Electronic Arts Inc will remove Russian teams from several of its video game sports franchises in response to the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

The game publisher said it will expunge all of Russia’s teams from its NHL 22 hockey game and three of its Fifa football games. EA’s actions follow the banning of actual Russian sports teams from international competitions, product boycotts by US companies from Apple Inc, Nike Inc and others, and the removal of Russian news and entertainment from social media platforms.
