Many personalities reacted to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine. Mesut Özil, former Arsenal and Real Madrid player also reacted to the conflict between Ukraine and Russia which has been raging for several days. The German player posted an image on social media without adding a comment.
On the photo, we can see a little boy showing a red card to a soldier facing him. As a symbol, the little boy wears a flocked jersey in the name of Mesut Özil. With this photo, Mesut Özil says “no” to the military, to war.
On several occasions, the former German international did not hesitate to publicly display his positions. In December 2019, Mesut Özil notably gave his support to the Uyghurs.
