NO, THE UKRAINIANS DID NOT ARRIVE AT THE WORLD CUP AND WERE NOT ARRESTED: The scandal that brought Russia to its feet

The WORLD football championship is in full swing in Qatar, and according to leading Russian journalists, “the first scandal happened” on it, but it turned out that this is not true.

Ukrainian nationalists – more and more young people

Some of the most popular journalists of the Russian Federation, such as Vladimir Soloviev, announced on their Telegram channels the news that “Ukrainian fans were arrested at the World Cup, who promoted Nazi ideology immediately after arriving in Qatar.”

Solovyeva is followed by more than a million people on the mentioned social network, so it is not surprising that many others shared this news. Which, it turned out later, was false.

Telegram / Soloviev

Namely, in this video information, a recording allegedly made by the Al-Jazeera television company was broadcast, in which the following is stated:

– Ukrainian football fans were arrested in Qatar – begins the report, which you can also see, and continues with the following words:

– Three drunk Ukrainians were spreading nationalist ideology. They were taken to jail when they wrote the Nazi salute (“zig heil”) and drew a “Hitler mustache” on the Qatar 2022 World Cup mascot, Laib.

– Before the arrest, Ukrainian fans managed to destroy more than ten posters. During the apprehension, they did not resist, and at the moment they are still behind bars – the mentioned television reported.

However, Al Jazeera television did not broadcast that report at all, but it was a video montage that, knowingly or unknowingly, was also broadcast by Vladimir Soloviev to his many followers, which then spread around the world and ended up on numerous other social networks, including on portal “Novosti”, as information from the Russian media.

A few hours after the mass publication of this news, the truth was established, and hence this correction of our original publication.

Let us also remind you, as we have already reported, that Ukraine is not participating in this World Cup, and not because of the mere fact that a war is taking place on its territory. It was Russia who, by FIFA’s decision, was kicked out of the finals of the qualifiers (they were supposed to play against Poland in the semi-finals of their group in the play-off, but were suspended), and Ukraine was given a chance. However, after the semi-final victory over Scotland (1:3), they lost in the key match for qualification to the World Cup against Wales with 1:0.

The Serbian national team is playing at the World Cup, and that’s the first match – against Brazil. It is on the program on Thursday from 20:00 CET.

And that match, like all others, you can follow live with the portal “Novosti”, in the section “Qatar 2022” plenty of material from the World Cup is already waiting for you.
