Kuznetsov refuses to communicate with Russians

Legendary Kyiv Dynamo footballer Oleg Kuznetsov has stopped communicating with his former Russian teammates from the USSR and CIS national teams. The 1988 European vice-champion admitted that he does not condemn their position on the war in Ukraine, but simply does not want to listen to the clichés of Kremlin propaganda.

Kuznetsov said this in an interview with FanDay. According to the UEFA Cup and Super Cup winner, some Russians called him after Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24 last year, but he refused to answer the phone on principle.


"Kiryakov, Khidiyatullin and  called, but after February 24, I did not pick up the phone on principle. Now I have nothing to talk to them about. Kanchelskis and I used to be good friends, we even visited him at Rangers with Mykhailychenko. If I met him face to face today, I might talk to him, but I don't want to listen to this nonsense on the phone. It is clear that Kancelskis will not come to Red Square with the slogan: "I am for Ukraine". This will not happen. He has been living in Russia for over 30 years and probably wants to continue working there. This is his position. I do not condemn him, I just stopped communicating with him," the legendary footballer said.


It should be noted that earlier Kanchelskis called Russian football a big swamp, and also called on players to flee the championship, but only to the top 7 leagues in Europe.


As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, former Russian national footballer Andrey Solomatin said that Ukrainian children "need to be remade". In addition, he admired dictator Vladimir Putin because he "did not bend to these f*gg*ts, to the West".
