To whom it may concern: the following message was posted on July 2, 2022, to the Russian Amateur Radio Union (SSR) website announcing that the Russian National ARDF Team will not be participating at the IARU ARDF World Championships in Bulgaria this year.

The following is a Google translation of the announcement

About trips of the Russian team (SRR) abroad

The Collegium of the Ministry of Sports decided not to send Russian national teams to competitions in unfriendly countries . Unfortunately, Bulgaria (as a member of the EU) is on the list of unfriendly countries, with representatives of the national amateur radio organization of which excellent working relations have developed. The Presidium of the SRR, guided by the decision of the Russian Ministry of Sports, decided not to send the Russian national team (SRR) to the World Cup in the SRR in Bulgaria, and also recommend to refrain from independent trips to this country as sports judges.

A trip in September to the SRT World Cup in Serbia, which is not on the list of unfriendly countries, will take place.

This means those who did not wanted to go because of the Russian presence have no excuses now

Google's English translation makes it sound like the announcement might apply only to the "World Cup", but the original Russian translation makes it clear that it applies also to the World Championships.

There has been no news regarding Belarussian participation, so far as I know. 

If you were invited to participate on Team USA in Bulgaria, and this news affects (changes) your decision whether or not to attend, please let Team Selection know ASAP:
