The plaque was removed in 2017, and the former mayor of Prague, Adriana Krnachova, said that after the reconstruction of the town hall, the plaque would be returned to its former location.
“The current leadership of Prague has officially informed us that they are not going to return the board to its original place,” the Russian embassy said in a statement on Facebook.
It is clarified that the embassy considers this action an attempt to “obliterate one of the most important pages of our common history”.
“We urge the current Prague authorities not to commit a short-sighted act and return the plaque to its original place,” the text says.
Earlier it became known that the German government intends to allocate more than € 9 million for the reorganization of memorial complexes that were erected in honor of Soviet soldiers in Treptower Park and Tiergarten.
