The monument is currently located in the city center, adjacent to the bus terminal. Rēzekne mayor Aleksandrs Bartaševičs (Harmony) did not comment on the decision.
The movement of the monument to the cemetery was the only proposal examined and approved by the Members. However, the deputies representing the opposition did not attend the meeting of the Council.
So far, there are no estimates of how much it will cost. The financial resources will be allocated from the local government contingency budget.
As reported earlier by LSM, in May, the Latvian Saeima made the removal of Soviet-glorifying symbols mandatory, except for burial sites.
