Alexander Aliyev also spoke about cooperation with Yaroslav Rakitsky.

“Rakitsky is well done. I’ll say one thing. First of all, he broke the contract (with Zenit) – that’s the time. The same Andryukha Voronin, not a player, but an assistant coach, left (from Dynamo Moscow). Not me I dialed Yarik, and his friend, agent Maxim, dialed and asked if we needed something, I said that we need two drones for our group.

Two hours later, he called me back and said: “Yarik gave the go-ahead. He will bring you drones tomorrow.” Then Yarik himself wrote to me. I thanked him. I said: “Yarik, thank you very much from our entire group and from me personally.”

He answered right away. He asked what else is needed. I said nothing more. I know very well, I spoke with the same Maxim, that Yarik really wants to go here to Kyiv and go to war. I say: he has two or three more years, let him earn money and enjoy what he loves.

He was and is a patriot of this country. He was criticized that he did not sing the anthem and did not hold his hand over his heart. But this is his personal. There was a call – he came. He was released – he played on the field. He was happy when we won and sad when we lost. I can say for him: he is a patriot of his country and a decent person,” said the ex-player of Dynamo.

Recall that the war in Ukraine began early in the morning on February 24, when the Russian Federation launched a large-scale invasion. Aliyev from the first days of the invasion of the invaders joined the ranks of the defense of Kyiv. Later it became known that the former football player joined the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
