The Russian Football Union (RFU) sent a letter to UEFA, in which he “drew attention to the political slogan” on the new uniform of the Ukrainian national team. UEFA said that the slogan used by the protesters during the Revolution of Dignity inside the jersey is “clearly political in nature”.
The first part of the slogan “Glory to Ukraine!” As was expected, Gazprom’s friends in UEFA made some concessions and banned the inscription “Glory to Heroes” on the uniform of the Ukrainian national team. A trifle, but unpleasant.
Against the background of the hysterical reaction that the new design of the uniform of the Ukrainian national football team provoked in the Kremlin and in the propaganda media, Russian footballers were also offered to update their uniforms before Euro 2020 and on it they could “show off” references to the war in Ukraine and Georgia.
