Italian Senator Petrocelli has come under fire after highlighting the letter Z in a Twitter post

Vito Petrocelli, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the Italian Senate on Foreign Affairs and Migration, published a post on his Twitter in which he highlighted the letters Z. The reaction was not unambiguous, which led to a scandal. 

Not so long ago, the politician congratulated fellow citizens on the Day of Liberation from Fascism and Nazism, which is celebrated in Italy on April 25.”Per domani buona festa della LiberaZione,” he wrote, highlighting the Z.The reaction was such that users condemned Petrocelli for “supporting Russia’s special operation in Ukraine.”

Since the beginning of the military special operation in Ukraine, the Latin letters Z and V have been applied to the sides of Russian military equipment participating in a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine. In Russia, the letter Z has already become an unofficial symbol of her support.
