Not to Ukraine. Lomachenko showed where he went first after the fight with Haney and delighted the Russians
Former world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) flew to Greece after his fight with absolute champion Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs). The 35-year-old native of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi posted several photos from the monastery on the Holy Mount Athos.
In the pretentious pictures, Lomachenko, dressed in black, sits on the stairs, looking thoughtfully into the distance.
Since Vasyl's Instagram is blocked in Ukraine, it was primarily his Russian fans who began to write to him.
The photos of the boxer caused real ecstasy among users from Russia.
"Vasyl, just realise that you have left a huge mark on the 21st century. Your name and surname will never die. They will be carried on for many, many generations.", "We Russians are rooting for you! You are our Orthodox brother," users write.
Several Ukrainians also made their way into the comments, trying to ask Vasyl relevant questions.
"Don't you want to write at least one word about the blown-up dam? It's not so far from Odesa, and you continue to promote the Muscovite patriarchate and have not said a single word about Russian aggression to an audience of 2.2 million people," the users said.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the day before the full-scale invasion began, Lomachenko visited a Russian monastery on Holy Mount Athos.
More than 65,000 boxer's fans left their "likes" under the photo. One of the first to comment on the photo near St Panteleimon's Monastery was Russian actor Vladimir Sychov, who was banned from entering Ukraine for visiting Crimea in 2018. He advised Vasyl to visit Elder Gabriel.
