Multiple esports organizations have shown their support for Ukraine via social media following Russia’s invasion of the neighboring country. On Twitter, G2 Esports, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Astralis, and other organizations have changed their profile picture logos to blue and yellow to represent the colors of the Ukrainian flag. In their posts, the orgs expressed their support for the people of Ukraine and underlined that they stand for peace.
“It is impossible that during this war we pretend that everything is in okay. It is not,” wrote Natus Vincere, which is based in Kyiv, Ukraine. We are devastated.”
Other organizations are taking additional steps to ensure that members of the Ukrainian esports community feel safe and have a place to stay during future events. Victor “Nazgul” Goossens, founder and Co-CEO of Team Liquid, stated that the organization will “open our Netherlands apartments for him [a player who could not travel home] and any of our friends or colleagues in a similar situation.”
