Holocaust memorial defaced in Minsk

From MosNews:

Unidentified persons have profaned a memorial to the victims of Nazism in the Belarus capital of Minsk.

Burnt plastic wreaths were found at the scene, vice president of the Union of Belarus Jewish Social Organizations and Communities, Yakov Basin, was quoted by Belarus media as saying. The defilers have also thrown away pebbles put in Jewish tombs to commemorate the dead. “The unknown persons have put a branch with a cluster of ashberries near the memorial and stuck a black raven’s feather into it which symbolizes the triumph of violence over life,” Basin said.
