Default "Little green football fans" in France

Moderator adds

Few doubt the violence unleashed by Russian "fans" in France in the last few days, during the Euro 2016, with the prospect of more. Now whether as some suggest it is those "little green men" pursuing 'hybrid warfare' is a moot point.

This thread will continue in a moment a number of posts that appear, thanks to Outlaw09 in a Ukraine thread (ends).

If you do not think for a moment that sports is not part and parcel of the Russian non linear warfare used to support their political war against the West especially the US....think again....

Russian propaganda is justifying / even PROUD of violence of Russian fans at the #EURO2016.
https://life.ru/t/%D1%81%D0%BF%D0%BE...gho_miedviedia

LIFE title page...."Drama in Marseille port...what it means to awaken Russian Bear!"

There are around 10.000 reasons why #Russia should NOT be allowed to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
#RUS hooligans are not one of them.

RU hooligans is an endearing Russian term for simply..neo Nazi"s BUT WAIT there cannot possibly be any neo Nazi"s in Russia after WW2 can there?????

HOW often have we heard Putin use the term "provoked" MAYBE a 1000 times since Crimea....

In the face of massive social media carried video footage showing Russians "provoked" and brutally beat UK fans....

Russian media now: Yes, ours attacked, but we were provoked.
Where did I hear that before?!https://life.ru/t/%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2..._poslie_matcha

The Moscow Times ‏@MoscowTimes
An English fan is attacked by three men at the England vs. #Russia football match in Marseille. #EURO2016

First it was doping for the Russian toss out and now thus.....they cannot seem to keep their own "neo Nazi's in line"......

Guardian: #UEFA opens case against #Russia but not England after #EURO2016 violence

The leading #Russia|n thug pumps up the thugs attacking English fans on the terraces last night
https://twitter.com/RobPulseNews/sta...82647166115840

UEFA: "We will not hesitate to impose further sanctions".
Interesting considering threats #RUS hooligans already made against #POL #UKR


FAMOUS saying ......."Sports is just another form of Russian combat"
BTW...this saying is not far from the truth is it....???

Russian #EURO2016 'fans' in #Marseilles. T-shirts read 'we are born for war' (Via @golub)

Russia is racist??...come on....just look at the massive blog comments pointed at Ukraine for the last two years....

Rus is angry that UEFA match delegate/officials made the allegation of racist chanting during match against #Eng in Marseille yesterday

Stocky guys, organised, in disguise, accompanied by false news feeds. Looks planned in advance.

MORE attempts by a Muslim to explain to other Muslims the "ritual of soccer".....

In European culture, taking off your shirt when drunk is a pre-battle religious ritual that symbolizes martyrdom

FINALLY a small amount of "truth" comes out of Moscow......

Russian TV admits: "Not only did Russian fans bring fireworks into the stands, which is forbidden, they broke through to the English fans.."

Well the "truth" got suddenly lost.......again....

The latest from the Moscow propaganda machine this morning is that in reality all those Russian soccer fans were really just Ukrainian Nazi's disguised as Russian fans wanting to damage the image of Russian sportsmanship.....

Finally, "that were not us" by RU media! "[#Marseiile] clashes organized by Ukrainian Nazis, pretending Russians"
http://archive.is/xyfzb

AND this is not non linear warfare....??

Ukrainian and German fans clash in Lille before the start of the match (video)
http://uatoday.tv/sport/ukrainian-an...eo-671645.html

Some are actually saying that a number of the so called Germans involved were actually ethnic Russians with dual citizenship. WHICH if one believes Russian propaganda no Russian is now allowed to hold a foreign passport at the same they hold a Russian passport.

Appears now that there were "little green GRU Spetsnaz men" hard at work as "vacationing fans"...where have we heard the term "vacationers" before...oh those Russian military that took a vacation and drove their tanks into eastern Ukraine 2014.....they were quite simply "on a holiday"....

BBC News - 150 Russians 'behind' Euro 2016 violence - "these are extremely well-trained people"
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-36515213

150 makeup a solid GRU Spetsnaz Bn.......

Russian MP Igor Lebedev praises Russian fans and blames French police for the violence.

French prosecutors say 150 Russians were behind the Marseille violence. I say it's one Russian.....Putin......

Forewarned by FSB.....?????
BREAKING 150 'well-trained' Russian #EURO2016 hooligans escaped arrest: Marseille prosecutor: @AFP

Amazing restraint shown by Ukrainian football fans as Graham Phillips tries to goad them into violence.
https://www.facebook.com/oleshkomiro...type=2&theater

Graham Phillips is a former UK Russia Today reporter who worked for the Russian military news channel in eastern Ukraine and was in and around a number of ongoing mercenary war crimes......torturing and then killing of UAF POWs....AND yet the UK does nothing against him for supporting and contributing to terrorism.

Close friends with the Russian FSB....

Now getting interesting for Russia ...fined 150K euros and placed on suspended disqualification if any further hooligan activity occurs....THEN TWO Russian neo Nazi's just attacked two female UK fans just walking down the street and were immediately arrested by the French......

Couldn't agree more. These were not fans but sober MMA professionals who came to provoke a fight and attack England fans. More tough guy showmanship...

Sports is just "war" with another name..........

Lavrov: Detention of Russian 'fans' unacceptable.
Those 'fans' are state-organised people, maybe even some of the off.#EURO2016 delegation.


When one of those so called official Russian delegates is in fact a leading Russian neo Nazi/fascist.....then maybe Lavrov needs to rethink his statement.

Maybe a new Russian prelude to "rescuing an oppressed Russian speaking population" recently discovered to be residing in France.....

BUT WAIT the Russian "invasion" sorry wrong PC word...."incursion".... to free their oppressed fellow Russian speaking countrymen might just be around the corner.....

Interesting that a Ukrainian commenter called this correctly just after the first major fighting of the Russian ultra group...that they had fought in eastern Ukraine as mercenaries.....

Russian ultra's in France also nationalists fighting with Donbas separatists = Russian intelligence knew of them
