A statue of the Soviet military commander Ivan Konev in Prague has been vandalised. During Monday night, pink paint was poured over the monument to the World War II leader. Police are investigating the matter, a spokesperson said.
Konev helped liberate Prague in May 1945, an anniversary that is being marked on Tuesday. The statue, which stands in the city’s Bubeneč district, was also defaced a year ago.
