Veteran CS:GO players and CIS legends, Bondik and Edward, have come together along with three younger players to create a new Ukrainian project.
The Ukrainian roster complete with a coach is currently looking for an organization to back them up.
With this, both Bondik and Edward will return to the competitive front after seven and eleven months respectively.

CS:GO veterans from the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) region, Vlаdуslаv "bondik" Nеchуроrchuk and Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev, are returning to the competitive scene with a new team that consists of younger talents from Ukraine.

Bondik announced the complete Ukrainian roster along with some other details about the project earlier today on 12th July. He will be joined by the former NAVI entry fragger, Edward, who has been away from the competitive scene for almost a year. The team will be captained by Bondik, who previously has never held the reigns for a team in his career.

Ukrainian CS:GO project announced by CIS legends Bondik and Edward

A new Ukrainian CS:GO team has been announced by the CIS legends, Bondik and Edward, along with three other younger players - Yaroslav "⁠isk⁠" Issakov, Alexey "⁠alex666⁠" Yarmoshchuk, and Stanislav "⁠fostar⁠" Ostashevskiy.

They are not particularly very young talents but have certainly made some noise in the regional scene to be included as part of this new project.

The AWPer and rifle combo of Isk and Fostar, both the 22-year-old players, have notably played for teams like Into The Breach and 1WIN, under Owen "smooya" Butterfield and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev respectively. While the last player Alex666 was part of the now disbanded Hellraisers, which also featured a full Ukrainian lineup.

So all in all, the three fairly young players are not fresh to the scene. They all have a fair amount of exposure and experience under their belts, raising the chances of success for this new project.

Further, Bondik mentioned that Oleksandr "⁠Shara⁠" Hordieyev would be coming onboard as the coach, most notably having attended two CS:GO Majors - MLG Major Championship: Columbus 2016 and ESL One Cologne 2016.

"It was my initiative to build something new from the scratch. I just wanna build something really long-term, that`s why we have a mix of really experienced players and talented ones," mentioned Bondik.

Additional statements by Bondik

The players are actively seeking help from an organization to back them up. There is no information regarding what tournament will this team be participating in and the path they wish to pursue in the near future.

For now, the compete CS:GO roster is as follows,

  • Vladyslav "⁠bondik⁠" Nechyporchuk - IGL

  • Ioann "⁠Edward⁠" Sukhariev

  • Yaroslav "⁠isk⁠" Issakov

  • Alexey "⁠alex666⁠" Yarmoshchuk

  • Stanislav "⁠fostar⁠" Ostashevskiy

  • Oleksandr "⁠Shara⁠" Hordieyev - Coach
