The Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine
Published on: 15 April 2022
The Mind Sports Olympiad committee is devastated and outraged by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. We stand with Ukraine and our ultimate concern is for the safety of the people in that region. In light of the ongoing situation, we are taking the following actions:
– Players from all countries will be allowed to compete in the upcoming MSO Grand Prix. The MSO does not want to exclude players based on where they reside or where they are from.
– However, players from Russia and Belarus will have a neutral flag displayed on the medal and leaderboard pages. This is already being reflected in historical results.
