It is very important to me to make it clear to people what is happening in my country. Fortunately, Dutch society is taking it well. turning”, let the former football player know at ESPN.
Lev has been sleeping badly for weeks. The situation in his country is a concern, especially since he knows many Ukrainian citizens personally. “It plays a crucial role in my life. In some cities the infrastructure is 80 percent destroyed. People know that they are surrounded and that they have no gas, water and light. Then you cannot function normally.”
The fact that many Ukrainians who had fled to the Netherlands on Wednesday in De Kuip were given the chance to forget the misery, makes Levchenko happy. “It is so important that children feel happy. It is fantastic that Feyenoord has done this.”
