"Disgusting": Russia insulted Ukrainian world champion for calling for the full ban of the aggressor country
Famous figure skating coach Tatiana Tarasova made an insulting remark about Ukrainian world high jump champion Yaroslava Mahuchikh. The representative of the aggressor country did not like the words of our compatriot, who called for the prevention of the participation of athletes from the Russian Federation and Belarus in international competitions.
Tarasova said this in a comment to the VseProSport portal. The former figure skater was outraged by Mahuchikh's statement, calling her a scoundrel, and expressed confidence that Russian athletes should not be sanctioned because of Russia's military aggression against Ukraine.
"Suspend Russians for life? Forever? Every person has a dream, I have this dream. Well... Will her dream come true? No, it won't come true, we will participate in competitions of different ranks. Do I think Russia will be invited soon? Yes, I think this punishment was the last one. Will we see Russians at international tournaments next year? I hope so! I hope and believe in it. And this woman is disgusting," Tarasova said.
Earlier, Mahuchikh caused hysteria among Russians after she shouted the patriotic cry "Glory to Ukraine!" at the 2023 World Cup, where she won gold. Russian propagandists demanded that the athlete be fined at the very least, calling her behavior a mess.
