Russia on Monday criticised its expulsion from the World Cup and the suspension of its teams from all international competitions as “discriminatory,” in response to the latest international measure against Moscow for invading Ukraine.

“It has an obvious discriminatory character and harms a huge number of athletes, coaches, employees of clubs and national teams, and most importantly, millions of Russian and foreign fans, whose interests international sports organisations must protect in the first place,” the Russian Football Union said in a statement.
