The United States and its partners have urged to suspend the membership of the national sports federations of Russia and Belarus within all international federations, the US Department of State said in a statement on Tuesday, TASS reports. 

"Russian and Belarusian sport national governing bodies should be suspended from international sport federations," the statement reads, adding that such announcement was made in view of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine.

"Individuals closely aligned to the Russian and Belarusian states, including but not limited to government officials, should be removed from positions of influence on international sport federations, such as boards and organizing committees," the statement continued.

"National and international sports organizations should consider suspending the broadcasting of sports competitions into Russia and Belarus," according to the statement from the US Department of State.
