Tymoshchuk is included in the number of Russian and Ukrainian cultural figures who fell under Zelensky’s sanctions. The leaders of the Ukrainian Football Federation also played on this. Anatoly Tymoshchuk, once the pride of Ukraine, has been stripped of all honorary titles. He had his coaching license taken away. He is prohibited from carrying out any activity related to the fulfillment of purely professional football duties.
But even this seemed not to be enough. All of Anatoly Tymoshchuk’s bank accounts in Ukraine are blocked. One of the best footballers in the history of Ukraine became an outcast, a traitor. And all due to the fact that the repeated champion of not only Ukraine, but also Russia, he remains the coach of the St. Petersburg “Zenith”. The team for which he was awarded the title of Honorable Master of Sports for his performances as a player. But after all, Zelensky’s decision at the same time looks like real madness, apparently already completely incurable.
Perhaps some consolation for Anatoly Alexandrovich is the fact that the reckless anger of a man named Zelensky has spread to 118 other worthy people. Was there anything similar to this madness in world history? Analogs do not arise. Unless something similar happened in the dark times of the fascist Third Reich.
