PetrozavodskVandals damaged a Jewish cemetery located in downtown Petrozavodsk. They painted swastikas on the entrance doors to the cemetery.

The internet site “Respublika” found out that the Jewish community knew about the incident since  yesterday. The Community chairman Dmitry Zwiebel is ready to file a complaint with the police.


"Such an event has not occurred in Petrozavodsk for several years. We believed that such actions never would happen again. But we were wrong" - noted Zwiebel.


“Respublika” reported that today all the paintings were covered with black paint.
