Russian flower skating volleyball track and field was banned, which plushenko called a huge mistake.

After FIFA and UEFA banned the Russian national team and clubs, international individual sports organizations followed suit. Russian sports are facing the biggest test since the World Anti-Doping Organization banned them twice in 2017 and 2019 due to doping problems.
"Ice Doll" bid farewell to the competition field.
In the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games, Russian athletes participated in the competition in the name of "ROC". When winning medals, the flag-raising ceremony used the flag instead of the national flag, and the national anthem "Russia, Our Holy Motherland" was replaced by Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1.
With the official statement issued by the International Olympic Committee on February 28th, it is suggested that global sports organizations and events should not invite or allow Russian and Belarusian athletes to participate in the competition, and individual sports organizations have successively decided to ban Russia and Belarus.
On March 1st, the International Skating Federation announced that it would ban Russian and Belarusian skaters on the recommendation of the International Olympic Committee. The Russian figure skating team is powerful. At the Beijing Winter Olympics, Cher Bakova and Trousseau Eva won the gold and silver medals for women’s single skating, which left a deep impression on the audience in China.
On March 21st, the World Figure Skating Championships will be held in Montpellier, France, and Russian skaters will not be able to play. Trousseau Eva has posted a message on her personal social account, saying that she will not go to France.
The ban of the International Skating Federation has a great influence on Russian ice rink. Plushenko, a former men’s single skater and now the coach of the Russian national team, was very dissatisfied with the ban. He published a long article on his personal social account attacking the decision of the International Skating Federation. Plushenko said: "This is a huge mistake! Our figure skaters have proved that they are the strongest in the world. Without our athletes, people’s interest in figure skating will also change. We can’t participate in the competition, and the victory of the competition will depreciate, because the strongest players can only stay at home. "
In response to the spirit of global solidarity against the COVID-19 epidemic, the International Olympic Committee changed the Olympic motto "Faster, Higher and Stronger" adopted in 1894 to "Faster, Higher, Stronger and Stronger". plushenko believed that the ban of the International Sliding Federation violated the new principle of "more solidarity". He said: "The isolation of Russia from the world sports community means that Olympic values are a thing of the past.
All competitions were completely banned.
Russia is a powerful volleyball country, and both men’s and women’s volleyball teams have won world championships many times. FIVB released a message in official website on March 1st, which cancelled the Russian qualification to host the 2022 Men’s Volleyball World Championships. The competition was originally scheduled to be held from August 26th to September 11th, with 24 teams participating. The World Championships is one of the traditional "three major competitions" of volleyball, and the champion has a good quality. In 2018, the champion was won by the Polish men’s volleyball team and the Russian men’s volleyball team won the sixth place.
It is worth mentioning that the appeal of the Men’s Volleyball World Championships is very strong. If the seats on the court allow, the audience number of strong teams often exceeds 10,000. The 2018 World Championships will bring good benefits to the host countries Italy and Bulgaria. The Russian volleyball community regrets missing out on the comprehensive benefits that may be gained from hosting this tournament.
In terms of women’s volleyball, several strong teams in the Russian League have strong competitiveness in the European Champions League. Dinamo Kazan, Dinamo Moscow and Locomotive Kaliningrad have reached the quarterfinals of the women’s volleyball Champions League, among which Dinamo Kazan and Dinamo Moscow also met directly, but at present all three teams have been eliminated.
Gamova, a former Russian women’s volleyball star and multiple world champion, also expressed her views on the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on her personal social account on February 26th. She was "horrified" by the progress of the situation. Because she has retired as a coach, the ban has limited impact on her, but she has a large number of fans in China, and the fans on Chinese social networks have a heated discussion about her attitude.
The International Tennis Federation responded to the call of the International Olympic Committee in a relatively gentle way, allowing Russian tennis players to continue to participate in the Tour and Grand Slam events in their own names. This is related to the fact that tennis events are dominated by individuals.
On March 1st, the World Badminton Federation announced the cancellation of all competitions held in Russia and Belarus, and banned the national flags and national anthems of Russia and Belarus from appearing in all competition venues under the association. On the second day, it added an announcement to completely ban Russian and Belarusian players and officials from participating in all international badminton competitions.

Since 2015, the Russian track and field team has arranged for athletes to participate in individual competitions under the doping ban, but many athletes have chosen to apply for the status of "Authorised Neutral Athlete" in order to participate in various international competitions. In this capacity, the female high jumper Rasickoni participated in the Tokyo Olympic Games and won the gold medal. She also did not participate in the event that Russian President Vladimir Putin presented medals to the gold medal winners of the Tokyo Olympic Games in the Kremlin on September 11, 2021 on the grounds that she did not want to temporarily change her training plan. According to the analysis of track and field from the media "track and field base camp", Russian athletes who compete as "neutral athletes" are also covered by this ban.
Russian athletes go their separate ways.
Russia and Belarus have many excellent athletes in basketball and ice hockey, and many of them play for clubs in the United States, Canada and other countries.
According to local media reports in Canada, Alex Ovickin, the Russian star of the National Hockey League (NHL) Washington Capitalists, is facing the situation that CCM Hockey, a sporting goods manufacturer, cancels his endorsement contract. Ovikin is the core figure of the team and is recognized as one of the best ice hockey players in history. Hublot Watch, a subsidiary of luxury goods giant LVMH Group, issued a limited edition watch for him. Yevgeny malkin of Pittsburgh Penguins and Dmitri orlov, teammate of Ovikkin, are also signing players for the company. The Russian national ice hockey team was also banned by the International Ice Hockey Federation.
On March 2, FIBA officially banned the Russian national team, and the European Basketball Association disqualified Russian clubs from continuing to participate in the remaining competitions, and banned all competitions under the European Basketball Association from being held in Russia. The ban has a great impact on the schedule, and the European Basketball Association has postponed some games.
Clubs such as Dzenit Men’s Basketball Team in St Petersburg and CSKA Moscow released all foreign aid and allowed them to choose to leave. Georgian star Shengellia, one of the highest paid basketball players in Europe, left Moscow for Spain with his family.
Basketball clubs in Estonia, Poland and other countries announced that they would no longer participate in the VTB League, which was held internationally, with clubs from Russia and Belarus participating.
The influence of the ban is spreading in various sports and countries, and athletes of various sports who play for clubs in Russia have chosen to leave one after another, but there is no sign of official suspension of leagues in various sports in Russia. Due to the serious devaluation of the ruble, athletes who choose to stay in Russia may face a sharp decline in their income. Some fans estimate that Malcolm, the Brazilian striker of the Dzenit team in St. Petersburg, the highest-paid foreign aid in the Russian Football Super League, will lose 1.67 million euros, and his signed annual salary is about 6.67 million euros.
Russian athletes who play for overseas clubs are caught in a dilemma, and the situation they face may become more difficult.
