Why Russia Is Banned From the Olympics and FIFA World Cup but Not Euro 2020

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has handed a four-year ban to Russia, preventing the country from participating at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Russia, however, will be allowed to take part in next year’s European soccer championships, when it will also be one of the competition’s host countries.
