Return of Konev Monument to Russia: Czech Republic Offers Negotiations


The Czech side is ready to negotiate the transfer of the monument to Marshal Ivan Konev of Russia. On Monday, April 27, Czech Foreign Minister Tomas Petřicek told the local media. Earlier, the request for the transfer of the monument to the Russian side was brought to the Czech Ministry of Defense, however, according to Petřicek, such cases should be decided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


A spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that moving the monument to Konev in Prague is a violation of the 1993 treaty of friendly relations and cooperation between the two states, and the monument cannot be transported to another place unilaterally. The Czech authorities claim that the location of the monument has nothing to do with the contract.

Czech Republic - a country that respects treaties

- said Petrzycek.

Currently, the statue of Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev is in storage at Meszyce in eastern Prague. Later it is planned to transfer it to the Museum of the 20th century, which will soon be built in the Czech capital. The monument will remain the property of the Prague-6 district of Prague.

Earlier, the former Prime Minister of Slovakia Chernogursky proposed to transport the monument to the Soviet Marshal on the territory of this state.

    It is right. To erect a monument in Russia, there is a worthy place. And the Czechs should pass on all those memorials to the white-collar workers, of whom there are too many divorced in Russia. We do not need monuments to the punitive of our people.

      Never give away! At each memorial to the unbearable pain brought to the peoples of Russia by white-sheaths, place detailed information about their crimes!

        This is also an option, but all the information on these small memorials simply will not fit.

            I agree. Fair, and Chekhov will pass to the liver. Add. install elements behind the fence, but next to it. The letter of the law will be respected.

    The monument to Marshal must be taken back to his homeland, and ... put it right in front of the gates of the Czech embassy. If at the same time entry from Fucik Street into the Czech embassy becomes problematic, all the better. And in front of the monument there is a large stand about why it stands here: especially for Czech friends, and for domestic fans of Czech beer.

    Level with the earth and leave no trace. Developing your idea, maybe we will put a monument to the soldiers of the Wehrmacht near our Motherland - Mother on Mamaev Kurgan, to walk and spit on him? However, .........

      Why not? If the monument is correct.
      Brave German soldiers stand in an excellent mood, burn a hut, from the windows of which children climb out.
      But he will not be, because some do not want to spit, others want investments and Mercedes, and still others are ordinary boys from Novy Urengoy ...

        There is a good monument to the fascists - Auschwitz.
        But it is not here, but in Poland, and there may easily appear "activists" to build something more tolerant on this site, especially when the issue of indemnity is resolved ... Other monuments, more correct, of course, are the names - to the victims of fascism ( also the majority abroad - Ukraine, the Baltics, the Balkans) are also periodically defiled, transferred, forgotten ...
        But there are monuments that were not made by us to all the Vlasovites, Bandera, Spanish, Italian "heroes" without an emphasis on their atrocities, without those very tablets with their crimes.
        Ah, yes, well, how are we going to show in a bad way the Baltic states, Germans, Ukrainians, Japanese, Bulgarians, English, French, and others - they are partners.
        Whoever remembers the old, the eye is out.
        And whoever forgets - both!

          I completely agree with you, if you do not keep the memory of the evil and good brought to our lands, then Kolya from Urengoy will seem like innocent lamb! hi

    For this we need not monuments for spitting. Why become like savages who are around a fire jumping around a scarecrow of the enemy and poking him with spears? To clean, clean, and educate the next generations is not in the ideology of forgiveness and tolerance, saying that you are not a man, not a woman, but a creature who can imagine himself as anyone.
