Earlier in May, the Executive Committee of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) upheld the suspension of Russian and Belarusian athletes from participating in international tournaments. At the beginning of March, the International Federation of Football Associations (FIG) had already extended the suspension of Russian and Belarusian athletes, which had been in effect since March 2022. On March 28, the Executive Committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended that international federations allow Russians who did not support the special operation as athletes Neutral to start. At the same time, the organization proposes not to allow athletes associated with the armed forces or security services to participate in tournaments.
Initially, the European Championships were to be held in Moscow, but in February 2022, the European Gymnastics Federation canceled all competitions under its planned sponsorship in Russia and Belarus due to the situation in Ukraine.
