Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric called for end to Russian invasion of Ukraine

I grew up during war and I don’t wish it on anyone, Modric said.

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has issued a message of peace over the current Ukraine-Russia story. He has called for an end to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Russian President has been heavily criticised following his move to send military troops into Ukraine amid an escalating political crisis in the region.

The La Liga star went to Twitter and said, “I grew up during war and I don’t wish it on anyone. We must stop this nonsense where innocent people die. We want to live in peace.”

Modric was born in 1985 and was raised in a period when Croatia was still part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

His family were forced to flee from their home in Zadar at the start of the Croatian War of Independence in 1991. He lost his grandfather during this war and his family home was destroyed.
