Khamzaev runs over Bach

The so-called State Duma deputy Sultan Khamzayev demands that the Investigative Committee investigate the president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach, under the article on interference with private life. The official accused the IOC head of "direct surveillance of Russian citizens" and conspiracy against Russian athletes.

Khamzayev said this in a comment to the propaganda news agency R-Sport. The accomplice in Russia's war crimes against Ukraine expressed an absurd opinion that the IOC has no right to check Russian athletes for compliance with the Olympic Charter and their attitude to the war.

"Given that the Russian Investigative Committee systematically and consistently records various crimes against Russia and our national security, I ask you to instruct that this act of aggression by Thomas Bach be investigated to the fullest extent of our law. This falls under Article 137 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which provides for liability for the illegal collection or dissemination of information about a person's private life, constituting his or her personal or family secret," Khamzayev wrote in his appeal.
