Russia sues the IOC: what happened and what the occupiers demand
Russia has demanded that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) pay more than eight million dollars under one of its marketing programs. The aggressor country filed a lawsuit against the organization with the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland (CAS).
This was stated in an interview with the propaganda news agency R-Sport by Vladimir Sengleev, CEO of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC). According to him, the IOC allegedly owes Russia almost nine million dollars under the Top 10 program.
"The IOC owes us money, it has not transferred our share of the Top 10 marketing program - we did not receive $3.71 million on December 31, 2022. And this year we had a payment of more than 5 million, the total debt is more than eight million dollars. We have now filed a lawsuit in a Swiss court to enforce this agreement," Sengleev said.
Earlier, ROC President Stanislav Pozdnyakov accused international federations of "sports genocide" for excluding Russian representatives from competitions.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov furiously demanded that the IOC "get away with" the war against Ukraine.
