The question is - who is guilty? Polish hooligans, who attacked Russians or Russians, who traveled through Warsaw with red stars, hammers and sickles and other commies symbols. Try to understand that for many Poles red star is equal to swastika. Marching with red star in Warsaw is like marching with swastika through Tel-Aviv or walk into "US black district" wearing Ku-Klux-Klan uniform.
Even my mother was really shocked, that someone was stupid enough to make such provocation.
We shouldn't attack Russians, but they shouldn't do something like that in Warsaw. Can you imagine Poles with portraits of Stefan Zolkiewski (Polish hero, who captured Moscow) marching on Red Square?

I can. Only it is doubtful anyone would recognize who he was
People are allowed to act like nationalistic douchebags only once every two years nowdays - WC and Euro. So lets not act all shocked and butthurt about it, especially when noone got seriously hurt. I engaged in some petty football hooliganism myself in younger years (within the confines of the Russian league), so no judgements for either side here. It's fun to let loose and get into a brawl sometimes, especially with no heavy artillery like chains, knives, or traumatic pistols involved.
