Poltava – The vandals desecrated the Monument of Grieving Mother in Poltava. This monument is a memorial sign to the Jewish people who fell victim to Nazism.

The memorial at the site, where the Nazis gunned down thousands of locals, Soviet prisoners of war and Jews, was painted with the slogans “Heil Hitler” (“Glory to Hitler”) and “Death to the Jews.” The vandals, who remain unidentified, also painted a swastika on the main part of the monument and covered the eyes of the portrait sculpture, depicting the Grieving Mother, with black paint.
