The Russian Football Union appeals to UEFA because of the uniform of the Ukrainian national team for Euro 2020, which depicts Crimea

he Russian Football Union sent an appeal to UEFA because of the uniform of the Ukrainian national team that will be used at Euro 2020.

The RFU communications service explained that in the letter they “drew attention to the use of political motives in the form of the Ukrainian national team,” noting that this violates the UEFA principles prohibiting political speech. 

Football is a sport that should always remain out of politics. In our opinion, by agreeing on such a form, UEFA is setting a precedent, because already at the next major tournament we can see attempts by other countries to use their equipment for political statements.

The contour of the territory of the country, which includes the Crimea, is depicted on the  uniform of the Ukrainian national team. In addition, the T-shirts bear the slogan “Glory to Ukraine – Glory to Heroes!”

Russian deputies and diplomats criticized the form, seeing it as politicizing and demanded that UEFA respond to it. On June 7, UEFA itself officially announced that the uniform did not violate the regulations.

Crimea became part of Russia in 2014 following a referendum held on the peninsula. The vast majority of countries in the world did not recognize its results. Because of this, the European Union, the United States and some other countries have imposed sanctions against Russia.

    With time – since 2014 as a matter of fact – mafia land has outed itself as a kindergarten. There too, crying is a daily thing. If the IMF had anything like pride and balls, they would tell them to shut up or get out. No, they would not allow this cheating piece of shit country to participate in the first place. Now, they have to deal with crybabies who cannot face reality.

    Ukraine uses a internationally recognised map, and slogans that originated over 100 years ago. Muscovy uses different equipment for political statements, the end result is death and destruction from the only true nazi state in the world.
