Premier League games will not be shown on Russian television after the English top-flight suspended its agreement with broadcast partner Rambler.

Clubs are yet to take a decision on what will happen to a deal agreed with a Gazprom Media-owned organisation that is due to start next season, however.

The decision was made at a shareholders’ meeting on Tuesday as football continues to react to Russia’s invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.

The Premier League has said it will also donate £1 million to support the people affected by the war.

The Football Association has also suspended its deal with Russia, while the English Football League has pulled the plug on their Russian broadcast services.

The Premier League said in a statement on Tueaday: “The Premier League and its clubs today unanimously agreed to suspend our agreement with Russian broadcast partner Rambler (Okko Sport) with immediate effect and to donate £1 million to support the people of Ukraine.

“The league strongly condemns Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. We call for peace and our thoughts are with all those impacted.

“The £1 million donation will be made to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) to deliver humanitarian aid directly to those in need.
