The MP expressed hope that the perpetrators would be found and severely punished, including in the framework of the UK.
“I am convinced that it was vandalism, pure and simple. And for sure the attackers aimed to carry out a provocation. It is clear that we as a country now find ourselves in a rather difficult situation, the observed aggressive policy towards the us from other individual States, including those where nationalism developed, a strong Pro-fascist sentiments. Therefore all of our actions, demonstrating the strength and glory of Russia, the country’s ability to participate in major military operations, etc., met with opposition. I think that the desecration of a monument made by those who would like to see our country weakened”, – he stressed.
According to him, the desecration of the monument – “it is a blow to civilization”.
“Let them take shovels”
Commenting on the incident the newspaper VIEW, member of state Duma Committee on labor, social policy and veterans ‘ Affairs and the representative of the popular front Valery Trapeznikov said:”There is the criminal code of Russia. Everything is spelled out what to do with the vandals. But I personally would have added these items to another item. To those who desecrated the monument, restored with his own hands. Let him work for the good of the country. Recognize that the work of architects, sculptors, builders, who did the monument, is also difficult. Let them take shovels and unload at least one car of cement,” he said.
In addition to the labor service, the MP proposes to fine the violators and to put them in jail.
Commenting on the reasons for “home vandalism,” Trapeznikov said that they lie largely in education. “This is our common problem. And must all work together to work toward a solution. Who could desecrate the monument? I think someone in a state of mild alcoholism, who had no idea what it is worth and what it destroys”, he added.
“I wish there were flowers”
In turn, the head of the Commission for the development and support of volunteerism, charity and Patriotic education of the Public chamber, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the “Russian Union of rescuers Sergey Shchetinin offers to focus on the promotion.
“Young people need to educate, in particular, with the help of propaganda. Yes, for some this word is, if not abusive, at least raises suspicion. But no need to be afraid of this word. From the propaganda of the right of common values on the state level, in schools, clubs additional education and so on will not escape us,” he said.
According to Shchetinin, children and adults need to know not only about those deeds that were committed during the great Patriotic war, but also about those that are happening now. “It doesn’t matter in the military field or civilian, no matter within the country or abroad”, – he added.
According to Shchetinin, not so important who the culprits were – alcoholics, do not give a report of his actions, or deliberate attackers and provocateurs. “I would not like neither one nor the other in our country. And I wish there were flowers and we honored the memory of these people,” he concluded.
