Dear IPSC family,
We condemn the breach of peace committed by the Russian government.
At this morning’s extraordinary Executive Council Meeting the following actions were decided:
1) That the 2023 Action Air World Shoot scheduled for Sochi, Russia is cancelled.
2) That all future international matches (Level III and above) scheduled in Russia have been cancelled and have their sanctioning removed.
Following the decision of the IOC, the IPSC Executive Council decided at the meeting in IWA Exhibition to further extend sanctions so that neither athletes nor Range Officers from IPSC Russia and IPSC Belarus will be allowed to take part in any IPSC Level III to V matches.
This decision entered into force at 15:00 CET on March 3, 2022, and it is valid until further notice.
