In the center Munich an installation has opened, the central object of which is part of the tribune of the Kharkov stadium “Solnechny”which was seriously damaged by Russian shelling in 2022.

The Ukrainian Football Association carried the podium across Europe as a reminder that football in our country, like other areas of life, also directly suffers from the war unleashed by Russia.

Let us remember that this arena was built in 2011 before Euro 2012. At that forum, it became the training base of the Dutch national team, and subsequently the Ukrainian national team held preparatory training camps there. Also at Solnechny, home matches were played by Helios, Metalist 1925, Metal and a number of other Kharkov teams.

Early in the morning of February 24, 2022, Russia fired rockets and aerial bombardment of most Ukrainian cities, and then launched a full-scale military invasion. The Russian war against Ukraine has continued for the 845th day.
