Photo: Ukrainian soccer fans dress up in KKK outfits outside of opponent’s bus

A group of Ukrainian soccer fans dressed up in Ku Klux Klan outfits and lined up in front of the bus of Shakhtar – a rival club that features several black players on its roster.

James Ellingworth, a sports correspondent for RIA Novosti/R-Sport in Moscow, explains that these individuals likely decided to wear KKK gear and fly a Confederate flag because any use of Nazi paraphernalia is illegal in the Ukraine.

It’s disturbing to think that in 2013 the world is still dealing with acts like this.
