Shakhtar Donetsk, a Ukrainian professional football club that transferred ‘divine’ Mikhailo Mudrik to Chelsea (England), has decided to donate about 33 billion won to its soldiers and their families.
The British BBC said on the 16th (local time), “Shakhtar’s owner Rinat Akhmetov promised to donate 22 million pounds (approximately 33.3 billion won) for the war in Ukraine after transferring Mudrik to Chelsea.”
Chelsea announced the signing of Ukrainian national winger Mudrik on the 15th, and his transfer fee is known to be £ 89 million (approximately 134.7 billion won), the highest ever for a Ukrainian player.

According to the Associated Press, Shakhtar explained that the money promised was not from a transfer fee, but news of the donation came one day after Mudrik’s transfer was completed.
Akhmetov’s owner said the donation will support the ‘Heart of Azophtal’ project, which helps the garrison of the southern city of Mariupol and the families of fallen soldiers.
The plan is to use the donations to meet their specific needs, including medical and prosthetic treatment and psychological support.
“It is thanks to the tremendous support of the Ukrainian army, Ukrainians and the civilized world that we can talk about Ukrainian football,” Akhmetov said.
He also said Shakhtar will play Chelsea in a friendly at the Donbas Arena in Ukraine.
