The Spanish “Barcelona” issued a statement regarding the scandalous video message of the team’s players Sergi Roberto and Alejandro Balde to the fans from the Moscow swamps after the team’s early championship in La Liga.
“We want to emphasize our commitment to a peaceful solution to the conflict and our belief in the value of sport as a tool for bringing peoples closer together. We once again express our support for the Ukrainian people and deeply regret that this appeal offended our fans in Ukraine.
President Joan Laporta, during his speech in March 2022, expressed his support against the background of the war, which he called “unjustified”, and remembered all the Ukrainian athletes and women who were part of the club. In addition, he offered Barcelona’s help to all Ukrainians who come to Catalonia in search of asylum.
The club president’s message remains relevant even now, as we have not forgotten our fans in Ukraine. We not only offer them our full support, but we also hope that they will soon be able to live in peace in their homeland,” reads, among other things, the blaugrana release.
