Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov has been removed from active duty in Natus Vincere. The Russian IGL has been removed not due to in-game performance, but because of what they call "high reputational risks for the club".
This highly unexpected move comes in the wake of a statement from the Na'Vi CEO where he said that "We are not going to work with people who live in Russia and who pay taxes to the Russian Federation".
Natus Vincere's roster for the upcoming BLAST Premier Spring Final has yet to be announced so the current roster looks like this:
Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
Valeriy "b1t" Vakhovskiy
Denis "electroNic" Sharipov
Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy
Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy (coach)
