Greek football fans remember Odessa martyrs

February 15 Greek football fans counteracted Ukrainian fascists. Greece has strong anti-fascist trends in football fan movement, while racists and far right completely occupied Ukrainian stadiums.

Greek fans from the Antifa Block of AEK team hung out for the match AEK – Dynamo banner of this content:
“Odessa 02.05.2014 – Never forget, never forgive!
Solidarity with anti-fascist resistance in Ukraine and in the Donbas!
– AEK Antifa Blok »
On the other banner is written in Russian: “1942 – Start, 2018 – D Kiev. You do not respect your story yourself.”
This banner refers to the legendary Death Match played in the Nazi-occupied Kiev in the summer of 1942 between local and German teams. Most of the Ukrainian players favored the club of Dynamo Kyiv. Some time after this game, a number of football players were put in concentration camps, and some were shot.
On other banners the following slogans were written:
“Love AEK, hate racism!”
“Kick the fascists out of football!”
Unfortunately, the legendary Dynamo Kiev team, once a pride of Soviet Ukraine, is now controlled by fascists and fans of the KKK. Their ultras became notorious for their Nazi salutes, swastikas, white sheets of the KKK and racist attacks on the “non-whites”.
All this is well known abroad, and for those who did not know, the hooligans of the Dynamo helped them find out when they attacked the Russian-speaking people who were accidentally met in the center of Athens before the match.
