“After the end of the PGL Major Antwerp, the NAVI esports club excluded Kirill BoombI4 Mikhailov from the active CS: GO roster.

The reasons for the decision are related to high reputational risks for the club and are not the result of its game, ”the NAVI official website says.

The team thanked Mikhailov for his dedication and contribution to winning major tournaments.

It is also noted that the updated composition will be announced later. 

The wife of the former team captain posted a post on her social networks in which she wrote: “I love Russia very much!”

— and added an emoji with the Russian flag.
