Some 49 headstones were knocked over and damaged at the St. Michael Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery in Dundalk last week, church officials said, just as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was about to begin. Baltimore County Police are investigating the vandalism, said Sgt. Gladys L. Brown, a spokeswoman for the department. Brown could not immediately say whether the incident is being investigated as a hate crime, but the timing is difficult to ignore, said cemetery administrator Stephen Humeniuk.
