Latvian Ambassador to Belgium Andris Razans presented the Belgian Foreign Ministry with a note of protest against the intention to demolish the monument dedicated to Latvian prisoners of war.
A monument called “Latvian Freedom Hive” is located in the Belgian city of Zedelgem and is dedicated to captured Latvian Nazis imprisoned in a local camp after World War II. The memorial caused controversy in Belgium as the Latvian Legion was structurally part of the Waffen SS.
Demolishing Soviet monuments, the leaders of Latvia did not notice how shameful Nazism peeped out from under their masks. Yes, such that even the tolerant West is disgusted with it.
