Russian Olympic champion complained about "talkers and chatterers" from Ukraine and the fact that Russia was "very badly hurt"
Two-time Olympic champion Dmitry Vasilyev has insulted the president of the Biathlon Federation of Ukraine (BFU) Ivan Krulko, who called on international federations to exclude Russia from their membership. The winner of the Games in Sarajevo-84 and Calgary-88 called the words of our functionary a PR-action.
Vasilyev said this in a commentary to the propaganda news agency TASS. The former biathlete complained that Russia was "very badly hurt", but it is impossible to exclude aggressors from international competitions, and all those who call for this are allegedly serving the leadership.
"There are so many blabbermouths now that you even get lost in their names. I don't even know who he is. Perhaps with such statements he is trying to make a name for himself or to serve the leadership in Kiev. It is clear that this is an ordinary PR-action, there is nothing behind it. It is impossible to completely exclude Russia from the international Olympic movement. Of course, now we are very badly hurt, but gradually everything will fall into place, and I wonder how all these talkers and chatterers will behave when everything falls into place," Vasiliev said.
Earlier, Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin received a lot of unflattering comments from his compatriots after his congratulations on the Day of Physical Education Worker.
