Bulgaria Charges Pink Soviet Memorial Graffiti Alleged Author
The Sofia Regional Prosecutor's Office has charged with hooliganism a man, identified as N.K., in the case of the "pink" Soviet Army Monument in the Bulgarian capital.
On August 21, the controversial monument of the Soviet Army in the downtown of the Bulgarian capital Sofia was colored once again, this time in honor of the Prague Spring.
The Monument "woke up" with the Red Army soldier figures painted in pink and with the inscriptions in Bulgarian and Czech "Bulgaria apologizes" ("Bulharsko se omlouv?").
The pre-trial proceedings were launched against an unknown perpetrator. The punishment for such type of crime calls for up to two years of jail time and/or probation.
According to unconfirmed information the charged man is Nikolay Kolev, a Bulgarian poet and dissident, who most recently made headlines with his letter to Bulgaria’s six leading institutions, making known his plans to throw tomatoes at each.
