The Investigative Committee of Russia will “investigate the desecration” of monuments to Catherine II and Suvorov in Odessa

The so-called investigative committee of Russia, on behalf of the head of the department, Alexander Bastrykin, will “investigate the desecration” of monuments to Alexander Suvorov and Catherine II in Odessa.

This is reported by Russian media.

The reason for the investigation was the preparation for the dismantling of the monument to Catherine II  in Odessa and photographs with a noose around the neck of the sculpture of Suvorov, which appeared on the network (apparently, summer).

As Oleg Konstantinov, editor-in-chief of Dumskaya, noted, Russian legislation allows initiating such “investigations”, despite the fact that these monuments are located on the territory of another state and were erected quite recently:

“But their law allows, by the way, they took a whole bunch of them there. The natives of the tumba-yumba will put up a monument to some lieutenant Sidorov, who heroically freed them from capitalism and civilization, then they will demolish – oops, the article – desecration of “places of military glory.”

According to Oleg Konstantinov, in this case, the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office should have submitted a request to the investigative committee of the Russian Federation with a request to open a case on an attempt on places of military glory in connection with rocket attacks by the Russian army.

Recall that the monument to Catherine II in Odessa was opened in 2007 , and the monument to Suvorov –  in 2012 .
