A FORMER Red Army tank from World War II sitting in an open-air museum in a park near the Monument of the Slovak National Uprising (SNP) in Banská Bystrica was spray-painted with pink hearts in the late evening of May 7, the SITA newswire reported.

“The damage committed through this action on the tank has not been calculated yet. The police are investigating this as a misdemeanour involving pro- perty,” Mária Faltániová, the Banská Bystrica police spokesperson, told SITA.

The unknown artists also hung woollen balls on the displayed armaments and barbed wire in addition to adding the new decorations to the tank. They left some posters in the park stating that their exhibition was called “Bum Game Over” and was directed against war and violence, the TASR newswire wrote.
