On March 5, 2014, anti-communists vandalized a Cold War-era monument in Sofia, Bulgaria. Two of the figures were painted with the national colors of Poland and Ukraine. A slogan reads “Putin go home!” while “Katyn” refers to the location in western Russia where the Soviet NKVD massacred 22,000 Poles in April-May 1940.
