I don’t think that thevRussian secret service organized the attacks by Russian football fans in Europe, like the Guardian suggests. Pigs will be pigs without any governmental involvement. But the gleeful reaction of both the Russian authorities and the general public in Russia is disgusting.
The Russian authorities may not have organized the attacks but they have been fostering an environment of hatred towards Europeans for years, and now we are seeing a result. Football fans are always rowdy and obnoxious, yes, but when they put a person in a coma and a society erupts in cheering, there’s something wrong with that picture.
