Ukraine is no longer fighting for its independence but becomes dependent on the West, according to Ukrainian silver medalist in Rio Jean Belenyuk.




When asked were they on the right path, what the country was fighting for, he answered:


“For what it’s fighting?”


“We are fighting for independence”, specified the journalist. 


“From one dependence we immediately come under another one, – said the sportsman. – Unfortunately, we can not be independent. If not the East, so the West will dictate its own terms”.


Belenyuk also added that the situation in Ukraine is deteriorating, including in sports. He was outraged that the singer Jamala got the two bedroom apartment when the athletes are withholded in such gifts.
