BULGARIA, Sofia : A picture taken in Sofia on August 21, 2013, shows the figures of Soviet soldiers at the base of the Soviet Army monument, painted by an unknown artist in cheeky pink facelift to decry the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia on August 20-21, 1968. The massive bronze relief sculpture depicting nine Soviet army soldiers was flamboyantly painted pink overnight and adorned with captions “Prague ‘68” and “Bulgaria apologises.” As part of the so-called Warsaw Pact, Bulgarian troops took part in the 1968 Soviet invasion of the former Czechoslovakia that crushed the Prague Spring reformist uprising in the country.
