Legengdary former Ukraine, Dynamo Kiev, and AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko is among the Ukrainians to have been affected by the invasion of the country by Russia in recent weeks.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster RAI Radio, the Ukrainian thanked his former club the Rossoneri as well as Inter for their mutual display of support for the country prior to kickoff in last week’s Coppa Italia derby clash.

The world of football has shown solidarity with the people of Ukraine amid the ongoing invasion by Russia, with most leagues and clubs making some gestures of support.

The Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri decided to join together prior to kickoff ahead of their Coppa Italia semi-final first leg on Tuesday to display a message of support.

Shevchenko, who has also coached the Ukrainian national team as well as Genoa recently, was happy to see the two teams coming together to show their support despite the derby rivalry.

“I want to thank the city of Milan, Milan, and Inter, for this message of solidarity and peace,” he said. “Italians, open your heart to my country.”

He went on, “To women, children, elderly people: help us. Make them feel as you made me feel in Italy. Thanks again.”
