The three most notable FEMEN activists, Alexandra Shevchenko, Inna Shevchenko and Oksana Shachko, decided to stage another Fuck Euro 2012 protest. The three activists approached the fan area in Kiev, Ukraine from different directions, but Alexandra and Inna Shevchenko were quickly identified and detained. Before being released, the two were severely beaten. Oksana Shachko managed to sneak past the guards and made her way to the Swedish fans zone.

Once Oksana made it in, she got up on a table, removed her top and began screaming Fuck Euro 2012. This didn’t go over too well with the fans, for while they seem to have enjoyed it at first their glee didn’t last long. Oksana was also detained and promptly arrested.

FEMEN’s official videographer, Kitty Green, was also detained, but being an Australian national escaped unharmed. 

There is no question, FEMEN have balls that the vast majority of men don’t. To enter into the heart of football fans and began chanting Fuck Football (in a sense) you must have courage far beyond that which I and most possess. While I am sure that they hoped they wouldn’t be physically assaulted, I am sure in the back of their heads they couldn’t completely eliminate the possibility, and so Alexandra and Inna learned. These ladies definitely feel strongly about their views and are insistent that everyone share in their beliefs.

FEMEN are very greatly against the prostitution industry and regularly insist that Ukraine is not a Brothel. It seems that UEFA could have saved themselves much grief by simply acknowledging FEMEN’s cries and making a public statement against prostitution, which is in fact illegal in Ukraine.
