Russian football federation angered by FIFA and UEFA bans

Russia's aggression in Ukraine has resulted in various sanctions being imposed on the country. Football is not going to be left out either. A statement issued Monday night said Russia had been banned from all FIFA and UEFA tournaments.

The Russian Football Union (RFU) has claimed that the decision by FIFA and UEFA violates "sporting spirit" and "international sports law". They have decided to appeal against this decision.

In a statement, the RFU said: "The Russian Federation will not explicitly accept the decision to suspend our participation in FIFA and UEFA clubs and international football indefinitely.

‘We believe this decision is not in line with the rules and regulations of international competition. At the same time sporting spirit. This is clearly a discriminatory decision for many athletes, coaches, officials, clubs, national teams and, most importantly, millions of supporters outside Russia. Those who are interested should see the international organization first. '

‘This kind of work divides the world sports community; Who always adhere more to the principles of equality, mutual respect and independence than politics. '

FIFA and UEFA have banned all Russian clubs and national teams until further notice. If this situation continues, Russia will not be able to play in the 2022 World Cup. They will not be able to take part in the 2022 Euro. Russian club Spartak Moscow will not be able to play against Arab Leipzig in the last 16 of the Europa League.

FIFA and UEFA’s Statement

From the get go, FIFA and UEFA would have rather not suspend Russia totally. They had an idea as a primary concern that the Russian public group can play at the global ground. Yet, the group will be known as the "Association of Russia" and they can't utilize their public song of devotion and can't raise their banner before the match. However, later on, FIFA and UEFA moved from this choice.

Furthermore they said, "FIFA and UEFA have today concluded together that every single Russian group, regardless of whether public agent groups or club groups, will be suspended from cooperation in both FIFA and UEFA rivalries until additional notification."

They likewise added, "Football is completely joined here and in full fortitude with every one individuals impacted in Ukraine. The two presidents (Gianni Infantino and Aleksander Ceferin) trust what is going on in Ukraine will improve fundamentally and quickly with the goal that football can again be a vector for solidarity and harmony among individuals."
