Sport Ecosystem Responses to the Invasion of Ukraine

The Centre for Sport and Human Rights has created this document to summarise responses from the sport ecosystem, to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This includes responses from: Intergovernmental Organisations, Governments, International Sport Organisations and Others.  

The Government of Russia began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022, in an escalation of the war between the two countries that started in 2014. The invasion is the largest conventional military attack on a sovereign state in Europe since World War II and led to swift reactions to impose coordinated sanctions on the Russian and Belarusian regime, including sanctions in the areas of business, media, entertainment and sport. 

This document provides an overview of some of the reactions observed by the Centre across the global sport ecosystem, this list is a draft overview and by no means exhaustive. Any suggested comments can be sent to: [email protected]
