LONDON (Reuters) – The British Olympic Association and the German National Olympic Committee are demanding the immediate exclusion of Russia and Belarus from the international sports family until further notice on Monday.

In a joint statement, the organizations said: “We call on international sports federations to ban athletes representing Russia and Belarus from participating in competitions for the time being and to suspend official Russia and Belarus from their positions.”

“We stand in solidarity with the people, athletes and the great Olympic family of Ukraine, following their unacceptable and unwarranted declaration of war.”
