Ukrainian gymnast Oleg Vernaeve, Olympic champion in 2016 on the uneven bars, world champion 2014 on the uneven bars, six times European champion, twice champion of the European games, spoke about the war in the Donbass:
“Why the war started? I have nothing to say, honestly. I’m not going to say anything. I’ve heard enough on this topic. Not going to say anything, because that is not true – it will not.
I’m just very sorry that I can’t go to Donetsk. I’m sorry that a lot of people suffers, the country suffers – I’m sorry. Do I understand the answer to this question? Possible, Yes”.
