“There is no such thing as neutrality when a war like this is going on”
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced the international campaign aiming to prevent Russian athletes from being allowed to compete in the Paris 2024 Olympics.
“Today we will start a marathon for a fair play aimed at clearing the management of international Olympic structures of hypocrisy as well as (preventing) any attempts to drag representatives of the terrorist state into world sport,” Zelenskyy said in a video address.
“It is obvious that any neutral flag of Russian athletes would be stained with blood … Olympic principles and war are fundamentally opposed to each other.”
