Russia has been stripped of hosting an event on figure skating’s Grand Prix circuit next season because of the country’s war on Ukraine.

The International Skating Union said Monday it is looking for a replacement host for the Nov. 25-27 event after its ruling council took the Rostelecom Cup off the schedule because of Russia’s military invasion.

Last season, the Rostelecom Cup was held at Sochi and the women’s event was won by 15-year-old Kamila Valieva, whose later doping case dominated the sport at the Beijing Olympics.
