Sport ecosystem responses to the invasion of Ukraine

Sport ecosystem responses to the invasion of Ukraine

The Centre for Sport and Human Rights has created a document to summarise responses from the sport ecosystem, to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

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 by the Centre for Sport and Human Rights gives an overview of the actions and reactions to this by actors across the global sports ecosystem. It includes actions by governments, intergovernmental organisations, international sports federations, and other actors such as athletes, broadcasters and sponsors.
