Mukachevo is being de-communized (PHOTOS)

Right now, in the center of Mukachevo, municipal service workers are removing Soviet symbols from the Obelisk of Glory and the columns, located nearby.

The arms of the USSR, communist stars - all that will be cut down under the decree on the so-called de-communization. The inscription "Glory to Russian weapons", which offends citizens. will also be removed.

The Panorama Mukacheva notes that some elderly people, who were there, complained about the decision to cut down the communist symbols. However, young people approve of this initiative.

By the way, the issue of relocation of the monument to the soldiers of the World War II from the center of Mukachevo, which has been raised repeatedly, divided society into supporters and opponents of this idea.

It should be added that Mukachevo meanwhile is preparing to honor the heroism of the defenders of the country from Nazism. Thus, Transcarpathian soldiers cleaned up military graves, on their own initiative.

Recall that on April 9, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law on condemnation of the communist and Nazi totalitarian regimes, banned their propaganda and symbols. This decision was supported by 254 deputies.
