Just four teams will take part to the Ukrainian 7s championship: a Odessa select, a Kiev select, Olymp Kharkov and Lionesses Lviv.
When I saw the title of the article I thought it was XV but it's just 7s: four sevens teams in a nation with a population almost as big as the Spanish one means that women rugby is almost at level zero over there. Maybe the sanitary situation influenced this year's participation

As far as I know only the South American 7s and the European 7s are still not-abandoned, even if without dates and venues

US Women have been back in camp since the end of last month, did a two week fitness and health screening with COVID-19 tests administered. Unlike say New Zealand or Australia there is no club footy to release players to right now.

Yes. Sudamerica Rugby was planning a 3-tournaments series, but the pandemics made it impossible. The idea now is to have just one tournament, in Uruguay (using the Valentin Martinez for it).

Expecting a long break until Sevens World Series are back and with most of our key players transitioning to XVs in order to try to qualify for RWC, Spain is holding a 7s training camp with 21 uncapped players...

The Valentin Martinez/South American Championship will be held from 26 to 29 november.
If they managed to complete it, it would be the only continental 7s championship played this year
I don't know if there will also the men's side of the South American Championship; usually the Valentin Martinez hosts only the women event

No previous international games I can trace so they'll be the 142nd international sevens team.
