Post: Ukraine has so far changed its mind about refusing to participate in the 2024 Olympics

Ukraine has so far decided not to refuse participation in the 2024 Olympic Games

MOSCOW, December 11 – RIA Novosti. Amid reports that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has allowed the participation of Russians and Belarusians, the country’s Acting Minister of Youth and Sports Matvey Bedny said that Ukraine has so far decided not to reject participation in the 2024 Olympic Games as inappropriate. The games are under a neutral flag.

On December 8, the IOC announced that Russian and Belarusian athletes were admitted to the Games in Paris with individual neutral status, subject to a number of criteria. Bedny said on December 10 that Kiev plans to analyze whether participation in the 2024 Olympics is in Ukraine’s interest and that participation is “impossible” if the IOC does not change its position.

“The Olympics are a strong platform on which we can talk about the war through our athletes and there is no point in losing such a platform, and I do not recommend withdrawing. We have a little more than six months to do everything in front of us.” Bedny said on the air of the TV channel “Rada” that the Russians prevented him from getting there.

The games in Paris will take place from July 26 to August 11.
