Ukrainian football player Yaremchuk refused to communicate with the Russian media on camera in Russian
He set a condition that he would give video interviews only in Ukrainian.
The striker of the Portuguese football club “Benfica” and the national team of Ukraine Roman Yaremchuk refused to talk to the camera with the representative of the Russian edition “Sport-Express” Maxim Allanazarov after the match against the Moscow “Spartak”. The Russian reported about it in the Telegram-channel.
“It’s a pity that Roman refused to talk to the camera. The video could be shot only if the conversation was in Ukrainian, which I do not know , “Allanazarov wrote.
As a result, the Ukrainian football player answered the questions of the Russian journalist, but without video.
Benfica beat Spartak 2-0 that day. This was Yaremchuk’s first game for the Portuguese club, and he played a decisive role in one of the goals scored. After that, the club temporarily renamed its English-language Twitter account to “Benficachuk”.
Earlier, social media criticized the striker of the Ukrainian national football team Artem Dovbyk , who became the hero of the match with Sweden at Euro 2020, but gave a post-match comment in Russian.
