A Russian gymnast is being disciplined for wearing a ‘Z’ sign on the podium. St. George’s ribbons, which are black and orange in color, are tokens of commemoration for World War II veterans. “Z” has become a symbol for domestic and international support for Russia’s continuing conflict in Ukraine. Patients and employees of a children’s hospice in Kazan construct the sign in a snow-covered courtyard, according to a widely circulated photograph. A video with over a million views has gone viral showing individuals waving the Russian flag behind a group wearing Russian flag sweatshirts.
