Dmitri Tarasov's garment described Putin as 'most polite president'
Lokomotiv Moscow midfielder Dmitri Tarasov has been fined EUR 5,000 by UEFA for wearing a T-shirt displaying a picture of Russian leader Vladimir Putin with the the slogan "The most polite president."
The words reference the unmarked soldiers Russia deployed to annex Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in 2014.
'Polite people' was an expression used in Russia to describe the servicemen.
On its website UEFA states: "Players must not reveal undergarments that show political, religious, or personal slogans, statements or images."
