Then the family traveled half of Ukraine until they found themselves in Kyiv. After the move, the boys were taken to play in the Lokomotiv football club. Currently, Sashko, Artur, their parents and grandparents all live together in a rented one-room apartment.

Let this story inspire you in such a difficult time, says the United24 platform.

According to Zinchenko, he “saw himself in these boys, felt their pain and dreams” and decided to help. Together with the Nova Poshta company, he will purchase housing for his family in Kyiv. He will be chosen by the family itself, United24 was told. Currently, the search for a home is already underway.

More and more Ukrainian athletes became active in helping the Motherland after the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia. Some went to the front with weapons, others help financially and informationally.
