Ukraine asks Adidas to drop its controversial USSR-inspired uniform
Journal Staff Report

KYIV, May 8 Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance (UINR) asked subsidiary Adidas Ukraine not to sell produce with symbols of the communist totalitarian regime in Ukraine's territory and reminded that Soviet propaganda is banned in Ukraine under the law on condemning the communist and national-socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes.

A copy of the respective letter signed by UINR Director Volodymyr Viatrovych was posted on the institute's website. This is a reaction to reports about the availability of Adidas sportswear with the image of the Soviet state arms and the inscription 'USSR,' which stands for the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, on the eve of the World Cup.
