Brazilian soccer players trapped in Ukraine appeal for help


KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Brazilian soccer players from Ukraine’s two biggest clubs have issued an appeal to the Brazilian government. They say they are trapped by the Russian military attack on Ukraine. A group of players from Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv have posted a video together with their families from a hotel where they called for support from the Brazilian authorities. They say the borders are closed and fuel supplies have run out. Other messages were posted by Brazilian players living elsewhere in Ukraine. Brazil’s foreign minister Carlos França said any Brazilians based in Ukraine “will only be removed from that region once we have the security conditions to do so.”
