"Our heart with a map of Ukraine, thanks to the FROLOVHEART charity project, has become not only a recognizable visual symbol in the world, but a symbol of help. The hearts on the uniforms are made using four techniques, including applique, satin stitch, tatami, and stitching. Competing around the world, our athletes always have Ukraine in their hearts, and we set a goal to vividly reflect this.”
