Reztsova urged Poland to punish for the words of Sports Minister Bortnichuk about the refugee team
st. PETERSBURG, February 10 – RIA Novosti, Dmitry Edigarev. Three-time Olympic champion Anfisa Reztsova told RIA Novosti that Poland should be punished for the words of Sports Minister Kamil Bortnichuk about Russian athletes’ participation in the Olympic Games in Paris.
Earlier, the Polish Minister of Sports proposed to create a refugee team for the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes in the 2024 Olympics, which could include athletes who oppose their country’s authorities.
In February 2022, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended that, due to the situation in Ukraine, international sports federations should prevent Russian and Belarusian athletes from participating in competitions as a preventive measure. On January 25, the IOC executive committee called for the return of Russian and Belarusian athletes to international competitions with neutral status, while proposing that athletes who actively support special operations in Ukraine should not be allowed. The IOC is discussing mechanisms for Russian involvement with international federations.
