Demonstrations of support for Ukraine have erupted in football matches since Russia began its occupation of the country last Thursday.

FIFA and UEFA have suspended Russian football clubs and national teams from all matches after the country invaded Ukraine.

The World and European Football Associations have announced that they will ban international matches until further notice.

This means that the Russian men’s team will not play in their World Cup play – offs next month and that the women’s team has been banned from this summer’s Euro 2022 match.

Spartak Moscow have also been eliminated from the Europa League, advancing their round-16 rivals RB Leipzig to the quarter-finals.
