Police are investigating vandalism at a Ukrainian Catholic cemetery near Baltimore on Feb. 23 that left 49 headstones overturned.
The incident took place in the early morning hours, the day before Russia invaded Ukraine.
“It’s very unfortunate,” the cemetery administrator, Stephen Humeniuk, told CNA on Monday, Feb. 28.
Humeniuk said that there are several cemeteries in the area, including one right next door. However, St. Michael Ukrainian Catholic Church Cemetery in Dundalk, Maryland, an unincorporated community in Baltimore County, was the only cemetery vandalized, Humeniuk said.
