“I am extremely proud of how my country fights for and defends its independence.

Together with the United 24 fundraising platform, which was established by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, I’ve been actively involved in several humanitarian and medical relief programs.

It’s crucial to keep in mind that the battle is still ongoing, but it’s much more crucial to support Ukraine. I greatly appreciate it.

Andriy Yarmolenko, the current captain of the men’s national soccer team of Ukraine, referred to Russia as a “terrorist country” and demanded that it be “totally isolated” from the rest of the sporting world last month after UEFA announced that it would not be eligible to qualify for the 2024 European Championships.

“They murder Ukrainians, our children, every day.” There can thus be no discussion about any sport,’ he told the press.
Everyone on the Ukrainian national team is focused solely on punishing this nation as severely as they can.
