Ukrainian chef turns restaurant into bomb shelter to feed civilians fighting Russian forces
kyiv, Ukraine – A Ukrainian leader takes matters into his own hands to help his country’s resistance in the war against russia – by transforming his restaurant into an air-raid shelter to feed civilian combatants Russian forces.
Ievgen Klopotenko, who won the Master Chef Ukraine award, joined “Fox and Friends” Monday to discuss his efforts and how he is helping those on the front lines to protect Ukraine’s sovereignty.
“I want Ukraine to be Ukraine,” Klopotenko told co-host Ainsley Earhardt. “I’ve been fighting for this for eight years now.[s]… There’s only one thing I can do. I should fight for my country.
“If I’m not a good soldier, then it’s better not to go to the army if I can’t kill someone,” he continued. “But I can support. I can do a lot of things that will help the Ukrainian army. They need to eat, they need to be, to have money. They need to be to have what to wear. .A lot of things someone could do and this one I can do very well.”
Although many Ukrainians fear they will run out of food, Klopotenko said he contacted suppliers to ensure he had enough supplies to feed those who were fighting.
“We don’t have a problem so far, but it’s only four days of war,” Klopotenko said. “We’ll see what happens in a week, but so far, thank God, everything is fine.”
The Russian invasion entered its fifth day on Monday as Russian and Ukrainian officials meet in Belarus for the negotiations.
Meanwhile, Russian forces offensive Ukraine’s second largest city, Kharkiv, with rockets that reportedly killed hundreds.
The UN has valued there are well over 120,000 Ukrainian refugees who have already left the country to seek refuge in neighboring countries such as Poland, Hungary and Slovakia.
This number could go up to four millions people, they warned.
