Nostalgia for the empire? Lithuanian Foreign Ministry surprised Soviet symbolism on Adidas products

94
Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius expressed bewilderment about the fact that the German concern Adidas is selling women's T-shirts with the inscription USSR (USSR), reports RIA News.


The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry, in its Twitter account, provided a link to the Adidas official website, where a red women's t-shirt with the USSR inscription and the emblem of the Soviet Union is presented for sale.

Nostalgia for the empire? Lithuanian Foreign Ministry surprised Soviet symbolism on Adidas products


There are still those who are sick of "nostalgia for the empire," but somehow it is unexpected that among them is the well-known concern @adidas,
wrote the minister.

Adidas AG, founded in 1924 by Adolf Dassler. Currently, it is one of the world leaders in the production of sports shoes, clothing and equipment.

Recall that in 2008, Lithuania adopted a law prohibiting the use, display and distribution of Soviet and Nazi symbols in crowded places. Her demonstration is allowed only in museums. Symbols can also be used "for scientific, artistic and educational purposes, and in antiques trade."

Failure to comply with the law entails administrative liability in the form of a fine from 144 to 289 euros.

          Those who buy this symbolism are either proud of their Soviet past, or consider it better than capitalism, or simply shock others.
          As for Adidas, nostalgia has nothing to do with it. There is a demand - there is a supply. This is just a business.

          The USSR was the most powerful state in the world. Mediocre rule in times of stagnation, a departure from the line of development that Great Stalin outlined, starting with Khrushchev, led to collapse. Tagged Judas surrendered the USSR to enemies, and the drunkard finished off. Bismarck about Russia:
          "The Russians cannot be defeated, we have seen this for hundreds of years. But the Russians can be instilled with false values ​​and then they will defeat themselves."

            I believe in another prediction of this political prophet:
            “Even the most successful outcome of the war will never lead to the collapse of Russia, which is supported by millions of Russian believers of the Greek faith. (meaning - Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, etc.) These latter, even if they are disconnected as a result of international treaties, will just as quickly reconnect with each other as separated droplets of mercury find their way to each other.

            Someday it will happen!

              No less interesting are other statements by Bismarck about Russia.
              • Preventive war against Russia - suicide due to fear of death.

              • Russia is dangerous by the meagerness of its needs.

              • Even the most favorable outcome of the war will never lead to the disintegration of the main power of Russia, which is based on millions of Russians.

              • Do not hope that once you take advantage of Russia's weakness, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come - do not rely on the Jesuit agreements that you have signed, supposedly justifying you. They are not worth the paper on which they are written. therefore with Russians it’s worth playing fair or not playing at all.

              • He, as always, with a diva smile on his lips and with an ice compress on his heart (about Chancellor of the Russian Empire Gorchakov).

              • Never fight with Russians. They will respond to each of your military tricks with unpredictable stupidity. laughing

              • Make alliances with anyone, unleash any war, but never touch the Russians.

              • Russians harness for a long time, but drive fast.

    One of the main problems of all post-Soviet republics is the presence in the power and political structures of people whom, by definition, should not be there because of the lack of not only relevant mental abilities, but the absence of such in general. It is possible that over time it will be possible to form worthy national elites, but so far this is a disaster.
    The current news is a prime example. Linkevičius is a classic Chukhonite who, by chance, was elevated to the ministers. Those who served in the Soviet army remember these guys perfectly, functioning under the motto "I am not a brake - I am a slow gas."

    Adidas released a women's summer dress for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The dress is made in the colors and symbols of the 1991 USSR national team, that is, the year when the USSR was successfully destroyed. Therefore, the release of such a dress would be worth the joy of chukhn, but the "late ignition" does not yet allow a correct assessment of the situation.

      Politics in the Union was not only sport, but stupid physical education, from which this sport later grew. In each yard there was a court, a sports club "bush" with a coach. From my yard, for example, the boy started on the court, grew up in the coach of the team playing now in the KHL. Everywhere in the forest park sports equipment was poked, in the school they "mercilessly" rushed for the TRP mercilessly, a sea of ​​free sections, right up to ski jumping (can you find one now?)! Among my friends and relatives there was no one who was not engaged. And this is the 70s. And I remember the glowing banner: Everyone's health is the property of the people. All poherili, alas, it is a fact. Capitalism however crying

      The joke is that in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania there was an official language - Old Slavonic - i.e. Russian. And the present Lithuanians then were not “Lithuanians” at all, and they were not the titular nation.

    Because the Germans, whoever says anything, are smart, highly educated and cultural PEOPLEwho honestly earn "your bread", besides, they manage, for own account contain the European "economy" (pigs, sprats are bred ...)
    That’s why they do whatwhat they consider necessary! But pigs, by nature, are supposed to call, sprats are silent!

    Her demonstration is allowed only in museums. Also, the symbolism can be used "for scientific, artistic and educational purposes and in antique trade."

    Yes, here are several legal options:
    1) Lithuania is a museum of the stupidity of small peoples, which so far exists only due to the former care of the endangered peoples in the USSR.
    2) Artistic and educational goals are also present. Civilization is not where Lithuania aspires to, but from where it fled on its own head.
    3) See paragraph 1. Museum of antiques is the place.

    They have no preferences and principles. Demand creates supply. Money doesn't smell. Recently I saw a TWO SPORTS OLYMPIC in the store, it really looks like tagda, blue, already overwhelmed with nostalgia, I come up - adidas. It was two years ago. They have been copying our sportswear for a long time.
