Crimea on Ukraine’s jersey for the European football championships, Russia protests with UEFA

The imposition of the organization that manages football in Europe, on the eve of the opening of the European football tournament. The disputed mention “Glory to our heroes” was unanimously considered political after the protests of Russia. “After a more in-depth analysis”, this slogan chanted during the anti-Russian popular uprising in Maidan in 2014 is “clearly of a political nature” and “must therefore be withdrawn (…) in view of the official UEFA matches”, Uefa said.

Russia said it was “satisfied” with UEFA’s decision, commented the foreign ministry in Moscow.
