The Rinat Akhmetov Foundation, Together with FC Shakhtar and the Ministry of Digital Affairs, Presented a Unique Educational Project with Football Stars

The Rinat Akhmetov Foundation and FC Shakhtar, together with the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, created the educational series Digital Physical Education for Schoolchildren with the participation of sports stars.

The goal of the series is to help children exercise during quarantine. And also to motivate students, isolated from groups, to individual sports and a healthy lifestyle.

The project is a series of 12 videos for YouTube. Their main characters are the stars of FC Shakhtar Andrey Pyatov and Sergey Krivtsov. The presenters are the stars of the comedy project “Momahohotala Show” Oleg Maslyuk and Evgeny Yanovich.

“In quarantine, you need to be especially cared of your health. And the joint project of the Fund, FC Shakhtar and the Ministry of Digital Affairs does not just call on students to do this, it involves it. Digital Physical Education is a star format, as sports stars Andrei Pyatov and Sergei Krivtsov participate in it. And they were joined by the stars of television – the hosts of the comedy show “Mamahohotala” Oleg Maslyuk and Zhenya Yanovich. It was this brilliant four that made the series cool in content and very light, fun in form. Children become direct participants in what is happening. In addition, they are waiting for challenges and flash mobs from Andrei Pyatov and Sergei Krivtsov. Winners will receive sports prizes. Watch, participate and take care of your health in quarantine,” said Natalya Emchenko, a member of the Fund’s Supervisory Board at the presentation of the series in the Cabinet of Ministers.

Together with sports idols, children will be able to do exercises, try interesting exercises and gain new knowledge. Andrey Pyatov and Sergey Krivtsov will share life hacks and tell you how to choose the right diet and rest. They will show you how to get rid of bad habits and demonstrate that there are a lot of new and exciting things outside the world of gadgets. The uniqueness of the project is that the entire series of 12 and 40 videos managed to be created in just 24 hours!

“Such online lessons are more necessary than ever. We must keep fit and try to motivate people to do it. Because sport is health, it is strengthening immunity. And in the current situation, immunity is the most important thing,” said Pitmen captain Andrei Pyatov.

“Today it is impossible to change the situation in Ukraine alone. But it is possible to combine efforts in order to change the attitude towards what is happening. I believe that our joint project will be just such an instrument,” said Valeria Ionan, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation on European Integration.

The lessons will be published on YouTube channels and the pages of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation and FC Shakhtar in social networks, as well as on the portal “Diya. Digital Education” Ministry of Digital. In addition, in the near future, online broadcasts of motivational meetings with the stars of FC Shakhtar will take place on the Fund’s Facebook page.


Earlier, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation, in collaboration with the Ministry of Digital Development, created an educational series for teachers “Quarantine: Online Services for Teachers”. It allows you to master all the available algorithms that will help build the correct and effective work with pupils and parents during the quarantine period.
