This is what Baiul called Lomachenko for his stance on Russia
Oksana Baiul, the 1994 Olympic champion, said what she thinks of the former world champion in three weight categories Vasyl Lomachenko for his favorable position towards Russia on the Football24 YouTube channel. The 45-year-old ex-figure skater admitted that she does not see any special mental abilities.
The interviewer, asking about Baiul's opinion, said that many Ukrainian athletes before the full-scale invasion hid behind the slogan that "sport is out of politics." Now it seems that "everything is in politics" and everyone understands what is happening.
"Who is left behind? Vasyl Lomachenko comes to mind first. Doesn't this 'boy' surprise you?" the host asked.
"He's stupid, stupid... I am absolutely fine with everything," Baiul replied.
When the journalist asked if Oksana accepted him as he was, Baiul responded with the phrase "What can I do? I can't help it."
It should be noted that our compatriot said that only God can stop the war in Ukraine before the fight with Haney during a press conference. In addition, Lomachenko did not say the word "Ukraine" when he said who he would fight the American boxer for.
Earlier, Lomachenko did not call Russia the aggressor and also said that it was difficult for him to explain the situation. In addition, the Ukrainian recalled how the war began for him, He later refused to condemn Putin and his decision to send troops to Ukraine.
Vasy also expressed confidence that many Russians do not support the war, noting that he sees no point in appealing to the Kremlin leader, whom he called the commander-in-chief.
On February 24, a Ukrainian lightweight posted an image of a dove with two joined hands painted in the colors of the flags of Ukraine and Russia.
