"They are crying now": in Russia issued nonsense about foreign athletes who can not come to Russian Federation
International sports federations are allegedly very upset about the fact that foreign athletes do not have the opportunity to participate in tournaments on the territory of the Russian Federation. Their reaction is allegedly due to the fact that the aggressor country has set a high standard of quality in the organization of competitions.
This absurd in its meaning was expressed by Russian Sports Minister Oleg Matytsin in an interview with the propaganda channel Match TV. According to him, Russia respects international partners, but will not be guided by their experience.
"There is no need to be oriented to international standards. Yes, we respect the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and international federations. But we have done so much for international sports, created such standards of sports events that they are now crying that they do not have the opportunity to come to us and participate in competitions on the territory of Russia," Matytsin said.
Earlier, Russia's sports minister became a laughing stock online when he commented on Russian athletes changing their citizenship. He said that such transitions are extremely few, which shows "commitment in the country".
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the IOC deprived London of competition in new Olympic sports before the 2024 Games in Paris for Britain's stance against Russia.
