"Where is the clown emoji?" Putin talks about Russia's leadership in world sport and is ridiculed online
Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin celebrated the incredibly rich history of Russian sport, congratulating Russia on the 100th anniversary of the creation of a state body for physical culture. The president of the aggressor country spoke about its leadership in the world a few days after the mutiny of Yevgeny Prigozhin and became a laughingstock online.
"We can rightly be proud of the rich history of our national sport. Our country is one of the leaders in the number of Olympic and world champions. It is gratifying that the current generation of sports workers carefully preserves the invaluable experience and creative heritage of their predecessors and successfully solves the tasks they have set," Putin was quoted as saying on the Kremlin's website.
Readers of the Sports.ru portal reminded the dictator that he had nothing to do with the victories of Russian athletes in the past, but rather deprived current athletes of their present and future. In addition, Putin was advised to turn to Lukashenko, as he did when he feared the fall of his own regime.
"The head of a foreign state is solving problems in your country, is it like a superpower?", "Now we can only be proud of the history of domestic sport, not its present!", "Thousands of athletes have been left without a present and possibly without a future", "I have to cheer for Georgians and Ukrainians, watching their football growth", "The paid doping scam at the Sochi Olympics is particularly worth noting. The Golden Page", "We can be proud, but what do you have to do with it?", "Where is the clown emoji?", "When a country has no future, you have to constantly remember the past", - people write in the comments.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Vladimir Putin ordered his henchmen to organise an alternative Olympics in 2024, which Russia called the Friendship Games.
