“We won thanks to the Russian language”: the Russian Federation tried to cling to the success of the Ukrainian national team
Russian football commentator Dmitry Guberniev suggested that the Ukrainian national team defeated Sweden during the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020, allegedly thanks to the Russian language.
He expressed this opinion on his Telegram channel.
“ Oh, the great and mighty Russian language! On which the famous Ukrainian football player and coach Andriy Shevchenko gives instructions to the wards! .. The Russian language is the creator of Ukrainian football success, “wrote Guberniev.
At the same time, he did not specify why the Russian language did not help the Russian national team at the European Championship, which could not even get out of the group.
However, the constant attempts of Russians to appropriate other people’s achievements, territories and history are no longer surprising.
During the match with the Swedes, the Ukrainian footballers won with a score of 2: 1, thanks to which they reached the quarterfinals of the European Championship, where they will meet with the England national team.
