Former World Champions Take Up Arms For Ukraine

Most celebrities and professional athletes wouldn't think of stepping away from their comfortable lifestyle to put their lives on the line for others.

Except, of course, if you are the Klitschko brothers. The former heavyweight boxing champions have made it clear that they are jumping into the trenches in defense of their country.

Vitali Klitschko has been the mayor of Kyiv since 2014. He has made it clear that he is ready to fight:

“I don’t have another choice, I have to do that. I’ll be fighting,... I believe in Ukraine, I believe in my country and I believe in my people,”

Vitali's brother Wladimir enlisted in the Military reserves earlier in February. He said his love for his country compelled him to serve.

“The Ukrainian people are strong. And it will remain true to itself in this terrible ordeal. A people longing for sovereignty and peace.”

This is an excellent example to people around the world. These brothers have the means to flee Ukraine and be anywhere in the world, yet they choose to stand and fight. They choose to stand against tyranny and protect those who can't protect themselves.

Let us know what you think of the Klitschko brothers in the comments below!

  1. God bless the brothers that are willing to give up their comfortable life to fight for their country. We need more people like them. It is a sorry state of affairs That biden started with all this. He just kept egging putin on.

    1. We need more of our citizens to write their Congressmen to Impeach Biden and Harris now. Also to get rid of Fauci and Garland along with the other Communist Democrats. Also to vote in this coming States elections. Also for people to get rid of school board members, Principals and teachers that push Marxist propaganda doctrine on our children .

    2. This should be a wake up call for people in this country. Don’t take this for granted. People are waiting to destroy this country including in this country. To many bosses and not enough crew

  2. If faced with the same set of circumstances, I doubt if LeBron and his fellow athletes would do the same. They'd be taking the first flights out to Beijing

    1. Amen!!! Our “elitist” athletes, movie stars, politicians, and rich people would rather lay down and beg than fight.

  3. If only a portion of our country's athletes had this love for country over self we would be in a much better place. Instead it is replaced with self cowardice love of self. I for one love the example they set with their love of country and others before self!! God Bless you and may he protect your every decision!!

  4. May God bless them and their families! Do proud of them for choosing to do the right thing! I will be adding them and theirs to my prayer list along with their people and country! God bless and protect them and all the Ukrainian people!

  5. It was bye-den and O, who forced the old prez out, and forced their puppet in as prez., for trafficking, money laundering, at the expense of the people …

    1. Nah, those 2 are worthless. One couldn't find the front, even if someone pointed it out to her. And the other can't remember where he is and might start shooting Ukrainians. Instead Let's send Hunter with a plane load of crack & pipes. Land him on the Russian side. He could distribute the crack and party until they all pass out. Then the Ukrainians can go in and mop up.

    2. The way Joe “Bite me” talked in his speech you would have thought he was in the thick of the battle. He is a joke and has made the USA a punchline!

  6. God bless the Klitschko brothers. This love and devotion to their homeland is unparalleled. I wonder how many “ athletes, actors and politicians “ would follow suit? My guess is zero ! God help us!

  7. Do the Klitschko brothers understand that Russia had been asking NATO, the U.S., and Ukraine to stop deploying nuclear weapons near its borders for the last 8 yrs., due to security concerns? Would any country want nuclear weapons near their borders? The reason Russia forbids Ukraine to join NATO is that this would facilitate more of the same thing. Remember it is Ukraine which allowed this build-up at Russia and their borders.

  8. GOD BLESS THOSE WHOM FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR COUNTRY !!!!! Our athletes and hollywood elite would have been gone at the 1st sign of trouble. Maybe .5% would have courage to STAND UP and FIGHT !!!!!!

  9. Kudos to these brothers for standing up for what they believe in and for their love for their country!! May God bless them and their families for their bravery and selflessness!! Wish we had some like that in America!!

  10. My sincere hope is that this Ununited States of America never has to face the "will they or won't they" decision that the people of Ukraine face today.
    My belief is that the first of ours to leave us behind will be our politicians.

  11. God keep them safe. May the entire world turn their backs on Russia! May Biden return the U.S. gas and oil business to what it was when our true President set it up. That would hurt the Russians more than bombs if warfare. Cut off their income!

  12. Roosevelt devised the Lend Lease Act to go around the constitution to arm Russia. Biden could do the same to help Ukraine. But he won't. The American democrats are not going to fight another communist country.


  13. To the Klitschko brothers you are two great guys for standing with your country and fighting for freedom ! I sadly think a lot of American would run, especially Hollywood and some athletes!
    Biden can’t be to harsh on Russia because them and China own him . While this is going down he is in Delaware , so what does that tell you ? Tells me a lot ! 😡

  14. If they're as tough in their fight against the Russians as they were against their opponents in the ring, may they make a difference in Ukraines fight against their invaders.

  15. Wish they were politicians here in the USA we need people like that instead of the deamonrats we have today

  16. There has been literally no focus whatsoever on the corruption in Ukraine which compels the NATO alliance to ban them from NATO. Russia is in NATO. China is in NATO, and they are both about as corrupt as the day is long, plus one day. NATO has fought in post Cold War (modern) era in other non-member countries, including Afghanistan.
    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was formed right after WWII, in 1949, by Its original members were Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Eastern European countries were not original members. And it was formed as a multi-national military peace keeping force.

    But Eastern Blok countries like Ukraine which were also "ruled" by the USSR were allowed to join NATO after the fall of "the wall". Why not Ukraine? Corruption, they say is the reason; of an old and quite possibly as corrupt as any other neighboring country. But today, Ukraine is different. And the West and the EU all fear Russia. There is no other reason but that.
