Svitolina predicted the end of the Russian war
Elina Svitolina, now Monfils, believes that the war between Ukraine and Russia is coming to an end and intends to help Ukrainians by collecting donations at her next annual gala.
«On Friday, December 2, 2022, I will host the Annual Gala Dinner, which will be held for the first time at the Monaco Yacht Club. The funds raised during this evening, placed under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, it will be used to finance the programs established by @esvitolinafoundation since 2019, including the post-war Ukrainian tennis recovery program, but also to continue the logistical and material support provided to the families of beneficiaries severely affected by the war in Ukraine.
For me, this is an opportunity to once again remind everyone that the war continues. My goal is to gather supporters of Ukraine and find new friends and partners for my Foundation. The team and I firmly believe in victory and are already thinking about the restoration of the post-war sports infrastructure.
Young talents who fled the country due to the war should know that they will soon be welcomed back home,” Svitolina announced on Instagram.
