On November 22, FC Dynamo Kyiv president Ihor Surkis turns 64

FC Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov extended his congratulations to the birthday celebrant.

“Dear Mr Surkis!

Please accept my sincere congratulations and best wishes on occasion of your birthday!

A modern age in the history of Dynamo Kyiv is associated with your name. You have been connected with the club for 20 years as the president and for all your life as a passionate fan; you give all your strength and time to it, rejoice in the team’s victories with all your heart and overcome difficulties together with them. Your devotion to Dynamo and great love for football inspire only respect and deserve the loudest applause.

I sincerely appreciate not only our friendship, but also the rivalry between our clubs. The matches of Dynamo and Shakhtar have always been and will be the brightest confrontation in Ukrainian football. However, today we are united by a common goal and desire for a common victory, that is, the victory of Ukraine and Ukrainian people. I believe that this day will come soon, peace and prosperity will return to our country and we will meet again at the stadium and enjoy good football at the Donbass Arena in free Ukrainian Donetsk and at the NSC Olimpiyskiy in peaceful and prosperous Kyiv.

I wish peace and goodness, good health and inexhaustible optimism, happiness and all the best to you and your family from the bottom of my heart. Let Dynamo delight you with their play, give you the most positive emotions and unforgettable moments!"
