The Ukrainian Club Schachtar Donetsk has begun his “peace tour” with a defeat. In the first of hitherto five feast planned charities, the 13-color Ukrainian masters on Saturday was subject to the Greek record champion Olympiakos Piraeus with 0: 1.
Instead of their own names, Donetsk players carried those of the cities bombed by Russian invaders in Ukraine on their jerseys. Schachtar has been denying no game in Donetsk since 2014 because of the war in Donbass.
The “peace tour” is supported by the Ukrainian government as well as among others by World Footballer Robert Lewandowski or David Beckham. The redeemed money should benefit the Ukrainian military and war victims. For the time being, games against the Istanbul clubs Besiktas and Fenerbahce as well as against Lechia Danzig and Hajduk Split are still planned.
