comWarsaw makes a big mistake pulling down Soviet monuments, the deputy of the Polish parliament Yanush Sanotsky is sure. He is against memorials’ liquidation, RIA Novosti informs.

According to him, monuments in honor of the Soviet soldiers do not praise the Soviet Regime but just pay the tribute of respect to soldiers who died saving the world from the Fascism and thanks to these people, the Polish live on Earth today. We need to face the truth, he added.

Sanotsky has emphasized that there should be difference between people intended to harm Poland, and monuments to the soldiers. Besides, the deputy has been very negative about acts of vandalism to the monuments.

It is worth reminding that in already several days a revised law about decommunization will come into effect in Poland. The parliament has approved of the amendments to the law on 22nd of June. The amendments imply pulling down several hundreds of monuments allegedly praising the Soviet regime.

Earlier Yanush Sanotsky has mentioned that the majority of the Polish establishment and mass media sources deliberately build up the conflict between Russia and Poland. They underline only negative moments of the common history stating that Moscow threatens Warsaw. The deputy is sure that such politics is aimed at managing emotions of the electorate and achievement of interpolitical purposes.
