    Series of sanctions mounted against Russian and Belarusian Sports Teams

    Following the International Olympic Committee’s plea, an increasing number of sports are prohibiting Russian athletes from competing in the aftermath of the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

    Russia was excluded from international ice skating, skiing, basketball, track and field, and several tennis events on Tuesday, a day after being barred from football and hockey, Vladimir Putin’s favourite team sport. The decisions come in response to the Foreign Olympic Committee’s request that international sports federations keep Russian competitors out of their tournaments.


    Until further notice, no athletes from Russia or Belarus will be “invited or allowed to participate” in events, according to the statement by the international skating union

    In Russia’s onslaught on Ukraine, Belarus has been a significant partner.
