Former AC Milan and Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko has called for peace following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
His plea came after ex-Liverpool ace Andriy Voronin urged Vladimir Putin to ‘stop what you are doing’ after sharing the realities of the horrors unfurling in Ukraine’s capital Kiev.
Shevchenko urged for a quick and peaceful resolution with his ‘family under attack’.
The former Ukraine star, capped 111 times by his country, wrote on social media: “In the early hours a full scale war was initiated by Russia.
“My people and my family are under attack. Ukraine and its population want peace and territorial integrity.
“Please I ask you to support our country and call the Russian government to stop their aggression and violation of international law.
“We only want peace. War is not the answer.”
