We feel extreme sadness and shock at recent developments. We condemn the atrocities being committed by the Russian Government in its invasion of Ukraine and the support of Belarus in facilitating this.

GUK has decided that none of our Great Britain teams will play any international fixtures against Russia or Belarus for the foreseeable future, at any level of the game. This includes teams representing the Russian Paralympic Committee.

GUK will be working with British Blind Sport, IBSA (our international federation), UK Sport and the British Paralympic Association to ensure a consistent approach across all countries and sports involved in the Paralympic Games.

Сильніші разом. Together, we are stronger.
