Czech Republic bans athletes from Russia
Russian athletes in team and individual sports will not be able to participate in competitions in the Czech Republic. The Cabinet of Ministers of the country adopted the relevant resolution, agreeing with the proposal of the National Sports Agency.
This is stated on the official website of the Czech government. It also states that athletes from the Czech Republic cannot participate in tournaments and matches organised by the aggressor country.
"The Cabinet of Ministers, on the proposal of the Minister of Education, Youth and Sports, agreed to a ban on the participation of individual athletes and sports teams representing the Russian Federation in sports competitions and matches organised in the Czech Republic, and a ban on the participation of individual athletes and sports teams representing the Czech Republic in sports competitions and matches organised in the Russian Federation," the document says.
