Oleg Vernyayev – Stop War

 Oleg calls for the international sporting community to support Ukraine.

From Instagram:

“last saw my native Donetsk back in 2012. And soon the war will take away my opportunity to return home for almost 9 years.

With the onset of a full-scale invasion, training was put on a back burner. From the first days, I started volunteering, as did some of my colleagues, Ukrainian gymnasts. About three thousand athletes and coaches are now defending the Independence of our country. Over a hundred of them will never return home.

Silence settled in our training halls. But we must not be silent!

We should not keep silent about Russia’s crimes against Ukraine, as Russian and Belarusian athletes do.

Their silence is support for the bloody Russian terror. Terrorists have no place in international sports.

I urge all citizens of the civilized world to support Ukraine on the sports front!

Silence kills!”
