Nazi memorabilia is openly being sold in the flea markets of the Ukrainian city of Donetsk where England will face France in a Euro 2012 match.

According to The Sun, an SS soldier's helmet is being sold for less than 100 pounds.

Also on sale in the Pushkin Boulevard market in Donetsk were swastika brooches at just four pounds each and Iron Crosses.

There were also sew-on patches of the death's head symbol of the SS, the paramilitaries who spearheaded Hitler's genocidal attacks on the Jews.

A stallholder said: "The badges are copies, but don't try and take them through customs."

There were even England flags alongside a picture of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin that were sold in the market.

He said: "We welcome the England fans. There will be no problems." (ANI)
