Dear Mr. Dielen and World Archery Executive Board, 

Joint Statement from the Finnish and Swedish Archery Associations on the Invasion in Ukraine.

Our Associations strongly condemn the invasion of Ukraine by the government of Russia supported by the government of Belarus. We call on the World Archery to immediately suspend Russia and Belarus from all involvement in international sports until a peaceful solution is found where all parties can take part in future sporting activities on equal terms. Current World Archery sanctions to Russia and Belarus are not strong enough and not in line with level of this crisis.

This should include relocation or cancellation of all events currently planned in Russia or Belarus, as already requested by the International Olympic Committee, and the exclusion of Russia and Belarus from all recognized sport events and governing bodies. Ukrainian athletes are forced to defend their homes and families, and unable to train and compete solely due to the inhumane actions of the Russian and Belarusian governments. Until this situation is resolved, Russia and Belarus should have no presence in international sports on any level.

Our hearts go out to the Ukrainian people who suffer under this brutal act of war, and to our dear friends in the sports family who are now pushed into a fight for survival rather than sporting glory.
