The International Badminton Federation suspends membership of the Russian Badminton Federation

The International Badminton Federation has suspended the membership of the Russian Badminton Federation, the organization's press service reported.
The decision was made at the Badminton International Federation Council meeting on November 11, 2023.

The International Badminton Federation explained in a statement that the Russian Badminton Federation violated the terms of its membership due to its recognition of regional organizations from 4 regions, namely Lugansk, Donetsk, and Kherson, which according to the International Badminton Federation, “are located within another federation recognized by the international community.”

These sanctions will not affect the admission of Russian athletes who have neutral status to tournaments held under the auspices of the International Badminton Federation.

Last October, the International Olympic Committee decided to immediately suspend membership of the Russian Olympic Committee after it recognized the Olympic councils from the Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions.

The International Olympic Committee considered in a statement that the decision taken by the Russian Olympic Committee on October 5, 2023 “violates the Olympic Charter.”

It was reported that the IOC reserves the right to decide on the admission of Russian athletes individually to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris and the 2026 Winter Games in a neutral position.
