On May 10, a spontaneous protest broke out in Riga's Victory Park after city officials used a bulldozer to remove the flowers left at the park's Monument to the Liberators of Riga. Residents who were upset by the authorities' actions started bringing new flowers to the monument, and a crowd formed. The impromptu gathering, which included demonstrations of Russian symbols and Soviet songs, spurred outrage among other residents -- and the country's leaders.
