In the recent months, the residents of Pinsk have repeatedly seen swastikas and Nazi inscriptions appear on the walls of various buildings and in other public places of the town.

First was desecrated the monument to victims of the local ghetto, and after that a Nazi insignia appeared on the door of one of the Jewish educational centers. Later vandalism was reported in the children's park, where multiple images of the swastika could be observed around a specially built castle. The reaction of the city authorities only came after public complaints and reports of journalists.

Swastikas and inscriptions were painted over, but the problem has not been solved.

Pinsk residents notice that the Nazi signs began to appear on the walls of high-rise buildings in the city center. But then again the executive committee is too slow to give instructions to officials in charge to eliminate the pictures and to take action to search those involved in the propaganda of Nazism.
