Russia demands that the IOC "correct its own mistake made in February"
The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) has once again issued an absurd opinion that the suspension of athletes from the aggressor country is illegal and has no grounds. The organization criticized international organizations and demanded that they "correct their own mistake made in February."
Stanislav Pozdnyakov, the president of the ROC, said this in a commentary to the propaganda news agency TASS, speaking to the International Olympic Committee. At the same time, the official cynically kept silent about the criminal war that his country unleashed against Ukraine.
"We expect the IOC to make one and only one right decision - to correct its own mistake made last February, which is related to illegal, unfair and dishonest sanctions against Russian athletes," Pozdnyakov said.
Earlier, 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Sergei Fesikov was outraged by the conditions of admission to international competitions and added that the world is forcing Russians to "become angrier." And ROC CEO Vladimir Sengleev accused the IOC of not paying Russian athletes.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, the president of the Russian Cross-Country Skiing Federation, Elena Vyalbe, expressed an absurd opinion that Russian athletes would be persuaded to return to international tournaments.
