Yarmo’s huge donation to his homeland

Andriy Yarmolenko has made a huge £75,000 donation to the Ukrainian armed forces, according to a new report.

Zorya Londonsk posts Ukrainian football news in English on Twitter and has claimed that the Hammers star has made a big donation to the war effort against Russia.

Vladimir Putin’s forces have invaded their neighbouring country and heavy fighting is currently ongoing in a number of cities in the country.

But Yarmolenko has donated a big chunk of cash to the effort to repel the invaders and attempt to keep Ukraine safe.

Yarmo, of course, is the captain of his country at international level and has won 106 caps, scoring 44 goals.

He has been given time off from club duties and, as a result, missed the win over Wolves at the weekend.

Declan Rice carried Yarmo’s shirt onto the pitch and there wwas immense applause as a message of solidarity was shown on the big screen at the London Stadium.

  1. I think you should clarify whether this is a donation to the humanitarian cause or to the military itself. Before posting
    Donating to the military goes against his and our “no war ” message
    No war means no war.
    Either side.

  2. If I was Ukrainian and had £75k to spare, I would donate it in the best way to help my country. And what they need to do right now us to keep kicking back at Putin’s army – ‘no war’ or not.

  3. Having said this, if I were a Premier League footballer, I’d expect to be able to match that £75k with a hunanitarian donation as well.
    By the way, there’s no place for neutrality here. Even FIFA – and even the IOC – are going for boycotts,
    No War has to begin by stopping this one.
    (Can’t believe how far we’ve got off of football talk.)
