Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Russia’s Ambassador to Poland Doused with Red Paint at Victory Day Memorial in Warsaw

HeadlineMay 10, 2022

In Warsaw, protesters surrounded Russia’s ambassador to Poland Monday and doused him in red paint as he prepared to lay flowers at a monument to Soviet soldiers who died defeating Nazi Germany in World War II.

Olga: “I think that they did not have to come today and put flowers at the monument, because they are aggressors in Ukraine. They can’t do this. Ukrainians are with me today. A man from Belarus is with us. We all want there to be no more war.”

The Russian Embassy filed a formal protest and blasted the Polish demonstrators as “admirers of neo-Nazism.”
