Ex-CSKA player complained that Ukrainians and Russians "speak different languages"
Former CSKA Kyiv football player Roman Monarev, who was granted Russian citizenship in 2009, complained that Ukrainians and Russians have become strangers. The ex-player kept silent about the invasion of the aggressor country's army and added that he was not going to return to Ukraine.
Monarev said this in an interview with the Sport24 portal. He called Russia's criminal war against Ukraine "all these actions" and noted that he did not feel the need to come to his native Kyiv. At the same time, his father categorically refused to leave the capital.
"Many people have relatives in both countries. And now these people are strangers to each other - they speak different languages, there are no points of contact. They say one thing, these say another, and there is no truth in the middle. The last time I was in Ukraine was five years ago. After I left Zvezda, I did not return. There was no need. My daughter from my first marriage left when all these actions started. My mother and her sister and her children are in Europe. My father is not going to leave. This is his position," Monarev said.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, former Russian national football player Sergey Grishin declared his readiness to fight against Ukraine, but was afraid of the summons.
