Euro 2020: The political guide to the European soccer championships
Whats in a shirt? For Russia and Ukraine, its decades of history, memory and political strife. Earlier this week, Russian soccer officials delivered a complaint to UEFA authorities after Ukraine unveiled its tournament jersey, which depicts a map of the country and the slogans Glory to Ukraine! and Glory to the heroes! The Russians were irked by the nationalist chant, as well as the presence of a map of Crimea the peninsular territory that Russia unilaterally annexed in 2014 and said the use of such political motives was in violation of UEFA regulations.
