Many Ukrainian news service providers jumped to break the story by declaring that the Pope “has unveiled a photo showing women with the Ukrainian flag.”
It is reported that the Ukrainian news outlets were mocked on social media after confusing the Down syndrome ribbon in a photo showing Pope Francis embracing two children with such condition represented by the colors blue and yellow, with the national flag of Ukraine.
The photograph – featuring the 79-year-old Argentinian Pope and two girls who have Down syndrome – was taken during the Pope’s visit to Mexico in mid-February.
“Tenderness: a word almost forgotten and one which the world today needs, all of us need!” Pope Francis (or franciscus on Instagram) wrote, describing the picture.
According to RT.com, many Ukrainian news service providers jumped to break the story by declaring that the Pope “has unveiled a photo showing women with the Ukrainian flag.”
The slogans such as “Glory to Ukraine,” “Glory to the nation,” “Death to enemies” and “Why did you have to tear the flag apart?” were burst on social media platforms.
However, the Ukraine has become the root of neo-fascism of this current century that callously supporting ultra-nationalism within its population. Several analysts suggested that such foolishness and ignorance are the direct results for nurturing too much ultra-nationalism in the country.
