Soviet Army Monument in Bulgaria's Plovdiv Gets 'Uncloaked'
Officers from Bulgaria's fire rescue have removed the enormous red cloak placed over the Soviet Army Monument in second-largest city Plovdiv.
Police officers had to summon emergency rescuers in order to undrape the sculpture of a lone Soviet soldier, informally known as Alyosha.
At present, no group has assumed responsibility for the act, which must have demanded considerable technical prowess.
A preliminary investigation has been launched, informed the Plovdiv police.
A string of half-joking, half-serious decorations of the Soviet Army Monument in Bulgarian capital Sofia have provoked both approval and sharp criticism.

That's a bit tricky, Sa-sha, when the country is run by a bunch of Commies and gangsters in the pay of the Russian Government-Mafia!
One day we'll show you Russkis onceagain what Democracy and Free Elections mean, once we've re-educated the last of the antiquated Can't-Face-The-Modern-World Comrades.....or sent them to their spiritual nirvana in Лубянская площадь ;)
