Recall that on Thursday, February 24, 2022, President Putin ordered the Russian military to invade Ukraine. Since then, the Russian military have been causing havoc on the country.

Russia’s military attacks on Ukraine have attracted a series of criticism against Russia and many countries especially the United Kingdom have rolled out different degrees of sections against the country.

On his part, Oleksandr Zinchenko who was born in Ukraine on December 15, 1996, and grew up in the country before football took him out of the country in 2015, lost his cool over Putin’s show of power on Ukraine. Hence, the 25-year-old Ukrainian footballer took to his Instagram page to share a write-up to express his anger against Putin.

Oleksandr Zinchenko shared an Instagram post in which he wished that Putin dies “the most painful suffering death”. He also referred to the Russian president as a “scum”.

Both Manchester City and Everton players wore warm-up kits that have the Ukrainian flag and “No War” embroidered on them.

When the players of both teams stepped out for the game, the Premier League anthem was suspended and Everton displayed the Ukrainian flags on their pitchside advertisement boards.

Oleksandr Zinchenko and Vitaliy Mykolenko were benched by their separate teams for the game due to the psychological trauma they might be going through due to the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia.

In the pre-match press conference of the league match that ended 1-0 in favor of Manchester City, the coach of Man City, Pep Guardiola said: “He (Zinchenko) is worried. He has family and friends there. If they are killing innocent people in your country, how would you feel?

“What we feel with our country where we were born. I guess that’s how he feels. The team and the club are close to him, unconditionally.”
