Virtus.Pro’s Ukrainian Offlaner, Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok cannot return to his hometown in Kyiv, Ukraine thanks to the coronavirus restrictions imposed by the Russian government.

Translation: Help me get home ((

The player was training with his team in Moscow for the ESL One: Los Angeles 2020 Major, but after it got cancelled, the player is experiencing difficulties with travelling to his hometown because of the closure of the borders between Russia and Ukraine.

At the moment, there are no direct flights from Russia to Ukraine. Hence, the player was set to make a transfer in Minsk, Belarus to make his way home. However, earlier today, Russia also closed borders with Belarus due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, so the player is left stuck in Moscow.

Two of the options, the player and the team could look toward are Finland or Azerbaijan. Currently, Russia only maintains open borders with these two neighbouring countries. 

Virtus.Pro is reportedly looking for alternative options to help Reso get back to his hometown. However Virtus.Pro’s General Manager Sergey Glamazda couldn’t help but have a laugh at the player’s expense.

Translation: I’ve cut all your connections and have taken your phone! Who's helping you?

With almost all of the Dota 2 tournaments being cancelled, for the time being, Resolut1on has ample time to get home and take a break.
