THE BOUNCING CZECH STATUE
A monument to Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev, who commanded the notorious Red Army forces that occupied Prague following the liberation of Czechoslovakia by the Reich, has been removed and derided for ‘not having a mask’ by one local official, in what the remnants of Bolshevik Russia condemn as an insult.
Konev is one of the most sinister Red Army generals. He commanded the 1st Ukrainian Front (army group) that pounced on the Auschwitz industrial work and leisure complex in January 1945 and the Czech capital several months later, putting an end to six years of comparative freedom.
As the saying goes, ‘enjoy the war as peace is going to be terrible’. It certainly was. The Red Army was worse even than the American and British armed forces for raping, murderous forays, transportation, and plundering of the people’s wealth.
On Friday, the authorities in Prague’s District Six dismantled the Red general’s statue, using the fact that stay-at-home orders imposed to combat the spread of Covid-19 prevented any protesters from showing up. Protestors? Unlikely as the Red Army was withdrawn during the collapse of the Soviet Union in the late 1980s.
‘He didn’t have a mask on. Those rules apply to everybody. You can only be outside if your mouth and nose are covered,’ district mayor Ondrej Kolar joked on Facebook, prompting a multitude of leftie responses.
The Russian mission to OSCE called it a ’dark day’ in Prague’s history. Moscow’s embassy in Prague blasted Kolar for his ‘cynical’ joke, calling the removal of the statue a ‘provocation’ aimed at harming ties between Russia and the Czech Republic.
Adding insult to contempt, Konev’s statue is scheduled to become the first exhibit in a museum dedicated to the ’totalitarian regimes’ present on Czech territory in various periods.
Reports say, this type of behaviour by Kolar and his colleagues is possibly inspired by the example of Czech’s northern neighbours, and fellow EU and NATO member, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine and elsewhere, which has been dismantling Soviet monuments as part of a broader campaign of historical revisionism.
Another aspect of the NOVID-19 lockdown is the likelihood that victors’ propaganda razzmatazz on May 8, 2020, will be muted. It could be that the Moscow military fests, along with the more muted ones in Britain, will be called off. Like this story? Share it with others.
