Russia postpones Friendship Games

The so-called Friendship Games, which Russia intended to hold as an alternative to the Olympic Games in September this year and to which Ukrainians were cynically invited, will be postponed. The authorities of the aggressor country have not yet announced this, but many athletes already know about the refusal to organize the tournament.

This was reported by the propaganda publication Sport-Express. At the same time, gymnast Dina Averina not only confirmed the postponement of the competition to next year but also added that she had known about it for a long time in a comment to the Championship.com portal.

"We have known for a long time that the Friendship Games would be postponed. The main thing is to hold the BRICS Games now, and then we'll see what happens next. We know that our gymnasts and all the athletes are preparing for the BRICS Games, and then we will think about what is best," Averina said.

Sports.ru noted that the Russian authorities have once again simply abandoned their citizens to achieve propaganda goals.

"First, they did not support them with the Olympic Games, putting them before a choice: either neutral status in Paris or participation in the Friendship Games, you can't combine the two. Now, it turns out, they failed with the Friendship Games as well," the publication summarized.
