DescriptionThe message, athlete, don't be (one of) Titushki!" refers to the provocateurs that were hired by President Yanukovych to assault peaceful protesters in Kiev. The Titushki often dressed in tracksuits while they fought along with the police to put down demonstrators and harass journalists. Titushki members were often ex-convicts and thugs. "The word "Titushki" is not listed in a dictionary - but that's what people all over Ukraine call the sturdy young men in tracksuits who join forces with the police to fight anti-government protesters." -- Deutsche Welle. The sticker features an image of a crouching Titushki crossed out with a universal no symbol. "Mission: Ensuring the aspiration of Ukrainian citizens to a decent life and personal development through public and political activities."-- Democratic Alliance (Ukraine) website.
