Yes. This is a crime. I eager to see the memorial of German fallen soldiers who took part in massacres in Ukraine. Baby yar .
I believe its next to the Memorial to the Brave Soviet NKVD who did the Katyn Massacre....

hi,
German war memorials were sites of both political conflict and personal mourning. Monumental displays of revanchism caused much controversy, but they were not prevalent. A nation without a national war memorial, Weimar Germany, was also one of the few European societies without a symbolic grave of the Unknown Soldier.

The 1919 peace treaty is a good point.
I saw the 1914/1919 version in some places for example in Germany and France.
For 1945 we must assume another logic, because the WW II peace treaty wasn't signed
