Oleksandr Usyk sent a message to Vladimir Putin

As the days go by, such famous athletes can become less and less indifferent to everything that is happening in Ukraine. Especially of course the Ukrainians, who no doubt the national charge leads to the need to react. Vladimir Klitschko has already joined his brother Vitaly, the mayor of Kiev, and enlisted in the army, and this is increasingly being done by some other famous Ukrainians.

The last to react were Oleksandr Usyk and Vasiliy Lomachenko. Usyk arrived in Ukraine, from where he started to report daily via Instagram. He publishes footage from cities and battlefields in Instastory and addressed his special address to Vladimir Putin, whom he called for an end to the conflict, with an additional message to all his Russian followers and fans.


"My name is Oleksandr Usyk and I want to appeal to the people of Russia. If you consider us a fraternal people, do not allow your army, your children to go to our country." "Stop attacking us. I also appeal to President Putin, stop this war!

Stop giving us! ultimatums and set your demands, let's sit down at the negotiating table" Usyk wants the war to end as soon as possible "We need to talk and stop everything. Our children, mothers, grandmothers and ordinary people are hiding in basements.

We are on our own ground and reacting as we should." "We are just defending ourselves! war, ”Usyk wrote, adding that allegations he escaped are not true. He revealed that he was out of state on business, but that he had returned.

Vasiliy Lomachenko joined army

On the other hand, his friend and also the world's top boxer, Vasiliy Lomachenko, was in Greece until last week, but he is now back in Ukraine as well. He returned to his hometown of Odessa, where he immediately enlisted in the army and a photo was taken in uniform.

"Loma" joined the Belgorod-Dnestrovsky detachment of territorial defense. Both are currently in negotiations for the next matches, but it seems that they will put that aside for the time being. Usyk should probably defend his three heavyweight world champion belts in May, in a rematch against Anthony Joshua.

Lomachenko hopes to travel to Australia, where he would also be greeted by three-time champion George Kambosos. But it is not yet known whether Loma or Devin Hayen, the owner of the only belt Kambosos lacks, will have that advantage. In any case, the sad situation in Ukraine, which we hope will end soon. Things like this are not necessary
