Oh that is rich! Protesting the proxy war that the West created by banning Russian Nationals. From the same country that gave us Shakespeare the irony of that alone makes for good fodder in a age where everything is theater! Fake news, Fake Leaders, Fake Wars, Fake everything! This is simply Globalist Cancel Culture!
You must be a vaxxed, anti-Russia, BLM loving alphabet Groomer or else.
Given the profile of The Championships in the United Kingdom and around the world, it is our responsibility to play our part in the widespread efforts of Government, industry, sporting and creative institutions to limit Russia’s global influence through the strongest means possible. In the circumstances of such unjustified and unprecedented military aggression, it would be unacceptable for the Russian regime to derive any benefits from the involvement of Russian or Belarusian players with The Championships. It is therefore our intention, with deep regret, to decline entries from Russian and Belarusian players to The Championships 2022.
