Hungarian police have stated that vandals have spray-painted the walls of the Serbian Orthodox church and a memorial plaque of Serbian writer Jakov Ignjatović in the last two days.

Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) priest in Budapest Father Zoran told Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) on Friday night that the graffiti had been painted on the church, among others “Death to Chetniks”. He said that graffiti saying “Go back to your Serbia” were painted on the memorial plaque and on the walls of the Serbian school, adding that flyers with similar texts were handed out in the town.

MTI stressed that the investigation was underway. SPC Budapest Eparchy’s headquarters is located in Szentendre.

Serbian museum, library and archive are also located in the town and they are of utmost importance for the remaining Serbs in Szentendre.

Serbs first came to Szentendre during the Great Serb Migration in 1690, led by Serbian Patriarch Arsenije Čarnojević.
