Ukrainian e-sports organization Natus Vincere has transferred to the reserve Kirill “Boombl4” Mikhailov – captain of the CS: GO team. The club cited reputational risks as the main reason. Mikhailov has not yet commented on the situation.
It is very likely that Bumych was expelled due to provocative statements of his wife Lika on social networks. Once the captain even apologized for her behavior.
NAVI sniper Alexander “s1mple” Kostilov stood up for the former teammate. He said the team would never have achieved such success without him.
The decision of the club’s management was partly expected, as NAVI is not ready to work with the Russians due to the aggravated political situation.
Mikhailov has been performing for NAVI since 2019. During this time, the team has won many major tournaments, including a major and a $ 1 million Intel Grand Slam.
