This is a recurring disinformation narrative about the statue of Marshall Konev in Prague. It is also consistent with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Russophobia and the supposedly hostile anti-Russian intentions of the West, based on which Russia can cast itself as the victim. It is also consistent with Russia's accusation to the EU and the West of trying to rewrite the history of WWII and undermine the role of the Soviet Army in defeating Nazism. The removal of the statue has nothing to do with denying the role and the sacrifices of Soviet soldiers in defeating Nazism.
The mayor of the Prague 6 district that owns the statue, Ondřej Kolář said that he respects the role of Konev-led forces in liberating Prague, and the sacrifice of Soviet armies liberating Europe from Nazism. "We will strive for an art competition for a memorial to the liberators of Prague at the end of World War Two instead of the marshal Konev statue," he said before the vote to remove the statue. "At the same time, we will secure a dignified - and let me stress that dignified - placement of this art piece (Konev) in a memorial institution. I think this is a consensual solution we have called for a number of years."
