“We Will Fight for Ukraine” – Legendary boxers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko
Legendary boxers and brothers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko have vowed to fight for Ukraine amidst the ongoing Russian invasion.
The former heavyweight champions, with Vitali now the mayor of Kiev, have sent out an emotional plea to end the ‘senseless war’ as their country continues to be attacked by Vladimir Putin.
As mayor of the Ukraine capital, Vitali has declared an emergency for the Ukrainian capital, which is now under martial law.
In the video, Wladimir Klitschko said: ‘I’m calling to all international partners to observe this tragedy that is happening nowadays in Ukraine.
‘And this senseless war that is not going to have any winners, but losers.
‘I just want to tell you we must stay united against this aggression, against Russian aggression.
‘Don’t let it continue happening in Ukraine, don’t let it happen in Europe and eventually in the world.
‘United we are strong, support Ukraine, thank you.’
Vitali Klitschko became mayor in 2014, as well as head of the Kyiv City State Administration.
His brother Wladimir enlisted in Ukraine’s reserve army in Kyiv earlier this month as the country braced for an attack.
