Agent provocateurs vandalized the 1956 Revolution Memorial in the Spanish capital - informed Hungarian Ambassador to Spain Enikő Győri the Hungarian News Agency on Wednesday.

Ambassador Győri expressed her profound dismay over the politically motivated vandalism, which was carried out at the dawn of the Hungarian National Holiday.

The memorial was unveiled five months ago, on the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Revolution and War of Independence by Ambassador Győri and Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena.

The embassy will file a criminal complaint with Spanish police said Ambassador Győri.

In Spain, the ruling conservative People's Party (PP) also condemned the politically motivated vandalism.

Extreme left-wing organization called Yesca Libre Catilla took responsibility for the criminal act. The organization published images of the damaged memorial on several social networking sites; the memorial was smeared with red paint.
