Military Russian aggression on Ukraine, which Belarus supported, became an issue in many spheres, including sport. Thus, Wimbledon organisers now consider a possible ban for Russian and Belarusian players from the event. The issue is now reviewed and discussed in the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
At the moment, the players from countries-aggressors are participating in the events with a no-flag rule. Also, visa issues for travelling can also be the case.
At the same time, Russia and Belarus were disqualified from participating in the tournaments like the Billie Jean King Cup and another popular event, Davis Cup. Wimbledon organisers promised to come up with the official statement in mid-May, while the competition will start at the end of June.
