Rybus has appeared 66 times for Poland, including recently in November, but was a member of the squads for the 2018 World Cup and the European Championship the year before last.

The federation has no comment on two additional national team players who have agreements with Russian clubs. FC Krasnodar midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak as well as Sebastian Szymanski are still protected by contracts made before to the invasion, and Krychowiak moved on loan to Greek side AEK Athens after the invasion.
