Valentina Shevchenko: I am glad to be in Kyrgyzstan again

Sportswoman Valentina Shevchenko admitted that she still cannot believe that she finally managed to visit Kyrgyzstan. She said it at a press conference in Bishkek.

«It’s nice to be back in Kyrgyzstan. Finally, it happened. We have been planning this trip for a long time, since September, but it was postponed due to various circumstances,» Valentina Shevchenko said.

The UFC champion Valentina Shevchenko arrived in Kyrgyzstan on November 21. She was greeted by representatives of WEF Kulatuu Er Taimash Federation and fans at Manas international airport. She has not been in homeland since 2019.
