Manchester City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko has spoken out about the situation in Ukraine and vowed “we will not give up!”

The 25-year-old took to Instagram to voice his concern as tension between his home country and Russia continues to escalate.

Alongside a photo of a map of the country, he wrote: “The whole civilized world is worried about the situation in my country. I can’t stay away and try to convey my opinion.

“In the photo – my country. The country where I was born and raised. A country whose colours I defend in the international sports arena.

Zinchenko, who began his career with Russian club FC Ufa, has 45 caps for Ukraine.
