Urazova began her competition in the second subdivision on the floor exercise. She advanced to the all-around and balance beam finals and helped ROC get to the team final. The ROC were victorious over the USA despite suffering several falls on the balance beam. In the all-around, Urazova placed fourth, missing out on a medal, but in the beam final, she placed eighth due to not completing an acrobatic series.


Following this, in October, Urazova competed at the World Championships in Kitakyushu, Japan, where she placed fourth in the all-around and on floor exercise, and seventh on uneven bars.


As early as March, Urazova competed at the World Cup in Doha, where she won gold on the balance beam and came in fourth on the floor exercise. Her only option was to compete as a neutral athlete because of the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) made the announcement during the tournament that Russian and Belarusian gymnasts would no longer be allowed to compete in FIG-sanctioned events after the Doha World Cup.

Urazova kept training in the hopes that the FIG would eventually reverse their suspension. At the Russian Championships in April, she came in second on the balance beam, third in the all-around and eighth on the uneven bars, and fourth in the team competition.

She competed in the Russian Cup in July and won silver in the all-around, while also placing fourth on vault and uneven bars and sixth on balancing beam.
