The vandals mixed up the Armenian alphabet with Hebrew

In Novokuznetsk, Kemerovo region, the vandals mixed up the Armenian alphabet with Hebrew and painted a swastika on the monument of Russian-Armenian friendship. The monument looks like an open book, on one page of which the Armenian alphabet is placed, on the other side - the Russian one.

According to the monitoring service of anti-semitism operating under the auspices of the RJC and the "Sova" сenter, the vandals drew a swastika on the pedestal of the monument and provided it with an explanation: "To the Jews." Apparently, the attackers took the Armenian alphabet for Hebrew.

Maybe, it would be better if the authors of the inscription learnt foreign languages in their free time left from vandalism.
