s1mple: I'm now in Poland and do not know what is going to happen
NAVI's star Alexandr "s1mple" Kostyliev on his live stream on Twitch spoke about difficult psychological state amid the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine. The AWPer noted his unwillingness to play CS and now does not know what will happen in the future.
I'm currently in Poland. We moved there right after IEM Katowice 2022. <...> After Katowice everyone wanted to go home, but since there is a war going on in Ukraine it is impossible to get there. I want to thank Kinguin. This is a Polish organization that provided us with free accommodation. Thanks a lot.
I thought about streaming, but lately I have not felt like playing at all. I'm checking my phone all the time. Yesterday was my mom's birthday. Of course, she spent it with the lights off, because at any moment some kind of rocket hits our country. As you can see, I'm here and didn't celebrate my birthday with my mom. I am in Poland and do not know what is going to happen. <...> I don't know where I will live. I really hope to see my family. When you are far from home, then, believe me, some terrible thoughts appear in my head... It's so scary.
The next matches for NAVI will take place at ESL Pro League Season 15, which will be held in Germany. The first meeting is scheduled to kick off on March 30 against AGO in Group D.
