Dobrovolskyi spoke strangely about the war

Igor Dobrovolsky, the Olympic champion of the 1988 Seoul Games, sees no difference between the peoples of the former Soviet Union. The former player of the Soviet and Russian national teams described Russia's war against Ukraine with the words "What can we do?".

The former player of Dynamo Moscow, Atletico Madrid, and Italian Genoa said this in an interview with Championship.com. According to Dobrovolskyi, he said that "everyone is hurting" because of the fighting. He also expressed hope that "sooner or later it will end."

"I was born and raised in the USSR. For me, Georgians, Ukrainians, Armenians, and Belarusians are all my own. I have friends everywhere, I have normal relations with everyone. What do we have to divide? Everyone is hurt by what is happening between Russia and Ukraine. What can we do? I hope it will end sooner or later," Dobrovolskyi said.
