“Russia is methodically destroying [Kharkiv] region, infrastructure facilities, housing estates, and now it’s the turn of sports facilities”
“Every day I wake up in pain. My dear Ukraine has been suffering for more than 100 days. At the same time, it proudly fights for the right to live with the dignity of the warriors of light, the warriors of good. To live in one family of free and proud countries united by one great European Union.
I remember very well how my country hosted EURO 2012 matches together with Poland! It was an incredible holiday for my people. All my friends often mention the hospitality of Ukrainians. The national team of the Netherlands was preparing for the matches at the training base in the village of Vysoke near Kharkiv.
A few days ago, this base was destroyed after a missile strike from Russia. The region, infrastructure facilities, and housing estates are being systematically destroyed, and now it is the turn of sports facilities.
I want to support Kharkiv, I want to support Kharkiv fans! They [Russians] are trying to steal your future, as of all our country, but it will not happen, it will never happen. We, Ukrainians, will stand together and build our beautiful European future!” Andrii Shevchenko wrote.
