England kick off their Euro 2012 campaign in Ukraine next month despite fears that visitors of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent risk being attacked by a Nazi mob.

While England stars like Ashley Young are sadly used to receiving vile racist abuse in Eastern Europe from 'fans', the Foreign Office have warned supporters to take extra care.

Secret right-wing training camps have been filmed taking place outside Kiev as 'Patriots' prepare for the 'war against immigrants'. Here CHRIS RODGERS reports on the disturbing situation - just 13 days before England's campaign gets under way.

Nothing more hilarious than people of the Slavic race pretending to be Caucasian and saluting the man who absolutely despised people of the Slavic race. It's actually pretty sad, I think they must have some sort of inferiority complex. Can someone also inform them that the Celtic cross represents the CELTIC/Anglo-Saxon race, which the Slavic race is completely separate from. These poor people, so uneducated that they don't know any better. Can the EU increase their funding to public education?

No words can describe how ridiculous and blown out of proportion this piece of pseudo-journalism is. Obviously, they want to be noticed to get a little fame and fortune. If you have spent time in Ukraine and Britain, you know very well that it is much safer being black in Ukraine than it is to be one of the dwindling number of whites in Britain.

GH, Actually on October 23, 1994 the CBS &quot;60 Minutes&quot; television network broadcast presented to coincide with the first official visit to North America by a President of free Ukraine with a fourteen minute program titled &quot;The Ugly Face of Freedom&quot; with host Morley Safer, produced by Jeffrey Fager. The program wove an astonishing documentary about Western Ukraine of the day with a combination of footage from then and also World War II. In the interests of sensational reporting the CBS program cultivated a strong bias against Ukraine that is still evident. Safer’s first large distortion said that &quot;Ukraine is a nation that barely acknowledges its part in Hitler’s final solution&quot; insinuating that Ukraine collaborated with Hitler in the final solution. In fact, however, Ukraine had no government, so Ukraine could not be a collaborator. The Museum of World War II in the capital Kyiv has a simple marble slab which states: &quot;In 1940 in Ukraine lived 41.3 million people. In 1945 - 27.4 million people.&quot; Nevertheless the disinformation continues.
