This time
Ukrainians have seen pleasant soothsaying in the old yet mute Soviet cartoon
about three cossacks. The series of cartoons about the three heroes consists of
nine short parts. The second part in the series, called “How the cossacks
played football,” was produced in 1970 and tells the story about three friends
who came back from abroad, gathered a team of cossacks and taught them to play
football.

 Ukraine’s brave
defenders decided to give up on fighting, left their weapons at home and went
to conquer the world with their football talents.

 “Just like
the modern Ukrainian soccer team,” might think Ukrainians who watched the
nation team beat Sweden 2-1 on July 11. Ukrainian media, including Ukrayinska
Pravda, BBC Ukraine and some central TV channels, have gone with the news that
the cossacks’ first contenders were Swedes.
