On Thursday evening, Ecco’s headquarters in Tønder in southern Denmark was vandalized ahead of Friday’s anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
A stone plinth near the headquarters was draped in the colors of the Ukrainian flag.
Under the cloak, a series of large ‘Z’s’ – the symbol of the Russian army during the invasion – were discovered. .
“We are of course investigating whether it is politically motivated,” says deputy police inspector in South and South Jutland Police, Henning Marcussen, according to DR.
Remains in Russia
Ecco’s attack was premeditated, as the shoe manufacturer remains one of the last Danish companies to continue its activities in Russia.
The company has been heavily criticized for its choice by Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and the Danish royal family, which last year withdrew its patronage.
In August, a store in Copenhagen was also vandalized.
Currently, police have no suspects and are appealing for witnesses.
