Ultras of the Wroclaw-based Szlensk soccer club hung anti-Ukrainian banners at the home match against Zaglembe (1:2). The incident happened in the second round of the Polish championship in Ekstraklasa.
Fans unfolded stretching banners where it was written "Stop the Ukrainianization of Poland", "Ukrainians muzzled children in Volyn", "80 years of shameful silence for Volyn". Several posters with foul language against the UPA and Stepan Bandera were also caught on camera.
It should be noted that on September 9, it is in Wroclaw at the stadium "Schlenska" Ukraine national soccer team will play its Euro 2024 qualifying match against England.
Recall that in October last year, the ultras of Shlenska were already caught up in a similar scandal. At the home match of the 11th round of the national championship against Varta (0:2), they hung an anti-Ukrainian banner.
Earlier, Szlensk was fined 15,000 zlotys (~3200 euros) for its fans displaying a banner that read "This is not our war". The banner also featured a crossed-out Ukrainian trident on a red-and-black background.
