Usik and Lomachenko speak in defence of faith and peace, not politics
Boxers are also warriors, they know the true price of war and peace, Molchanov noted.
Famous Ukrainian boxers Alexander Usik and Vasily Lomachenko in the film “Hello, brother! Christ is Risen!" spoke in defence of faith and peace, not politics, the journalist, publicist and director Yuri Molchanov noted on the air of the “1Kozak” TV channel.
According to him, the opponents of this film are annoyed by their own failure, because world-famous athletes spoke in support of the UOC and true patriotism, thanks to whom the national anthem of Ukraine sounds, and the Ukrainian state flag is raised.
Molchanov noted that the creators of the “media screen” for the OCU all the time try to present the UOC as weak, but they themselves could not offer anything to the public, except for scandals in the media and simulacra.
“They remain a rotten minority, and this annoys them,” the journalist said.
He also drew attention to the fact that most of the "couch experts" and "volunteers" outraged by this film "did not even smell the war". Athletes are well aware of the true cost of bloodshed.
“Boxers are also warriors. These are people who engage in power sports. They have the absolute right to be called warriors. And who, if not a warrior, knows the true price of war. And he knows the true price of the consequences of war <...>. When they talk about peace, they speak knowledgeably,” Molchanov emphasized.
