The bones of 2015 Bulgarian soldiers who died for the liberation of Yugoslavia at the final phase of the Second World War rest at the Ledena Stena ossuary. The Serbian authorities condemned the desecration of the monument and pointed out that this act of vandalism was discordant with the excellent relations between the two countries.
