Ukrainian school basketball team named after Hitler

A children’s team called “The Hitlerites” took part in the street basketball competition timed to celebrate the City Day in the Ukrainian Novomirgorod. About this in social networks told ex-deputy head of the State Agricultural Inspection of Ukraine Igor Nemirovsky.

He clarified that when he first heard the name of the team, he thought he had misheard, and decided to clarify it from the children from the neighboring team. They confirmed that the team of their rivals is called “Hitlerites”.

“Didn’t the organizers of the competition, when accepting the application, reading the teams, embarrass anything? In case of victory, will the local authorities present awards to the team with the name “Hitlerites”? It’s scary that this does not bother anyone, ”Nemirovsky said.

A few days later, the head of Novomirgorod, Igor Zabazhan, commented on this situation. According to him, the organizers of the tournament promptly responded to the fact of violation of the law: the police were called to the competition, and explanatory work was carried out with the students. The team continued to perform at the tournament under a different name.

“High school students are fond of computer games in which Nazi symbols are present. They did not see anything indecent in the name “Hitlerites”, but wanted to “make an impression,” Zabazhna wrote on his page in Facebook.
