"Russians have been subtly humiliated". IOC and FIE decisions on Kharlan "destroyed" z-patriots
The decision of the Executive Committee of the International Fencing Federation (FIE) to cancel the disqualification of Ukrainian saber fencer Olja Kharlan and allow her to participate in the team tournament at the World Championships-2023 in Milan caused a real hysteria among Russian fans. Russian patriots were destroyed by the level of anger and envy.
"This is why our athletes want to participate under a neutral flag? Do they think that those who will go will be humiliated in such a sophisticated way? In addition to signing all the papers, Smirnova had to wait 45!!! minutes to wait for a Ukrainian to shake hands?! Who allowed them there, if they themselves do not realize that this is not the time?!" users are hysterical.
Russian Federation fans call the situation a total humiliation and the IOC and Bach a "circus prop".
The propagandists of RIA Novosti were also very upset.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Kharlan defeated Russian Anna Smirnova in 1/32 World Championships 2023 in Milan. Our compatriot refused to shake hands with her opponent after the fight, who went crazy and refused to leave the track.
The representative of the Russian Federation filed a protest against the result of the duel, which was then rejected. The propaganda channel Match TV published a photo of the appeal that Anna Smirnova wrote on Olha. As a result, the FIE disqualified Kharlan from the World Cup-2023.
Our saberist herself noted that she was simply shoked by the decision to exclude her from the tournament.
We note that Smirnova is not a "neutral" athlete, as required by the regulations of the competition. The brother of the representative of the aggressor country is a military man. She is very proud of him, which is evident from the joint photos.
