Yesterday, Alex Ovechkin was asked about the current war his country has started with Ukraine and responded:
I am in no way qualified to provide any sort of substantial answer in terms or what should or shouldn’t happen but I think we can all collectively agree that peace should be the only thing that matters right now. There’s some seriously scary shit going on right now, things that myself and many cannot begin to comprehend. With all the hate and polar opposite opinions and bullshit spewing in the media, I’m just going to try to continually educate myself on this situation and watch as much hockey as possible.
And speaking of educate: There is a documentary on Netflix called Winter on fire which provides real, intense, information as to how Ukraine got to where they are – up until the Russian invasion – seriously scary stuff.
