The Hungarian monument in Warsaw was restored and crowned, which was damaged by unknown perpetrators at the end of the week, during protests against the decision of the Constitutional Court to tighten the abortion ban, the Hungarian embassy in Warsaw told MTI on Monday.
The monument to the Hungarian soldiers who took part in the 1944 anti-Nazi uprising in Warsaw stands near the parliamentary complex. This part of downtown Warsaw has been one of the venues for the protests in recent days.
– says the embassy statement. Some of the illustrations in the monument are reminiscent of the symbol of the current demonstrations, the red lightning. There is also a distorted symbol called Fighting Poland. This anchor-shaped symbol in its original form refers to the Polish resistance of World War II.
The Hungarian embassy thanked the volunteer who tried to remove the scribble and thanked the Polish Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) for clearing the monument.
The restored monument was crowned by Hungarian Ambassador Orsolya Kovács Zsuzsanna, military attaché József Szabó, and by Deputy Director Mateusz Szpytma on behalf of IPN.
