Elina Svitolina, now Monfils, predicted that the end of the Ukraine-Russia war is near and plans to help the Ukrainians by raising funds in her upcoming annual gala. "On Friday, December 2, 2022 I’m holding the Annual Gala Dinner, which will be held for the first time at Monaco Yacht Club.
The funds raised during this evening, placed under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, will be used to finance the programs set up by @esvitolinafoundation since 2019 including post-war Ukrainian tennis recovery program, but also to continue the logistical and material support provided to the families of beneficiaries severely impacted 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 those who support Ukraine and find new friends and partners for my Foundation. The team and I firmly believe in victory and are already thinking about the post-war restoration of the sports infrastructure.
Young talents who fled the country because of the war should know that they will soon be very welcome at home," Svitolina announced on Instagram.
Svitolina showed the impact of the Russian missiles on Ukraine
About three weeks ago, tennis star Elina Svitolina shared a few images showing the impact of the Russian merciless attacks on Ukraine that intensified in October.
Along with the images, Svitolina sent a motivational message and urged people to donate to help Ukraine. "For the last 2 days Russia has launched more than hundreds of missiles and kamikaze drones at our Homeland. Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Lviv, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kryvyi Rih, Dnipro...
The enemy is pissed off because of their own weakness at the front, taking revenge on innocent civilians; people simply going to work and taking their kids to school. I want to emphasize the fact that no rockets, shelling or attacks will break the Ukrainians.
They can take away our houses and entire streets, but not our dignity, courage, and the will for freedom. We will defend Ukraine. We will fight until we win. On these very dark days, let your emotions turn into donations. Support Ukraine and donate to @u24.gov.ua," said Svitolina on Instagram.
