In a resolution passed almost unanimously (168 votes to 2), MPs urged the government to do the same, to respond to Kiev’s strong expectations about this painful memory revived by the Russian invasion of the country. “Thanks to the NA deputies for this historic decision. The totalitarian regime of the Kremlin, neither in the past nor in the present, could destroy and will never destroy truth and justice! “, the Ukrainian president greeted in a French-language tweet.


Ukraine is pleased with the “postponement” of the IOC decision on Russian athletes at the 2024 Olympics

Ukraine said it was satisfied with the “postponement” of the IOC’s decision on the possible participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes in the 2024 Olympics in Paris, as the international body shied away from resolving the issue on Tuesday.

“We managed to achieve the postponement of the decision on the integration of Russians and Belarusians in the 2024 Olympics,” Ukrainian Sports Minister Vadim Gutsayt wrote on Facebook. He said he wanted to “work” so that no “patriotic” Russian athlete “could enter the international sports arena.”
