European Athletics stands with Ukraine and all international sports federations in condemning the deplorable ongoing Russian military action in Ukraine.
European Athletics President, Dobromir Karamarinov, immediately sent a letter of support (see here) to Ukrainian Athletic Federation Acting President, Yevhen Pronin, and held several phone calls with him and former presidents Ravil Safiullin and Ihor Hotsul, as well as Sergey Bubka, Senior Vice President of World Athletics.
Regarding forthcoming European Athletics competitions, namely the European Throwing Cup in Leiria, Portugal on 12-13 March and the European 10,000m Cup in Pacé, France on 28 May, European Athletics will continue to follow World Athletics’ policy towards the Russian Athletics Federation, currently suspended from World Athletics since 2015, in allowing only a limited number of Russian athletes to compete under the ANA (Authorised Neutral Athlete) flag. There are currently no restrictions on the participation of Belarus athletes.
European Athletics will continue to monitor the situation and make any further changes that are deemed appropriate in association with World Athletics.
