The police saw Nazi symbols in the emblem of the Moscow Torpedo

The emblem of the Moscow club Torpedo was banned. We are talking about the logo, which was approved back in 1930 – a cogwheel-gear, against which is a racing car and the letter T. At the last home match of black and white against Neftekhimik (2:3), the Moscow police department did not allow to sell and bring paraphernalia with such an image to the stadium.

“A representative of the Moscow police department arrived and said that the torpedo emblem – the letter “T”, the gear and the racing car, which had been the Torpedo emblem since 1936, was similar to Nazi symbols. When we started laughing, they told us: “Yes, such it was precisely the gear that some party, some labor collective in Nazi Germany had, so we forbid it to you. Fans take out bulldogs on their banners, on scarves, it's been going on since 1988. And the police also forbid, they say, that this dog is some kind of evil, we forbid it to you. It seems to me that the Moscow police department is going too far here, Kommersant quotes the words of the head of the Torpedo fan club, Vasily Petrakov.

The fan club consults with the management of black and white and collects all documents for this emblem. Fans hope that the police will change their attitude and allow the symbolism at the next match on November 19.

Torpedo – the property of the fans of Moscow. It is clear that this torpedo logo has changed since Soviet times. Such an increased attention of the police is because recently the negative manifestations of the fans took place at the Torpedo stadium, nothing more, President of the Football Development Fund Alisher Aminov expressed his opinion.
