A Russian citizen in Moscow has launched a formal complaint against American company Nike for its alleged racial discrimination against Russians.
We’re guessing Nike did nyet see that one coming.
Talk about flipping the diversity script on the Globalist American Empire…
Here’s the Google Translation from Russian:
A resident of Moscow asked the Investigative Committee to check the American company Nike for racial discrimination against Russians. The complainant, named Yevgeny Smirnov, found it offensive to see the almost complete absence of white models on Nike’s Russian-language site.
Almost all models representing the brand are either dark-skinned or representatives of the Mongoloid race. Caucasoids, who make up the vast majority of Russian citizens, are practically not reflected. The company did not answer on what principles the models are chosen, after which the Muscovite turned to the UK. [Editor’s note: this appears to be the acronym for the Investigative Committee]
“The company’s policy is to impose Western values and stereotypes that are alien to European culture in general and Slavic culture in particular,” RIA Novosti quoted the document with a mark of acceptance for consideration.
Nike refused to communicate not only with a dissatisfied consumer, but also with Russian journalists – for two days there were no answers to requests. If the UK finds signs of violation of equality of rights and freedoms in the activities of the manufacturer, a criminal case will be opened under Article 136 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

Does Smirnov’s complaint have any legal merit, or is it just a clever troll? A quick perusal of Nike’s Russian website suggests he might just have a point:
These ads look as Russian as borscht and ushanka hats, you bigots!
Out of Russia’s 144 million people, only about 70,000 are black. Presumably all of them migrated there to appear in Nike ads.
Whatever comes of this complaint, it underscores the pathetic irony that an alleged foreign adversary seems to be taking bolder action against American woke poison than America’s own alleged opposition party, the GOP.
And come to think of it, what is the deal with the bizarre anti-white discrimination in commercials these days?
