The moment President Vladimir Putin congratulated Khabib Nurmagomedov directly.
INDOSPORT.COM – Former UFC fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov, seems still silent about his country’s invasion of Russia into Ukraine. Is it because he is close to President Vladimir Putin?
President Vladimir Putin’s decision to carry out an attack on Ukrainian territory last week made all eyes widen. The sports world from various types of branches also condemned Russia’s actions.
Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is a native of Dagestan, Russia, is known to have not spoken about the Russian conflict with Ukraine which has claimed the lives of more than 100 civilians.
This is known through various activities that are traced by the media crew INDOSPORT through Khabib’s social media accounts both on Instagram and Twitter until Wednesday (02/03/22).
Since the outbreak of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on Friday, February 25, 2022 until today Khabib Nurmagomedov looks busy taking care of a number of fighters that he promotes.
In his latest post on Instagram, the 33-year-old posed at a training ground, whose walls are inscribed with the words of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
This appearance is very ironic considering that Khabib Nurmagomedov is known as a religious sportsman who often voices human values.
Khabib is one of the sports icons who supports the struggle of the Palestinian people during clashes with Israeli security forces at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Khabib conveyed this support through uploading videos on his Instagram account. The video contains the resistance of Palestinians to attacks by Israeli security forces inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
