Violent clashes took place on June 11 between English and Russian hooligans in Marseille. (On June 14, in a brazen political maneouvre, EUFA arbitrarily levied Russia with a suspended disqualification and €150,000 fine as French authorities set to deport up to 50 Russian fans.

Only in Europe? The USA, Canada and Ukraine were the sole countries in the world that voted in November against the United Nations anti-Nazi resolution condemning the glorification of National Socialism and Nazi collaboration. Both the USA and Canada are the only two countries to send armed forces to assist the Kiev regime, including hundreds of “military advisers” to a Ukrainian army that now officially incorporates Neo-Nazi armed battalions.
Both Washington and Ottawa have received their fascist representatives at the highest level (see photo, below).
