The incident should have happened in a store on Svoradova street in Bratislava’s Old Town. “There was a young lady (Ukrainian as I found out after a few seconds) with a young girl paying in line in front of me,” the man described on the social network. According to him, they did not say anything bad to the seller, paid by card and left. The problem should have arisen only after they left. “Then it was my turn, and the salesman said these words: ‘I hate you, you Ukrainians, fuck***, bastards**’. Until then, I had no idea about the nationality of this lady and the little girl. He responded to my forceful and sharp words that I should come and tell him at 10:00 PM in front of the Tesco store,” he said. “He responded aggressively and irritated to my questions about what he could do to those people and asked me if he had said something bad directly to me. There was no reaction from the remaining non-buyers,” he added. He told the store itself that if they employ “human sewage”, then he will not spend a single euro with them. He also wanted to contact their headquarters. Tesco is investigating the case. We also contacted the chain with questions. “At Tesco, we care about all people who are in need, need help or are experiencing difficult life situations. In connection with the war conflict in Ukraine, we launched a range of activities to support those who fled the country and are in the territory of the Slovak Republic, as well as people dependent on help directly in Ukraine. Many of them have become our colleagues,” said Mária Zerzanová, PR manager of Tesco. “Therefore, we are very sorry for the inappropriate behavior of our employee, with whom we do not identify as a company, and we apologize in this regard to the affected customers,” she added. According to her, it is an individual failure that they examine and take responsibility for.
