Rally Estonia's organizers block Gryazin's entry

The organizers of Rally Estonia support the decision of their government which is about the war between Russia and Ukraine, therefore Nikolay Gryazin's entry for this event is not acceptable from them.

The Russian driver faces many exclusions from countries due to the war between his country and Ukraine, therefore he is not able to participate in many rallies such as Rally Estonia.

So far, Gryazin has taken part in Monte Carlo, Sweden, Croatia, Portugal and Sardinia in WRC2 class with Toksport WRT and a Skoda Fabia evo Rally2, so only two events remaining for him to complete his WRC2 season.

"The Estonian Interior Ministry put the ban on Russian crews, along with the Estonian Culture Minister", a state from organizers of Rally Estonia said.

"When they saw the entry list, they made the decision. 

"Because of the war in Ukraine, we are not allowing them to come.

"When you look at what is going on in Ukraine this is just a small thing we can do. 

"I don’t want to hide anywhere when it comes to these decisions. 

"Who has the power to make them? 

"The government and the government has made the decision: Russian crews will not come to Estonia".
