EA Sports is removing the Russian national team and all Russian clubs from FIFA 22, FIFA Mobile and FIFA Online, the company behind the soccer video game franchise said Wednesday. 

The move follows Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which has led to hundreds of civilian casualties and hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing Ukraine. 

"EA Sports stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people and like so many voices across the world of football, calls for peace and an end to the invasion of Ukraine," EA Sports FIFA said in a statement posted on Twitter.

The company previously removed disgraced former Raiders coach Jon Gruden from Madden NFL 22.
