The second best tennis player in the world is being banned from Wimbledon because he is Russian. He has gone on the record saying he opposes the war in Ukraine, but Antifacized officials in the UK are saying that’s not good enough. Russian flag will be banned even if he somehow changes their mind.
The world's #1 tennis player, Russia's @DaniilMedwed, has publicly called for peace and an end to war, but Wimbledon continues to suggest that's not good enough for him to be allowed to play. He must denounce Putin publicly and vocally, or else be banned:t.co/Oj3G1mxNqd
