LONDON (AP) — Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has provoked punitive measures across the sporting world. Russia has been stripped of hosting the Champions League final by UEFA with St. Petersburg replaced by Paris and Formula One dropped this season’s Russian Grand Prix at Sochi.

The International Olympic Committee urged sports federations to move their events out of Russia or Belarus, which Moscow is using as a staging ground for its troops moving into Ukraine from the north.

Manchester United also dropped Russian state-owned airline Aeroflot as a sponsor after the company was banned in Britain as part of sanctions.
