Pop Art apology for invasion of Czechoslovakia

Unidentified artists in Bulgaria applied pink paint to the Red Army Monument in the centre of Sofia on Tuesday night in a gesture of apology for the invasion by Warsaw Pact troops of the former Czechoslovakia in 1968. Russia's Foreign Ministry called the act vandalism, but the daily Trud counters: "During the communist era, Bulgaria's People's Court sentenced a man to death because he'd put up an electric fence around his garden and caused the death of a thief. Back then everyone agreed with the ruling. No one dared to say that the whole state was surrounded by an electric fence. Yes, painting a monument may be vandalism, but wasn't the invasion of a foreign country and the crushing of an entire people's struggle for freedom a far bigger form of state-ordered vandalism?"
