Djokovic's father responds to criticism after posing with a fan wearing pro-Russian 'Z' symbol

A video capture of Novak Djokovic's father posing next to a man wearing a T-shirt with the pro-Russian Z symbol.

The father of tennis star Novak Djokovic responded to criticism after a video surfaced on Wednesday in which he posed with fans carrying Russian flags, expressing his support for the country.

In a statement on Friday that stopped short of apologizing, Srdjan Djokovic said he was in Melbourne "only to support my son" and "had no intention of causing such headlines or disruption."

"I was out with Novak's fans like I have done after all my son's games to celebrate his victories and take photos with them. I had no intention of getting involved in this," he said.

"My family has lived through the horror of war, and we only want peace," he said.

He added that this Friday he would watch his son's semi-final match against American star Tommy Paul from home "so there will be no interruptions... neither for my son nor for the other player."

Novak Djokovic will not comment on the situation, his representative told CNN.

Earlier this Friday, the Ukrainian ambassador to Australia had urged the tennis star to speak out on the war following his father's actions.

"I think that, in order to dispel speculation, it is important that he make a very strong statement about his position in this war," Ukrainian ambassador Vasyl Myroshnychenko told CNN.

In a video posted to YouTube by a well-known Vladimir Putin supporter, Srdjan Djokovic can be seen posing with a fan outside Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena.

The man holds a Russian flag with Putin's face on it and wears a T-shirt with the "Z" symbol on it, which is seen as a sign of support for Russia, including its invasion of Ukraine.
