Hitler portraits adorn Russian train station


Hitler portraits have been painted on a train station in Russia’s Far East.

Spray-painted graffiti portraits of Adolf Hitler began to appear in and around a train station near the Russian city of Vladivostok earlier this month, according to a monitor report from the Federation of Jewish Communities.

The portraits and the words “Hitler was right” appear at several stops on the train line, as well as on the walls of houses in the region, the group reported.

A local Web portal appealed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the region on Russia’s Pacific coast but has not received an answer as to whether an investigation would be launched.

The Vladivostok chief of police said he planned to send out a unit to paint over the portraits.
