«Like so many others, I find my heart broken by the conflict in Ukraine. As a Boyko, it is no surprise that my family are from Ukraine and most are Ukrainian citizens – my sister, uncles, and cousins. I worry for the safety of all Ukrainians in this dreadful situation.
I have the honor to have worked with the Ukrainian paralympic team as a General Sponsor of Ukrainian Paralympic team in previous Beijing Olympics where we have won the historic 4thplace.
I have learned much from their fortitude and resilience, but I have also seen in some of these athletes the awful human impact of combat.
This must be resolved, quickly and peacefully. It is time to find a diplomatic solution to that conflict in the interest of humanity»
