Vandals attack new Ukrainian war memorial


Vandals attempted to damage a new war memorial at a Jewish cemetery in southwest Ukraine.

Unidentified persons made an attempt to damage a not-yet dedicated memorial to victims of political repression and Romanian soldiers who were killed during World War II.

The vandals succeeded in moving the memorial and damaging the fencing at the site, erected in the city of Chernovtzy last week.. 

Law enforcement agencies are investigating the case, but no arrests have been reported.
