On March 8 at ru-wiki we've noticed that in thousands of articles "Russia" was changed to "mainkra". Vandalism was reverted in less than 1 hour, but due to slow updates, a lot of people saw it (more details here: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?diff=646475970)
It appears that wd admins are not willing to issue indefinite (or even long) semi-protection even for "the most common items since many contributors in the projects are not autoconfirmed on Wikidata and will not be able to add new articles if needed".
Can we provide an ability to protect labels/descriptions/statements separately from sitelinks?
