Nationalist trouble at Euro 2012

Ukrainian nationalists in the Ukraine are gearing up to cause trouble at the upcoming Euro 2012 football tournament. It will be hosted in the Ukraine and Poland. Ukrainian football hooligans are receiving "military-style" training in anticipation of the football games in their country. They will be targeting foreigners as well as other football hooligans from other countries. Ukrainian nationalists have targeted Hungarian monuments in western Ukraine in recent years. The most recent incidents happened when Hungarian monuments were spray painted in the Ukrainian national colours (blue & yellow). There is a small Hungarian minority community in the Ukraine by the Hungarian border region.
