An unpleasant incident has occurred during the Olympic biathlon event in Pyeongchang. A Russian fan from the Sverdlovsk region has reported an incident over displaying the Russian flag.

“A woman in German coloured clothes came up and said that we had to remove our flag. We said we would so she would go away, but we did not remove it. So she called the police on us, which forced us to lower it – but they wanted to take the whole thing from us. But our flag was hoisted on a fishing rod – and we’re not giving our fishing rod away too! When we asked what our crime was, they did not explain” the Russian national team’s fan said.

At the same time, the Russian fans spoke positively of their Korean hosts. “All of us are treated very nicely, there was not a single problem staying here. Koreans embrace and kiss us, and smear our flag colours on their cheeks at various events, ” said the fan.

Sometimes Germans should just relax =]
