His arrival was a pleasant surprise for the servicemen, who were happy to chat and take photos with their favorite athlete. Usyk also visited the Kurahivka operational and combat commandant's office, where he treated Ukrainian soldiers with a delicious salad he prepared by himself and also helped with the repair works in the unit," the statement reads.
