She didn't play with a Russian, but a stateless person.
I wanted to read the para but I recently lost my specs in a drunken stupor.So are "stateless" players going to be allowed in Wimbledon, Nottingham, Eastbourne, Birmingham, etc. too? I think they don't care whether a player would sign up under a neutral flag or under Russia/Belarus, I think they just care about whatever country is listed on their passport. Otherwise the players would be able to compete just like they do in Rome and RG (and also Paris 125), under a neutral flag.
In any case, they lost 2-6 4-6 so no propaganda is going to be used in Russia. Their opponents are very low-ranked players who played together for the first time, that's a really terrible loss unless Heather decided to tank the match on purpose (or maybe she simply isn't as good anymore as she once was).
Time to move on from here!
