Today is March 8. “It’s a holiday, but I can’t celebrate it very much.”

So wrote Russian figure skater Tatyana Vorosozhar, who won a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, on her Instagram account.

Tatyana is actually from Ukraine and started figure skating when she was 5 years old. She also represented Ukraine at the Olympics, but in Sochi, she paired with Russian Maxim Trankov to win the gold medal for Russia. Trankov, by the way, is her current husband.

In the midst of all this, Tatiana posted a text on Instagram protesting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which caused a stir.

She wrote: “No sane person would think that war is a good thing. There is only one truth: peace is good and war is evil.

While the comments flooded in with praise for such a powerful statement, there were also those who worried about whether such a statement would be dangerous in Russia, where speech is controlled.

Then came March 8. This was International Women’s Day. For Russian women, it is said to be “more important than Christmas” and is celebrated on a large scale. Tatiana, however, posted a photo with a mysterious expression on her face.

I sincerely hope that a beautiful and peaceful sky will open above each and every one of you. We are so used to telling men that they can count on us. But now it is very important that we support each other.

Women are wisdom, warmth, kindness, and love. May each of us cherish these within ourselves. For it is only when we open our souls and hearts that we can walk with hope for the future.

May there be many happy moments for us. May we never cry again. May next spring, on March 8, we can once again happily and sincerely post “Happy Birthday.”

We can only hope that next year will be a holiday that puts a smile on everyone’s face.
