Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is coming off a big Super Bowl victory, but the recent Russian invasion of the Ukraine hits close to home.
McVay’s fiancee, Veronika Khomyn, is Ukrainian, and she has family in Ukraine. “My thoughts and prayers are with Ukraine,” McVay said during a video conference with reporters Wednesday, via the Los Angeles Times. “This obviously hits home with me … Just watching the grace at which she’s handled this, how strong her family’s been in the midst of this, I’m just so proud to be associated with that culture. “President Zelensky’s leadership has been incredible. This is real type of stuff right here, and it gives you really a perspective … My thoughts and prayers are with so many people that are unfortunately affected by this terrible time.”
