Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Russia’s participation in the 2024 Paris Olympics “is not a neutral or mostly white flag.”
Zelensky was speaking at the 36-nation summit on Friday to discuss the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes in next year’s Olympic Games.
British Culture Minister Lucy Fraser presided over the summit.
In a few days, we must meet for a common report.
The milestone came after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said it would “find a way” for athletes from both countries to compete with neutral nations.
The move was criticized amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
Zelensky told the judges via a live video link that “while Russia continues to kill, representatives of terrorist states have no place at the Games or the Olympics.”
And it cannot be covered by a camouflaged medium or white flags. Because now it is the land of Russia, where everything, even the white flag, is stained with blood.
This must be known. And this should be recognized especially at the level of the International Olympic Committee.
Speaking at the opening of the delegation, which included ministers and senior managers from countries including France, Germany, Poland, the United States, and Canada, Zelenskiy said 228 Ukrainian players and coaches had lost their lives since Russia invaded Russia in February 2022.
He added: If the Olympic principles are broken and Russian athletes are allowed to participate in any event or the Olympics, it is only a matter of time before the terrorist regime is forced to join the war. . advertise “
In January, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) suggested that Russian and Belarusian athletes could compete under either flag in Paris, saying “no athlete should be prevented from competing with a valid passport”.
Zelensky: Russian athletes are “the epitome of violence” at the Olympics.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has called for a boycott of the 2024 Paris Olympics if Russian athletes are allowed to participate, said Friday that their presence would be a “sign of violence.”
Zelensky said in the virtual meeting of ministers in the London sports hall: “The presence of representatives of a terrorist regime is an expression of violence and injustice.” Last month, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that it would “transition” if Russian and Belarusian athletes could compete in Paris under both flags, Ukraine was furious and threatened to pull out, and Zelensky said Russian players had no place in Paris.
He added: If sniper shooting and missile attacks are Olympic sports, you know which national team is one of them., ew Russian players have spoken out against the war, Zelensky said, Russia has become a country that stains everything with blood, even the white flag, Zelensky said at least 228 Ukrainian players and coaches were killed in the Russian attack.
The Story of Injustice
In a letter published on Thursday, International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach stated that the threat to boycott Ukraine violated the “principles” of the Olympic movement.
In a letter to Ukraine’s National Olympic Committee, Bach said Ukraine’s efforts to “pressure” other countries to boycott the Paris 2024 Games were “deeply regrettable”.
Northern European countries and several Eastern European countries announced a boycott at the same time.
