Ukraine's Nazi militia training 'football hooligans' to interrupt England's Euro games.

London, Apr 28( ANI ): Neo-Nazi paramilitaries are clandestinely training football hooligans to inflict mayhem during Ukraine's Euro 2012 match against England.

An investigation by The Sun has filmed members of extreme right-wing militia 'The Patriot of Ukraine', as it drilled thugs in unarmed combat, knife fighting and use of rifles and pistols at a secret camp.

One of those football hooligans boasted about how they planned to riot and hurl racist abuse at black England stars such as Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole.Of course we will boo your black players. There will be fighting too. Why should we apologise for it?" he said.

The group's leaders said the hooligans were seen as "foot soldiers" that would proclaim their contemptible message of racial hatred to the world during Euro 2012.

All three of England's group matches are in the Ukraine, which is jointly hosting the tournament with Poland. The Patriots, whose 3,500 members run illegal military training camps, teach the thugs fighting skills and offer "education" in their ideology.

In return the hooligans agree to chant white supremacist slogans from the stands and swell the Patriots' ranks at anti-immigration rallies on the streets. ( ANI )
