Flashmob participants crashed the rating of FIFA's Facebook page.

Facebook users initiated a flashmob on the FIFA page in the social network, protesting against the punishment of Croatian national football player Domagoj Vida and the football specialist Ognjen Vukojevic.

Within a few hours, hundreds of indignant comments appeared in the "Reviews" section of the FIFA page. Almost all messages are accompanied by the slogan "Glory to Ukraine!" – this is the phrase Vida said in the video after the victory of his team over Russia in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup.

In addition, flashmob participants rate the page with one asterisk (a negative rating), which dragged down the current page rating almost to the minimum. Users explain in different languages that the phrase "Glory to Ukraine!" does not have a political or insulting connotation, and accuse FIFA of corruption.

Famous Belarusian politicians and social activists took part in the action.
