Moreover, this regulation’s mayor cons are pointed out which result from imprecise usage of terms of legal language for drafting this regulation’s provisions. Consequently, this regulation hardly can be applied, therefore it does not protect monuments as effective as it should be, as it was intended by the Legislator.
