MOSCOW, March 5 – RIA Novosti. According to L’Equipe, based on a study by Odoxa, about 72% of French are in favor of allowing Russian athletes to participate in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

From the data of the study, “72% of French believe that Russian athletes removed from competition on the international stage should be able to participate in the Olympic Games in Paris”.

According to the survey, 28% of French residents believe that Russian athletes should be allowed to participate in the Olympics under the Russian flag. About 44% of respondents agree that athletes from Russia should be able to compete at the Games in neutral status.

In February 2022, the International Olympic Committee (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 in neutral status.

On January 25, the IOC Executive Board 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. After that, IOC President Thomas Bach said in an interview with Spiegel that Russian and Belarusian athletes will be able to participate in the 2024 Olympics with a neutral flag.

The Summer Olympic Games in Paris will be held from 26 July to 11 August 2024.
