The Secretary General of Federation of Boxing of Russia Umar Kremlev said he was willing to grant Vasyl Lomachenko and Alexander Usik Russian citizenship:
“Usyk and Lomachenko – worthy people, worthy of the athletes who defend my position. This is not the position of Ukraine that don’t like them. Both of them they love and adore. Not only in Ukraine but also in Russia and Belarus and the entire Orthodox world, their loves and supports. So do I support.
In Ukraine there are dozens of bastards who for dollars running around and running errands. Here they can be dissatisfied. But 40 million is a maximum of a few thousand people.
In the base of the “Peacemaker” does not include the traitors of Ukraine, and Vice versa – traitors include people in this fictional base. We are here to provide Usyk and Lomachenko Russian citizenship, if these are dozens of the bastards in Ukraine will sow negativity around these magnificent athletes.
We are proud of these athletes. And giving them citizenship if necessary. If only they fought and pleased the fans in Ukraine, in Russia and around the world.”
Earlier Usyk and Lomachenko appeared in the database “Peacemaker” for shooting in the Russian film about the Church.
