European Gymnastics’ position regarding the invasion of Ukraine

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Executive Committee of European Gymnastics met to discuss the sanctions for Russia and Belarus. Following the IOC advice and the FIG decisions published yesterday, the following measures will be taken until further notice:

  • The Russian and Belarussian national flags will not be displayed, and the Russian and Belarussian anthems are not played at any European Gymnastics events.
  • European Gymnastics will not allocate any events to Russia or Belarus.
  • All events currently allocated to Russia and Belarus have been removed from our calendar.  


European Gymnastics is in touch with representatives of several disciplines in the Ukrainian Gymnastics Federation. “We condemn any attack on a sovereign country and aim to support the Ukrainian Gymnastics community in any way we can, as our focus remains on the wellbeing of our athletes”, says the European Gymnastics Executive Committee. “Sports has the power to unite the world. We must use our position to force a breakthrough and the return to peace in our continent.”
