"What's wrong with these boxers?": Lomachenko's new "peace" post caused a stir online
Former world champion in three weight categories Vasyl Lomachenko is gradually transforming his Instagram account from a sports account to a religious account. The day before, the 35-year-old native of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi published another religious post, provoking not very flattering comments in his address.
Lomachenko posted a video with a parable, captioning it, "let peace be with you." The video is about a monk who comes to atheists and explains to them where God is.
"God is everywhere, and only thanks to him do we all exist. But to see and understand him, you need to strictly, zealously, and sincerely follow the prescribed rules. Only at the end of the process can you experience his mercy and his power," the parable ends.
Lomachenko's followers could not restrain themselves in their statements.
"What's wrong with these boxers? How can you punch people in the face for money and still talk about God," the fans wonder.
Given that Vasyl's Instagram is closed to Ukrainian users, many adherents of the "Russian world" have commented and traditionally started praising their idol.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, on August 20, Vasyl Lomachenko refused to respond to the terrible rocket attack on Chernihiv by the Russian occupiers. A few hours after the tragedy, Vasya posted a quote from Archimandrite Sergius (Sribnyansky) of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Recently, Lomachenko posted a quote from Russian hieromonk Mikhail (Pitkevich) about loving everyone around.
Before that, the Ukrainian boxer praised the rector of the Moscow UOC, Onufriy, who had previously been found to have a Russian passport by SSU. After that, the Ukrainians offered to exchange him for Ukrainians.
It should be noted that our compatriot said that only God can stop the war in Ukraine during a press conference before the fight with Haney. In addition, Lomachenko did not say the word "Ukraine" when he said who he would fight the American for.
Earlier, Lomachenko refused to call Russia the aggressor and said 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.
Vasyl 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.
