RUS W: Kosheleva calms things down – “Let’s live in piece”

by WoV

The Russian volleyball star Tatyana Kosheleva wants to calm the situation down between Dinamo Krasnodar and Galatasaray.



I’m sad to see all these comments, aggressive and abusive words of the people against each other. I ask everyone to be just the fans! Let’s live in peace. We all have different perceptions of the world and I would urge everyone to respect that. I was hoping my piece would convey the fear we felt during the game and help us see the importance of kindness and understanding. Let’s support our teams – that’s what the game is all about” says Kosheleva.

I saw you Kosheleva just mocking with the fans, in fact young football fans; most of them can not even recognize you. You are a true volleyball star on court, but not off court. If you are honest to live in peace, just try to protect our girls and stuff from already provoked fans in Krasnodar. I will check it from tv. Take good care of you and get well soon.

To be honest, I consider Kosheleva’s response far more appropriate than that of Galatasarsy’s Head Coach. Why has someone here tried to discredit her statements whenever she voiced anything? That’s not what sportsmanship is all about.

Let’s be frank! All Turkish fans are not typically belligerent and provocative, but at least some of them don’t live up to the spirit of sports fans. In this case, even if the tactics had been revealed by the Russian side, what rights did the fans in Turkey have to harm players and staff of Krasnodar.

Please get to the point that deserves discussing honestly. Humanity and a sense of accountability must be displayed!!! And, it’s not about politics, ethnics and languages. Treat others the way you want them to treat you. That’s a basic concept and responsibility individuals should be cognizant of.

Turkish media declared that Russia has not approved the visa request of Galatasaray president for the rematch. Now, everybody understands why all this theatre is all about and how highly civilized is Russia. They demanded the visa request by telex, yes telex. We already lost Cev Cup to Yamamay, so that is not crucial for us. Sportmanship starts from accepting defeat, that we proved already.

There are a lot of things involved with the visa process, some of which we might not know. No-one should have a privilege over others, so when the president failed in some criteria, it was not wrong that his visa application was rejected.

Seemingly you are trying to complicate the situation by combining all that has happened so far and discussing it as a single issue. That may not be right.

Another matter worth mentioning here is that how (the) fans can accept the result despite a ton of (deliberate) mistakes made by the linesmen and referees in favor of their team. Please think about this thoroughly.

Galatasaray officially declared that Galatasaray president has never applied for a visa to go to Krasnodar. It is all fake story by the newspaper. Shame on them. I am sorry instead of them.

I watched the match live, not from tv, so I did not see the rewinds of every debates. I noticed 4 mistakes of cev referees. Centoni’s two spikes seemed wide. One double touch of krasnodar setter missed, and one spike of krasnodar middle player was wide. So it is 2-2. The solution is easy, challenge system. In the end, only 3 sets were close, krasnodar won 2 of them. And the lost one, krasnodar was ahead 11-13. So, I do not think that Krasnodar suffered from refree’s decisions.
