Moscow may be behind anti-Semitic actions of vandals in France

France is investigating whether graffiti which last week appeared on the wall of the Paris Holocaust memorial, a destabilization operation coordinated by Russia.

This is reported by France Info, citing a source familiar with the investigation.

Investigators are now considering the possibility that the graffiti was ordered by Russian intelligence services and could have been carried out using a design similar to that used in another graffiti campaign last fall, when the Star of David was painted on buildings in and around Paris, the material says.

The Holocaust memorial surveillance cameras captured two people arriving around 3 a.m. with spray paint and stencils, as well as two or three other people who may have been involved, the source said.

Note that they were quickly identified using mobile phone data.

They were all Bulgarians and left Paris by bus for Brussels the same morning immediately after painting over the graffiti, France Info reports, confirming a previous report by the satirical weekly Canard Enchaîné.

It was previously reported that in In Paris, vandals desecrated a memorial honoring the people who saved Jews in France during the Nazi occupation of the country in World War II. Unidentified people painted the memorial with images of red hand marks.

Before this, Moldovan businessman Anatoly Prizenco admitted his involvement in the action of painting Stars of David on buildings in Paris and its suburbs.

Recall, November 3 in Paris, a Moldovan couple, a man and a woman about 30 years old, were caught painting images of the Star of David on the facades of buildings in the middle of the night.

It also became known that French investigators are considering the possibility that there are stars behind dozens of drawings Russia stands on houses of David.
