The debate about the banning of flags on the Day of Remembrance on May 8 and 9 in Berlin enters a new round: after the Ukrainian flags, the administrative court also approved the Russian flags, the Berlin police do not want to tolerate it. , reports RBB24.
According to the police, on the eve of commemoration until the end of World War II in 1945, the Berlin Administrative Court also allowed the display of Russian flags and symbols. We are talking about the event, which is scheduled for May 9 – June 17.
Therefore, the police filed a complaint with the Supreme Administrative Court against this decision.
Recall that initially the police banned Russian and Ukrainian flags and symbols from the Soviet memorials in Treptow, Tiergarten and Schoenholzer-Heide on Remembrance Day on May 8 and 9. These two days mark the 78th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe.
However, the administrative court on Friday lifted the ban on Ukrainian symbols. The Berlin police did not file a complaint about it.
Late Saturday evening, an urgent appeal was made against the ban on Russian symbols for the May 9 event in front of the tank monument on June 17 Street. Again, the administrative court ruled against the police order. In addition, a complaint is filed next time.
The police justified their decision by wanting to ensure “due respect to the memory of the fallen soldiers of the former Soviet army.”
