The show was called "an unprecedented gala match"

Two football players who once played in Ukraine took part in an exhibition match in occupied Luhansk. The former Russian national football team defender Ramiz Mamedov and Ukrainian Oleksandr Babiy were among the players.

Mamedov, 51, played 13 matches for Dynamo Kyiv and 15 matches for Dynamo-2 from 1999 to 2000. Babiy, 55, played intermittently for Shakhtar Donetsk twice: in 1994-1995 (29 matches/2 goals) and 1996-1997 (26 matches/3 goals).
