Over the years, we’ve seen far too many racist incidents involving European soccer fans. And unfortunately, we’ve got another one to add to the list.
According to The Guardian, the UEFA is currently investigating an incident that took place yesterday during a Champions League match between Dynamo Kiev and Chelsea. The Football Against Racism in Europe organization sent UEFA the video above, which appears to show a large group of Dynamo Kiev fans attacking four black men who were also at the match to support Dynamo Kiev. The black men are shown trying to escape the situation, while fans give chase.
It appears as though some fans were trying to help the men, but FARE wants the UEFA to take a close look at the video and, more importantly, to get to the bottom of what happened. As of right now, the names of the victims in the video haven’t been released, and it’s unclear what action law enforcement is planning to take.
Stay tuned for further details.
