NAVI's CEO Yevhen Zolotarov gave an interview to the Washington Post, speaking mostly about the organization's current state and plans for the future. The most discussed topic became the different rosters of the club, their Russian players and the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
Zolotarov admitted, that they are considering to close down mobile esports teams, but will still hold onto the contracts with CS:GO players. There are three Russian players in that roster, and when speaking about them, CEO said that he expects them to agree to relocate and stay in the club.
The problem is, NAVI do not want their players' earnings to be invested in the Russian market, so they expect the players to emigrate to avoid paying taxes to the Russian government. This means that players like Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhaylov, Denis "electroNic" Sharipov and Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy might have to become citizens of the Ukraine in order to stay in the club.
When it comes to rosters like Dota 2, things look vague. They could be impacted with the roster cuts as well. Previously though, there were rumors that team's captain Aleksei "Solo" Berezin is looking to get himself a Ukrainian citizenship.
