Soviet Marshal Konev's statue doused with red colour

An unknown perpetrator has doused the statue of Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev in Prague 6 with red colour and police are investigating the incident on suspicion of crime, Prague police spokesman Jan Danek told CTK on August 22, 2019, in Prague, Czech Republic. "We received a report on the statue being damaged with colour after 9:00 this morning, so a police patrol went there and checked the site. We will be searching for a so far unknown perpetrator," Danek said. Denik N daily, which was the first to report on the incident, wrote that someone had poured the plinth of the statue with colour and sprayed an inscription reading "No to the bloody marshal, we will never forget" and dates, including 1968, on the decorative facing.
