Kevin Cowan, agent for Reggae Boy Shamar 'Bowza' Nicholson, who plies his trade for Russian Premier League club Spartak Moscow, says he is closely monitoring Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine yesterday, with explosions being heard across the country and Ukraine's foreign minister warning a "full-scale invasion" was under way.

However, there have been a lot of anti-war protesters demonstrating against Russia's invasion of Ukraine in the city of Moscow, where Nicholson is currently based.

Cowan told STAR Sports that he held talks with Spartak Moscow's hierarchy and they have assured him that Nicholson is very safe at the moment.

"I had dialogue with the sporting director this morning (Thursday) and he has assured me that for the moment everything is fine and everything is under control," said Cowan. "Shamar's day-to-day life is the same as it was upon his arrival.

"Everything is basically normal though everyone is aware of the tension and conflict between Russia and Ukraine. As it pertains specifically to Spartak Moscow players, Shamar Nicholson is fine and they are having their normal activities," he said.

Cowan underscored that he is paying attention to the situation and therefore he will be moving the player swiftly out of the country if the situation worsens in Russia.

"As the agent, absolutely I am monitoring the situation and naturally I am concerned, but not in a state of panic. However, I am following it closely so that I am not surprised at anytime," he said.
