Boxing world champions Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko addressed the museum from Kyiv with a message: “The war in Ukraine is ongoing, it is not over. The need of the Ukrainians is great. We experience incredible suffering and are very grateful for every positive thought and form of support," wrote the mayor of Kyiv and his brother Vladimir. "Thank you to everyone who makes the Peace Festival in the German Football Museum possible. Thanks to you all!”
According to the museum, up to 60 Ukrainians have been coming together in the museum's "Ukraine Café" every day since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression at the end of February. Admission to the permanent exhibition is always free for all Ukrainians – including at the Peace Festival on Saturday, of course.
