Goalkeeper Oleksandr Shovkovskyi became the ambassador of the socially important project "Sports Front"

"I know: the goalkeeper protects the goal from the opponent's ball. But how to protect them from an enemy Russian missile? I know: fans can accept a player or not. But how to accept this unbearable silence in the stands? Today, Russia continues the war in Ukraine, and Russian athletes remain silent. And this silence is silent support for terror. I appeal to everyone who is united by the love of sports! We must not be silent! All of us, the entire democratic world, are a single team in the fight for victory over evil!" Oleksandr Shovkovskyi said in the video.
