MADRID, Feb. 26 (Royals Blue) –
Ukraine’s women’s coach, Spaniard Lluís Cortés, has managed to leave Ukrainian territory three days after the start of the Russian offensive and has entered Poland, he himself confirmed on social networks.
“12:55. We arrived at the Premyzir station (Poland). We are finally in a safe area after 55 hours since we left Kiev. It has been a hard night and without coverage to tell where we were. When I can I will make you a Chronicle of everything lived in the last hours”, reported the former FC Barcelona coach.
However, he recalled that despite having left Ukrainian territory, concern continues for all those who have not managed to leave or have decided to stay. “We are still on the train, under surveillance by the Polish police,” she wrote.
“The contrast inside is brutal: happy faces because they have finally been able to leave a territory at war, and very sad faces, with tears in their eyes, of those who have left their own defending the country,” he said, and attached photos of several days ago in an atmosphere of celebration. “And to think that four days ago we were like this… All of them and their families and friends are the real heroes and they don’t deserve any of this. Stop war !!!”, she pointed out.
Last Thursday, Cortés, the Ukraine women’s coach since the end of 2021, and his physical trainer Jordi Escura confirmed that they had decided to leave Kiev in a van bound for Lviv, in the west of the country.
