First victims of Polish EURO:
Quote:
Polish thugs attack English-speaking and Russian-speaking fans
  • About 50 hooligans punch and kick foreign supporters at a pub in Lodz, Poland
  • Masked thugs targeted fans speaking English and Russian
Witnesses to the violence said masked men pulled up in cars next to a pub and attacked anyone in sight, throwing punches and kicks. The attackers were described as young men wearing club colours of local team LKS Lodz. 'When they started to hit out, we fled inside,' one victim said. 'We barricaded the entrance.

'Some of us remained outside, and they got the brunt of the attack.' Two men were injured in the attack, which happened last night. 'They forced two younger men to the ground, with multiple attackers starting to punch and kick them,' a Polish witness said. 'It was a horrible sight. I fumbled for my phone and called the police. 'They were lying motionless on the pavement. I thought they were dead.

'After a couple of minutes, one of them started to get up, and then the second. I was very relieved.' The thugs appeared to target foreigners, and the owner of the pub refused to press charges out of fear for retaliation attacks. Before the incident, the visitors were reported to be talking and chanting in English and Russian.

Football tournaments of this amplitude are bound to attract hooligans. I remember when England lost to Portugal during UEFA Euro 2004. Virtually every Portuguese immigrant in my town had the s**t beaten out of him by drunken chavs. Then the newly arrived E.European immigrants joined in (presumably because it looked ‘fun’) and the whole thing escalated into a mini Anglo-Polish vs. Portuguese riot. If the same thing happened in Poland, the BBC would have a field day. As it didn’t, it was barely reported.

Let's be clear about one thing - the British media spent most of the 70's, 80's and 90's sensationalizing, seeking out and even provoking hooliganism by English football "supporters", just so that they could have a juicy story to report. Bad news sells.

So let's not try to suggest that the British media is out to get foreigners while overlooking transgressions by Brits. Nothing could be further from the truth.

That said, I do wish that the media from all countries - not just Britain - would give Poland and Ukraine a chance to host a fantastic Euro Champs before starting up with all these scare stories. Let's not assume the worst before it has even happened.

Looks great, specially Kiev and its Stadium, they look fantastic!
Does anyone know the local prices I am looking for: beer, lodging, hookers and WiFi areas?

We know that Jaroslaw Kaczynski - brother of Lech Kaczynski which died in this plane crash is extremely angry on Russians and he blames them about this crash.

And we know that he is wrong.

But no one can stop him from mourning and honouring his died brother. We are free country and we can only talk with him or ignore him.

Unfortunately there are some people that don't like Russians - for various reasons. And they are trying to connect Smolensk with their hate to Russians.

I understand Russians. They are proud and they simple want to have fun on Euro.
But I also understand Kaczynski (understand doesn't mean accept).

So, if you want to stay calm, there is a simple way to this. Ingnore each other.

Please Russians do not try to provoke. And don't let to be provoked.

Enjoy Euro and silently ignore these anti-russian people. Majority of Poles are friendly to Russians and want to have good relations with them.

Fortunately we are free country and some our citizens can have different opinion.
Treat this as a value not as defect. And try to respect anyone. Until no one is aggresive everything will be OK.
I don't understand the hate between the Slavic peoples, you should be more polite with each other, is just a good opportunity for fun and sport.
From what I have seen, personally, I think both countries tried to do their best, we do not forget that both of them are former Communist countries with many economic and life quality issues, but is good that UEFA gave them this opportunity!
