He was awarded the Soviet Footballer of the Year award in 1988, as well as two Ukrainian Footballer of the Year awards in 1987 and 1988.

In 1990, he was signed by the Italian club Sampdoria, who won their first Serie A title that season.

Oleksandr Zinchenko: How setbacks and sacrifice propelled Manchester City's left-back from a small town in Ukraine to the top of the Premier League

Posted 8/15/2019

"Oleksandr Zinchenko’s journey from the humble beginnings of his local football academy to the summit of English football has been far from straightforward.

From day one, things have never really transpired as the Ukrainian might have expected.

The boys at his local football academy didn’t pass to him, for a start, and his first steps in the senior game were delayed by 18 months after a contract dispute between two clubs.

He didn’t play as often as he would have liked during a loan spell at PSV Eindhoven, either, and you would guess he might not have expected to play left-back in Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering Manchester City team." (ManCity.com)

Ukraine celebrates anniversary of Kyiv Rus Christianization

Posted 7/28/2019

"Kyivan Rus, baptized by the prince Volodymyr the Great, Yaroslav the Wise and his daughter, the queen of France, Anna of Kyiv - all this is the history of Ukraine. Yet Russia keeps rewriting, changing and interpreting Ukrainian history - to its own taste and order." (Encyclopedia of Ukraine)

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
― George Orwell, 1984

"Where is the truth, and where is the lie? And why does the Kremlin want to appropriate Kievan Rus? Does Russia Rewrite History, Appropriate Kievan Rus to Legitimize Territorial Claims? Or wages wars, even current one to appropriate Kyiv Rus history?"—UATV English
