On the eve of the start of the 2024 European Championship, the Ukrainian Football Association, in collaboration with the United24 platform, released a profoundly moving video.

In the video, Ukrainian national team players narrate in English the cities of their birth, followed by scenes of the destruction inflicted upon these cities by the Russian army. The video features Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, Chelsea winger Mykhailo Mudryk, La Liga's top scorer Artem Dovbyk, Benfica goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin, Arsenal defender Oleksandr Zinchenko, Girona winger Viktor Tsyhankov, Bournemouth defender Illia Zabarnyi, among others.

The purpose of this video is to remind people around the world of the horrific war that Russia instigated in Ukraine on February 22, 2022, and which continues to this day.

In the 2024 European Championship, Ukraine will compete in the same group as Belgium, Romania, and Slovakia. On June 17, Serhiy Rebrov's team will face Romania in Munich.
