Hayden Panettiere announced her engagement to boyfriend and Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko last October, but there have been no signs of a forthcoming wedding so far. That wedding is pretty much off the table at the moment, apparently because of the political climate in Klitschko’s native land.
You’re engaged to Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko; what’s the latest on your wedding plans?
Everything that’s happening in Ukraine definitely put a hold on things. But we have time.
Indeed you do! Apparently, this has a lot to do with the fact that Wladimir’s brother, Vitali Klitschko, is involved in reform efforts over in the Ukraine, which is… not particularly a super safe job at the moment. Vitali is apparently one of the most prominent figures in the movement at the moment, so it makes sense that that’s taking precedence over everything else.
