“Apparently, in the night of Monday, June 21, 2021, on the eve of the football match Denmark – Russia, the monument to Ukrainian genius – Taras Shevchenko was dishonored in Copenhagen,” the message said.
It is noted that the monument was painted in a Russian tricolored flag and the elements of the Russian propaganda were painted at the base of the sculpture.
The Embassy condemned the barbaric act and urged the police to hold the investigation as soon as possible.

Besides, in the city of Lysychansk, Luhansk region, vandals damaged a monument to the perished Heroes-volunteers. Law enforcement officers are conducting operational search measures to identify the intruders.
