Former footballer Igor Denisov, captain of the Russian national football team from 2012 to 2016, condemned the invasion of Ukraine.

Despite knowing the problems that these words could cause him, he did not hesitate to make them public and gave an interview to a YouTube channel.

“These events are a catastrophe,” Denisov said about the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“I don’t know what will happen, maybe I will be arrested or killed after these words, but I am telling the truth as it is,” Denisov told the channel ‘Nobel’.

Denisov also said he had sent a letter to Putin asking him to stop the war.

Igor Denisov became the highest ranking Russian athlete to publicly oppose the occupation.

Russia recently approved a law that imposes up to 15 years in prison for anyone who commits any public act discrediting Russia’s military campaign.
