"They didn't give us any money. We're crying": Russia's true attitude to its athletes has become known
The head of the Russian Skateboarding Federation (RSF), Ilya Vdovin, complained about the lack of payments from the state for participation in the Spartakiad. The competition took place back in August, but the athletes did not receive their due prize money, which clearly demonstrates the true attitude of the Vladimir Putin regime towards its citizens.
Vdovin spoke about this in an interview with the propaganda TV channel Match TV. The official noted that not only his federation, but several others suffered a similar fate. He added that the winners of the Spartakiad were to be paid 400,000 rubles (about $5,000) each.
"We didn't get any money for the Spartakiad. It turned out that the prize money did not go to those who did not qualify for the Tokyo Olympics, although it would seem that this has nothing to do with it - we now have our own Spartakiad. It turned out that several federations were left out. Although initially it was announced that the winner of the Spartakiad would receive about 400 thousand rubles, etc. The Spartakiad was announced, among other things, as a tool to support athletes. It was held to support athletes, but we were left without money. We are crying. And so are the boys. They ask why they were chased twice," - Vdovin said.
Earlier, Olympic cross-country skiing champion Veronika Stepanova tried to ridicule the "poverty" of Swedish athletes.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, a Greco-Roman wrestling coach and traitor to our country, Denis Shestak, who is also the son of the "first minister of sports" of occupied Crimea, Georgy Shestak, was killed in the fighting with Ukrainian defenders.
