Moscow has sent a diplomatic note to the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry that protests the planned demolition of a monument to the Soviet Red Army in the Bulgarian city of Plovdiv. Moscow claims that the decision, taken by local leaders in Plovdiv, violates a 1992 cooperation agreement between the two countries. The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry reportedly agreed that destruction of the monument is improper. (Reuter, April 17)
