In Ukraine, in the city of Novomirgorod, a children's team called “The Hitlerites” took part in street basketball competitions during the celebration of the city day. Igor Nemirovsky, the former deputy head of the State Agricultural Inspection of Ukraine, drew attention to this on his Facebook page.
According to him, when he first heard the judges announce the name of the team, the man thought he had just misheard.
– I asked the guys from the neighboring team. They confirmed with a laugh that the name of the team was “Hitlerites” … Really, the organizers of these competitions were not embarrassed by anything? Representatives of the City Council, who are present there, will hand over certificates and prizes to the “Hitlerites” team ?! – wrote Nemirovsky in his post.
The ex-official also noted that despite the presence of police officers and a full square of people and guests of the tournament at the sporting event, no one was embarrassed by the name of the schoolchildren's team.
