The event was held by Ukrainians living in Sweden. The action was performed in the place all the fans were going through heading to the stadium. Some Russian fans tried to prevent Ukrainians and started a broil, but the fans were pushed by the Stockholm police. "We said no to Russian troops in Ukraine and to the World Cup in Russia. We stood up for our values - peace and democracy in Ukraine, despite numerous threats and insults from the Russian fans," organizers said on their page on Facebook.
Several Russian news media said that it was Ukrainians arranged a provocation against fans from Russia.
However, the Russian news media have ignored the fact that their fans have brought a DPR flag to Sweden.
Later, one of the fans tried to hang a DPR terrorists flag at the stadium in the sector of Russian fans and then a fight broke out.
