International Judo Federation suspends Vladimir Putin as Honorary President

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has been suspended as honorary president of the International Judo Federation (IJF).

The IJF announced the suspension on Sunday, Feb. 27, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

This means Putin has temporarily lost his most senior official position in world sport.

The IJF said in a statement posted online: “In light of the ongoing war conflict in Ukraine, the International Judo Federation announces the suspension of Mr Vladimir Putin’s status as Honorary President and Ambassador of the International Judo Federation.”
