If you follow the news, you may have heard that most of the counties have imposed sanctions on Russia. Due to that, the Russian economy has crashed down to its core.

In humanity what Putin has shown has made the world to corner Russia. Even after several peace meeting with Mr. Zelenskyy Russia continues their invasion. This Resulted in Russia getting banned from various esports programs, such as EA Sports FIFA 22, Apex Legends Global Series and others. EA tweeted, “We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine” before putting a ban on Russian Esports teams.

EA’s decision to ban Russia and Belarus comes just two weeks after ESL suspended the Russian team from Virtus.pro. Not just EA there are other sport organizers that have either suspended or banned Russian teams.

However, ESL later said that it would allow Russian teams and their players to take part in its competition only by using neutral names, that will have no team logos or nationals color whatsoever.

Even Ubisoft has also offered the same, they have also tweeted- “In light of the ongoing tragedy in Ukraine, all official competitions on our games portfolio in Russia, such as the Russian Major League on Rainbow Six Siege are suspended,”
