The Czechs are outraged by the desecration of a monument to Czechoslovak legionnaires in Russia


The Czech Embassy in the Russian Federation protests the desecration in Chelyabinsk of a monument to Czechoslovak legionnaires - participants in the Civil War in Russia 1917-1922. On May 4, unknown vandals hit the monument several times with a sledgehammer, as a result of which it was damaged.


The statement of the Czech side indicates that the criminals desecrated not only the memorial site, but also the mass grave of 262 legionnaire soldiers. Outraged Czechs emphasized that those responsible for vandalism must be found and punished. Official Prague hopes that Russia will continue to fulfill its obligations to care for military burial places - a corresponding document was signed between Russia and the Czech Republic in 1999.

A monument to Czechoslovak soldiers was installed in Chelyabinsk in 2011. On the monument - the inscription:

To the legionnaires of Czechoslovakia who died on the way to their free Motherland.


Recall, on April 3, 2020, in Prague, the authorities dismantled a monument to the liberator of the Czech capital from German invaders, Marshal Ivan Konev, which outraged the Russian public. In response to the removal of the monument from the pedestal, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case under the article for defiling the symbols of Russia's military glory committed in public.

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, pointed out that this act is contrary to the 1993 Treaty on Friendly Relations and Cooperation.

    The Yeltsinoids have completely gone mad. To erect monuments to the executioners of Russian peasants.
    To bring to hell all this nonsense. Use the occasion of the demolition of the monument to our Marshal.

      The main eltsinoid is a bald guarantor who trades RUSSIA left and right. A normal leader would have long demolished Polish, Czech and other monuments in revenge for the desecration of our fallen grandfathers.

        In Chelyabinsk, a monument to legionaries was erected during the presidency of DAM. They didn’t give him much will, but when he escaped from custody for periods, he managed to shorten everything ....... Some would like to think, read, analyze, and then pour out their indignation.

          But this composition of 10 greenhouses on the monument that depicts and symbolizes itself?

          Kolchak's "Ice Campaign" in 1920? When the Czechoslovak corps, well-fed and in hot Russian heating units, skied from Russia to Japan - together with the gold reserve of the Republic of Ingushetia, which they contracted with Kolchak to protect and betrayed Kolchak in their selfish interests ?! While the "white" Kolchak people, together with the local population, froze and died in the cold and hunger and died in the hundreds, also making their way on foot along the railroad to the Russian border.

      A monument to the victims of these legionnaires should be erected next to it. For historical justice.
      Here in the Crimea there is a monument to the deported Crimean Tatars, but there is no monument to the victims of the massacre organized by the Crimean Tatars to the local population and prisoners of the Red Navy and Red Army.
      And this logic of silence then gives rise to various myths and historical lies.

    Vandalism is unacceptable, we are not barbarians. Measures to protect the monument and the search for the perpetrators should be taken.
    As for the Czechs, we are waiting for the appeal of the Minister of Defense to Shoigu, unless, of course, they are interested in the fate of the monument.
    The city hall of Chelyabinsk needs to be expanded, I hope a person with suitable views will be found there and will raise the issue of reducing the monument. For example, leave the graves, but the fate of the monument to question. Of course, there is no need to bring it to demolition, but letting Czech partners feel the urgency of the problem on their own skin would be extremely useful.

    It is necessary to distinguish between a military burial place and a monument. The regime of military graves is regulated by international treaties. Russia contains the burial places of Czechs. The Czechs contain the burial places of Russian soldiers who died since 1812 and they are kept in good condition. Do you want to give reason to abuse these graves? Monument to Konev - this is somewhat different. Monuments to V.I. Lenin stood in all cities of the USSR, but that does not mean that someone is buried under them. These monuments have a different legal regime. These are elements of ideology.
    A very good idea is to place a monument to Russian people killed by Czechs (Hungarians, Romanians, etc.) nearby.
    In general, it’s such an abomination to fight with monuments.
    Judging by the films on Russian TV, public opinion is being prepared for the destruction of the memory of the feat of the Soviet people. Memory is destroyed step by step (evil communists, political instructors, special officers - good traitors, spies, saboteurs). Memory is removed brick by brick. If the memory is removed, the monuments will be removed. Have you seen a lot of monuments to the heroes of 1812, the heroes of the Russian-Turkish war, the Russian-Japanese, the First World War? Everything was erased. The Czechs are no one to us - a member of a military bloc hostile to Russia. Russian "cultural figures" are more terrible enemies.

    According to the current treaty, the burial places of Soviet soldiers are kept by the Czech authorities, the burial places of Czechoslovakians are kept by the Russian authorities. The Czechs complain that, in fact, in Russia they also contain burials of these legionnaires. I hope porters understand the implications of realizing their dreams? Burials in the Czech Republic at best will cease to contain, at worst they will be demolished. Are the porters ready to pay that price?

    In Russia, over 35 monuments were erected by Czech interventionists. The Czechs want to bring up to 52 monuments throughout Siberia and the Far East. In response to the demolition of the Konev monument, all these Czech obelisks must be transferred to the Far North on Sobachy Island. There they belong. Europe is doing exactly the same in relation to our monuments (Baltic, Poland, Romania ....)

    So we should dismantle communist nonsense with proletarian solidarity and brotherhood of peoples. Removing from ideology that which prevents one from looking at neighbors is not biased. The Czechs fought against us, arming Germany. And this should be discussed not only here, but also in history lessons at school. The French squadron "Normandy" - these are tears compared to the divisions of the French who fought against us. Brothers are Bulgarians, they ALWAYS fought against us or our allies. All of Europe .....
    And to begin to clean not only historical dislocations, but also our Earth.
    No one except us has the right to erect monuments on our land. And no one has the right to lead - where to rent, and where to deliver.
    Let them erect their monuments at home.
    If they are SO related to ours, then let them not expect another relationship from us.

    Quote: Oleg Rambover
    I don’t know how you do in Russia, but in Russia we don’t hang about 1000 years from the time of Prince Igor (I don’t know if he was a traitor). Emoe, are you 73 years old? And are you really from Lviv? You need to run after your grandchildren, and not dream of gallows. I ask you, do not answer my comments anymore, otherwise I won’t hold back, I’ll write something in response, and then I will be tormented by the conscience that I spoke with an elderly person like that. Nervousness is again harmful. Take care of yourself.

    Read the story. Even as they hung. Shkuro, Krasnova, and others. Skills remained.
    And for you, to prove your Russianness, it would be nice to learn how to write correctly in your native language, for so many years not to learn ..... It is necessary to be not just an ignoramus, but an ignoramus squared.
