Bulgaria: Ukraine, EU Flags Painted Over Soviet Monument in Sofia Photo by BTV, Ladislav Tsvetkov.

A Soviet monument in Bulgaria's capital city of Sofia has been painted with the flags of Ukraine and the European Union, Thursday.

The monument – ossuary of Soviet soldiers in Lozenets district in Sofia has been covered with the words "Europe Day instead of Victory Day" in reference to the upcoming celebrations of the Day of peace and unity in Europe and of the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union in the Second World War both marked on May 9, BTV reports.

The painted monument is one of the two places where representatives of the Embassy of Russia lay wreaths and flowers every year on that date.

@Bulgarian Proud, get you fucking doped ass out of my country you stupid Eurotrash shithead. You did not become a Bulgarian just because you moved from your shithole country to ours so you can get high on heroin while still collecting the welfare checks from back home. And don't ever open your fucking mouth you cocksucker to utter the word Bulgarian again.

"You're here in my country earning a living because you can't earn it in your dumpster fucking beggar dirty migrant shit."

I'm not sure what exactly you have smoked, as salaries in Moscow and Petersburg, along with many other bigger cities, have way higher average salaries than Bulgaria. You poor dirty peasant.

Not to mention, I do not want to live here in this shithole Sofia, but my work forced me to move to this half broken bulgaroland.

You sir, is an idiot. You people vandalized ours, then we vandalize yours. Simple payback bitch!

Bulgaria can't even be compared to Russia, and people with your level of intelligence clearly displays what sort of monkeys you can find in this country. Fortunately many Bulgarians are not at your level of intelligence and can actually make smart remarks. Which makes it clear that you're a mixed gypsy turk, and not a Bulgarian.

It's sickening to deal with racists idiots like you which makes it difficult for just regular Russians to live daily life and ultimately breaks their patience and spit out their hate back at the racist Bulgarians. Causing unncessary fights and violence.

If you're not able to have a civilized conversations (most mixed gypsies/turks can't), it's better that you just drop yourself in the most disgusting neighborhood Krasna Polyana and bathe in shit with the rest of your pigs.

P.S, No disrespect to ordinary Bulgarians, as I know it's not the ordinary people who does this sort of things. As with every country, there is always destructive vandals unfortunately.

Again? Just shows how stupid these people really are. And how come there is still not a guard as this monument is frequently targeted?

As tomorrow is 9th of May, very important day, and these people ruined such a monument of all the millions who died against these nazis. This just makes me want to take a huge Bulgarian flag, and burn it to the ground in the middle of serdika as revenge.

Get rid of those ugly pieces of shit and horrible monuments and send them to the Museum of Communism in Darvenitsa. That's where they belong. Send Optimistic too while you're at it, since he has nothing to do all day he can probably keep them nice and clean.

Soviet monuments were built for propaganda purposes and they are symbols of totalitarian communist ideology which killed several times more people than nazism. Liberation of 8th of May was for the western Nations, the East has fallen under Soviet domination and was economically devastated by irrational ideology lasting next 50 years. Although the communists did not kill people for racial reasons like the nazis, they did it with regard to the social class their victims represented. In both cases the victims were innocent people. All Soviet propaganda monuments shall be dismounted as it was with Nazi ones. However, the cementaries of Soviet soldiers should be protected, it is a whollydifferent thing.

Catch the bastards that did this and put them in jail.

9th May is so important it was when Facists were beaten but unfortunately in the Ukraine the Facists are back.
