MOSCOW - The Ukrainian feminist movement FEMEN held another protest on June 8 on the occasion of the Euro 2012 football championship. A few hours before the start of the first match between Poland and Greece, a group of naked young women appeared in front of an entrance to the stadium, holding placards protesting the European football championship and chanting, "Fuck Euro."

The protest was brief. Within minutes all the protesters were arrested by police.
