‘Children are dying, we need to stop this war’ – Shevchenko makes powerful statement
Shevchenko has told Sky Sports: “I’m so proud to be Ukrainian. It’s a very difficult moment for my country, my people, my family.
“My mum and sister are in Kyiv at the moment, and terrible things have happened there. People dying, children dying, missiles pointing into our houses.
“We need to stop this war, we need to find a way to stop the war.”
He added, having tried to convince his family to join those fleeing Kyiv: “My mum and sister, like most of the Ukrainian people, are refusing to leave, they’re staying put to fight, for our freedom, for our soul.
“We’re a united people, and at this moment a country united. There’s a lot of help around; families try to share food with the soldiers, to help the troops.
“It’s one of the more difficult moments in the history of Ukraine, but people are really united, because we want freedom, and to defend our homes.
“We have refugees, we need humanitarian aid. We need medical support, food support. It feels like I can do a lot here, and I will do.”
Shevchenko said of efforts to restore peace as soon as possible: “It’s a great reaction from the institutions like UEFA and FIFA to make the right decision.

“I don’t think it’s a difficult decision. When you attack a country, when you start to send in bombs and soldiers; it’s not a conflict, it’s a real war.
“When the war has not stopped, I think it’s the right decision not to allow any Russian athletes to participate in any sporting event.
“Football doesn’t exist for me anymore. I don’t think about it. It’s not the time for that. I’m not watching anything, any sport, anything.
“All my concentration, when I wake up, I think about how I can help my country, what I can do. I’ve started to call my parents, my friends, get updates on what’s going on in Ukraine.
“For me, this is my field, this is my concentration now.”JAMB Result
