I started Athletes for Ukraine because of Putin’s unjustified war on the peaceful people in Ukraine. This war must be stopped immediately.  I am especially inspired by the people of Ukraine who are defending our democracy with their lives. This war will affect our future as well as our children’s future for freedom and democracy!

"Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace”

This unjustified war against Ukraine is crazy.  As a father myself it enormously worries me how the families are doing there. To help the people of Ukraine who lost their homes and had to leave their families behind, we founded Athletes for Ukraine to support the people of Ukraine.  Please support us to help all the people there who are doing so badly right now.

It is shocking to witness a country that stands for freedom and democracy under attack.  The result of this unjust war is that families are being torn apart and bear unbelievable and unnecessary suffering. To signal a sign for peace and solidarity, I support "Athletes for Ukraine"!

Marcus Burghardt

- Road Cycling -

War is the opposite of what sports are: Joy, dignity, respect, trust, team spirit and thinking beyond borders, prejudice and barriers. Sports generate working together respectfully, war only knows working against one another until there is no winner left. As a human and as a professional cyclist, I would like to use my network to show the people of the Ukraine that I support them and my thoughts are with them.

Michael Rösch

Stop this war !!!!
It seams to be far but the war is only 700km away from us. We live in a place with peace and democracy, a place with freedom, with infrastructure, economy, school, healthcare, hospitals, work, grocery stores, flowing water, electricity… the Ukrainian lost all this and that’s why I want to help to get this life back for them!

Syria, Ethiopia and now Ukraine!  War is cruel and wrong, always, and everywhere. Innocent people die, the homeland is left destroyed with people living in constant fear! We must help together ‑for ONE world in peace!  I fully support “Athletes for Ukraine” as a father, police officer and athlete.

Imposing war, death and destruction on others can never be the right thing. Trying to change another’s society with the use of violence and brutality cannot be accepted. Not in Ukraine, nor in any of the other multitude of countries whose people are being forced to live through a hell on Earth because of war.
