Russian Vandals Painted the Street Signs at “Dzhoxar Dudaev” Street

According to the Latvian website Delfi.lv, on August 24, unknown vandals indelibly painted street signs, which are in honor of Dzhoxar Dudaev, first President of Chechen Republic Ichkeria, in Riga, the capital of Latvia.

This information was confirmed to the news agency by Ines Timan, the spokesman of Riga police department. According to him, painted tablets were discovered on the morning of August 24. The premilinary data points to young Russians as the perpetrators behind this vandalism. When the police arrived at their address, the hooligans were no longer there.

Russian vandals painted a total of eight street signs on the Avenue of Dzhoxar Dudaev (Džohara Dudajeva gatve).

Let us remind you that since 1996, a Russian minority in Riga has tried to change the street’s name, which is a tribute to the memory of Dzhoxar Dudaev. This has especially rung true during the last year when it was brought to the agenda of Riga by the newly elected pro-Russian city mayor.
