Is Russia going to be allowed to participate or even as Russia?

Not sure this has been determined. So no, I don’t think anything is finalized.

That being said, Pool B is a deathtrap

2 things that can change composition of this 2 groups:
1. RUS situation
2. JPN not seeded top 6 in the World Ranking (7). In the past, host countries not seeded top 6 were top seed in the Group A
