The Czechs called the guilty of the demolition of the monument to Konev in Prague

Czech Russophobes continue to mock the historical truth and blame Russia. This can be judged by the interview given by the head of the Prague-6 district of the Czech capital Ondřej Kolář to the Info portal.

According to a municipal official who suddenly ceased to be afraid of the Russian special services and crawled out of the underground, he absolutely does not repent of his deeds, but rather believes that he did the right thing when he dismantled the monument to USSR Marshal Ivan Konev. After all, his actions helped the bored Czechs “shake themselves up”, stirred up society and made it possible to start an “interesting” discussion of a historical nature.

Kolarge also cynically declared that Russia itself was to blame for the dismantling of the monument, or rather, its actions. So for himself, he found the culprit and called him publicly.

We never achieved his demolition. If Russia had not begun what it began, then the monument would have stood still today

- said Russophobe.

However, he did not specify what exactly “Russia began”. But he emphasized that he condemns the desecration of any monuments and in general - it is impossible to break the monuments. After that, Kolarge switched to the USA and a number of European countries, where many different monuments were destroyed during the protest actions. So he defiled the desecration of the Konev monument that took place before dismantling, along with the activities of Black Lives Matter in the United States and similar organizations in other countries.

Kolarge explained that the dismantled monument caused conflicts among local residents, but now it is safe in a warehouse and is preparing to be sent to the museum. That is, Russophobe was afraid that he would be put on a par with racists and vandals, which, however, he fully deserves.

After that, he talked about the discomfort that he has experienced since the police took him under guard.

The police are wonderful people, but they are on my heels

- the elder is sad.

But he considers the presence of protection a necessary measure, since about 50 letters with threats come to him daily. However, he did not go into details, they write to him "grateful" residents of the Czech Republic or other countries.

In turn, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, called the "statement" that Russia was allegedly to blame for the dismantling of the monument as "dirty fuss".

The location of the monument was regulated by legal acts. All this dirty fuss has nothing to do with law

- reported Zakharova.

    In the Czech Republic, definitely, there are not enough blacks! They would tell him what monuments to tear down.

    Russian citizens are stolen, arrested abroad, deported. I am not talking about protecting the flag and coat of arms of the state at the international level. Therefore, Kolarge is somewhat right. Russia itself is to blame because it does not protect the rights of living people, and here it’s all right! Czechs know that there will be no answer! For me, so I would answer in a mirror. Would demolish all the monuments of Czechs and Poles in Russia. All the villains are always afraid of the inevitability of punishment. And when they know that they won’t have anything, why not make fun of them?

      The President of Russia is weak. Spit in his eyes - God's dew. All the enemies of Russia are "our Western friends and partners". When the loot of all his courtiers lies in Western banks, one cannot behave otherwise. One sharp movement against "Western partners and friends", and their court lackeys and strangled in the toilet. And I want to live. So it spins, like in a frying pan.

    It is necessary for Russia to demolish all the MONUMENTS built in many cities of Siberia, the lost WHITES, which, unlike Konev, were not RELEASERS, but were OCCUPIERS and KILLERS of Siberians ..
    There is nothing to HUMILIATE before the CASES ..

      Before expressing his invaluable opinion, I would read something other than moronic comments. The monument to Konev is a memorial, decorative, historical object, architectural form ... This is all, but nobody is buried under this monument.
      On the other hand, there are military graves where real soldiers are buried. In the Czech Republic there are many such burials of Russian soldiers who died in various wars, beginning in 1812. There is an interstate agreement on the protection and maintenance of burials. The Czech side is in decent condition. Calling to demolish the monuments on the graves of the white whales, you actually call to demolish the monuments to Russian soldiers in the Czech Republic.
      A passing question - in your city there are monuments to soldiers who died in the war of 1812, in the Russian-Turkish war, in the Russian-Japanese war, in the First World War? That's it. It’s like you, the gorlopans, who brought them down like the legacy of tsarism.
      Any monuments should stand. We didn’t put them, it’s not for us to destroy them. Let the descendants remember both good and bad.
      In general, fighting the dead is the lot of cowards and scoundrels. No need to become like Czech bureaucrats.

    Military graves in the Czech Republic

    Russian military burials in the Czech Republic include the military burial of the Napoleonic Wars (1805-1814), the burial of the First World War (1914-1918) and the burial of the Second World War (1939-1945).

    Military burial places 1805-1814

    The burials of the Napoleonic wars were preserved mainly in those places where hostilities took place (South Moravian Region, settlement Slavkov near Brna (Austerlitz) - 30 thousand buried, more than half of them were Russian soldiers; Ustetsky Territory, Khlumets (Battle of Kulm ) - 10 thousand buried, of which more than 7500 Russian soldiers; Prague, Olshansky cemetery - 45 buried officers of the imperial army; Nymburk, former city cemetery). The burials of those years are mass graves on which monuments and sculptural compositions were later installed. Almost all burials are kept in exemplary order.

    Military burial places 1914-1918

    During World War I, mainly prisoners of war were buried in the Czech Republic. The largest burials of Russian soldiers are in Terezin, Josefov (Jaromer), Hradec Kralove, Martinkovitsy, Jindřichovice. Almost all of them are in good condition.

    Military burial places 1939-1945

    According to the official data of the Central Archive of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, there are 652 military burials on the territory of the Czech Republic (only the burial places of the Second World War are taken into account in the official data of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation), in which 25 people are buried, of which: famous - 826 people, unknown - 9 people . According to the census of military graves and documents available at the Embassy and Czech archives, more than 628 Soviet soldiers who died during the liberation of Czechoslovakia during World War II, and more than 16 prisoners of war and Soviet citizens were buried in the Czech Republic.

    The largest burials are located in the cities: Brno - 3647, Gluchin - 3356, Opava - 3230, Gustopece - 1875, Olomouc - 1510, Hodonin - 1489, Libkowice - 1000, Ostrava - 660, Prague-Olshany - 437, Prague-Hodov - 263 , as well as in a number of other settlements.

    By 1999, about 20% of the burial places of the Red Army were lost or undergone changes (144 places), therefore, work continues on the certification of unknown burials. According to preliminary estimates, the work can be completed before the end of 2014.

    Since 2011, at the invitation of the MoD of the Chechen Republic and the administration of the Moravian-Silesian Region, a representative of the Russian Embassy in the Czech Republic annually takes part in a workshop on the care of military burial places and memorials, at which the pilot project “Preservation and Restoration of Historical Traditions” was launched.

    As part of the project, lectures, tours of the places of hostilities, competitions among students of universities and schools of the Moravian-Silesian Region on the history of the Second World War and meetings with eyewitnesses of the events of those years will be held. The children will also take part in establishing the fate of the dead soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Czechoslovakia. This work will allow to replenish the lists of the symbolic cemetery of the fallen Red Army soldiers, which is located in the Museum-Memorial of the History of the Second World War in the settlement Grabs.
