In the midst of the ongoing war in Ukraine, Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev has been using his platform to advocate for peace.

After beating Alexander Zverev at the 2023 Dubai Championships, Rublev expressed his concern for the innocent citizens who are suffering and dying as a result of the conflict. Rublev spoke against the war also in the past and he continues to promote peace also now.

"You cannot act like nothing happened because it's horrible. Like I was saying all the time, it's crazy that so many just normal citizens suffering, dying. Is just not easy."

Rublev's words carry weight, not just because he is a prominent athlete, but because he is a Russian citizen himself. His message of peace resonates with people on both sides of the conflict who are tired of the violence and want to see an end to the war.

"It's not easy that it's happening in our time when we have all the mobile phones, Internet, social media. There is kids, they just want to do TikTok. In the end happens at the same time these things. It's tough to just understand."

As Rublev pointed out, the impact of war goes beyond just those who are directly involved in the conflict. It affects innocent civilians, including children who should be free to pursue their dreams and passions without fear.

"Of course it's affecting. Doesn't matter how you try to do other stuff. The only thing I hope that soon is going to be peace in every countries. Doesn't matter where."

Rublev's call for peace is a reminder that even in times of conflict, we must not forget our humanity. We must stand together and work towards a peaceful resolution for the sake of all those who are suffering.

"I hope is going to be peace in our countries. I hope is going to be peace in other countries where is happening the wars now. It's horrible in our time, this generation, can happen those things."

As tennis fans, we may be used to watching Rublev compete on the court, but his words off the court show that he is much more than just a tennis player. He is a voice of reason and compassion in a world that often seems chaotic and divided.

Let us hope that Rublev's message is heard by those in power, and that peace can be achieved for the sake of all those affected by the war.
