The monument – ossuary of Soviet soldiers in Lozenets district in Sofia has been covered with the words "Europe Day instead of Victory Day" in reference to the upcoming celebrations of the Day of peace and unity in Europe and of the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union in the Second World War both marked on May 9, BTV reports.
