The company did not give any comments and silently listened to the claims.
Adidas removed from their site a dress with a Soviet coat of arms and the inscription “USSR” after the claims of the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The German manufacturer closed the sale of things, but it remained in several online stores. At the same time Adidas didn’t give any comments about the situation.
Probably, after removing from sales a dress with the USSR logo will resell several times more expensive. After the scandal because of the slogan “The Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” in H & M and the seizures of hoodies with this inscription from the stores, it was sold for 1900 dollars apiece.
In early May, the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs was indignant with the retro dress from Adidas and called it part of “imperial nostalgia”. The Russian Foreign Ministry reminded colleagues that many Lithuanians played for the USSR national teams in various sports. Hundreds of Facebook users have called to boycott Adidas products within flash mob #stopadidas.
