Everybody living above a rock should be well aware of Russia declaring war on Ukraine and attacking them as we speak.
Brazilian players from Ukraine soccer clubs Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv have made a public plea for help leaving the country after Russia’s attack that started Wednesday.
The players and their families have taken refuge at a hotel in the country’s capital Kyiv.
“Here we are all gathered, Dynamo and Shakhtar players, with our families, staying here at the hotel because of the situation,” Shakhtar defender Marlon Santos said, per ESPN. “We are here asking for your help, due to the lack of conditions in the city, closed borders, closed airspace. There’s no way we can get out. We ask a lot of support from the government of Brazil, which can help us.”
Shakhtar’s Junior Moraes said that they are effectively trapped without any money, food or fuel and can’t even leave due to the borders being shut.
“Borders are closed, banks [are shut], there is no fuel, there will be a shortage of food, there is no money. We are gathered waiting for a plan to leave Ukraine,” Moraes said.
Taking to Instagram, Moraes said that the players are in their Kiev hotel but are stuck while they wait for an update.
