Ukrainians ignored Sokolov

Players of the mini-football club Hit (Kyiv) refused to shake hands with Russian Anton Sokolov before the Champions League match against Sporting. Our compatriots defiantly ignored the representative of the national team of the aggressor country.

The meeting took place on October 25 and ended in a 2-2 draw. During the traditional pre-match greeting, Kyiv residents did not shake hands with the Russian, reminding him of his country's crimes against Ukraine. In response, Sporting's players refused to shake hands after the match, and the team's coach took his teammates to the locker room immediately after the final siren.
