Former Ukrainian athlete Solodukha on the call to remove the Russian Federation and Belarus: “We see that the world sports community is already responding and we thank him for this” – Athletics
People’s Deputy of Ukraine, as well as former athlete Olga Solodukha, commented on the appeal to the IOC for environmental protection of the Russian Federation and Belarus from all international federations.
“The voices in different parts of the world are growing louder in the International Olympic Committee demanding to bring the isolation of Russian and Belarusian sports to its logical conclusion.
US Sports Minister Viola Amherd offered IOC President Thomas Bach the freedom of representatives of Russia and Belarus with all positions in the coverage area. Previously, Polish Minister of Sports Kamil Bortnichuk publicly gathered the IOC and all sports federations of its composition in Russia until the end of the war in Ukraine and used rapid response measures. Appropriate appeal to the International Olympic Committee of the Council and the Verkhovna Rada on the initiative of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for Youth and Sports. We see that the world sports community is already responding and we thank him for this!
Ukrainian NOC, Olympic team and the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Ukraine. It looks rather strange when even a neutral conference with harsh statements matters, and the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine is silent or says something slurred. No one for us Ukrainians will do the work for us. Therefore, it is necessary to act, to carry out, to put pressure on, so that the women and children who suffer death, the destruction of world cities and villages receive adequate retribution.
I believe that Ukraine needs to convert this speed into steps against the states that unleashed the fate, ”Solodukha wrote.
