Russian Federation calls figure skater Valiyeva's disqualification a "declaration of war" on Russia
The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) has reacted angrily to the disqualification of figure skater Kamila Valiyeva for using banned substances. The agency of the terrorist state was outraged that the athlete was caught violating anti-doping rules during the 2022 Games, not before them.
This is stated in a statement by the DCO published on the committee's Telegram channel. The Russians complained that "war has been declared on their sport, and, as we see, all means are good in it." At the same time, the organization was unable to refute the fact that Valiyeva was using doping, which was just proved by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne (CAS).
"Why was Valiyeva's doping sample taken in December 2021 kept in a Swedish laboratory for a month and a half, despite all the deadlines? Of course, one can believe in a coincidence when the test result was made public immediately after the team figure skating tournament that won for Russia. In fact, war has been declared on Russian sport, and, as we see, all means are good," the ROC absurdly said.
It should be noted that earlier the well-known coach Tatyana Tarasova threw a real tantrum over Valiyeva's disqualification. She called the CAS judges murderers and pigs who allegedly destroyed the 17-year-old skater's career.
As a reminder, Valiyeva's analysis at the 2022 Olympics revealed the banned substance trimethazidine, which postponed the awarding of the winners of the Games' team competitions. Later, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) demanded that the Russian be suspended from the Olympic tournament. However, CAS allowed the girl to continue competing.
After that, the IOC decided not to hold an award ceremony for figure skaters if Valiyeva wins an Olympic medal in any event. Her results in Beijing were also recognized as unofficial. WADA sharply criticized Russia over the doping scandal. The figure skater herself, commenting on the scandal, could not hold back her tears during an interview.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Olympic champion and president of the Russian Wrestling Federation Mikhail Mamiashvili accused the world of lacking "humanity and compassion" for Kamila Valiyeva. And former biathlete Dmitry Vasilyev called for a coup in the IOC and the appointment of "the right candidate."
