Holocaust monument defaced in western Ukraine

A monument to the victims of the Holocaust was found defaced in the western Ukrainian city of Kryvyi Rih, Israel’s ambassador to the country Joel Lion said.

The envoy shared a photograph on Sunday of the vandalised monument on Twitter, noting that it lies “not far from President’s @ZelenskyyUa’s parents’ home.”

“I hope that justice will prevail,” Lion added.
