"What is Russia trying to accomplish?" Zinchenko reminded the British about the war in Ukraine
London Arsenal midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko called on Ukrainian athletes on the international stage to continue to remind the world about the war in our country. The 27-year-old footballer also noted that he would like to be in Ukraine and is very worried about the news.
Zinchenko said this in an interview with the authoritative British publication The Athletic. The participant of two European Championships emphasized that the world is paying less attention to Russian aggression and the crimes of the occupiers, but Ukrainians cannot afford to be tired of the war.
"I really want to be in Ukraine because it is my homeland. Watching and following the news, where people die for no reason almost every day, you just ask yourself: what is Russia trying to achieve? Maybe some people are tired of it, but all of us, Ukrainians all over the world... We can't get tired of it because this is our life, our country. We need to talk about it more, and that's what we're trying to do," Zinchenko said.
He added that sports victories give strength to all the people of our country. "Ukrainians playing football, tennis, boxing abroad - we need to represent our country. This is our duty. Everyone who has a Ukrainian passport should do everything possible to make this victory closer. Any victories of Ukrainians evoke great emotions among people who are fighting for our freedom. Many heroes on the front line watch football," the player emphasized.
