Famous Ukrainian chef Yevhen Klopotenko spoke frankly about why he did not join the Armed Forces of Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. He believes that he would be much more useful staying where he is.

The restaurateur, who is the founder of several restaurants in Kyiv and Lviv, sees his mission as supporting Ukrainians through food, but he complies with the rules of the current legislation by updating his data in the TCC. He spoke about this in an interview with TyKyiv.

Since the beginning of the war, Yevhen Klopotenko has seen no reason to change his activities, as he believes that he can do much more in the usual conditions.

"From the first days of the invasion, I tried to take care of the safety of my family and my team. Besides, I was outside the city at the time and, for example, I didn't see any point in joining the terrorist defense in a small village. I also realized that I would do more good in my place. After all, from the first day of the great war, my team and I supported Ukrainians through food. I was actively engaged in gastro-diplomacy and talked about the events in Ukraine in the global information space. For a long time, I was focused only on this," the chef said.

He also noted that he updated his military service record on the first day of the mobilization law.

As a public figure, the restaurateur decided that he could better help people in need through his profession rather than on the battlefield.

"When I came to the city of Lviv in the first days of the invasion and saw the number of people evacuating in desperation, often without things and resources for a normal life, I decided that I had to help in some way. This is how the Other Cafe was born. My partner Inna Popereshniuk and I opened it in five days. This was our response to people's requests and the challenges of the times," said Yevhen Klopotenko.
