Veronika Khomyn, the Ukraine-born fiancée of Rams head coach Sean McVay, has a place for Vladimir Putin in the pot.
In an Instagram story shared on Sunday, Khomyn posted a photo of the Russian leader’s face printed on toilet paper, as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues.
Khomyn and McVay, who announced their engagement in 2019, voiced their support for Ukraine during a joint appearance at the Critics’ Choice Awards last March.
“Before we announce the nominees, we’d like to take a moment to talk about what’s on our minds all of us: Ukraine, Veronika’s home country,” McVay said at the time.
Khomyn, a luxury real estate broker, also said, “I stand proudly alongside my fellow Ukrainians and admire their strength. They faced unimaginable adversity with such profound grace and bravery, their fight and the way they united the world is truly inspiring. There is no place in our world for this kind of violence and our prayers go out to all the lives that have been lost.
McVay added that “even in the darkest of times, the human spirit lives on.”
“There’s a lot to be said for entertaining people, sometimes it’s the only thing they have. All of you in this room have so much to give with this entertainment that you can provide,” he said.
In February, after Russia invaded Ukraine, Khomyn wrote a heartfelt post on Instagram, in which she called the devastating events “the hardest day I have ever had.”
“I don’t know how I feel at this point,” she wrote at the time. “But it’s anger, sadness, I feel disappointment with the rest of the world, and more than anything I feel guilt that I can’t be there with my family during this time.
“In the middle of the night, our city, like many other Ukrainian cities, woke up with emergency sirens, missile explosions and military planes flying through it. Our airport was bombed and completely destroyed. This morning my brother couldn’t go to school or take our dog for a walk, my father couldn’t go to work or even get money from the bank and my mother-in-law, who is a nurse in a local town the hospital, preparing to treat our wounded soldiers. My family is not fleeing Ukraine, because it is their home. Nor should they have to leave their homeland, their parents, their siblings, just to be safe and have a better life.
