Tensions have been high between neighboring Poland and Russia. Authorities were worried about possible confrontations before and after today’s match. Boy did they have reason to worry alright. Fox News reports:
“Polish riot police were seen dragging people off as Polish fans chanted: “Russia whores, Russia whores” and “Hit the red trash with a hammer, with a sickle.”
Some Poles displayed a banner saying, “Polish President murdered in Russia,” referring to a plane crash in Russia two years ago that killed Poland’s president and 95 others.”
Unfortunately no one was here to stop this quick skirmish. Rubber bullets and tear gas can’t stop these groups from fighting.
