“In light of events in Ukraine, we have withdrawn Aeroflot’s sponsorship rights. We share the concerns of our fans around the world and extend our sympathies to those affected,” a club spokesperson said.
United made Aeroflot its first Russian sponsor in 2013 when it became the club’s airline partner, replacing Turkish Airlines.
