Flashmob called 54 took place at the Euro 2024 qualifing Ukraine-North Macedonia match
Volunteers Dmytro Dubas and Mykola Vasylkov organized a flashmob called "54" at the Euro 2024 qualifying match between Ukraine and North Macedonia, which was the number of years that passed between the Soviet Union's invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 and the start of the 2022 war between Russia and Ukraine.
In the 54th minute, volunteers from the Restavrator. Potato Army headquarters and two Ukrainian sectors held a flashmob, raising banners with the number 54 above their heads.
"54 is a symbolic number. So many years have passed since the Soviet aggression against Czechoslovakia. Now it is Russian aggression against Ukraine. Half a century and the enemy is still not punished. The flash mob is done to pay respect for the Czech Republic, while number 54 is a symbol of the unity of our peoples," Vasylkov said.
The flash mob was organized as a sign of solidarity between the Czech and Ukrainian peoples in this difficult historical time.
