Moscow is outraged by an act of vandalism carried out toward the monuments dedicated to Soviet soldiers who fought in World War II in Chisinau and expects an adequate response by Moldova to the incidents, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday
The latest such case involved the desecration of a granite slab commemorating pilot Georgy Chernienko, a recipient of the Hero of the Soviet Union medal, in the central alley of the Eternity Memorial Complex in Moldova's capital city of Chisinau.
"We expect an adequate response from the Moldovan authorities to such cynical acts in accordance with the agreement on perpetuating the memory of courage and heroism of the people of the CIS member countries during the Great Patriotic War, concluded on September 3, 2011, and ratified by Moldova," Zakharova said at a briefing.
She also called the incident an act of "real historical vandalism".
