The head coach of the Russian national gymnastics team, Valentina Rodionenko, spoke out against the participation of the aggressor country at the Olympic Games in Paris because of the demands to condemn the war in Ukraine and the ban on the symbols of Russia. She called agreeing to such conditions a real humiliation.

Rodionenko said this in a commentary to the propaganda TV channel "Match TV. She urged the country to stop "standing with its hand outstretched" to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and ask for admission to competitions.



"We are not allowed to the world championship, which is a qualifier for the Olympic Games. So what if they let us in? Yes, next year we have three more stages of the World Cup. But the IOC did not remove its criteria for Russian admittance. We will not agree to these terms anyway. We have enough of groveling and standing with outstretched hands. They have already decided to eliminate the Russians, and they won't give up that decision," said the coach.


Recall that the IOC has recommended that federations suspend from competition Russian athletes related to the Russian army and security forces, as well as team sports.
