Ukrainian player Ruslan Malinovskyi disclosed Anti-War message after his match.

Times are tough as Russia declared war against Ukraine. We can only imagine the pain Ruslan Malinovskyi and other citizens much be going through. Ruslan Malinovyskyi shared an emotional message where he pleaded for no war in Ukraine.

After putting Atalanta 2-0 up against Olympiacos in the Europa League on Thursday night, Ruslan Malinovskyi revealed an anti-war slogan on his t-shirt. The Ukrainian midfielder wore a t-shirt underneath his jersey with the words ‘no war in Ukraine’ inscribed on it, which he displayed after scoring the goal that put the Italian team 4-1 up on aggregate in Greece.


Russia’s military invasion of Ruslan’s homeplace has had a range of consequences in sports, with Russia expected to lose its hosting rights for this year’s Champions League Final, which was to be held in St Petersburg. Napoli and FC Barcelona also came together to spread the ‘STOP THE WAR’ message before their Europa League knockout match.
