A large-scale flashmob in support of Croats Domagoj Vida and Ognjen Vukojevic who dedicated the victory of their team in World Cup match to Ukraine started on Facebook page of the International Football Federation (FIFA).
Thousands of users started writing messages on the page in support of Croatian footballers. Most of the messages were "Glory to Ukraine!" in different languages.
Also, users began to put one ‘star’ out of five in the FIFA evaluation, which is a poor mark.
Currently, the organization's page has 236 thousand reviews, of which 149 thousand are with one ‘star’. The overall rating of the page became 1.4 ‘stars’.
Only during half an hour, the page received about 5 thousand new comments.
As it was reported earlier, on July 7, after Croatia’s win against Russian team, Vida and team’s coach Ognjen Vukojević posted a video, where the player chants ‘Glory to Ukraine’ and Vukojević says: “This win is for Dynamo and for Ukraine. Go, Croatia!”
Ukrainian Embassy in the United Kingdom reacted to the publications of British media that writing about events around Croatia’s football player Domagoj Vida, called the slogan ‘Glory to Ukraine’ nationalistic.
We would like to remind TheSun & Independent that "Slava Ukraini" means "Glory to Ukraine"- a patriotic expression like "viva la France","long live the Queen","Let Poland be Poland". Will you call those who chant these phrases nationalists&boo them?" Ukrainian diplomats wrote.
