Gelsenkirchen, Germany (AP) -- The logo of Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom is being removed from the jerseys of German soccer team Schalke following Russia's wide-ranging attack on Ukraine on Thursday.

Schalke said the logo will be replaced by lettering reading “Schalke 04” instead following what it called “recent developments.”
