Ukraine national football team shirt embroidered with a drawing of its borders including the Crimea region annexed by Russia

A new logo on the Ukraine national football team’s shirt has caused outrage in Moscow.

Surrounding the emblem are lines depicting a map of Ukraine, including Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014.

Ukraine revealed the shirt of its national football team participating in the European Championship 2020, which is scheduled to start on June 11, and while the map of the country appears on the front of the shirt, the phrase “Glory to Ukraine” is embroidered on the back.

Russia has considered Crimea since 2014 part of its territory, amid international rejection.
