FIFA 22 Update 9 Patch Notes : EA Removes Russian Content

FIFA 22 Update rolled out recently with a big change in its content. EA has removed all the Russian content from the Ultimate Team, Career Mode, and all other modes.

EA stated in the pledge that they had begun the process of removing content. But traces like advertising boards for Russian oil firm Gazprom – were still discovered after the statement.
