Fans call CSKA's congratulations to Soloviev "disgrace" and "rock bottom"
The Kontinental Hockey League champion CSKA has embarrassed itself with its birthday greetings to Vladimir Soloviev. The Moscow club posted a real ode to the propagandist on its website and received a bunch of unflattering comments from fans.
CSKA called Soloviev "one of the best journalists in the country" and wished him well.
"Your programs are watched by millions of fellow citizens, to whom you tell the whole truth about what is happening in our country and the world every day. Your reports are discussed and quoted, and any journalist dreams of achieving the same skill in the profession," the text reads.
Fans called this passage a "disgrace," admitting that they were ashamed of their favorite club.
"CSKA is an amazing club that will always find a way to find a double and even triple bottom", "Shameful. They could have just kept quiet like everyone else", "What a shame, uhhhh. They hit a rock bottom," they wrote online.
Users wonder how the team will rehabilitate itself later, calling Soloviev a "disgusting personality."
"I'm wondering how they're going to clean up after this," one comment reads.
Fans remind Soloviev of his promise to go to Israel to fight.
"In 2004, in one of his interview, Soloviev promised to go to defend Israel if a war broke out there. Maybe all his reports and promises have the same price," the Russians mock.
