Chernyshenko: The IOC and international federations are putting obstacles in front of Russia in the way of the Anglo-Saxons
MOSCOW, March 1 – RIA Novosti, Oleg Bogatov. Russian Deputy Prime Minister, Dmitry Chernyshenko, said that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and international sports federations have begun to put obstacles to the participation of Russian athletes in international competitions “according to the Anglo-Saxon setting”.
In February 2022, the IOC recommended that international sports federations prevent Russian and Belarusian athletes from competing due to the situation in Ukraine. A number of international federations followed the recommendations, others allowed athletes on neutral status.
“We have seen how all international organizations, especially the IOC and international federations, started and continue to put obstacles in front of our athletes’ participation in international sports competitions by the order of the Anglo-Saxons. Training camps abroad have become impossible due to sanctions and other restrictions,” said Chernyshenko, “We are together. He spoke on the “Sports” forum.
“The President of Russia has instructed us to strengthen our national sports system and our unity with friendly countries in the current circumstances. At the same time, we must fulfill the goal set by the president: to bring to Russia the number of people who regularly play sports. 70% by 2030. Currently 67 million “The person does sports regularly. The target figure has been reached, 51.3%. We hope that all the measures we discussed today will lead to this result.”
