Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the world of sports has imposed some sanctions on Russia. Russian teams are no longer allowed to participate in most international sports. For example, Russia was eliminated from the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Other sports have allowed Russian athletes to participate but they cannot use their flag at any time. All this has caused Russia to be excluded from the most important international dynamics of our society.
Although these actions are not going to end the war, they generate discontent in the Russian population that does not support the actions of President Putin. Even after the war ends, many of the sports sanctions can remain active, especially in international competitions such as the Olympics.
