UIAA Ice Climbing World Cups in Russia

25 February – After careful consideration of all factors, the UIAA Executive Board has decided that, in the interest of the safety of all participants and to maintain the integrity of the UIAA Ice Climbing World Tour, the two remaining UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup events scheduled to take place in Russia between now and the end of the 2021-22 season are cancelled.

In addition, the UIAA Executive Board makes it clear that it condemns in the strongest possible terms any and all use of state or individual violence in pursuit of any aim or for the purpose of the settlement of perceived or actual disputes such as the current Russian actions against Ukraine.
