Leyla Hirsch Reacts To The Russian Invasion Of Ukraine


AEW’s Leyla Hirsch, who was born in Russia, took to Twitter on Thursday to react to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

For those unaware, Hirsch moved to the United States at eight years old. She said,


“I want to make something very clear. I stand with Ukraine one hundred percent and my heart breaks for its citizens who are suffering at the hands of Vladimir Putin. I was born in Russia. I came to the US at eight years of age and became an American citizen. I cannot change my heritage any more than any other citizen can change theirs. The mere fact that I was born in Russia does not mean that I support this brutal dictator. Everyone who would even suggest such a thing is simply wrong, plain and simple.”
