Olympic champion Isinbayeva, who fled to Spain, disavows Russian army and Putin, calling Russians losers
The famous Olympic champion Yelena Isinbayeva broke her silence and responded to rumours that she had fled to Spain. The legendary Russian pole vaulter suddenly said that she had nothing to do with the Russian army and its politics, while she was willing to pose in military uniform, take pictures with Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, hold an officer's rank, and was a confidant of dictator Vladimir Putin.
Isinbayeva wrote about this on her page on the social network Vkontakte. She considers herself a person of peace and called her photos from Tenerife, which were published in the media, fake. At the same time, the Russian woman did not deny her stay in Spain, but also duplicated the post in Spanish and closed the comments under it, calling the fans from Russia losers.
"The titles that are being discussed today are nominal, as I am not and have never been in the Russian Armed Forces. Just as I have never been a member of the State Duma or a member of any party. I appeal to all those who spread fake articles and information: I am a person of peace, I have always been a person of peace and I will remain so! I have always believed and will continue to believe in the best of every person, even those people who are "ready to throw a stone at me today" just because someone said something somewhere, wrote or shared a photo from 10 years ago. Value yourself and your time, don't waste it... You still have a chance to achieve something in this life," Isinbayeva wrote.
It is worth noting that the holder of 28 world records is blatantly lying, as in 2012 she became Putin's proxy in the presidential election, five years later she joined the Putin Team movement, and in January 2020 she was included in a working group on constitutional amendments. In addition, Isinbayeva took an active part in promoting the so-called Unarmy, a children's and youth military-patriotic movement under the Russian Ministry of Defence.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Russian fans hounded two-time Olympic athletics champion Yelena Isinbayeva after her photo in Tenerife.
