On Monday, March 7th, 2022, FIFA made the news on their official website.
This decision was taken because of the recent invasion of Ukraine by the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

The governing body also announced that contracts for players and officials with Ukrainian football teams will be suspended until June 30th, 2022, should the clubs decide differently.

Concerning the situation in Ukraine, in order to provide players and coaches with the opportunity to work and receive a salary, and to protect Ukrainian clubs, unless the parties to the relevant contract explicitly agree otherwise, all employment contracts of foreign players and coaches with clubs affiliated to the Ukrainian Association of Football (UAF) will be deemed automatically suspended until the end of the season in Ukraine (30 June 2022), without the need for any action from the parties to this effect.

FIFA has declared that football clubs in Russia have until March 10th, 2022 to resolve the issue, with players and coaches linked with the clubs having until that date to do so.

In order to facilitate the departure of foreign players and coaches from Russia, in the event that clubs affiliated to the Football Union of Russia (FUR) do not reach a mutual agreement with their respective foreign players and coaches before or on 10 March 2022 and unless otherwise agreed in writing, the foreign players and coaches will have the right to unilaterally suspend their employment contracts with the FUR-affiliated clubs in question until the end of the season in Russia (30 June 2022).

These choices essentially indicate that the club’s employees will be free to play for other clubs until June 30, 2022, as they are no longer under contract with the club.
