The former footballer and head coach of the Ukrainian national team recalled the events of last year.

Andriy Shevchenko called the events of February 24, 2022 the worst day of his life. The former football player and head coach of the Ukrainian national team, in an interview with Sky Sports, recalled the beginning of a full-scale invasion.

“Honestly, I remember every second of that morning. It’s impossible to forget. Especially the call from my mother. She was upset, she was crying. It was probably the hardest moment in my life – hearing this bad news, learning about what happened then what we were afraid of.

Of course, my family didn’t want to leave. The sister said, “We want to stay. We’ll see how the situation develops. You know, things can change quickly.” I just wanted to go back to help the family… Help the country. And, of course, mom. He said, “Use your voice. Speak up.”

My son and I went to Trafalgar Square for the first time. There was a rally. It is necessary to raise people’s awareness to help Ukrainians. It is necessary to use my connection with people.

I have never seen my country, my Kyiv without electricity. But the people’s reaction was very strong. All stronger united. We started working together. We share things – those with generators invite neighbors to do their own washing.

In the first few weeks, all important athletes of Ukraine came together. These are Vladimir and Vitali Klitschko, Alexander Zinchenko… I am very proud of the Ukrainian athletes who stayed in the country. And many athletes who competed in other countries did not forget about Ukraine,” said Shevchenko.

Recall that earlier, on the occasion of the first anniversary of a mass war, Oleksandr Usyk addressed the Ukrainians.
