Russian Ire At Ukraine Kit
Russia have hit out at the Euro 2020 Ukraine kit as it features a map of the Ukraine on the front which includes the Crimean peninsula, which Russia annexed in 2014, though the international community have not accepted the annexation. Russia have hit out at the kit, one MP calling it a “political provocation”. Though I would suggest it is not as provocative as invading and annexing someone else’s territory.
