Guess whose Crimes & Violence were behind Israel vs Russia match Cancelation.

Israel vs Russia was scheduled to meet on June 6 on Matchday 2 of Group C of League B of the 2022-2023 UEFA Nations League, but the match was canceled.

Surprisingly it is not because Israel is committing the crimes of apartheid and persecution against Arabs in the occupied territories and Israel itself, according to Human Rights Watch.

Neither according to London-based Amnesty International systematic oppression and domination against the Palestinian people. Nor unlawful seizure of lands and homes of Palestinians.

But the reason is that The UEFA Executive Committee decided to sanction the Russian Federation for starting its war against Ukraine and excluded it from international competitions. 

Because of that Russia will not participate in Group 2 of League B and will be automatically ranked as the bottom team in the group.

Consequently, at the end of the group stage, they will be relegated to 16th and last place in League B. Furthermore, will most likely be relegated to the C division.

Russian teams were also affected by this measure. They are not allowed to compete in the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, or the UEFA Europa Conference League.

In addition, UEFA rejected Russia’s bid to host the men’s UEFA European Championship in 2028 and 2032.
