Former Dynamo Kyiv and Ukrainian national team forward Artem Kravets spoke about his attitude towards Russians during a Vatsko Live interview on YouTube published on April 7.

"Until Feb. 24, 90% of people, like me, had a 'see no evil, hear no evil' attitude. Now we are paying for it all,” he said.

"For me, there are no good Russians at this stage,” Kravets admitted.

"I prefer them in cellophane. I do not accept them. I had a conversation with my cousin who lives in this 'parussia' (slang for toilet, used as a Russian slur – ed). After asking her a few questions and receiving zombie answers, I just sent her a direct text. I said I didn't want to know or hear from her anymore.”

Kravets played 23 matches for the Ukrainian national team and scored eight goals.

Previously, a Shakhtar player told how his father-in-law went to war.
